    Windows 10 TP x64 (9841) in Fusion @ Mac Pro 5.1 OSX 10.10


    Hi all, nice to meet you!

    Just installed Windows 10 TP x64 in Fusion on a MP 5.1 (2012) running OSX 10.10. using:

    - 4 processors
    - 2048MB RAM
    - 1024MB Video Ram

    Very, very easy install and this VM runs like clockwork! Very happy to preview Windows 10 in a very safe way!

    At first glance it looks great and works very snappy!

    BTW who the h*ll stole my Maverick nickname from the EightForums!

    Cheers

    Updated my Windows 10 TP in a VM to Build 9879 without any glitsh. Running very smooth and snappy atm and no issues at all. Overnight I'll let Windows perform it's scheduled maintenance and auto updates.

    VM's are the best playgrounds imaginable!

    My first ever BSOD in a VM to date!

    Tweaked the assigned memory to the VM from 2GB to 4GB!

    Hi I have Build 9879 running under Bootcamp on a MacBook Air 2013 fairly stably at the moment but I have followed the advice from Paul Thurrott to uninstall 4 of the updates:

    "The four updates you need to uninstall are KB3019269, KB3018943, KB3016725, KB3016656, so start with the first one—KB3019269—by copying and pasting that text into the search box in the Installed Updates control panel. Then right-click it and choose Uninstall from the pop-up menu."

    Update KB3019269 in particular was associated with frequent File Explorer crashes. I cant say the system is completely stable as I haven't been using it as my primary machine but it is after all more of an alpha than a beta. I am on the Fast Track for Previews, although that appears to be irrelevant now as there will possibly be no more for the TP, certainly this year, and possibly none once the Consumer Preview drops.

    Still maintaining the TP in a VM to be on the safe side.

    I've been running TP as primary OS (through bootcamp) since October. I did not need to un-install any updates - works fine. I had no explorer crashes and only BSOD right at the start when shutting down which was long ago fixed. I'm running 9901 in VM which also works fine although I've not spent so much time on it.

    "Two facts we do know for sure, though: First, if you install build 9901 you won't be able to upgrade it to the next build -- you'll have to re-install from an ISO. Second, Microsoft isn't overly concerned about people getting their hands on this latest version. On Sunday, company spokesman Gabe Aul tweeted "How could we be upset about lots of people wanting to try our new stuff? We'd prefer you stick to official builds though." Cue the conspiracy theorists.""

    Hi there

    I'm using VMWARE -- I'm not getting BSOD's but I can't add USB devices -- if a USB device is connected at power on - it recognizes it but connecting afterwards the VM shows the USB device is connected (for example a USB stick) but the computer doesn't see it.

    (Build 9879 -- I can't install build 9901 at all --get CPU error !!! at power on )

    Cheers

    I have the setting "Ask what to do" for all USB devices. When firing the VM you'll be asked what to do with the USB devices it finds.

    Cheers...

    EDIT: Build 9901 is a leaked version, there'll not be offered any additional updates, so waste of time imho!
