Since then, we?ve been working with Xbox Insiders to gather feedback, test and refine tons of new features that we?re releasing worldwide starting today. Keep reading for some of the highlights, and head over to Xbox Wire for much more!
You can personalize your ?Home? more than ever before.

I have had my Dell 8700 for little over a year and have had problems from the beginning.  I am 72 years old, and I am at my wits end!!!

A hard drive was replaced in the summer of 2015, but I have still had problems with the computer shutting down and my having to refresh it to factory setting.

I thought updating to Windows 10 would solve some problems, and I did this in October, 2015.  Everything was fine until a couple of months ago.  The end result was when I tried to refresh the computer to factory defaults, it went back to 8.0 or 8.1, and I evidently lost something in the process.
Now, I cannot update to Windows 10 and when I tried to resinstall the Dell Operating System, I get for both:  "WE COULDN'T UPDATE THE SYSTEM RESERVED PARTITION."
I DO HAVE A SYSTEM BACKUP ON 20 CDS (MADE WHEN I HAD WINDOWS 10).  Could I reinstall the system with these backupdisks?  How do I do that?  I also have a Dell 2 Boot USP stick, I have a recovery stick, too, but it semed that when I used this, I received a message that not all files were recovered
What should I do at this point? 

Answer:Error message when trying to update to Windows 10 or to reinstall operating system 8.1: We couldn't update the system reserved partition."

On MBR disk, Windows 10 requires a 500MB system reserved partition, while 100MB in Windows 7, so you can try to extend system reserved partition.
In disk management, you can only extend partition using the unallocated space next to its right side. so even if you shrink D: drive, the option to extend the efi partition is still grayed out. My suggestion is to use a third party software, AOMEI Partition Assistant, both the standard (free) or the Professional(paid) version can extend partition as long as there is unallocated space on that hard drive. to see more information read:

ok so here's the deal,my birthday is coming soon and i really don't know what to choose.xbox one is perfect,it has better controller and headset.the ps4 has better hardware?!so what?games can be optimized and xbox one is getting more frame rate than ps4(example:cod advanced warfare, ac unity,etc)and it has skype so i can chat with my friends.do you know how i know that the controller is better on xbox?because i actually printed out a xbox one controller model and ps4 controller model and it feels better.on ps4 it feels like i have to reach for buttons I DONT WANT XBOX BECAUSE OF THAT STUPID REGION AND IP LOCK ON XB LIVE so whaat should i choose? plz help

Answer:Which system should I get the Xbox one vs PS4?

If your problems boil down to region and IP locking, I think the PS4 is the obvious choice here.
Then again, if you think the XB1 is better in every other way, and you really don't care about having a few pixels less than other platforms on your games, go ahead! Get the XB1!
I have to ask where you live, though.

So I ran a check for updates tonight (I always do mine manually) and after cycling for a while it finds an Xbox app update. I install it, only problem is the update keeps getting offered again and again no matter how many times I install it. As it happens on both our machines I am inclined to think it's an issue at MS end. But wondered if others see the same? It's as if Windows store detects a new version is out there but when one installs the update it just downloads the order version

Answer:Xbox app update keeps getting offered again and again

I'm not seeing any prompt but mine shows Modified minutes ago and version 24.27.17008.0. I did click the Check for updates in the Store but nothing appeared to happen. I let windows update run automatically so I never see prompts for app updates.

I used to be able to search everything all at once. Say for example, go to the search box and type star wars. It would bring up all sorts of results, web, games, movies, etc... Then if I chose a movie, it would take me to a page for that movie where I could select which provider to see the movie, Xbox movies, Netflix, Hulu, etc... Now I don't see that. Please don't tell me it is the Cortana search. Nothing in those results shows what app I may use to watch it on, just web results. Am I missing the search somewhere?

Answer:XBOX Music Has Disappeared After 11/17 Update

You can reinstall it this way:
Open up Store, right click, click on Your Apps. Change "Apps not installed on this PC" to "All Apps". Select "Music" and click Install on the bottom bar.
This will reinstall the application. Good luck! If you continues to have strange issues like this, you may want to refresh your PC.

I've hook the HDMI into the HDMI IN port on the back and I have picture and sound. The problem is that the sound is very loud and I don't know how to change the volume. I also plugged a pair of headphones into the side of the monitor attemping to use those to lower the volume, but I get no sound of them. I'm assuming that audio port is only for the PC portion.

Hi guys, wondering if anyone could help with this.
I'm using a UK 1020, running consumer 8.1 with Cyan (no DP) and my Xbox Music app was updated automatically this morning to the latest version.
Since that update, I have found that when I open the app, it will function for around 10 seconds before crashing. Weirdly, the music will keep going, but when I reopen the app, it won't resume, opting instead to start up all over again (with the music still going, with no interruption). This will happen regardless of where I am in the app.
Whilst I can still listen to music, it's an absolute nightmare controlling the app like this and I was wondering if anyone has had this, either since the recent update or previously with other updates. I presume (well, hope would be a better word) the app will revert to it's previous non-crashing state with the next update, whenever that is, but if anyone has any fixes for this, I'd be very, very grateful.
Thanks for any help!

