Hi there
Upgraded without incident a W7 Ultimate system to W10 Pro.

I re-installed CLEAN W7 SP1 (also needed around 1GB's worth of post installation updates !!) with no other stuff added other than a proper video driver for the computer and the internal SD card reader driver. Activated it and then did the W10 Free upgrade -- ZERO problems -- all activated too - proper retail version.

So far I'm happy with W10. Re-installed my programs -- only those I really needed - amazing how much junk I got rid of.

Office 2016 trial (valid for 120 days) also great on this system.

Cheers
jimbo

Glad it had worked for you...Did you reinstall Windows 7 with the ISO Media refresh from DigitalRiver (though the links are dead bynow)? Could avoid the weight of some post installation updates too.

The upgrade is perfect to have a valid the Windows 10 license key but i think a clean install afterward of 10 would be the best .

I'll wait the SR1 release now to see if they are updating the ISO to download with the MediaCreationTool.



Meanwhile,

on my side i've repaired the 50 entries in the corrupted Task Scheduler for my Windows 7 x64 Pro, after the "Rollback" Windows 10 to Windows 7 using this method:

MS10-092: Vulnerability in Task Scheduler could allow for elevation of privilege

I still have few entries that couldn't be repaired because it tells "Invalid Format" for those tasks.

I found one to repair for Win7 x64 Pro,
C:\Windows\System32\Microsoft\Windows\Tasks\Perftrack\BackgroundConfigSurveyor.


Could someone upload for me those, please:

*C:\Windows\System32\Microsoft\Windows\Tasks\RAC\RacTask (OK, I found a file, Thanks!)

*C:\Windows\System32\Microsoft\Windows\Tasks\Shell\WindowsParentalControls

*C:\Windows\System32\Microsoft\Windows\Tasks\Tcpip\IpAddressConflict1

*C:\Windows\System32\Microsoft\Windows\Tasks\Tcpip\IpAddressConflict2

You'll have to rename as .txt for it to be uploaded to the forums.

Thanks that will be grateful.:)



EDIT: I found that script: Repair "Corrupted/Tampered With" Scheduled Tasks.

But,

Since this script is blowing away registry entries and files, I STRONGLY suggest you try this on one scheduled task at a time until you are comfortable with it. In other words use at your own risk.

While this has only been tested on a Windows 2008 R2 server, it should work on other versions of Windows. I hope this helps those of you who perform an in-place upgrade.
Did one have tested on a Windows 7 Platform?

Edit 2: the script doesn't run properly with SetACL.exe

I was thinking about the update but now I'm on indefinite hold.
There you go big brother is watching your every keystroke.
So MS is reading all your email if they so wish.
And all your files can be viewed.

This is very intrusive, also gives governments easy access to everything on your computer. No warrants, if they want to peer in they do so with windows 10?

I'm quoting myself to tell i found the trick to register in Task Scheduler & Registry those three corrupted tasks after the "Rollback":

*C:\Windows\System32\Microsoft\Windows\Tasks\Shell\WindowsParentalControls

*C:\Windows\System32\Microsoft\Windows\Tasks\Tcpip\IpAddressConflict1

*C:\Windows\System32\Microsoft\Windows\Tasks\Tcpip\IpAddressConflict2

You have to rename as .txt and open them. Simply remove first line and a bit of the second line of code that had been added with Windows 10 upgrade. Rename back and Import

What is the best approach put Win 10 on hold without giving up the ability to "upgrade" it to W10. Been an insider since the beginning, still waiting on my reservation to install. I want to let it install eventually (when MS tells me I can) and not use it and keep using Win7. I do not want to force the upgrade. I have W10 on other machines from the insider side and an upgrade from W8.1
