Insider Preview Update to 10525

Question: Insider Preview Update to 10525

When I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 Pro my Win 10 was activated. I decided to stay on the Insider Preview and today was upgraded to version 10525. After the upgrade, I noticed the Windows Watermark showing this as an Evaluation Copy and no longer have activated copy, but a Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview Copy. Does anyone know why I went through the update farce if you lose it by staying in the Insider Preview.

My bad. Just rechecked and does show it's activated.

Preferred Solution: Insider Preview Update to 10525

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Insider Preview Update to 10525

I have heard that the roll back works good if you want to go back to the rtm. I have not done that yet but am thinking on trying soon. I do have a test machine ready. The good thing seems to be that the activation goes forward and back also. Good luck to you

You are going to continue to have that issue until you disable the Insider Builds or remove yourself permanently from the program.

Hi Guys!
Only a few days ago a Windows Insider Build had been pushed outside the walls of Redmond. This build is marked as 10525 and does not include that many features. As to say in fact that Windows 10 for Xbox One is coming really soon so prepare your selves for the update! If that anybody on the forum has an Xbox One then the update will apply to them. But for now enjoy the update as I think there will be another one very soon, plus that watermark has returned!

Answer:Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10525.

Despite this build doesn't include many new features, (actually the only additions are the improved memory manager and colored window title bars), it feels very rock solid, good for daily use.

I have Insider Preview 10525 installed on a dual boot system with openSUSE. Windows 10 is activated. However even though I'm on the Fast Ring I haven't gotten any updates or new build for quite awhile. I use WSUS to get security updates.

I downloaded Windows TH2 Build 10568 from the "official" Windows 10 News site (Microsoft - but uses MEGA servers) which posted today.

Windows 10 boots fine but says to install Windows from my installed copy - fair enough.

When I run setup.exe from the DVD I get the helpful message "Something happened" - real informative. After trying several times I get to the license page and skip the updates (this caused the helpful message above. I skipped the product key entry since Windows 10 was installed and activated. Then I get the refallyh bizarre error that the installer cannot determine if I am running Windows 10!

I have almost 97 programs installed and working great so I'm not going to do a clean install. I probably can't return to build 10240 if I use the recovery mode but I'm almost ready to try to revert - if I can - since I have an image created by the AOEMI Backupper program which has restored system backups many times when I or Windows screws up.

Does anybody have any idea how I'll be able to install build 10586 - since apparently the normal Windows 10 update in Settings is not going to work.

Hi everyone,
It has been amazing to see the impact that Windows Insiders have made since we launched the program last year. Your feedback has helped us fix bugs and make changes which resulted in a better product because of your input. Thank you to all of the Windows Insiders who have been with us so far. Now I?d like to talk a bit about what is next.

With the general availability of Windows 10, the Windows Insider Program will focus on building and delivering Windows as a service by updating Windows 10 with new features and functionality on an ongoing basis. As always, Windows Insiders will be the first to see these new features and changes.

Feedback from Windows Insiders not only helps us build Windows 10 ? it also helps us shape how we run the program. For example, Windows Insiders have asked us to improve the flighting cadence and to keep the Windows Feedback app in the product ? which we have done. We?re also evaluating the Windows Insider rings, and considering whether we should make changes there. Over the past few months we?ve been looking at feedback to see what changes we want to make going forward. We?re putting plans together now, so you won?t see any changes immediately, but they will come over time. We?ll be doing our best to make sure that we improve every aspect of the program, from build distribution to the Feedback app and Insider Hub. And of course we?ll be looking to do more fun things for Windows Insider... Read more

I seem to be stuck on 10525. I keep getting the message that a restart is scheduled for update to th2_release Professional 10532, but no matter how many times I restart it, it won't install the update. Hell, it won't even restart automatically most of the time. I don't get an error message or anything, just the same message that a scheduled restart is in effect. I've also tried disabling insider builds, but when I reboot, it's still enabled. I can't roll back to 10240 because it will delete everything no matter what I do. I don't have the option to save my stuff. I'm not worried about my files, they're backed up. I just don't want to reinstall all my apps again. Any suggestions?

