People **** on Vista all the time, but the kernel and general improvements it brought were awesome. Microsoft will do this update every six months, this is not a secret. And it is a good thing IMO. I have had multiple systems that had no issue with upgrading, and I hope that with the next big one the upgrade process will be even smoother. As for my self, I have a triple disk setup (OS/User Files, Games/Downloads,Backup), and I backup my whole AppData/ProgramData, so whenever these come out I do a fresh install and I'm done.

The other day, I had to try and fix a startup file which wouldn't fix for windows 10. I didn't have a USB copy of windows 10, or a disk so couldn't run any config tools as even the UEFI was borked. I had to reinstall windows 8, upgrade to windows 8.1, do all of the updates, then upgrade to windows 10, and of course do all of the upgrades for that, too. It took a very long time, but once done, I ordered a 32GB Toshiba USB stick and installed a boot copy of windows 10 for the future. You never think it's gonna happen to you, but then, from nowhere, your friday night is ruined. FTTH FTW.

Download a Win 10 iso and create a bootable usb with it using rufus. That way "all" the updates to 10 amount to 3 with one of them being the cumulative rollup.

more apps i cant unistall great ?
Use Powershell to remove these other apps (others have provided links on how to do this). Some apps like Cortana can't be removed because they are tied to other functions of the OS (in this instance Cortana is tied to the search and index functions). You can disable some of its functionality by using the registry and group policy. Removing unwanted apps is as simple as running a script in Powershell.

All you had to do is install Windows 8, download and run the Media Creation tool, create a usb flash drive, run the upgrade and done. Not sure why you took the long way around. However, if you did not have a usb flash drive, just run the Media Creation tool and do the upgrade from there. Basically, you did all that extra work for no reason at all. 😀
