    Hi there
    I think it was MY mistake -- I'm running ENTERPRISE W8.1 and obviously downloaded the NON enterprise version of W10. I'm now re-doing with the ENTERPRISE version which looks like it's updating OK.

    Be careful in which version you download -- there's a NON enterprise and an ENTERPRISE version. If you can see a Windows to Go icon in control panel then you have the ENTERPRISE version.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the info! I will keep it in mind if I decide to give the Enterprise version a try.

    Yes, I'd be a bit leery about doing that--although Microsoft hasn't said anything about the Preview being non-upgradable to the final version of 10--if I could count on a consistent update process from preview to final that I'd probably bite the bullet myself and upgrade...

    So far...I'm liking it a lot and have it installed on a separate partition, so I dual-boot between 8.1 & 10...both are UEFI installations with secure boot ON...which was nice. Win10 saw that ball and just ran with it, no problems. Still have lots of questions of course, which I will get to as time goes on.

    At any rate, it sure looks like Microsoft is firmly back on track--this OS is firmly in the "desktop/workstation/server-first" class, and that's what I like--mobile & cloud "first" PR notwithstanding....

    Had some difficulty getting in installed, ended up using the "upgrade" option. Seems to have kept all my options in place, even my taskbar which is essentially the taskbar as seen in XP.

    So far so good.

    That little search thing at the bottom, how do I get rid of it..??

    I don't think you can. That's going to become part of something else later on I think.

    Yes that would be a nice piece of information to have. I've installed on a separate drive - swapping on a laptop. Hopefully it will be an update all the way to the final. Guess we're just going to have to wait and see on that one.

    Previous versions didn't even let you upgrade "RTM" versions to final, and those WERE final (99.9%) versions

    So far my experience has been rather poor. I can't figure out if it's because of windows, or something specific to onedrive, but even though I set it to use the same onedrive folder on my windows 7 partition, it insist that the files in the folder are completely different from the files already synced, so it's says it has to upload all 200 gb of stuff again. After finally getting most of my important programs installed, I realized I forgot a couple of drivers. After installing them, my keyboard stopped working. After exhausting every other option, I had no choice but to do a system restore. The only restore point was from when I installed the very first driver, so now I get to reinstall EVERYTHING again. Such joy.

    Edit: sorry about any bad grammar. Posting from my phone.

    The only problem I've had so far is with Virtual Desktop. Not sure exactly what the problem is yet but it behaves strangely at times.

    I was able to eliminate most of the Modern stuff so my Start menu looks like this at the moment.
