Windows 10's new installation screen shown off

Last week, we scooped that Microsoft is changing the installation interface of Windows 10, and now we have the first picture of the actual UI. The image, which matches up identically to our report, shows a minimalist take on the previous installation interface.

The new screen focuses around a center ring that acts as a progress bar and along the bottom of the display are the various steps of the installation process. The top of the screen says "Installing Windows 10 Technical Preview" and below that "Your PC will restart several times. Sit back and relax".

Along the bottom, the interface tells you the completion percentage of each individual task too.

Microsoft has been updating nearly every aspect of Windows 10 and this change is one of the final pieces that still had a legacy interface. It's clear that when Windows 10 is released, every piece of the UI will have been updated when compared to Windows 8.

It would appear that, based on this leak, the UI change will show up in the next release of Windows 10 to Insiders. While Microsoft has not released a build in nearly two months, they are changing the process, which means we should soon see builds emerging at a faster cadence.
