I've decided to install the downloadable .iso ( "Download Windows 10 Insider Preview ISO" ) on another hard drive to keep intact my Windows 7 files

The following is from [url]'>Link (

"Feature deprecation section

If you have Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 8 Pro with Media Center, or Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center and you install Windows 10, Windows Media Center will be removed.
Watching DVDs requires separate playback software
Windows 7 desktop gadgets will be removed as part of installing Windows 10.
Windows 10 Home users will have updates from Windows Update automatically available. Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise users will have the ability to defer updates.
Solitaire, Minesweeper, and Hearts Games that come pre-installed on Windows 7 will be removed as part of installing the Windows 10 upgrade. Microsoft has released our version of Solitaire and Minesweeper called the “Microsoft Solitaire Collection” and “Microsoft Minesweeper.”
If you have a USB floppy drive, you will need to download the latest driver from Windows Update or from the manufacturer's website.
If you have Windows Live Essentials installed on your system, the OneDrive application is removed and replaced with the inbox version of OneDrive."

Better be safe than sorry

Some important updates about the RTM build and activation if you're registered to be an insider.


It looks like Windows 10 will stay activated if you participated. It looks like users can get a "free" version by opting an account into the Insider Preview with the catch being that you must always be on an unstable build which has restrictions on updates (they are installed by force) and on data collection (Windows will always collect and send data on how you use Windows so that Microsoft can continue improving it).

EDIT: One more restriction for insider preview builds: You can only use a Microsoft Account. Local accounts will not be allowed. Users not in the Insider Preview can still use local accounts.

There is a large volume of builds coming through on the fast ring for Windows Insiders (there have 3 this week). This is a very good sign in terms of stability in that many of their builds are consistently passing the criteria needed to go out to the public.

I've decided to install this on a tablet (Surface Pro 2) and take it for a run. There is one major issue thus far and that is that the tablet will refuse to stay in sleep mode. Hopefully that gets fixed soon.

Other than that, the UX experience will take getting used to. It's pretty good thus far but a huge shift from Windows 8 / 8.1 if you're used to those.

2 things on Windows 10.
If you have not heard, not everyone should expect to get upgraded at the end of the month. Roll-out is going to be progressive. [url]'>Link

Secondly, and this one is HUGE...
Custom PC builders, such as myself, can expect an even longer delay. I have yet to receive an upgrade notice, and yes I own a legit copy of W7 purchased from the MS store, so I decided to contact tech support.
They were super and did a remote into my PC after I explained. So he verified my Windows was legit, then tried to manually lock in the update through config files and multiple reboots. After a bit he went and talked to someone, came back and asked me, "what brand is my pc"? Uh... Case says Corsair, Processor says AMD, operating system is Windows. Built it myself, what else do you need to know?

So to cut to the chase... He informed me that they were having problems with home built pc's and the update process for some reason. That I shouldn't worry about, the issues were being address, and would be taken care of "soon". Whatever that may mean, tech support was excellent, and was a very pleasant surprise.
