Negative. If you read my OP I already deduced that the hardware wasn't a problem and that consideration was eliminaetd because I'd already gotten extended displays working (with exact same hardware configuration) in a different OS (ubuntu).

I guess this just illustrates a ploy of microsoft's to sell more expensive os editions!

that starter pointer was great. Thanks again, alphanumeric and forum.

If I make progress with this (basically getting extended on netbook via windows with 3rd party or diff os edition, will notify).

hey alpha I really like your bare bones system setup! I have been oggling at parts for a year, and been off and on considering building a bbs for 3 years. egg and tom's hardware as resources, but have not yet done it! I def won't be getting a western digital hd, though. They're inexpensive and common, but not reliable from personal experience.

Thanks again for the informative responses. I find this thread useful.

Windows 10 Education 64 bit

For a netbook with no optical drive I would recommend doing the install from a bootable thumb drive. I do it that way on all my PC's, optical drive or not. It's more convenient and faster than doing it from the DVD. The Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool > Microsoft Store Online < will make one for you from an ISO image. The other option is to connect a USB DVD-ROM and install from a DVD. The simplest way that I probably should have mentioned first is Windows anytime upgrade. You buy your ungraded to say Home Premium and just enter the product code though anytime upgrade. All the features of the version you bought are unlocked and you don't have to install anything.

did you try extending using the keyboard shortcut? fn f6 or which ever function key it is on your netbook.
