    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    Well I won't be bothering with my iffy system. I'll fire up the old PC and see how that goes.

    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    You're just trying to depress me, aren't you? I would hope that after a fresh install into an empty partition that would not be required. I'll give it a go, though.

    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    I think I've given up on insider builds on my main machine.
    I cannot get an update to the latest build to install.


    I did a clean install to the insider partition - made no difference. Which...

    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    I think that is extremely unlikely given that:

    The other install that is multi-booted is fine and has just upgraded itself to 20H2
    My other much older and slower machine still installs...

    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    Happening here on the old machine. I'm not even going to try on the one that has been having problems.
    It is all very weird and frustrating. It will not install whatever I try. This is a multiboot...

    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    I took my courage in both hands and rebooted. It started the insider build OK and there was a message saying "there was a problem resetting your PC - no changes were made. So the good news is I don't...

    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    As far as I can remember it was from a general release to an insider.
    In any case it all seems to have turned to custard. I went out at about 1330 and it was just starting the reset. It had done a...

    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    Two attempts, two failures. The old slow machine is plodding along - 61% install before first restart.
    I wonder if it would work if I reset the problem machine. If I did that, what does it reset it...

    Christmas is coming - aaargh!

    I noticed in Farmers at the weekend that their Christmas shop is open.
  13. Re: Fibre is activated - but now I appear to have two phone lines!

    I think functionally they are the same. For historical reasons I won't bother you with all my wall receptacles are RJ45. Yours has an old BT plug to go into the wall and the other connectors as you...

    I think this is what I need - am I right?

    Re: NZHerald Bypass for Firefox fails to work

    Not working for me either - they obviously finally got round t plugging the hole.
  16. Re: Fibre is activated - but now I appear to have two phone lines!

    Thanks, I'll check that out.
  17. Re: Fibre is activated - but now I appear to have two phone lines!

    Thanks for all the responses. This is where I'm at at the moment:

    I have had a line from the router to one phone, and that all works fine
    Since lunchtime today, none of my other phones work -...
  18. Re: Fibre is activated - but now I appear to have two phone lines!

    I could buy more phones, but I don't want to do that unless I have to. I'm going to try the splitter first.
  19. Re: Fibre is activated - but now I appear to have two phone lines!

    That's good to know. Is there any thing special about the splitter, do you know? I have a very old one that has two sockets labelled Line and ADSL (shows how old it is!). Is that gong to work?

    Yes it is AMD, so you may be right. I've posted the feedback, so it will be interesting to see what sort of response there is.

    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    Nah, failed again. It's weird. It does the initial install, then "configures update for Windows 10", and reboots. I see the Windows logo as though it is going to proceed with the update, but then it...

    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    Yeah, right. I'll give it a go, being an incurable optimist.
  23. Re: Fibre is activated - but now I appear to have two phone lines!

    So when the copper gets disconnected, how do I get the other phones in the house to work again? My neighbour appears to have a splitter in the line from the router VOIP port where one line goes to a...
  24. Fibre is activated - but now I appear to have two phone lines!

    I connected everything up this morning and it is working fine. I have a phone plugged into the router, so that is using VOIP (I assume). However I have other phones on the house - not satellites of...
