Short of HD space to install Win10 Ann Upgrade

Q: Short of HD space to install Win10 Ann Upgrade

I am unable to install Win 10 Anniversary upgrade on my Asus T100HA Tablet as there is insufficient hard drive space (HD Totals 32GB) I have only got 10.5 GB's free after removing everything I can except Norton AV. Can I use a USB Stick and, if so, how?

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,

I'm trying to upgrade my mini click to win10 with :
https://www.microsoft.com/fr-fr/acce...ndows10upgrade

But I'm facing the "Not enough space" issue with the upgrade tool. I have 17GB free space.
I think the error is not the good one ...

Somebody tried this way to upgrade?

Best regards,

I have a compaq presario laptop running windows xp which I clean installed a couple of weeks ago. Didn't pay any attention to it until it told me last week that I was about to run out of disk space. I have a 60gb hard drive, so I was surprised. Sure enough I looked and I have only 6gb of space left. I am certain that I wiped the disk clean before I installed. What could my problem be?

HP Laptop (2005 ish) had vista installed, I slapped win 7 pro 64 on it (forget if upgrade or fresh)
Then I tried win 10 on it.
- IT INSTALLED REALLY QUICK AND EASY-

So then I flattened the drive put win 7 back on and windows update caused me problems. Also the Blue tooth driver wouldnt work. hmmph

tried to win10 upgrade it again online.

2x attempts... hangs at 99% on the install portion. (left it going overnight)

Can't figure out whats the issue. Guess I'll try a fresh install from a iso or something.

This laptop is my 'tv server/storage' HP DV6 pavillion (1134)

1. I know it can work...
2. I know it doesnt work....

I know it must be me...

Stay tuned... I have caddies ssd's and 2 laptops and a desktop. hehe and a usb key from toshiba with a win 10 full factory reinstall ...for a toshiba not a HP...lol

might load a driver for my bong compiler. :

I find Win10 buggy and takes up a lot of disk space on my 32 gbs.capacity Acer One 10 laptop.

Always updating whenver I try to close or reboot my laptop.

I would stick with Windows 7 and not upgrade it.
It more reliable and easier to use.

A:Win10 upgrade VERY stubborn about refusing to install due to hardware

To force the upgrade from within Windows 7 you can extract the Media Creation tool ISO to the desktop and click on setup.exe. ISO - Disk Image File : Extract to the Desktop - Windows 7 Help Forums

If the upgrade doesn't work you can look at or post here the setuperr.log and setupact.log files generated to see what was wrong. It might of course fail because of the network drivers it is complaining about in which case you can uninstall them from device manager and try again.

Probably wise to make a backup before just in case.

p.s. looks like it can be made to work even though G780 isn't supported...






I unfortunately had to completely Reset Windows 10, but at least I now can use the internet on my laptop. :/

Will the Windows 10 "free" upgrade follow any redirects I have added to my Win7 Home Premium installation?

When I installed Win7 on my 250GB SSD, I used an XML script to relocate the Profiles Directory and Program Data folders from my SSD to my hard drive. This saved space on the SSD and simplified future program installs, since they followed these redirections. However, I am concerned that the Win10 upgrade may not do so. Thoughts?

On a related note, I also use OneDrive for multiple users -- a different login for each Windows user account. I understand that Win10 is tightly integrated with OneDrive, but is limited to accessing one login.
Must I use just a single OneDrive login across the entire machine (i.e., all Windows user accounts)? Or does each account get to login to its own storage on OneDrive?

Thanks, in advance, for any enlightenment.



Hi and welcome to Tenforums.

I have sometimes seen in the past, problems with relocated user directories. You can try the upgrade, and if it fails, set the pointers back to default (you don't have to actually move the data).

Each user account can have an MS login. Or, you can have local accounts, and only sign into MS apps as required. That's what I do.

Since you have a W7 machine, you might want to read this post:

Good luck.

