    Thanks davidhk, I will try it again. I downloaded the ISO from there last night. Maybe, as suggested the ISO is bad...

    Those are the steps I took to try to install as well.

    I live in the sticks and have satellite interwebs, so it'll take me awhile. I'll let it go overnight

    Thanks again and I will post back with results once I have a fresh download of the ISO
    Remember. The method I posted to you do not require you to burn the iso to a DVD or USB.
    The iso will remain in your chosen folder. You can burn it after you have successfully installed Windows 10.

    Took my PC (it's an all in one) to a buddies house in town and used his T1 connection. It is now on checking for updates.



    I will post back with results.

    If you end up doing a clean install, do you have your Windows key # so when it asks for your Windows key, you know what it is??
    Their is a program on here that can find your Windows key info, if you don't have this information already.

    Sorry to hear it failed again

    I'm pretty much out of ideas too, maybe try again without allowing it to check for updates?

    Boot from USB and try install W10 update, if that fails then clean install might be the only option to move to 10586. I would be tempted to stay on the existing version, it's frustrating when users go above and beyond what should be needed to move to the next W10 version and it doesn't work.

    W10 was introduced with the idea that all OS upgrades would come through windows update, and upgrading would be virtually seamless to the end user. What a miserable failure that's been, I'm sure there are many, many W10 computers still on 10240.

    Is that what this user was trying to do, Upgrade from 10240 to 1511 ?? ....by ISO According to Brink, this can't be done this way.
    User has to upgrade to 1511 only thru Windows Update. Which I didn't know until few hours ago, when Brink was telling this other user, same thing.
