W10 rollout begins.

Recommended Posts

Can't see anything there that is any different from any other os before it. Am I missing something? There seems to be a great paranoia about windows 10.

Ps this isn't aimed at any one person, it is a genuine comment.

There are numerous threads around that seem to be scaremongering about windows 10. I don't see anything that is different in the way data is handled to other oses. Standard personal security procedures should always apply along with some common sense when using any os and internet capable device.

I'm not too sure how the transition from Preview to RTM works. I would just do a clean install using the tool provided by Microsoft: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

 

If you are an Insider and you updated to Preview Build 10240, then you have the latest bits.  There's no need to install the Windows 10 ISO since it is also 10240.  As an insider, your machine remains authenticated, so you're good to go.  Not sure I've read anything to the contrary, but I can certainly be proven wrong :)

If you have no water mark in lower right hand corner you have 10240 - to prove it you can go to search and type in winver

Precisely.  Insiders on B10240 will get all the updates that General Availability users get, plus test updates sometime soon once Microsoft resumes Insider Preview builds.

All you have to do in this regard is to be sure you click "Customize Settings" instead of "Express Settings" during the W10 installation, and turn off anything that sends data to MS.

 

Thanks Diego will do when ready for the infamous fresh build
