Is 10122 going on the Tech preview site soon? Does anyone know? I tried the one mentioned above, but having problems with the ISO burning to disc. 
Doing the upgrade through updates gives me a IRQ Not Less But Equal error.

In what aspects?
My experience with 10122 has been positive, I haven't even suffered the AMD Spartan bug on my AMD powered test machine.

This is amusing - Edge browser in Windows 10 throws up this error message:

Can't reach this page

 

 

//  

window.onload = function () {

 

var url = getUrl();

 

var urlElements = document.getElementsByClassName("webpageURL");

 

for (var i = 0; i < urlElements.length; i++)

 

{

 

urlElements[i].textContent = url;

 

}

 

 

getInfo();

 

}

 

 

function getInfo()

 

{

 

//first check if user is connected to the internet

 

checkConnection();

 

 

//attach an event to detect changes in network connectivity

 

if (document.addEventListener)

 

{

 

addEventListener("offline", reportConnectionEvent, false);

 

}

 

else

 

{

 

attachEvent("onoffline", reportConnectionEvent);

 

}

 

 

//set events to fire

 

document.body.ononline = reportConnectionEvent;

 

document.body.onoffline = reportConnectionEvent;

 

}

 

 

function checkConnection()

 

{

 

var notConnected = document.getElementById("NotConnected");

 

var pageUnavailable = document.getElementById("PageUnavailable");

 

 

if (navigator.onLine) //the network connection is connected

 

{

 

document.title = "Can't reach this page"; // Need to make sure this is localized

 

 

notConnected.style.display = "none";

 

pageUnavailable.style.display = "";

 

}

 

else // no internet

 

{

 

document.title = "You're not connected";

 

 

notConnected.style.display = "";

}

 

}

 

 

function reportConnectionEvent(e)

 

{

 

if (!e) e = window.event;

 

 

if ('online' == e.type)

 

{

 

setTimeout ( "clickRefresh()", 1000 ); //using a setTimeout to account for any lag between us getting the connected event and the machine obtaining an IP

 

}

 

else if ('offline' == e.type)

 

{

 

checkConnection();

 

}

 

else

 

{

 

checkConnection();

 

}

 

}

 

 

// ]]>

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hmm, we can't reach this page.

 

Try this

 

  • Make sure you’ve got the right URL: http://www.google.com

 

 

 

 

 

 


I can load google.com just fine in Chrome on the same machine, and most other websites work OK in Edge

In that when i load up some of our work CTI applications it takes a good 10 minutes for  the PC to become operational / usable.   The previous previews were way faster ..

That is a tad long, good for coffee breaks though. Are you just testing these on a non-production machine or are you using Windows 10 Preview on production machines? The later is
not recommended. If you are testing definitely report your experience in the Insider Hub.

Icons have changed. Also, when doing something like a copy, the icon on the taskbar used to fill from left to right and now it fills from bottom to top :)

The thing that is causing me an issue on windows 10 is the 'all apps' icon on the start screen that was added on windows 8.1  (after much consumer feedback) is now gone or has been hidden.  So if you are a developer or power user and need to get access to all of the smaller programs that get installed with a major piece of s/w, it is now difficult to impossible (I have had to resort to opening the program location and using windows explorer).



For those that don't know what I am talking about - this is the little down arrow that appears under the left column on the start screen in windows 8.1 when you mouse-over its location.

Yeap that needs to come back alright!

I had a pop up that asked me if I would recommend the last build to friends and family.  Nope...

Good luck for them getting RTM done by 10th July

Tested a fresh install of 10130, but had issues with the start menu. Lucky every day i do a system image backup of my windows 8.1 and restored this. Am looking forward to release date of Windows 10.




Balm its gone!

That is the new one, it just gives an alphabetic list of the main applications you have installed.  As a developer I have over 200 apps, so there is quite a bit of scrolling needed using that new menu (or one needs to know the name of each app which doesn't help with multiple versions of the same program).

What is needed is a way to expand so one can see all of the sub-programs within an app.   This is what the old windows 8.1 menu did.
