  2. Upgrade from Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit to Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit

    Is this upgrade to Windows 10 Pro correct? Any tips you can give me? Thank You!!

    Starting with my W7 Ultimate 32-Bit Desktop; add Memory and Replace SSD; load W7 Ultimate 64-Bit; Upgrade to 64-bit Windows 10 Pro.

    My Desktop

    Processor: Intel i5-2500k

    Motherboard: Intel DH67BL

    Memory: Crucial 2x2Gb = 4GB Plus Crucial 2x8Gb = 16Gb Total = 20Gb

    SSD: Intel X-25 Series 320 80Gb (C: OS, Programs, Program Data, etc.)

    Replace with Samsung 850 Evo 250GB

    HDD: Western Digital 1 Tb (D: User Data)

    Windows 7 Ultimate Product Box (Copyright 2009) containing

    Product Key

    32 Bit Disk

    64 Bit Disk

    Upgrade steps:


    • Make hardware upgrades (in bold)

    • The new SSD is empty. Load the W7-64 Bit disk into the disk drive hoping it will led to a W7-64 Bit install on the SSD (C: drive).

    • The W7 Ultimate version will be a revision corresponding to when my PC was new (about 2010). Upgrade PC to the latest version of W7.

    • Use the Library function to relink user data to my D: drive data.

    • Use the invitation from Microsoft to invoke the upgrade to Windows 10 Pro.

    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.
