  1. Just to be clear and I'm sure you're aware of that, running Windows 7 and Windows 10 in dual boot with the same key is illegal. Since the latest Windows 10's November update (1909), Microsoft has changed its Win 10 installer to accept Windows 7 and 8, 8.1 keys. Because of this change you are allowed to do a clean boot of Windows 10 2019 November update and use your Win 7, 8 or 8.1 keys. After using the Windows 7 key, Windows 10 will report this key to Microsoft’s servers, and you'll receive a digital entitlement or digital license to continue using Windows 10 for free. With all this said, if you create a dual boot with Window 10 1909, you'll be able to use and activate it with Windows 7 key and I seriously doubt that your Windows 7 will then be deactivated, but I just can't confirm this since I haven't tried it.
  2. According to Microsoft answers you'll be able to use the Win7 key even after you upgrade to Windows 10. Your Windows 7 license will always be valid and will not be changed or deactivated because of the upgrade to Windows 10: you'll be able to install or restore Windows 7 again in case you'll need to do that (provided that you've the Windows 7 installation DVD) https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/insider_wintp-insider_update/windows-10-insider-update/106f3930-d92c-4e58-97be-ed8a7228b3c6 Br, Nik
  3. Have you tried to remove all USB peripherals from the system prior to booting?
  4. Well, it could be nice if you'd be able to acquire another memory stick and try it on your MBO. If that won't help, it's a MBO for sure.

    Hi Krinal, welcome to Wincert!
  6. Hi, after reading your post and the things you've done I'd say it's either a MBO fault or a RAM issue. Have you tried to clean the RAM slots with compressed air and also to clean the RAM connectors with a school rubber? After this you might try to move the RAM module to another memory slot. If that doesn't help I would say that it most definitely is the motherboard issue although this answer might not be a satisfying one .
  7. This laptop is part of Active Directory domain?
  8. Considering you have purchased an ultimate Windows 7 version and If you have a valid license key you should be able to download it from here: https://www.microsoft.com/hr-hr/software-download/windows7 Br, Nik
  9. Done, it should be OK now. Br, Nik
  10. I just can't believe that even though Edge is in Beta stage, favorites are not syncing properly on it. I have switched and currently testing the Brave browser.
  11. I'm interested, why DVD, when there is so many cheap USB thumb drives on the market? I have also used Nero in the past and it was the best application for that purpose. You can also try the free ISO burner.
  12. Thanks, I just can't get used to Bing results, as they appear as crippled Google results. I might try DuckDuckGo again
  13. SnowBall, do you maybe know how can I change the default search provider which is bing, once I start typing in the URL bar? Thanks!
  14. How did you download iso? What is your default downloads location?
  15. Well, both links are from *microsoft.com so they should be safe, although Microsoft has obviously removed access to latest media creation tool.
  16. Already?? I might do another fresh install, considering I have some AMD driver issues with the current Windows 10 installation. This tool also downloads the Professional version, right? BTW, the first link is dead.
  17. Me neither, but those are conditions of the RarLab company.
  18. Hey, I have just found a culprit for my problem Check the note below BR, Nik
  19. Yeah, I have received my mail yesterday and have installed it. I have noticed that MEGA versions are not updating automatically. This official build does update My first impression is that it is working faster than the Google Chrome browser, although sync is still not working properly. At home PC I have installed Microsoft Edge and have imported everything from Google Chrome, including passwords, bookmarks, history, etc. Now, I have installed Microsoft Edge at work and I have selected to use it from scratch instead of importing data from Google Chrome. Once I have logged in with my Microsoft account I was able to sync the data from my PC@home, but as I can see Edge has synced my bookmarks and history from home PC, but not the passwords. Maybe I did something wrong or it just could be an early beta issue. So far I really like it
  20. Please try with another browser or disable any adblockers that you might have. BR, Nik
  21. Hey SnowBall, are these links safe? Who did upload these files? Can we check file hashes somehow? BR, Nik
  22. Thanks for this opportunity. So it is free for use for the first year only? Br, nik
