    Strange Occurrences in Windows Technical Preview


    Post your strange experiences with Windows Technical Preview so we can hash over them a while!

    I'll start:
    For example, if you may be running WTP in a dual boot scenario and perform a 'Refresh' with media from PC Settings, it might seem like the process saves some settings but wipes out others including your other OS.
    In my experience Windows had reset the boot options to Technical Preview as default with a timeout of 0 seconds.
    If this is the case, hold 'Shift' and press restart, then choose 'Use another operating system', on the next window choose 'Change defaults', on the next window 'Change the timer' and 'Choose a default operating system' if you wish.

    So, are you wanting us to describe strange situations and our workaround or fix for said situation? If that's the case, this is a welcome thread.

    However, what I see happening is folks throwing out a situation they don't have a solution for and wanting those reading to help them solve it. In that case, they should start their own thread, rather than jump in here.

    I'm not trying to be picky, but to clarify what you'd like to see.

    The online upgrade is hit or miss. But if you create an ISO from the same upgrade and do a clean install, everything is working fine.

    Good point.
    I suppose the prudent thing to do would be to submit Feedback, if you're so inclined and set up to do so.
    I guess I wanted to nail down a thread dealing with "Hey, why did this happen"/"Anybody else experience this" sort of issues.
    My bad, sorry.
