  1. Upgraded PC from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 1903 10 Pro Search bar not working.


    I Recently performed the upgrade from a Windows 7 Pro machine to Windows 10 1903. The upgrade was successful until I would try to use the search bar next to the windows icon. When trying to Type the search bar disappears. Also when I click the Windows logo the search bar disappears. The search bar is visible untill clicking or trying to type in it. We have tried almost everything to fix the issue. Fixes tried are listed bellow. We have found that if we do the Upgrade to later versions of Windows (1709 to be exact) the search bar works fine. We have tried to do updates to Windows 1903 after successfully getting 1709 installed and working but once the machine is on 1903 the search bar breaks again.

    Windows 10 upgrade problem, no input accepted

    I really hate having to come here and ask for help, but I really am stumped. It hurts my geek pride. I have a PC with fairly modern hardware in it. It has a p8p67 pro in it. I have tried upgrading windows 10 on it twice now. Both times I have had the same result.

    After windows finishes upgrading it goes to the log in/set up screen. I can't do anything. No keyboard or mouse input is accepted.

    I will list some, or hopefully all, of the troubleshooting steps I have tried:
    • Move keyboard and mouse to different USB ports.
    • Try different keyboard or mouse.
    • Restart computer, repeatedly.
    • Google for related issues.
    • Update Bios, because why not.
    • Create boot media and revert to windows 7.
    The windows 10 system restore boot media works fine with keyboard and mouse. All USB ports work in windows 7. I don't know what is wrong. I suspect that windows 10 is lacking a driver of some sort, but since the computer accepts no input I have no way of checking for which driver let alone installing it.

    Please help me figure this out. If I have to revert back to windows 7 again, I am not going to get it upgraded to windows 10. Thank you in advanced.

    Query on Clean installation of Windows 10 Pro on Windows 7 Pro PC.

    Original Title: Windows 7 Pro (from MS upgrade key) to Windows 10 Pro - Clean Install

    My Gateway NV7923U X64 came with Windows 7 Home installed.

    I purchased an upgrade key from MS and upgraded to Windows 7 Pro.

    I need to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro and then do a clean install.

    • Will my existing upgraded Windows 7 Pro now upgrade to Windows 10 Pro automatically, or do I need to perform additional steps?
    • Will I be able to do a clean install and have Windows 10 Pro after upgrading?

    Clean Windows 10 (?PRO?) install

    I have bought a legit "Windows 10 Pro" key of a key website. It is legit since i'm currently using it for over a year now. I currently have Windows 10 Pro installed on my PC and I want to do a clean install. I just can't find the windows 10 Pro download in the tool. But if i could use a windows 10 pro key with a normal windows 10 install, I'll be good to go.
