I figured I'd start a thread for Windows 10 upgrades to get feedback from the community as well as help others troubleshoot issues.  For starters, I'd tell everyone to look at the Windows subreddit for common solutions: https://www.reddit.com/r/windows

 

 

Applications with known compatibility issues with Windows 10:

  • CPU-Z
  • Speccy
  • Speedfan

 

Known environment changes that can complicate Windows 10 upgrade:

  • Registry edits, specifically ones that make it such that the default program files and user files are located on another hard drive.

It's basically Windows 8.1 under everything so whatever works with Windows 8 should work with 10.

They're trickling in slowly but you can force it by going here: https://www.microsof...nload/windows10

Did you download the iso and try to install yourself or were you notified that the upgrade was ready for your system?

I will be upgrading from an ISO and I will be doing it soon. I will, however, have a Windows 8 VM on standby in case I need to do something and Windows 10 just won't allow me to. Not mention, I have my gaming laptop that I will be keeping on 7. I should be good. 

 

I'm looking forward to it. I played with the RC and BETA in virtual machines and I like some of what they have done. As with any OS, there will be things that I will tweak (some of the UI stuff (as always)), but all in all I think they did a decent job this time. Might be one of the cleanest releases I've seen yet. I'm optimistic.

I had to install a previous driver (352.84) for my Geforce 480 (for PhysX) to work. No other problems so far.

Did you guys go before you were told to by the app? If so, where do I get my key? If not, I guess I will need to wait....
