    Lost network after 1803 update

    ...absolutely; 1st: they were communicating "before" w/o trouble; 2nd: I have tried 'ALL' of the many suggestions, renamed the network to myNAME, signed out-and-in to make it stick; automatic activation etc etc -- right now I cannot even 'see' any of the other PC. I erased those 'media-network'...

    Network connections not restored after upgrade to 1803

    ...as so many other suggestions - this too has NOT worked for me, or rather "I have done all of that" and Network between 2 win10pro (64) PCs never came back to live. Shame on MS for changing (a) my most elementary settings back to (their) Standard and (b) for disappearing HOME- or other...

    Windows 10 not booting anymore

    ...1st - y'all know more about the details - I have never been a true programmer (nor did I want to) beyond BASIC, some Cobol and Fortan in the 80s - their good ol' times. As to windows, I can literally see that they just added more and more - never did I sense a true start-from-scratch; hence...

    Windows 10 not booting anymore

    Keep ranting: I'll chime in. The OS-coders should just start with their OS basics and eventually let people (gradually and specifically) ask for 'more' -- be that the 1-10% of what they would ever work with, to begin with. F.i.: gimme the sign-in (if you have to) and just be ready for - wiring...

    Windows 10 not booting anymore

    just FYI: I stripped that win10pro of all I thought could meddle like the Russians with elections - to no avail. I left it on a sadly unused terabyte-SSD just to get back to that challenge 'one day' - if ever. Despite win10 boot (non) features, I did find a way to get back into my virgin win10+...

    Windows 10 not booting anymore

    DAMN - and I thought it was me who was out of track. Win10 (update or other hidden processes) should never make changes in any personal settings and less so impede a normal standby and/or hibernation process - gimme a break! But - I hear you loud and clearly . . . THANKS for all you tried to...

    Windows 10 not booting anymore

    Thanks again, you are very patient. It bugs me that MS has never truly bothered to make things intuitively - sure, as of lately .. at least trying. I saw your suggestion as to standby (Energiesparen) // hibernate (Ruhezustand): it did work before on the master, why not on the clone?! Beats me...

    Windows 10 not booting anymore

    Hi, -Not sure how to get to that "Disk manager - Right click on start" -- is that out of the win10 tiles view ?! In search it says 'nothing found'; OK -- late here in Europe, will try again Monday. I also have to find out WHY THE HECK win10 would prevent me from hibernating or power-save mode -...

    Windows 10 not booting anymore

    wow, maybe 'late' but very useful. THANKS!! 1- I used all kinds of programs, including the paid-for ACRONIS - but all failed to basically give me the immediate Bootability. I have SATA racks, so sliding out the old (original) and in (the cloned system drive) after power-down and re-booting - is...

    Windows 10 not booting anymore

    I had answered this - but I do not SEE anything from me... I shall look again - and re-publish. Basically I wondered why win10 cannot get its act together regarding a clean-cut BOOT-MANAGER that auto-updates itself -- no matter how many (theoretically) bootable discs are hooked up. My clone is...

    Windows 10 not booting anymore

    Thanks, appreciating your hints. - As to "healthy system" - CCleaner says all is all OK; are there any on-board tools to make the system 100%? - As to creating a Recovery Disk - came back wit error "cannot create" - no explanations given; and System Restore --> has never worked for me... - As to...

    Windows 10 not booting anymore

    Thanks Gary, A minor inconvenience is - I am US, live in Spain for now and got the machine + OS and all in German... 1- On this machine (Intel i7 3.4 GHz) I started years ago with a 64 bit win-7 (home premium?!) - bought the upgrade to win-8 thru MS, then win-8.1, got the free "win-8 to...
