    Win 10 Reservation on small tablets


    Morning all,

    Has anyone with a small tablet (7 or 8") received the app to reserve win 10 yet

    So far I haven't so I am thinking tablet is not yet compatible, so wondering if anyone else has

    Mine is the 8" Linx with Win8.1 for Bing

    Hi Paul,

    You post prompted me to have a look at my tablet - a 32GB device which Tesco were selling cheap (and seem to have stopped now) a few months ago.

    You probably knew this, but just in case not (or in case some reads this thread who doesn't know it), the first thing I remembered is that these small WIMBoot tablets don't download any updates except Critical ones from Windows Update.
    From:
    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-GB/.../dn594399.aspx
    To save drive space, we’ve limited offering only the following types of updates from Windows Update to WIMBoot devices with 32GB or less of storage space:
    • Critical updates that keep the system or programs running.
    • Security updates and security advisory updates.

    Users can still manually download and install updates from the Microsoft Download Center.
    So I went off to the Tutorial to get the links to manually download update KB3035583.

    But having just installed the update I'm still not seeing the icon. I'm not sure how quickly to expect it to appear, having just installed the update (and rebooted) though?

    Thanks for the info, I didn't realise only certain updates happened on the tablet, I have checked updates and everything it shows has been updated, looks like I need to manually do some more

    battery is nearly flat at the moment (forgot to charge last night), so will check the tutorial out once its charged

    Yours may be different to mine, but I suspect it's well worth a check through the installed updates list when it's charged up.

    Just had a check of updates, I already have the KB3035583

    I remember reading these devices weren't compatible with the earlier TP, not sure on recent
    looks like a waiting game to see when 10 is ready for them

    WIMboot tablets may have to wait a while due to internal storage. Some tabs only have 16gb storage and loading a new OS on sparce storage has proven to be a problem. You will probably have to do a clean install which is why the upgrade icon is not showing up.

    Thanks for the info and welcome to the forums

    I am not in any rush on the tablet, waiting for changes that are happening to 10 after release anyway

    hopefully some new from MS about tablet upgrades/clean installs will come out soon

    The reservation is now available on my tablet, no issues reported

    going to wait before updating it though, need to test tablet mode on another device

    EDIT : changed my mind, win 10 has been reserved

    That's good news. I'll try mine to see if that offers me a Reservation.

    I've run all the updates I can on my tablet. No reservation icon yet though.
