    Installation upgrade problem


    Have been running the W10 preview since its release without problems.
    Today tried upgrading to the new version without success.
    In desperation I deleted the early version installed on a separate SSD thinking I could get a reinstallation using my earlier W10 ISO. Without success.
    Can anyone suggest how to reinstall this new version as it appears their is no new ISO available.
    Although on start up I still get the choice between W8.1 Or W10 I can only open W8.1

    How did you delete the OS? With only a simple delete or Clean command you may be able to undelete it using Partition Wizard Partition Recovery Wizard - Video Help.

    Thank you for your reply, unfortunately because I could not open the o/s after updating, it stating there were faults it could not rectify, I decided to format the drive in the belief that my original ISO would load.Unfortunately not possible.
    I have finally solved the problem by reinstalling the original ISO using the US version instead of the UK one from the Neowin website. At 85% it stopped loading but was able to restart the download by "pause and restart" and have since successfully upgraded to build 9860.

    There is no new ISO. Microsoft is requiring everybody to do the upgrade so they can test how it works.

    So if I just got a new ssd in the mail and wanted to put the 10 on it I would use build 9841 to install then let windows update put 9860 onboard. Yes?

    Or you could have followed Kari's tutorial if you could boot the new 9860 build to create an ISO:
