I get some Republic of Gamers loading logo before getting into the os, like the old windows logo but Republic of Gamers

Then init log error from an Asus Setup file x 3. Will have to do a complete fresh install. Buggy as heck. Testing BFH and get all sorts of graphical anomilies during load but holy crap once it gets in game the picture is way better than win7 and smooth as fek without g-sync enabled.
Preliminarily it looks like g-sync is now obsolete, lol. IN win7 it was necessary to get buttery frames.

Only prob now is getting random dx error events. Driver crash.

Hopefully a fresh install cures all.

Just make sure you have your product key from old win7 install upgrade to wx and that it was activated in WX.

Another tid-bit. Navigating to facebook using CHROME results in a I'm sorry theres an issued with your account webpage. Using IE is no problem. Very weird.

If you're going to do a clean install like this, you'll need your newly created upgrade activated product key.

Create a txt document on your desktop named productkey.txt
Copy and paste the following script into the txt document and save. Now rename the file extension to .vbs. Double click and it should open a window populated with your key. Use this key during the clean install.

Code:
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
MsgBox ConvertToKey(WshShell.RegRead("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\DigitalProductId"))

Function ConvertToKey(Key)
Const KeyOffset = 52
i = 28
Chars = "BCDFGHJKMPQRTVWXY2346789"
Do
Cur = 0
x = 14
Do
Cur = Cur * 256
Cur = Key(x + KeyOffset) + Cur
Key(x + KeyOffset) = (Cur \ 24) And 255
Cur = Cur Mod 24
x = x -1
Loop While x >= 0
i = i -1
KeyOutput = Mid(Chars, Cur + 1, 1) & KeyOutput
If (((29 - i) Mod 6) = 0) And (i <> -1) Then
i = i -1
KeyOutput = "-" & KeyOutput
End If
Loop While i >= 0
ConvertToKey = KeyOutput
End Function
Looks like key not needed if you clean install to same machine as the upgrade. Skipping thru all the product key activation prompts and continuing to configure os options till you reach the desktop results in an auto activation without input of key.

Tested and True. But buggy as hell os.

Um wow, had a display driver malfunction and now i boot into a black screen. Doesnt appear to be handling surround very well.

K, got the os back. Btw, gaming on the upgrade install was amazingly smooth but riddled with random dx crashes.

Sounds like the workaround for the allowing of Windows 10 Scores will be the use of High Precision Event Timers vs RTC in the benchmark. 3Dmark scores will need to be validated online where they check to see which timer was used in the benchmark. XTU automatically uses it. Bot will prolly find a way to incorporate into all remaining legacy benchmarks. HPET is a feature of both intel and amd processors.

Prevent auto driver download method?
Right click This PC > Advanced system settings > Hardware > Driver Installation Settings > Tick "No, let me choose what to do"

Will have to see when next Nvidia update rolls thru.

Found another issue.

Transfer rate between W7 Desktop to NAS was 100 MB/s.

Transfer rate between W10 Destktop to NAS is now 4 MB/s.

No changes were made to network, only difference is the "upgrade" from W7 to W10.

Annoying to say the least.

Looking for a fix.

Gonna try to reboot the whole network before I start feking with settings.

Slow network throughput on windows 10

A router reboot fixed the transfer rate issue.

Now back to your regularly scheduled program

I have 4 pc's installed with the same Win 7 OS. Do you think upgrading 1 of them will mess up the others? I used the phone activation process to get a valid install code.

Same product keys on each pc?


My guess would be no, i don't think it'd mess it up on the others but lemme try booting back into my other partition which is my original win 7 install with same key. I'll try running windows update on the 7 to see if microsoft gives me the ban hammer. Report back shortly.

Ok, ran windows update on Win 7 partition, updated new windows defender and silverlight successfully.

No errors or banhammers issued. Posting from Win 7 Ultim N 64 with no issues.
