I had C5/C6/C7 done a few years ago.  Wearing that darned HALO for 3 months was miserable.  But complete recovery, and I've been great since!

I don't use CAT or DAX here, so I just did a plain install, and everything worked great.  Running Windows 10 on Parallels on OS X 10.11.  Everything came up working perfectly.  Life is good.  Looking forward to the Maestro!

Thanks Jim....I understand what you mean I had C4-C5 and C5-C6 foraminectomy ....my nerve root C4-C5 was almost with irreversible damage.....guess I had luck to be able to move my left arm again with no limitation,  although I keep 10-15% of intermittent pain......My friend and Neurosurgeon told me next beers are on me....hahahaha...

Hope you have a great 2016.....catch you on bands

Avoid W10 until it is stable as most of the issue I saw during testing invariably showed up after W10 installed the latest update.. Figure about 2017 or 2018 before W10 will not cause problems...

Life is too short to waste it fixing W10 caused issues