Answer:Xbox Music crashing after recent update?

So i bought a new one which again was a Sandisk SDCard but with 16Gigs of Storage capacity and was a Class 10..
I shifted/moved my all the stuff from old sdcard to new sdcard....So then i played some music tracks for a test...
After listening 2 to 3 songs the app worked fine...then i changed the tracked(next track)...as soon as i tapped the next track option the app got
crashed but the song was playing all fine...i thought it was some another bug(Microsoft -_-) problem but no the app won't start now i managed
to stop the song by using upper dock which appears after playing anysong..
I was totally pissed off by now When i hit the shuffle button at the bottom of the app it again crashed :( and is still crashing...

Hey, great news everyone, Microsoft's Xbox 360 dashboard update is ready to download. But wait, it gets better! Not only does the dashboard update overhaul the entire Xbox 360 experience and usher in an era of voice controlled navigation, but Microsoft went the extra mile by adding a clause to the Terms of Service (ToS) stripping you of the hassle of being able to file a class action lawsuit, should you ever feel compelled! No siree, if you have an issue, you can sidestep legal action by "filling out a simple Notice of Dispute form" and mailing it in, and Microsoft will then work to resolve the dispute to your "satisfaction within 60 days." Isn't that swell?

I share an internet connection with my neighbor. I have a host-client setup. The host router is a buffalo using WPA security. A wireless client bridge is established between the host router and another buffalo flashed with DD-WRT Firmware v23.SP2. My neighbor has his XBox connected to the host router, mine is connected to the client router.
Everything works fine. I can share media between PC's anywhere on the network and either XBox, and both XBoxes can connect to XBox Live with Open NAT. The only thing that doesn't work, and has been frustrating me for two days, is a System Link between the two XBoxes.

Some background info from my attempts so far:
-Pinging a computer behind the client from a computer connected to the host does not work.
-Many forums have suggested Cloning the XBox MAC to the Router. When I do this, the XBox cannot acquire an IP from the host.
-I have tried every manner of static IP, DMZ, port forwarding - no go.

I can see it under System Settings - Xbox Networking.
Can it be switched off?
Note: that I have used an elevated Windows Powershell Window to run the

Get-AppxPackage *xbox* | Remove-AppxPackage

command, but it fails, basically telling me that it 'thinks that maybe it can't be done'.(??)

Any ideas? I will never own an Xbox and can do without unwanted services running on my PC.

Answer:Xbox Live Service in Fall Creators Update - How to Switch it Off?

Hey jameswesthead,
Go to Services (search > type services > click on services) and check to see if any of the Xbox Services are running (stop them if they are) and make sure their startup is set to manual.

Note: Some of the Xbox stuff is baked into Windows 10 and can't be removed, but you should be able to remove the Xbox Apps.

My friend gave me this xbox around one year ago, I know he is a fan of pawn shops but I'm not sure if he bought it from one, I only know that it was bought used.

It is an original Xbox 360 console, Halo edition, warranty expired : Dec 5, 2008

PAST ISSUE(S)

My first problem (now solved) was 2 red rings of death (overheating) since the first time I tried doing anything with it. Took it to a guy's house who fixed it, was recently told by a game store (FX Game Exchange) associate that he probably fixed it... I forgot what the method is called, but he said that method is not a long lasting or forever fix.
TODAY'S ISSUE(S)

(1) I get an error message when I test my Xbox Live connection. Everything connects perfectly except for xbox live particularly. I sign in fine, it is the connection. I tried one suggestion of configuring the network (I have a wireless adapter, bought used but works perfectly), and restoring settings on the wireless network. I've also cleared my system cache and made more space on my hard drive. I only have GTA V, YouTube, and Netflix on there now. I think there's like 4 GB of free space. I was on the phone with Microsoft about this issue for an hour until they blamed my hard drive. I could have missed something in my explanation of the problem to the support person, I'm not sure. The test fails between Internet and Xbox Live on the list of connections that must be tested.

Since the advent of consoles, developers have asked for ways to create games for one platform that you could run anywhere. With the release of the Expanded Resources feature in the Windows Fall Creators Update, we are taking the industry closer to that goal than it has ever been before. Now, developers will automatically have access to 6 exclusive cores, 5 GB of ram and full access to the GPU!

When Windows 10 launched in July 2015, Windows and Xbox converged to a single operating system for game development and introduced the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) application model.

