  1. Hard drive crashed after windows 10 upgrade


    Is there any assistance Microsoft can provide due to my hard drive (HP Pavillion 15Z Laptop - 2 1/2 years old) crashing after a windows 10 upgrade was completed.

    The hard drive will need to be replaced.

    :)

  3. Windows 10 upgrade rant..

    The free space shouldn't prevent you from upgrading to built 1607. I manually upgraded my own laptop which had only 9gigs free space left on the system drive.

    I unzipped the Windows 10 Pro anniversary edition ISO on my D drive, and started the upgrade process from there. At one point the installer complained about not having enough free space on the main drive, i just had to point it to the D drive to proceed to the next step. Now the rollback installation is stored there and doesn't clog up the C drive anymore.

    In your case you could insert a large sdcard to act as the required rollback drive, i'm pretty sure it would do the trick.

    Oh and by the way, if you want to further compress your System files:
    • do a search Command Prompt, right-click it, and select Run as administrator.
    • Type COMPACT.EXE /CompactOS:always and hit Enter.
    You'll will gain anything from 2 to 4 gigs free space after it's done.

    Upgrading to Windows 10 after a hard drive crash

    I intended to upgrade this PC to Windows 10, to match the others in my house, but the hard drive crashed in mid-June. This was a Dell hybrid drive, and it simply wouldn't boot.

    I finally got the hard drive replaced today, and Windows 8.1 installed to get this PC back booted to windows.

    But as I'm downloading windows updates, I see that the upgrade to Windows 10 is no longer available.

    So am I now cut out of the free upgrade just because my hard drive crashed and I didn't get it fixed quick enough?

    Help is appreciated.
