I certainly like 10 WAY more than i liked 8, but win 7 is clearly MSFT's great sequel to Win XP, as after 6 years of using it, i have a feeling that it'll take quite a fucking while before i fully upgrade from Win 7. It literally just werks!

People who downgrade often bricks their computer and need to reinstall everything from the beginning. The 'downgrade option' is a placebo.

Will W10 fuck my GRUB up if I'm installing it on another hard drive entirely?

>>52438596
By downgrading I mean I would do a clean install of Windows 7. I don't trust MS to do it right.

>>52438656
It didn't for me when I installed on a different partitions for C and D but I use GPT and UEFI. If you use mbr you would have to reinstall grub from a live cd which isn't too hard but isn't fun if you don't have a live cd ready.

you can disable automatic updates (might be restricted to the Enterprise edition of win10), but windows defender is pretty much permanently turned on. might be possible to spoof having a 3rd party AV, at which point windows defender would automatically deactivate itself.
>>
>>52430519
I love and hate 10. It's better than 8 and almost as good as 7. The forced big winter update deleted some of my shit and reinstalled some bloat which really pissed me off.

Following the trend of a lot of new Windows it's going to suck the first year of release and then become better as time goes on.

Are you retarded or something? 7600 is was perfectly usable. 7601 jusr a collection of updates.

It didn't surprisingly. I think this is because I used gpt/UEFI instead of mbr for both Debian and the Windows 7 install. It also kept my C and D configuration.

The great thing about UEFI is that there isn't only a single bootloader at a specific location on each disk that can be overwritten. It's basically just a file that can be placed on any volume. Adding a boot entry in the UEFI firmware telling it where the file is and to boot off it is as simple as using shit like EasyUEFI. Fuck you don't even need useless-assed GRUB. You can enable EFI stub support and built-in kernel command line when compiling the kernel, then add a UEFI boot entry pointing to the compiled kernel image. Shit is legit.

>The great thing about UEFI is that there isn't only a single bootloader at a specific location on each disk that can be overwritten.
This is what has drawn me to using UEFI. I also like GPT partition tables because it isn't limited like MBR partion tables.

>It's basically just a file that can be placed on any volume
I thought it had to be FAT32 partition, I haven't tried formatting my /boot/efi to anything else because I don't need to. I like how it can be anywhere on the disk though.

>Fuck you don't even need useless-assed GRUB

I will try this sometime but I do like GRUB because I am used to using it :P. I want to try a newer kernel as I haven't compiled my own in a while so I will try that then.

One thing I do have to note is that when I installed Windows 7 in UEFI mode it made the Windows Boot Manager the default option or overwritten my grub efi files. All II had to do was reinstall GRUB on my disk but that is still kind of irritating to do so I was pleasantly surprised when Windows 10 didn't overwrite grub and just modified the Windows EFI entry.

I will look into EasyUEFI thanks anon

Yeah, UEFI will only read fat32.
>One thing I do have to note is that when I installed Windows 7 in UEFI mode it made the Windows Boot Manager the default option or overwritten my grub efi files
It probably just made WBM the default option, I've never had it erase an entry. But Windows 7 EFI support is pretty basic compared to 8 and newer.
