Guide(ish): Windows 10 Upgrade (Y510p)

Q: Guide(ish): Windows 10 Upgrade (Y510p)

Hopefully this'll help some people thinking of upgrading . NOTE: Some people are having issues with wireless cards after upgrading. I'm not sure of solution yet, but I would recommend predownloading the Windows 10 drivers from Intel's website before the upgrade. - So far drivers have not solved issue. Not sure of solution yet. Everything went smoothly for me. All fiels, programs, drivers, and settings transferred from my Windows 7 install to Windows 10 (and also from 8.1 to 10 on my Dell, so I assum it'll work on a Lenovo too). Upgrade process was painless and took about 20 minutes. Only temporary issue was video drivers, but that got solved later. Make sure you check for updates in Windows Update right after you upgrade; there's a day one patch they put out and it fixes quite alot of bugs (1GB of them actually). This fixed any driver issues I had and made my screen resolution normal, as it was previously running 800x600 or something, so don't freak out if your screen look weird at first. It automatically changes your default programs though, so if you use Chrome or Firefox you'll need to change it back to that from the new Edge browser. Otherwise, most settings were imported. So far I have found nothing that is incompatible with Windows 10 on my computer; however, beware that you will need to reinstall your anti-virus when Windows prompts you, as it is uninstalled prior to the upgrade. Doesn't cause any issues though and your computer is not at risk throughout the process. However, I would still recommend that unless you're a developer or tech-savvy person you wait for a few weeks to upgrade, as Microsoft will constantly be fixing bugs over the rollout period. Windows 10 is free for a year and your reservation does not expire, so there's no rush. Edit: Corrected resolution. Added note.

Good post and please keep it updated if you find something more.
Which antivirus did you have?
Is your Wireless working fine? Has it improved?
Are the lenovo apps working fine? (Energy manager, Dust cleaning)

As of now, I will prefer to stay with Win 8.1 due to several mods ( i have applied) and the stability that it has for playing games.

Hi,I may be repeating the topic, but recently i had to revert back to Win 8.1, as the Track pad and later on keyboard also stopped working. Further I started to get random BSOD's always  giving new driver errors. So finally switched back to Win 8.1.Does anyone has a workaround for this so that I can upgrade to Win 10, as I think 31 July is the last date  for upgrading to Win 10 from Win 8.1, or stick with Win 8..1.Appreciate any help regarding this.

Hey, I know there are already a few topics with the same subject, however none have the exact same situation as mine as most are US based. I too have a powerful Lenovo Y510P SLI with a Intel Centrino N2230 wifi card. I am buying a new router for my student room and since I want to buy things that can last for a few years, opted for a wifi AC router (probably an Asus one). But, this laptop won't support it... I looked in the technical maintaince manual to find which wifi cards are supported for the Y510P, there is one Wifi AC card for the Y410P, but according to various posts will also work in the Y510P as they share the same BIOS whitelist. I don't want to flash the BIOS with a custom modded one which removes the whitelist. (I flashed a desktop Asus motherboard to run OSX, went great, runs well, but I can't experiment with this laptop, need it for university.). So I Googled and Ebayed the partnumer and this one came up: Ebay Link, which says "Only for Lenovo/IBM laptops such as Y510P" should be fine right? Only thing is it is 40 USD, Dutch customs will charge 21% on top of it so that makes 48 USD, and the Dutch postal office will charge anywhere between 15-20 USD for paperwork for importing goods. So that makes an total of 68 USD... so that almost doubles the cost of the upgrade...  I used the FRU number for this card: WLAN, WiFi AC+BT4.0, Ltn BCM4352+20702 2x2AC+BT4.0 HMC which is 20200381, and put in the search engine in the "part number" ...

Hello, for professional purposes I plan to upgrade the existing 8gbof available RAM on my laptop to 12gb or 16gb, depending on price range.

