Preferred Solution: first time upgrade to windows 10 mobile anniversary upgrade can received?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My desktop pc is running Win 10 Vers. 1511.  I've tried repeatedly to install the Anniversary Upgrade Vers. 1607 - always without success, with the error code 0x80070005.  A Microsoft technician queried whether the pc is able to install the Anniversary Upgrade.  I never thought of this as a problem and I hope someone can help me to find the answer.

I m afraid I took advantage of the free Windows upgrade last year biggest mistake I ve ever made but I ve learned to live with it But today there were multiple problems and now I am effectively frozen out of my laptop a Vostro I know that it s not one of the pcs tested by Dell for the operating system and I m sort of OK with that But a rather rude and spectacularly unhelpful Microsoft technician told me very forcibly that my laptop is incompatible with Windows and that therefore there is nothing they can do Windows Anniversary 10 after upgrade compatibility to help me and nor will they now try as it is pointless as Windows 10 compatibility after Anniversary upgrade I can t even use the laptop with the new upgrade of Surely that can t be correct I have grown to pretty much hate Microsoft in the last months but can they really have decided that my laptop is obsolete And not told us Anything anybody can tell me here will be greatly appreciated And I ll try to gain access to my laptop again

Clean install. There may be some bad/ extraneous baggage you don't want following you from Vista.

You can only back up personal profile folder files -
- Music
- Docs
- Pics
- Favorites
- etc...

You'll need to reinstall apps.

Our computer automatically installed the Windows 10 anniversary update. After the update all of our documents, pictures, etc. were missing. The quick links no longer worked.

I have held off going from Win 7 to Win 10 for a number of reasons, including several hardware upgrades over the last 6 months. (I actually have one more hardware upgrade I would like to do, going to a M.2 drive once a 500 GB drive comes out, which may or may not happen soon.) Not in a hurry as Win 7 is working fine.

So, browsing this forum occasionally, I see the Windows 10 Anniversary Update is coming out soon-ish, no firm date. Plus, the end of the "free" upgrade period is also coming up.

Is there any advantage to waiting and seeing if the Windows 10 Anniversary Update comes out first, and performing the upgrade on that version as opposed to doing an upgrade now, and then updating with the anniversary edition? It is possible that the free upgrade period could be extended a bit as well (not starting a rumor, just thinking) that could allow this to happen.

A:Upgrade from Win 7 and Windows 10 Anniversary Update edition

Perhaps, upgrade now and get to know how Windows 10 works, so that by the time " anniversary update" comes along, you will enjoy it more.

Free upgrade period appears to be unchanged, at least for now. Nothing is definite. Never say never.

If I have a machine running a legal Windows 10 with a volume license (my work) how does it get upgraded to the anniversary update? The media creation tool doesn't work and the upgrade advisor says that this edition of Windows 10 cannot be upgraded.
What has to be done to upgrade a volume license to the latest anniversary update?
Many thanks.

Hi ,
after windows 10 anniversary upgrade installation i ran Disk Management and found a new created Recovery Partition as shown in picture . 845 MB , Healthy (Recovery partition). Is it necessary or can I delete it ?
The Upgrade installation has been absolutely successful , no problem at all.

A:windows 10 Anniversary upgrade created a recovery partition

You can check which recovery partition is registered with the command reagentc /info from elevated command prompt. You'll see something like this:
Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.14393]
(c) 2016 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Windows\system32>reagentc /info
Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) and system reset configuration

Windows RE status: Enabled
Windows RE location: \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk0\partition1\Recovery\WindowsRE
Boot Configuration Data (BCD) identifier: 3d8f8337-bc56-11e5-a7c5-85493d747884
Recovery image location:
Recovery image index: 0
Custom image location:
Custom image index: 0

REAGENTC.EXE: Operation Successful.


To find which partition the number above you need to check diskpart as disk management doesn't show all partitions (the MSR partition specifically which is partition 3 normally). Again from elevated command prompt:

Microsoft DiskPart version 10.0.14393.0

Copyright (C) 1999-2013 Microsoft Corporation.
On computer: WIN10

DISKPART> select disk 0

Disk 0 is now the selected disk.

DISKPART> list par

Partition ### Type Size Offset
------------- ---------------- ------- -------
Partition 1 Recovery 500 MB 20 KB
Partition 2 System 200 MB 500 MB
Partition 3 Reserved 16 MB 701 MB
Partition 4 Primary 32 GB 717 MB
Partition 5 Primary 55 GB 33 GB
Partition 6 Unknown 23 GB 88 GB
Partition 7 Unknown 619 MB 112 GB

Perhaps it made a new one as 401MB is not big enough - normally it is 500MB AFAIK.

