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

  1.    15 Jul 2015 #270

    Perhaps this is RTM since I got video driver update that only works with 10240 and none of the earlier builds.

    tell me you're joking please,
    and all my pain in the last few months of testing results in this:

    i understand .. I will wait for the 29th and just live with not being activated
    thanks buddy
    i don't blame you I wouldn't go through all that crap again either, I'm sure they'll figure out a better way.

    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'm running an 840 with magician 4.6 in win 10, with rapid mode ON. why are you waiting?

    I wonder if they will let this one get dry behind the ears before they come out with another.

    If it works like bit-torrent, the more people that have done the update, the faster it goes for the next guy. Also takes the load off of the Microsoft server. You get parts of what you need from other Windows 10 insiders that already updated or are updating. I think its a really good move, and about time.
    that only works if all of those users keep their client open and uploading.

    I went from Windows 7 to 10074 > 10122 > 10130 > 10158 > 10159 > 10163 > 10166 >10240. Never had to enter a key and always activated automatically. I got new keys several times automatically.

    Yes, same deal with bit torrent. If your PC is off your not helping anybody.

    This installed super fast! Is this the RTM build, that is the question.
    . . .why. . .nothing was said about it being RTM, it would appear that it is just another insider build. . .nothing more, nothing less. . .:)

    Mine started about an hour ago. Downloads 10 to 15% at a chunk, waits a few minutes and then does it again. Last I looked it was at 50%. Have a 4 Meg download pipe.
