Windows 10 Technical Preview is now available via the Windows Insider Program

Download Windows Technical Preview:

Follow these steps to download Technical Preview:

  • Sign up for the Windows Insider Program.

  • Read the system requirements.

  • Click one of the Download links on this page to download a special file—it’s called an ISO file—that you can use to install the preview.

  • When the download is complete, transfer the ISO file to installation media such as a DVD or USB flash drive.

  • Boot your PC from the installation media, and then follow the steps to perform a clean install


As this is a very early release of Windows, it is not suggested that you upgrade your normal computer to the Windows 10 TP. Instead you should use a spare computer or even better a virtual machine like VirtualBox. If you decide to go the VirtualBox route, download the ISO and create a Windows 8.1 guest in VirtualBox. Then go into the settings of the guest and mount the ISO as a DVD. When you are ready to install, double-click on the guest to start the installation from the mounted ISO. It will install perfectly, but unfortunately at this time the Guest Additions will not work. I expect a VirtualBox update will be released soon that will allow the guest additions to work.
