    Clean install with Win10 Fall Update

    I didn't even need the drivers. After installing Win10 (Threshold 2) all I needed was the Oct firmware update and everything showed up. My SP3 is running better than ever and I think I recouped HDD space.

    Clean install with Win10 Fall Update

    To prep for a clean install I've put together what I think are the required steps. Can someone please validate them. 1. Back everything up. 2. Tomorrow when Win 10 Fall update is released create Win 10 USB media from: Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool - Windows Help 3...

    Persistent issues with SP3 and Win 10

    Ok, I got it. The great KMS server in the cloud is going to pick up my activation.

    Persistent issues with SP3 and Win 10

    I agree with your assessment. I'm going to attempt a clean install when Threshold 2 releases next week. It's a little dicey regarding how to activate the license after a clean install. So far no one has a clear answer. But my SP3 is still under the complete care warranty so I'm thinking the...

    Clean install with Win10 Fall Update

    Funny enough I asked the author of that very article before I came here and he didn't know either. I think a firmware key is built into the machine but it would be nice to confirm.

    Clean install with Win10 Fall Update

    Next week is the supposed release of the Win10 fall update (Threshold 2). It's my understanding this includes an improved method for clean installs. My SP3 has acted quirky for while so I'm thinking a clean install might fix it up. Is there any resources on how to go about this processes...

    I'm pretty sure Apple won't care as long as it passes there software review test.

    Day 2 with SB - Uh Oh

    True, but it's frustrating because these issues have always plagued Windows. The excuse in the past has been the hardware vendor aren't in perfect sync with Microsoft. However that excuse doesn't fly with Surface products since Microsoft is controlling both ends. Hopefully feedback will...

    Day 2 with SB - Uh Oh

    Your probably correct and it's sad that even Microsoft can't get the drivers right on their own hardware.

    Persistent issues with SP3 and Win 10

    At this point I haven't done much. I didn't know if these are common Win10 issues or just issues I'm experiencing. My plan is to fully backup my systems and do a fresh Win 10 install once Threshold is released in a couple weeks. I'll probably also open up a ticket with Surface support since...

    10/26 firmware inbound

    Actually it's more about wifi issues in general with a focus is on Apple devices. Surface has gotten beaten up for wifi issues. Especially the Marvel chipset. This article highlights some of the greater issues.

    Will you go MS all the way to phone if you already have surface book?

    Not a chance. I'm way to much of an app addict to go with Windows phone. To bad because the OS is pretty nice but hardware is so so and the app selection is horrendous.

    Text on SP3 is too small

    Sadly there's no good fix for this issue. Many legacy applications do not natively support HD+ screens.

    Persistent issues with SP3 and Win 10

    Three months since I updated to Win 10 on my Sp3 (i5, 8GB, 256 GB) and I'll still seeing a lot of persistent issues. I wanted to see of other users are experiencing similar issues. Hangs during a system reboot and I have to do a hard shutdown. After a fresh boot-up Bluetooth is disabled and I...

    Surface Book is Actually 3 Times Faster than the MacBook Pro (in GPU benchmarks)

    Boot Camp drivers are total crap. I've had multiple Microsoft people tell me the best Windows machine is a Mac with Windows installed on it. I just look at them with glassy eyes.

    Surface Book is Actually 3 Times Faster than the MacBook Pro (in GPU benchmarks)

    I read that article. I like how well the Surface Book did however he should have listed the pricing to be fair. It's a $1500 MacBook Pro versus a $1900 Surface Book pro or did I miss something?
