    Might be, but give it a little bit. It's quite a bit better for me this morning than it was last night.

    I had a "connection problem" at one point also. Had no problem getting to a web page at that point though.

    This build doesn't seem to want to install on Virtualbox. Stuck on the "Getting ready" screen...

    According to this website it is possible to get Spartan working in this build. I have not installed yet so just posting fyi:

    IIRC I had that problem with a previous build.

    How are you trying to install?

    Are you using a ISO or DVD.

    If you are using Oracle VM Virtual Box make sure you have the latest version which supports Windows 10 - Mines 4.3.20, make sure you select Windows 8.1 as the OS.

    It can take a time, This PC has only 4GB total memory, ( split 50/50 on VM and PC) and took just on 10 minutes to get past that stage, as long as the Activity light on the VM, and PC are going nuts go have a couple of beers while waiting.

    Installing from ISO, updated to the latest version and still a no go. Saw something about DEP being an issue, will try that tomorrow.

    Finally got the preview going on a spare machine. Not going to make any judgements on performance as it only has 2GB RAM but it seems okay so far. Still some annoyances and the Settings app didn't work the first time around.

    But Cortana works

    Just wondering what "Windows Rollback" is in the boot menu. Does it go to the previous version or roll back the current version to the previous version??
