Title: Windows 10 RTM
Post by: theDUD3 on July 16, 2015, 01:05:20 AM
Quote
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.

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.
Title: Re: Windows 10 RTM
Post by: motion55 on July 23, 2015, 08:36:51 AM
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.

Post by: motion55 on July 23, 2015, 11:25:04 AM
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.

Title: Re: Windows 10 RTM
Post by: motion55 on July 23, 2015, 05:14:34 PM
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.

Post by: Simbadda on July 24, 2015, 10:59:55 AM
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.

Upgrade/Clean Install FAQ

Quote
1.  Can I do a clean install:
 
 Yes but you have to upgrade first then you can do a clean ISO install.
 
 
 2.  Is Windows 10 Build 10240 RTM?:
 
 It doesn't matter. It will be updated to GA (and beyond) through windows update. 
 
 Yes just remember that RTM means release to manufacturer not release to market and also remember this is a new model WAAS=Windows as a service. Updates we are receiving since build 10240 will all be day 1 patch for the general public.  (also note RTM and GA amounsgt others like Alpha, beta, RC1 and RC2 are outdated terms we need to stop using.)
 
 3. What do all these different build numbers mean?
 
 build 10240 is the release that will happen on July 29th.  Insiders already got it.
 Builds 10500 are in the TH2 branch and will be a future release.
 
 4.  Why can't I activate right now?
 
 You had to be an insider participant already, and had to have build 10162 or 10166 installed.  All previous keys are frozen as well as some to the activation.  Yes there are other ways such KMS to activate but officially new activation is closed as well as previous key are locked. Search the forums for the KMS however it is not an official activation.
 
 5. What are these terms I keep seeing such as RTM, GA, etc.?
 
 RTM means Release to manufacture...it means the source code was good enough to install for PC for market.  It does not mean the code is finished or done, and it certainly does not mean release to market.
 
 GA means General Availability   It was the term meaning when the source bits hit the shelves basically, however in the digital age we now live in it is meaningless.
 
 Other terms that are now dead...Alpha- very early code, not generally available, beta-better then alpha code, RC1- release candidate 1, RC2- release candidate 2, these were all various stages of software development.  All of these terms are now outdated in today worlds, including RTM and GA.
 
 6. How/where do I get Win 10 RTM?  (added July 22, 2015)
 It is not available yet.  You have several options depends on your current situations.  Through Windows Update, as an Insider, or purchase. Microsoft had an upgrade matrix to tell you how to get it.  See this page http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windo...specifications (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-10-specifications)
 
 7.   If I wanna get Win 10 Enterprise, will i need Win 7 Enterprise and it will automatically know to upgrade to win10 enterprise?
 
 Enterprise is not part of the free upgrade and volume licensing, so people running those will not get it direct..Microsoft has stated they need to see their companies for that. 
 
 8. Lets say we upgrade from win 7 to win 10, i suppose we wouldn't need to key in any key, BUT after we begin doing a clean installation (especially when via unattended) is there a stage where we need to key in a product key ? if yes is it during setup or post-setup?
 

 
 To meet the terms of the free Windows 10 you must upgrade from a qualifying system based on the matrix I linked to in a previous question.  Once you have upgraded you do not need a product key, nor do you need a key when upgrading from a qualifying system (OS).  Once you have upgraded at least once you are free to do clean installs, at some future point Microsoft will be providing ISO.
 
 9.  Can I use the leaked OEM image file?
 
 Indications are yes as we have no reason to believe our activation can be changes.  Simply rename it ISO and use a tool like RUFUS to burn it to a USB drive or mount within Windows.  Note at this time you already had to be Insider with your current hardware to activate and had to be running builds 10162 or 10166.  Activation is frozen.   Yes there are other methods but that is not the purpose of these FAQs  search if you need another method.
 
 10.  Can I upgrade through VHD?
 
 No, native VHD boot doesn't support upgrading the Windows version.

This.

This is such a f@cking compromise.

But are those updates (PRO version) installed automatically, or can one defer the installation?

System updates are welcome, but MS has in the past released flawed updates. The problem is if the driver updates will be forced.

About defer updates = http://www.howtogeek.com/223083/what-does-%E2%80%9Cdefer-upgrades%E2%80%9D-in-windows-10-mean/
Title: Re: Windows 10 RTM
Post by: splerdu on July 24, 2015, 01:35:44 PM
^ AFAIK:
All updates are mandatory, and automatic for Home.
Pro can defer feature updates for a time, but not indefinitely. Security updates are still mandatory for Pro and cannot be deferred.
Enterprise can choose which updates to apply or not, same as current setup.

Enterprise administrators still have full control (http://blogs.windows.com/business/2015/01/30/windows-10-for-enterprise-more-secure-and-up-to-date/) over deployment of updates using WSUS and SCCM.
Title: Re: Windows 10 RTM
Post by: Simbadda on July 24, 2015, 01:40:30 PM
Based on further reading, the windows update in win 10 forces driver updates.

Although there is a post saying that can be fixed by using policy editor.

Windows as a service, yeay!
Title: Re: Windows 10 RTM
Post by: motion55 on July 24, 2015, 06:33:05 PM
I finally was able to install Win 10 on my backup machine. The key was the update step before install. Before I repeatedly skipped that step thinking there shouldn't be updates at this early stage. Maybe on that step it downloads critical drivers for my machine.

