    Unable to enable Preview Builds plus two other annoyancies


    I'm an Insider and when Microsoft first offered users to upgrade their PCs to the first build of Windows 10, I signed up and installed the build. Up til a few days ago, I had no issues save for a mysterious condition in which my PC failed to wake from sleep or fully reboot, explained more later. I decided to do a reset and the first time my PC rebooted, it didn't complete so I had to manually power cycle the PC; this happened a few times. Eventually my PC displayed a Welcome page (where you setup the PC before actually using it). The problem was that my mouse (wireless) and keyboard (wired) weren't usable. So I got out my USB stick and did a restore but of course I accidentally picked "Format" so it erased the drive.

    Issues:
    1. The inability to use my keyboard/mouse after a reset is annoying and Microsoft can't help.
    2. Why my PC will not reboot/wake up all the time is also annoying.
    3. I'm no longer able to enable Preview Builds.

    Things I've tried:
    - Verifying the registry (see attachment)
    - Verify the service Background Intelligent Transfer is running
    - Windows Update is set to Automatic but after a reboot, it's never started.

    Any useful help is appreciated.

    :)

  2. Getting error message" There’s a problem with getting preview builds... Your preview build settings need attention. Go to advanced options to fix this issue"

    Original title: Unable to get Windows 10 preview builds

    I am unable to get the laest windows 10 insider builds. I have enabled the option to get preview builds . But whenever I check the windows update it displays this message.

    "There’s a problem with getting preview builds... Your preview build settings need attention. Go to advanced options to fix this issue."

    I have tried the option "Fix Me" in advanced settings and restarted the computer but the problem still persists.
