  2. 5110 Data assistance please.

    Firmware V 05.28 Win XP Pro SP2.

    Before going to the trouble of purchasing a Data Cable from OS, will my phone work ok using 'Nokia PC Suite' V 6.84.10.3?

    I have downloaded PC Suite for my wife's Nokia 6131 & am awaiting on a cable for that, but as I need to order a different cable for the 5110 I am wondering whether it will be compatible.

    Or do I need Nokia Data Suite 1.2 as per the Owners Guide?

    If I do, where can I still find it to download please?

    Thanks in anticipation.

    Hi, you might well be more successful downloading Win 10 iso (make sure you choose the right one) and using that. You then also can use that subsequently if necessary for an in place upgrade repair install (useful!).

    You can find appropriate instructions in the Tutorial section (see above).

    Make sure you use disk imaging to image your Win 7 so if anything goes wrong (and it did first time for me) you can restore Win 7 from your image backup.

    Aomei Backupper or Macrium Reflect (free) + external storage medium for backup + their boot disk (make sure you create it).

    Disk image backups are REALLY useful and allow you to restore your system in a defined time and provide a full backup.

    Try this

    download iso, double click on it and UPGRADE (not clean install) by running setup.exe

    No updates required.

    You can follow this guide to get the iso.
    Windows 10 ISO Download - Windows 10 Forums

    Please do take care to use disk imaging to create an image before upgrading. If sthg goes wrong, you could end up with an unbootable system. Disk imaging is a valuable precaution which can prevent bucketloads of frustration.

    Sounds like my latest experience. I had 7 machines go basically ok, and one (my mother in law's laptop!) is killing me. Same basic thing, with 20 different errors. I just reloaded win 7 pro with a fresh install, then tried the media creation tool... lo and behold! It says "There was a problem...blah blah..)

    Its pretty amazing how arcane some of these fixes are. I'm finding it pretty time consuming to get all this stuff to work. It shouldn't be this hard. Most of the machines I upgraded required some sort of brain surgery, with some dopey error message that required reading 100 forum posts to find a way to actually fix it.

    To try to answer the question 'is '10 worth the effort'..
    1. if your PC is stable now and does what you need- why change?
    2. Win 7 full support ended in January last year
    3. Win 7's appearance and start menu satisfied most- Win 10 is
    - worse in appearance (my opinion)
    - has a much worse start menu (easily replaced)
    4. The universal apps add nothing you can't do otherwise, but there are some good ones you can get from the Store
    5. The Edge browser is default- and all defaults will be set to the new apps. Thus to get back to where you were requires work.
    6. Improving Win 10's appearance takes work.
    7. The update- if it goes smoothly- takes about 2 to 3 hours (say) assuming you download and keep an iso for in-place upgrade repair installs (very useful).
    8. You have to get used to a whole new regime of updates, and how to limit their impact.
    9. The new apps and Cortana can break if you fiddle in puzzling ways.
    10. The way we used to fix the apps now breaks them. Hmm.
    11. Upgrading may introduce driver related problems.
    12. Users have commonly reported problems here with respect to sleep.
    13. More problems have been reported about desktop icons being re-arranged than with earlier Windows.
    14. Some users have experienced odd problems with hardware that worked fine in earlier Windows.

    Etc...

    If you activate Win 10 within the year from launch you get to keep it on your current PC (some hardware changes allowed).
