    D:\ is not accessible after win 10 pro install


    Hi I just did a clean install of win10 pro 64 and D: drive is not accessible. D: is a partition on my operating system disk. Now I know that I can go to properties/advanced and give myself permissions to access drive D: What I want to know is why windows doesn`t give me access to D: like it normally does to my other drives and if this properties/advanced/permissions is the only or best way to fix this? Regards Edition Windows 10 Pro Version 21H1 Installed on ‎2021/‎08/‎05 OS build 19043.1110 Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3530.0

  2. access BIOS settings in Win 10

    I have an 8-year old computer running Win 10. I need to access the BIOS settings. It used to be the holding down the F2 key during startup would bring up the BIOS screen in Windows computers. But this no longer works. A web article listed a complicated
    series of steps leading to a reboot . . . but still no access to BIOS. Any suggestions?

  3. Reloading - retrieving my installed WIN 10 PRO

    Thanks for the quick and detail response. Just to make sure I understand your procedure, here are the steps I will do:

    1. Download Win10586PESE-x64 v16.07.07 (new) ISO and burn to a DVD.


    2. Place DVD in computer and power ON boot from DVD
    3. Run Macrium Reflect. Under the restore menu will be a utility to fix Windows startup problems. Try that utility to see if that restores booting to Windows 10
    4. When Windows startup utility finishes, remove DVD and power OFF computer
    5. Power ON and see if WIN 10 boots.
    6. If WIN 10 boots, check for normal operation, etc.
    7. If WIN 10 does not boot; re-install full WIN 7 disk image.
    8. Download and save Windows 10 ISO file tofolder on C:\ drive
    9. Down load and save:WinISO file on C:\ drive.
    10. Run and install WinISO according to http://www.winiso.com/support/tutorials/mount-iso-in-windows7.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener">
      [*]Run WinISO, open the Windows 10 ISO file stored on C:\. I assume there will be some type of BROWSE menu so you can select the Windows 10 ISO file?
      [*] Click "Mount" and a file menu of the files in the Windows 10 ISO file will appear.
      [*]Double click to Run setup.exe.from the WINDOWS 10 ISO file menu
      [*]This should upgrade your Windows 7 to Windows 10 - This same procedure as the “Free” upgrade from WIN 7 PRO to WIN 10 PRO. When finished WIN 10 PRO will be installed and ALL WIN 7 PRO program files, drivers, printers and data files from WIN 7 PRO will be available for use. To be explicit this is an install of WIN 10 PRO and a “TRANSFER/ UPGRADE of WIN 7 PRO program files, drivers, printers and data files. This is NOT a CLEAN INSTALL of WIN 10 PRO


    JUST WANT TO MAKE MAKE SURE I UNDERSTAND THE EXPECTED RESULTS


    1. The newly created WIN 10 PRO install should activate based upon your previously activated upgrade. I assume the setup program will access some Microsoft data base and find my previous activation?


    Please excuse the long list, but I find it better to ask questions now, rather than try to unwind some misunderstanding later.

    I do appreciate your time and support!

    Thanks

  4. D:\ is not accessible after win 10 pro install

    Cannot access D drive since upgrading to Windows 10.

    Hello Judy,



    Thank you for replying quickly with the status of the issue.



    Please reply to few more questions:


    • Is the D: drive located on the same hard disk or on different hard disk?

    • Did you have any important data saved on the
      D:
      drive?


    If the D: is saved on another hard disk and you are unable to access it, I suggest you to format the drive completely and check if the issue is resolved.



    To format the hard disk, follow the steps below:




    • Press Windows logo + X keys on the keyboard and select
      Disk management option.

    • Right click on the D: drive and select
      Format option.

    • Wait for the formatting to complete and check if the changes are effective.


    Write to us with the status of the issue for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.