I purchased my Y510P back in Q2 2014, it was already on Win 8 when I purchased it. Everything was working fine even after the  SLI issue with  Win 8.1 which was fixed through a BIOS update that was available here in their product support page. During that time I worked more on other things and didnt really notice anything about the GPU and its update. I was able to update my laptop to Win 10 (back in Q4 2015) and I'm currently unsure if it already installed the anniversary update. Recently, I tried some few games and noticed that the second GPU seems not be working during any games I've launched. I ran Unigine Heaven Benchmark and seems that the SLI is detected, checked the device manager both hardwares are detected, and updated to the latest GPU driver. But still seems to be not working. Any help will be highly appreciated. Thanks.

Hello, I'm new to Lenovo and I'm about to buy one of the Y510P (59373392) with single graphics and the 1TB version.The last question I've got is whether it is possible to install an additional SSD via the DVD slot-in. I don't need the DVD drive, so it would be wonderful to install a 128GB or 256GB SSD. I've read some topics and saw that the motherboard doesn't have a mSATA connection but it must have a NGFF connection if I'm right. Since I'm not very experienced with laptops, here are a few more questions 1) If it is possible to install an additional SSD, what products are available?2) Where do I get the UltraBay adapter?3) Would it then be possible to make the SSD the bootable drive? Thanks in advance!

hi thewavelength,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
You can use a caddy for this.
http://hddcaddy.com/en/lenovo-ibm-hdd-caddy/432-lenovo-ideapad-y510p-hdd-caddy.html
 
But the SSD you can use here is a 2.5 SSD not the msata one.
  this kind :
       http://www.crucial.com/store/ssd.aspx
 
ODD can be set as primary boot and should be able to boot windows from it.
    BIOS has to be set to legacy.
 
Hope this helps,

They're RAM sticks, not cards, and they're fairly easy to change out. I would suggest looking for something in the 1866mhz speed, though I think you need lower voltage memory. So I'd get something 1.35v or lower.

Hello, I only found out after purchasing the Y510P laptop that it for some strange reason does not support 5Ghz networks, only 2.4Ghz. This results in me having insanely slow connection every single night around peak hours (7-11pm), and I'm unable to do anything like watching movies, playing games or download stuff. Does anyone know exactly how to upgrade the wireless card on this laptop so it supports 5Ghz networks? Do I have to go out and buy another wireless card, or is it software upgrades like drivers only? I'm not a computer major so a walkthrough would be appreciated. Thanks.

A simple guide to a successful in-place upgrade

You have most likely heard that a clean (custom) install is the preferred install method when migrating to Windows 7. That is most certainly true. However, there are situations when in-place upgrade is more practical method to use. Tens, maybe hundreds of gigs software installed, no install media found for the software and so on.

You might have heard horror stories about non-working Seven and how it’s all in-place upgrade’s fault, or how an in-place leaves so much unwanted and not used pieces and bits it seriously puts your system in danger, at least making it slow. Most of these horror stories come from two types of users, those who have never done a Vista to Seven in-place upgrade but have heard third hand information and rumours, and those who have not prepared installation as it should be prepared.

I have done a lot of in-place upgrades, both from XP to Vista and lately from Vista to Seven. I have even successfully tried a one-session XP to Seven via Vista in-place upgrade (in-place XP to Vista, installing service packs and drivers and then directly in-place further to Seven), to show some colleagues how to do a safe and working upgrade. I have never encountered any upgrade related problems; I do have had my share of installation problems and issues but I’ve always found out that after failing to do an in-place upgrade, the same issue has occurred also after a clean install. Most often the reason... Read more

I installed Windows 10 last year and had to uninstall it due to wi-fi connectivity dropping.   Searching the internet, this seemed to be a frequent problem and Lenova did not support Windows 10 for the Y510P and did not provide drivers. I really liked windows 10 and would love to go back to it.    Is anyone running it, and how did you resolve the wi-fi connectivity issue?    I see on the Lenova Website they still don't list Windows 10 for this model.    Too bad.  Makes me really dislike Lenova products when they don't support OS upgrades.