Since upgrading Windows 10 Pro to with the Anniversary update my screen sort of changes tint from light to a sort of yellow tint...  The image stays clear and does not flicker...  I think I have seen this before due to Windows/Intel trying to adjust the brightness of the display to save power - although this might not be the cause of my problem...  Things were perfect before the anniversary update, anyone else seen this?  Thanks, Peter

This is just a FYI for fellow Windows Media Center users on Windows 10. If you use cablecards, DO NOT UPGRADE to the anniversary upgrade. It will break the connection.
Windows Media Center no longer will see the cablecard any more after the upgrade. This has been confirmed by Ceton and HDR users. After installing your cablecard software, WMC will just show "No tuner found" There has been a lot of reports of it.
There is a bunch of people looking into it.
If you do not use WIndows Media Center or hate it, or just want to bash it, PLEASE do not reply to this thread. There are no need for useless posts like that.

Ever since I upgraded to the W10 "anniversary edition" Hello hasn't recognized me a single time anymore! Hello seems completely broken since the update, even though I went through at least 10 "improve recognition" procedures by now.

Before the update Hello worked so-la-la, i.e. it recognized me in maybe 50-60% but since the upgrade that rate has fallen to a flat 0%!

Anybody seeing similar behavior? Anything one can do as a user to improve that feature? This is on an MS Surface Pro 4.

Thought it might be interesting to note what seems to have been fixed that we've noted as longstanding quirks or bugs. These are things I've noted so far.

1. Items listed in explorer search which were deleted from the search results list formerly remained displayed unless on hit F5 to refresh the window.

Now they disappear after about 3s.

2. The Flight Mode/ Airplane Mode button in the Action Centre was at odds with the actual state of the mode unless toggled a couple of times.

Now it works as it should.

3. Desktop icon positions were often lost and icons rearranged on the left side.

Now the positions are retained.

Will personal customization be honored or retained within the Aug 2016 Anniversary upgrade? I haven't bothered uninstalling any little default (store) unused apps since I figured they'd likely be reinstalled with the Aug upgrade/update.

There is not a Microsoft Account on this desktop nor are there any tiles on the screen.
There is an MS Account on a laptop and I do log in there but I do not log into the desktop.
I cannot find any comments or articles stating that this type of 'customizing' will be retained.

Anything that has changed since the last release is likely to be "reset". This could be just about anything.

I have two very recent but different HP laptops with Win 10 pre-installed. After the Anniversary update, one laptop is still OK but the Spectre has lost the facility for a PIN login instead of using a password. I have seen much criticism of the effects on devices after installing the update, on the Internet, but haven't seen a cure yet that works on my Spectre. When I attempt to set a PIN and a confirmation of the PIN, the pointer arrow displays and if I don't move it, it stays there. If I move it a tiny bit the pointer disappears completely, but I am still asked for my Password on login. Any help would be appreciated. My update was done just after it came out so i don't want to rollback, even if I could. There must be some good effects from installing the update! Many thanks in anticipation.

I have a Lumia 640 and have upgraded to the Anniversary update, a lot of apps won't launch, Discovery News, Network Speed Test, Microsoft Authenticator, Litecoin easy check, etc. Even Settings! They immediately close.
I have tried to download to re-install say Network Speed test, but it is stuck at "working" and rebooted a couple times.
Would you recommend waiting for an update? Resetting the phone and starting from scratch or resetting the phone and restoring a backup?
Or is there something else that could fix this?

I use Windows Home and find the inability to disable the Lock Screen on login really annoying. I used to use the registry fix on this forum but this no longer works.

In Spotlight Mode, the correct Lock Screen background is shown when I use Windows Key + L but the last selected picture Lock Screen background is shown when I log out. In Picture Mode, the correct LockScreen background is shown when I use Windows Key + L and log out. I can't get the slide show mode to work.
In summary:

In Picture Mode, the Lock Screen background worksIn Spotlight Mode, I see the correct background using Windows Key + L but the last set picture when I log out.I can't get the Slideshow Mode to work - it just shows the last set picture whether I log out or use Windows Key + L.

I've got a friend's laptop running 8.1 here. They can't upgrade to 10 because a lot of the software they use for their work is extremely buggy and just about works on Win7 and 8.1 - She has been advised by the IT people working for her company not to upgrade to 10 until they give everyone the all clear to do so.

My question is, if I use the media creation tool on her laptop now to create an ISO, would that mean she could do the upgrade for free beyond this July?
I have read that it's necessary to do an inplace upgrade first in order to generate the necessary hardware id codes etc, but Im wondering if it's goes past the 12 month free period, if that notification will be gone or the ISO on the system will be useless?

I have ordered an SSD drive that should arrive at the same time as Windows 8 is released later this week.

I want to install the SSD drive and do a clean install of my PC OS at the same time. I intend to keep my HDD for saving photos etc..

What is the best order in which to approach this?

I was thinking I could:
- re install Windows 7 on the SSD, format the HDD and then buy the Windows 8 upgrade


- buy the upgrade before installing the SSD and create the upgrade installation DVD. Install the SSD drive, boot up from the HDD and then use the clean install facility on the Windows 8 upgrade DVD to install Windows 8 onto the SSD and reformat the HDD?

Will this work?



A:Install an SSD drive and upgrade to Windows 8 at the same time.

I'd Clean Install Win8 since you have to start fresh anyway.

