    If the OS is compressed, there must be some way of verifying that.

    Bingo! My T100TA OS uses WIMBoot. See the Status collumn for the C: drive on attached image. "Inicialização do WIM" means "WIM Boot".

    So, now that we're sure my OS uses WIMBoot, what's next? Can I maintain the hope to install Windows 10, when the RTM version is available? I can understand that Windows 10 Preview may not yet be compatible with WIMBoot, but as Windows 8.1 Update 1 already supports WIMBoot, Windows 10 is expected to support it too. So, I still wander why didn't I get the 'upgrade to Windows 10' icon

    Microsoft says Windows 10 will have native compression that will eliminate the need to use recovery partitions. Also, they say that low capacity Windows 8.1 devices can't be upgraded to Windows 10, at least for now, and they say that they are working on that.

    Windows 10’s compaction is the evolution of WIMBOOT

    Prior to Windows 10, Windows 8.1 achieved significant footprint reduction via a special deployment configuration called Windows Image Boot (WIMBOOT). If you are interested, here is a link to a little blog post about WIMBOOT from last year.
    WIMBOOT enabled specially prepared Windows 8.1 devices to have all the goodness of an efficient compression algorithm without compromise to responsiveness. “Specially prepared” means manufacturers had to use a different install process. The result was only a small subset of Windows 8.1 devices enjoy the goodness of WIMBOOT’s capacity savings. Windows 10 has the compression algorithm seamlessly integrated with the rest of the OS so that the install process is minimally impacted. As noted earlier, Windows 10 can even compress the OS upon upgrade, if a device is suitable and should it need compression.

    We’re working on bringing upgrade to low capacity devices

    The reason Windows 8.1 devices using WIMBOOT are not yet able to upgrade to Windows 10 is because many of the WIMBOOT devices have very limited system storage. That presents a challenge when we need to have the Windows 8.1 OS, the downloaded install image, and the Windows 10 OS available during the upgrade process. We do this because we need to be able to restore the machine back to Windows 8.1 if anything unexpected happens during the upgrade, such as power loss. In sum, WIMBOOT devices present a capacity challenge to the upgrade process and we are evaluating a couple of options for a safe and reliable upgrade path for those devices.

    Yeah, I knew that is how they got Windows on those small tablets. It is really better for you to run this way, I think. I think the compressed files point to "real" files. Maybe those are in the recovery partition and why you can't delete it. Mine was definitely traditional so it worked as advertised. I don't see why you can't be upgraded. If you are fully upgraded and have Windows Update set to automatic, you should get a little Windows icon in the taskbar. That will allow you to register:

    You have to click on the link a couple of times to get to load. Don't know why.

    You can ask here also. A legitimate question:

    I think that I should do another factory reset on my T100TA. After I did my first factory reset 2 days ago, I selected all available downloads on Windows Update. After reading somewhere that Microsoft recommends installing only critical and security updates on low memory tablets, I realized that my choice was stupid.

    What do you think? I bet I'll end up with more than the 10 GB free I currently have. Since Microsoft now says that Windows 10 can be installed on systems with at least 10 GB free, that's the way to go.

    BTW, time is no issue, I'm retired and I'm beginning to enjoy messing around with this little yet powerful toy.

    Best of all,

    Did you ask about the "Windows 8.1+Bing" thing? It appears to be a differentiated product like Pro and Ultimate for "low priced tablets". They were pretty specific that only Windows Home Premium 7 and 8.1 SP1 were to be updated to 10.
