    Need a bit of clarification on windows 10 (1511 Update)


    Hi...
    I have three PC's all running windows 10/64 bit...
    Two of them were running (Build 10525) this PC's auto downloaded the windows 10 update a while back and are
    curentley running (Version 1511 OS Build 10586.36)...
    The one I am having a problem with is running (Build 10240) this computer is the reason for this post...
    For some reason this PC (does not or will not) auto download the windows 10 update (Version 1511 OS Build 10586.36). It will auto download updates for the small stuff like for windows defender.
    When I manually check for updates and it says "Your Device Is Up To Date"...
    I did a lot of checking for some kind of answer for my problem but did not find a specific answer...
    My question is (Do i have to update from (Build 10240 to Build 10525) in order to get (Version 1511 OS Build 10586.36) Or will it eventuley find and download the update on it's own...
    Side Note...
    Window 10 is activated... I bought the windows 7 pro key from Microsoft... I did the free upgrade to windows 10...
    OS Name: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
    OS Version: 10.0.10240 N/A Build 10240
    OS Manufacturer: Microsoft Corporation
    Original Install Date: 8/16/2015, 9:41:39 PM


    I have updates set to automatic...
    I do not have defer checked...
    I do not have a old windows in this PC... I deleted it...
    I have plenty of disc space...
    ...Thanks...

    No. I don't think build 10525 is even available for download from Microsoft.

    At this point it probably isn't going to update on it's own. Why not download the version 1511 build10586 Windows 10 ISO from Microsoft and manually update?

    ............For some reason this PC (does not or will not) auto download the windows 10 update (Version 1511 OS Build 10586.36).......................

    I have no answer as to why it won't find the 10586 update.
    The only suggestion I can offer you is to use one of the following 2 download links, download the ISO file and do an in-place upgrade install.

    Media Creation Tool (MCT)
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10

    Tech Bench
    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softw...load/techbench

    Download the ISO file > right click at the iso > click Mount > click Setup.exe.
    You can keep the settings, files and apps.
    No product key needed.
    Activation is automatic.

    Thanks for the quick comeback guys...
    I went with... Option Two... Download Windows 10 ISO using Media Creation Tool...

    I need to very careful with this PC it's got 4 drives in it and if I mess up it will take me a long long long time to
    get everything back to normal... LOL...
    Do I have to save the windows 10 key that is activated on my machine at this time...
    Or is it stored in my Microsoft account... I'm using now...
    Will my Microsoft account stay the same after the iso upgrade...
    Let me know what to expect during and after the upgrade...Thanks

    Once your Win 10 is activated, you can reinstall as often as you want, whenever you want. Activation will be automatic. There is no product key to safe-keep.

    All you need to do now is to make sure you install the windows updates which will update your version from 10586.0 to 10586.36

    Thanks davidhk
    I'm going to get download now...
    I'll wait a few days more see it the update shows up... If it does not... I'll go for it...
    I'm hesitating a bit because if I use the tool or iso upgrade it's going change all the tweaks I've done to get my windows 10 to feel just the way I like it...

    That is a distinct possibility although I have no personal experience on such a situation.
    Since upgrade install allows you to keep your settings, I am sure at least some will get "carried over", but maybe some will not. I'm just guessing now.

    Thanks davidhk
    I was just thinking is there a way to pull the upgrade from one of my other machines and use command prompt to install it in my machine...

    No. You can upgrade only either via Windows Update or via an ISO file from MCT or Tech Bench.