Hi.
I just did a fresh install of Win7 Ultimate SP1 on my PC, since the previous install was all crooked and had problems with viruses.
Now, I would like to keep Win7 just as a temporary tool, since all I want to get is the Win10 Upgrade tool and get the new release.
Since I don't want to install all 230+ Updates before getting the Upgrader (GWX), I'd like to ask which updates I mandatorily have to install in order to get the Upgrader. Microsoft's page regarding the update (KB3035583) does not tell me that I need some updates beforehand.

Any Ideas?

A:Not enough disk space to upgrade install windows 7?

Hello Allan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since this was for corrupted files, you might see if downloading and running the 64-bit (x64) System Update Readiness Tool for your same installed 64-bit Windows 7, restart the PC afterwards, and try the sfc /scannow command again may help to fix any corrupted system files.

If that doesn't help, then I would recommend a clean install instead for the best results.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello,

I received the free win 10 upgrade from an invitation to reserve the upgrade. The other day, a Ransomware hit me, and though I believe I may have immediately tracked & deleted all affected files I could find, I hardly believe I could be so skilled as to be successful.

I had this happen last year, and ended up formatting the unit, and reloading Win 7. I don't want to have to go back to 7, but how do I get another Win 10? Is there a key I need to find & save? A free site that I can get a copy on a flash drive to load from? Any help would be appreciated. I have no clue how to proceed since it's an online download, and once formatted, the unit won't be able to get online without the OS

Thanks

A:short disc space

there are a variety of things you could do, including the following:

Move the My Documents folder to the other partition using this guide http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/win_xp_mydocs.htm

You could uninstall some programs and then re-install them on the larger partition.

You could delete all of your current restore points, and reset the size of the system restore utility. Also empty all of your temp files and empty the recycle bin.

Or you could resize the partition using a free partition manager like the one found here http://www.ranish.com/part/

I cannot vouch for the above program as I have not used it. You should always backup any important files before changing partition sizes, in case something goes wrong. I have always used partition magic to resize partitions, although you need to pay for this one http://www.powerquest.com/partitionmagic/

Re-sizing the partition to at least 10 GiG would be better.

A:insufficient disk space on brand new win10 laptop to do initial update

The update you are talking about was the major upgrade to 10586 while hasically reinstalls the OS but keeps all the data. This memory issue fortunately only affects that update!

You can remove the flash drive now and it should work fine.

Try this first, and if it is fine, you can format drive to reuse it.

More importantly, buy an SD card (64GB I would recommend) and move your data to it.

You can set it up in storage so all data is stored on sd card.

You can also set it up so programs and apps are stored there as well but I would only do that later if memory becomes a problem.

Now upgrade has been done, you should install Macrium Reflect Free and make a backup of the installation to a usb stick. You will need to create a Macrium Rescue drive, and a backup image (recommend a 32GB flash drive). We can guide you through this.

Once you have done the backup, run disk cleanup to delete the old installation files (selecting to clean up the system installation files).

The most likely suspect is a bad video chip.

Now it could be a power related problem too, or heat, but if you have used good parts and a cool case and have tried multiple versions of the driver then it starts looking like hardware failure is likely.

Who makes your 550W power supply?

Double check all of your connections.

Because you may find that you need to install the Windows 10 driver for it after upgrading. With most notebooks there are two or three different adapters that could be installed. It helps to what is installed in yours.  Use the search functiion in the forum and search for windows 10 wifi driver. You will notice that many members did not take the time to either locate the driver or know what is installed.

I have an older laptop (probably 6-7 years old, Dell Inspiron running Windows 7) and its been running fairly slow lately. I saw a notice that today is the last day to upgrade to Win10 for free. Just looking for some good advice on whether or not I should even consider upgrading.

My first thought is that, with an older machine, I probably have a lot of junk on my hard drive causing the slowness so I need to clean it up (which means I'll miss the "today is the last day" bit...but do I really care?). I also think maybe my processor won't be able to handle the new version, but not sure if that's really a concern or not.

Can I ask for some advice? Thanks

My wife's computer could not upgrade to win 10 cause it had an old video card. I upgrade motherboard and video card. Win 7 is registered, but can not upgrade. The free upgrade tool still shows the other video card. Tried the media creation tool and still goes back to the upgrade box with the old card. Is there anyway to erase that upgrade box and redue it?

