Did the upgrade to my Win 7 laptop. Took less than 30 min. I had "Reserved" my upgrade, so it downloaded in the background, and I selected the install time. So far so good. Was able to keep Windows 10 Professional on the tablet. Turns out the last build I got WAS the RTM build.

More later.....

Sounds good, Mark H . The huge data pack was already on your system in 'trial' version.. so very little update needed to complete the install.
Hope Win 10 is as promised.. I will have to upgrade also, as everyone else to stay current in this crazy life.

Heard a bit of funny news about why there will be no "Windows 9" version. Seems that "nine" sounds too similar to "nein" in German, which means "NO" or "NOT".

Karl, was testing Win 10 on my 11' tablet, not my laptop. Laptop has become my primary system, and wasn't going to test on it. Still, it downloaded Windows 10, and I selected the install time

Ah! Some differences in the 'tablet' and 'laptop' versions.
Having a high-speed Internet connection would make a big difference in the DL time for my "folder" rig.
For me, DSL would take maybe 1/2 a day. Wish I had cable!

No difference between "Tablet" or "Laptop" versions. Apparently whatever OS version (Home or Professional) I was testing at release, I was allowed to keep.
I had Windows 7 Home Premium on the laptop, and it upgraded to Windows 10 Home.

From what I have read, the 'tablet' and 'laptop' versions are similar. Storage space is limited with tablets, maybe 64 GB. Laptops usually go to 500 GB or higher. Windows installs only what is required for the system.

Makes sense, since Windows 10 is touted as "One operating system for all your devices". Desktop/laptop, tablet, and phone.


Only had one issue so far: Windows camera app. When closing the app, I get " IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" error, followed by a reboot, only on the laptop. I was able to re-create the error simply by opening and closing app again. Error report sent. Does not occur on the tablet. Dell camera utility works fine.

hello everyone, long time no see. I took the plunge and upgraded to windows 10, and I like it, the install was flawless, it got all the correct drivers , so far I'm impressed with it. but there windows explorer Edge need major improvement , it to complicated for the novice to customize , but it is faster than the old explorer , so far so good, at least we got some or most of the old features back , its seams Microsoft are back on the right path again
