  1. We can't tell if you have enough space to install Windows.


    Here we are five years after this began happening, and today, August 12, 2019, I got this message, after the initial check said there was plenty of disk space, after Windows Update fiddled around for 10 minutes, after the download was done, it's ready to install and it says "We can't tell if you have enough space to install Windows." I have over 100 GB available on the HD.


    When I update Ubuntu, not only does it just work, but I only have to reboot once per month when the kernel is updated. And Ubuntu Linux updates every single program on the computer, while it's at it. Never a problem. Works silently in the background. Ubuntu is absolutely free. Why doesn't this proprietary, for pay operating system work as well as absolutely free Ubuntu? This is disgusting.

    Step 1

    Step 2
    install all drivers from the cd that came with the god damn motherboard *common sense*
    Step 3
    update windows
    Step 4
    install misc etc crap like flash java etc etc
    Step 5
    Install GPU drivers
    Step 6
    go back to using your pc without issue.

    If you having an issue installing a driver that worked before you formatted or wont install on a fresh build, sometimes this means hardware damage
