Windows 10: Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10576 for PC Insider
Finnish but not finished
Done this already on several machines, in-place upgrade from ISO (launching the setup from previous build desktop) never asks the key, clean install with ISO burned to DVD or Flash drive asks but tells also clearly what to do:
Nice, about time that comment was added.
@Kari look at his specs, he needs 32 bit Home version for his tablet(Acer Iconia W4 tablet running Windows 10 Home x32) and the only iso versions out there are Pro, that's why he's even being asked for the key. But what you mentioned is the only time I saw a request for a key during the whole installation process this time. It's getting much more friendlier, then being asked 3 times.
Installed 10576 in place update and used it for a while it worked fine . I had Chrome working on my last session in 10576 and set as my default browser it worked fine and so did everything else also but Chrome wont open now .
More importantly the Start button rt click jump list wont work and start menu wont come up and task bar search wont work .
Start button wont do anything and task bar search wont work but they worked fine for a while until I went in and out of this new Insider build on this dual boot configuration with RTM ,Win 10 RTM hdd partition works fine .
I'm in 10576 now using IE 11 it's working .
UPDATE / EDIT : FWIW it was only the 10576 standard user acct I use when I'm on the web that was screwed up the Admin acct was fine.
I deleted the Standard 10576 user acct and made another one 99% of the data was backed up in the RTM NTFS partition so I was able to retrive it ,it's all fine now along with a necessary new Chrome install (that got screwed up also in the user acct and I was able to import my book marks into the new Standard user acct from my adminn acct . No Idea why that happened but it's fine ( for now ) ☻
FWIW I left a summary of this occourance and my resolution in the feedback app for the MS smiley people
lastly I did the in place update from the std user acct maybe that had somethig to do with this ? OTOH no problems the last time I forgit to log into the admin acct to install a new test build via windows update . :shrug:

Outside the Box
Installed latest iteration, only problem noted so far, New Outlook.Com needs resetting as all e-mail contacts have been removed.
No hardship there as extras have been added to the site.
Finally got here in the Mid-Hudson Valley around 8 AM EST. In about 10 minutes it is up to 60% downloading. Hope this build works as well as previous. I have had good experiences in all of the builds so far.........
zilch showing here..
Funny thing happened to me on the way to forum. As I was not able to activate my Insider version yet, I applied for and received Insider status on my 8.1 - 10 conversion. I expected new version to appear on it but it didn't, still at 10240. Than I switched back to newly installed 10565, still not activated and 10576 started downloading immediately.
Downloading as we speak. In mean time I obtained Genuine ticket from other installation and will try it when this update finishes. If it works, back to normal 10240 installation I will go on other disk. Have a nice fresh backup for it.
I will wait for November 2nd for the update to the RTM. Just a few days away.
Is there a place where it says: I don't have a key? I clicked on that and Win 10 installed and activated.
Edit: Oops! Kari beat me to it.
Microsoft Releases PC build 10565 to Insiders in the Slow ring today.
