I have an X220 - core i5 2540M, mb 4291F29, 2x4mb samsung 1600mhz ram, 256gb adata msata running win10 with 500gb 7200rpm HGST data disk.
I did the free upgrade to win10 pro from win7 ultimate about 12 months ago; all went well bar a couple of hassles with drivers (mainly the ricoh card reader) and I have been pleased with performance etc. Until now, all the proferred upgrades have gone well too, and I have tried hard to grasp all the myriad of privacy settings to keep MS' intrusions into my computing experience to a minimum. Feeling at a loose end this week, I decided to do the Anniversary edition upgrade, and spent the next day and a half wondering what had happened to my tatty looking but snappy performing little laptop. At first I wondered if it was a Mozilla incompatability as firefox and thunderbird were both running slow and hanging lots. But actually, it was the whole shebang - file explorer was the same, as was attempting to install programmes - I had a go at Classic Shell as the start menu in Anniversary is not to my liking. Other frustrations followed and eventually I gave up and rolled back to version 1511. At least that went well, all my settings etc returned.
Anyone else tried it/having hassles? I'm not about to try again until I see how others are going with it
I did the version 1607 Update to my X301 , a T43 and an Asus laptop and things have gone very smoothly.
Although I downloaded the one ISO for 32 bit and 64 bit from the Media Creation Tool and then installed to USB using Rufus.
I predominantly did it this way because I have about eight computers to upgrade but I think it is probably the best way to do the upgrade.
Keep in mind you can't put off the upgrade forever and even if you have "Defer Updates" set in Windows 10 that will only defer things for 4 months.
Besides that I think this will be an annual occurrence these major updates / upgrades.
Bit of a PITA but that is Microsoft
X301 SU9400 IDA Mod - W 7 / X201 540M - W 7 / X220 2520 - W7
X61 T7500 / T43's / T42
Rogue daily driver - Samsung RV511 15.6 " Screen - W 7
However updated my X1C 1st generation and that has been stable and fine.
Waiting for a fix here.
On the T60's and the Ideapad there is still no progress, and I have chosen not to press the issue but rather just wait till it arrives automatically in view of the many reports of difficulties.
I suspect that MS could be slowing the updates till fixes for the reported problems have been found.
T440 20B7S0HN00 - before this T60's fan with 3 in the family (daughter, son-in-law), T60p for one grandchild and an Ideapad U330 Touch for one more grandchild. All now running Win10 - no issues
