I did perform an upgrade install, but none of the method that you have mentioned works for me. cry
I give up. I understand that I cannot bring Windows 8.1 back to my PC. So, I am trying to figure out how to speed up Windows 10. I have found some methods and they really boost the speed (apart from slow boot).

yes this is very odd ?
you said that you know your windows 8.1 DVD is good .
even if there was a BIOS issue , you should be able to open setup.exe .
image
with your windows 8.1 DVD in your DVD drive .
right/click on that drive and select open or explore .
which ever of those 2 options are available to you .
you should see that first image i posted .
if you can't open/explore your DVD ?
then what error or notice are you receiving ?
ok thank you .

next i un-install KMSpico >>>

i did a restart and checked my windows 10 activation >>>

still activated , nothing seems to have changed .
KMSpico activated windows 8.1 .
but it was Microsoft's servers that activated windows 10 .
ok thank you .

i've got a funny side-effect from deleting GWX ?
all my updates now say windows 10 >>>
image
when i select an update to be installed , the correct update is installed .
it's just that it says windows 10 every time .
other than that , updates are normal no real problem .
Well I tried Windows 10 for 3 days on my main system, I did run fast and is better on memory.
The problem is that my desktop kept crashing because Windows update kept forcing there AMD driver install.
Even after deleting AMD drivers and choosing Microsofts basic video driver as soon as I connected my network Windows update reinstalled amd driver and crashed the system over and over again.
Windows 10 forcing hardware updates is idiotic, I've had many systems that only worked well and stable with a certain revision of drivers.
Plus I use Windows mail and the idiots at MS decided to take out the select boxes and select all feature to move or delete emails.
So I used the recover back to 8.1 option and worked like a charm to bring back my system the way it was.


yes sorry to hear about that driver issue .
hopefully more users will complain to Microsoft .
and this forced update policy will change .
especially for drivers .
ok thank you .

I want to go back to Windows 8.1 But I can't do it, as a message appears "Something happened Setup has failed to determine supported install choices."

I have found the option. But it says, "We're sorry, but you can't go back."
I have started to get really scared! I seems that my PC will never get Windows 8.1 installed in it for the rest of its life!

I have used the same DVD to install Windows 8.1 a few days ago. So, it is absolutely in great condition.

first we need to determine if you actually did an upgrade install ?
are your windows 8.1 files/programs now installed in windows 10 .
is your windows 10 activated .
is your windows 8.1 administrator account now the administrator of windows 10 .
if you say yes then this should work >>>

Thanks


if that option isn't available to you ?
then don't boot from your windows 8.1 DVD .
instead while you are in windows 10 .
insert your DVD and open it as a folder .
find the file that says setup and run it .
it will ask you do you want to keep programs and files .
select the one that lets you keep everything .
then proceed with your windows 8.1 install .
after the install has completed .
any files that could not be transferred to windows 8.1 .
they will be found in a folder labeled - windows.old .
ok good luck .
