Question Regarding Windows 7 upgrade to Windows 10 Technical Preview

Q: Question Regarding Windows 7 upgrade to Windows 10 Technical Preview

Hello,
 
So basically my girlfriend has Windows 7, I decided to upgrade her computer to the Windows 10 Technical Preview to fool around with it a bit more.
 
My question is, once its released on July 29th, will I be able to get the FREE copy I was originally supposed to get or am I stuck with the technical preview version?
 
How does Microsoft know I used to have Windows 7?
 
Also,
 
She has the Chinese version, so when I upgraded it converted everything to Chinese and I had to change all the settings to English. Will I be able to download a FRESH english ISO and upgrade to that for free?

Preferred Solution: Question Regarding Windows 7 upgrade to Windows 10 Technical Preview

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Question Regarding Windows 7 upgrade to Windows 10 Technical Preview

Hi Simpuhl What a coincidence, someone just posted a picture on another forum that answers your question.So yes, you'll be able to either upgrade to the official release of Windows 10 on July 29th, or download an .iso to perform a clean installation and use your product key to activate it.

So, i'm new to this forum just so i could get this sorted out.
A couple months back my friend gave me a laptop (I promise you with all that I am that he GAVE it to me,to clear that up) the laptop is running Windows 10 Technical preview (Evaluation copy.Build9926)
I have been using the laptop fine since I got it, probably some performance issues but I didnt stress because I will be updating near the end of the year to a desktop.
This morning when I logged on I received a windows notification saying that my windows 10 copy is outdated, and the computer will restart every 2 hours until it fails to start anymore. It then gives me a link to the microsoft website giving me directions to update to windows 10. But seeming the laptop is already on 'Windows 10' im stuck as to what I can do.

I would be fine to go back to windows 7 or 8, or even keep 10. but I don't want to have to pay for another copy of windows considering the laptop has already had windows 7 before (The key has not been re used elsewhere)

p.s: The laptop WAS dual booting windows 7 and 10 a few months before I received it, but I think he may of deleted the windows 7 from the computer as a matter of privacy, it now only boots the windows 10 technical preview (Of my understanding)

Since you?ve installed this version either by upgrading the system or in a multi-boot environment, the earlier existing stable copy might have been disturbed. Personally I found my own laptop flashing weirdly during booting, after installing the preview. I made it dual boot with Windows 8.1, and it seems like the preview haf already disturbed the stable copy.

I initially has this problem when installing the Windows 10 preview on VirtualBox. Enabling "PAE/NX" in the virtual machine properties solved the problem. If you select Windows 8.1 as the OS type during the creation of the virtual machine this will be selected for you.

In Windows 7 and older CPU support for DEP was recommended but not required. But starting with Windows 8 this became a requirement. PAE and NX (can have different names) provide this support.

I do not want to be out of line, nor post something already posted, but I'm at a loss here. Downloaded win10 tech preview, and now it is expired. Build 9926. I do know that it is outdated, but did not get back to it in time.\
Now, it is leaving me a warning that my computer will shutdown every 2-3 hours, and eventually not restart at all until I install a new operating system.
This seems quite harsh on Microsoft's part, but I did not keep up with it. This is on an Acer netbook, previous 8.1, maybe two years old. I have been on the horn with Microsoft 4 times, and they tell me I will have to purchase (?) another copy of 8.1 in order to get Windows 10. I must be missing something, but I don't know where to turn.
The first technician got into my computer remotely, verified its authenticity, and went to a website to download win 10. It seemed to go well for a couple of hours, and then the comp. shut down! When it came back up, nothing.
Can anyone help me with this? I can't afford a new Operating system.

Over the weekend, the one-millionth person registered to sign-up for the Windows Insider Program and download and install the Windows Technical Preview, Microsoft says, and unprecedented level of pre-release involvement for Windows. That this comes less than two weeks into the availability of the preview is a positive sign for the future success of Windows 10.

I have been using my Dell U2414H monitor and AC511 soundbar on Windows 10 TP for several months without issue. However, as of the last update, the soundbar is no longer recognised as itself, but instead as 'USB Audio Device' using the generic Microsoft drivers in Device Manager. This results in low-level, but quite annoying background noise or hum.
I have tried unplugging, replugging and switching the USB cables, uninstalling the USB Audio Device in Device Manager and replugging etc, to no avail. Frustratingly, the picture of the Soundbar often comes up in the Taskbar, but the correct driver fails to install.
I would like to try manually installing the driver using the 'Have disk' function, but since the driver for the Soundbar is WHQL signed, there isn't a download.
Could Dell make the driver package available as a download?
Or could an enterprising person with a working soundbar locate the driver files and package them?
Thanks a lot in advance for the help!

So today I'm gonna create this thread because I didn't see any thread like this here on forums.

First and inforemost: YES, you can install latest ESET Smart Security 8 / ESET NOD32 v8 to Windows Technical Preview (I'm currently using 10041 build of Win TP).

So after installing there is one problem which I found: HIPS module can't be enabled.
Fix for this is temporary (for me on latest build is untested) and that is enabling Pre-relase updates and clearing update cache. After you done all of that restart PC, and try to update ESS/NOD32.

If you find new problems while using Win TP and ESET tools, comment here
 

A:ESET Security tools and Windows 10 Technical Preview - buglist and some fixes

OK, here I'm to say that in latest TP build 10041 there is another issue (which I found before couple minutes ago) and that is crashing of GUI after some notifications about latest update. ESS restarted GUI, but that is one heck of problem right now. Maybe it is just me with that problem, didn't look at ESET Forums.

