After installing windows 10 build, I see a boot selection menu each time I reboot your PC.  When I get to this screen, if I do nothing it will automatically boot to the Windows 10 Technical Preview within 30 seconds by default. Can anybody please tell me why is it happening. I would be thankful to them.

Natalie,
 

What are the choices on this boot selection menu?  What colour is the screen's background?  How have you installed 10?... as a dual-boot?  Did you have a previous beta Build installed?

Obviously, I will be able to say more & know better what to say w/ this further info from you.  Thanks.

Cheers,
Drew

Ah, that's, actually, all ok.  Just select or keep using the top choice, the 1st one that says Windows 10 Tech Preview (if I recall correctly).; not the one below that says Previous Build.  It will roll back to whatever of the beta Builds was there before the one currently installed & being used.  Not to worry, that screen will appear, nothing is amiss.
 

Cheers,
Drew

I have been running a technical preview of Windows 10 for a few months and I have never seen that screen. I actually installed my technical preview on top of Windows 8.1, I did not use an ISO for installation. And of course every system is different.

Rocky,

You don't see that screen because you are not dual-booting.  It is not a matter of 'systems' being different.  You only have 1 OS in your computer because you wiped out your 8.1 w/ a beta Windows 10.  To take advantage of the Upgrade offer come 29/7, you will have to re-install your 8.1 via clean "Custom" install of it... then, you can DL & install Win10 using Upgrade path where 8. 1 NOW is.

Cannot go from beta to GA.

This is why people are always advised not to overwrite a current OS w/ Betas.

Cheers,
Drew

I have read and re-read the original post and nowhere did I read that Natalie was dual booting. I myself am dual booting, I am running Windows 10 and Linux Mint 17.2. I guess that maybe I misunderstood Natalie's question.

Rocky,

 

Her having a screen to select an OS suggested she was dual-booting.  Now, I understand you are, too.... just between Linux & Win10 Beta.  Between 8.1 & Win10 beta would be acceptable but, this way your 8.1 is (presently) gone.  I may have misunderstood her, as well, hard to be sure.
I think later it was determined she is only running Win10 beat, also & the screen she mentioned was just between Win10 current Build & the previous Build she had.  I think she, also, wiped out her GOOD OS, be it 8.1 or 7, I'm not sure.

Cheers,
Drew

Natalie, I use a Linux GRUB that I installed, and I see a screen that I configured. As for you, I did not get the sense that you had configured a dual boot set up so that is what caused the confusion. All is good.

So Natalie, are you dual booting two different builds of Windows 10?
