    Win10 download have auto-resume capability if internet fails?

    Hi All,

    I plan to get a new Win8.1 laptop soon (I would rather get one with Win10 but they're not yet available here in India). My plan is soon after I get the Win 8.1 laptop to download and install Win10. Here in India the 3G cellular internet is slow and unreliable. I'm scared that if I try to download Win10 it will fail and I'll have to start the download from the beginning.

    Someone told me that the Win10 download includes the ability to auto-resume so that if a download fails it can re-start from where it left off once the internet comes back. Is that true? I need to get confirmation on this before I get my new Win8.1 laptop.

    If Win10 download really does have auto-resume capability then I can do the Win10 download and resume as needed if the download fails. without losing data.

    Please confirm that Win10 download has auto-resume capability so downloaded data is not lost. Has anyone directly experienced a Win10 download re-starting from where it left off after losing internet connection?

    No auto-resume that I'm aware of. I've not seen anyone mentioned it in any of the forums I spend time on.

    Is there any place you can take the laptop to do the download more reliably? If so, use the MediaCreationTool to download and create an ISO or bootable flash drive to upgrade from: Windows 10 - Upgrade Installation
