Windows 10 upgrade comment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Purchased new laptop from Dell, Win 8.1. Immediately attempted upgrade to Win10. Worst ever. Took total of 20+ hours over two days. First download ran 4.5 hours then hung up for 3+ hours on "preparing for install'. Contacted tech support the next day and the process was restarted. Download ran 4+ hours then sat at 'Preparing for installation' for two+ hours. Finally completed that and began install. That took another 2+ hours. Will try to complete personal settings and preferences tomorrow. My other laptop is running Win7 and I won't be upgrading for now. Microsoft will be performing security updates until 2020 and I have free tech support from my financial institution. I am considering using a non-microsoft OS. If you have other options - take them.