EDIT: Downloaded the 10532 ISO, started an install, and it gave me the option to keep my apps and settings. It's at 29% now. We'll see how this goes.

Hello, I've been trying for hours to get my HTC One M8 to run the Windows 10 preview, but I'm having some issues.
- As most people have suggested, I've hard reset my phone, not used a backup, then installed the insider preview and signed up for fast ring (I hear the newest build is great).
- Once I've done this and the phone has restarted and everything, I go to check for updates and.... nothing. Says my device is up to date.
- Tried resetting (twice), using the WP recovery tool, and still no updates come around.
Any suggestions? Could this have anything to do with my carrier (Verizon)? Am I out of luck? Thanks in advance.

I have an HTC One M8 running 10586.218 that my son is using (left IOS and likes W10M) and it runs very good on that phone.
You will not get an upgrade using the fast ring on the HTC, that is just for "supported" devices. You can get the very good 10586.218 release using "Insider Release" not "slow" or "fast" though. Not sure if "production" ring will get you anything either.

Hello all,

Real quick, I'm having an issue where I try to update from Build 15031.rs2_release.170204-1546 to the next rs2_release available via Windows Update. The update downloads, does the pre-install, boots me into the traditional blue screen of updating, finishes, then reboots me to get back into the OS. At this juncture, I am at a blue flag and white dot circle, which has stopped spinning (it spins for approx .75 seconds) and halts, machine stays in this state ad infinitum. I can reboot it, at which point it goes back to the same state. If i shut down, then power back up instead (cold boot), the machine reverts the upgrade and goes back to the previous build and everything is honkey dorey.

Thing 1) I do not have a wireless USB mouse/dongle. Please don't recommend I remove it as one does not exist.
Thing 2) I have removed two possible culprits (Creative SoundBlaster Z card, Asus Wireless-N card). No change.
Thing 3) I have unplugged all video (except 1 Display Port), all USB connections, and the Ethernet cable. No change.
Thing 4) I even went so far as to disconnect my NZXT water cooler USB connector from the motherboard header and reboot. No change.

So here's my complicated tale. Been an insider from 2014 on the first builds and my computer has ALWAYS stayed activated on the Windows 10 Insider Preview. Anyways after Build 10525 was released a new problem started on my computer that caused my PC to crash when exiting games. So I decided to wait it out till the next build. (Unfortunately I did not think to Reset my PC before but I did report the bug through the Feedback app). Then Build 10532 came out and I updated but the problem was still not fixed with my games so I then decided to rollback to 10525. After I was on 10525 I realized I should just go back to 10532 and then reset and perhaps the issue would be fixed. So I started the update process back to Build 10532. Then during the update installation it froze on "Configuring settings 1%" and stayed there for about 9 hours. I realized I should just shut down the computer and turn it back on and it'll resume and perhaps override the freeze. But it didn't...it actually went to "Restoring previous version of Windows" and then brought me back to 10525. So then I decided to just do the reset on 10525 to fix my issue with gaming. After doing the reset now it keeps telling me repeatedly to Activate Windows and I pressed the activate button but I keep getting error 0x8004FC12. I tried contacting Microsoft but they couldn't help me and activating via phone or any other way DOES NOT WORK! I cant receive or install any updates as far as I know and I'm still an ... Read more

Answer:Win 10 Insider preview to Win 10

If you can't get the update via Windows Update (in Settings), the best thing to do is to roll back to your original Windows version and upgrade to Windows 10 from there. Note that if Insider Preview has been installed for longer than 30 days, you will not be able to roll back. If that's the case you will have to clean install Windows 10 or your original version of windows.