A:Help with win10 upgrade

Check for any left over files or drivers from your old video card. Windows is still finding it somewhere. Check your device manager 1st just to see if its listing 2 video cards, then check your program folders for any left overs. Also just for backup reasons, download a program on this forum called Showkey which will give you the information on your currant Windows Key, incase you need it to upgrade to Windows 10.

I have been having so many problems with the Windows 10 installation I'm thinking about going back to Win7 until MS works out all the bugs in Win10.

My PC came with 8.1 and updated to Win 10. Win10 was fine until the last major update when everything went h--- in a hand-basket. Update reset everything to defaults, installed apps I'd uninstalled.

Question: Can I remove the HD with win10 and put it on the shelf until MS gets it running. I want to install a bare HD and install a valid genuine Windows 7 OS on the bare drive. Is there anything I need to know before I give this a try? I know I'll have to reinstall all programs and all missing win7 updates...

Will I be able to install the Win 10 HD at a later date, install updates and be back up and running under Window 10 user accounts?

A:Install Win7 to replace OEM win8.1 w/Win10 install

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Since you're talking about a separate win-7 installation on the machine your plan is sound and exactly how you should do it

You might in your bios have to disable fast start and possibly secure boot but otherwise you shouldn't have any problems installing win-7 fresh
You might have to gather drivers if this is a laptop but a desktop would have no issues windows updates will provide most
If you review device manager and see if any unknown device listings are there just post about them same goes for installation of win-7 issues.

My current computer has a retail copy of Win8. I'm building a new PC this weekend and I want to utilize the free upgrade to Win10 from my current retail version of 8, but I understand the free upgrade is tied to hardware.

Would my best option be to migrate Win8 to the new PC and upgrade from there? Alternatively, would I be better to just upgrade to 10 now and then migrate to the new PC afterwards? I imagine I can just discover the product key using something like Belarc Advisor, but then I don't know if the key will be accepted for activation on the new hardware... Thoughts?

Hi everyone, this is my first visit and post and I hope you can assist
where others have failed. I have tried to install Win 10
on two machines and neither of them would work, both telling me that the CPU was not
good enough or words to that effect.

PC1 has Intel Pent G3220 3.00 GHz Haswell chip.

PC2 has Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E8400 @ 3.00 GHz.

Both of these are way over the required
minimum spec so I cannot understand why Win10 will not install.

A:Unable to upgrade to Win10 or even try it out.

Welcome to the forum. Its likely either your cpu cant handle PAE, NX and SSE2 or its not set in the bios

To test for PAE, NX, and SSE2, download a program called "CPU-Z" and run it. On the main window, look under the "Instructions" heading for SSE2, EM64T (which also indicates the processor supports PAE) and either VT-d or VT-x, which is required for NX support. If you have all 3, then you are good to go.

Hello!

I have a strange issue where after a full shut down in Windows 10, the motherboard is still delivering power to my connected devices such as my headset, keyboard, mouse and monitors i.e. all the lights on these devices are still on, whereas previously in Win7 they would all turn off.

I did an in-place upgrade from Win7-Win10 and adjusted no motherboard BIOS settings.

I've looked through the Win10 power options and can;t see anything relating to keeping devices on after a shut down. I assume this is so USB devices like phones and tablets can charge from USB when the PC is off? However I don;t need this feature if that's the intention.

Any ideas? Is windows 10 (vs win7) sending a different command back to the MB on a shutdown?

MB: Asrock P67 Extreme 6
CPU: Intel 2600k

A:Motherboard Power Still On After Win10 Upgrade

Some motherboards have a USB power feature even when the computer is switched on.
This sound like your issue. This can be adjusted in the BIOS settings.

Look in the BIOS for an option called EUP Turn it off.
Or maybe ErP Ready. Turn it on.

Edit: One more thought... when you installed the motherboard chipset drivers you may have installed a small program that allows for the charging of USB devices when the PC is off.

A:MS says I can't upgrade my laptop as HP has not tested win10 on it.

