After installing Windows Developer Preview only have a green screen


  • Hello PavelRU,

    It sounds like your download could have been corrupted which is making the screen to be blank and green.
    This error may be caused by a bad burn of the .ISO. Try re-downloading and re-burning the .ISO file.
    Also, it may help to burn using a lower speed if the software you are using to burn the .ISO supports that function.

    On Windows 7, the easiest way to convert this file is to use Windows Disc Image Burner

    Once you download you should check the Sha 1 hash. If it is not correct you could be missing files.