In Win7 if you install Upgrade version to new HD you must leave Product Key blank during install and afterwards do Option 3 workaround in Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version. We're waiting to see if it's the same with Win8. You might find out faster in our sister forums Windows 8 Forums

Lumia 735 on Verizon. Updated to 1607 OS build a couple days ago.
Huge change in battery life...for the worse.
I check battery usage by app...and its all Cortana. For example, I fully charged the unit, unplugged it and, it sat untouched for 10 hours. Cortana ate 50%!
I don't use Cortana normally. I've turned everything off in her notebook. Is there some way to turn her off...or save my battery power?
Let me be clear...this is not cool. I don't care what bells an whistles MS wants to brag about adding (mostly spyware by another name assuredly)...I used to be able to go days without I can't go a day without the phone going into saving mode.
I am not happy about this.

I was under the impression that Lumia devices with 512MB RAM weren't going to be get getting the Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update, however today I turned on my old Lumia 635 to double-check a question I replied to on this forum earlier and it updated itself to the Windows 10 Mobile 1607 Anniversary Update. Well, can't complain at that.

I have no idea why though, before updating it would have been on whatever 10586 insider build it was on back in about March when I reset it back to defaults and threw it in a cupboard.

About 24 hours ago I upgraded our two 640XLs from Win8.1 mobile to W10 mobile.
I exercised due diligence and backed up both phones using the tools provided in settings.
After the upgrade the email (google mail and IMAP) accounts, people and SMS text messages were gone.
The email accounts & contacts stored in google were recovered by setting up the accounts again.
However, SMS text messages on both phones are gone. Is there a way to recover them?

If you had SMS backup switch on in the SMS settings under WP8.1 then they will come back over time. If that backup option was not on they won't.

I've done this about 10 times now, each time it fails. It installs the OS and it reboots itself a few times then it rolls back and boots back into Windows 7.

I did some investigation and it seems that it's getting a blue screen. So the last 2 attempts, I've checked the minidumps it saves.

First time, it was wdf01000.sys and ucx01000.sys.
Second time, it's wdf01000.sys, pacer.sys, and AgileVpn.sys.

Last driver is the highest in the stack.

I've tried removing all software that the ASUS DVD installed when I first set the machine up (It's an ASUS P8P67 Pro rev 3.1 motherboard). I have 16 gigs of ram that has been tested.

In Windows 7, I have no issues. No blue screens, no strange errors, no weird problems at all.

Need ideas and things to try.

Hello I just bought a lumia a couple of months ago Previously I had a lumia I liked very much I though the change to better hardware with a more modern operating system was a sure bet After I month of the Am disappointed/frustrated/angry update I on windows one 10 anniversary mobile? only of happiness anniversary update came along and the only two features in my opinion in which windows mobile was ahead of competitors have been downgraded - Glance screen is missing config options it already had I can understand not putting any more efforts on developing new features but removing the ones that are already there I charge my phone at night with a wireless charger and I have had to disable glance alltogether to be able to sleep in the dark please don't mention putting a paper on the phone as a smart solution for this nonsense - Kid's corner Am I the only one disappointed/frustrated/angry on anniversary update of windows 10 mobile? the envy of all my android friends is no longer there Android has need several main versions to get a children mode only available to newest devices and microsoft decides to remove it Great idea Apps corner is near to useless tiles cannot be set up they are reset every time you enter that mode I pinned the tile to start screen entered app corner and now there is no tile but it cannot be pinned again because it detects it is already pinned What sense does it make to upgrade an operating system to downgrade its features Please Microsoft the hardware of our devices is great much better than average give us the tools to make good use of it or release the specs to install some other OS which is interested on investing on improving their users experience I use my smartphone for work as a camera and to keep my children busy when I cannot play with them If I use my phone for so few things and I have come accross two quot downgrades quot I am sure power users must be quite disappointed too Or not Maybe I am the only one thinking that way Best regards

A:Am I the only one disappointed/frustrated/angry on anniversary update of windows 10 mobile?

I agree wholeheartedly! I've never understood removing features in a new version. For example, Groove music doesn't allow me to browse my music library from my car's head unit like Xbox Music did. All I can do is skip forward and backward.
Not phone related, but the Xbox One has no ability to limit children's play by time or number of hours/day like the 360 did. Why?!?!?

From ZDNet today: Windows 10 cumulative update causes 'reboot loop' havoc for some users | ZDNet

EDIT Although the article is for the update after 10 is installed, it's indicative of the initial installation also. Try disabling AV and Firewall. If no go, start in Clean Boot and then attempt.

Hello friends,
I have tried to update my Lumia 930 (which was already nicely running Windows 10) to its latest Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update and got stuck on the logo screen for indefinitely long time.
The update seem to have proceeded smoothly until the device restarts and displays the blue logo and then stuck there for ages.
Tried to factory reset and it ran the reset and then again stuck at the logo screen forever. The Device Recovery Tool is helpless as it cannot establish a USB connection with the device.
Goddamn, I should've never tried the damn Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update.
Updating Windows 10 Mobile is always very painful and extremely risky, no idea why Microsoft cannot engineer a proper update in 2016.
Any help guys? :'(
