    In addition to my 8,1 machine, I also have a Win7 machine that won't upgrade to Win10 because the video isn't compatible. I hoped the fix the Davis McCarn suggested (...

    You nailed it! Thanks very much.

    I looked at the many patches that were available, but didn't notice there was one hiding in there for the Win10 upgrade, just not seeing what was in plain sight.

    Although I enjoy Win7 on a Dell Inspiron 531, the nags to upgrade to Windows 10 finally got me to make the move.

    I disabled Fast Boot in the power options, rebooted, brought up the boot menu in BIOS mode - and it still had only the single option "Microsoft boot menu". No other choices.
