//Working (only) with built 10240 RTM (yet)!// -Thanks to Rumbaar.

 

What do you need:

  • Download the Universal Media Creation tool for https://www.microsoft.com/de-de/software-download/windows10 Windows 10 and start it
  • Choose Create installations media for another PC and go to next

     

  • Choose your language, your edition of Windows (pre-installed version is 8.1 home, so -> Windows 10 home) and 32-bit version of Windows

If it's the 10586 version, you'll end up with a non functional system.

Bit it's this the same Intel instructions? Issues are now with the latest 10586 version of Windows.

Hi PauloCesar1301,

In this case, I recommend upgrading the unit following the http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/stck1a32wfc/sb/CS-035724.htm Windows® 10 Upgrade Instructions.

If you install Windows from scratch the warranty will be void and you will need a new license to validate Windows 10, if you upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 the license still continues with the new version.

Regards!

Hey PauloCesar1301,

You can install it from Zero, just click in the Setup of Windows Installation ''Keep nothing'' and it'll be clean installed or you can try to boot from the usb in BIOS and install it this way. (I don't know if this works, didn't test it, because of time lag)

ivanu_intel thanks for your answer too and yes you'll loose your Windows key, I correct the Manual in few minutes. You can download a key Viewer (Win 8.1) to view your key and to reactivate Windows with the new November build (as soon as it works ). I try to find a way to install this too, to the cute little compute stick .
