Windows 10: Windows 10 Build 10240 for PC is now available

  1.    30 Jul 2015 #1761

    Download finished, $Windows.~BT is 4.39 GB on disk size, $Windows.~WS only 40 GB. No offer to do actual upgrade yet. I'll let it simmer overnight and see what happens in the morning.

    I am using Malwarebytes Pro (paid for) and Widows Defender, this seems to be more than enough to be secure, but I'm sure others will disagree.

    EDIT: I also raised the firewall security level on my modem/router from low to moderate security. Very few people even take this step.
    How is it you know folks do not take the step you mention in your edit. . .or are you just assuming. . .

    Thanks for reply. Sorry I meant Windows 10 Home version. I just upgrade over Windows 10 pro IP build 10240. Will this become RTM once upgraded using Media creating tool?

    Are you going to quit the Windows Insider Program? If so, you should be able to do so go to Windows Update>Advanced Options>Stop Insider Builds.

    You may need to reinstall Windows Home Premium and then upgrade to Windows 10 to get things right again.

    Yours is the second post I've seen about this "problem".

    I have no idea, that's uncharted territory.

    I upgraded from Windows 7 Home to Insider build. So at this point Windows 10 is activated. This is how microsoft want you to do it. Now I want to stop insider build to get Windows 10 Home version. Only correct way of upgrading is through ISO install either fresh or upgrade to home version. I think this is the way to go to Home version that will keep activation. If this does not work I will reinstall Windows 7 home using Packardbell recovery DVD's.

    I remember reading somewhere here that someone did this. They selected "Stop Receiving Insider Builds", and computer did several restarts, then everything was as it should be. He did this BEFORE 7/29. But, I could not tell you the thread I read it in...so, I could be mistaken - there's just been too much information over the past few days.

    Bad luck or a slow connection I would say. I upgraded 4 PC's all at the same time in less than 2 hours.

    I think I posted this already. A clean install worked for me. I am using the windows 10 32 bit system. My system activated without any issue.
    . . .you did. . .

    Is it weird that I miss the rush that comes with expecting a new "insider" build of Win10? I need my fix, damn it!

    I tried that it didn't work still asked for product key. I will restore Windows 7 home using recovery dvds. At least I tried do you think i should upgrade through media creating tool instead of iso method i created instead.
    That's up to you. Media creation tool worked great for me. Running setup.exe from your ISO may be faster though.

    I plan on doing almost the same thing on my desktop. I have a dual boot setup on two separate drives. My main drive (SSD) that I upgraded my Win 8.1 to Win 10 TP. Drive two (HDD) Has Win 10 TP clean installed and not a upgrade. Win 8.1 was the core version and I upgraded to 10 Pro. I want to drop out of the insider program on my SSD. I'm sure I'll have to switch to the home version when I do. The Win 10 install on the HDD I want to stay on the insider program. I have a image of Windows 8.1 just before the Win 10 upgrade if I need it.

    I think the Media Creation Tool might also use or do something to the Windows~BT folder. My folder had 4.9 GB in it, then after running the MCT it only had 40 something MB's in it. Just a guess though? That's when I gave up and just used the MCT to do the upgrade. When I did my upgrades I used the "Upgrade this PC now" option. It skips creating any install media and just does a straight up upgrade. No rebooting or having to boot from install media.
    That's how I had to upgrade my Lenovo tablet. The GWX kept telling me my Intel Graphics Media Accelerator was incompatible.
