  2. Windows 7 to 10

    Good afternoon

    Have on my professional computer, two partitions.

    1st one has the Windows 7 installed and I would like to upgrade to windows 10

    2nd one has the Ubuntu, that I wish to remain as is.

    Will it be possible to proceed with the windows upgrade without "damaging" the 2nd partition?

    Thank you all in advance

    António

  3. Error during factory reset

    reset from where

    recovery partition ?

    recovery media ?

    as far back as vista the upgrade process has been known to damage the recovery partition or the boot info that points to the recovery partition etc.

    have seen the windows upgrade process totally wipe the contents of the recovery partition on some systems

    leaving it empty

    on other systems

    have seen the recovery partition removed during the upgrade process leaving unallocated space

    if you are attempting to roll back

    there is a 30 day window where roll back is possible

    after the 30 days passes roll back is impossible

    possible partition damage after Windows 10 uninstall?

    I notice you have the HP Assistant there... This tool does updates itself, and is probably not Windows 10 compatible. It could be related to your problems... I would do a clean Windows 10 install. At this point, back up everything you have then wipe your entire disk.
