  2. In Regards To W10 Forced/Free Update

    If you are faced with a computer that shipped with W8 downgraded to W7 in which the HDD was pulled and destroyed. Is there a definitive way to determine through the BIOS if W10 was attained through a forced or free update from the original OS?

    My understanding is the embedded OEM license would not have changed and should be viewable in BIOS. Short of installing the Home for Home or Pro for Pro version of W10 I'm quite acutely curious how else you would be able to know.

    Thanks for any insight here.

    Edited to remove OEM computer. The computer is a HP desktop.

    Latest W10 update reset my GPU drivers?

    I checked when I got home. It actually installed the same driver I already had, i.e. 391.35. And removed my settings. *Wtf :wtf:

    I installed the new driver (397.64) myself, but is there any way to avoid this for every W10 update that is released? Pretty annoying.

    Installing W10 on this Laptop

    HP Stream 11 under Windows 10 - Touchpad not recognized.

    Are you making sure you are trying the correct driver for the WiFi... They list Broadcom, Intel, and/or Realtek.

    Also, try to run the installer as an administrator install.

    If that fails... try extracting the files and manually install the driver.