Also HIPS isn't fixed with pre-release updates (from expirience) in this build, maybe we need to wait ESET's reaction.

A:Windows 10 Technical Preview Update thru Win7's windows update

Don`t do it on your Windows 7 machine. Uninstall the update and hide it, if that`s what you mean.

Installing 10 to your W7 partition should have no affect on your recovery partition, but I wouldn`t chance it, no way.

Install Windows 10 on a separate drive, first unplugging the W7 drive, they do not dual boot well together.

Install 10 in a VM if you really want to look at it, it is nothing special and not worth the effort.

Hi all,

I've been running Windows 8 for some time on a VMware Fusion virtual machine on my 2011 MacBook Pro (2.2GHz, 8GB RAM, OS X 10.8.1) without any problems.

Recently I upgraded to the new version (5.0.1) and was prompted to upgrade my VM. I tried this, but the dreaded dpc_watchdog_violation kept popping up, effectively causing an infinite restart loop. I stopped the VM and when I reopened it, I chose 'not upgrade' which opened the VM normally as before.

I installed the tool and grabbed some info, attached below. Thanks for your help in advance!

Cheers,

gautsch

A:Windows 8 Preview VM crashes on Upgrade

I use VMware Player 5 on Windows and those problems never occurred to me.
Sorry no Workstation or Fusion but the same general settings should apply since it's the same version.

If it's a VM setting problem it should be fixable.

However, here on Player, there is no way to update the vm version automatically like in Fusion or Workstation, but you can manually update it:

-First stop the VM,

-Edit the vmx file of the VM:

Code:
config.version = "8"
virtualHW.version = "9"


That's it
ONLY the second line here needs to be a 9 the first one is an 8.

Upgrade complete, install the new tools from the VM.

Works here.

If you have the product key, you can use the iso someone else has already downloaded.

Otherwise, you may have to resort to google.

MS doesn't appear to have uploaded anything to help those who are stuck.

I assume you have another o/s you can install - just using the 30 day trial - win 7, or Vista.

You could install one of those and try downloading from there.

As a retired IT manager with time on my hands, I decided to give the Windows Technical Preview a try last year. I had installed the Win7 preview a few years ago, and was impressed enough that I broke the cardinal rule of MS based IT shops "NEVER Install a dot zero release!" and actually installed Win7 when it first came out. I skipped 8 because it was so obviously intended for tablets/touchscreens. But when they announced the 10 preview, it looked like MS was trying to lure us old-timers back. So I installed the technical preview on an 18 month old Toshiba Satellite(dual-core CoreI5 [Ivy-Bridge], 8 GB memory 500GB HDD) that does not have a touchscreen. I didn't install the first release, but I think it was the second version. Through November, December and January I used my lap top frequently and installed updates as they came along. I didn't find any compelling reason to like the preview, but it ran all of my software fine and I had few problems.

In February, I became busy with my volunteer job, managing a free tax preparation site, so the use of my laptop dropped as I worked mostly on my Win7 desktop. I continued to use my laptop sporadically, and was getting more and more concerned about Win10. I disliked that it automatically assumed all networks I signed into were public. And while I figured out how to change them to work or private, it wasn't obvious. Then there was the disappearance of the Control Panel. Spartan came along a couple of weeks a... Read more

To the best of my knowledge the technical preview was just an early beta.

Hello everyone, starting with this post, please post here with any updates/news about new builds that are released for the Technical Preview of Windows 10, this will keep a nice timeline of updates and will keep the general Windows 10 forum clean and organized. This post will be unpinned when Windows 10 is officially released. 
 
Please do not post a new topic in the Windows 10 forum about new builds and news about them, instead post it here in this topic.
 
You may discuss each build here, but if you have a problem with a build that you would like help with post it in a new topic in the Windows 10 forum, that way you can receive help with that issue.
 
It would be helpful if you could put the build number at the top of your post along with what track it is in so others can easily find that information and then read about it.

Hi,
I have recently updated my Office 2007 to 2010(technical preview) and eagerly opened the Word to type a letter, after making the first misspelling word I have right clicked on it to choose from suggestions, but the window is not stable to choose from!! only shows for a very short time and disappears. Does anybody knows the reason? or it's because of being the beta version( I don't think so)?

Please comment your ideas,

A:right click window in word 2010(technical preview)

Project Honolulu is a flexible, lightweight browser-based customer-deployed platform and solution for Windows Server management scenarios for troubleshooting, configuration and maintenance. Project Honolulu Technical Preview 1712 Build 05002 is now available to Insiders before the public.

Hello,

I have trouble with a particular position with the display windows,
When I'm putting the mouse over the thumbnail window I see it correctly but the original windows is "transparent" I don't see the information to say that I do not see its contents as I have not clicked on the thumbnail, on other items just drag the pointer over the thumbnail for the full window visible.

I hope I have made ​​clear, if anyone can help me?

I have an Asus Eee PC 1005HA that runs XP that i want to upgrade to windows 7. I know I need to back up my data because it will do a clean install and delete all my data but I don't have a external hard drive and don't really want to buy one.

My hard drive is partitioned (is that even the right word?) into two Drives (C and D) with 75GB in each. My question is, does the clean install wipe only the C partition or both C and D? I only need to back up about 25GB of data and was wondering if I move all my data to the second partition will that save me the hassle of having to go buy/borrow an external hard drive? Thanks in advance!
