    I just clean installed Win7 and used one of my TechNet Pro keys, authenticated perfectly fine.

    189 updates (5 failed) and then friggin 157809 Update processes during the reboot....

    I left and got some dinner lol.

    Going to try to upgrade to 10, let's see what happens....

    It's this model machine: Gateway Laptop NE56R10u Intel Celeron B820 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit - Newegg.com
    I'm sure you already know it, but just in case, you can bypass loading all that Windows 7 stuff by just starting the Windows 10 install and feeding it the Windows 7 Product Key.

    If you're going through all this just to test, you have more patience than I!

    Yeah, I know, but when Edwin mentioned win 7 I had to try the hard way lol.

    I have done several VM installs of WinX using Win7 keys already, all of which are now tied to my MSA.

    Plus, this is actually not my machine, but a machine of a friend's mother, what ex-daughter in law had encrypted the drive that was originally in it (which happens to contain a lot of baby pics of her granddaughter).

    So I popped my drive in there and installed Win7 just to be funny - and see if it still takes normal upgrade methods because it is a TechNet key instead of retail...

    Oh, and lay in looked at the machine it said it had failed to install updates and was reverting, stage 3 of 3.

    Will be looking at it soon.

    Yep, they work! I did that awhile back with one of mine.

    I bummed!
    Tried everything possible to get this Build installed, nada!

    I blame it on my hardware; a number of Builds ago, I could set up and run Mixed Reality Portal, now, in Build 17025, it tells me my hardware is not compatible.

    Rats!!!

    Me too - and I verified that individual IP Fast builds installed directly don't like using Win7 keys for registering and authentication, but using a released version (TH, TH2, CU, FCU) do.

    But In all of those I installed directly to the VM. It's been a long while since I installed 7 and then tried to upgrade from Microsoft. if that fails, I'll try upgrading via FCU USB drive....

    I never bothered with Mixed reality, so I have it removed before installing an IP build over FCU.

    have you tried removing anything you know no longer works after installing FCU before attempting 17063 upgrade from FCU?

    The Windows 7 machine only got about 40 updates, 147 still need installing. Upon booting up it said only 7 needed to be installed, so I installed and let it reboot - and now it shows 147. So I checked history - yeah, a good many failed.

    And I already have all the latest Gateway drivers for that machine for Win7 installed as well.

    This is gonna be fun lol.

    Well, I might be the minority here, as I hear so many complaining, and that isn't a shot at you guys who are, as you have the right to. But for me, Timeline is working brilliantly, and I think it's a stroke of genius to integrate it os wide. I realize there are several apps that don't use it yet, as some were complaining about, but considering that it is a test app, and not released to the public yet, I'm not sure why they were expecting? I can see huge potential in this feature. And it is already very convenient and useful for me.
    This build loaded very easily for me, and I have not run into hardly any problems with it at all. Everything I use on a daily bases works, and works well. It's very fast, and I haven't received any warnings or problem popups as some have said. So to answer hypsieGypsie's question from a while back, this build is running very solidly for me right now.

    Sorry to hear that, Edwin. Hopefully you'll get something new soon.

    Good to hear! Timeline is indeed a great feature and will only get better with time.
