Make sure you zip it before you upload it. Will make it much smaller file

Must say I'm impressed with build 10122 so far. No major single change that I've noticed, but a number of minor issues I'd come across have been resolved. Also, while I thought performance of Windows 10 was pretty good before now, this one seems to really fly. Very nice.

Given the upgrade process isn't working for me I'll probably stick with my 9xxx build until the production version comes along, then I'll rebuild from scratch.

So am I. I have it on an AMD machine and I have not had the publicised AMD graphics bug in Edge yet so good so far.

Does the upgrade not even work if you use an ISO?

We had issues with 10074 on a machine that would not install via any method. Never resolved it but 10122 installed no issue, go figure

I don't know, I didn't want to risk blowing away my whole OS so I didn't try that way. I didn't know you could upgrade with an iso. I just tried from inside windows - can't even remember how, probably with windows update.

There are official ISOs out there for Build 10074 (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-nz/windows/preview-iso You'll probably need to log in to get this) (and unofficial ones for 100122 http://winaero.com/blog/download-windows-10-10122-iso-images/ ) that you can download. Either make a DVD or USB stick with it on and run Setup from that and do an upgrade. Should work fine and dandy and keep all your apps and settings. I actually had to do it to upgrade from 10074 as my install was screwed up and the Windows Update upgrade would not even download.

Mine auto updated and seems ok , I have noticed however tiles sliding in from the right when a notification comes up , well half a couple of tiles as they are cut off with the task bar.

Other than that steady as she goes.

Thanks for posting this.  The 10074 build completely refuses to install on my PC, and nobody has been able to help with this, so fingers crossed, 10122 might be better

Well, that was fun!  10122 was sort of better in that after applying the ISO, the boot process would get as far as the login screen before totally locking up.  The only way out of this seemed to be to start again from scratch and do a clean install of Win7 from my original installation media.
The next problem was that Win7 refused to install to the partition where Win 10 preview was installed, even as a clean install - incorrect MBR type
So, I had to use a Linux live USB to delete all the partitions on that HDD and create a single NTFS partition before the Win7 installation could proceed
From a clean install of Win7, the online update to Win 10 preview has worked correctly

Can't ever seem to get to desktop on 10122, as well as the task bar doesn't hide in video so you've got to enable 'auto hide taskbar' which is dumb

Not loving this build
