    I hear that. I run clean install on main rig . Then I have a laptop that I have been using just updates to see if it compares. Clean is faster and smother. I only use the laptop when the kids are visiting cause they have to have the fastest

    I don't invent these things by myself. If I give advice on something I know, it is based either for the real hard facts, my personal experience or both.

    I knew that my upgrade will fail. For not wanting to type the same second time in a few minutes, this quote shows what I posted elsewhere on Ten Forums:

    Not a big deal, I can take the ESD file Windows Update downloaded and create my own ISO for a clean install or if I want to simply Sysprep Users back to C:, upgrade and finally Sysprep Users again to E: where I usually have it located.

    In the post you quoted was a screenshot of my C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources folder after the upgrade was downloaded but Windows was still preparing the installation. All the installation files were there. Here's the screenshot from the same folder now, it was wiped just seconds after the Windows started the failing upgrade process, about a minute after I had managed to copy the ESD file to a safe place:

    Only the Panther folder there containg some logs.

    I repeat: I don't invent these tips, they are based on reality.

    Pl share the .esd file thru some free servers or by torrent. I tried several times, it failed every time in the mid way and starts again from the beginning.

    Although the Windows 10 Technical Preview is free and freely downloadable, I don't want to find out if it is legal or not for me as a user to share their operating system especially using a third party.

    This is as far as I go: I have made easy to follow instructions. It's your responsibility to get the ESD downloaded over the Windows Update.

    I'm not trying to contradict what you've posted but on my one and only one PC that's what happened repeatedly.

    Are you sure the ESD you have belongs to the latest build?

    What I mean with the question is that let's say you have build 9926 installed, with its ESD file on your system drive, and the upgrade to 10041 fails, you still have an ESD file there but it is not the 10041 ESD, from the failed upgrade, but instead it is the ESD file from the last successful upgrade or install, the 9926.

    The previous ESD file was renamed for one. I restored an image prior to the install, searched for an ESD file and found none. Update fails and I now have an ESD file. Maybe it depends on how, etc. the failure occurs?
