Can’t be bothered waiting any longer, I’m installing Windows 10!

So in my previous Windows 10 post, I had noted that I was going the patient approach, and that I would wait for Microsoft to push the Windows 10 update to me in due course; that was last night. I was expecting a pop up window on my laptop this morning asking me to update to the latest version of Windows – Windows 10… however all I got upon checking this morning was a big fat NOTHING!

Win10_Blog3

Anyway thanks to this link, I was able to skip the line and proceed with upgrading my Windows 8.1 edition to Windows 10.

Just to reiterate the article’s first step, it is very important to BACK UP your data prior performing ANY upgrade.

Once I backed up my data, I had went to Microsoft’ Download Windows 10 link and clicked on ‘Download Tool Now (64-bit version)‘ and hit run once prompted.

Obviously check and download the appropriate version applicable to your PC.

Win10_1

Once initiated, I selected Upgrade this PC now

Win10_2

Once it runs through the initial checks of the PC, updates, it will then prompt advising the applications that will NOT be brought across to Windows 10.

Hit Confirm and then Continue

Win10_Blog7

Select what you would like to keep (i.e. Keep personal files and apps, keep personal files only or keep nothing at all) with a clean install – hit continue.

Win10_Blog8

It will run through with the initial installation process. As you can see, once the initial setup is completed, the below image will appear;

Win10_3

Once competed, it should provide you with how you would like to login (using your existing login profile, or to create a new one). Once confirmed (using my previous Microsoft ID account) I had logged in successfully and found Windows 10 had finally installed.

After the initial setup and configuration, I’m happy to say that I’m a Windows 10 user.

Win10_4

It’s probably safe to say I’m well behinf the 8 ball when it comes to using Windows 10 however I’m sure I’ll be able to figure out the ins/outs of it along with the pros and cons. I’ll do a bit of a review in the next couple of weeks.

Good luck with your installs out there!

      Hey Marielli, what’s the model of HP you’re having issues with? It appears to potentially be a driver issue at first look but I’ll need a bit more information. What OS were you using prior to the upgrade and more importantly, how did you upgrade? 🙂

        Oh right, so you were prompted with the message that you’re ready to upgrade.. slightly different to the way I did it, but yeah, flick us through the model of HP and we’ll go from there. If I find anything similar to your situation (with a solution), I’ll let you know!
