    hello all! wanted to share my experience as i took the plunge and installed the insider preview on my hp stream 8 today.

    i started off with a clean install of the os (32bit with bing) with no data or apps on the tablet. i made sure i was up to date at windows update, and went to hp.com and downloaded all the drivers for the stream 8 (for reference, you type in 5801 in the search bar) and put them in a folder on the tablet and on another machine.

    i then made a system image on my 16gb sd card i have in the tablet. i do not know if this would do me any good if the install failed, but i have no other way for a recovery image. off to the insider website to start the upgrade process after signing in with my microsoft account. The upgrade took about an hour and a half. so go take a nap.

    I came back to the tablet and i was on the log in screen, i was relieved. after the OOBE experience, i checked my drivers. the intel graphics driver was stopped, so i reinstalled it from the drivers i downloaded earlier, and i had a clean device manager. the tablet automatically goes into tablet mode.

    performance is ok, it is a little slow at times, and some apps can be buggy, as i tried creating this post in spartan (edge) and internet explorer, but my bluetooth keyboard would not finish the post (i am writing this in chrome) . i also notice my onedrive app is gone (not the desktop version) , but all in all, i am happy and will try to use it day to day.

    sorry to those who haven't had luck getting windows 10 on your stream tablet. hope my info can help people.
