    Solved my Mail app problems so far. Hadn't even been able to open it all day until after Upgrade.

    I don't notice any problems with OneDrive but was really glad it preserved the OneDrive folder I'd moved to my Storage partition with most User folders relocated into it. This is amazing in-place upgrading when I was expecting Onedrive upset from what I'd read.

    Confidence UP when an Upgrade can perform better than Clean Install.

    Downloaded and started installation of build 9879. Computer showed "Installing." Came back a little later to find the computer had tried to restart, but hung up on a blue screen saying "Your PC needs to be repaired. I cannot boot computer now. Screen looks like Attachment 8245
    I tried to boot from installation disk and could not. Help! Windows 10 was running great before this.

    If you have not tried this, when the computer shows the welcome install screen, press the Shift+F10 key to use the command prompt.


    bootrec /fixboot
    bootrec /fixmbr

    if that still fails, try again and do this

    bootrec /rebuildbcd
    bootrec /fixboot
    bootrec /fixmbr

    Good luck
    I can't even boot to the Welcome screen. Everytime I try to reboot I get the blue screen I show.

    I am still not understanding the difference in this latest TP between the Enterprise edition and the regular (Professional?).

    Also, when installing the Enterprise edition, is it necessary to insert a serial number during installation?



    Thanks
    This is a good explanation of the differences, from the horses mouth. They are items the average user can live without.

    You shouldn't get the blue screen with the windows preview usb install disk or install dvd.


    I am talking about the windows setup welcome screen.

    It looks like you need to do this

    bootrec /rebuildbcd (hit enter)
    bootrec /fixboot (hit enter)
    bootrec /fixmbr (hit enter)

    Type exit, hit enter, hit the x windows screen and reboot without the install disk. See if windows 10 preview will start. Now if you get error message that won't rebuild or cannot find windows 7. You will need to manually activate the windows partition using diskpart from the command prompt. I let someone else explain how to do that if you need that.



    If that doesn't work you could try a repair install from you installation disk. You may need to reinstall your software.

    Actual as a home consumer myself, some of those feature would be nice. The start screen control and Windows to go.

    OK, now I see what's going on with the greyed out Boot to Desktop option. If it's set it to use the Start Menu (the default on a fresh install), the option to Boot to Desktop is checked and greyed out. When I switched to the Start Screen it became a selectable option. It doesn't actually change until you log out and log back in again.

    If I check the option "Show Start on display.....", sign out then back in, the option to uncheck the first option under 'Start Screen" lights up to uncheck it to use and boot to the Start Screen?

    LOL! I need to know for sure because checking that and using the Start Screen messed up my 8.1 Start Screen in the first build due to synching.

    This option only becomes changeable when you toggle to the Start SCREEN UI, it remains greyed out on the Start MENU UI.

    In what way did it mess up your start screen. I am using it in the latest build with syncing on and the only difference is desktop apps are missing
    for mine I have it in sections as
    Main Media MS Office News/Sport
    four sections which are all modern apps apart from office
    in win 10 it changes very slightly to
    Main Media News/Sport
    so office has totally gone as I don't have it installed in 10 and the news/sport has moved over one section

    the layout of the modern app groups has stayed the same, the ones that are not installed in 10 are shown but have a little arrow at the bottom right of the tile ready for downloading when first clicked

    groze thanks for posting most of the bootrec commands in post #284 they come in handy for any OS if I have to use the command prompt from recovery media if startup repair, F8 fails or cannot reach the welcome/login screen.
