OMG !!! What have I done ?

I read an article on LinkedIn, a couple of months ago, that said cats are always sizing ppl up, trying to figure out a way to kill them, but we're too big, so they just glare at us... like that pic.

This is turning into a nightmare !   >:(

You know, I was just thinking ...

I hope the winders 10 version supports UEFI/Secure Boot, like Peppermint.

This winders 7 supported UEFI but not Secure Boot.  Plus it needed to have the legacy ROMs turned on -- sort of ghetto ...

Hopefully, winders 10 runs in the same secure mode as Peppermint.

It does...   I tested it last September with the UEFI Peppermint Re-spin

You will, however, have to amend efimanager to make Peppermint 1st boot again

~ cool

76% now.  I was reading the fine print, and it said the 1st step in the upgrade process was to download a 3 GB file.  Sounds like an .iso download to me.

Upgrade to 10 .. then use Linux (or one of the many free key extractors) to extract the Win10 product key and write it down.

Then once you have the win10 product key you can roll back to 7, with the option to clean install 10 free forever.
(it's obtaining the Win10 product key extracted from the BIOS that's the important thing)

Oh, and then leave this forum immediately and hand in your uniform on the way out :))

You should indeed feel very very dirty!  :D

At least have the decency to install it as a VM (and use the Enterprise version)!  :P

Bwahahahahaha !!! Typical winders  :D

The winders 10 upgrade was exciting as watching paint dry on a wall, and I fell asleep at 93% complete.

When I awoke, this morning, it was still at 99% complete - and dead in the water.

That's what I get for hanging with hookers ...

EDIT

Evidently, very typical ...

Heh!  This is a trip down memory lane.  LoL !   :D

Turned out, the registry had some corrupt entries.  Some were fixable, some weren't, but  the fixes I made got the updater working again.

Actually, it was probably a good thing, because once I got the process going again, it required several reboots -- and grub, of course, would have booted into Peppermint 7.

I got UEFI/Secure Boot working in winders 10, just like Peppermint 7, so now I don't need to mess around in BIOS any more. 

Once I did that, winders found my nVidia GT 710 drivers, so no more 'potato' letters.

Gawd, I wonder how the average winders dweeb would handle this upgrade  :-\

Anyway, back to business as usual.  Man, I wish I would have saved all the changes I made to my Conky script, before wiping the SSD.

Oh, well, it's fresh in my mind -- and, I wanted to upgrade it to Conky 10 anyway -- so, no harm, no foul.

I must say, this is a HUGE improvement over winders 7 ...
