Default Re: Restoring a WIN8 backup to a WIN 10 'puter

Actually, I have tried at least 3 versions of Linux. My biggest problems have been getting the GUI to work right and managing the non-feedback command prompt. I never could tell where I was within the file structure.

In any case, I just bit the bullet with a loaded 17” H-P laptop. It's got Win10 bundled.

If I can't get my files moved over to Win10 from my Win8 image backup, I'll figure out how to re-partition (low level format, if necessary) to get rid of Win10 and then do a normal rescue and restore of my Win8 backup.

If the machine won't let me do that, I'll send it back for a refund and start over.

Every time I have to do an upgrade, I get into a hassle. By the time I figure put what I'm doing, I'm done and forget the procedure until I have to do it again.


Take care - Elden
