    As the old saying goes, "The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese." I tried one of the earlier Win10 builds on my Stream, and it didn't end well. So I think I'll leave my tablet powered off for a few days and get people's impressions of how the final build is running before taking the leap myself. So come back tomorrow and tell me how it went!

    So far I got a failed update. Trying again, but I'm not sure it will work. Says it needs 9GB of free space before downloading. Started the download with a little over 9 last time, a little over 10 this time. We'll see.

    Same thing. Got to the blue installing screen,

    then a popup that says Something Happened, Win 10 upgrade failed.

    I get the feeling the reservation won't install due to it being a compressed OS. might have to do the ISO via USB route

    Third time was a charm! Started with 12GB available and it installed without a hitch. Now 3GB left after install.

    First impressions (after 10 minutes of use):
    Fast. Just as responsive as 8.1 if not more so
    Cortana on a tablet is cool
    So far everything just works. No lag, no crashes.
    Started in desktop mode, restarted in tablet mode (Continuum)
    Very happy with Win10 so far on my Stream 7.

    I had to do the 'force update' twice, 1st download didn't trigger the update. Cleaned out the directory has described in the instructions, and 2nd force worked great.

    Our 2 Stream 7's are up on Win 10 and running great so far. Been a couple hours, completely stable for us so far.

    Got that too...I didn't have everything out of my Downloads folder (even though I had issued a del *.* on that dir...)...I used file explorer after that and it worked fine.

    Yeah every time I've deleted its been with file explorer. Everything selected no hidden files. Guess I'll just wait.

    I've tried numerous times to no avail. The last time it rebooted and went straight to blue screen and rebooted into a windows 8.1 recovery. Looks like 10 isn't ready for prime time just yet.

    Installed Windows 10 via. the ISO and performance has been a bit problematic. Can't figure out if there's a driver I missed since I upgraded keeping nothing or what.

    I tried one of the force upgrades (deleting the files and running the elevated command prompt while checking for updates) and mine said it was downloading Windows 10 with the progress bar, then said my PC needed attention before downloading the Windows 10 Insider Preview (weird), and when I clicked to see, it disappeared and said no new updates. Rats.

    It got to the upgrading screens finally!!! Fingers, toes, arms and legs crossed!

    Update: It worked! Man 10 runs faster that 8.1 does.

    I had the icon yesterday and now it's gone. Anyone else experience that? I'm in no rush, but I am enjoying Windows 10 on my Lenovo laptop.

    Had Icon for last week but it disappeared 28thJuly.
    Downloaded ISO Win10-Home-x86 to USB stick.
    Plugged into Stream 7.
    Mounted ISO.
    Ran setup.
    Took a long time (Make sure you have full battery) and I had over 9GB free.
    All worked fine. Activated Fine.
    Activated and no issues.
    Running Bluetooth(BT) connected MS BT Mouse and BT Wedge keyboard.
    Also connected to MS wireless display adapter.
    it upgraded with my Office 365 sub so I still have Office 2013.
    Just cleaning old install files and will still have >15GB free
    Wireless also stable.
