Thank you for that information.

 

Could you post the steps that you took or send me a pm.

 

The laptop boots up enough to use the function keys and I think I can boot it from an external drive or memory stick.

I started to download to a usd drive and found that I need a more than 8Gb.

 

Down to the shop tomorrow and buy at least 16Gb if not a 32 Gb.

So there we go again...

For those that missed it, here's the procedure to do a Windows 7 "snapshot" and activate Windows 10 fresh install..

I did Google that....

 

Thanks for the credit....🙄

 

Perhaps you meant to write... For those who missed Jamjar's post..... 😉

8GB storage required for Windows 10 media creation tool.

 

I have just completed another Windows 10 pro install using $5 Ebay key.

Created bootable USB media for latest Windows 10 on 8GB stick (7.5GB formatted) using Microsoft creation tool without problems.

I only have some 4Gb sticks.

 

I have to be in Khampaeng Phet tomorrow for most of the day so I will buy a 16Gb stick.

Another example of misleading postings by billd766.... No wonder he is still at it a week after I gave him the correct solution and twelve days after he posted about the problem.

This could have been sorted the day I gave him the solution and also sent him an link to the exacting guide.

My thanks to almost all of you for your help and advice.

 

On Thursday I bought a 16Gb usb stick for 115 baht, formatted it and downloaded Windows 10 on Friday'

 

Today I stuffed it into my annoying laptop and with a few fits and starts I now have Win 10 back again. I used the windows activation code from my desktop and it now seems to be working very well.

 

Thank you once again.👍👍👍

I now also have my ethernet connection up and running.

 

That was the main reason why I was buggering about with it since it came back from the shop.
