Installation Guide for Windows 10 Technical Preview
Windows 10 Technical Preview is a preview version dedicated to enterprise and insiders, and not to the general public for home use; it is an unstable and incomplete version than the version that will be made public in the second half of 2015 and this could result in the loss of your data or other problems which neither we nor Microsoft we be considered responsible: in other words, if you want install it, you can do it at your own risk.
To download Windows 10 must register at this address. Once downloaded the ISO fit your computer or tablet from the link at the bottom of the article (choosing from the 32-Bit and 64-Bit), you will have several options to install and test the Preview of Windows 10. Do not go down in detail, but just give some ideas on the various methods of installation, since it is assumed to be tested almost exclusively by geeks.
The easiest way is undoubtedly the one that provides a clean installation on a computer or a tablet formatted (you can also format with the Windows installer 10). For this choice you’ll need a forklift or you’ll have to sacrifice your only car. You can start the installation by loading the contents of the ISO to a DVD or a USB drive with this guide from which then you will have to boot.
As a second option, always sacrificing your only car, you can mount the ISO of Windows 10 with the appropriate command of Windows 8 and start the setup directly from the latter. During the preliminary stages you will be asked if you want to store programs, apps and documents, only documents or anything (almost equivalent to a format, in which case the entire contents of the old C: \ will be stored in a folder C: \ Windows. Alte then be retrieved after installation). But be careful, because you might not be able to complete the installation if your operating system to start is in Italian, in which case you must follow this procedure.
You can also create a partition, through gesione disk or third party programs, and install Windows 10 in it: in this way you will get a practical dual-boot system that will allow you to choose from, each time the PC, if you access one or all ‘other operating system. We tested this procedure on our Surface Pro 3 and is probably one of the most valid.
Same thing is true of the partition if you have no way to add a second HDD to your PC.
Another solution involves the installation painless Windows 10 in a virtual machine, for example in Hyper-V.
You can create a VHD in which to install Windows 10, a kind of virtual partition. Although seemingly one of the solutions is less invasive, does not allow you to install the frequent updates from a build to another Windows 10, and for this we feel sconsigliarla.
If you have Windows 7, you can upgrade for free to Windows 10 through Windows Update by following this guide.
