    If we will can to boot it dirrectly from vhd file, then we do not need to flash it, just put it on any hard/usb drive and add into bootloader

    Hi everyone - a noobie here
    Hoping you can point me in the right direction...

    I have a Lenovo Yogabook (Atom Processor); had it for sometime and find it extremely useful and versatile as a counterpart for my Surface Pro

    It has recently had challenges installing the latest Insider Builds and thought I would try with the XDA generated Windows 10X installer. Everything is ready to 'rock n roll' but it requires the 'RealeaseType: Test' and not 'ReleaseType: Production' UUP files, but I am unable to find them... anywhere :(

    Any pointers would be much, much appreciated

    Thank you :)

    Thanks @drew84 ;)
    Downloaded the 'test' package but still saying same thing...
    But now you've pointed me to the thread, I'll give it some 'hacking' and see what I can do :worthy:

    The problem is the file is clearly not being flashed properly somehow going by the strange partition layout. VHD or not. You put a non-bootable partition setup on a VHD, guess what? It still isn't going to do a thing.

    You doing something Wrong. Instruction tested and correct and show command to flash correct partition number from VHDX to hard drive, then it show you how to fix partiion table.

    Hi again peeps
    My apologies if I need to be more educated with this stuff - it maybe beyond my reach...
    I followed the instructions for the XDA Developer 10x install and it indicated that I need the 'test' files and not the 'Production' files
    @drew84 pointed me to UUP Dump - Thank you :)
    When I click the link for [Test amd 64] (not allowed to put links in until I've done 5 x posts) and click through the links, it says the 'Total download size is 4.39Gb'
    When I click 'Create Download Package' it downloads '20279.1002_amd64_en-us_lite_fa8904cc' which is just 2mb

    Sorry to be so 'thick', but what am I missing - besides a few grey cells?
    Do I need to be fluent in php or C++? - If so I'll back off now ;)

    Thanks everyone :)

    Well, I thought it was all going good...
    Started the build and it ran to it's completion after around 1.5hrs
    The CMD prompt finished with the standard drive location, awaiting input...
    Looked like W10 was still in situ, so I rebooted - and it just fired-up in the normal W10 :/

    Thought I would 'reset' the PC and start from scratch - that won't work either now - 'Required file are not trusted'
    "A good day to die...." o_O

    Any ideas?

    I used the MS Store Emulator + Build 19578.1
    I had a few hoops to jump through but now it runs good
    Installed on (host) MS W10 Prelease Build 21318 as insider.

    Thanks for this.... but my Yogabook is stuck on Build 20211 and won't update from this - tried all sorts. This is why I thought I'd try 10x - Oh so close...
    Guess I'll have to wait for a more elegant solution :(

    Thanks for this
    I had a browse on the MS website and it recommended 8Gb RAM
    My YogaBook has only 4Gb and an Atom Processor, so it may defeat the purpose as I don't want to install on my Surface or Desktop at this point
    But nice to have the links etc - appreciated
