Download and Install Windows 10 Technical Preview Screenshot Tutorial
Heres a screenshot tutorial on how to download and install Windows 10 Technical Preview or Windows 10 TP
Follow these steps to download Technical Preview:
1) Sign up for the Windows Insider Program.
2) Read the system requirements.
3) 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.
Download the ISO from Here
You'll find the Product Keys on the same site.
4)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.
Disclaimer from Microsoft:
You'll need a third-party program to convert the ISO file into installable media—DVD burning software often includes this capability.
Remember, trying out an early build like this can be risky. That's why we recommend that you don't install the preview on your primary home or business PC. Unexpected PC crashes could damage or even delete your files, so you should back up everything.
If you want to stop using Windows Technical Preview and return to your previous version of Windows, you'll need to reinstall your previous version from the recovery or installation media that came with your PC—typically a DVD. If you don't have recovery media, you might be able to create recovery media from a recovery partition on your PC using software provided by your PC manufacturer. You'll need to do this before you upgrade. Check the support section of your PC manufacturer's website for more info.
After you install Windows Technical Preview, you won’t be able to use the recovery partition on your PC to go back to your previous version of Windows.
It was a good day and my Internet Speed was pretty fast, shockingly :P and i was able to download the 4 gigs File in half an hour.
Since I use a Macintosh System, I Decided to use Windows 10 TP as a Virtual Machine Using Parallels Desktop.
The Configuration I used was
Video Memory: 512 MB
Following are the Instructions for installing Windows 10 Technical Preview.
1) After you boot from the ISO, select Install Now from the First Screen
Select the Desired Language to Proceed
2) Select the Type of Installation you desire
If you are currently running on a Windows 8 or 8.1, and want to retain all your current Data and install Windows 10 TP, you may choose the Upgrade option.
Otherwise, for a fresh install, select Custom Option.
Please Note that this is a Technical Preview Version of Windows and not a Complete Build. Please make sure you backup all your files, as this is not a stable build.
3) In this step, you have to choose the Hard-Drive where you desire to install.
If you want a Fresh Install, format the drive before(Make sure you backup your files before)
If you are planning a Multi-Boot System, be careful while choosing and formatting the Hard-Drive Partition. You may end up choosing your current System Partition.
4) Accept the Terms and Conditions to Proceed
After This, Windows will Install and then the PC will Reboot.

5) After the PC Reboots, it will take some time to configure itself and get Ready.
6) In this Step, You Will have to Sign in to your Microsoft Account. Local Account doesn't appear in the Options.
You Will also have to choose whether you want to Enable or Disable One Drive Integration and Express Settings or Custom Settings.
7) After this, Windows will Install the Apps, and you're Ready to Go

To prevent others from getting serious problems iīm repeating what I posted yesterday:
"Windows 10-TP has been released !
Windows Technical Preview - Microsoft Windows
But, be careful what you download and run !
- Remember, trying out an early build like this can be risky. That's why we recommend that you don't install the preview on your primary home or business PC. Unexpected PC crashes could damage or even delete your files, so you should back up everything.
- After you install Windows Technical Preview, you wont be able to use the recovery partition on your PC to go back to your previous version of Windows. "
After registration, when you are on the download-page, the purple download-button links to a small exe-file (4.6 MB).
This seems to be an online-installer that will install W10-TP on your main partition = C-disk !
Which means replacing your existing O/S !!!
Further down at the page:
"Looking for ISO files?
If you're an advanced user and want to install the preview on another partition, another PC, or a virtual machine, we recommend you download the ISO files.
Get the ISO files
On that page you will find a "full" offline-installer, fx. the English 64-bit version is 4.1 GB
Be really careful, make sure that you download (and later "burn") an ISO-file and not the online-installer mentioned above !

And, since you didnīt mention how to boot from an ISO-file, here are instructions for an easy option, requering only a USB-memory.
Download Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool: Microsoft Store
Directdownload-link: Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool - Home
Connect a USB-memory to your PC.
Run Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool and create a bootable USB-drive.
Reboot and select to boot from the USB-drive.
This is faster than burning a DVD, and also cheaper since you donīt have to waste a DVD....
