  1. How best to install d/l-ed copy of W10


    Hi How best to install d/l-ed copy of W10 :)

    I have a formatted HDD ready to take my W10 install. I will be d/l-ing from the MS site, and have the choice of creating installation media to install: USB flash drive, DVD, or ISO file

    Obviously, the end result will be the same, but what is easiest? Anyone know the size of the d/l? Not sure if I have FDs large enough.

    Thanks in advance.

    :)

  2. Want to D/L W10 but not install at this time

    I want to D/L W10 but not install it yet. I have W10 installed on a LT and have not mastered it so I don't want to install W10 on my DT computer.

    I stated the Download process and that completed but then it said it was preparing to install, since I didn't want it installed I canceled the download.

    At what point am I given the option of creating an iso file?

    Thanks Don

  3. DIVX player D/L fails

    When I run the Windows update troubleshooter it says I have a missing or corrupt service registration and that I should reset it but it didn't tell me how! I know nothing about PC's (obviously) so I don't know how to reset it or why I should have to.

    I am using Win 10. I had Win 7 and accepted the free download from MSN when it became available. It's not a bootleg copy and everything else so far has worked and D/L'ed fine.

    The DIVX installer D/L's fine but when I try to run it (as adm.) I get a pop-up that says
    "an error has occurred. Please check your internet settings and try again."


    Windows also suggested I modify the register to solve the problem. (with my very limited PC skills I wouldn't do that on a dare!) Sounds dangerous!

    As I stated before, this DIVX D/L is the only problem I have had with any D/L's.

    I haven't made any changes to my PC. I did uninstall the old DIVX player when the new player DL failed per a suggestion from another tech site but that didn't help.

    thanks for the help,

    How best to install d/l-ed copy of W10

    Installing my registered copy of W10 on a new PC

    I have recently purchased a new PC. It comes with a copy of W10 home installed (not activated) on a 1TB HDD but I also have a 240GB SSD installed.

    I was wondering if it is possible to copy my retail version of W10 pro (activated by digital license) on my old pc onto the new ssd and what steps I need to take to do this?

    Many thanks,

    Pete
