Hi guys i have a few questions. Forgive me for my lack of knowledge in advance.

I recently just bought a ssd to install my OS on it. Can i format my hdd now, install my windows 7 OS on my ssd and upgrade to windows 10 later ?

Is it considered as a clean install of windows 10 if i do so ?

Yes/no.

Clean install means when upgrading all files are cleared and you are installing windows 10 from win 7 in a clean state.

All applications will have to be reinstalled back by you.

Am I able to upgrade to windows 10 and at the same time install it on my ssd instead of my hdd ?

I think you need to clone the windows 7 partition from your hdd to ssd then upgrade the ssd's win 7 to win 10.

just now my father's dell laptop sound died
idt high definition audio

google searched quite useless mostly tech preview issues ... set filter to nearest 1 week
1 reddit result helpful
windows search Device Manager -> select sound and game devices -> select install driver -> select driver from my computer -> 2 options select file or bottom option -> click bottom option -> there are another 2 options for driver ... top one is the correct generic driver ... bottom one is idt high definition
click the top generic one not the idt ... can solve it

Hey guys,

Just so I'm sure ...

I need to do a clean re-install of Windows 7 on this laptop anyway, so I was thinking of getting the Windows 10 upgrade and secure the free activation 1st, then do my Windows 7 re-install ... that way when the time comes that Windows 10 is stable and I'm ready to switch over, it is still free :o

Can I confirm that both Windows 7 (or 8) and Windows 10 installed on the same machine will have the same serial?

I remembered 1 user posted a link to an app, which let you view, disable all or some of the privacy setting in Win10.

I can't seem to find the post anymore. Anyone know? Thanks.