So I have a Lenovo Y510P IdeaPad, I upgraded it to Windows 10 last December and wanted to downgrade it back to Windows 8/8.1 due to some issues that many said are due to the fact that the model doesn't really support Windows 10 thus I experience the problems. However, since it has been more than a month from the upgrade, I can't just roll it back to previous OS and am wondering if there is any way I can find out what my original product key for the pre-activated Windows 8 so I can perform a clean reinstall with it.

If windows came pre-installed on your laptop, the key might be on its certificate of authenticity. Alternatively, you can obtain the key using third party softwares like ProduKey. It'll display the currently activated key on your system.

BSOD-xperts:
I've suddenly been afflicted with BSOD's on my Lenovo Y510P running Win 8.1. Everything was fine until about 2 weeks ago and then I started experiencing multiple BSOD's to the point that I had to boot in SafeMode. After doing some research, it looked like the issues were related to video (NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M) and wireless/bluetooth drivers. I upgraded all of those and everything was fine for a week until this morning when I got another BSOD. After looking for the bug check that it reported, I stumbled on this forum and saw some excellent responses so I thought I'd give it a whirl. I downloaded BlueScreenView and ran that and I've attached the output. I have also attached output from the MiniToolBox tool. I also tried to upload the mini-dump files but I get a message saying I'm "not permitted to upload this kind of file" but I'm happy to do so if I'm allowed to.  Here is a link the output from the Speecy tool as well - http://speccy.piriform.com/results/j7BzfFXyiX3xHgrhWQqHjXV.

How to Create Your Own XP System Restore Disk Guide + dual boot guide.

This guide is for XP users with home built systems. It may also work for others, but I have not tested it on any brand name systems.

Everybody knows that there is nothing sweeter then a fresh installation of XP. Your computer starts and runs faster. It almost never freezes up and crashes. Everybody also knows that as time goes by; your computer starts to slow to a crawl. You run the gambit of system utilities (defrag, registry cleaner, garbage cleaner etc), but your system never runs like it did when you first installed XP, and deep down you know that it never will until you do a complete reformat and reinstall of XP. So what is holding you back? Well, you also know that it will take a lot of time to reformat, reinstall windows, reinstall all of your favorite programs, and download the truck load of updates that have occurred since you first bought your system and your programs. And let?s not forget about your system drivers. Now if you bought a brand name system, it most likely came with a set of restore disk or a restore partition on your hard drive. Or it may have a program that asked you to create the restore disk when you first started it up. In any case, you may already have your restore capabilities if you have a brand name system. But even then doing a system restore would only take you back to the original OEM created system. I personally hate brand name computers because of... Read more

How to Create Your Own XP System Restore Disk Guide + dual boot guide. Part 2

One additional note I want to add before finishing this guide, is that if you plan to use this to dual boot, there are some additional steps you have to take to get it to dual boot. Since, when you do the restore as a dual boot option, you are not running the installation process, windows will not modify the boot.ini file to add the new XP installation as a boot option at start up. With out this, you will not be able to boot from the new XP system. In order to modify the boot.ini file you will need to go through several steps. I will give you two ways to do this below. The first one is the best and safest way to do it, the other is faster but there is some risk involved.

Option 1: This option uses the Windows Recovery Console. The simplest way to start the recovery console is to pop your XP CD into your CD drive and restart your computer. In most case you system should come with a black screen after the post process and say ?PPRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD ?.. You really need to pay close attention during the restart process to catch this screen as it only stays up for a few seconds. Of course you need to press a key, any key on your key board while this screen is up. If you don?t see this screen you need to do one of several things. Depending on your motherboard brand it may be a simple as press one of you F keys during the post process to bring up the boot menu screen, where... Read more

