In upgrading one of our workstations to Windows 10 Pro, the upgrade failed and did not properly revert and restore Windows 7. Because of some of the programs installed, I am looking for a suggest as to restore the operating system without loosing the existing programs and data.

I am able to boot up from the Windows 7 repair disk.

Windows 7 to 10 problems.

I tried using media creation tool and it went pretty far along but got hung at 48% for a long time on one of the screens and I stopped it believing it stuck. It reversed the entire conversion to that poiint.

I then created a dvd with the tool and booted from it. It displayed a typical 4 frame window and nothing else on the screen for over 4 hours although the activity light on the side of the computer keeps flickering.

Shoul I let the dvd based install continue longer or kill it?

How long should a direct install take and how long should I wait until I abort it.

We have a system we would like to clone. I have taken a clone of the Hard drive of the main system and put the cloned drive into the exact same model as the other one. When booting up, it gets to the "starting windows" screen and the logo starts to appear but then restarts. Startup repair is not able to fix the issue. The report I get back is as follows:

Problem Event Name: StartUpRepairOffline
Problem signature 1: 0.0.0.0
Problem signature 2:: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem signature 3: unknown
Problem signature 4: 21199833
Problem signature 5: AutoFailover
Problem signature 6: 8
Problem signature 7: BadDriver
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033


I am not able to boot into safe mode but I am able to use system recovery options. I have done a chkdsk as well

Any ideas on how to fix the bad driver to allow start up or any other ideas?

Thank you

I am installing sccm client to Windows 7 PC to get them upgraded to windows 10. I am getting error when doing so. I have tried client push and manual installation, on windows 10 it works fine but issue remains in windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit. My sccm is running version 1906 and site version 5.0.8853.1000.ccmsetup.txt.
Please see the log file for more details.

I have a computer that is bit older. It still runs great for our office. We rely on it because it has a digitizer pen. I have a problem with it connecting to the internet. It will not stay connected consistently. The problem is happening with both the Intel Wireless or the Realtek Lan. The computer is using Windows 7 64bit. However recently it was running Windows XP x86 and it did not have any problems with the internet connection using WIFI or ethernet. I have many computers in the office running Windows 10, via WIFI or ethernet, they are connecting to internet without any problem. I have tried many drivers from Fujitsu and the hardware vendors directly. They all do the same thing.
Some of things that I have tried to get it to work were ideas and solution I found online. This one on YouTube relates to changing a setting of the ethernet adapter. And the other which made it do something is from this help page at Microsoft. After I did this it seems to stay connected longer, however it still just randomly disconnects.
Here is some info about the computer and hardware devices.
Fujitsu LIFEBOOK T580 Tablet PC
Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6200 AGN
Realtek High Definition Audio
Is there anything else I could try? Thanks

I have a windows 7 pro computer (acer) that is in a startup repair loop.  It cannot fix the errors and then it shuts down.  I have download Falcon's Four boot cd and it is loaded up.  The first thing I ran is chkdsk /f

Are there some experts that have any insight into what programs I should run on this boot cd or are there other options apart from the boot cd that I could try to get out of this lopp?

When visiting pages on scholarsapp.com I occasionally see a "Fetch Error". Can someone tell me why this is happening? It seems to only happen on Windows 7 intermittently.

(I'm asking for a friend who runs the site)

Pretty much sums up the problem. With the introduction of Windows 10 I no longer have an email capability.

Hi Experts,

I was in middle working remotely to my work PC and suddenly it got unresponsive.
I realized thru logmein that the remote PC C drive is 99% full.
Is there any way I can do something remotely in order to get access to that PC.
I can see that PC from another PC on that network, and it list me all files/folders.

Thanks

Currently unable to rename files in paths which exceed the systems 256 character limit via Windows File Explorer.

I've applied the registry key "LongPathsEnabled" to bring the maximum towards 1024 characters in the file path, but no avail.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem
Key: LongPathsEnabled=1

Is there another registry key which I need or option that needs to be modified that would allow one to modify files/folders? I used to be able to do it in Windows 7 environments, there must be another setting that I cannot locate.

I am unable to modify the files via UNC paths either.

Replaced a windows 7 pc which is connected to a Monarch 9825 printer via usb cable, with a windows 10 pc.    When I connect the monarch printer with the usb, windows recognises it but doesnt have drivers for it.   The monarch (now owned by Avery Dennison  website directs me to download a nicelabel driver package.   When I execute the driver package it gets to the stage where it asks to plug in the usb printer but it just hangs and cant find the printer or install the drivers.
Has anybody configure a 9825 successfully on Windows 10?

Hi

I have a windows 7 laptop and this laptop not domain joined, and these laptops were used for exams purpose.

I had set up Local GPO on this Windows 7 laptop with restricted access and the word document had spell check disabled etc…

Now we have an IT suite with 20 Windows computers  on our domain and staff would like to have the same type of access as how they have it on the laptop.
So, if I import the Local GPO from the windows 7 Laptop and export back to the Active directory server, create a domain user and assign this policy for this user.

When this user logs in will the policy be applied same as the when logged into the windows 7 laptop.

Please suggest and let me know let me know how to go about or if there is a better way of setting this up.
Thanks

Updated Windows 7 computer with January updates and now the Domain network shows as a Public network and the Workstation service is not working.  Since the Domain network is now showing as Public, the user does not have access to his network drives.

Already tried to uninstall the Updates listed that were recently installed.

We've upgraded many Windows 7 computers to Windows 10.
Several of them have Office 2010.
Sometimes, not often, the Office 2010 becomes un-activated. When attempting to re-activate the process states that the product cannot be activated any longer.

Anyone come across this?
