Got to it - something wrong with the win7 install - it does not see

Reinstalling win 7 pro - see what happens this time. It's an older
computer - with an AMD processor - so I'm not going to waste much time
on it. If it doesn't work this time I'll "bin" it.
As to "the built-in modem will not load", I suppose you mean the driver
for a "soft modem" that requires software.
As to activation, I'm wondering how much you actually lose by not having
W10 activated (other than that reminder).

If you don't activate it, you don't get update, etc. You could just
update w7 to W10, if it can't it'll put back every back to W7.
Modem? You use it for faxing or modem? All my desk top, laptops updated
to W10 without a hitch. I manually updated to have triboot(Linux, W7,
W10) I need W7 and IE to flash blade for remote starter kit. If you call
MS, no warm body answers, just follow thru accordig to the prerecorded
message, you better have good hearing and good typing speed or you'll
spend quite a while to finish the process.
Already done Tony. I like W7 more better, but I'm getting used to W10.
I like Edge over IE for sure. I use Chrome as well so IE doesn't get
used. I had an issue with email, but cured that by going with T-Bird.
All in all W10 gets the job done Ya Ya!
Some things I do such as flashing blade for remote starter, Only IE is
compatible. (Using iDATA link web link flash utility) Omega link,
Compustar link is same.) When I am not on Linux, I use W7 Ultimate 64
bit. I even have to play with DOS....
I have 2 W10 installations. One is an update from W8.1, and shows as
activated. The other is a clean installation that shows as not
activated. Both have been there since summer. There seems to be NO
difference in the updates available and installed on them.

I tried that with this Inspiron 660. I input the # from the MS tag on
the case, [which was originally W8] and no joy. I tried NOT inputting
the activation # and still no joy.
Why can't MS just do like they did with W95, W98, WME?
With the current atmosphere vis-a-vis Windows , Ubuntu is looking better
and better ... I wonder if they might be subtly sabotaging XP , seems odd
little quirks are popping up more and more often lately ...
Gotta win the wife over though for a change that big . GUI is pretty good
, but the "feel" is different .
