Easy razza, there is a guide on here.
The only weird tool you will need is a 7mm allen key

Ok on my iPad at the moment.

Working fine with my PC.

Is there anything wrong with this webpage?  Using my phone I can only load this part of the page!

Well I have upgraded, seems to run fine. Also the screen looks bigger for some reason? Possible border on Windows 7? Plays videos on YouTube and GoPro footage fine. Which is its main use.

What do you mean am install media, as to save it and burn to CD? Then its possible to use in future as fresh 10 install?
July 22, 2016, 08:21:50 PM
You can make install media then do the update, make sure it works ok then do a fresh install from the media you made. You need the free upgrade first so the motherboard serial number is registered with Microsoft already, before the fresh install.

I've had my moments with it James, but realistically there's no way to keep a Win7 PC up to date long term so I persevered with it.
July 22, 2016, 08:16:44 PM
You can force the upgrade to start immediately and also make install media on USB or DVD.

Supercheap has 20% everything tomorrow. Time to go return some stuff I bought 3 weeks ago!

I absolutely hate Windows 10. It's like they sent out a questionnaire to a bunch of computer geeks and then set about making something that really appeals to 10% of the population and frustrates the crap out of everyone else!

Think I'll do it in the morning. Thanks everyone
July 22, 2016, 07:03:41 PM
Whoops, Win 10, and that typo wasn't even on my phone, lol.
July 22, 2016, 07:02:24 PM
I find the native Win19 apps rubbish. They take forever to start up. The Win 7 ones start up fast. Better off replacing the apps with other things like VLC etc.
July 22, 2016, 06:11:34 PM
You get an app called Films & Tv which pretty much does the same thing. But yeah VLC will do the trick. Just go for it I say.
July 22, 2016, 06:07:11 PM
After updating 7 does it get new looks n app style windows or is it possible to keep old school looks?
July 22, 2016, 09:57:55 AM
You can ignore the app store and install programs like windows 7.
July 22, 2016, 09:57:11 AM
If you update from 7 and choose to keep programs you still keep Media Player and can choose it as default, but that doesn't matter, just install VLC or similar anyway.
July 22, 2016, 09:32:42 AM
I read that there is no media player on windows 10? What program do you utilise for this and is it free? Im so used to double clicking an mp4 file and it plays automatically through media player.

Just a quick note to welcome crispymk2 to the Mod Squad!  Thumbsup

For those that can remember, our previous Mod from the west was Kashmir Mafia, but since he moved on from the XR5 scene some time ago it seemed an official presence was lacking for the WA member base.

crsipymk2 has been a valuable contributor to the forum for quite some time. His primary role will be to keep an eye on the WA section of the forum and update databases etc. He is also keen to organise more gatherings for local members. Good news for all.

Thanks for jumping on board Crispy!  Smiley

Hey All,

Just a quick one to let you know the downtime we've been copping lately should come to an end as of now as we've moved host.  Cool

The almighty Sir Pezzalot has moved us to a new, beefy host. For those tech inclined we're now residing in Amazon's AWS Cloud - so here we are, all modern and gone full whack cloud computing. We'll be monitoring performance over the next days, weeks and months to see how things go.  Thumbsup

Actual software / feature updates are in planning and we'll let you guys and girls know when we're going to pull the trigger on that. Worth noting that we're considering a bit of a feature clean up and re-build on a new platform that will most likely be an inclusive process from your end. We want to strip things back, do the upgrade and target great performance and usability with the community features we all really want so your feedback as we bounce through this process will be useful and sought after.

Cheers,
Miyagi
