    If you don't feel comfortable doing testing I would not try it. But if you want an alternative then try a VM.. Lots of instructions in the forum.

    This is what I think happened with the MBR/GPT problem I had.
    Computer has 2 HDs. One with Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and another
    with Windows 10 64-bit. The tech connected both drives and we
    fired up the computer. It had a hissie. To solve the problem
    we disconnected the Windows 10 drive. Then Windows 7 started
    to work. Took the computer home and worked for several days
    building it. Then I decided it was time to backup the computer.
    I use Clonezilla-live to do this. It spit out an error message
    saying that /dev/sda had a mismatched GPT/MBR partition.
    So my conclusion is that Windows 7 Pro uses the MBR and Windows
    10 uses GPT. I have only one computer and am now afraid to run
    Windows 10. The BIOS would be modified by Windows 10 and render
    the BIOS unusable for the Clonezilla-live program again.
    Windows 7 would work but not Clonezilla. So you say use another
    backup program. The answer to this is NO. I haven't found
    another backup program that handles a DISASTER failure. With
    Clonezilla-live this is no problem.
    Opinions would be appreciated.

    Windows 10 Build 14267

    I installed 9879 in real hardware and updated to 9926 really smoothly. The OS is quite stable, the overall look is well refined and some features were deeply improved. I approved it and I'm using it daily for general purposes without any kind of problem. It has minor bugs, but all can be fixed. Windows 10 reached "Preview Time" in a much better state than Windows 8 did years ago. I encourage everyone to try Windows 10, independently if you plan to do it on a VM or in real hardware.

    Don't get me wrong Vladimir. I see nothing wrong with Window 10
    for a Beta version. Nothing could be worse than Windows 8. I can not take
    the chance of testing on Windows 10 until thefinal version is out. Have lost
    a lot of time as you can see from the previous message.

    My only other option that I see is ditching Windows 7 and just running Windows 10.
    At this stage of development it might be OK. Would you take that chance?????

    windows 8.1 is much better than win8 ,and win10 -9926 is in my opinion is as good as win8.1 ,the final release of win10 will be great also ,my opinion only ,iam not a picky user ,I just kind of go with the flow .you know
