Windows 10 Pro Technical Preview

Every desktop Windows computer system (4) that I use for home and at work is running Windows 10.  Right now on my home system I am on Build 9926.  I do not advise doing this for the average user, but since I use computers for a living I dive in with both feet.

I hope that after today's exercise I will never have to go down this road again. It took me a while to wade through all of the stupid web sites that say they have the correct software to do this but they have links to the software wrapped in male-ware.  I finally got the source links to get the job done.  This guide was very helpful and I followed it after I had Odin and the correct firmware downloaded.  After the rOM upgrade I had a "Uids on the System are Inconsistent" error on re…