Post by: Simbadda on July 27, 2015, 12:10:38 AM
I'm running windows 10 pro now, needs to adjust for some things since they have changed since 8.1.

I love the hybrid start menu, there's no more need for me to use start10 and modern mix.

Too bad that cortana isn't available in the philippines yet.

This os is a keeper for me.

Post by: Simbadda on July 27, 2015, 02:45:40 PM
^^ i also have the gtx970 on my rig right now.

since upgrading to win 10, windows update has not offered me any driver update.  I have the 353.51 driver installed.
Title: Re: Windows 10 RTM
Post by: splerdu on July 27, 2015, 08:33:01 PM
^ On an earlier preview build you could turn off automatic driver updates in System Properties > Hardware > Device Installation Settings.
I don't have a copy of the RTM build though.

It is usually tougher on the main rig. It usually contains lots of programs and your precious data. If you plan to keep all data and programs, the free space should be more than 50% of the drive's capacity. The installer will make copies of the old user data to the windows 10 user folder without erasing the old data.

You can select not to keep user data. The old user data isn't lost. The installer will move them to a windows.old folder. After installation, you can recreate the old user accounts and manually transfer files from the windows.old folder to the new user folders. You can then erase the windows.old folder using drive cleaner.

I am on a dual monitor setup. I like the way the wallpaper can span both monitors.

I don't know if it is true with windows 8.1. Because of the tiled start menu, I decided I don't need the taskbar to be visible all the time and so I enabled auto-hide. Now that it is auto-hide, I decided to move the taskbar back to the bottom. Previously, I moved it to the left part of screen Ubuntu style. On the dual monitor, I was pleasantly surprised the taskbar pops up on either of the monitors depending on where you bring down the mouse.

i think i can reassign it to windows key using its software, but i find its current use of switching the KB lights on and off useful.

can the  shortcut key be put in a clickable icon?

Yup. It seems to be busy updating when the screen goes black.

We have the CM Storm trigger on the home desktop. You can use the Trigger app to set the left storm key as Winkey on any of the profile. After setting, you can uninstall the app and the setting will persist on the keyboard. Procedure here:

i assigned M1 Key as winkey but when i press M1+L the screen doesn't lock. it opens the search tool searching for L.

Post by: motion55 on August 10, 2015, 04:48:07 PM
I don't think M! or any of the macro keys can be assigned as Winkey. The example documentation I supplied showed how to assign Winkey to the left Storm key.

migration to 500gb SSD and upgrade to windows 10 success :D steam games also still work well. no hiccups for me during shutdown/start up even after updates, i had one crash though, that damn IRQ_LESS blahblah when my usb drive was plugged in. still customizing le start menu and researching how to lessen the amount of data my desktop is sending back to M$.

i transferred my old, 250GB SSD to le kumander's laptop and reinstalled win7 sp1 yesterday and updated, hopefully that gets upgraded to 10 tonight

i tried the left storm key, can't make it windows key. but it's ok now, i can live with clicking on the lock screen.

guys, is there something i should do to make windows 10 run smoother? in windows 7, one needs to run a sort of benchmarking tool in windows to enable aero and stuff. i can't find something similar to windows 10 and i find the effects and appearance quite crude.

thanks!

^if you are looking for something similar to the appearance of aero you might be disappointed, windows 10 is much flatter in appearance than 7 (but 8 is even flatter).

Windows 10's obsession with Windows Key shortcuts is getting on my nerves. first it's the shortcut for locking the screen, now it's that Game Bar needs it to start and i can't find the application for it, not even using search, because Game Bar stopped popping out.


the damn thing doesn't even minimize. it just disappears.

Just finished installing win10 on a 5-7y/o spare Sempron 2.1GHz , 2GB RAM last night.  It was usable on Win7 and almost usable on 8.1 but it runs great on Win10.

Needs some adjustment from Win7 but everything worked after installation. Nagulat ako hahaha.

This will be for my daughters (MS Office, browsing, etc) so it should be good enough. Just need to scrounge out some funds to get a new 19-20" LED monitor.

Assuming you have a valid Windows 7 or 8 license that you can re-activate I say do the proc and mobo upgrades first. I'm not sure how Win 10 will handle the upgrades. That is unless you have a valid Win 10 key and not just upgrading from an earlier version.

Even if you don't like upgrading to Windows 10 but your PC is qualified, do so before the deadline. You can then revert back to the original OS. This way if you sell your PC or motherboard, it will have the option to install Windows 10 later.

So I joined the insider program to get the anniversary update ahead of the august 2 release, and then went back to production ring.

The enhancements and fixes to edge are indeed welcome.

Any idea if the Win10 digital entitlement is tied to just the "motherboard", or to "motherboard + processor" (saw somewhere that says this).

It's a matter of semantics. July 29 was the last day Microsoft's offer of free update expires. That means the GWX icon is now gone. But they say if you attempt to upgrade by running the setup.exe from the Windows 10 disk, you still can update. You still end up with an activated Windows 10. I don't know for how long this is allowed.

I picked up the Xeon E5-2670 from the Post Office mid afternoon. At the office, I installed it into the Alienware Aurora R4 motherboard. I proceeded to update the Windows 7 Professional to Windows 10 from an image on the USB drive. I chose build 1511 to install. I finished the update just before the car arrived to pick me up. I was just able to briefly see that it was activated with a digital entitlement. Tomorrow I do a clean install of build 1607 (anniversary ed.). It should change to activation with a digital license.
