Before doing a partition resize it is very important to have an image backup or some other means of restoring your OS and files. These procedures usually have no issues but sometimes things go wrong - with potentially disastrous consequences. Installing Windows 10 to a virtual machine is much safer.
Thanks Bill Okay I'm not familiar with vm so I trust you on that one
No need to back out the install needs an expert so please post

I will stay subscribed and help out if jamos gets stuck, but I think it gets confusing if too many members post.
I think jamos needs to understand why he is installing Win10 - it's fairly stable, but that might not always be the case.
LMiller posted an excellent link on "Before you ..."
If jamos accepts the risks (Win10 Preview code, Backups on the same drive, etc) and figures out how he wants to install Win10 - then I think the process will go much smoother.
The ball falls back to jamos' court.
Why are you installing Win10
How you want to install Win10
Dual boot, VM, Virtual Drive (this one I'd need to research)
Where do you want to install Win10
Where do you want to back up your system(s) and data
How proficient with computers are you - Schultz (I know nothing), average, experienced.
