I have a backup HTPC which I plan to get ready before Jan 2020 cutoff of W7.
Why should I ever mess with a great running system to install alpha code.
I even found MyHD's 2x video playback feature which starts sometimes after a file system glitch. That file system glitch is driving the active / backup HTPC switch. I am even going to look at W10 1909.
No, it's not something that a Restore point could help, the CW_EPG tuner setup is just way too labor intense. That's why I made the large post about how the user could take control of setting up CW_EPG. No comment was ever made.
I have spent 10 hours already trying to copy the SSD with W10 64 Bit system installed to a regular disk. Windows is fighting me every step of the way.
That may have been done, but how can it be booted without going into the BIOS and changing what could boot, W7 / W10 32 Bit OR W10 64 Bit. I had to do that BIOS change before, without changing it was one or the other, 32 Bit or 64 Bit W10.
After testing that the W10 64 Bit disk can boot again, with or without the previously needed BIOS change then the SSD will be erased (?????) and the W7 / W10 32 Bit boot disk can be copied to it.
The SSD was going to be wasted as I see no possibility of running W10 64 Bit on a HTPC ever.
W10 1909 is almost completely installed. It is too late in the day now, I have to go back to watching HDTV, that's what I am spending so must time on.
