    Windows 10

    You can use a valid Windows 7 key to activate Windows 10 with the caveat being it must be the same versions....i.e. home to home and pro to pro you cannot use a 7 home to activate a 10 pro. You will not find ANYONE on here to give you ANY keys for ANY software as it is against the TOS Policy...

    How much do Windows 10 cost?

    I agree with everyone. A machine designed back in the XP days is not capable of upgrading to W10 for tons of reason. Back up your data and get a new machine. XP to W10 cannot and will not happen or work. It is not a matter of the drive it is a matter of the MOBO not being compatible. If...

    Win 10 Pro Hyper-v networking problem

    Thanks for the reply but since this was a lab exercise the IPs were provided and they were not APIPA (169.). Another teacher was consulted at the school and he pointed out that we needed to modify some settings that we overlooked. The setting we did not turn on was "Allow management operating...

    Win 10 Pro Hyper-v networking problem

    Hello, I am going through certification school and I am having problems with a lab and my tutor and instructors cannot figure the problem out either. I am using Hyper-v as opposed to Virtual Box because my Win 10 Pro machine was having problems with the VB and was already configured to do...

    Thank you for your prompt reply. I try to run a clean start up I will take a look at it again. Is there anything that you noticed that would need to run prior to windows loading?

    Win10 Pro Laptop suddenly cold boots extremely slow

    Hello, I am a help desk tech with 25 yrs experience so pretty skilled I would say. I am having a sudden issue with my personal laptop.

    Windows 10 Need help installing Windows 10 onto laptop running off usb drive

    I am not being mean and please forgive me for not knowing how to say this gently as my words are failing me and that is on me.....you made a comment yourself "as it was never built to run off a removable usb stick" so I hate to say this but - you cannot run Windows 10 off a removable USB. Part...

    Windows 10 Pro Hyper-v machine cannot get out to internet

    Sorry it took me a while to reply. That worked perfectly and immediately! It fixed it. Just a curious question though for the future. Did my teachers and I miss something in the GUI for the Hyper-V manager or the machine's settings itself that would allow for the bridging of the NIC?

    Need advice on doing a back up through old school methods

    You are correct that 15 GB is not much at all which is why I am looking forward to being done with all of my archiving and being able to clean out that Google drive and get rid of it completely and why I opted for the 10 TB online Degoo account. I was only mentioning the 15 GB google option...

    Need advice on doing a back up through old school methods

    Thanks for the suggestion but I already have the 10TB online account and Google offers 15GB free with every free Google/Gmail account........I already have a bunch of those and I'm not looking to scatter my data across multiple small accounts. I got the 10TB account because I already had a paid...

    Need advice on doing a back up through old school methods

    Hello, I have a laptop with a physical 2nd internal HD of 1TB and an old Seagate USB 3TB HD (did I say it was old?) that I am working on a data archiving project for. The drives are getting pretty full especially the 3TB because it is really old and I have been using it over the years to back...

    Streaming laptop versus gaming laptop - what is the diff between the two

    Hello, I will be upgrading within approximately 2 months from my 10 year old (but still rockin!) HP DV7 32US. One of the things I will be upgrading will be the laptop itself and I intend to build a couple of desktops also. My questions are similar to each other. What is the difference...

    My iCloud Photos installation is on crack

    Hello, I wholeheartedly agree with you on this and I already knew it. There have been instances however that some of the Apple support representatives have extended themselves to help with things involving their software on windows environments. As I probably mentioned I have been a helpdesk...

    My iCloud Photos installation is on crack

    Hello, I hit up Apple support with this one and they brushed me off/passed the buck with a "contact Microsoft because it's on Windows" type of unacceptable answer. I use the iCloud control panel on my Win10 Pro laptop because I have a 6th gen iPad and an iPhone 8+ and additionally use Outlook...

    Windows 10 Pro Hyper-v machine cannot get out to internet

    Does it do that just with Hype-v? The other students in my class that are using VB did not have this problem.

    Win10 Pro Sandbox - How to Activate (not enable)

    Hello, I suspected as muc, but is there any way to permanently activate it seeing as how I am the owner of the Win 10 Pro license? And can you please explain the Hyper-v you mentioned? I am in computer cert school and not yet familiar with that. Thank you.

    Hello, I have Windows 10 Pro and would like to start experimenting with virtual environments and would like to start with Sandbox which is built into Windows 10 Pro.
