    it could be one of the known bugs in the new build.

    From MS:
    After installing this build, you may see a boot selection menu each time you reboot your PC. This is because a bug where a second boot option is persisted to uninstall the Windows 10 Technical Preview and roll back to the previous OS installed. When you get to this screen, if you do nothing it will automatically boot to the Windows 10 Technical Preview within 30 seconds by default or you can choose it on your own. Don't worry, this behavior is only temporary

    Thanx Wainui. It is a duel boot PC which I have EasyBCD installed so I removed that entry out of the boot up menu. One thing I have notice with this build is that I can't drag short cuts from the task bar or from the start menu to the desk top. I installed ClassicShell and it was OK with that..
    Regards,

    I'm running build 9926 under VMplayer and it is glacially slow.

    When I try and install Win 10 in a "real" partition I get an error about missing drivers right at the beginning - see attached screenshot. My problem is (a) how do I identify the device(s) it is talking about and (b) there are two devices I suspect - an SSD and a USB3 card. The drivers for both of these come in the form of setup.exe files, so I don't know how to make them available to Win10 setup.

    Any ideas for how I might either sidestep the issue or provide the drivers?

    TIA.

    That message can be caused by several things. Sometimes its a bad Download / burn and its corrupted, the inbuilt drivers in the install should be Fine.
    One other time I had that with an earlier version ( complete install not VM) and after changing the hard disk to use IDE from AHCI mode in the BIOS it went fine. ( this was with a Standard SATA HDD, not a SSD)

    Its also been reported many times that if you are using a X64 and it doesn't work with this error, try a 32 Bit / X86 and it works.

    I'll download a 32-bit version and see what happens. Thanks.

    The 32-bit iso gave exactly the same response.

    I'll try changing from AHCI to IDE, but I'm not optimistic.

    Can sometimes happen if you try to install from a USB drive instead of a DVD. Some say its if you use a USB3 port as well, but W10 has inbuilt support for USB3.

    Hooray(ish)! Changing to IDE worked. The 64-bit version installed smoothly and as I set it up to be all US, Cortana worked out of the box.
    Without any hope of success, I then changed back to AHCI, and sure enough it all turned to custard. Of course that means that Win7 is also IDE, but I can live with that.

    The next issue is that I now have the Win10 boot menu, which works OK except it is slow to load and if I choose Win7 it reboots and then goes straight to Win7. I can live with it, but I'd much prefer the old boot menu, just with Win 10 added. How do I remove the Win10 menu?

    Not 100% sure exactly what you are asking to do really. If you have W10 installed as a dual boot with W7, then 10 will take over with the boot options for 7 & 10.

    My W10 is the same with being slow to boot -- Compared to W7, same Hardware, W10 takes almost twice as long (timed it). Personally never dual booted 7 & 10, just as easy to throw in another HDD, the side is always off the case

    Don't know if this will be of any help ? but have a read of http://www.extremetech.com/computing...-and-windows-7
