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

  1.    15 Jul 2015 #230

    My feeling is that this build is the one that is being sent to manufacturers. We will still be getting updates that will probably be getting rolled into a Day One patch when July 29th comes around.

    Yeah, and this was a update from an OEM Windows 7 install, now it's a Retail install. Is this maybe the RTM?
    I did a clean install on a new SSD. I removed the original HDD with 8.1.1 that came from the lappy.

    I've given up on this particular build. I know that 10166 works just fine and this should as well.

    Now I'll wait for the 29th and get my upgrade then or a day or so after that.
    trying making a dual boot

    make a partition with 50-60gb, clean install 10166 iso on it, then go check for updates, if it works means you just have to reinstall your windows for it to work, sometimes it works for me this way

    Yeah, I do believe you have to click the Stop receiving preview builds button to opt out. So we are still insiders, right?

    One new thing I noticed during setup was having the choice to choose "Photos", "Edge", "Music" & "Movies & TV" as defaults, when I unchecked "Edge" for example "Internet Explorer 11" remained the default browser.

    Also while logged in with my MSA and checking my "Sync" settings they remained switched off for a change, they are usually switched on by default when switching to an MSA.

    My biggest problem on launch day is somehow converting all my EXTRA licenses into valid Win10 licenses. Since I had Technet back in the day, I have 12 Win7 licenses (I wonder what happens to Win7 Home Premium licenses?), 5 Win8 licenses (if you count the N versions), and 4 copies of Win8.1 ( 2 Ns and two Pros). I also have a few computers that are using the same license number since Technet licenses let me activate up to 10 computers. I really need only 3 Pro licenses any more out of all of these, but the more I get, the better.
    I have got a feeling that I will be installing and upgrading a strictly bare bones OS then doing the upgrade to Win10, grabbing the Win10 license number, and do it all over again for all of of these old licenses. That might include going from Win8 to Win8.1 THEN upgrading to Win10 . Geez.
    Fortunately I have an 850Pro 256GB SSD waiting for Samsung magician to update to Win10. I can use that for quick loads along with a USB3.0 stick with Win7, 8, and 8.1 installed on it with the Win7 USB tool from MS.

    I would expect a clean install to be Retail.

    Yes, it is the Pro version. I didn't want to use the enterprise.
