Why are you hiding your virtual NIC name and virtual MAC address?

I dunno, it isn't needed and I'm being quite careful about stuff like that ;)

It's asking me for what drivers to install during main install, what do?

You are behind a Natted network within your LAN behind your router. The NIC model is the same in everyone's VirtualBox and the MAC address is randomly generated.

I used all recommended settings, it didn't ask me anything specific.

Thanks, good to know :)

Well I guess I'm the only one who's stupid enough to run it as my main OS... :D

I had nothing else to do.  I made it my main as well.   :P    from Win 7 Ultimate.  B)

 

Whats a proper test if not a real world one.  (worse case scenario I re-install win 7 and wait for 10.)

 

I haven't noticed anything wrong outside of having to re-install my GFX driver

 

So far I like the UI and the multi-moniter support.   Got rid of all the tiles and Apps ASAP after install.

Has anyone who has installed this developer preview and has a 4k monitor messed around with the settings to see if there is anything with text scaling, or is that still in the pipeline for some future version?

Just tried out Windows 10 Dev Preview 64bit with Virtualbox. But I'll think i'll wait until Oracle updates its Guest Additions to have a better experience with Windows 10.

How are they updated do i download the new pack and replace the old one or is it via an auto update?

I would believe that it would be a update either on the whole VirtualBox (ie a version update) or a Guest Additions ISO that you are able to download to update it.

Told it not to import my settings from my account. Did it anyway. Dicks. 

Anyway so far not way to buggy. Other than the AMD HDMI underscan issue I had with no CCC It's been smooth so far. 

Fix for that

Gotta say, I'm loving the multi desktop feature. Bound it to the side button of my mouse like I do with mac/linux. 

If you click a window from the other desktop in the task bar, it switches you to that desktop. Neeto. 

Might make this my main setup at some point. Makes having all of my music, dev windwos, and internet browsing separate, and easy to navigate. 

There's a multi monitor feature that makes your mouse stick towards the edge of the screen a bit, and you cant cross in the corners. Not sure how I feel. Im sure a lot will love it, as everyone complains about closing windows on your left screen being hard, but I've never had that issue.

For anyone with slow downloads or something right now, I was able to download Windows 10 Enterprise via TechNet much faster than downloading the ISO off of the Insiders page as well as torrents.

You're crazy :P

I was considering it as well, but I don't know about stability and licensing - will Microsoft take down my system when W10 gets released?

Because VirtualBox doesn't allow x64 windows WM's, atleas for some reason i cant use then on 4.3.16. I am assuming that is what the OP is using as well, as it is the newest version.

Virtual box does support 64 Bit guests, you just have to be sure to specify that your installing one. I ran 10-x64 and 8.1-x64 for a while today on virtual box in my Mac. Only reason I uninstalled it all is because I switched to VMware on my Mac. It's all reinstalled and running again.

Okay guys, here are bugs/easter eggs that I found so far, I'll put them all in the first post.

 

Two task managers

Charm bar still exists (if you click on search in apps)

Clipboard doesn't work (at least for me)

 

Sent from Windows 10

Same as cmd, and command. Same program, different launch location. Clipboard works for me just fine within 10 and from host to VM and vice versa. Charms bar is still there normally, just can't mouse into it, have to use Win + C.

Downloading this right now and installing it in a VM later... 

This would be a great contender for a pinned topic.

So how feasible for a gamer is this to run as a daily driver? I wanna reformat my SSD badly and was thinking of just getting this since I was gonna get win10 when it drops anyways. 

nvidia drivers ok?

Corsair Link?

Steam?

Game compatibility?

For starters taskbar breaks every other reboot, and snapping is broken.

it's basically a 8.1 service pack, anything that works with 8.1 still works

 Glad to hear that, Will wait for a few more opinions on the matter before taking the plunge but it makes me optimistic.

I was advised in another thread to not do it not til its RTM I was thinking of putting it on my 2 in 1 though as a secondary OS. Are there any guides to running 2 OSs on here? I've never done it before.
