Does this Search window work this way for anyone else ?

I have Win 10 installed as a VM.
I figured out what is causing my issue.
If the Win 10 VM window (VMware Player) is in windowed mode (I can see the Host Win 7 taskbar) the search input field is not displayed.
There is enough room to display it, it just isn't displayed.
With the Win 10 VM in full screen, the input field is displayed and the search works.

Thanks to everyone for the help and the links to the Hash Checking tools!

I wonder if they're going to f-up W10 for rushing it like they did Vista... :O

For example instead of...
Code:
<cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="wim:X:/sources/install.wim#Windows 8.1 PRO" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />
... use
Code:
<cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="wim:X:/sources/install.wim#Windows TECHNICALPREVIEW" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />

Works for me, thanks again Kari!
