That SP1 in your list is just an updated wrapper, you can tell by the size of it.
Ok to install the sp1 wrapper then? If so, I will do it when I ready for my next backup/restore thing that I do.

Yeah, there's nothing wrong with that.

I recently had an issue with my sisters laptop. She reserved 10 because it was free and had no idea what she was doing. She thought it would be like 7 but better. Many users are unaware of the real changes. So eventually 10 downloaded and was in the update. If you go to updates it is sitting there telling you to restart to install 10 and will not allow anything else. There are too many occasions where people went to 10 and reverted back to 7 only to have issues. Its not a smooth revert process so I decided to get rid of the update. Well that was a task within its self. Microsoft spent somewhere around 14 hours over a 4 day span trying to prevent 10 from installing. They finally did it.

Here is where I have a big issue. Her laptop had windows 7. If you run the get Windows 10 it said her laptop was compatible for the 10 upgrade. Well the Microsoft rep told me it was not compatible. He said Lenovo did not have the drivers necessary to operate 10. I wonder why there are so many people that have gone from 7 to 10 posting everywhere that something is wrong after installing 10. Anyway here is an article I found that explains what is happening.

Yep quite a few people including myself have older machines
Mine actually came from Vista 6-7 y.o.
At 1 time M$ showed on it system requirement uefi bios was a requirement
It was removed at some point and I haven't noticed it being a requirement again

Funning deal is this same machine I was using for win-10tp testing from the beginning really didn't have any problems using 10tp at all except one lost old hdd got killed in the process

So the drivers deal is pretty weird thing and could be laptop related not sure on that but likely

I did install the final release and still did not have any issues besides the usual like bugs and quirks of win-10
So the upgrade in general sounds more buggy than a clean install would be with existing partitions and possibly existing other connected hdd's/..... to be mostly the problems that a upgrade would have installing.

This may explain why MS is pushing 10 so hard Windows 10's growth is very slow -- Windows 7 and 8.x users reluctant to switch

Perhaps MS is starting to worry about the success of it's new system and are resorting to the we'll get them when they aren't looking method.

I'm starting to notice AMD machines whether it's cpu or gpu AMD are struggling a lot more than pure Intel systems are with 10 :/
Upgrading well that is pure oem manufactures problems which always take time to catch up especially with providing drivers... for now unsupported machines.

I searched "KB3083710" and read a bunch of posts about it on other web sites. I had it installed, but since I've had MS change my update settings in the past, I decided to uninstall it. After rebooting, I checked the Windows Update page for for updates and it came up as an important update. I have hidden it for now, along with the other W10 related updates. So far, I have not been exposed to any W10 update pressure. I'll go if and when I'm ready.

Good to know possibly it is all about the computer manufacture and most of the users still using the factory install than a clean install ?
