I'll be trying to download it as soon as I get home. I would imagine their servers are getting a workout today. :0042v1:

Chrome is good to use as default ..

I have been using it since about May when they decided to stop me using the Google Search addon in IE11 ..

So Chrome is my #1 browser now and I have not had any problems or desire to switch back..

Go for it  :t2962:

Yeah, I'm probably going to bite the bullet and load her up. I just hope it doesn't shoot down any of the programs for installing firmware updates AKA OpenPilot...

Leary of rolling the dice for that reason only.

As a safety net type of thing, if you do an 'update' and not a clean install, it keeps a full backup of your old OS and you can revert back to it if needed.

I do not know of anyone that has wanted to go back though, so thats a good sign  :b0206:

If you have 7 now, download and run Belarc Advisor and it will give you the install keys for all your current software:  http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

I HIGHLY SUGGEST doing that before you go wiping it out to load a new OS

how about a little more on this ..... if I have a factory partition it will give me the key , or is that for only a purchased disk
..... I have both .....

so confused

if you have the disk for your operating system them you could install belarc advisor and it will give you the key code for the windows 7 os that you are currently using   so if you didn't like os 10 then you could reload 7os  and not run into a big hassle when you goo to reload 7

If your PC was purchased from a Retailer, it should have a Windows Genuine sticker on it some place with the Windows Key on it ..
Otherwise, yes you can get your Install Keys using 3rd party programs like 'Key Finder' or 'Product Keys' .. Just google them ;)

Like I said above though, if you do an "Upgrade" it saves a complete backup of your Win7 / 8 config.
So if you don't like Win10, you can rollback to your old OS without any problems.

7.5hrs  :b0708:

That's crazy, is that due to having a slow internet connection ?

I didn't wait for the auto update thing to happen, I got my installer from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

You can get the complete setup and put it on a USB or DVD and do a complete setup anytime your ready, on as many machines as you want.

Only catch is if you are not doing an 'update' install, you need a valid previous OS CD Key for each machine.
