Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 9879 Installation Failure

Well, I’m 0 for 2 on this one.

New preview build is out, and I’ve tried to install it twice and it has failed both times.  It runs through the entire process, including one reboot, and then it fails, popping up a dialog box that reminds me of Windows 3.1 or something, saying one or more components couldn’t be installed.  It then reverts back to 9860 (and thanks for that actually, the reversion seems to work just fine).

I’ve tried it on a fairly ‘limited’ universe, my Surface Pro 3 and on a MacBook Air.  I’m going to try on my Dell Dimension next.

I’m not sure where it might log the error, can’t say that I’ve looked.  At all.  Once I get past the more immediately important Visual Studio 2013 Update 4 and Visual Studio 2015 Preview installs, I might look for it.
