  1. Windows 10 won't recognize Windows 7 backup


    Good day,

    I recently bought a new Dell PC with Windows 10 pre-installed. I have a 12 year old PC with Windows 7. On my old PC I made a backup to my WD-HDD. Unfortunately for me, Windows 10 on my new PC won't recognize my WD-HDD with the backup in backup and restore Windows 7. How do I fix this? I even tested on a laptop with Windows 8 and there the WD-HDD got recognized instantly.

    Help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Installing Windows 10 using Windows 7 key

    Nope, you need to install Windows 10 first and make sure the Windows 7 key is transferred to your Windows account after you've installed Windows 10 (not quite sure how that works). I missed the last step and I could not activate Windows 10 after a re-install... Microsoft seem to have done everything they can to make it a PITA. Also, it's technically too late to do this now anyhow, as the upgrade offer has expired. But KMSPico works quite well...

    As for getting rid of Windows, delete the Windows folder.
