For Windows 10 users it's a bit easier.

But while some PCs were able to install the build, phones were not, causing the device to crash upon booting up, leaving users with no option other than to restore through the Windows Device Recovery Tool. Officials hinted that PC testers would be getting 16203 and mobile testers a new "Feature 2" release, Build 15220, of Windows 10. However, within 30 minutes another tweet from Sarkar advised Windows Insiders to not install any updates that were now being offered unless Microsoft told us about them along with a blog post describing the build.

If you have downloaded the build and have not installed, you will need to do a reset by going to Settings Systems About and then check your Insider programme settings to ensure you are on the right ring.

And "other events with vehicles" could leave the door open for roller coasters or perhaps an F-Zero racing attraction. It was unlikely Nintendo and Universal would name the park after WiiU game Nintendo Land, but it would have also fit.

As for PC users who've installed the internal Windows 10 build will not face any drastic rebooting loop issues like the mobile preview build.

According to Microsoft, the update wasn't fully tested with the firm stating that, "this build was never meant to go out to Windows Insiders and may include issues that impact usability of your PC". Once the re-flash is complete, you can join the Windows Insiders program again. Invoke is a powered by Cortana with 360-degree speakers, Skype calling, as well as smart home control via voice commands Although HP seems to have created the hardware of the device as a companion to its Windows 10 PCs, it will still function and perform well as a full Cortana speaker.

Last night proved to be bad for Microsoft, the company "accidentally" released some confidential and internal Windows 10 builds to the public on PC and Mobile. If you see a new build ready for your device over the weekend, avoid it. Microsoft has pledged not to release any new builds this week to give everyone time to return to the righteous path. Dona Sarkar of Windows Insiders community tweeted warning both power users and testers not to update their PCs/mobiles with the new update. My monitoring of social media showed that quite a few users were unable to stop their own download/install processes with this incorrect build and now had mobile devices stuck in a boot loop. The company didn't go into specifics, but anyone concerned about the ramifications of installing this build can just roll back to a previous version of Windows 10, provided they do so within the next 10 days and haven't run Disk Cleanup.
