    What if - I need to reinstall??


    Will win 10 be with a backup? Can I order a backup reinstall disc? If I need to reinstall at a later date, is there a link?

    or you could just make a recovery drive from the control panel - recovery - create a recovery drive

    the info you posted requires the ISO anyway and has to many NOT needed steps

    the issue people have is they do not use a format FAT32 USB and copy the ISO contents to a NTFS formatted USB and it will not boot UEFI

    thus the need for rufus and diskpart

    sorry, yes that was my thinking, a stick drive is the best way. I can make it label it and keep it safe. I have a recovery stick for 8.1 and a media installation stick for 8.1 by the pc.

    windows 10 recovery makes a OS ONLY recovery drive.. No need for the recovery partition anymore
    10 creates a reconstruct.wim instead of an install.wim - with a completely different layout.

    you can capture any program or customizations into a .ppkg file stored on the C drive using the user state migration tool
    then your programs and settings will be carried over into the recovery

    I am still in the process of testing the recovery and customizations - been doing a lot of very interesting reading about the processes now used for windows 10 > much different then windows 8.1

    once you create the provisioning package ( .ppkg ) you can add the customizations and setting to any prepped install.wim
    or so it seems to read

    looks like i'll have to add a few lines of code to my Imageprep script for use with windows 10

    not having used win 10 at all, you lost me on the word 'create' - but I am going to immediately install 10 on my laptop firstly when available, and play with it on there before even attempting an upgrade on my big pc.

    refer to post 2 to download the latest preview
    double click the ISO file to MOUNT it as a drive in windows 8.1 (or right click and select burn to DVD)
    and then copy it's contents to a formatted Fat32 USB

    the run setup on your laptop (DVD or USB) if windows 7 or windows 8 / 8.1

    or boot from USB or DVD and do a clean install of windows 10
