    Deepak no offence but both terry and joe belfiore clearly stated if you dont know how to find out motherboard information and configure processor settings in a VM you shouldnt try the technical preview.

    Did you manage to install it? :)
    I found this on system requirements for Windows 10:

    Important notes
    Some PC processors and hardware configurations aren’t supported by Technical Preview.

    Maybe it's because of that.

    I'll try installing it tomorrow. Here, it's midnight now. Thanks though!

    My BIOS can get damaged, my lappy won't boot ever, my files may get corrupted - such things may happen! Joking! :P I'll try it on an external drive. Thanks.
    If you can't handle these issues, maybe you are not supposed to run a technical preview, and you can't run windows 10 from an external drive because you will need an active installation to even try windows to go if that thing exists...

    I am very much able to handle toughest of the tough situations regarding any damage done to my machine. I have experienced such situations many times in the past which I had overcome on my own. I may have installed, uninstalled and reinstalled various OSes on my lappy (including Mac OSX 10.7, Linux and Chromium) several times with each installation becoming a nightmare then not now. I had also played with all the previews of Windows 8 with no issue but on my actual laptop. This thread is indeed needy of a solution for the general error as it appears in the image above.

    and you can't run windows 10 from an external drive because you will need an active installation to even try windows to go if that thing exists...
    There's no OS which can't be installed on an external hard drive formatted to suit the OS's needs.
    I am a computer geek as I describe myself. So, I've this knowledge

    Thanks though!

    The Win 10 TP works in VirtualBox 4.3.12 but VMware Player works better for now. The Virtualbox extensions don't work with the Technical Preview. If you really want to use Virtualbox, be sure to configure settings for Windows 8.1 (64 bit) or (32 bit) depending on which one you are installing and set the Processor to Enable PAE/NX.

    The rest of the settings should be already set by default by the Windows 8.1 config, like 2048MB base memory, VT-x/AMD-V enabled, nested paging enabled, video memory 128MB, 3D acceleration enabled, 2D video acceleration enabled.

    OK, now! I am finally installing the preview on VMware Player.

    I had always used the VMware Workstation which uses lot of my memory.. But the Player is just okay. I'll try it out.

    It's now perfectly working fine on my actual PC. It's really good. But it gives me a feel of Windows 8.1! Seems to be another not-so-big update for the previous OS.
