There is a scheme that MS uses to judge how "different" the hardware in your system is. You can Google to read details. My experience is if you are on Intel and stay with "similar" motherboards,...

You like Edge? With no adblocking available? I don't care how fast it is if I'm blinded with ads.

If anybody thinks you can upgrade a 7 or 8.1 system of "questionable pedigree", you can't. But it's only day one, so give the wizards a week or two.

I think the NFL asked for Brady's lawyer to look at the messages and deliver only the ones related to deflategate. He wasn't asked for his phone.

Until Rovi gets straightened out, it is a good idea to check what recordings are scheduled. It's at "recorded TV/scheduled". If your desired show isn't listed, schedule individual recordings.

I think you are missing the fact that you can't do a clean install until after you do an upgrade. Only then will you get a key in your Windows Store account. But your license to the OS you upgraded...

I don't know about a preview that was an upgrade from 7 or 8.1. Mine was a clean install.

My understanding is upgrading overwrites the 8.1
But just run imaging software on 8.1, then when you upgrade to 10, image again. Now set up dual boot system and restore both partitions.

My guess is that your results were just "random". I've gotten it to work on one machine, and an identical machine failed. Who knows?

It's funny (not really) but y'all getting Rovi EPG are going "VCR mode", and those OTA folks who can't get WMC to switch to Rovi have to do the same thing, since zap2it isn't providing new data.

I find build 10240 boots really fast on a SSD, but really slow (both to load and to shutdown) on a regular HDD. Much different than on Win7. My "test" machine uses a celeron, so YMMV.

I have WMC on two PCs. The one that has a cable card switched to Rovi. The one with only OTA is still zap2it. It missed one day of updates, but updated today.

Interesting. Can you expand a little on 'read vs write'? Which files should be on SSD, which on HDD?
