  1. October 2020 Updates released on 10/13 KB4580382 monthly rollup (MS support article 4580382) KB4580353 security-only update (MS support article 4580353) no new Servicing Stack update was released - KB4566426 is still the latest SSU
  2. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/products/windows-10-home-and-pro https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/products/windows-10-enterprise-and-education five more years of Windows 10 support until October 2025 - by that time, Windows 10 will be put out of its misery for good does not bother me as apps like O&OShutup10 take care of that
  3. I don't think so. I'm using 20H2 on one of my PCs and M$ has NOT removed the classic control panel (appwiz.cpl) as I've tested this myself MS may plan to do this starting with the 2021 versions (aka. 21H1 or 21H2)
  4. it depends on which edition of Win10 you were using some of my old PCs running LTSB/LTSC editions of Win10 work just fine with using 3rd party apps like WinaeroTweaker & O&OShutup10 (and setting all my internet connections to "metered")
  5. not unless you can find a way to convert & compress the install.wim file into an install.esd
  6. a reminder that support for Office 2010 ends next Tuesday October 13, 2020 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/end-of-support-for-office-2010-3a3e45de-51ac-4944-b2ba-c2e415432789 https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/endofsupport/office-2010-end-support-roadmap
  7. that's ok Jody. I may provide some new Win8.0 updates from time to time though I may not always do it regularly --- for September 2020: KB4577038 monthly rollup (MS support article 4577038) KB4577048 security-only update (MS support article 4577048) both need at least the KB4566426 servicing stack update from mid-July 2020 before installing; no new W8 servicing stack updates were released yet
  8. I saw this poll on the ZDNet site asking why are users still using Windows 7. https://www.zdnet.com/article/poll-why-are-you-still-using-windows-7/ results of that poll are posted in this recent article: https://www.zdnet.com/article/poll-results-heres-why-people-are-sticking-with-windows-7/ what do you guys think?
  9. or OP can read the following topics in other forums: from Reboot.pro forum - Install Windows 7 at UEFI Graphics Output Protocol (GOP) hardware http://reboot.pro/topic/21108-install-windows-7-at-uefi-graphics-output-protocol-gop-hardware/ from MDL forum - UefiSeven: Easily boot Windows 7 on UEFI class 3 devices https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/uefiseven-easily-boot-windows-7-on-uefi-class-3-devices.82137/ note: Win7's default vga.sys driver only supports BIOS systems and hangs/freezes on pure UEFI (no CSM) systems; USB3 & 3rd party graphics drivers needed to be integrated onto Win7 usb install media if installing on PCs with modern UEFI chips
  10. that has been proven wrong with this app which I use regularly
  11. the LTSB/LTSC editions of Win10 seem to work well on my old PCs (2nd gen Intel core, AMD Socket AM3+ cpu & older based pcs) - at least those editions get 5 years of mainstream support & another 5 years of extended support for a total of 10 years. and I don't have to deal with having to install big win10 feature updates the non-LTSB/C editions get shorter support life spans depending on each Win10 release (see MS Windows Lifecycle Fact sheet)
  12. it appears the HP 790-0000i desktop PC only has Win10 X64 supported driver downloads as Win7 is an unsupported OS for the 790-0000i. I also suspect that desktop PC has UEFI and Win7 can only work with either CSM or "legacy" support (those options have to be access in UEFI/BIOS setup - read some of the manuals here, especially the "bios simulator" guide & user guide), before attempting to install & run Win7. Win7 won't run on "pure" UEFI mode & needs either CSM or legacy boot
  13. I recently saw this from abbodi in another forum: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Win101607EOS] "{053DEC44-5C18-418D-BC3A-7D0C1F6838E3}"="{368E1623-5A77-4893-8201-48096DEE4970}" "{B78F56A2-868B-44B2-A373-DF57A232D4BE}"="{16D54C04-4D80-496D-B3FA-937F0AAAEB37}" adding this reg key & their values may allow installation of new updates on any 1607 edition with KB4132216 & newer servicing stack updates (as if it were operating on intel clover trail cpus) no need to use modded or older wcp.dll files anymore edit 8/31 - aww crap (it was too good to be true), this reg hack doesn't work as recent cumulative updates like KB4565511 & KB4571694 still fail to install with "we couldn't complete the updates. undoing changes" message when attempting to install them on non-LTSB 1607 editions like Home/Pro/Education/Enterprise. the recent CUs only install successfully with LTSB 2016
  14. try using ipconfig /release first and then type ipconfig /renew for the TP-link adapter card. if no improvement, try updating the drivers for it. if that still does not work, try unplugging and re-plugging your internet modem/router device
  15. you might be better off doing one of the following: a. run v1607 on 7th gen Intel hardware like NUC7i3BNH (Kaby Lake - 1607 release officially supports up to Kaby Lake; 8th/9th gen or newer hardware [aka Coffee Lake] not supported nor guaranteed). OR b. run v1809 or LTSC 2019 on NUC10i3FNH (v1809 can run on 8th gen up to 10th gen Intel hardware) NUC10i3FNH is too "new" or recent to run on an old Win10 version like v1607 and only the LTSB 2016 edition of 1607 is still supported by MS