Hello! Well, i own a Y510p. 1080p, single GPU and 8gb ram version, if it helps. Time ago I decided to install Ubuntu on a second partition, because of reasons. Using an Ubuntu .ISO the instalation worked flawlesly, but after a while the computer catched a nasty error. Whenever using Windows (both in 8.1 and 10), the computer would randomly get a BSOD. Sometimes it didn't happened in a week, sometimes it happened twice a day. It was pretty random, i was unable to figure out any pattern. Even the problem would change, from some kernel error to some critical process thing. Sadly, I don't remember the exact error. But everytime, the computer would try to boot via IPv4 and get stuck in there. One reset and working again. As you can see, it sucked, but I could live with it. I eventually had an unrelated problem with the pc and decided to format the whole thing. I kept Ubuntu and just installed Windows 8 again, the unrelated problem was solved but the BSOD thing was still there. And one more time, I had another unrelated problem that lead me to format the computer. Again. Because I wasn't using Ubuntu that much anymore, I decided to combine the partitions again for Windows. And voila, BSOD error is gone! Well, now I want to install Ubuntu again.

I'm wondering if the graphics adapter used on the computer is not compatible with the generic VGA drive Windows 8.1 uses for safe mode. Has the driver for the graphics adapter ever been updated? I noticed this on the specs. If you have the model with the two adapters, it's possible they conflict with the safe mode video driver.

Little warning first to users who still hold any type of warranty for their Inspirons. Upgrading HDD (Hard Drive), RAM (memory) and installing Video Card would not void your warranty, PSU (Power Supply Unit) could be questionable. Dell generally do not recommend changing CPU (processors) [as soon as you think about changing motherboard, your PC is no longer Dell, unless if it Dell motherboard from another model, but then it is Frankenstein, in this case you can look for help at Tom's harware forum, but not here], however I would present the list of Dell tested processors, and there would be another 2 processors not tested by Dell. Also, you can change the case to make your Inspiron look nicer, or to improve cooling, I would say - it would void warranty as well. Lastly, at the end, I would talk about overclocking, this would not just void any warranties, it would place you at my mercy, since I am the only one left here who done this and still willing to help others, just remember, as soon as you decide to go this path, you might endanger you PC - it could even catch fire and burn your place, so basically you are doing it on your own risk.

Hello guys. I've just done a clean install of Windows 7 on a new hard drive. Last one died, sadly. Everything is messy as usual. I created this thread because I remember that there was a very helpful PDF guide that walked me through every basic Windows 7 setting and registry option (how to disable Aero, how to set these task bar icons, which automatically run windows programs are safe to disable and so on...). It even had some tips for BIOS.

I think the name of this guide started with TGC, TG or TCG. I don't seem to have it on my backups. Could someone help me find it. Google gives nothing

See this site:

http://www.windowsreinstall.com/

The site refers to a reinstall as a "Repair" (but see No. 3 below):

I would point out two things about a reinstallation:

1. Contrary to many concerns, a Reinstall DOES NOT change your computer except for replacing files with the original Windows installation files--your desktop and menus and Documents and Settings all stay the same. This may or may not have an effect on some installed programs--I have reinstalled many many times and it seems with XP, I've never had any problem

2. Reinstall is often an easy way to fix a nagging problem that there seems to be no solution to--you can do it easily in about a half hour with a minimum of effort as long as you have your original CD and product code AND you have bootable CD drive which most are--you can test it easily by changing the boot order to the CD and inserting your Windows CD to see if it starts booting. You can then just CTRL-ALT-DEL while its loading setup files and change the boot order back--Windows doesn't change anything until you go through few commands to tell it too. That's not to say that you should use this right away--a reinstall is the option to use when you've exhausted efforts to fix the specific problem.

3. DO NOT use the "Repair windows Through the Recovery Console" option--follow the instructions for your OS in the above link.

4. Here are quick Links to XP Reinstall Guides for all Service Packs:

Can Windows Firewall default settings protect me against inbound attacks or somewhat from foreign users ? Or should I enter all about the configuration settings like outbound and inbound rules? I don't know much thing about which service Windows and other 3rd party programs use in my computer, so If I try to add something like extra rules may it cause some problems.

I had windows 8 single language(English) pre installed in my dell laptop. Recently I upgraded to windows 8.1 and also have probably installed the update 1(I don't see any update notification in windows updates). As I have a slow internet connection I wanted to make things a tad easier in the future, in case I have to refresh my laptop. After windows had downloaded the update and applied the changes I did the following -
1. Windows prompted me to restart and I clicked restart later.
2. I immediately browsed to C:/ and copied the $Windows.~BT folder(hidden) to one of my drives.
Now, how do I make a windows 8 to windows 8.1 upgradable DVD with the contents of the folder and what will the DVD be actually called? I haven't really messed with the folder contents except changing the folder attribute to "NON-HIDDEN".
P.S : I really have a pint-sized knowledge of these things so please bear with me. Thanks.

I'm a noob at techy stuff and this is the first time I've tried to upgrade my pc myself. Neways, I was following that guide till I got stuck. I've done most of the work but I just got stuck at 'Configuring the Page File' which can be found http://www.techspot.com/tweaks/memory-winxp/memory-4.shtml there.

In the first paragraph where it says



set the Paging file size for selected drive to Custom size, setting the Initial size to 1000MB and Maximum to 1500MB (Lower the Initial accordingly if Hard Drive space is an issue).Click to expand...

do I still use that setting if I have a total of 14.6 GB with 5.89GB free space on my Drive?

Scrolling down the page of that link, the 2nd picture shows that the Recommended paging file size is 1150 MB whereas mine says 382MB. I have 256 MB of RAM. What value should I lower my settings to?

And finally, when it says to



run your most resource intensive Applications in order to see just how Virtual Memory is utilisedClick to expand...

does this mean all simultaneously or one by one?

Thanks alot! sorry, i'm such a noob!
 

A:Windows XP Memory Tweak Guide Help

yes. You can set the page file to what it says if you have 14GB. your page file won't be anywhere near the amount of space you have left on the disk.

running your most system resouce programs means running many different programs at once. A page file acts like additional memory by using hard drive space. If all your programs exceed physical system ram, then the OS will write to a page file and dump programs that are not currently active to it. When you switch back, the OS read the page file back into system memory.

In the end it is always best to maximize your RAM in a system as page file usage will bog down your system. XP should never be run in a system with less than 512mb of ram or it will run extremely slow. In fact, I wouldn't run it with less than 1 gb of ram.

For what it's worth, I haven't done anything this guide suggests and wouldn't do it. I have 6 gig of memory and don't really run that many programs so memory isn't an issue for me. I wouldn't like to make these changes as I don't understand them enough to know if they would have a positive or negative effect on my computer. I would like to hear from other people on this though

A:Windows Debloating Guide - Opinions

Here is a guide on this forum for optimizing the computer without any downloads: Optimize Windows 7 - created by Brink

Aside from that, any bloatware removal is probably entirely up to the administrator of their own computer. You choose the programs you want to remove, and perhaps the best way to remove them is by this program (Revo Uninstaller Free): Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems

It is very good at removing all remnants of programs. Within Revo, choose a program, click uninstall, click "advanced" in the pop up, let the uninstaller run, choose all remnants to delete, click next, and delete any leftover files.


Aside from the optimizing guide above, I wouldn't change anything else on your computer. Somethings just may not be worth it, and others can be down right hazardous (to your computer's health).

Windows 7 delivers many new and interesting features, and in our opinion comes much closer to delivering on that wonderful ?Longhorn vision? we saw at PDC 2003.

Let?s get to it then shall we?

You can change this through the Folder Options dialog, however this will cause all folders to open within new processes.

