Ever since Windows 10 was released last week, a lot users have upgraded, but many users have been experiencing certain problems with their upgrade. The following is an instruction on how a Windows 7 or 8.1 user can upgrade to Windows 10, as well as a list of common error messages that users have complained about over the weekend as they have attempted to upgrade.
If you haven't received the Windows 10 upgrade, it can be obtained for free. According to the official Windows 10 upgrade site from Microsoft, all that is required is clicking on the Windows 10 icon on the System tray. If that icon isn't there, try running the Windows Update and install any available required and recommended updates for Windows 7 or Windows 8 PC. From there, it is about clicking the "reserve your free upgrade" in the App window, and enter your email for confirmation of reservation. You can then download Windows 10 to your device and Microsoft will notify you when it's ready.
Some of the problems with Windows 10 that have been reported are pretty severe. For example, a lot of Lenovo users have been reporting that their Wi-Fi doesn't work after the Windows 10 upgrade. Fortunately, there is a solution for that as the Lenovo Forum reveals that Microsoft has a solution for this issue. It can be found at the Microsoft Support.
Another error that users might be experiencing is an incompatibility with the new Intel Iris, Iris Pro, and HD Graphics Production Driver for Windows 10, 64-bit. According to Intel Communities thread, this was a cause of some key issues for Windows 8 DirectX10 and Direct X11 games running on touch enables system that would run with a "centered" scaling if the resolution was set to less than the native panel resolution. This is an issue that has been fixed on Windows 10.
It is possible to receive a driver that adds support for the new Microsoft Windows 10 64-bit operating system for Intel 5th Generation Intel Core Processors and 4th Generation Intel Core Processors with Intel HD Graphics and Iris Graphics. This new driver also supports various Windows 10 features and can be downloaded on the Intel site.
Some Windows users might be attempting to install Windows 10, but you might be getting a certain error code. Microsoft support has a page that will show all the error codes along with "what it means and how to fix it".
There are also some other issues that users have faced in attempting to upgrade to Windows 10, and there are other sources that can be found that will aid in this problem. For example, a recent article on Gotta Be Mobile highlighted several issues such as Where to Reserve a free Windows 10 Upgrade, How to do a Clean Windows Install, and an issue of "Windows 10 is not genuine".
