Thumbs up Windows 10 - My 1010 Actually Likes It !! - 08-13-2015, 11:15 AM

When 10 became RTM I had a hunch that it would work fine on a netbook and sure enough.........
The upgrade advisor had originally said it would never work although I had Windows 7 Ultimate installed on it, but I persevered and used the x86 Win 10 Pro DVD that I had burned on my PC. It installs fine, but takes several hours to do so. Just attach an external DVD and install while logged into 7, if you have that on it a.t.m. That way all your files and settings are preserved.
The only casualty were the graphics as Windows insists on installing its own basic driver. That was easily cured by reinstalling the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 500 using Windows 7 compatibility mode. You'll see a warning that this is a lower version than the already installed version, just force that to go through and it all works. I also had to reconnect my Bluetooth mouse, and that was it!
Now for some major fiddles to get things looking a bit more the way I like them.
I find the 1010 has a new lease on life, it's faster than it ever was with 7 or before that, XP. So it can continue to be my standby machine should anything untoward happen to my tower.
If you download the Microsoft Media Creation tool it will actually offer to download both x86 and x64 ISO's of Windows 10.

Well each setup will be different. I assume you know to click Windows key + R and then type msconfig and click OK. Go to Startup tab. That will transfer you to the Task Manager's Startup tab and you can disable anything you think is unnecessary.

On a 1010 startup is pretty slow anyway due to lack of processing power in general.

You'd probably best be advised to start a brand new thread on this subject as I'm no expert in these matters.

I just tried disabling everything in my Startup and didn't notice much difference. The 1010 is slow to start with so it's hard to tell really if there was any difference.
