Windows 10 RTM
« on: July 16, 2015, 01:05:20 AM »

After many months of hard work, late nights, bug squashing, and likely a few tears, Microsoft has signed-off on the RTM build of Windows 10. The OS will now be sent out to select partners so that they can begin testing the OS, loading it on to hardware and getting it ready for consumers around the world.

Now we wait for the leak, lol!

Been using it for 3 days and I'm liking it so far.

My PC is dual boot SSD and HDD options. Both are Windows 7. I get the "Get Windows 10" icon when booted from the SSD but not from the HDD.

I have taken a look at the mydigitallife forums, but haven't found answer.

Is there a download iso available if I want to go from 8.1 to 10 rtm? From what I read, the only way to upgrade is if you are already an existing windows 10 pre-rtm user via windows update.

So, short of waiting for the july 29 release, can I update now?

^ there are links @ mdl, if you have genuine win 7 or 8.1 installations just upgrade to win 10 and your copy will be automatically activated. clean installations will have to wait til the 29th to be activated. i also read that once you upgraded over genuine 7 or 8 machines you can do a clean install because microsoft servers keeps your machines id and automatically activates it when you go online.

I am now installing it over Win 8.1. Never got the hang of the UI anyway so no loss whatever happens.

The install on the Win 8.1 PC went well. However, when I tried it on a backup PC running windows 7, the install hanged after the 3rd boot. After resetting, the install reverted back to Win 7. It's a relatively new PC with an Intel I3 CPU and 1150 motherboard. It has a 128GB SSD and 1TB HDD.  It's unfortunate because my main PC is a similar setup but with better specs.

hmm... haven't encountered any installation problems on the 4 units (1 desktop, 3 laptops) i've installed it on. only thing that annoys me is the lack of update in asus' part for the fliplock (touchpad, keyboard disable) software for it's transformer laptops.

The Windows 7 rig is dual boot and it can boot to Windows 7 from the HDD. I tried installing Win 10 x86 on that hard drive but it's the same failed result. It's a generic machine with Asus motherboard with Intel chipset and nVidia GTX650 display.

I also tried updating without keeping the data but without success. It does have an add-on card to supply extra serial ports. That's using a chinese brand I/O chipset. That is the only thing out of the ordinary. I will try to remove that and try again.

The install process simply hangs. I get a blank screen after the part of copying files and before "installing drivers and features". On the latest attempt, I left the installer running to go out to lunch and it was hanged with the black screen when I returned more than an hour later. There was no activity in the hard drive and so I pressed reset. It rebooted, started with the Win 10 installing page but quickly returned to the black screen. There was activity on the HDD this time but after a while it returned to Windows 7 with the message saying it failed on the third reboot.

Maybe it's the installer image I have but I used both x64 and x86 images with the same result. Maybe I will wait for the official release. It has the Get Windows 10 icon and I reserved a copy. It should automatically download the release image.

I was mistaken. It's an Asrock (not Asus) H81M mobo with I3-4130 CPU. I only use it for testing. My work PC is an Asrock H77 mobo with I7-3770. That won't get updated until I am sure all my programs run without any problem on Win 10 on the backup machine.

^ We need Enterprise Ed!

I wonder though if hooking up the Pro edition to an AD domain with WSUS will allow selective deployment of updates...

^ There is a defer updates option in enterprise (and in pro?) but no option to select what updates you want to install. This is one of the few things I hate in Win10.

So wait, before I upgrade my main machine, what do you mean that you cannot select the update to install in PRO?
You cannot check which update to install and which to disregard using checkboxes in windows update?


I've read that when you are using the home edition, updates are installed automatically.
