How to Install Windows 10 Technical Preview the Easy and Safe Way?

Microsoft has finally released the Technical Preview of its latest Windows version- so called Windows 10. It is said that this new OS is designed to make up for the failure of Windows 8 and integrate the perfect features in Windows 8 and Windows 7. You want to have a try? Here I will show you how to install it easily and safely. 


Part 1: Windows 10 Technical Preview Installment Requirement:



Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster
RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
Free hard disk space: 16 GB
Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver
Others: A Microsoft account and Internet access


Part 2: What’s to Be Done Before The Installation?



1. Backup your entire system. 
This will help you get back to your previous system in case of failing to install Windows 10 Technical Preview. So don’t forget to do this.

2. Backup your data. 
If you don’t want to risk losing your data in your computer you’d better to make a copy of your important data on a removed disk or another spare PC.

3. Ensure you have access to the drivers and applications you need. 
Drivers for basic functions like storage, networking, input, and display come with Windows. These drivers allow you to complete the Windows installation and connect to the Internet. Thus it is essential to backup the drivers. Some applications you use most like Microsoft office is also important. So bear in mind to keep offline installers for these applications.   


Part 3: How to Install Windows 10 Technical Preview:



Considering the safety of your computer I introduce a better option to install the OS-running it on a virtual machine that won't affect your system in any way (except for occupying some space on the hard drive). Let’s go over it step by step:

Step 1: Download ISO of the Technical Preview Preview from Microsoft website. Please choose the appropriate version (32 bit or 64 bit) according to your computer. There is one thing you must to do after downloading it-checking the ISO integrity. You can perform it by using the Microsoft File Checksum Integrity verifier if your computer runs on Windows. 

Step 2: Download and install Oracle VM VirtualBox

Step 3: Run Virtual Box, then click the “New” icon. In the Create Virtual Machine dialog box, type "Windows 10," then click the version selector and choose Windows 8.1 (making sure to match the ISO you downloaded: 32- or 64-bit). Then click “Next”
create virtual machine

Step 4: A window like below will come up. Follow the instruction in the window and continue. 
choose memory size

Step 5: Then select "Create a virtual hard drive" and click Create. Accept VDI (VirtualBox Disk Image) as the file type for the drive, and then choose an appropriate size for the virtual drive. Finally, click Create, then VirtualBox will build your virtual drive.

Step 6: After the process completes, click the Start button in the VirtualBox toolbar. You'll see a box guide you to "Select start-up disk." Click the little file folder next to the pull-down, then navigate to the Windows 10 ISO file you downloaded in Step 1. Then click Start. 

Step 7: Choose the "Custom: Install Windows only (advanced)" option when it presents itself. As usual, the setup process may involve a few reboots.

After finishing all the steps above you’re supposed to start Windows 10 on your computer. Just go to explore the new features you have interest in.

Top 5 Methods to Reset an Unknown or Forgotten Bios Password

BIOS is a kind of software situated as a chip in the motherboard of your computer. It is necessary to create a Bios password because it is able to stop someone booting up your computer system or making changes in your computer. But you may come cross the similar problem to “I made a password to get into my BIOS. How do I get into my BIOS if I can't remember my password?” There is no need to worry. There are many known ways to reset an unknown Bios password. Here I will share 5 effective methods with you:



Method 1: Reset Lost Bios Password by Removing CMOS Battery


Removing the CMOS battery is the simplest way to remove a BIOS password. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget a lot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password. Please follow the instructions below:

Take out the CMOS battery and wait 10 – 25 minutes before putting it back in. The reason for this wait is because the computer can still store power in its capacitors even though everything is unplugged. The waiting period allows enough time for them to discharge. Plug everything back in, power up the computer and enter the BIOS again. If everything went well there should be no more password. In some cases, if you get weird error messages during boot up now, you will need to go to “Load BIOS Defaults” in BIOS and save the changes to fix them.

If this method didn’t work, try one of the methods below.

Note: This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware. Make sure to power down the computer, unplug the power cables and unplug any USB devices if they are powered. The computer must not be able to get power from anywhere for this to work.


Method 2: Use Motherboard Jumper to Remove Forgotten Bios Password


Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings including the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturers label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.

When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.

Note: Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.


Method 3: Performing the Process of Resetting Bios Password with MS DOS Command


The precondition of this method is that you can get into the system when it’s turned on, because this method requires MS DOS.
Open Command Prompt from Programs menu and type in following commands according to the sequence below:
Debug
o 70 2E
o 71 FF
quit
After type in the commands above and restart your system. You will reset the CMOS Settings along with the BIOS password successfully.

NOTE: The first character in the above commands is English alphabet "o" and not the number “0”.


