    Running Windows 10 Insider Preview under Win10




    FIELD NOTES

    Running Windows 10 Insider Preview under Win10


    By Tracey Capen

    Despite the formal release of Windows 10, the preview editions continue now named Windows 10 Insider Preview Program. But at this time, running Win10 Preview in VirtualBox on a Win10 host requires using pre-production versions of the VM application.

    Virtualbox has been a real pain for me w.r.t. Win10 (should have waited a month; lol). The betas along with a few M$ updates saved the day. I actually installed 102322 yesterday. Even better then the last beta. I saw that message a few weeks ago too Tracey; decided not to install that release but instead installed the betas. They work great and quite stable. version 102322 actually made my old Win98 VM boot quick again (not sure why it had a slower before).

    I ran the entire series of Win10 preview builds in VirtualBox 4.3. Starting late May, most of the Universal apps (News, Money, etc.) either crashed immediately or displayed only a blank window. That was finally fixed by finding the 4.3.31 Guest Additions build. (I tried VirtualBox 5.0, but it crashed repeatedly. I don't recall what built that was, but it wasn't a test build.)

    I finally go fed up and installed Win10 on VMware Player. It runs perfectly, with no issues.
