    Works great here but it is a new machine preinstalled though I still had my concerns.

    You reckon they are watching me then Cobalt. Now where's that thong?

    ok finally got back to being able to try it.
    then got "we couldn't update the system reserved partition"

    reading some posts on the web they say to change the partition using various drivers you can download.
    I am running a samsung SSD 840 EVO 250 GB and a Hitachi HD 1 TB.

    Which ones do I change?

    I haven't done this, so...

    I expect you'll see a small partition on your boot drive (SSD). That is the system reserved partition. Before you can expand it, you'll need to shrink your much larger partition on the SSD. The change probably doesn't need to be much. I'd guess 100 MB.

    I've heard this tool works well: http://www.minitool.com/partition-ma...zard-home.html

    I'm assuming the SSD is your boot drive. I've only seen a system reserved partition on the boot drive, and normal partitions don't span across multiple drives. Unless I'm missing something, the HD shouldn't be involved at all.

    You will not have to do anything to your HD Drive, if it is not a boot drive.

    I'm missing too many details to advise. If you haven't reset the system partition yet, what did you do?

    Why do you need a partition on your SSD if you have a 1TB for storage?

    I got the HD first then 2 yrs later put in the ssd. I am guessing that is the default setting somewhere. Frankly don't know enough to know if I need or don't need.
    I did have to enlarge it for the windows download to work.

    Qicmee I did the partition change and it worked easily(or easily enough once i understood the tool to change it). It was at 100mb before.. since I had room i bumped it to 1 gb. I am guessing I should drop it down again. Not sure why windows needed it a specific way to install 10 but it did.

    On another note I do like the email settings alot more. Runs just like my phone and pushes it all in an easy .. but separated template.

    Trying to find a way to change my account on the admin .. now I have to freaking type in a password each time it boots up. Anyone know please post or show me a link.
    When I sign on it says unauthorized then I can click in the right corner on my profile and sign in(i am set as the admin).

    Yup, the system reserved partition can be relatively small; I'd guess 300 MB is plenty. Or, leave it as is at this point. Sometimes we're smarter to accept the awesome power of "close enough".

    The hidden system reserved partition is automatically created by Windows when it's installed. Mainly, it contains the boot loader for when the PC starts up. In Golden's case, his previous installation didn't make the partition big enough for Win10. Many users have complained about Microsoft automatically creating a problem and then forcing users to manually fix it.

    worked perfectly.. thank you.

    Now .. why can't i log onto twitter using that app.

    Also on a side note. Play a game called cloud raiders on my phone(relives boredom at work).... anyway to sync the phone up with windows 10. I think I might have to wait until windows 10 gets pushed to my phone though. The live account is accepted by the Xbox system .. just no cross referencing that I see.

    One thing I found is Win10 does NOT like to upgrade when your CPU is overclocked. I had an MSI 970 G43 board with a Phenom II 965 BE chip, OC'd to 3.7, and Win10 blew up as soon as it restarted after the upgrade. I backed it down to stock and it ran fine after that. I then saw that the MSI board had my DDR3 1600 RAM running at 1333 speeds, so I changed it from the UEFI and booted back into Win10 .. where it promptly blew up AGAIN ! Now, to its credit, it did gracefully recover and refresh the OS (a refresh, meaning it kept the existing profile and data, rather than a full reset that wipes everything).

    I'm very used to the OS, having had a Windows based Nokia 930 phone for years now, but I have yet to install it on either my main rig or my workbench rig. It would benefit both with DirectX12, which is the hands down only reason why a gamer would be persuaded to change at this point, but I don't think I will have any choice but to upgrade come July.

    Not cool. Hardware sensitivity by Win10 is a problem I hadn't heard about.

    I have no real info, but I believe Microsoft will extend their free upgrade offer. Win10 remains the OS they want us running, not vice versa. They have established the upgrade value as $0. if they now try to charge after July, upgrades would stop entirely.

    Either way, Win7 security updates continue until Jan. 14, 2020.