To clear up, I want to know if it's worth downloading the insider preview on my Nokia Lumia 830? Why I ask is I know the first initial release of Win 10 Mobile is coming out in a week but I'm really eager (like really hyped) to see what's different from WP 8.1 to WP 10. I've seen so many screen shots that I just want to try it but I don't want to have to go through all of that hassle, just to have to reset it a week later. I'm very conflicted about it.
So should I take my chances and go all out or wait for the official release?

Answer:Downloading the insider preview on my 830?

I was in the same boat until finally trying it last week on my daily driver L830. But I first hard reset 8.1, then installed Insider Preview app, updated to W10M, then a final hard reset. And I started fresh and did not restore a backup.
I'm happy with it so far. Battery life is not that great but it has stabilized after a few days. Not running many apps in the background. No major issues. But I haven't installed this latest cumulative 10586.29 update yet. I'll probably wait till official OTA carrier release before trying another update or hard reset.

Can you post a screenshot please? 10240 is the final build, Insiders who are running it have exactly the same build as people who've upgraded.

Answer:How can I upgrade from the Insider Preview to RTM?

Current info is that the Insider Preview build 10124 is the same as the RTM, so there's no need to upgrade.

IF you're asking how to upgrade from the Insider version to the Released version -- you can't. To get the Released version, you have to either do a clean install (in which case you won't be able to activate because there are no keys at present), or you have to restore the previous Win7/8/8.1 and upgrade from that.

I have 3 computers and 1 VM I will be putting Windows 10 on.

Toshiba Laptop - using IP build 10240 - originally upgraded from 8.1 Pro. I will continue IP here, opt in.
Dell Laptop - using IP build 10240 - originally upgraded from 8.1 Pro. I do not want IP here any more, want to opt out.
Lenovo Desktop running 8.1 Pro. No IP and don't want IP.
Oracle VM on 8.1 Pro system running IP build 10240 - Clean install build 10122 then upgraded to 10240. - Continue IP, opt in.

All use the same MS account though on 8.1 I use a local account even though a MS account is setup.

So my question is, what gets what?

Toshiba laptop continues in IP so stays at 10240 + updates?
Dell laptop - I will have to restore 8.1 then do the free upgrade to 10?
Lenovo desktop - free upgrade to 10?
Oracle VM continues in IP so stays at 10240 + updates?

Today Gabe Aul has posted that from the next build of win10, insider will have to use theirs MSA (used for insider program) to login into windows to allow them to receive the free RTM.
My problem is that I have the insider preview (already with MSA) on my main PC in dual-boot with win8.1 but I don't want to continue to use it for the insider program. I want only the final and stable release of 10 on it. But I want to still be an insider, so, can I install the next build on another PC?
If not I unfortunately have to leave the insider program. I twitted even Gabe but he doesn't answer me... Can someone help me?

Answer:Win10 Insider preview on a different PC

Windows 10 has an option in Settings > Update and Recovery > Windows Update > Advanced update options to "Stop Insider Builds" I think.
When you receive the RTM build, you need to click "Stop Insider Builds" and you'll stop getting the pre release builds, however, you may be required to roll back to a previous version of Windows. This is to stop pirates getting free, genuine copies of Windows 10 without helping Microsoft test the operating system.
In terms of installing another pre release build on another PC, if you install 10130 on another PC, sign in with your MSA, you'll still get Insider builds without leaving the Insider Program.
This is just my understanding of it, but if I'm wrong, anyuone correct me :-)

Hello everyone.

I have installed a win 10 insider preview on my laptot as soon as they announced them. Now I haven't been using my laptot for nearly a half a year and got stuck. I changed the date in BIOS to 2016, and was able to boot into windows, but like ten error showed after login. It's a 14391 insider preview, and it won't update to anything newer, because it's still saying, that timestamps says it is out of expiration date. And when I wanted to change the date, it wouldn't let me, saying that I don't have the permissions. I also checked, that this version expired a month ago, but how should I knew that before. I then restarted my PC, and now it won't boot anymore, even after BIOS date change. What should I do?

Thanks for any advice.

