So I'm building my own PC. When I boot it up for the first time, am I able to put it on a flash drive and boot it from there?
Gaming & Vindy (2 years ago)
I found that it was difficult to do... so I just spent $30 on G2A for Windows 10 Professional Edition

Would you have to put the download file in a flashdrive to install it onto a new pc?
Bobby Smiles (2 years ago)
+Tech Tacular Ok, thank you for the help :)
Chris Langley (2 years ago)
+Bobby Smiles Google around for "create bootable USB" :)
Bobby Smiles (2 years ago)
+Tech Tacular Sorry I'm new at this, but how exactly do you do that?
Chris Langley (2 years ago)
+Bobby Smiles Yep. But you'll have to actually write it to the flash drive as a bootable stick, not just throw the file on there.

You have to be in college?
Chris Langley (2 years ago)
+Mr. Littlenewo Yup, unfortunately. Or have a .edu email address. Although MS ended up giving any Windows 10 beta testers a free license, so I got an extra two Win10 licenses out of it since I was beta testing on both of my computers.
CaptainKid (2 years ago)
can you download an OS to a big enough flash drive and just use that for as many pcs that you want
Chris Langley (2 years ago)
+KrazykidmanHD Yep, as long as you have enough activations! :)

If I will download this Windows 8 Embedded version and then upgrade to Windows 10, do I get the Windows 10 Embedded version or just the regular/Pro version?
Chris Langley (2 years ago)
+Hod Cohen You can't upgrade embedded to 10, unfortunately. You'll have to wait for a new version of Windows to become available on Dreamspark.

Rahul Katre (3 years ago)
Hi. Would this work with Steam, since I am using this for a gaming PC. Also, did you make your desktop look like that or was it default?
Erwin Klaseboer (2 years ago)
+Rahul Katre ah i see. thank you
Rahul Katre (2 years ago)
+Erwin Klaseboer Basically the full version, its just that you will get beta builds instead. You also can't opt out. However, I had installed the Insider Preview before July 29 of last year, and I somehow got the full version. I researched this and I found out that it might be because I signed in with a Microsoft account before the release date of the full Windows 10. This probably won't happen when you install Windows, but there is no difference between the full and IP versions.
Erwin Klaseboer (2 years ago)
+Rahul Katre does the insider preview give you the full version?
Rahul Katre (3 years ago)
+Lxjad Fumide Sorry, you're a little late. I installed the Windows 10 Insider Preview and on July 29, I got the full Pro version.

YourManUgly (3 years ago)
Is it like a trial version, windows 10 I mean
JoshuaRants (3 years ago)
No, its an Insiders Preview (formerly Technical Preview), which is basically a beta version of Win10. it's not as polished as it will be when its released to the public, its mainly for developers to test out the software and give their opinions to Microsoft to help improve it.

What browser are you using? 
Mr. Sinister (2 years ago)
+Tech Tacular Thanks and great videos btw!
Chris Langley (2 years ago)
+Mr. Sinister I don't, I'm not currently using FFX/Waterfox. :/ But if you search "dark theme" it should turn up plenty of results. :)
Mr. Sinister (2 years ago)
+Tech Tacular Would you know off hand what the theme is? Great video btw!
Chris Langley (3 years ago)
Waterfox, which is a 64-bit fork of FFX, with a bunch of add-ons and a theme.

Do you get to keep it after it comes out of beta ?
Brehmly (3 years ago)
Windows 10 will be free for people with windows 7/8, so there is a chance it might apply to beta testers too
BadGuy84 (3 years ago)
No you don't: it usually expires, but you may actually be able to get Windows 10 through dreamspark once it's released (if you have dreamspark).
LukeyWolf (3 years ago)
Thanks, but what is the difference between Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro and Windows 8.1 Pro? Can I have a list of differences or things that are added?

Jon Gerges (3 years ago)
+Sarwar Hossain Join a school?? I don't have a student email, but I have a student ID. I just scanned that to my computer, and i got verified.
Abdullah Hujaifa (3 years ago)
+Tech Tacular hey i am not in school so what do i do in the verification part. plz reply fast
Chris Langley (3 years ago)
Couldn't find a list, but I used it as my daily driver for 6 months, alongside using "normal" Windows 8.1 on a laptop, and didn't notice any differences at all.
lekoro1 (3 years ago)
embedded is for things like ATM terminals and sat navs
