    Has anyone been able to install the new Technical Preview on devices with a compressed OS such as the HP Stream 8? I've only tried installing from the windows update method and not the ISO which I have downloading now. Any insight would be much appreciated.

    I reported the compressed OS problem to a support rep on twitter, currently downloading the ISO though which is gonna take up to 12 hours though. Please do report if it works for you guys :)

    Even using the ISO I'm getting the message that is cannot be installed on a compressed version of Windows.

    Well that's stupid, maybe 16gb tablets just can't use this tp build, i'd contact Microsoft about this and see what they have to say about this predicament
    .edit:
    Ok so a few other people had the same issue here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/i...f-a5885f07b056

    I'd guess to make sure your tablet meets the requirements the guy put up on there.

    Ok I guess we're screwed. 16gb free hard drive space isn't possible on a 16gb tablet right?

    More than likely not, but i'll see if I can get the ISO to work for me. We may have to wait for the consumer build if there will be one.

    Thanks for the help everyone. My stream 8 will have the space after I do a PC refresh and I have the ISO so I will try and post results this evening.

    I have a Stream 7, and managed to get 19.7GB free out of the 32GB, and I can't install from the ISO, I get the same "compressed operating system" message. Not sure what to do now...

    Guys, you won't be able to install Windows 10 Tech Preview on devices running a compressed version of OS.

    It's clearly stated as one of the system requirements on Microsoft's website: System requirements - Microsoft Windows

    Does this imply 16 gig devices will get the sub8" version that phones get?

    The phone version of Windows 10 is going to be different from what we'll be getting on small tablets (although the name remains the same). The system requirements stated is strictly meant for the technical preview of Windows 10. The regular Windows 10 will still be available for tablets once the codes are finalized.

    Finally installed the TP on my laptop and its a little too buggy for me to put it on my tablet (if I could). There is still one possibility that could still be an option. Older preview builds have successfully been installed on tablets with a compressed OS. I would believe that installing these older builds on your device will allow you to use windows update to get the new preview build. This is all speculation at this point though.

    Compressed OS means your OS boots from a Wimboot image, to save disk space. Try the update via Windows Update.

    Most probably Microsoft will support this in later builds or by the time the final build rolls out

    No go on the WU. Guess we'll have to wait.

    You could try installing the preview to a bootable USB drive via WinToUSB, boot from that drive using your tablet, set everything up then delete some stuff while you're in the external OS to free up space, duplicate that drive to your internal drive, boot from internal drive.

    I haven't tried it & not 100% sure it'll work, but I don't see any reason why it shouldn't.

    I tried that, and the HP X2 will not boot from USB. Tried making boot disk. No go.

    What's the BIOS on that HP like? It might ne a limited one like on Toshiba tablets that wont let it boot from USB.

    I actually had to use UltraISO to burn the image. Booted fine. Disk formatted. Installed fine. Needed to download drivers. Looks nice. Hey Cortana not working. MIC is ok. Cortana works fine manually.

    I'd rather wait for a version that's compatible with 16gb tablets since they start off with such low space anyways.

    Create a bootable USB, boot into setup and format all the partitions into one. Use a mouse and usb hub. Install Windows 10. Grab all the HP drivers and put on a USB. Install them. To get touch enabled you may need to restart the driver. You're done!