PS: I still have Win 7 installed on this laptop if it can help something (or can use Linux Live usb, or even plug hdd into another computer).

I can't seem to find any firm answer to this online, so i thought I'd check here. More than a year ago now I built a cheap pc from parts I had lying around so that my young kids, who are just starting to type up presentations for school, didn't trash my machine .

Anyway, I installed the Insider Preview version of Win 10 onto a blank drive and they have been using it ever since. I thought I read somewhere that after the free upgrade period expired in the summer, the Insider Preview versions would become a legal version, and for a while that what it showed on that machine. More recently though, the preview build number is now shown on the bottom right of the desktop where previously it was blank.

The latest slow ring update borked web browsing for us, apparently a clash with the free version of AVG I had (now removed in order to see web sites!), but that got me to thinking that since this machine has become quite a big part of my kids daily use, maybe it's time to drop out of the Insider program.

What I cannot seem to find out is what will happen as far as the license goes - TLDR, if we drop out, will we have to pay for a full retail license, or does it just stay activated as it is?

Hi
If I register myself in the Insider Program, can I try to install Windows 10 on a machine that has Windows XP already running? Can I leave the program at any time? I know that If I leave the program my Windows 10 license become inactive. In that case can I reinstall Windows XP again, or I can't because there is already the registration of the componentes in Microsoft servers when I was running 10 on the machine?
Thanks in advance

Answer:Testing Insider Preview on XP machine

The first question is whether the WinXP can meet the requirements for Win10. The next question would be if Win10 will have drivers for the devices on the WinXP computer, most times won't. I've not heard of WinXP working with the digital entitlement of Win10. Win10 was not offered as a free Upgrade to WinXP [only Win7 w/SP1 and Win8.1] so would assume that wouldn't be a path for Upgrading. And I haven't seen a Retail version of Win10 that can Upgrade over WinXP or WinVista. That said, I have Upgraded a couple of WinXP computers to Win10 but only after Upgrading to Win7 w/SP1 so as to get the freebie. There were drivers available for those Win7 computers which will be a key item for the ability to Upgrade, Win10 may or may not work with Win7 drivers.

Hi Guys and Gals

I used to have windows 10 Insider Preview running on a separate partition on my laptop, until recently.
I had a choice at boot-up as to which operating system I wanted, either the Insider or my regular Windows 10 Pro, then, all of a sudden the choices were not there. I just couldn't get into the Insider system.
I thought that if I deleted the system I would be able to download a fresh installation, but, I just can't find an installation that will load. I keep getting the error message "winload.exe has expired" and there is nothing I can do to get my Insider programme to load and work.
Please, please, has anybody got any ideas as to what I can do next, I still want to be a member of the Insider programme, but can't download a loadable replacement.

Waiting with fingers crossed

Instead of going to sleep mode, PC hangs with drive light on, have to press shut down button to turn it off.

It is this build specific bug, since it occurs in the same way with at least two users... Posted this before in news section, but could be easier to find here...
Looks like I resolved the issue. At least for now. Sleep works if I put it to sleep from start, and after selected time.

Run "powercfg /energy" command from admin command and save file energy report to desktop, so browser can read it..
There are other switches in powercfg, that can give you this info, too

You'll probably found that there were some errors with USB devices - check vendor IDs.
Install nirsoft USBdeview to check which are those USB devices (vendor ID would tell). In my case it turned out it was USB receiver for my wireless Logitech mouse and mouse itself.

Go to device manager and uninstall USB input device. Windows will reinstall that device, don't worry. After restart PC goes to sleep.

While in USBdeview, delete or disconnect latest USB flash drives.

This resolved my issue, but won't mark thread as solved yet. Let's wait if anybody else can confirm or give extra input...

howdy, followed the tutorial on stopping insider preview builds due issues but getting to part where it says turn insider preview build back on is a blank box and clicking stop insider previews then crashes and i have to run taskmanager to kill pc setting, system restore - sfc /scannow do naff all, any help well appreciated on stopping insider builds well appreciated, oh and also can't refresh pc keeping my files to try fix issue either as all win 10 wants to do is remove everything ive installed which i dont want to do, cheers



Do you have a good backup from before 14271? Can't really tell, but from the way you describe it, and you had "issues",and refresh not working.....sounds like a restore is due to before 14271 or a clean install.

