After watching BUILD 2015 event, I was inspired by what Microsoft are doing, especially Hololens. I went to their download website to download the newest, hottest OS of Microsoft, Windows 10 (Technical Preview, build 10074).
The first issue I met was the installation files was not copied completely to my machine, and it hang at 48%. This was my fault because I burnt the OS iso file to the DVD with high speed. So, I burnt the ISO file to another DVD with lower speed, and it worked :D. Now, welcome Cortana in Windows 10 :D.
Well, the first installation was so good. There is no problems with the original OS. You can find many beautiful photos, videos on other blogs about this hottest OS, so I don’t post them here, because I have to capture the same screenshots to show you, and I’m a ‘lazy man’ 😀 (just kidding). After making a tour with this OS, I clicked update to check out if there’s any installation for my drivers, especially my NVIDIA graphic card driver. Hooray, it had, and bonus with an update for the OS, KB3061161. I let it updated without restarting my computer, and everything was still good. And, it’s time for the dark, and the nightmare, hoho. I restarted my computer after install some products from Adobe, and Wacom tablet driver. The BLUE restarting screen appeared, and hang there with unlimited time. OMG, really!!! Yes, it was.
I must hold the power button on my computer to shut it down. OMG OMG. I waited some seconds, then powered on my computer. The starting up was so so slow, and hang with a BLUE screen. OMG, really!!! Yes, it’s the beginning of the nightmare.
I had to use the power button again to shut it down. I tried it some more times to hope that it could get back to work. One of them worked. I could log-in to my computer, and guess what happened. The start menu didn’t work, no apps worked, but explorer. The taskbar had only 3 icons for date-time display, battery power, notification, and touchpad, no more.
You can see, no resources used, even the memory was used -1%. This is so weird :D.
So, what could I say? My computer had become a ‘stone’. But I didn’t give up there. I tried a clean install again, and I wanted to figure out what made that issue. OK, and I knew what the problem is. The problem happened after I install updates, include my graphic card driver installation, worked well with on-board Intel HD 3000/4000… driver.
So, my recap:
– Windows 10 Technical Preview is only for brave man, who want to see what Windows 10 BLUE screen look like.
– Windows 10 Technical Preview, at this time, only work on machine with on-board graphic card, not for “out-board” graphic card.
Hope you have great time with Windows 10 Technical Preview.
P/s: I switched back to Windows 8.1 for working.
