Update: It looks like the final version of Windows 10 is also affected by this issue. Start Menu does not open when upgrading from Windows 7 or Windows 8 on Windows 10.
Some users use Windows 10 Technical Preview (Build 9926) are facing a strange problem: Start Menu (Cortana / Search) do not work (click Start Menu and do not show up anything).


Start Menu on Windows 10

Guidelines fixes
Open Windows PowerShell as an administrator
Right-click the Start button
Select Command prompt (Admin)
Type in Powershell commands and press Enter
Paste the following command in Windows PowerShell window and press Enter:
Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$ ($ _. InstallLocation) \ AppXManifest.xml"}
Wait a complete PowerShell commands. Skipping a few errors (red) may turn up.
At the end, try to hit start and hopefully it will start working. If not, you do not luck: D.
So still do not succeed the way on how they do it?
Please create a new user account and delete the old user account. Wish you success offline!
