You can. Just skip the steps talking about inserting the media and replace with start windows update.MS leads me to believe I can perform the upgrade simply through the Windows Update process. Will it not work this way?
to me that does not sound like a windows issues. That sound more like an issue with the manufacturer that you bought the mic from not having the proper drivers to get it to work with windows.I like windows 10 but my mic on my webcam no longer works it worked on windows 7/8.1 I hope they fix this soon
There is something to be said for a clean interface... I think that the UI in Windows 10 is (overall) less distracting.Windows 10 is like Windows ME meets Windows 8.1. I am not sure what worse being unstable and buggy or UI itself. This is the worst Windows release ever. It looks like Windows Division is driven by people who did Windows ME and Windows 8 and actual Windows XP/7 team was fired. And then they appointed a joker of CEO who talks non sense.
The guy that did windows 8 was fired because windows 8 was supposed to be windows 10 is. Been running it the last few months and haven't experienced anything negative. The minor changes to where things are located took less than a week to familiarize myself with. Its fine for daily tasks, just wait awhile before upgrading if you use it as a workstation to ensure compat.Windows 10 is like Windows ME meets Windows 8.1.

Good to know, thank you.canadianvice :Does anyone know if on the 29th there will be some method for clean installation? I've been waiting a month to throw this SSD in, but I don't want to do multiple installs just to get to Win10 (Win8pro for the pro upgrade, then win10). Hopefully I can just download media, and enter my Win8 pro key :\
unfortunately you have to use upgrade option first, then make a rescue/install disk or usb drive after that and then perform a clean installation.
he may actually be right though, most tos contracts are extremely open and vague to try to cover themselves completely.buxxcador :Before downgrading to Windows 10 read carefully the Microsoft Privacy Statement (google it), which is the new contract fro any Windows Service, including Windows 10.
It gives Microsoft the right to spy on you, including any personal data, the content of any file and document, your finances, any password you use, GPS location, fingerprints, keys of your encrypted drives, etc, and includes children.
It surveys you 24 hours trough a microphone, camera or any sensor.
It gives Microsoft any right to use it for profit, and share it with anybody.
It gives Microsoft the right to change any clause, so Microsoft gets unlimited contractual rights over you, your property and anything.
10/10, love the paranoia.
I keep my computer locked in a faraday cage behind 6 alloy doors, so I can be safe and private while I have my facebook. Plus, while it may happen in the states, private use of data of that kind is strictly forbidden by Canadian statutes.
