    Clean Installation

    Ihave two Dell computers: a PC and a laptop. Both were installed withWindows 7. I upgraded both to Windows 10 and both worked fine. Forthe sake of safety, I did a backup of both with System Image.Afterwards I made, on both computers, a Windows 10 CleanInstallation. With the laptop there were no problems but in the PC,after the installation, and at the beginning of the updates, itcrashes to a blue or black screen. I tried the clean installationseveral times and always it ended with the same failure. Then I hadno choice: I recover from the system image backup the originalWindows 10 upgraded from windows 7 that works fine. As said beforein the laptop there are no problems until now.
    Anyideas on what can be the problem with the clean installation?

    During the Windows Updates, is it possible to do a few at a time? Or, does Windows 10 force user to do 'em at one sitting? I ask because I'm a Windows 3.1 - Windows 7 Pro person.

    In windows 10 the updates are performed automatically. We cannot control it.

    They are incremental & the User does not have to do them... one of the nice things about the Windows 10 Platform vs the past is Windows looks after them itself. The End User does not have to do anything or concern themselves.

    Except when things go wrong. See http://www.askwoody.com/2015/windows...or-0x80004005/

    When Windows Update gets an error, it will keep trying sort of like running instant replay and expecting different results. There is no way of stopping it short of delaying all updates in the Pro version. This error drove me nuts for a couple of days until I found the aforementioned link which contains a fix.