UWP apps created for Windows 10 PCs and Xbox games created for Xbox One could be bought and run side by side on consoles, but only in a specialized environment created for lightweight entertainment experiences.

Coming this fall, UWP games published through the Windows Store to Xbox One consoles such as Fallout Shelter by Bethesda Softworks, games in the [email protected] program, or games in the Xbox Live Creators Program will be able to access the expanded resources. UWP game developers get both a performance boost and a much larger sandbox in which to Dream, Build, and Play.

Team Xbox is excited to see how creators take advantage of this extra power to bring even more variety and creativity to Xbox One. ANYONE can become a creator for Xbox One, get started here.

*D3D12-Based UWP Games get access to the full power of the GPU​

I recently moved to windows from android (hence the avatar), when I first got onto my new windows tablet I made a xbox account in the games app, I then logged into the same account on an xbox one. I changed my gamerpic and added a friend on the xbox but when I went to my tablet my friend list and gamerpic hadn't synced to the tablet. Originally I thought nothing off it until I noticed that my new friend list and gamerpic had synced to the xbox.com site (but still not the tablet), and that achievements I'd unlocked in various games on my tablet hadn't synced to the xbox.xom site, or the xbox (though they showed up on the games app).
Is there anyway to make it so all of the separate parts will sync together? I did bing it but I couldn't find any a working answers.

360 isn't backwards compatible with Xbox games. Since you have digital copies of the game, we can't be sure you actually own a legit copy. So, we can't help you sorry.

But, you can use this to format external drive for your 360.

When using the Netflix app on XboxOne I can not scroll using the remote from within the Xbox app on my Surface 3 or the Lumia 950XL.
Same applies to the Smartglass remote.
Scrolling in all other apps and the console itself works fine and I have not experienced any connection problems.
Tried using Smartglass on a Galaxy S7 and scrolling on Netflix works no problem.
Does anyone know about this issue ?

hello, i hope someone can help me as i have spent countless hours browsing the web and different forums for an answer, so i am finally posting somewhere hoping someone can help me directly.

i have a laptop connected to my neighbors xfinity wifi hotspot, using my uncles login information. i have a steady 4 bar connection and am able to access the internet, the connection is not the problem. i have an ethernet cable connecting my xbox and laptop and i am using Internet Connection Sharing to get access to xbox live, this works however i am losing connection ALOT and it is very frustrating trying to play multiplayer with my friends. i am guessing that ICS is not as reliable as Bridging the two connections.

i can successfully create the bridge and can still access the internet on the laptop, but cannot connect to xbox live. while running the test to connect i can get it to connect to the network by entering the information manualy, but then it fails to connect to the internet due to 'the dns servers cannot resolve xbox live server names'

please help and i will be happy to provide more information if needed.

Its been awhile since i posted in forums, but recently i just bought the Xbox one and i been messing around getting to know the console and after playing for a few weeks i just feel like i need a headset to be able to communicate with my friends. So i have these Trittons 720 + 7.1 and i use the optical for sound while using HDMI for video. Like on the Xbox 360 i plug it in onto the Xbox one just to see if the game sound works and it does, but Ive been straining searching online to see if my headset is compatible with the Xbox one adapter which i only intend to use for chat. I know one of the functions it has is your able to switch between game and audio on the adapter but i rather much do just that for game sound on the headset in wire. But i cant seem to make a decision to buy the Xbox one adapter brand new that comes with a 2.5 female to 3.5mm male cable or do i need to buy the adapter from Trittons itself? They do offer an Xbox one adapter for Trittons headsets but it lists compatible Trittons and mine wasn't among them.. So yeah i have second guesses here and i need to make a decision but at the same time save money from buying another headset for another console, when deep down i know in all this theres a way to make this work somehow as im well taught in anything electronics or cable related, ect. im a fast learner and any help would be appreciated.

Modified Xbox Consoles Banned From Xbox Live
(November 11 & 12, 2009)

In an attempt to combat piracy, Microsoft is permanently banning modified Xbox consoles from accessing Xbox Live. The ban also applies to gamers who have played games downloaded in violation of copyright laws. The ban will affect between 600,000 and one million players.

Users can recover their online profiles if they purchase another console. The plan raises concerns because it is the console rather than the player that is banned, so the people who purchase the devices second hand could find themselves unable to access Xbox live.

They are not trying to connect to YOUR Xbox but to Xbox online service to keep and retrieve game specific data.

Thanks
 

Answer:xbox live question (laptop to xbox)

Are you just looking for an answer? The answer is yes, of course you can.

Although if you mean can you hookup your xbox to your laptop in order to use the laptops wireless NIC to get onto live then, the answer is a little diffrent. I mean you still could do that, but you'd have to have a way to plug the xbox into the laptop. Like a second NIC in the laptop. Then you'd have to configure ICS, which could get to be annoying and may cause lag with Live.
