How did you reinstall windows? Did you use a recovery partition on the drive, or did you use a install CD/USB?

Reinstalled useing a recovery partition, not a ISO. I chose not to keep anything. If that makes a difference. Should have reverted back to the factory install.

Which should have been Win 8 but I noticed while reinstalling that it started from 8.1????

Are you sure you recovered to Windows 10?  Press the Windows + Pause (or Pause/Break) Keys simultaneously and that should take you to Control Panel-->System where you will see the version of Windows you are on.  I have a hunch you didn't recovered your system to Windows 10 but to your previous Windows version instead.

Apparently, my hunch was wrong.  Furthermore, I am puzzled as to how you could have recovered from a Windows 10 recovery partition.  AFAIK, the free offer to upgrade to Windows 10 does not create a recovery partition.

Seems normal to me, its not unusual for OEM's to reserve a space for system recovery

I assumed it used a recovery partition since I did not install or use a ISO. What ever it used was already on the system.

I was not aware that a recovery was not created when the origional OS was installed.

Keep in mind I pretty much jumped straight from Vista to 8; 8.1 and then 10.  Vista was on a different computer. It was not untill I started comeing back to Bleeping computer that I found out The OS is no longer a OS but a service.

Could you explain what you mean by "it"?

with OEMs not shipping disks anymore, most will create recovery partitions these days.

That isn't very helpful.

 

Did you perform the recovery from Settings as shown in the screenshots below...
