Installing Windows 10 Preview on ASUS T100TA 32 GB transformer tablet


I have an ASUS T100TA transformer tablet with Windows 8.1 Update and all of the current critical and security updates installed.

The system has a 32 GB eMMC drive on the tablet and a 500 GB HDD drive on the keyboard. Windows 8.1 is installed on the eMMC, which has the following partitions: 100 MB EFI partition (hidden);, 20.2 GB OS partition (C: drive); 8 GB recovery partition (hidden). The OS is compressed, since Windows Disk Manager says the C: drive partition is used for WIM Boot. Currently my C: drive has about 11 GB free space.

I would like to know whether I can upgrade my system to Windows 10 Preview or not, since until today it didn't get the "reserve Windows 10" app.

Also, I would like to know about the partition architecture my system will have after installing Windows 10. I've read on Microsoft blog that Windows 10 will not need a recovery partition, since the Windows 10 itself runs compressed. After I upgrade my tablet to Windows 10, will I get a full 32 GB partition for the C: drive?

I'm really willing to install Windows 10 on my ASUS T100TA transformer tablet, since I already have Windows 10 Insider Preview installed on my desktop PC and I'm really enjoying it.

Best regards,

Currently you  cannot, but in the future you may be able to. See the Microsoft blog post in regards to compressed os systems ("We’re working on bringing upgrade to low capacity devices").  And some good news.
Have A Nice Day!
