    Hello, All. I have a question for all you knowledgeable folk. I just acquired an old PC that used to have Vista on it. I was going to use it as a home server and was wondering if it is legal to put an insider build on it or does MS frown on that?

    Thanks in advance.
    I think you are under impression that Insider versions are free, and activated. No problem in putting an Insider version on but you still need a licence to activate it as with any release version.

    Anyway, it is a really bad plan to use an Insider version as a Home Server anyway as they get updates more frequently and are more prone to serious bugs. Put a stable release version on it or you are asking for trouble.

    As a Home Server, you would probably be better off using Linux if it is just to be a file server.

    Of course, my wife used to consider that "No" was a flexible concept e.g. if she wanted new shoes and I said No, she would buy them anyway and justify it as "I could tell you meant Yes by the way you said No" - LOL.
    Oh I've been there, especially this last one (#4) was an expert to use single word sentences meaning something totally different than the word she said. Luckily I got Woman - German - Woman (Frau - Deutsch - Frau) dictionary as a birthday present from a mate who knew her well, it made mutual understanding a bit easier.

    Interestingly, I joined Insider in PRO N this morning and got the update immediately - no day or so wait as usual.

    Yep!
    Understanding women can be like:

    Buying a nice new piece of tech,
    and the user manual was originally written in Chinese,
    then translated to ancient Babylonian, with Bing Translate,
    and finally translated to English with Google Translate

    In the Registry at Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel create a new DWORD named EnableSamplesPage and set it's value to 1
    The affects are immediate.
    Needs to be DWORD32, 64 doesn't work.

    Some Definitions:

    TRUE = a state where something is considered ON often also represented as 1
    FALSE = a state where something is considered OFF often also represented as 0
    BIT = 1 single switch in memory that has 2 states TRUE or FALSE
    BYTE = 8 consecutive BIT (8-bit can be represented as one HEX value)
    WORD = 2 consecutive BYTE (16-bit often represented as 2 HEX-values)
    DWORD = 2 consecutive WORD (32-bit often represented as 4 HEX-values)
    QWORD = 4 consecutive WORD (64-bit often represented as 8 HEX values)

    HEX-value = a number that has base 16 (represented as numbers 0...9 and letters A...F)
    BINARY-value = a number that has base 2 (0 or 1)


    ...and the list goes on and on....

    Sorry, I just had to... :)

    Since 1607, all Hyper-V virtual machines I have used for testing have always found Insider build directly after clean install, as soon as I have opted in.

    Anyway, did you have Media Feature Pack installed before starting to download Insider upgrade? I had it installed, would be interesting to know if you upgrade to latest Insider build without Media Feature Pack, can it still be installed afterwards? I mean, those packs are usually only working for precise Windows version, for instance W10 N 1703 needs the Media Feature Pack for W10 N 1703, can't use packs for earlier versions.

    Media Feature Pack for N edition of Windows 10 Version 1703 (April 2017)

    And which one appears to be incorrect?

    Easy to miss-read if not working with such values on daily basis. Don't take my, maybe a bit sarcastic, comment personally. Was not directed at you or anybody else. I just had to get it out of my system. :)
