I have tried to use my Recovery thumb drive to do a Reset to a new SSD and could not get it to work. All I got was "a required partition is missing" even after partitioning the drive. It was a hopeless waste of time. I'm not saying it can't be done, it just may end up being a complicated process and require some skill. I ran out of patience.
    Ah, it seems we live and learn . . . I didn't read the site all that closely, so I'm not sure either.

    If this is a portent of things to come, then I'm not sure I want to continue with Windows and this may be my last upgrade/downgrade (as you see it). When I'm controlled to the nth degree, I tend to get upset, pick up my toys and go home. At this point unless something changes drastically, Microsoft has gotten its last dime from me.

    Well, I guess I'm out of stuff then. I got this from over on the non-sleep thread and hoped it would work. Guess not.

    Yeah, It doesn't become obvious until you click though all the links and see where you end up at. Its to bad too, that OEM keys are blocked. Those are the people that need the ISO the most.
