Hey,

 

So today I wanted to upgrade my Windows 7 to Windows 10. I also reserved my Windows 10.

I startet the "Get Windows 10" App, everything is okay then I click on "Let's get started". Since then I'm still in the "Get Windows 10" App/Window with the message "Please wait" while some white dots are going in circle above the message. I think nearly 30mins passed, if not more, and I'm still at the same stage...

I own an Acer Aspire 5755G with all updates installed.

 

I hope someone can help me..

 

P.S.: I hope you understand where my problem is. I own a french version of Windows 7 so I have to translate what I see in English.

Problem solved. I checked for updates and didn't find anything.

I just shut my laptop down. On the next day, I had to restart until the windows update found some more updates to do.

Today I did the update and everything seems to run good so far

The insane mysteries of Windows 10......very little/no rhyme or reason.....severe frustration in many areas.  And when it is "fixed"....there is no explanation......just "magic" !

 

(there is another word for it....but I will not use it here.....I'm sure you get my drift....)

Windows has to uninstall the AV so that it can install the upgrade. Sometimes it puts it back. Sometimes it doesn't. You may have to re-download.

I don't think it's true. Windows doesn't uninstall any program when it upgrades, it transfers them (so there's no reinstallation). If a program dissapear, it means that Windows wasn't able to transfer it properly, so you'll have to reinstall it.

Thanks, good to know why it can happen! I'll do that.

 

Two other questions:

  • is it normal that I always have to activate my numlock when my pc boots? (not a big deal but just asking as it wasn't like that with Windows 7)
  • Everytime I get to my desktop a message pops up: "The actual dolby audio version is 7.2.8000.17 but the version needed is 7.2.7000.4. Please install the driver and the compatible software." How to fix that?
