    Quick one for people having issues. Ensure that your drivers on Windows 7/8/8.1 is fully up to date and WHQL approved/certified BEFORE attempting the upgrade.

    so i went ahead and upgraded to win 10 last night,

    first thoughts - not happy

    i can no longer access my network shares....

    some folks online had the same issue and fixed it with regedit - but doing registry editing on day one of a new OS, drives me up the wrong way, and cause its so new, cannot find a workable fix for my issue.

    colour me not impressed

    Mine works, but asks for a password (never use to) still trying to figure out how to get past it.

    Bet you have a pin logon active, for some reason some PC's networking dies the moment you have pin logon active,

    1 fix and 1 workaround

    Fix: Remove pin by clicking I forgot my pin and go through the steps till you need to enter a new one. Instead of a new one just click cancel. Then reboot. You will have no pin logon but your networking will be back up and running

    Workaround: Use command lines to map network drives. ala "Net use x: \\system\share u:user password" Only problem with workaround is that you will need to do that at every reboot, but can be sorted with a simple bat file that you run at start-up with all the drives that you need.

    I'm going to try and upgrade my machine one more time - if it fails this time I'm going to format, do a clean install of Win 7, and try from there. If it still fails, then fuckit ... Win 7 still works and should tide me over for a while.

    one tip i'll give everyone. use the media creation tool from Microsoft to download the ISO for the version you'll be using.

    do the inplace upgrade to convert your key, then once it's activated, you are clear to do a clean install if needed
