    Windows 10 Build 10240 not coming through on Build 9926?


    I am currently running Windows 10 Build 9926 due to having issues installing Build 10162 using a USB. I had Build 9926 installed before and successfully updated to 10162 however a failed graphics driver install forced me to reinstall and since Microsoft pulled build updates a few days ago I was stuck with 9926. Microsoft recently released Build 10240, however the update hasn't come through yet for me. I am on the fast ring and signed in with a Microsoft Account. I was wondering what is the normal time window for a build update to come through?

    You should have had the update by now mate, I suggest you clean install a later version than the one your on, if your computer can take it and try to update from there.

    I think there's a chance that since build 9926 is so old you may not be able to upgrade to 10240.

    OK will try to install a later build. Do you think Build 10122 should receive the update?

    I would try out 10166 but I had issues going from that to 10240 for some reason yesterday. I had to get a copy of the ISO(from a good source) and perform the upgrade from there.

    Managed to find an ISO for 10166, just downloading now ~5 hours to wait. Only problem I may have is the product key since I don't have it. Hasn't Microsoft disabled product key activation now for Windows 10 Builds?

    I was still able to activate that build today so you may as well.

    Hi there

    Note that this is now TH1 not the old fbl_impressive branch. You need to have been signed up to receive Insider previews and logon with an Ms account to get the update. Builds 10162 / 1016 I think are the last builds available without using an Ms account.

    I think also that if you aren't already signed up --it's too late -- I believe (could be wrong on this) that Ms has temporarily suspended new people from signing up to receive insider builds until AFTER final release.

    Cheers

Hi there I've been playing all morning trying to get build 10159 to appear as a download or update -- Nothing would (apart from a download of ISO from a torrent site (WD's -OK but only use a torrent iso as a last resort). So I thought --OK...
