    OK, how about this - I went from driving my Mtustang every day to once per week. That caused the air pump to fail almost immediately. Feel better?

    Can you further describe this or give a link that explains this in more detail? What did Microsoft do to hard drives that rendered them undiscoverable not only in Windows but in other operating systems? Either there's a serious problem in Windows or a serious problem in the hardware standards if that can happen. (Again, unless firmware is getting updated and a problem comes up then.)
    It's well known among those that suffered the issue. You can google Windows 10 and Power up in standy. It's a feature you can set on a hard drive called PUIS. The disk goes into standby and then bios needs to wake it during boot. But the bios couldn't do that. So it left users trying to use hard drive recovery software. In my scenario it just would not get detected by anything after that setting.

    First On Race Day. I'd rather push a Ford than drive a Chevy. Friends don't let friends drive Chevys.

    It's on now! Gimme whachugot.

    I must be that one person who liked Vista. SP1 fixed a multitude of sins but the damage was done. I hope I'm wrong but I see history repeating. Vista had elements of 7 but many of XP's features. The blend of old (8.1) and new is eerily reminiscent. Time will tell.

    I wanted to get back to this one earlier but on Vista, it was fine after SP1. It was IMHO a very solid OS. MS ran up against the clock when MS released and MS paid dearly. As memory serves, it was dropped during the transition between Gates and Balmer and Balmer took the heat because it was on his watch. When SP1 dropped, it resolved almost all this issues Vista had and given a better release schedule, Vista would have had much better press.

    Just to show that Franken-computers are still possible, this is my latest pet project. Windows 8.1 Pro on a 2003-era Tablet PC with a Pentium M with single-core and 1.2gHz and 512MB RAM. Who said it can't be done. I have every feature working except wifi. The drivers load but I can't get into WZC. I'm suspecting a bad card and I've had to shell out a budget-busting $4.75 for a new one. Considering that 8.1 requires minimum 1 gig of Ram and WDDM 1.0 on the video, this thing runs pretty good on the 512 RAM and 32MB of video memory.

    Update: WiFi is now working and I'm upping the RAM to its limit. Who's going to be the first to dare me into loading the TP?

    I kind of wish I didn't go the TP route but since its so close to launch I guess I will stick with it until the end.

    Sounds more than likely that some of the hardware in your laptop was on the way out before you installed windows 10 TP & it is pure coincidence that your hardware died after you installed windows 10 TP. You cant whinge at Microsoft or anyone else for that matter, as you were well & truly warned of the dangers installing the tech preview software, I would be prepared to bet 10K, that you didn't read any of the warnings, T&Cs etc. You will just have to suck it up & move on as its nobody else's fault but your own.

    The OP is not a novice, and he did understand the warnings.

    He is not the only person who had this happen. Please see the following post.

    No, that's because a Ford Fiesta or Mondeo is a smooth and reliable modern car with real suspension and Chevys appear to be based on horse carriage suspension and run on coal. Chevys feel like US cars. Fords, at least the ones in Europe, very much don't.

    OK, so I am finally back on windows 8.1. And wow the experience I had missed, everything is faster, animations are better, certainly missing features such as snap view/taskview and icons and certain animations. But one thing that I like most on windows 8.1 is, I am using touch mode on my laptop more often. I barely used on windows 10. Now scrolling through websites, app switching, common tasks etc., are all now done using touch and I am loving it. Using Windows 10 made me think why I had touch enabled laptop in the first place. Now all is justified again.
    Clearly, in my experience on both the OSs', touch element is much, much better on windows 8.1, and I am not saying that I don't like win 10, but wow.
    I was thinking of upgrading my pc to 10 rtm as soon as it launched, but nope, unless touch is improved, I am not going to use windows 10, will rather wait for upgrades etc.

    I'm jealous. I'm stuck (for unsolved technical reasons) on freakin' 10080. Worst mistake I've ever made..WP10M...Yeah, good luck!

    This is not Beta. Comparing this to beta is like comparing assembly language to C++.

    I would think you'd love it once you try it as a finished OS. I've been using them quite regularly on my Mac in a VM and just recently got a Build for my Surface 3. I am totally blown away by the new functionality and potential showed so far. Can't wait for Official release of both the PC and Phone versions!
