    Feature update to Windows 10 version 1709

    My Windows 10 update to version 1709 is so so so slow (4 days already, and now it is at "Preparing to install 67%") and it slows down my Notebook PC to a point of not responding. Last night the "Preparing to install was at 66%, and this morning it is
    at 67%. Is this normal? Can I do something to speed up the installation process?

    no sound on Windows 10, but device is said to be working well

    Thanks for your reply. I received two responses and the other one seemed easier. It worked. I did, however, learn how to access Trubleshooting and windows update through the start window. I am printing your response for future use. Larry

    Hi there

    8 VM's !!!!! upgraded so far -- Good thing about VM's is that they have IDENTICAL hardware !!. Upgraded one and cloned to the rest. All activated properly.

    In the old days I used to have to use TechNet for this type of stuff but now until Ms sorts out the download mania grab as many freebies as you can !!!

    I actually LIKE W10 -- makes my old W7 system look Old and painfully slow.

    Actually I'm surprised Ms didn't use Bittorrent for delivery instead of spending humungous amounts of money on extra bandwidth and servers -- Bittorrent if used legally with secure servers and trackers is a perfectly sensible way of satisfying this type of demand --what will Ms do with all those servers after this initial frenzy is over " psst- want to buy some cheap hardware !!!!".

    Cheers

    In addition to cloning VMware images, you can also create a backup image, via Macrium for example, of the running OS in VMware and restore it to a physical machine. This worked for Windows 8.1 and I don't recall, if the license had to reactivated or not. It probably did it in the background, but after a year or so Windows 8.1 still runs just fine on my PC...

    About to try doing the same for Windows 10, just curious if it'll work....

    There's an option in the Updates page which seems to be some kind of BitTorrent.

    Microsoft should have put Clippy in Windows 10 and it would have been more successful. (Just kidding *Wink )

    Windows 10 is said to be running on 67 million PCs already

    - 2 here. Installed 10 on 2 x 8.1 with Media Center. Took am image of 8.1 with Macrium Reflect free. 10 worked fine but the text on my monitors looked like crap. Not my monitors as it looks extremely sharp on the same hardware in 7. So took an image of 10 and restored 8.1 for the time being. Got to do a Jimbo and upgrade some of my Virtual machines to 10 (other than the insider VM's). I can restore 10 in five mins once they have stuck out some graphic subsystem fixes. Once again not my monitors or graphics card it is the OS.

    I've got it on three, from W7hp64 and two W8.1 pro64. None would update automatically, and I Googled "W10 ISO download". This Microsoft site installs a small program and you then get a choice to download an ISO or start the upgrade straight away.
