What Ryan posted works 100%. The day it came out I tried to do the method mentioned in the link that Ash posted, and it started the download but then failed the install.

I then used the media creation tool and it worked.

I've upgraded all my systems to it now (except my desktop PC). But both my personal and work Surfaces are running it. I've also done both the inplace upgrade and the "blow it all away" method, and am very happy with both. The inplace upgrade is just that... a true inplace upgrade - you lose nothing and all your apps still work 100%.

AAA+++ would recommend. Cortana doesn't work unless you set your region to US. And the "Hello Windows" thing that they were showing off doesn't work unless you got some special Intel camera that does the face recognition/retina scan thing.

I used the media creation tool too, and after a big of frigging around (resizing recovery partition eventually did it) everything worked. Same deal for ash's link, failed install. Had to tune a few things after installing, most notably the correct language so that shift '2' gave me an @ symbol and not ".

I like it, but a few things are still buggy (edge wouldn't let me ctrl-tab between tabs, crashes on shutdown with an applecharger BSOD, new tab in edge wont let me start typing straight away). It will be easier once everything supports windows 10.

Add to the list - CF card not recognised.

TBH - It still feels like a pre-release version.

And the clincher. Editing photos, when I scroll/zoom on the photo, the colours of the image changes which is really freaking annoying.

Ready to flip a coin on whether to persist or roll back.

Did what Ryan said and upgraded my new PC first. Basically a clean install so easiest to do and less issues if I ran into problems. Will have a play on that PC before I upgrade my iRacing PC.

Haha Microsoft. Proudly causing hardware compatibility headaches for the best part of 30 years.

Call me lazy but this is probably the biggest reason alone I switched to a mac and will not budge from it any time soon.

The bastard just works. And before anyone retorts my argument, bear in mind I obviously don't care for all out grunt/gfx/hardware tweaking/hardcore gaming or whatever people need a customisable PC for nowadays.

The graphics issue is an interesting one in that my computer has been running flawlessly since it was built in 2011. Then I realise it was built in 2011 - the same year I had an iPhone 4.

Hardware moves on.

One reason "Mac's just work" is because Apple only has to support a limited amount of hardware. When Microsoft bundles drivers into their operating system for the "out of the box experience" - they have to take into account every yum-cha variant of hardware and chipset there is out there. Not only from Intel, but from Asus, HP, Dell, IBM, Gigabyte, ASRock, Realtek, MSI, NVidia, etc etc etc etc...and not only different manufacturers, but also hardware that was made up to 10yrs ago.

The very fact that most of the hardware works when you install "Windows" is a small miracle in itself. And if it doesn't have a 100% compatible driver, you'll get something that can at least sort of get you going until you can find the right driver.

That's all well and good but give me a simple approach every time.

agree with everyone who rated Win7 as well.

As has been mentioned, there is probably literally millions of hardware combinations out there in PC world. After installing windows 10, the only issue I had so far was having reinstall one driver for a motherboard specific function. Only 1 out of the several installed for the motherboard. Oh and to download Windows 10 specific graphics driver for my nVidia GPU.

Isn't all Apple hardware more or less the same? (for each "model") So shit should "just work". That is the premium you are paying for.
