    i installed it and it said something like Win10 technical preview doesnt work on "compressed windows."​ Thats the first for me.

    Will they make it compatible when W10 comes out?

    ​Also the term compressed windows, what does that mean?

    Download the iso and boot from a usb drive. Also copy all your drivers on there before you do it.
    ​I have it on a 16gig microsd card. is that the same thing?

    I think that could work, might as well try it. Worst case it just wont boot from the card and nothing will change.

    Compressed windows actually means WIMBoot. In short, windows boots from compressed files located on a separate partition on your device to save space. all the info is here (technical info) https://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/.../dn594399.aspx

    I've got a hp pavilion x2 with the same thing, if you really want to try out the TP, you can do a clean install (wipe everything). I believe that when the final version is released, it will be compatible with our devices. Fingers crossed :)

    Users running on a compressed OS should not install the January build of Windows 10 Technical Preview. Microsoft is working to enable this upgrade path in future releases and we will want your testing and feedback at that time :)
    xandros9 and onysi like this.
