    Default Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    The latest build is now available - build 10041. If you have elected for fast updates it is coming via Windows update, with a slightly odd name; look for "10041" in the update list. I have it installed on one machine. Haven't had a chance to really look at it, but my first impression is that it is a bit faster. IE hung up on me though. It also looks like the double login avatar has disappeared.

    On the other machine I haven't been able to install it because it is failing to complete an update that is earlier in the list - a driver update for a "high definition audio device". I can't find a way in Win10 to bypass individual updates - anyone got any ideas?

    Just downloaded the .esd file (The upgrade to 10041) converted it to a ISO, and now did a fresh install to a Virtual Machine.

    Might have a play later

    Bend over and -------------- OOPS wrong forum LOL Only kidding.

    Have a read: http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/h...ew-build-10041 There are the .esd files linked as well, select the one(s) you want.

    Download the ESD Decrypter - Unzip it and put all the contents as well as the .esd file in a folder, right click the Decrypter/ Run as da boss ( Administrator) a Window will open select option 1 and it should do the rest. When its done you you will have a ISO file.

    No need to use NTLite. If you scroll down to the bottom of the article theres a link to the default Product Key. A standard install may not need it, but the VM did.

    Note:these are the upgrade files that upgrade from one version to another, so if MS use the same process to upgrade w7-W8.1 to 10, you can grab the files and do a fresh install I suspect.

    Looks like they have "sorted" the problems ( read over secure) LAN settings not detecting other LAN computers. Once I changed the VM Network from default to Bridged it saw the whole LAN in an instant. Does seem faster as well.

    As long as somewhere is documented what those defaults are, so you know what you are in for.

    I've got the .iso - thanks Wainui. I'll try the install on this PC tomorrow.

    Sweet Personally I never like "upgrading" from an existing install, its always going to leave any previous faults behind.

    Re the reset -- Guess its a case of setting back to how it was first installed.
