    After installing Windows 10 preview (Build 9860) I noticed that the resolution on my tablet was a bit lower (things looked larger).
    Upon checking the display settings, I noticed that it maxed at 1280x800 . below that I saw the message "Your resolution is lower than 1200 X 900. Some items might not fit on your screen.

    I tried to find Display Drivers to reinstall or update but with no avail.

    Please help

    I did a fresh install, don't know how much space is left didn't check but I have the 64GB model. After using it for awhile I can't say that I'd recommend installing it. It really isn't ready for tablets, the focus so far is really on the desktop experience, which doesn't work very well on an 8inch device. The modern IE is gone, and all the Store apps run on the desktop so the keyboard doesn't automatically pop up anymore when in a text field.
    How if enabling Tablet Mode in Settings?

    I'm debating on installing the new Tech Preview on my Venue 8 Pro except for the simple fact that there are too many options missing and will be coming within the next six months or so. I use mine as a remote work device with Logitech K810 keyboard and T630 mouse and based what I've seen on my PC that I loaded this version on I'm anxious to pull the trigger. From what I've heard, the Continuum feature is only available to Surface devices in this version (manual switching is still good enough) and I didn't see a change in some of the Universal apps they discussed.

    As this is a machine I trust and rely on, I think it's best to wait a couple versions. I really want to see what Spartan looks like as the web based Service Management platform I support is going to Angular JS and IE has compatibility issues with it.

    This tablet has a 1200 x 800 display so no mater what display drivers install it not going any higher. There are few tricks some devices use such as the 7" Toshiba which tricks windows into think the display is higher resolution than it is. However this generally leads to a blurry, grainy display.

    I installed it yesterday, initial impression is mehh... I'm not liking it at all. Especially the new start screen in tablet mode, 8.1 start screen was the best UI for touch. Plus the start screen layout is buggy as far as rendering tile icons are concerned. Search downright sucks and is buggy. Plus there is no working logon using pin, everytime after waking up the screen I've to enter my password to login

    Just wondering if anyone has installed 64-bit or has everyone just installed 32-bit on the DV8P?

    And here we are a week before launch and the only thing they fixed was the pin login... Awesome..

    I have the preview on my venue 8 pro, and it works great, performance is just as it should be. I have a second one up on my night stand just waiting for the official release.

    I'm finding it to be excellent. Comparable to Windows 8 as far as speed. Battery life actually seems a bit better to me. I started by upgrading to a preview build 3 or so builds before 10240 and each one has just gotten better and better. Very happy with it.

    I tried to install it last night on my 32gb unit and it failed miserably. Any recommendations?

    Were you trying a clean install or in place upgrade? On some of the preview releases there were issues with the touch screen on clean installs requiring a USB to go plug and USB port so you could use a mouse and keyboard.

    What specifically do you mean by "failed miserably"?

    I didn't even get an error code. It just stopped. I'm trying to use the download tool.

    Edit: Third time it says I need an otg with 9gb available.

    I am manually doing an in place upgrade using the Windows 10 download tool. Windows 10

    First time the setup ran it crashed with out any error. Second time it got the "Something went wrong" error and had to close it.

    I only have about 4GB of disk space left so i don't know if that is the issue.

    So I did try to upgrade using the ISO, it did upgrade but my Windows did not activate. Then I did a clean install and tried using V8P's Windows key (i captured it before starting the upgrade), it didn't activate either. Now I am restoring back to 8.1.

    I plan on just using 32-bit Windows since that's what I have on 8.1 today. Changing the 'bitness' require a fully clean install, and I'm not prepared for that hassle. I'd rather just upgrade.

    But I'm having a heck of a time clearing enough space to install. I've ran cleanup (as myself and as admin), removed every single program (even Office suites) and app, and even deleted all but 1 user profile, removed all OneDrive files, etc. Yet, only 3.6 GB of space is free.

    Anyone know what's safe to remove to get enough space? Like perhaps the $SysReset folders in the root of the drive?

    I faced a similar problem trying to make enough space for a Win 10 upgrade. I managed to do it after doing a disk cleanup with system clean option, removing unnecessary apps, cleaning temp folder, reducing paging to 1024 Mb and no hibernation. I was able to free up 2GB yielding about 6GB on my 32GB Tablet.

    I also had the, not enough space problem so I loaded the Windows 10 install onto my SD card and installed Windows 10 from it.
