    how do I start to upgrade to windows 10


    Currently I'm still with Windows 7 ultimate.
    How do I start to upgrade?
    where from?
    Didn't see any upgrade to windows 7 related to this upgrade.
    Which type of windows 10 will it be? I expect more than home premium for my ultimate version.
    thanks
    I couldn't find relevant post regarding the how question. most post deal with upgrading 8.1 (which I already did on my laptop)

    :)

    HELP!! - Toshiba driver update for Toshiba Hotkey Driver - Error 0x800f0203

    I'm now running Windows 10 upgraded from Windows 7 & I have the same continuous problem with the update

    • Toshiba driver update for Toshiba Hotkey Driver - Error 0x800f0203

    I tried your Method 1 to fix it which said changes have been made to my computer & to try & update again which failed.. again & the same message above came up again. My laptop is secure as I run Norton 360, so what should I do next to try & fix this problem?
    My laptop is a Toshiba satellite L650.

    Thank you

  3. nokia lumia 710 bluetooth plays music but phone does not work on toyota

    Thank you for your reply Mark.
    I tried the phone with a bluetooth headset Motorola H700 that works with other phones and it did not work with the Nokia Lumia. I can hear the phone ringing through the ear piece/headset but no conversation can be heard.
    It is a Windows phone 7.5 and the OS version is 7.108773.98
    The car is a toyota corolla 2013 and it has the following bluetooth specifications:
    Ver. 1.1, or higher (recommended: Ver. 2.1+EDR or higher. It supports the following profiles: A2DP, AVRCP, HFP, PBAP and OPP that the phone does not support. Phones like Samsung Galaxy works on the car. I never used this phone with bluetooth considering
    that it is my wife's phone.
    I just updated the phone minutes ago and I tried it again but it did not work.
    Thank you so much for your help

    how do I start to upgrade to windows 10

    Windows 10

    Windows 7 Ultimate upgrades to Windows 10 Pro.

    NOTE: It appears as if the Windows 10 upgrade/download pages are down at the moment (blank), just keep trying, hopefully they come back up soon. I expect Microsoft is updating something on them.

    You can follow this tutorial to upgrade to Window 10. Bare in mind that the most issue we have on this forum is from people upgrading from Windows 7 so you might want to consider doing a clean install after the upgrade. Remember to backup your files!

    Hmm my experience with an upgrade was very frustrating so I decided to clean install to a new drive.
    Also if you do a clean install onto a small drive it can be then cloned to a larger one, and like me activate the 10 with your Ultimate key (I used my 7 Pro key for mine) when done*Wink

    But it is your budget I guess but this way gives you an out (you still have the 7 on the original drive) if the upgrade goes wonky.

    thank you for your quick answer
    clean install is out of the question. I'm too old for that and I have too many applications. I hope they'll work after the upgrade.
    my experience with upgrading from 8.1 was that everything worked except a change into local interface language.
    I had to download and install the English (US) pack yo overcome this stupidity.
    Next time I won't upgrade from microsoft.

    how do I start to upgrade to windows 10

    ---------------------
    upgrading my 8.1 (from my laptop) ended up with me automatically activated and all applications working.
    I have image of C (the system ssd) so I hope I could go back if something horrible happens.
    I'm not considering a clean install since I'm too old and I have too many applications.
