    Should I install Windows 10 or not?


    I literally copied a Windows ISO to my usb stick and I'm not sure if I'll break my laptop. Please help me decide. I want to install but but I'm too scared as well! I also use ubuntu 14.04 LTS

    Doing a copy to a usb stick will not even boot you need to use something like rufus to copy the files so that the usb stick will be boot able. This tutorial will tell you what need to happen. USB Flash Drive - Create to Install Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums[1]=General%20Tips

    Create an image backup of your current hard drive, all of it, to an external USB attached hard drive.

    Once you have that you can play with Windows 10 since it will be easy to recover if things go bad or you don't like it.

    No, do NOT install it IF the laptop is you primary/only system.

    REMEMBER THIS: Windows 10 is in BETA and EVERY build breaks something for someone.

    Wait until Win 10 SP1 is released.

    Windows 10 works "fairly" for most of us, but if you're not experienced in such things you may have a big headache.

    I will erase my USB stick and use LiLi to burn the iso. And when it expires, I'll install Ubuntu again, then I will need to be away from my laptop so i can not be startled. !
