Just a quick note on another Windows 10 Technical Preview installation I did recently. I finally managed to replace 80 Gb Western Digital HDD in old Dell OptiPlex 745 I have at home (child’s PC 🙂 ) with fast and nice 750 Gb Barracuda ES2 (which was freed up after moving all my data to NAS) and decided to install Windows 10 TP on this box.
I can confirm that Windows 10 installation on Dell OptiPlex 745 was smooth and quick and all devices were recognized automatically without any need to search for drivers. The only issue I noticed so far is that non-admin user with non-Microsoft account had some difficulties with installing additional display language – I clicked download language and entered admin password in respective prompt many times but seemingly nothing happens after this, whereas under administrative account additional display language was installed successfully (though I also clicked download more than once until system somehow switched to the new display language). But I guess I need a bit more time to see if Windows 10 works well on this box.
UPDATE: It looks like language is just not yet available so I take my words about adding Russian language back – it can not be added so far. Also I can confirm that Sims 3 runs well on Windows 10 🙂
UPDATE#2 12.2016: This box now runs most current build of Windows 10 without any issues though it has slightly different config – 750GB Seagate HDD + discrete video card which passive cooling system was mangled severely to fit it into this tiny case. All works fine though performance for a person spoiled with high performance laptop with SSD drives it is too sluggish…
