Thanks, will give it a try.

Have been trying to avoid reinstalling, but it'll give me an excuse to install a bigger SSD.

With a digital license (Windows 7 to 10 free upgrade), is it as simple as installing to a blank drive using the ISO download?

you can back the license up and tie it to an MS account.

you shouldn't need to do that though.

I've reinstalled Windows 10 on my main computer at home multiple times, onto different HDDs and it's just installed without entering a key. I did a free upgrade from 8.1.

It just activated on it's own after I logged in.

I don't doubt you. I'd prefer to have my license backed up anyway.

Backing up to someone else's computer is not backing it up at all: you become totally dependent on that other person's computer working when you need it to, and them letting you get it back when they deign fit to.
I'd far rather pull the license out of EFI using RWEverything and file it.

Yet still no fix for the lack of bluetooth connectivity that they broke with the creators edition update/screwup.

i don't understand what you're talking about "backing it up to someone else's computer".

you're backing up your license for the activation service.
you install, "skip key", sign in with your MS account, it looks on the activation service for your license, activation happens.

if you can't get to the activation service then having a copy of the key won't help.

power has made an important thread that needs to be included here.
http://forums.overclockers.com.au/sh...3#post17663863

Topic: Got Stuttering? Blame W10 Creators.

Gist: Win10 Creators update is causing a lot of stuttering during gaming for many users across many titles - MS was initially saying BS it is you - now with the numbers stacking up they are saying woopsie it is our fault.........
