  1. Hi Button! Sorry for the delay to your question! I'm not familiar with iphone. Be patient and maybe others will reply latter! See if this helps any and welcome to groovypost! holdum333 http://www.groovypost.com/howto/connect ... azon-echo/
  2. To get that classic F8 behavior back we need to restore the legacy boot menu policy. To do this, hit the Win + X keyboard combination and launch and elevated command prompt. When the command prompt opens, run the following: bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy That’s really all there is to it. Now, when your computer boots up, you can mash the F8 key to view the classic Advanced Boot Options. If you want to return the boot menu back to normal, you can use this command: bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy standard
  3. Hi I like to keep a close watch on my Hitachi hard drive. I realize that it could go bad at any time, but I always have a current back up image of my OS. I like Macrium Reflect, but there are several good free image programs out there. Here's some tests I just ran on my Hitachi hard drive. Going on the 5th year. I never use sleep or hiberate. It's either on or off and seldom is it off. I use WD and seagate programs to test it. You will hear lots of recommendations about leaving your PC on or shutting it off. I'm not going to get into that discussion on this post. Here's my test results! Here's a lot of good Hard drive information here on groovey. http://www.groovypost.com/customsearch/ ... 5514876j16
  4. Hi! I'm bored! Was wondering how your up grade was going. Here's a excellent tutorial from groovypost that might help. I would love to hear if you have had any success! Good stuff to look for if you're still having problems! Thanks! http://www.groovypost.com/howto/10-thin ... indows-10/
  5. Hi Teekay! Sense you have not responded yet, I thought I would add this link, AskLeo about the requirements to upgrade to W10. I hope this helps. Would also like to hear from you. We can try other things if your issue is not solved. Please be advised that not all makes and models will qualify for this free up grade. It is advised that you check with your manufacture to see if your PC will meet the requirements needed for this free up grade. Thank you! https://askleo.com/how-can-i-tell-if-my ... indows-10/ Here's some great advise. I hope you are still watching this thread! If you really want to upgrade, or you have a reason to upgrade, there is a perfectly safe way to do it; unfortunately, not that many people seem to use it. Take an image backup of your machine. Upgrade or install Windows 10. Success? Carry on – Windows 10 works for you! Failure? Restore the backup image you took before you upgraded or installed. Carry on – Windows 10’s not ready for your machine (or vice versa). Seriously, it really is that simple. It’s one of the reasons I talk so much about backup programs and image backups specifically. An image backup is like freezing your machine in time, so you can always go back to the way it was before the upgrade.3 To be completely practical, it appears that the only way to be 100% certain that Windows 10 will, or will not, work on your machine is to try it out, and revert if it doesn’t. An image backup is how you do it safely.
  6. Hi I have not heard of that. What media are you using to upgrade to W10?? Have you tried the Media Creation Tool? Also see my screen shot! https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softwar ... windows10/
