I swear if I wake up one of these mornings with Windows 11 I'll be pissed.

I would be extremely angry if they pulled that on me. I certainly hope they don’t go down that road again.

You can turn off automatic updates.

Also the reason my Intel doesn’t get a backup is because it only has games on it and 9/10 games have cloud backups. Plus it only does mining 90% of the time.

But yes, I like to joke as well. :lol:

Don't remember them doing that. I do remember people crying because Windows Update would download the upgrade files and have them ready, so that if you did decide to upgrade, it could skip the GB download and make the process faster.

I think it was actually with Windows 7/8 machines automatically upgrading to Windows 10. I know because it happened on my mother-in-law's laptop.

Turned out if you had the "Give me recommended updates" setting enabled under Windows update it would eventually download AND install Windows 10 automatically.

I see you have a similar motherboard to what I have.

Is it worth it to upgrade to Windows 11 at this time?

Microsoft said I'm ready:bleh: .

Only reason I did it was to get auto HDR. Otherwise I'd say wait since KAC says there are issues.

Besides auto-HDR, which is very cool, and DirectStorage, which developers have yet to incorporate into any games that I'm aware of, there are no "must-have" benefits to Win 11. If Win 10 is working well for you, then I'd stick with it.

This.

I have an HDR monitor.

jimjobob Oct 29, 2021 10:44 AM

I have been leaving HDR on on windows 10 for the past couple years withought any issues. The desktop images look fine, games that support it work properly and games that don't work properly as well. The only thing with leaving it on is that SDR overlays while playing HDR games will be overly saturated. I had the issues of the overly saturated desktop and whatnot if left on initially but that has been fixed for quite some time now.

Then I'd do it, you can always go back to 10.

jimjobob Oct 29, 2021 03:07 PM

Maybe Iíll try it and see if thereís any improvement with the HDR. Is there any real downfall for gaming?

No. Well, not anymore. There was if you had an AMD CPU, but that's been fixed AFAIK. Games generally run as well as they did on Win10, because it basically IS Win10 with a new skin.

EDIT: Correction. Win11 is actually a step backwards in the UI department. Win10 had a much more configurable taskbar, Start menu, and better right-click menus. I don't know WTF Microsoft was thinking with those changes. Has nothing to do with gaming, but I had to install 3rd Party apps and make registry changes to bring back the old functionality of the desktop and Start menu.

Nascar24 Oct 29, 2021 07:58 PM

Definitely is some stupid changes to the right click menus, things I used all the time no longer there.

Not that I can tell but some here report games are crashing for them.

Here you go.

I'll be grabbing a backup drive sometime this week so I can do a proper backup and move to 11. I'm not expecting any issues as a friend here has the same exact laptop and has had no issues.

Time to get it done.

I just jumped onto Windows 11 and found a bit of an issue with the State Repository Service - it goes absolutely berserk and uses all remaining CPU resources. I tried using SFC in the command prompt (SFC /SCANNOW) which kinda-sorta helped but didn't. It found errors, and now instead of permanently going crazy until I restart the service, it sorts itself out after a couple minutes or so.

It's apparently a known issue, but I only really run into it under very specific circumstances. If I start streaming music, then start Winamp, then set Winamp to use the line-in input, and then start the Milkdrop 2 visualizer to display on my secondary monitor, then it freaks out. It doesn't seem to matter which video card the secondary monitor is plugged into.

Otherwise, the new version of Windows seems pretty solid, at least for me.

I finally upgraded my last computer to Windows 11, it is an old X99 with a Haswell-E processor. This computer does not have a TPM (1.2 or 2.0) and had to jump through a couple more loops to install it, wanted to get the module (the MB supports it) but they do not exist on the Internet anymore...

So far is running great, quite a capable machine and extremely fast. I installed a NVME drive on it prior the upgrade as well.

In summary, I upgraded 6 machines at home (3 compliant and 3 non-compliant), security updates are coming through Windows Update no issues.
