Earlier in the year I tried to install the technical preview on my Omni 10 but was unable to do so, something to do with available space for the upgrade, at the time I read that it was because the installer was not yet optimised for devices with relatively small storage.
Has anyone managed to install one of the later builds on an Omni 10, and if so could you give me a little advice on how to do so successfully?
It has been a while ago and I am a bit fuzzy on the details, but I did get an early build working on Windows 10. My recollection of the process went something like this:
Attach an OTG adapter so a keyboard can be connected - needed at the time to get into the BIOS to turn off secure boot. (I think recent builds support secure boot, this might not be needed.)
Clean up all unnecessary files.
I think I put the installation files on an SD card.
I had to turn off the paging file to have enough space, and then turn it back on after the update to allow the system to actually run. It was at this point that things finally worked, turning off the paging file finally did the trick.
After the initial build was installed there were no problems just doing updates as they came along, at least through 10074. I was having some trouble with 10122 but have not spent any time tracking that one down.
The builds are coming fast enough and my internet bandwidth is slow enough that it is probably still early for Windows 10, at least in terms of doing "real" work. I have been doing most of my playing in Windows 10 on a virtual machine on my laptop. That is an x64 system, so I have to download a separate update for the Omni's x86 system.
It does seem to run OK on the Omni 10, I do like the user intereface better on Windows 10 than on 8 or 8.1.
If you like to tinker it is probably worth looking at, but expect that for the near term you will be doing lots of updates as the builds near RTM.
