    I have had the same problem with the "Fix" showing in the update Windows window. I run a triple boot system with 3 SSD's each with a different OS: Win 7 HP 64 bit, Win 8.1 pro, and Win 10 build 10166.
    This works for me. Let us know if it works for you.
    Have a great day.

    Shut off your PC and let it sit for about 1 minute and then turn it back on. This worked for me but YMMV.

    I managed to crash it at the Fix Me stage (with an MSA that is an Insider and verified).

    It's possible that it's related to MS suspending some of the Insider functions like activation, I guess.

    I would get the 10166 iso build before they disable the download. You can upgrade using the iso as well. If I understand that info 10162 will no longer activate, they didn't say anything about 10166 not being able to activate.

    Thanks Gary & jm44jg39, I'll wait for the final release as it doesn't bother me.

    Time to make a good full backup. Finally got everything working to almost perfection but not really clear if even registered insiders can register any more if 10166 is clean installed so a full disk backup is a must.
