Win 10 touchpad issue sorted.  Decided to peek into BIOS settings, and found that Touchpad had two optione - Basic or Advanced functions.  It was set to Advanced, which likely requires drivers that ha

You have 12 month to take up the free upgrade.   I'll wait 6 months to let the beta bugs get ironed out before taking the plunge.

Wrong thread Colin.   This is the Windows 10 upgrade thread, not the finally lost my virginity thread.

Upgrade to Win 10 done on laptop, looks nice, and boots up clean.  Running JRiver to my DAC, no issues.  This is the primary use for the laptop, so that's good.  I'll probably take this on vacation as well, will get more of workout then.

Ran the update on the 30th and it locked out my network.  I had Hyper-V installed and it messed up the virtual switch.  Good thing I know something about computers and was able to fix this.  I reported the bug to them.

 

Otherwise, I've been running the preview for a couple of months and I like the push back to desktop mode.  Even the Tablet mode is more consumable by Windows 7 users.  Not as much of a context switch.

So I guess this is the least Microsoft has ever fucked up ever.

 

Super easy install over here, everything runs perfectly (games, audio, etc), love the interface. Pretty much perfect for me.

So, I've been planning to reinstall Windows 7 Ultimate in Bootcamp on my replacement Macbook Pro (after the previous Macbook was bent concave in the car accident).  From what I'm reading, if I do that then I can upgrade to Windows 10 and have it run better in bootcamp, right?

Just wasted at least an hour and a half trying to run the upgrade on my last laptop only to realize I was running the a 32bit exe on a 64bit machine. Stupid error didn't point this out and I tried about a hundred other things first... Stupid user :palm:

I upgraded on the i7-4790/SSD/32GB RAM machine on day 1. Took hour 45.

I upgraded on the i7-3537u/SSD/4GB ram. Took 28 minutes.

Both came from Win 8.1 installs, and I'm not sure why the (much more powerful) desktop took longer (SSD in that one is slower, but it's still a current model SSD), but W10 has been great for me after a restart for the nVidia driver to realize what's up.

I AM a bit frustrated by the fact that the guest account doesn't work in W10. I think they took it out in June or July. There's still a way to dig in and activate it, but it's really buggy. (I'd let someone use my comp, but I tend to always lock my machines when I walk away, out of habit.)

Upgraded a cheap Acer laptop that my grandson has.  Light use ... mostly Minecraft and the odd school project.  It was full of crap from Win 8.1 and buildup from errant surfing, so downloaded Win 10 to USB for a clean install.  All good ... wiped HD to single partition and installed Win 10.  Happy, happy, till I saw that laptop's touchpad was not recognized.  I beliieve it is synaptics.  Downloaded latest drivers from both Acer and Synaptice.  No love.  Ran setup from each, but problem is that Win 10 does not SEE nor Recognize that there is a touchpad.  Lots of on line chatter and references to same problem, but no fix.

Any advice from the HC braintrust?

Yeah, I hate touchpads too, so contributed a mouse to keep things going.  Jack (grandson) likes using mouse for quickness, so all good.

Curious, though, as to how widespread this is, and how quickly M$soft and hardware makers will take to resolve.

You might try to look through any available updates for Windows. The needed driver could be among those.
I've upgraded an old Samsung NC10 from Win7 -> Win10, and the Synaptics has been exchanged for PS/2 compatible driver from Microsoft, and works just fine
As a last resort you might try the Synaptics driver from Lenovo as it seems to work under Windows 10

Posting from my newly upgraded surface2. Pretty awesome!

 

Love the tablet conversion settings and it's very responsive.

Did you run into any major problems?  I am thinking of upgrading my SP3.   Have you tried the pen since updating?

Sorry to hear of your Win10 upgrade issues, Gene.

My upgrade process went without a hitch for the most part, but predictably, LR/PS runs like shit now.  I hate fucking Adobe.

Have you tried re-installing the Adobe programs? (just on top of the existing?)
