    That might work for now, but I'd be surprised if it keeps working: AIUI, once you upgrade for free to W10, you have lost the right (the licence) to use your previous OS (W7 or 8), unless you roll...

    I can't say if your problem exactly matches one I had, but I am dual booting, with XP on an SSD and W10 (TP) on a HDD. I suffered from numerous problems with installing new builds, mostly ending up...

    I have been using my gmail account as my MS account login since the start of the Insider program with no issues. I just don't ever access my emails via Outlook.com.

    That may be necessary for proper operation, but I am pretty sure my 9-year old BIOS doesn't have that function, but it still worked.

    That quote is just a limitation of the WD Backup software. Use one of the freely available imaging programs to make a partition (or drive) image. You won't be able to boot ftom an image, but can...

    In case the BIOS checks are freezing the damaged drive (and the boot sequence) out, have you tried plugging it in after Windows starts? I had a feeling I had done that with my SATA internal caddy,...

    I'd second that - pdf is a pretty efficient format, although as the pages will (presumably) be saved as graphic images, significant 'snow' on blank pages will take some storage space. You are likely...

    I have successfully used Media Coder - its not what I would call an easy user interface, but I typically manage to get output files some 10% of the (usually from smart phones) originals. Since most...

    I ran the code in Excel 2000, and it mostly worked. I had to remove the second 'sheets(1).select, this produced an obscure error. I think your problem is the setting of LR: initially, unless you...

    Rather brilliantly (not), it seems Ms have woken up to the fact that some updates are damaging - their solution is to allow you to disable an update, but only after you have installed it once. ...

    Yes, I think so. My notes of the fun I had when i first installed W10 suggest I found help here regarding resetting the MBR from inside W10 using Bootsect.exe, but I think that didn't work, and I...

    I must say at the start that I have no idea why your XP partition is invisible to the W10 boot option. That said, I am dual-booting W10 (IP) and XP, but using the XP MBR rather than the W10 one. ...

    Yes you can. Obviously, that's no use if the HDD fails, but if the boot partition gets corrupted, it could save you. Better than nothing! Try Treesize (free) to see where space is being used.

    Many will (may) recommend Easeus, but it once gave me trouble, and I fell back on a 2009 vn of Paragon Partition manager (now up to v14). I have not used this later vn, but have never had trouble...

    You have an answer re the recovery partition, but to avoid a clean install, you should check what is using the space on the drive: Treesize free does an excellent job of showing where the space has...

    I have no experience of this problem, but if a fresh install fails, it must be picking up something from earlier that causes it to do so. Have you tried removing all trace of profiles from the old...

    My understanding is that W10 uses the same boot mechanism as W7 & 8, and it will, if left to its own devices, find and include the options to boot XP & W7 in its boot sequence. I don't think it...

    I don't know about the updates, but my 2006-era AMD Athlon 64x2-3800 runs W10 fine. My concern before I installed the TP was whether the cpu had the required NX/XD capability, and once I found that...
