This was on my Home Theater PC. I store my movies on it and use it to stream video to my TV. When I updated to Windows 10, my BLURAY/DVD player/burner no longer appeared in my hardware. There was no drive showing for me to update. When I put a movie in, it did nothing. When I used VLC to play a disc, it was as though I didn't have a drive installed. My bios recognized the drive but Windows 10 did not. When I went back to Windows 7, all was well. Now the free update is no longer available, so I'm not gonna fiddle with it.
Then some one hacked CP/M binaries in complete ignorance and later MicroSoft aquired that crappage after they made a promise to IBM (where Bill's mommy worked). MeS-DoS can only run on PeeCees. Attempts to port it have failed. IBM tried on PowerPC, SGI tried on Visual Workstation and DEC tried on Alpha and all failed.
CP/M and PL/M are an OS for toy computers just as Unix and C are an OS for almost toy computers. Both were carefully designed and they were not accidents.
CP/M had the hooks for faster CPUs that MicroSoft never figured out how to use.
I had to borrow a copy of that pirated CP/M called MeS-DoS as crapola applications required it. I used to hammer WP 5.1 writing and maintainin ISO 9001 systems. I also purchased WP 5.2 for Unix. Used Lotus 123, but never Microsoft Excel.
PL/M sat well with real programmers who used PL/I on real computers.
Windows is just MeS-DoS (or NT) with a GDI. It is not an OS.

I contacted LG about my Blu-ray drive not showing up after I installed Win 10. They supposedly have a solution but I will need to reinstall 10 to try it out.
My question is, since I downloaded and installed 10 when it was still free, but went back to 7 because of my conflict, can I reinstall 10 freely or will it cost me? If its going to cost me, I'll just wait until a later time.