Method 4: Take Use of CMOSPwd to Reset Unknown Bios Password


CmosPwd can help us to remove the password directly from the command prompt. It works under Dos, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 2008, Linux, FreeBSD, and NetBSD. Detailed steps are as follows:
Step 1: Down CmosPwd and unpack the contents of the file in C disk.
Step 2: Get into Windows Start menu, input cmd in the search box and then press enter.
Step 3: When the Dos prompt appears, type in “c:\cmospwd-5.0\windows\”, and then press enter.
Step 4: Type “ioperm–i” and press enter.
Step 5: Now write the command “cmospwd_win /k” and press enter.
Step 6: Choose the second option by pressing 2, and then enter again.
Note: This program only works with the following BIOS:
ACER/IBM BIOS, AMI BIOS, AMI WinBIOS 2.5, Award 4.5x/4.6x/6.0, Compaq (1992), Compaq (New version), IBM (PS/2, Activa, Thinkpad), Packard Bell, Phoenix 1.00.09.AC0 (1994), a486 1.03, 1.04, 1.10 A03, 4.05 rev 1.02.943, 4.06 rev 1.13.1107, Phoenix 4 release 6 (User), Gateway Solo - Phoenix 4.0 release 6, Toshiba, Zenith AMI.


Method 5: With Backdoor BIOS Password

It is said that many computer manufacturers create backdoor passwords for their own technicians to use so they can access the BIOS when the hardware is being serviced. Here are some backdoor bios passwords that have been reported:

How to Get a New Win 7 PC in Win 8 Era?

What do you think about Windows 8? Is it “divisive”? Microsoft's finger-first, device-agnostic reimagining of Windows draws haters like flies and has played some part—how large a part is up in the air—in driving PC sales off a cliff since its launch. Even so, Microsoft isn't backing down, and Windows 8 and its Live Tiles are darn near ubiquitous in stores. However, are we hostages to Microsoft’s hubris? As we already know, Windows 7 is by no means gone and dead while Windows 8 indeed lurks inside the vast majority of consumer PCs sold today. As a matter of fact, we can have the choice of operating system, which takes a little digging.


Method 1: Buy a Prebuilt PC

Maybe you will get surprise that the consumer Windows 7 PC often priced somewhat higher than comparable Windows 8 PC.


It is know to all that the end-of-sales date for computers with Windows 7 Home Basic, Home Premium, and Ultimate is October 31, 2014. Therefore, just hurry up if you need a consumer computer packing Windows 7 operating system. Except for that, what you can purchase may only be the purchase business-focused laptops and desktops powered by Windows 7 Professional. Worst still, those can cost numerous pretty pennies. As a matter of fact, Windows 7 PC price higher and higher. This is because many indows 7 PCs available today already aiming at the Professional version. Dell, Lenovo, HP, and other mainstream PC makers reside in the business category still sold all Windows 7 computer. Outique PC builders, such as Origin and Falcon Northwest, also offer Windows 7 as an option for their built-to-order rigs. But those custom, drool-worthy computers start out expensive and only go up—way, way, way up—from there.

Therefore, you should consider searching for one that has Windows 7 Professional installed using the downgrade rights from a Windows 8 Pro license if you are shopping for a prebuilt PC. In other words, just search for "Windows 7 downgrade" on your e-tailer of choice. In this way, you won't have to pay for a new Windows license if you ever decide to upgrade to Windows 8 or 8.1, thought we’ll talk more about downgrade rights in a bit.

Method 2: Roll Your Own PC

Here are bad news and good news. Hmm, we begin at good news first. The good news is E-tailers apparently stockpiled Windows 7 licenses by the bucketful before Microsoft cut off access. Finding boxed copies of Windows 7 online is dead simple. Even better, Windows 7 Home Premium still sells for its recommended $100 MSRP. Unlike hardware pre-stuffed with Windows 7, there's been no price inflation on the software front.
The bad news is the deadline has passed for buying standalone, boxed OEM copies of Windows 7. Everyday folks simply can't get them from Microsoft anymore.


In the consideration that you are able to fin boxed copies of Windows XP online, then wish to find Windows 7 on sale for a while, though its cost is sure to creep up as availability dwindles over time. Just think twice what you are buying. In fact, some third-party sellers offer "open box" copies of Microsoft's operating system. Steer clear of those. While despondent Windows 8 owners can install a fresh copy of Windows 7 on their PCs, this option is more likely to appeal to folks cobbling together a DIY computer from the power supply on up.

Method 3: Downgrade Windows 8 Pro

If you are not fond of Windows 8 but want a new laptop that comes with Windows 8 preinstalled, it’s possible to switch back to Windows 7 without having to reformat.
If you buying a PC loaded with Windows Pro, the version of Windows designed for business, you can utilize “downgrade rights” to downgrade it to Windows 7 for free. And individual users will have to jump through a number of hoops to downgrade their Windows 8 Pro systems.

 


That is all, if you have any more good tips on these aspect, please don’t hesitate to share with us.
