Another Win 10 problem


[link to this post]
 
Attempting to update a H.P 260 G1 Desktop Mini PC, I have downloaded all the Win 10 update files. On attempting the installation I receive a warning that there is not enough free space on the HD.

As it only has a 32GB SSD, can I utilise an external drive as temp. storage.

If I have to fit another HD, will it still update after the cut off date, which is of course tomorrow.

Do you have much in the way of your own files on there? If so it would be simplest to copy them off elsewhere to free up space. If you have downloaded a packaged installer for Win10 then you should be able to put that on a memory stick/external drive and install it from there freeing up the space the source media takes up.

You can still legitimately get FREE W10 install, ask if you need it, I send you a link.

What are "Assistive technologies"?

Thanks. (I wonder if the installation will actually check you have one?)
Narrator now supports six levels of verbosity for giving you more details about the characteristics of text. You can cycle through these modes by pressing CAPS LOCK + CTRL + (PLUS). For example, at what we call Verbose mode 0 (zero), you will hear just the text. At verbose mode 1, you might hear if the text is a heading. At verbose level 5 you will get a speech by Neil Kinnock.

No, you are eligible even if you're only just planning to use assistive technologies in the future.

I just tried this. It installs the full version including the Anniversary update.
