  1. problem with old installation windows 10


    i have a 128 GB SSD with originally windows 8.1 Pro that was subsequently updated to Windows 10, I have the original Win 8.1 disks and serial number.

    During a recent windows update I lost the use of the USB ports and could not boot past the windows logo. Searching the internet I tried countless different solutions none of which worked. I went into advanced options tried restore, undoing updates both important and general and a whole load of other solutions but still to no avail.


    I have now given up and transferred all data from the hard drives to other PCs and would like to reinstall Windows 10 back on to this SSD. I have tried to find the "new" wundows 10 serial number but nothing seems to work.


    I have a long history in IT but my recent experience is over 10 years ago and what I am searching for is a beginners guide to getting a working copy of Win 10 back on the SSD without having to buy a new licence.


    Can anyone talk me through the process.


    Your cooperation and help would be appreciated

  3. New install Windows 10 (issue solved)

    It's good that you're not experiencing any issues. Unfortunately many folks are, a quick Google search will show the same info im offering the OP.

    Heres a couple examples:

    Here

    Here

    It's basically what I mentioned above, small issues here and there ,but nothing to end your day.. for the most part.

    I know it's anecdotal, but for my experience 95% of the time it's perfectly fine. The issues I've run into wouldn't be enough for me to roll back , but they would be enough (had I not installed it yet) ,to avoid it for another couple weeks which is why I'm suggesting it to the OP
