    Unable to Preview Builds


    Going through the process to Preview Builds - get error:

    Failed to check for new preview build, please try again later. 0x80248014

    Ideas?

    Have you installed media center on your system?

    Thanks for the reply. No, not installed.

    However, that got me to thinking - build 9841 was installed as an update to an existing Win 7 installation, complete with numerous apps, settings, tweaks, etc.

    I may need to wipe the partition and install 9841 from scratch then see if it updates.

    Are you connected? I know ... is it plugged in question

    Are you using a local account or an MS account? Try using an MS account.

    Plugged in! But then again some of my connections were known to be a bit shady back in the day.

    Tried both.

    Kari noted that the user profile must be on the C: drive - but that was an install issue. Worth a question - have you moved your user profile?

    There's a file, DONOTREPLACE.txt, in the C:\RecoveryImage folder
    Upgrade will not replace the on-disk recovery image if this file is present. Do not delete or modify this file.

    Build ID: 9860.0.amd64fre.fbl_release.141008-2044

    I think this is new in 9860 but also worth looking into.

    The question is ... do you replace or rename the file to test my hypothesis? I don't know the answer.

    Haven't moved profile.

    File is present.

    Ran SFC.exe which came up with corrupted files but could not repair.

    Time to reload.

    Reinstalled - took about 2 hours.

    Waiting on the MBFH (how many remember that acronym?).
