[ZDNet] Microsoft starts pushing Windows 10 as a 'recommended' update - Page 12  

post #111 of 176

Thanks. I'm waiting with great interest to see whether it will show up on my systems that were previously upgraded to 10 and reverted to 7.

on my mom win 7 running dual p3 i had to hide all w10 updates because its obvious it can't run win 10
don't want to accidentally run those updates
post #113 of 176
Win 10 is great on new hardware and use win 7 for old hardware like laptops because if you upgrade its likely to be a disaster, manufacturers do not release new win 10 drivers for old hardware.

To check, I installed win 10 on 5 year old laptop, result was bad sound due to generic drivers, track pad don't work etc, hot keys don't work etc.
I reverted back to win 7 and use aegis script to disable certain windows updates.

Did that to all of the computers for my family back in September and I have yet to see any of the telemetry or forced upgrade updates in the past 5 months.

Interesting, thanks for the tip.

For now I'm good with my scheme because I've been running the same Windows 7 install since April of 2012 non-stop.


However, one other poster said the other day that he was having problems with a fresh install of 7 not succeeding at installing updates and while I was browsing from something else I found this on Microsoft's site, so I'll leave it here, may be of help to someone:

Windows updates and service packs may fail to install if there are corruption errors. For example, an update might not install if a system file is damaged. The DISM or System Update Readiness tool may help you to fix some Windows corruption errors.

This tool is being offered because an inconsistency was found in the Windows servicing store which may prevent the successful installation of future updates, service packs, and software.

Even worse is that many people updated their Vista based systems to Windows 7 when it came out and thus the likelihood of there not being problems with GPU drivers, Wi-Fi, sound, etc, is even lower.

Well, naturally Microsoft would recommend you upgrade to their latest version of Windows. I mean, wouldn't any software provider recommend the latest iteration of their software?

no it isn't, if i don't have any prior copy of windows i wouldn't be having Win10 for "free".
or in other words, its a "free upgrade", not a "purchase for free".

seriously, whats so hard about making Win10 just 0$ on their store?
