Hi, britechguy & Joe C!
Thank you both for the prompt and insightful replies!
With the exception of Windows 10 Version 1511, all my subsequent new major Windows 10 version installs have gone perfectly, however I have clean installed most of them (including Version 1511, which was resolved that way) due to various minor issues that required it, but increasingly often without issues and as for Version 1709 an upgrade install with a DVD, which saved me a lot of time.
Due to the time difference, I routinely download the MCT the day after the new major Version is launched, and burn a DVD with it the second, and install on the third day, which allows for smoothly getting the new major Version with few to no issues.
For the record, I am running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit on a 2 years old Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0-4.2GHz LGA1151
Boxed/Retail CPU, so is that an older CPU?
You are correct that it is a Windows OEM computer, however, I actually bought all the components separately and built it myself with help from my dad, so IMO the OEM-concept does not quite apply.
So it is not like as if I am having any active issue, because otherwise I would have posted my topic in the Windows 10 Support
Forum, IOW I just asked for an opinion on the subject on a general basis
Thank you very much for the help!
