    If we are talking about that windows blue screen w/ buttons bullshit you get to occasionally, I'm with you there. That thing is useless. Never fixes anything. I would need to go back in your post to see why I said what I said. Long day.

    I installed Windows 7 media, installed over the top - Essentially no different to an in place upgrade. Your post was a load of tripe. If your stuck in a Windows 10 recovery loop which has nothing to do with hardware failure your advice will be totally useless as you're booted into the installation media and not the failed OS in question.

    Good to see you're still doing your best to spread the good word of Microsoft while some of us simply state the facts.

    Which is what I'm talking about.

    [Edit]: Alcohol fixes long days quite effectively. ;)

    "Facts" You cannot install Windows 7 over the top unless you can boot into Windows, enter in the administrator account and you need the exact same Windows 7 on the install media that is install on the existing computer. (Prove me wrong, go ahead, you will not be able too.) As for my response, it is not tripe but experience, just pleased I am actually able to fix thing without complaining. As for the Windows 10 recovery screen, it is part of the process, deal with it or don't, just the way it is.

    "Good to see you're still doing your best to spread the good word of Microsoft while some of us simply state the facts." The best technicians are able to actually think through things without attacking.

    fits well with the windows memory test. worst pieces of shite ever. was the absolut worst contender in my 12 memory test try out
    Would run 4 hours without finding errors in a system where the ram was so bad you couldn'tt not boot into windows. and evne on a system that would show graphicval artifacts due to bad RAM.

    @OP
    When you have instabilites issues you should always do a propper HW test before messing with software
    Did you run a proper memory test (memtes86+)

    Yes. However, that is not what the person I quoted was referring too, of course.

    Yeah you can, it's no different to an upgrade install. In fact, that's essentially exactly what it is.

    You're the one that attacks mate, any time someone calls Microsoft out. I'm just replying with the same attitude.

    You assume I'm an idiot and you're wrong.

    It also destroys your health quite effectively. Which is a real shame, I love the stuff.

    Installing over the top and an inplace upgrade are not the same as what you were referring to, which is essentially a clean install, minus the formatting of the hard drive. I clearly explained to him what I was referring to and how it was done but instead, he called what I said a load of tripe and said I was wrong. (I wasn't but hey, whatever.) As to what I think of him personally....... (That is all that needs to be said.) As for using the word idiot, I hate that word and do not use that towards anyone, considering the experience I had from a previous toxic work environment and the use of that word.

    Once again.

    It is entirely possible, up until Windows 8, to install Windows 'overtop' of the existing install without formatting and no data will be lost. You do not need identical service packs or any such garbage - You simply install over the top exactly like an in place upgrade. It was a great way to recover a failed Windows install assuming the bulk of the OS and user profiles were still intact.

    You are wrong.

    That is not an over the top install but a brand new install of Windows that you are describing. It will backup the user folders in Windows.000 and then you have to install all your programs, drivers and setup everything from scratch. Installing over the top is installing on top of an existing Windows install that leaves everything in place, user accounts, programs, settings, everything and therefore, I am not wrong.

    Nope, not at all. This is installing Windows over top if the existing install. Done it many, many times from the early Win9x days onwards. As stated, from Windows 8 onwards the possibility has been made considerably harder to the point of making it unrealistic.

    Either you are being stubborn, which we all can be from time to time, we are not talking about the same thing or....... :confused: Suffice it to say, this thread is pretty much done, I would be curious to see what the OP did to fix it but, doubt we will ever know.

    I believe you just don't know what you're talking about as you can't get over anything from Windows 10 onwards.
