Ok. So I went down to the local thrift shop and found an older Phillips monitor to get me by. It turns out to be a pretty good monitor for $20. Uglier than heck, though!
Booted up and it's a go! Trying to install the ISO on a USB, but it doesn't list the thumb drive in the list. Ugh! Scrapped that for now and burning to a DVD.
I'll get 10 installed even if it kills me!
Shouldn't be long to go now
You will soon be able to enjoy the new Start Menu and Desktop goodness that Win 10 brings

Houston. We have loading apps. 450 mile range.....
Houston! We have reached orbit!
All went very well. About a half hour all said and done. Signed in with MS account, apps loaded including Bing Desktop with today's pic, and favorites loaded. Start Screen should be just as in 8.1 once I get rid of this ugly Start Menu.
Now to tweak and discover.....
Enjoy it, glad you got it going
First thoughts > Yuck! Got it to use Start Screen instead of the Start Menu. Then to discover that not all my Store apps were installed as a phase of the installation said. It just installed the Store and MSN apps. My Store apps are registered in All Apps, but not installed. Then after installing them I have to pin to Start Screen. Then I'll have to rearrange all the tiles. This was all automatically performed when upgrading from 8 to 8.1 or a reinstall. Not a real big deal, but somewhat of a back step so far as I'm concerned.
I took a break. If I can't get this to boot to Start Screen, this OS won't be for me. I realize that it's just a preview though.

Most of my apps installed, but some didn't, not sure if it was the default ones that did
Do you have syncing turned on via your MS account, with this on it should pick up the start screen layout from your 8 and show the screen as it was
Thanks, Paul. I'm pretty sure I do. I've got some errands to run, so it'll be a while.
