Windows 10 Insider Topic

Recommended Posts

Same as cmd, and command. Same program, different launch location. Clipboard works for me just fine within 10 and from host to VM and vice versa. Charms bar is still there normally, just can't mouse into it, have to use Win + C.

Source: On my W10 VM. Using 64 bit though, with 4GB of RAM allocated, and using VMWare Workstation

Thanks man, I'll use it!

 

I was advised in another thread to not do it not til its RTM I was thinking of putting it on my 2 in 1 though as a secondary OS. Are there any guides to running 2 OSs on here? I've never done it before.

There are a lot of guides on the internet :)

You're crazy :P

I was considering it as well, but I don't know about stability and licensing - will Microsoft take down my system when W10 gets released?

 

They most definitely will, at least that's what they did with Windows 8 (I believe you had 30 days to buy it or something like that).

I want to buy it anyway, I just dunno if I'll need to format it again.

it's basically a 8.1 service pack, anything that works with 8.1 still works 

This. Everything I have tried so far works, but there is no reason to switch. I can handle some bugs, but only if I get something out of it. So far I have noticed nothing different other then the start menu, which I never cared about anyways. I love being on the bleeding edge and I embrace change, but where is it. I haven't figured out yet why this isn't just Windows 8.2.

  • New flat design icons
  • 3, and 4 way window snap
  • Metro apps run in windows by defualt
  • Charms bar only accessible via Win + C
  • different file tree on C:\ by default
  • PC Settings, got shifted like a mofo
  • Ctrl + C, ctrl + v work in command prompt now
  • multiple work areas/desktops

just to name a few things that are new or changed....

The link said it would be up shortly and I forgot all about this till I heard my coworker talking about it. Downloading now as we speak.

 

Does anyone have recommendations for free imaging software for my PC? 

When you do the install does it work like a standard Windows upgrade? 

 

If so I might not bother imaging my PC because I know I'll buy this when it comes out anyways.

It runs like a normal OS install, aka, you can upgrade from 8, or, clean install. I'd recommend the latter though

I haven't tried to see if you can upgrade from 7 to it, but if you want, I can try it on one of the W7 VM's I have for school. Can always revert the snapshot.

Reporting back.

 

It allowed me to run everything just fine, so you can indeed do it. Mind you, some folders were lost, ones that aren't in 8/8.1 or they were moved, so keep that in mind (only pre-created folders, user created were fine). Aside from that, it worked flawlessly, though it took a really long time. I'd still recommend doing it in a VM if you can though, just so you don't have to worry.

I have already installed the preview on a new partition on my hard drive.
Someone told me that could, in the worst case, not only destroy Windows 10 but also the data on the other partition on the hard drive (which I would like to keep).
Is that true? What should I do to prevent data loss? Am I stupid?

Could be your VM settings, or, the host machine. Mine's running just fine, with no real crashes yet (one that I forced to see if they retained the W8 bluescreen look)

Yah I recommend putting it on a full system honestly. What I did. Loving it so far.


muh specs

Stuff- k70 with reds, steel series rival, g13, full desk covering mouse mat

All parts black

Workstation(desk)- 3770k, 970 reference, 16GB of some crucial memory, a motherboard of some kind I don't remember, Micomsoft SC-512N1-L/DVI, CM Storm Trooper (It's got a handle, can you handle that?), 240mm Asetek based AIO, Crucial M550 256GB (upgrade soon), some hard drives, disc drives, and hot swap bays

Screens- 3  ASUS VN248H-P IPS 1080p screens mounted on a stand, some old tv on the wall above it.

For those who want Guest Additions installed, I found a fix: If you get The VirtualBox Guest Additions cannot be installed on this version of Windows.http://fixedbyvonnie.com/2014/10/install-windows-10-in-virtualbox/

 

 

VBoxWindowsAdditions-amd-x64 /extract /D=C:\Drivers

fixedbyvonnie-windows-10-installing-vbox

We’re basically manually extracting the VirtualBox drivers to a folder on the VM.

Now, in the VM, open the Device Manager, double click the Display Adapters section and update the driver to use the files we just extracted to C:\Drivers.

Update: Getting Windows Cannot Initilize the device driver for this hardware (error 37) Used the VBoxVideo drivers but haven't tried installing the Windows 8 graphic drivers (VBoxVideoW8 I think) as it keeps erroring out saying that the driver doesn't support this OS and the other driver is vista (VBoxVideoWV) and it didn't work (error 37)

force it for 8.1 mode? Idk I haven't tried it in a VM yet. But all of my 8 drivers have works so far for the most part.

Can you imagine my luck....

I decide to update VirtualBox to the latest version (4.3.12?) to run Win 10, its installation completely fucks up my PC, forcing me to "refresh" my Windows 8.1 installation. Fortunately, I only lost my programs, not documents, thank god.

I hope I'll be able to report back in the evening with some good news.

I got it up and running on this old laptop I've been using since I moved. 1.5 GB of ram, and an OLD as hell 32 bit processor(Duel core Core duo T2060) and I'm happy to report it run WAY better then windows 8.1, I mean by a country mile Before if I had 5-6 tabs open it would start lagging out, and pinning the HDD, right now 25 tabs open and still have a good 200 MB of ram left. and its not just freezing when I switch tabs. Man I missed being able to open more then a few things at once xD
