    You can download Win 10 ISO directly, just get one equal to your version,ex: Pro to Pro.

    Then use The Windows media creator X32 or X64 depending on your computer and download the version you have. You can make install DVD or USB your choice.

    There is a ALL version ISO, but cant find link.

    Turn off your PC, disconnect all cables, cut Wi-Fi radio signals, get rid of mobile phones (SIM cards separately) and slowly crawl to the nearest cemetery.

    Well I just did my 53 again with W10 . It installed better this time around but I still don't like it. The time it will take for me to get it the way I like it is just not worth it when W7 works great. So tomorrow it's back to W7.

    Hi all

    Just an update, took the plunge and did my two CF 30s from win 7 pro to Win 10.

    It went a little slow, but mostly 85% error free. I did upgrade no clean install. It transferred and kept about 90% of my stuff.

    The CF 30 C model went good at about 90% of stuff transferred, lost some programs but not my important ones, and about 95% of the drivers went over to the new OS.

    The CF 30 F model was ok at about 98% of stuff transferred, lost some programs but not my important ones, the drivers here where bad at about 70% only made it. Had to reinstall about 6 drivers.

    Had better luck using Win 7 drivers.

    My CF 30 F model is a dual screen digitizer/touchscreen which I use. But even in bios Win 10 will only see it as tablet on auto setting, only one I could get to work.

    Some small divers just wont work or show up(hidden??) but not enough to make difference. All hotkeys work just fine, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and gps too.
    on the CF 30 C model , the sierra wireless card doesn't work.

    Ok now the weird stuff, some icons on desktop wont work even in admin mode, but if you go thru start menu and run icon tile as admin will run fine???
    especially adobe reader 11X.

    The start menu is ok but too many tile and everything is in weird places, you can pin to start menu. trying to find something is a pain. Just to awkward but its the future.

    Overall seems faster and cleaner, just not as simple as Win 7. which is still good till 2020.

    I made the HUGE mistake of cleaning the drive thru the app and didn't realize that it deleted old install!!!! :( Luckily it did activated overnight so it is good to go. I will have to source some more Win 7 OS and keep them as I might want to revert back, lets see what time shows.

    Honestly its ok , I still think Win 7 is far better, but if you have Vista or Win 8 it is like night and day.

    If you have Win 7 think about it, if you have Win 8 upgrade asap.

    On desktop still have Win 7 Pro, might wait till next summer for upgrade while free.


    On side note gaming is ok in Origin and Steam.

    so yer sayin' that a *free* upgrade to 10 is available with vista ?
    i might give it a try on my '30 if i can activate it with the coa/key on the bottom .
    i just have too much good stuff on the present drive to risk it going *yee-haw !* .

    Hi all another update!!! :)


    ****** Vista upgrade typo.....................sorry***********

    Well I tried last 2 days to get my CF 18 N models up with Win 10 , or I was going to sell them and get 2 CF 19s.

    Helps if you have win 10 upgrade icon in taskbar.

    I tried every registry hack I could find, and finally got a couple to work, so Win 10 on a CF 18 is possible!!! :)

    Number one went thru with out a hitch after the seventh try, then it went flawlessly, but 2 hours plus.
    Number one had every driver work and all functions touchscreen rotate, hotkeys all work

    Number two went thru with out a hitch after the third try, then it went flawlessly, but 2 hours plus.
    Number two had most drivers work and most functions touchscreen rotate, hotkeys work.
    Had to reinstall common, misc. and new drivers.

    Some of the programs had to be reinstalled most @ 80% worked.

    One caveat, the display was set to 1200x900, when it is only 1200x798, in the setting it was at 125% and had to set to custom a 100% and restart to get screen right.


    Now come testing and daily use, seems ok now except for privacy, plus you only have 30 from day of install to go back to prior OS.

    I will update later..............................thanks.