2. Select ?Open in New Process?.

Hi, So I got Acer Aspire V3-772G-9829 in the mail yesterday from Amazon.  Replaced the included hard drive with a Crucial M550 256GB. Had to disable the boot order security stuff in BIOS to boot from DVD, and then realized I had to set BIOS in Legacy mode otherwise it kept freezing right before Windows installation would start. Anyways, installed Windows 7 but I cannot get my hands on working drivers, specifically Intel AHCI driver.  I downloaded the one from Acer Support website for Win8 64-Bit, along with the rest of the drivers.  Once I install Intel AHCI driver, which installs via Intel RST, I reboot as instructed and get BSOD as soon as desktop loads.  Even in Safe Mode, goes straight to BSOD once desktop loads.  I tried formatting again, reinstalling Win7, and installing a set of drivers that are supposedly for this laptop specifically for Windows 7 from driver-lap.blogspot.com but most of the drivers would just say "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installation."  So again, I tried using the Windows 8 drivers.  They all seem to work okay except for the Intel AHCI driver, which causes BSOD immediately after rebooting again. Any advice???  This is Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit SP1 System Builder.  Thanks in advance.

A:V3 772G Windows 7 (64-Bit SP1) Drivers/Guide

Okay never mind.  I pulled the proper AHCI driver from an Amazon user's Dropbox account and sorted out all the driver issues.  I am currently doing all my Windows Updates in Win7 and everything is going smoothly so far but keeping my fingers crossed. If this works for me, I may put up a guide with instructions because this was really tricky and I had to jump through quite a few hoops over the course of yesterday and today to get Windows 7 running on my V3 772G 9829.

I recently sought advice from this Forum how to transfer a HDD containing two drives (Windows & programs on C: and user files on D: ) to a new SSD.

I enclose my 'Idiots Guide' to to help anyone unfamiliar with how to make a disk image and transfer it to a new SSD, including all the steps needed to avoid any problems.

A:'Idiots Guide' to Transferring Windows from a HDD to a SSD

I like it, especially since you use Macrium to create a backup image then restore it to the SSD. That give you a good backup in case something goes wrong during the copying or after running for a while off the SSD.

The time has come... It is time for me to say good bye to my Windows 7 (Dear Windows 7, I will miss you ).
 
On my PC, I have Windows 7 (dual-booting with Ubuntu 15.10) installed. The current Windows has started giving me a lot of trouble recently (example: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/595226/windows-explorer-has-stopped-working/). I was wondering what to do when suddenly this idea came to me. I looked at a Windows 7/ 8/ 8.1/ 10 comparison chart and found that 8.1 would be best for me.
 
I searched for a lot of guides on clean-installing Windows 8.1, but nothing was good enough for me.
 
I have already planned what I want to do, but I just need a guide to ensure that it goes smoothly.
 
This is what I want to do:
 
1. Back up all my programs on my C:\ drive (for example, the programs on the 'Program Files' and 'Program Files x86' folders).
2. Format the Windows Partition (C:\ ).
3. Install Windows 8.1.
4. Do some driver updates (if they are needed).
5. Install applications.
6. Copy the backed up files.
 
So, can anyone please give me a detailed guide of how I can accomplish this, and whether this is a good idea or not? If you can, please try to improve upon these ideas.
 
Also, check the speccy link in my signature for more details about my PC.
 
Thank you.
 
EDIT: Minor edits in this post.

The Acer C720 is a great notebook but the limited capabilities of Chrome OS can be daunting at times. Here is a way to install Windows 8 for those who do not have a spare machine:
 

Make a Windows 8.1 bootable USB (Google this)
Put the Acer C720 into Dev mode and enable legacy boot. (Google this)
Install windows 8.1 from the Windows 8.1 USB you made by pressing Ctrl+L when starting the Chromebook.
Do not let ANY drivers auto-install/update as they do not work properly

Problems:
Keyboard and Trackpad do not work.
Sound does not work.
Video Accelaration does not work.
Power Management does not work.
 
