Unrelated to OE as this is my home PC..
For those that have upgraded to 10, have you noticed any stability differences between the upgrade and doing a clean installation?
I haven't upgraded yet my home PC and was wondering the same abd which way would be "recommended"? Just goolged a bit. I guess the way to go is clean install even if it can be a bit more time consuming.
Well, I upgraded first only to find out that neither my wifi nor my wired networking was working anymore. So I ended up with a clean install, which was a clean install of 8.1 and 10 directly afterwards. So no experience with a real clean install.
I still have some issue with wifi however, if I disconnect from one network, my adapter doesn't pick up new networks.
You need to do the upgrade first so that your 78 or 8.1 license is transferred to a windows 10 one. it stores this against your windows/live account. But then if you do a windows 10 clean install it will remember the license details against your account and apply them automatically without the need to enter a license key. This is what I done and it worked without any problems.
Happy user of a upgraded Windows 10 on a Surface 3 pro.
No issues with a clean install on a XPS15. The only 'issue' to share is related to the 'new' 4k display and scaling in Windows. I had a bit of difficulty finding a solution that would allow me to work with a VM to my development box (running Win7 Pro) without everything in the VM window being minuscule in size. I found using RDCMan 2.2 worked if I reduced both the resolution and scaling by 50% (from recommended settings) in Win10 with the 4k display.
I have a Dell XPS 8500 at home (Windows 7). Early this year, I did the upgrade but a few things did not work (blue tooth for example) and my sound card driver wasn't compatible either. The Windows 10 upgrade adviser tells me that I am compatible but the Dell support site says differently and that no new drivers are coming. It doesn't seem logical, but I read of a few folks having success better success with a clean installation.
