Re: Windows 10 Has Took A Dump.


I'm having a happy chuckle.

When the W10 install took a chit on this laptop, I bought a OEM HP W7 Pro legit key.

Next, I downloaded an "All in one ISO" that came highly recommended by system builders.

Buzzing down through the options, I ignorantly selected "Ultimate Edition"- not knowing the huge difference in licensing.

So anyway, MS wouldn't validate install. After some days (45?) it booted with a screen each time telling me I had to validate or...

Turns out it was still fully functional, but desktop was black with no background - which didn't bother me, and a little bubble box that keeps popping up that says "activate now".

So, I just put up with it.

Yesterday, after reading this thread, I found an activation tool that works. None of the other "tools" had.

It was simple and fast.

Microsoft - sometimes I'm sure they are their own worst enemy.

For the first time in my entire life, I'm seriously considering an Apple for my next laptop.
