    Windows 10 Tech Preview Tips


    I have Windows 7 Home Premium x64 on my Laptop, and 8.1 x64 on our desktop. Any tips on what I should do? I don't have a USB drive or a backup CD. Should I not install it?

    If you install it and you do not like it you do not have a way to go back to what you have. You can also install it with a USB memory stick 4 GB or larger. You can also do an in place install but a fast internet connection is desired. Some of our members had several hours downloading the ISO as it is almost 4 GB. But without a backup of your present system I would not install W10.

    I think I will like it. It's just so risky. It scares me.

    You also cannot install it with a CD it takes a DVD.

    Should I install it on the 8.1 desktop, since its the newest? I canceled the installation on my Windows 7 laptop.

    Do you have a way to restore the desktop in case the install does not work? If not I would not install W10 as it is beta software. The factory restore partition will not work once you install W10 on the desktop.

    I don't have a DVD or USB to reset. But, it has a reset feature.

    That is what I am trying to tell you it will break that reset feature that is why you need another way to reset it.
