    Stuck in Windows Update during Win10 download


    When trying to download the Win10 upgrade, it first takes me to Windows Update. It says "Check your PC before upgrading. Before installing Windows 10 Insider Preview, something needs your attention." and presents a "Check your PC" button. When I click the button, it cranks for about 5 minutes and comes back to the same message and same button.

    Is there a log somewhere where it tells me what it's complaining about? If not, it appears I won't be able to get to Win10. I'm running 8.1 Pro now.

    Thanks for any help,
    Doug

    Good Question


    I clicked in the tray on the icon that had been hounding me for the last several months asking if I wanted to upgrade. It took me through that dialog. When I went to Microsoft's site and downloaded the small upgrade exe it went to the same place. What would I do differently to get the latest code?

    Thanks.

    I found a solution


    I found this in a thread on the Microsoft community:

    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-update/how-can-i-fix-windows-update-error-cumulative/c4372ddc-224c-46dd-856c-53b128b26a6b?auth=1

    The poster said he/she used Solution #2 and that also worked for me. Win10 is now downloading.

    Ah my bad then I thought windows insider builds were beta builds (to test major updates etc) that would be distributed to certain testers in their insider programme . Glad it's sorted hope the install goes well

    Still can't get past Windows Updates


    I went to the thread suggested above and that allowed me to get the download. But it then still goes to Windows Updates. I now have applied all of the updates. It says there are no more available. But how do I get back to the Windows 10 Upgrade? When I close the Windows Updates control panel window, the Windows 10 upgrade is nowhere in sight. When I go to the tray and click it again, it once again goes to Windows Updates! :-(

    This is annoying because I want to get this done before 7/29/2016 to get it for free.

    Thanks for any help.