My computer installed this update (Windows 10 Insider Preview 14965) back around the middle of November and I have noticed two things. First -- Microsoft Edge took it upon itself to reinstate itself as my "Default Browser" and secondly now I keep having issues when navigating the internet. Basically I will click a link and the browser will pretend like it's going to go but then tell me it can't find the page so I just hit refresh and ta-da the page is there. It happens on any website (whether Amazon, Google, Microsoft, etc) and in Edge, Chrome and IE.

Anyone else having this type of issue? I also play games that rely on the internet and I haven't had any issues when them nor do I have any issues pinging websites even when I let ping run for 20 to 30 minutes while I'm browsing the web and experience the issue. I'm tempted to uninstall the update but if others updated and aren't seeing the issue then I may just have a weird DNS issue going on.

Thoughts?
 

Answer:Windows 10 Insider Preview 14965

Since your using a beta test operating system, its probably a bug. The current version of W10 is 1607 Build 14393.447. It doesn't have the problems you describe. Did you report this issue with Microsoft ?

I have had a similar issue almost every time when I have been trying to join a new machine to Insider program. In my case I have had to turn AV real time protection off and disable firewall to get it work, then when done turn AV on again and enable firewall.

I think it's at least worth to try, it just might be that it works also when trying to leave Insider program.

Hi Guys and Gals

I used to have windows 10 Insider Preview running on a separate partition on my laptop, until recently.
I had a choice at boot-up as to which operating system I wanted, either the Insider or my regular Windows 10 Pro, then, all of a sudden the choices were not there. I just couldn't get into the Insider system.
I thought that if I deleted the system I would be able to download a fresh installation, but, I just can't find an installation that will load. I keep getting the error message "winload.exe has expired" and there is nothing I can do to get my Insider programme to load and work.
Please, please, has anybody got any ideas as to what I can do next, I still want to be a member of the Insider programme, but can't download a loadable replacement.

Waiting with fingers crossed

Another day, another week and finally another leak build from Wzor yes this is dubbed 10102 and has wiped my mind I am so amazed at how far this Build has gone through and as I say this yes it is a bit new. Also the build 10105, 10107 and 10108 remain imminent. So WZOR might have some leaked builds ready for tomorrow or in the next few days. Yes 10102 are now available: https://mega.co.nz/#!6F9hlZSS!wBjS3plB1Lj7pkACPfnSHtawe2X7sS41TcZGrK9Cijg

Answer:Windows 10 Insider Preview 10102!

Do not recommend bothering w/ leaked Builds.  "Everything comes to he who waits"

Hi
If I register myself in the Insider Program, can I try to install Windows 10 on a machine that has Windows XP already running? Can I leave the program at any time? I know that If I leave the program my Windows 10 license become inactive. In that case can I reinstall Windows XP again, or I can't because there is already the registration of the componentes in Microsoft servers when I was running 10 on the machine?
Thanks in advance

Answer:Testing Insider Preview on XP machine

The first question is whether the WinXP can meet the requirements for Win10. The next question would be if Win10 will have drivers for the devices on the WinXP computer, most times won't. I've not heard of WinXP working with the digital entitlement of Win10. Win10 was not offered as a free Upgrade to WinXP [only Win7 w/SP1 and Win8.1] so would assume that wouldn't be a path for Upgrading. And I haven't seen a Retail version of Win10 that can Upgrade over WinXP or WinVista. That said, I have Upgraded a couple of WinXP computers to Win10 but only after Upgrading to Win7 w/SP1 so as to get the freebie. There were drivers available for those Win7 computers which will be a key item for the ability to Upgrade, Win10 may or may not work with Win7 drivers.