To make these work we need the drivers, Acer have officially said they will not release them, the only other way is to somehow port over the Linux drivers -- and that seems impossible at this current time.
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why I did this? Because a user called: Videomarquantoè , kept writing articles on how hostile the Acer C720 is, this to prove how it is not but just needs full time developers working on it.
 
It was not intended for Windows 8 and is more capable of running it then other Chromebooks.
 
So it is far from hostile, yes it is difficult to upgrade the RAM as it is soldered but that can still be done it is just harder, what do you accept from a £200 laptop. Can you upgrade the RAM on a £250 Windows 8 Tablet?

Recently, I've been having multiple problems with my computer that started with Hard Drive crash back around September. I've got the hard drive fixed, but parts of windows was damaged. This post is about Windows Media Center only. Since I hadn't tried WMC since that time, I didn't know it was failing. It will not download the Program Guide.

If I go through the WMC set up options, they just freeze when downloading the guide. If I try to manually download the guide, I get this error:




A critical Windows Media Center process has failed. Please restart the computer and try again. If the problem persists, contact your hardware manufacturer for assistance.



Other things I've seen in my multiple attempts to get the guide data:

WMC is not listed in the Start Menu at all.
There is no uninstall listed in Programs & Features nor is there a way to turn WMC on or off in Windows Features

Since before the hard drive crash, my cursor disappears in full screen mode. When I move my mouse around, I can see options light up as if I'd moved over them. If I move to just the right place, I am able to click on an option. It is the only way I can exit full-screen mode. The cursor is there, it is just invisible.

I tried renaming the ehome directory and have it recreated, but that failed with the above error. If I go through other setups and at the prompt choose that I don't want to use the guide, WMC crashes.

A:Windows Media Center Guide not Downloading

It's been 3 weeks without a single reply so I thought I'd bump it just once to see if someone who can help may give it a second look.

Things I've tried:
Tried to turn the Windows Feature off, but Media Center is not listed in Windows Features.
Tried to locate the MediaCenter Recovery Task in Computer Management, but it doesn't exist.
I've deleted %systemdrive%\programdata\microsoft\ehome\mediacenterdatastore.db and then started Media Center. The setup runs but stalls at Download TV Setup Options.

I'm trying to follow the instructions found here (Windows Experts Community), but I'm having trouble deleting some files because Vista thinks they're in use. I also need to wait to reboot because I have other processes going on (corrupted MFT on external drive - I'm in the middle of a scan at the moment).

In the meantime, I'm hoping someone with an answer sees this.

Microsoft rolls out the official guide for the new OS

Windows 10 Preview rolled out last week with a plethora of new features, including a Start menu and multiple desktops, and Microsoft has already offered a detailed blog post and videos to demonstrate some of these improvements.

And still, as is the case with all the other products unveiled by the Redmond-based tech giant, the company also provides adopters with a user guide to detail features included in the release, thus making sure that everyone actually manages to explore all its improvements with ease.

The official Windows 10 Preview user guide is now available for download ( PDF viewer required) and comes with quite a lot of details about what's included in this testing version of the operating system, while also providing us with a quick glimpse of the Windows Insider Program that was launched last week.

Basically, experienced users, who are pretty much the only ones who should install the preview version of Windows 10, already know which feature is which in the OS, so this guide shouldn't make too much of a difference.

Few of you us aware of the Windows Touch, the multi-touch capabilities in-built into the DNA of Windows 7. The Windows 7 developers team have long been trying to develop a natural user interface for several products. The first one to be introduced was the multi-touch in Surface. Further, the Windows and Surface development teams have worked in close collaboration to develop multi-touch in Windows. Last year they provided demos of a few applications that were created to run on Windows 7.

With so much on offer, you must be interested to explore Windows Touch to be introduced in the Touch Pack for Windows 7. Here is everything that you will be interested in.



