Hello,

 

I just noticed that an upgrade to W10 Technical Preview is also available via Windows Update. Has anyone tried this out? I would like to hear about this a bit more before I jump into this myself.

 

Thank you very much.

Thanks for this info, Ken.

 

I just have some follow-up questions:

 

Did you install the w10 Tech Preview in the PC that you normally use?

Are the other programs working well (office suite, web and multimedia programs, etc.)?

Did the upgrade mess with your personal data?

Is it possible to rollback to Win 8.1, just in case?

 

Cheers,

Hi Anthony,

Yes - though I don’t use the PC a whole lot. I am mainly a Mac man.

Yes - no problems at all that I can see

Not at all,

On installation they say you can’t roll back. I don’t know if that’s true, I haven’t tried because I haven’t needed to.

Thanks for the quick reply, Ken.

 

I don't quite understand why MS doesn't allow a rollback of the installation...What would happen when the user finally decides not to upgrade to the release version of W10 (which I suppose won't be for free, unlike the 8.0-->8.1 update)?

MS announced yesterday that the upgrade to 10 will be free.

 

I have no idea about the rollback, as I am a quite disinterested Windows user. It may have something to do with the TechPreview nature of it. Sorry I can’t be of more help.
