  1. help!!!! URGENT!! Windows 10 upgrade started automatically??


    Hi, I want to try out Win 10 and i had it reserved and i'm planning to install it in a separate partition of my physical secondary drive. But today Windows Update started the upgrade automatically, first downloading it and now "Preparing the install". My question is, is it going to ask sometime in which drive i want to install it?

    :)

    Just restart your PC and then use a restore point. But that will not allow you to install it on a separate Partition. If you let it upgrade and then activate it you can download an ISO and perform a clean install but you will lose all of your programs.

    When that update windows comes up you can cancel it and then hide the update in Windows Update.

    Let it install. You must first do an upgrade install, then after the upgrade has been installed you down load the Media creation tool again and create media (DVD or USB ) and do a clean install. You would select "custom install" to select the correct hard drive during the clean install.

    It is an upgrade, and you must activate it prior to full install on the other drive E/partition.

    Image your win7, upgrade it, activate it, then restore image, and then do a full win10 install where you like using an iso

    W10 "upgrade" is just that, an upgrade from a qualifying OS to W10. This is not a "two for the price of one" situation, if you use Win7 you cannot upgrade/use W10 on the Win7 license at the same time. It's either one or the other, the qualifying OS license is only for that OS or W10 by itself, not both at the same time.

    There may be ways around that but that's not how this "free upgrade" is designed, right now I'm still on the insider program and am dual booting 7 and 10. That, and purchasing another license for a qualifying OS or W10 is the only legitimate way to have both on the same computer.

    Pull the plug to your network , then restart your machine and then delete update KB3035583. Then restart again. Unless you want to go through with the upgrade.
