    Well we are discussing reasons to get Windows 10 or not so we are on topic. Best you try and get copy of Windows 10 and try for yourself sah, cause we might tell you one thing and you get a different experience. It's like when Windows XP just came out and people were on Windows 2000 hesitating to switch to it and then when they finally did they are wondering why they never made the switch months ago. You have the option to roll back to previous Windows version so why not go for it?

    So yesterday there I am playing GTA V Online and then bam, had a powercut(stupid JPS) and UPS chipped in. Thing is UPS I have is an older one and planning to replace battery or get a new one as it only keeps charge for about 5 minutes or less while on full load.

    I have it set to hibernate when only 5 minutes left on battery as hibernation is the only option it has and I've read how hibernation is not good on SSD's, but last time this happened my system booted back up fine.

    Thing is I was in the process of exiting the game and shutting down before the 5 minutes but system started going into hibernation at that time and I saw my computer shutdown properly and about 5 minutes later UPS battery completely drained and shut off.

    About an hour later started booting up back system and right after the Windows 10 booting logo was about to disappear to bring up the welcome screen, that c000021a bluescreen error message came up and restarted computer. Every time I let it reboot and go to that part it does the same thing. Windows 10 recovery screen eventually came up and I tried booting into safe mode and got same issue and even did the wipe all apps and reinstall Windows 10 option and even that kept failing.

    So I was left with the final option of re-installing Windows completely. Now the thing is I had to use my Windows 7 disc and use that to delete SSD and was able to install Windows 7 successfully (which is the fastest time I've ever seen it install of about 10 minutes, yes roughly 10 minutes) and burn my Windows 10 image on a disk as I forgot to do that after doing the ISO upgrade.

    So I rebooted with the Windows 10 disc this time and went to install and it's saying I have to boot up Windows 7 first and do the upgrade from there . So I did that and then got prompt to activate Windows 7 before I can proceed with upgrade .

    So I did that and was able to get back into Windows 10, which is working again and moving even faster than before.

    Did anyone try the clean install and have to go through all that, or does the skip option work where they are asking for product key, or can use your Windows 7 key as well to get pass that screen and install the Windows 10 OS without needing Windows 7 installed? Want to know this for future reference.

    Nevermind I was able to find the answer a bit after posting. Here are instructions for those who don't know already:

    A note for upgraders - you DON'T have to upgrade first

    If you've got Windows 7 or Windows 8, you no longer have to upgrade to Windows 10 before performing a clean install. When Microsoft first released the OS, upgrading first was a required step, as this would register your computer with the Windows 10 licencing servers. This extra step was quite annoying, so we're glad that Microsoft has removed the requirement. Instead, the Windows 10 installation will now recognise valid Windows 7 and Windows 8 licence keys, automatically registering your computer with Microsoft. To do this, just follow the instructions below and make sure that you've created boot media using the latest version of Windows 10; your old installation discs will not accept Windows 7 or Windows 8 keys.

    So I was having an issue with the creators update where when I alt tabbed out of a game it would take a few seconds to refresh to my desktop instead of instantly as it normally does. Thankfully it's fixed with this update which you guys can get early and check out other features in this video:
