Windows 10 Post 29th Blog From An Insider

Hello reader,

In several articles so far I heralded Windows 10 for a variety of reasons and decried the few negative experiences I had. These consisted namely of driver conflicts that couldn’t be easily resolved.

Now that 14 million people are jumping over to the final release I figured I’d reinstall, and see if the preview build switched automatically for me. It did not. and in fact it didn’t re-activate even after using my Microsoft Account Credentials.

Indeed after trying the “ordinary release ISO,” and the “preview build ISO,” I must warn those of you switching over that in my experience the product key is an activation issue to be wary of.

The activation key for my OEM Windows 7 obviously wouldn’t and doesn’t activate Windows 10, My preview build activation code is long gone, but according to many forums wouldn’t have worked anyway.

There is a rumor about the Enterprise validation codes still working but who knows.

My only option would seeimngly be to reinstall 7 and hope the upgrade works, or purchase a license which after months of being an insider isn’t going to happen.

The main reason I probably won’t be doing either anytime soon…

Only one of my computers had “no issues at all” with the preview builds, and sitting through installs isn’t much of a barrier. Though Windows 10, and even 7 were much slower than Linux on that machine.

To install windows 7 on a machine with an OEM code doesn’t guarantee me an upgrade to an activated Windows 10, but let’s imagine that it did, and I still ran into those old audio or video driver issues. I’m certain that would be a wasted day.

After installing Windows 7, updating it for the numerous hours that this invariably takes, then upgrading it through that path… Is it going to be my solution for anything in particular?

Nope, I have Linux Mint 17.2. I also have old versions of windows laying around that work just fine for games etc. I may eventually reinstall Windows 10, but not until I have a reason to wade through the hassle to a better and more certain result.

If you were an insider, and you wanted to reinstall… be aware of the potential hassle. And if you are looking for something that works just fine on a machine that isn’t working particularly well with Windows just look through our tech articles.

Spread the love
