    I do not recommend that you do a full installation of windows 10 with the iso of microsoft, because the notebook has a hidden recovery partition from Acer, which allows you to reinstall the original factory windows! In addition, you will lose the software warranty!

    Ok thanks. Do you know of any problems this new version of Windows will cause with this laptop?

    I still do not know about the problems that this version of windows has! However, I suggest you wait for Microsoft to release the official version through windows update. I also suggest that you back up all your files before upgrading!

    Ok thanks. I stay backed up thru the cloud. I think i will postpone the update for couple of months to see what happens.

    When Microsoft released version 1809, some users had their files deleted. It's important to upgrade only when the version is really stable!

    Personally, stick to 1803 or 1809. I read through 1903 changes this morning and didn't feel anything of importance, atleast personally. It has a bunch of services to help MS, and some changes on lines of cosmetic changes, atleast based on the info available until now.
    Also, given the history of *yucky* MS updates on 10, I would strongly suggest waiting atleast 60 days after release of any feature update.
