    how long does this last? should I just let it go? there's so many sticked threads here it is very confusing.

    I downloaded the latest ISO (or it was the latest a few days ago) and now I'm running the setup.exe from a windows 8.1 enterprise trying to upgrade to 10 enterprise.

    stuck at 67-68 for now 1 hour 13 minutes.

    HD light blinking but not solid. if it wipes my data I will be pissed. have no room for backups.

    edit: I did the same overnight from an 8.0 and it worked but I don't know how long it took.

    these are older machines that will need a intel 965 fix that I hope will be on Windows Update.

    edit: they are both offline at the moment.

    so this has to do with 8.0 and 8.1 activations that WERE online, but now they aren't. if that matters.

    I still have to do a Win 7 but that will be later.

    edit: made to 69% on the 8.1. 1 hour 39 minutes.

    edit: it sucks fooling around with win 8.0. win 8.1, win 7, win 10, win server 2019, and Apple iOS whatever it is update all at the same time. + android

    edit: plus I'm doing an offline XP install for someone which is easy that is just HP disc

    edit: bumped to 78%. 1 hour 46 minutes

    edit: 78 and counting to 87. why do they bother with percentages? how do they calculate them?

    Honestly you should be pissed off... But pissed off at yourself.
    Anyone using a computer should know that backups are essential, paramount, primordial, basic, mandatory... should I keep going to stress how important a backup is?

    There many suitable ways to backup data! Not to have room for backup isn't an excuse, it just shows the inability to work properly with a computer which contains (sensitive and other) data!

    To say not to have room for backup in general, should simply keep off his 'fingers' from to play with the most important app of a computer: the OS!

    sometimes, resources may not come handy than to let go our "wants" even if we are not ready yet.
    So, "losing files" should be in the list and always be in list of our "expected result".

    If its orignal iso
    Open cmd with shift f12
    Open taskmgr
    If everything is running good
    So its doesnt relate to faulty hdd
    If its slow and barly opening check its health
    And start backup thing to be sure or ask for more info

    It actually came right back.

    it went to 67% pretty fast, then it took 7 hours. 12 minutes to complete.

    Full backups can be annoying. But at least dump any important documents on a flashdrive...

    If the drive doesn't have plenty free space the operation will be slow af, with you upgrading, the installer will have to move all your files, entire drive's fragmentation is also affecting the process. As long you see the drive and CPU working you're fine, should worry when both that sits idle.

    For years since XP and 7 i ran into issue 2 times and lost a few files, i never again store important files on C drive, the ones stored there now are expandable.

    ok I cleaned up my "live blog" I guess it was. maybe an admin can delete the empty posts apparently I can't do that.

    it's just a lot of data. I need some new drives. the important things are duplicated it would just be a big pain to deal with.

    I checked all the hardware before doing this just so everyone knows. I took it completely apart and used air duster and all of that. it is almost 10 years old. if I was getting paid to do this it would be a different story but this is just my own hobby stuff.

    everything seems fine.

    old and not updated.

    Excuses. If you're really "hurt" and in pain to deal with it then I hope you put together yourself and have a brief grief if a disaster happens now or future.

    Are you aware that HDDs/SSDs at certain point in their lives, die?
    And when they die recovery can cost you a lot of money paying specialized services or could be impossible to recovery any file.

    Also, are you aware there are many softwares that release from the pain of doing file backup?

    These are my last words on the subject. Read about backup, study about backups. Your data could be gone forever and you will never be able to retrieve it back.

    I agree with everything that you've said and that's what I tell people. I was just complaining because I was "live blogging" or whatever.

    my new problem is I can't get firefox to install on 1809.1 and iTunes is really messing with me but it always does on Win 10.

    Microsoft Edge left a shadow window up after I ended task on Edge AND Explorer. there was just a garbage window sitting there that did nothing. couldn't close it, couldn't do anything.there is an update roll up apparently that I have to get but I can't get the stupid iPhone to work for tethering. what a nightmare.

    anyway no big deal I have other machines

    edit: these are Win 10 Enterprise systems upgrade from Win 8 and Win 8.1 Enterprise to 1809.1 and I'm messing with iTunes 12.9 or whatever it is and Firefox 63.x? and Chrome 70.x

    why am I beta testing for corporations that have trillions of dollars? I dunno but I'm taking a f**king break.

    edit: I'm also dealing with Intel 965. that's a research project in and of itself. it's almost no longer supported unless someone writes something for it. usually the BIOS updates solve the problem though. guess I should go to hardware forum with this.

    edit: the fact that I lost a core on a core 2 duo tells me it's a BIOS problem or I have to clean the thing out, if anyone has any insight into that... I did a BIOS update on one and it does well. so I wanna try a BIOS update on the other one.

    edit: I'm using #3 rigjht now and it works so I'm hesitating to mess with it. I had a Pentium 4 that s**t the bed though.

    edit: the P4 is obviously 32 bit toasted cheese sandwich. whatever. it's a DVD player now.

    this is a good comment. must be intel 965

    also still no activation issues. just a Windef bark.

    I did the old version wipe as well. still no problems besides Apple but Apple always gives you problems.

    if anyone knows anything about Apple/Microsoft interface please post it here.

    edit: as a side note it also needs an additional 2 GB of ram. so to put it mildly I had a long day. a lot of you probably have 16 or higher. I do say that Win 10 works with very little resources. even the newest builds.

    I'm aware. optical media will not last forever either. any backup dies. a cloud storage facility could be nuked. you can only do so much.

    I have deleted your empty posts...

    BTW: Regardless of your backup politics. An Operating System should be on its own partition (even better on an own physical SSD). And there should be the OS alone, no data.

    If you don't change your politics you'll learn it the hard way....for instance losing pictures, own projects. Files, data which have required a lot of your time to create them.

    Think about which of your data would make you cry if irreversibly deleted/lost.....(if there is no/no way then you are fine)
    Then get an USB HDD drive for your backups, dunno how much it is...I am using a 2TB drive that's sufficient for my own personal stuff to backup.
    Should I lose the 'rest' I can live with that....
