    Update presumably finished downloading, it took a while , then said it had problems installing some updates and it will retry later and or to retry later only 59.3 MB in c:\ $Windows ~ BT folder mostly from 10/29 no .

    No 10586 th2 media install tool download .exe in there either .

    Update re try says my device is up to date but I'm still on 10240 on this primary NTFS partician .

    Maybe it will happen later . :shrug:

    Sent from 10240 RTM
    Download the Media Creation Tool. I did a clean install with it and it took between 20 and 25 minutes. (I forgot to check the finish time.) Or follow Gramps' instructions. That looks simple.

    Normally, you should be able to update to it in Windows Update.

    You will need to be sure to perform an upgrade install like in the tutorial below, and not a clean install. :)

    as of 9:35am here, nothing shows up in Windows update, no hidden C:\$Windows.~WS, I guess I am punished by microsoft for disabling "updates from more than one place".

    Wow, this update sounds like a disaster reading all this. Are there actually any success stories from updating via the normal Windows update method? The average user is not going to up for media creation/ISO jiggery pokery. It's making me very nervous about getting home and a) the update even showing up and b) the thing actually downloading and then installing

    And we have this stress to enjoy every 4 to 6 months!

    Is the $Windows.~WS folder suppose to be there before you get the update from WU, or does it get installed afterwards?

    Can someone explain to me why is everyone so excited and impatient to upgrade? From what I've read, this update doesn't really offer that much for normal users and is mostly aimed at business consumers.
    Because most of us are running both Windows 10 RTM and Insider Preview Builds? And we're gluttons for punishment?

    Also, although some of us only use our computers at home, a large number of us are also business users. I'm one of those who has retired from the active workforce, but still do a lot of volunteer work, some of which is for my subdivision.

    Need another reason? A very large number of us actively support those who need it, both here in the Forums and in our everyday life. We need to know everything there is about Windows 10.
