Kerry, I wasn't trying to dispute you in any way. Thinking back, I did a clean install of Windows 7 and ran into driver issues for some older hardware. I ended up using the x86 version of Windows to help solve the problem and stayed with it moving to Windows 10. To work around the RAM limitations of the x86 version I use a RAM drive with about 12 gb of space. It works quite well and really speeds up the computer.
Overall, I think the upgrade to Windows 10 has been the easiest one I have done for any Windows version. It was much easier than doing a clean install. I also upgraded 2-3 other computers running Windows 7 and they were all equally trouble free.
