    I downloaded the ISO instead.. Upgrade by windows update is really slow and it made me mad after so many time trying to make it works. After all, I downloaded ISO and followed the instructions in this tutorial
    It's worked and I think using ISO is better than trying to fix the windows update's problems.

    Windows 7

    I'm getting this error message as well. Hopefully, Microsoft will have a fix for this so that those of us who don't take the ISO disc route can have a complete install.

    But it broke after a long time with something like couldnt install at least 1 update please restart, on all three PCs.

    The $Windows.~BT folder is also different size on the PCs though thats because one is Home the other Pro I guess.

    I read here How to force the Windows 10 install (if you have the files downloaded) : Windows10 that you can do your own ISO and do a clean install and it's activated too that way, but how do I know if the content of the folder really is complete?
    im getting the same error
