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

  1.    15 Jul 2015 #300

    ok so just installed mine.. Start Menu crashes after being open and scrolling on tiles.

    I hope this isn't the final 29th version, we will have a lot of mad customers.

    I have a i7 ASUS Zenbook, running with the latest NVIDIA graphics update as of tonight.

    SSD so no performance issues. but this start menu crash has been there since 10162.

    There is NO WAY to turn on RAPID MODE for the 850Pro. With the 840Pro, I was able to run an earlier version, turn on Rapid, then update to 4.6. Unfortunately, no version except 4.6 recognizes the 850Pro. 4.6 recognizes the 850Pro but will not run under Win10. Hence my nice new 850Pro is just sitting on the table next to me until Samsung updates the Magician software.
    ok. sorry. i thought it would work the same way i got my 840 to work. sorry to hear that. but it won't be too long, hopefully. cheers.

    I was having the same luck as @BunnyJ & @groze not recieving the update so I restored build 10166 from a Macrium image & build 10240 is downloading now.

    How you get the dark theme in setting? Is it still a regedit or is there now an actual setting?

    Oh that's positive. I'm in Canberra and don't have any update showing yet. I might reboot / restart the update service and see if I can wake it up somehow...!

    I upgraded from 10166 with the Dark theme still enabled which used the same regedit provided by Edwin in post #304.

    VM and laptop both finished.

    VM took and hour and a half doing upgrade from Windows Update.
    Laptop took 45 minutes doing upgrade from ISO.

    i'm not sure that this is the rtm. i actually feel that there will be at least a couple more builds before the 29th. i think this is the first rtm candidate. almost everything works fine, and i haven't experienced the problems several others have reported on this site, but there is one big thing that is bothering me, and that is it takes twice as long to restart as it use to. i use to restart completely in 14 seconds, os to os, and now it takes 28 seconds. that is a huge difference in a system which is supposed to be getting rid of bugs and problems. so that is my chief concern at the moment. everything else is working well.
    it took 12 seconds to shut down, where it use to shut down in seven seconds. it took 7 seconds to start up, where it use to start up in 4-6 seconds. so start up is very close, and the others are significantly worse.

    Build 10240 up and running ! :)

    So far the only problem I could detect is that Avast Firewall doesn't start.
