I tried many times to get win 10 preview to work on my Samsung RV511 laptop which easily meets all the requirements.... it hangs immediately at the logo screen when trying to install. Naturally, I could get it running in a VM but that doesn't allow the OS to use the real processing power of my laptop.
However.... I'm running Win 8.1 perfectly on this machine and so I received the 'Reserve your free upgrade' invite.
How do I discover absolutely 100% if in fact the official Win 10 will actually run on my laptop....? Logically one would imagine that if the preview (any build up to 10049 when I gave up trying) wouldn't install then the official won't install either....?.... but surely the invite software is designed to test a system is capable of running Win 10 before it issues the invite...?
I tried many times to get help from the official MS Win 10 people.... but not enough staff watching their forum to cope with 4 million potential issues and I could never get a definitive answer.
If anyone here can advise me please do
