Samantha and Endora are now both Win 10, Samantha needs 1909. Like mother, like daughter (except a mortal owns both
Wylla (HP Pavilion m7690y) tried to convert twice and halted at the logo with no rotating balls. It froze there and I shut it off to let it revert. Wylla is 32-bit.
Oddly enough, Phoebe (Dell Vostro 410) is ALSO 32-bit but upgraded without a hitch, and IT'S A BIT OLDER...
Alison (HP Pavilion P7-1111) would freeze clicking on the setup file from the USB thumb drive I loaded both 32 and 64 bit Win 10 on...
so I went to bed at 5:30 - 6 AM and came back 1/2 hour ago, tried something different.
I ran setup as administrator. BAM! It's now installed and updating on Alison. I will try that on Wylla.
The good news is that I think all five W10 machines are already up to 1909 and just need a couple updates.
Shooting for number 6 now!
One other nice if small thing...Instead of having to wait a minute for the desktop slideshow to change images things switch the same as they did in Win 7...I have a BAZILLION images, so it's really fun to watch.
Hmmm...Is the Malicious Software Removal Tool working or not? It shows up in the queue but I never see if it ran. It was completely failing in Win 7 due to a bad piece of code.
I'm trying to run the Update Tool as an administrator on the remaining Pavilion Wylla so we'll see what happens.
I took Wylla to the computer shop and they got it converted to 10 successfully, cost me $75 but for a 400 GB hard drive with a tonne of free space it was worth it. I'm going to pick it up Friday.
The Hauppage WinTV 150 tuner card that came with the original XP Media Center PC installation was the reason that the video was orange and green so after removing that driver it was correct and I removed the card altogether before sending it off.
It may be smaller LOOKING but it weighs a LOT and I had to avoid knocking over a monitor and four of the 5.1 speakers for my Sansui by lifting it over...my back didn't adore that.
Homer's Odyssey is over now, at least where upgrading was concerned.
