I got the notice in my tray that I could get a free upgrade to Windows 10
I read all the previews.
I read all the dire warnings.
I checked with equipment manufacturers sites to verify compatibility.
(Click HERE to see the full configuration of my system)
Then, I foolishly scheduled it to install on 8/8/2015.
Forty minutes after it started, it was done.
And everything works!
… Well, almost everything.
It still has the same strange bug when I put it in sleep or hibernate mode. (See below. Please help if you’re a techie!)
Other than that, it seems a bit faster, has some nice new features, and so far I like it better than Windows 8.
So, my advice? Verify all your equipment and drivers. Upgrade a laptop or secondary computer of you can first. Then double check that everything works properly before upgrading your main machine. And if it doesn’t work, don’t blame me! (There is a built in way to downgrade back to your old version, or so I’m told )
P.S. Here’s the info on my strange bug of you can help. When I put the system in sleep or hibernate, it sometimes loses the connection to my USB mixer (Alesis MultiMix 8 USB). It also resets my screensaver timeout to 1093 seconds. Weird, huh? I have gotten it to work correctly if I turn off the mixer before going into sleep mode, then turn it back on after the system wakes up. Any advice greatly appreciated!
