Why it's not too difficult to run Windows 10 Technical Preview

THANKS WINCUSTOMIZE!!!

Thursday, October 9, 2014 by BigDogBigFeet | Discussion: Personal Computing

Well I've searched and searched and searched and joined Windows Insider Program and all to no avail there is no download and install available to me of Windows 10 technical preview.

Why do they make it soooo hard.

 

It's working and auto activated and will update.

I have very little trouble with VMWare, I find it much easier to use than VirtualBox. But it doesn't have a free version, only a trial.

Ok...re-installed VB. Deleted the 64 bit preview. Have to wait on dl'ing 32 bit version. Tried last night and got as far as 1.2 gigs then a popup says windows detected another computer on this network with the same IP address, download failed. Gonna keep at it. I'll let ya know. 

Un installed Avast and installed Avira in its place. Went to PCmag website to check out different free AV's and Avira was their top choice. Anyway...I dl'd the 32 version Win 10 and it seemed to install correctly but when I hit start it starts creating the process and hangs. Its still doin' it even now, an hour later.

When you setup VM you need to make sure you have the right internet setting  established.  Try either NAT or Bridge.  Bridge worked for me. 

Also look at the advanced setting there and make sure it doesn't day Deny(it's the default).  I set mine for all.

It caused so many problems. For one I couldn't shutdown the laptop, wouldn't reboot, couldn't kill the processes or the .exe. Always getting access denied. Found a way to finally get rid of Avast AND bitdefender leftovers by deleting them in safe mode after going into msconfig and stopping processes there. For now its uninstalled until I clean up the HD. Too much on it and not enough room for other stuff. Hopefully after that.

I have a question:

What Stardock Apps should I install on my Win 10 Tech Preview??

So far I've tried Object Dock 2.

 

Suggestions?  Have you tried it first?

One assumes you actually had enough space for a virtual machine in the first place

My link would have seen me disabling the AV while setting up the VM ....not looking for an alternative to run in its place [also probably causing an issue]....
