got my pc mostly up and running, computer crashes a lot less than it did with windows 10. I think my parts were too old for the drivers to work properly even after a fresh install she crashed at the slightest amount of hard work. 

 

Only major down side to going back to Win7 besides the 8 days worth of updates, is that Win 10 is much much more optimized. My computer works 2-3 times has hard to keep cool now.

 

If i didn't get affected by all the little growing pains i would think win 10 is great, but i already use 1 title that was released too early don't need more headaches. i get access to educational licenses so ill wait a year or two before purchasing a licence for 10$, for those that have to pay full price i think i would stick with it.

Honestly your best bet is to perform a clean install... it is the best approach (sounds like you are half way there - all you need to do is create the media and perform the clean install)

 

(Pasted from a different thread I posted in this forum)

 

For anyone still having issues here - your best bet is a true clean install.

 

However, you need to validate your hardware for the upgrade, first - so you do indeed get your upgrade (and keep for life of you hardware); but you will need to upgrade your OS as it stands, then create media, and then use that media to wipe your drive clean, reformat, and reinstall...  effectively a true clean install.

 

Time is running out for the free upgrade:

 

PM me if you need guidance.  Here is a good YouTube video that walks you through the entire process.

oh ive done clean installs in windows 10, the old school in me doesn't allow me to upgrade an OS, clean install or nothing.  The errors i was getting 3-4 times a day in Win 10 do not show up in win7. Its been almost 2 weeks since the re-install, of windows 7 and i have not had a single crash or BSOD. 

 

I'll wait another year, the cost of 10-15 $ for a windows 10 code is not worth the headache of my computer not working properly. I completely understand why others would work through it, it is not a cheap package outside of Education.

Interesting you are having issues with a clean install.  I have a custom built PC and found Win 10 Pro to be the most stable and lightest / fastest OS I have used on this platform.

 

I agree completely otherwise.  Win 7 Pro x64 was a great OS (once a BSOD - due to bad nVidia Drivers), and I was nervous moving away from such a stable OS.  I am uber pleased with the results so far though. 

 

Wish I could help you sort it out.

 

Best,

C-
