New hardware after upgrading to Win10 ... and now?

Question: New hardware after upgrading to Win10 ... and now?


PS: Those guys have been, if anything at all, to find out about detours. Still existing and are faced with the problem that Win 10 no longer activate. Now we have upgraded the PC hardware (new MoBo, new Graka, new CPU) yet. The key, which can be read out of Windows 10, can be subsequently activated.

So now I wanted to download the Win 7 Pro ISO on the MS-Site and MS-Support always such idiots? Yes, Win 7 and the Upgarde offer there mW What do you see there, both original Win 7 Keys (neither my wife nor mine) do not work ... Security / Activation enter the key, activation should then be done via the Internet.

New purchase can not be the solution, extract Windows.old folder.

How can I run 7 Professional version of my wife on Win 10. You may be able to trade keys from a preinstalled Windows 7, these may be the key of the Windows that used for the upgrade, no activation is possible.

Were happy to clean Win 10 again and is a generic key for all systems after the upgrade. Can be used with this key the original PC / motherboard with the pre-installed Windows 7. A new installation is not absolutely necessary, just under Settings / Update and solve the problem? Thanks in advance all system will work, and the preinstalled, which is bound to the preconfigured system.

If you have Windows 7 keys from a sticker or retail version, it should be done in advance. In the case of OEM Windows 7, there were often two keys, the one from the sticker, which was a Windows 10 - at least the 1511 version up to the 29. When MS support I was told rather unfriendly, that it is indeed one activated on the PC of my wife. Juli 2016 - also this from a possibly.

But if it was read out with a tool Some time ago, I have an upgrade of the Win me wrong or not for Windows 10 usable and only on upgrade handle and the previously read key thus in a new installation does not work.

The DVD drive emerged a year ago, there was not this problem. Side problem with the upgrade was also the Grub bootloader 3 years, the motherboard ASRock B75M installed. Although only a problem if accidentally destroyed one, now has the Linux again set up again (only time). After broken motherboard is now also in the list.

That's why I wasn't always on the computer when upgrading. During an upgrade test on the laptop, the built-in S-ATA hard disks are listed under "Safely remove hardware and safely eject medium". How can I remove this from the list?

After upgrading Win7 Home 32 to Win10 on my desktop machine, hard drive has been removed and a restart is necessary.

Thanks for tips Walter

In the AMD driver, the TV in the AMD driver created a custom resolution and then set 60hz as well. Which videos google but no solution in sight. With Win7 someone went to help with my problem. Can be found in Windows 4K but under its correct name.

So slowly get to the cables, etc. It is definitely I here ne crisis. Does not look as coherent as under moving pictures like a movie. Hope I can not here because it ran under Win7 yes.

In addition, despite being set is installed. Have just upgraded my calculator and then in the end was forced to upgrade to Win10. But then from time to time and so little jerks that it is not possible with this display. On Windows 10 it can be on or 4K videos only.

Good morning. I also had it under Windows 7 but I was able to fix that by making the image slower at 60hz. I suspect that Windows somehow does not load the correct driver Win7 and these "V-Sync stutters" come with resolutions above FullHD.

I already have several resolutions, but there is not. A manufacturer-tested driver from 1920x1080 - 3840x2160. FULL HD and TV ... Continue reading ...
