Windows 10: Win10 downloaded, how do I start installation?
Win10 downloaded, how do I start installation?
I'm running Win7 Home Premium and did not get a prompt (nag) for Win10, but initiated a download. I think it has completed the download, since I have 2.93 GB in a folder marked Windows10Upgrade on the C: drive.
I'm up to date on all Win7 updates. How do I initiate the Win10 installation? I'm on a metered connection and do not want it to download again! Will the Media Creation Tool work? thanks, David
It should happen automatically. However, you can force it:-
Look for a hidden file called install.esd
Convert that to an iso using
ESD to ISO - Create Bootable ISO from Windows 10 ESD File - Windows 10 Forums
Then mount that iso as a disk image (use tool like virtual clone drive), or use rufus to copy files to a usb drive.
Then click on setup.exe to upgrade.
Just curious, has anyone else here ever seen a folder called Windows10Upgrade created by a genuine Microsoft upgrade? I've never seen it nor heard of it.
thanks for the comments... I got it downloaded and installed okay. David
win10 says every downloaded file comes from a different pc and asks if im sure i want to open it.
this is opening the files from file explorer, not firefox, where that question is expected. windows smartscreen and user account control nagging...
Windows 10 has downloaded, restart to complete installation, I DO NOT WANT WINDOWS 10!
HOW DO I STOP IT FROM INSTALLING?
AND HOW DO I KEEP IT FROM INSTALLING IN THE FUTURE?
Early August the Win10 upgrade files downloaded automatically on my laptop running Win 7 Ultimate 64bits. I was willing to make sure that the upgrade would succeed so I would only install a pretty stable and mature version of Win10.
I was looking at the files on my x86 laptop this morning and noticed Windows-BT downloaded at 5.30AM
My PC has downloaded all of the Windows 10 installation files in the $Windows.~BT folder, but I have not had any installation notices. Does anybody know how to initiate the installation?
I've read not to click the setup application in...
