    Personally I like the idea of a locally stored PIN but again dislike being required during the installation. This was a VM screen print and I eventually was able to enter a PIN but really should not have needed ti - especially as you have to enter a Microsoft account (unless you use an offline account) w/ passport on the previous step. If nothing else, you should be able to go back and use a local account.

    This is a truly iconic build - nothing but blooming new icons. ICON obsession is so tedious.

    Even though a PIN is in fact more secure than a password stored in the cloud your should not be REQUIRED to make one. Just my opinionAttachment 268032
    A locally stored PIN is only secure if your PC has a TPM module

    Hi folks
    I always use OFFLINE account creation so the pin thing never bothers me.

    but why on earth do so many people care about icons --who really is bothered with these things anyway --- I haven't yet seen a single post here (apart from a previous one on mine) if anybody is going to try and attempt to use this build with the evaluation build of VMWare to see if VMWare VM's and HYPER-V VM's can be run concurrently.

    Most people using these builds are quite competant enough to have a go with that type of test especially as the evaluation Workstation 20H1 edition is free and doen't expire until Oct 2020.

    C'mon peeps test something REAL -- forget about those stupid icons etc etc.

    anyway I'm going to try this out this morning on a physical machine . 2 VM's - not a VM within a VM although I'll test nesting VM's too later.


    Two defects :

    VMWare this new release still won't work with HYPER-V enabled


    Windows 10 Insider Preview Fast Build 19569.1000 - February 20-fail.png


    HYPER-V VM - can't adjust screen resolution of the VM from within the VM -- here's FEDORA live kde as a VM in system settings -- notpossible to alter monitor reso;ution. (that could be a fault in the VM so leaving that one).

    I HYPER-V VM - can't adjust screen resolution of the VM from within the VM -- here's FEDORA live kde as a VM in system settings -- notpossible to alter monitor reso;ution. (that could be a fault in the VM so leaving that one).


    ============================================================================
    f VMware does not work with Hyper-V enabled then you are not running the 20H1 Tech Preview. They work together for me very well and in fact, I find I'm spending more time in Windows - although Ubuntu at least works OK. I have more work to do getting Linux mutlbooting working - looks like I will need multiple GRUB installations which means I have to expand myl EFI system partition etc etc. This is only moderately annoying as in the work I'm doing I fully expect to have to re-install OS's.

    Hi there
    @martyfelker

    I definitely WAS running VMWare 20H1 !!!

    I'll do the whole thing again tomorrow (Tuesday) right from scratch on brand new re-formatted HDD's so there's no possibility of any "OS or Application data Cross contamination"

    - Brand new Windows install, then 20H1 VMWare install and then I'll try creating a NEW VMWare VM --It's possible because I was using a previously created VMWare VM that the system failed.

    There's so many variables in this that all sorts of scenarios might work on some systems and fail on others -- however I'm usually pretty good when it comes to testing things -- even when working on different projects which aren't related to these sorts of problems I get asked to test stuff for them !!! --they always say that even if everybody else gets positive results --they want to give it to me as I an always able to break things nobody else can !!!!

    Having an early night now for a change so tomorrow will have another go with this stuff. !!

    G'nite everybody !!!

    Cheers

    Running both a shared VM of this build (local account) and a remote connection (no local accounts are allowed) in a Gen 2 Hyper-V VM using VMware 20H1. I'll forgo the screenprint - I guess you can trust me (or not). Since I assume you meet the minimum VMware standards for 20H1 viz

    Software Requirements

    • Windows 10 20H1 from Windows insider program. Minimum build number: 19041.

    Hardware Requirements

    • Intel Haswell or newer CPU
    • AMD Bulldozer or newer CPU

    I can only suggest you ask for help on the VMware Community Forum and hope for the best.

    Your Release Preview? You fired it up and got the current slow ring?
    No, one was on fast ring and other on skip ahead. Changed skip ahead to slow ring. So now my fast ring VM is on latest dev release (this) and slow ring VM(prev. skip ahead) is on 19041.84.

    My main machine has been on release preview since I got it about a year ago. It's on whatever 1909 build is the latest right now.

    My point is that I haven't had any upgrade issues, like getting stuck or Windows misbehaving, as of lately on none of the rings/VMs/machines.

    I've actually installed a couple of hundred machines, with latest official Windows 10, on machines of various ages, the last 3 months. They've all worked flawlessly.
