    My expectations might have been too high for this build. Will leave it until next build.

    In 30+ years, I've never had a log-on password on my personal home computer, and being forced to have one now is a real deal breaker.

    How can I get rid of that nuisance? (also known as a pain in the arse)

    After customizing Windows 8.1 to my own liking, I can now work with it as easily as my favorite, XP-Pro-SP3, and I'd like to be able to do the same thing with Windows 10..... if not, I'll never be a ten-fan.

    Cheers Mates!

    This will keep you from having to log in at start up. However it will need some tweeking to keep you from having to reenter after sleep mode I think. Good luck to you and enjoy your 10 install

    One other bug has followed through a couple of builds now. My two 3TB hard drives spin down all the time even tho I have them set to never in the power menu. I thought it was just me but there is a large number of people complaining about it on the Win10 feedback forum.

    I use NoSleepHD v 2.0 with auto startup with the timer every 4 minutes. Pain to have to wake a drive every 10 minutes just to look at a file.
    Hi John, what do you consider a large number remembering that over a million and a half folks are using the TP windows 10. . .

    Someone had acknowledged this problem in build 9879 (which I had too) but I'm also now seeing it in 9926.

    I used the NETPLWIZ command to get the automatic sign on every time I would boot up to the desktop. What I saw in 9879 and now in 9926 is 2 Account Pictures when the Welcome Screen flashes before loading the desktop. It was not seen prior to this change only after I applied the change.

    So are others seeing this too? Is there a fix, or has someone reported this issue to MS? (I suspect they would frown on this kind of "hack")

    I have been experiencing these 2 bugs so far:

    Same here, but NoSleepHD in administrator mode crash after minimized. It seems that changing spin down setting from 0 minutes to 999 works.

    There is a thread in Microsoft forums with a similar bug since November ( Build 9879 turning HDD on and off continuously - Microsoft Community )

    My image appears 2 times, and once in a while, autologin doesn't work and says my password is wrong.

    EDIT: Autologin stopped working at all, so I reverted Netplwiz changes. Sysinternals Autologon.exe is working for now ( live.sysinternals.com ) (I think it works doing the autologin registry method). Your username is your Microsoft account email address.

So after the fiasco that was the 9879 folder crashing issue and the completely botched update fix+ I had almost given up on the whole tech preview things. Recently after about a month of not being able to even boot to any of the 3 tech preview...
