Windows 10: 10122 won't install on my USB external HD

    10122 won't install on my USB external HD


    I have a WD Passport drive which I managed to install Build 10074. Everything works great. The upgrade to 10122 downloaded but stopped short of the full install with an error message that can't install on a USB drive. What?? Its already on a USB drive. Any ideas?

    Tried to find the ISO download and would start over with that but looks like the only way in fast ring up date.

    No ISO released but MS did release the ESD files that you can create a ISO from.


    Then use the ESDtoISO tool to create a ISO file from which you can burn a DVD or make a installable flash drive.

    That is not a Microsoft site by the way. Those are likely ESD files somebody saved while doing the online upgrade. Just a heads up.

    EDIT: I gat an access denied message on the download links on that page.?