I'll take a stab at this one..
From my experience with HP they do drop support for some of the products and you get stuck with the last OS that was installed on it.,. for example I had a nice desktop and it only would support Win7. When I tried to run Win8 on it .. well it would work fine but when I went to shut it down for the night and restart it that's when it would fail. Seems HP will not provide the updates to support new OS's. And this also applies to other OEM's.

Now having said all of that here is one option you have. Make sure you can make a system backup and backup your personal data. When that's done make sure you can restore the system and you're comfortable with the process.

At this point you could perform a clean instillation of 10 and see what happens. IF it fails to work properly just restore your PC to the previous settings with the backup you made.

... yes.. complicated but that's the best advice I can offer at the moment
And welcome to the forums

Hi: I have the 8200 Elite CMT (i7-2600, BIOS J01, v2.28) and had no issues upgrading to W10. I would suggest you upgrade from the link below and see if it bypasses the hardware check. You can try the upgrade now, or make an installation disk or flash drive via the media creation tool. The disk/flash drive does not check compatibility. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

A:Can I upgrade h8-1230 from Win7 to Win10?

Greetings, Win 7 upgrades to Win 10 can be problematic with no easy way back to Win 7 unless you have a good image and bootable rescue media. The safest way to upgrade is to clone your existing Win 7 install to a second HDD or SSD. Connect only the cloned HDD to your PC to do the upgrade. Carefully read this entire article by Ed Bott to learn what needs to be done, and the time invested, if you have to rebuild Windows 7.  Win 10 may have the correct WLAN driver as well as all other drivers needed to run correctly or the upgrade could choke. You still have the original Win 7 install on the first HDD and can move on with your computing life. Cheers!

Hi all,

You were all so helpful in getting me through my last Win10 experience that I decided to give it another go

I just finished upgrading my kids' PC from Win7 to Win10, and since the upgrade the system has been hard-freezing -- no responsiveness from mouse or keyboard, screen frozen in place.

I'd heard that there may be issues with USB drivers (since the motherboard is fairly old), so I reinstalled the latest from Gigabyte earlier today, but no dice.

Any advice would as always be appreciated! Thanks in advance,

I have three computers in family that were given upgrades on the win7 family plan. One was just informed it was eligible for win10 upgrade. I think I made the mistake of custom install (for a clean install) instead of an upgrade and, related to other problems with windows update, I might have lost my activation on win7. Long story short, when I got to the point where win10 was installed and asking for a key I knew I had done a no no as, if I had done it correctly, I should not have been asked for a key. Of course I have no key but the win7 key and the install just sits there with no options but to input the key, which I don't have. What's my best course of action here?
thanks in advance

Well one of those is out. I run the new Win10 version of wuapp.exe which is "start ms-settings:windowsupdate" and it does nothing. So, anyone know how to revert to Win7 via command line or what the KB# is for the fix?

I have a SATA-1 TSSTcorp TS-H653 (not sure whether it is an F, G, H etc.) CD/DVD writable drive in an Inspirion 537s. I recently upgraded to Windows 10 Pro from Windows 7 Ultimate, but the drive is not recognized by the OS. However, the drive does show up in BIOS. I have searched and cannot find a driver for this drive. Any advice or assistance?

I'm having exactly the same problem with the same drive as well. Baffling

Hey, I am facing an error. I am trying to install win10. I am on win7 x32bit. I have official win10 iso from ms official site. Also I once installed 10 using this file but now it gives me error code 0xc19001-0x20017 something like safe_os phase error during boot. I tried many fixes like uninstalling antivirus software and all. Now I am tired. So looking forward to the solution. Please help me out.

Looks like the old Intel bios microcode update causing those shenanigans - see here

To MS Engineers;

Hi there. I'm not sure who to address this to but hope you read it anyways;

I have a Dell Inspiron 1535 Studio, Intel Dual core WIN7, just upgraded to WIN10.
After the upgrade, My Counterstrike game wouldn't play like it used to. The game lags, very slow. The display shows every movement, together with the sound, as if it's a slo-mo frame-by-frame photo shoot. That's the best description I can come up with.
I'm not a technical guy so I thought I should ask, if there's any way around this? Make the game playable (smooth..) again.

Thanks.
