    hi guys , i just want to know if anybody did the windwos 10 upgrade , and i want to know if there is any problem .

    and i have a question about the upgrade , i know there is a recovery partition on the msi , but its for the windows 8.1 , so that means if i made the windows 10 upgrade , i dont have to use this recovery , so its better to delete it , right ?

    can you tell me how to delete this factory recovery ? or at least if there is any way to replace it with a new factory recovery for windows 10 .

    My GS30 migrated flawlessly, the touch pad was lacking but 24 hours later an update was pushed on it and it's back to how it was before.

    It was my own windows 8 image since I had upgraded the 128GB SSDs with a pair of 500GB Samsung evo drives.

    I would not delete it unless you have Windows install media you can use incase you need to reinstall Windows at a later time.

    Yes in my case my old drives are effectively a recovery as I put them back in and the system is back to factory stock.

    When you make a recovery it will do so for the current state of the computer. If you did so with 8.1 then yes it will take you back.

    You can delete the partition then reallocate the space. You'll need software to do so. I've used Easeus Partition Master and it has done well for me.
