    Upgrading Win7 to Win10, concerned that I will loose my Lexmark Pro205


    History:
    2 Win10 laptops in our home.
    1 Win7 desktop that I have refused to allow Win8.x or anything to touch....


    But, I have now met crunch time, because TurboTax refuses to let me use Win7 with their software.

    I am using a Win10 ASUS TUF laptop for daily use of late, I keep the Win7 Desktop for finances and critical data storage.

    Lexmark does not have support for their Pro205 printer after Vista/Win7.

    What I need to know, is will the printer drivers be lost when I allow the Update to Win10 to be run?

    :)

    Win7 to Win10 upgrade issue ... 0xC1900101-0x30017 and then 0x40017

    hi, Andre,

    yes, i think my note did say that i already created the bootable ISO on a DVD and started the Win10 upgrade from there. i already contacted the vendor and he gave me a list of Win10 drivers, suggested the bootable ISO upgrade method but did not recommend
    a new BIOS update.

    My PC is a ZOTAC CI320none with an Intel processor running a licensed Win7 Home Premium SP1.
     
  3. Win7 Gateway Computer fails Win10 Upgrade

    I am covered under the late Win10 upgrade ending Dec 2017.

    I attempted 6 upgrades to Win10 -- all failing - each time trying to address a potential concern.

    Win10 Upgrade says that the computer is fully capable for the upgrade and begins downloading the files then moving in the installing process.

    The process totally locks up at 75% at which time a reset is applied. The computer restarts and continues to 81% thereby totally locking up again.

    The reset - restart at this point goes into Win7 Home recover mode.

    One of my attempts was to totally load a fresh version of Win7 from my installation disk and making sure the latest Win7 drivers were being used.

    A internet search suggested that this model of Gateway computer was not able to be upgraded to Win10 yet the Win10 upgrade process stated that all was well.

    Please note - no anti-virus - no programs - just a fresh Win7 installation.

    I did find some Win8 Gateway drivers available but did not load them as I did not know if that would break the Win7 OS.

    After one of the Win7 recovery process completed, Windows reported the upgrade failed do to error C1900101-4000D. A Internet search of the error code states it is do to a driver related issue - hence my concentration on drivers.

    I would like to upgrade this computer but I have no idea as how to proceed.

    Can some direction be provided.

    Thanks
     
  4. Upgrading Win7 to Win10, concerned that I will loose my Lexmark Pro205

    Win7 --> Win10 upgrade

    When MS made the Win10 free upgrade available, I upgraded my win7 system to win10. Some time after that, I had a disk failure and reinstalled win7 because it was my understanding the free win10 upgrade was no longer available. That was a year and a half
    or so ago. Now I was just reading that, in fact, Microsoft keeps that information on a server and that I could, in fact, reinstall win10. Is that correct? I would really have to put win10 on and then find out it wasn't licensed and I had to go back and reinstall
    win7.