The Touch Pack for Windows 7 includes six multi-touch optimized applications and games. These are meant to exhibit the features of Windows Touch in Windows 7. There are three casual games and three surface applications. Let's take a look at the Windows Touch applications that provides you a new way to interact with your PC.

Requirements

To use Touch Pack you need to use Windows 7 PC that supports multi-touch. The Touch Pack for Windows 7 would be available to the OEMs who would get the options for pre-installing some, none or all the applications in the Pack for the touch PCs that are expected to arrive around the time Windows 7 is launched.
The Touch Pack is a revolutionary product the could take Windows 7 to the next level. We will have to wait and see how stable it remains with time.

Another good guide on Win 10.



The free Windows 10 upgrade is now successfully installed on tens of millions of PCs worldwide, but it?s still hard to find exactly the information you need. This is that guide, an organized collection of the how-to and informational articles I have written?and will continue to write?about Microsoft?s greatest-ever OS release.

More soon! I will keep this guide updated as I write more Windows 10 content.

Note: this guide covers only those articles that pertain to the shipping version of Windows 10. I have included only those Windows Technical Preview articles that still have relevance now pre-release testing is complete. ?PaulClick to expand...

So what I am trying to do is have the tv in the background hooked up from pc playing a movie seperate from my pc web functions so i can check my email. Only problem is I want to keep like a hi-def resolution both on the hdtv and on my regular 20 inch pc monitor but there is 1 hook uo outlet on my pc.

Saw something mentioned on http://answers.yahoo.com/question/i...nwUiPCYjzKIX;_ylv=3?qid=20110503141242AANOR8U
 

A:Windows xp media guide for watching movies

Services like Netflix and Amazon stream video. There's nothing to download. What services or sources are you referring to? If you want to connect your computer to your TV, we need to know what outputs the computer has and what inputs the TV has.

After having read many online responses, (including Microsofts useless tech rhetoric), I am convinced that only a myracle can salvage my ability to, once again, download the Microsoft Vista Windows Media Center's Guide. I have a solid internet connection that just won't connect and collect ANY Media Center download. From what I have read online, my situation is but one of thousands where the Media Center simply quit working one day. I receive an error message titled "Code 13". I have tried everything to resolve this issue short of buying port forwarding software or formatting and reinstalling my OS. I am beginning to think that Microsoft wants to forcibly upgrade me to 7 from my current lemon of an OS... Vista. PLEASE! No copy/paste reprints of any current online fixes. None of these work. Nothing short of a myracle will.

Thanks, Don

A:Windows Media Center TV Guide won't download

Go to C:\Windows\ehome.
C:\ would be your windows drive.
Doubleclick the mcupdate.exe program.
Wait and see if the media center icon pops up in the taskbar
notification area.
If it does,try downloading the guide again.
If that works for you,you may have a corrupted or misconfigured
task in task scheduler.
You would need to check it at
Control Panel\Administrative Tools\task scheduler.
Expand Task scheduler library\microsoft\windows and click on media center.
Double click the mcupdate task to open it.
On the settings tab run on demand should be selected.
Might check the settings on the other tabs also.

I have done a bit of searching through this site for a guide on how to install Windows 7 as safely as possible and have not been able to find one. Regarding minimizing the chances of a reinfection from either a backup or from neglecting to include something during initial setup or from transferring files/folders etc... when upgrading a HDD or buying a new system. I would like to put one together for myself and other users of this site. Starting from the initial formatting of the HDD and install with updates. Then onto a softwares priority list, i.e., AV or antispyware, yada yada yada...

Thanks

P.s., I am going to add a reply fort the list that I can edit as either new ore added info arises.

Hello,
I wanted to use the Windows 7 OEM clean installation guide.
I have an Acer Aspire and I saw that there are many programs that belong to Acer, and the clean OEM installation guide is going to do a clean installation without all these Acer programs. I wanted to know if it's going to be bad not to have all these specific programs for this laptop?
Thanks!
