    I purchased an HP Stream 11" today specifically to download and try Windows 10. When I attempted to install Windows 10, I received a message saying that it could not be installed on the laptop because it has "compressed memory" or something like that....

    So my question.... is it possible to install Windows 10 preview on my HP Stream? If yes, how can I make it happen?

    Thanks for the help!

    You try the ISO file? If so then there is no way to install T.P on compressed OS tablets yet

    I had the same problem on my tablet. I downloaded the appropriate iso of preview, and unpacked it using winrar onto a flash drive, and used it as a bootable and installed no problem

    Does it work on the Stream 11 laptop with the current Windows 10 preview build? Do all the drivers and trackpad work?
    The Stream 11 is not a tablet.

    I'm pretty sure that you can get Windows 10 Techbical Preview installed if you download the ISO as was mentioned above and boot to the ISO with a USB stick or external DVD drive instead of trying to upgrade inside Windows.
    However, I don't know if all the HP Stream hardware and drivers work after the installation.
    Someone who has installed it would need to post a response.

    If I boot from a flash drive and things don't work right would I be able to remove the flash drive and reboot and things be just as they were before?

    Use a program called rufus to make a bootable usd drive with the win 10 iso, everything should be ok, and if not you can use the recovery partition to reboot everything.

    It can be installed on an HP Stream 13 with touchscreen. So, it can probably be installed on others.
    I downloaded the ISO and created a FAT32 rufus boot USB disk. It installed easily.
    Only problem was that is was painfully slow until the HP drivers were installed and the Synaptics touchpad driver that was installed by Microsoft was uninstalled and replaced with the version from the HP site. I was about to go back to the factory image until I replaced the touchpad driver.
    So far everything is working, but there is very little disk space remaining since I didn't remove the recovery partition.
    Since I have backed up the recovery to USB, I will probably delete the recovery partition and expand the C drive to recover another 8GB of usable space.
