Hi,
has anyone done this.
I have a Surface pro 3 (256GB I7) and would like to use Win 10 Enterprise natively without loosing my existing Win 8.1 setup... its my main work computer.

I have used win 7 USB download tool to install win 10 E on a USB stick, but I can't get it to load.

Your help is very much appreciated

My SP3 would only boot from a USB when I held the volume down button along with pressing the power button.

There are some Windows 10 threads with some tips on getting things to work. Not to toot my own horn, but I also covered the USB drive in a blog post (short version: it has to be FAT32 formatted, not NTFS), here: http://www.thetechchat.com/2014/10/...0-preview-on-the-surface-pro-3-clean-install/
Many thanks ... it worked like a charm ..
can you also help installing it and booting from a VHD .. all that is missing before install I need to use shift+F10 to get CMD prompt to use DISKPART .. but I cannot get the CMD prompt ..
many thanks again

I think some others have been successful in installing via VHD, perhaps they might be able to help.
