Windows 10: First Major Update for Windows 10 Available

  1.    12 Nov 2015 #190

    Worked On One Machine, Not Others

    I updated my Dell XPS 8300 earlier this morning, and it went smoothly. All executables/files preserved and operational. (It didn't like 8GadgetPack, said it was removed, but then asked if I wanted to run it, and did.)

    A few hours later, I tried to update my two laptops. I got the same thing other folks have been getting - "Unable to update" with a Retry button. Hit the retry, got a restart of the download on one machine, and a notice that the machine was up to date on the other.

    On the first machine, it stopped again, and with a retry said the machine was up to date. I removed the ~BT file and tried again. Still showed as up to date.

    The difference between the machines, other than the time delay, is that the XPS 8300 is a BIOS machine and the others are UEFIs. I don't know if that is making the difference or if MS servers are overloaded and saying that there is no update because of that, or something else is going on.

    All three machines are running a fairly "vanilla" version of 10240, just the gadgets and a firewall controller and some typical privacy settings.

    I'm downloading the ISO and will burn it to a USB and try that way on the two laptops.

    From the bits of info I'm picking up an twitter that seems to be the case, I may reinstall with Pro next time if I'm not going to get the updates as they happen.
    That's understandable since Enterprise is meant for big businesses. It will cause a lot of losses if something goes wrong with automatic updates.

    I just went through the whole hour+ long update on another computer and its still on Build 10240. So it appears the media creation tool does not do the latest upgrade as proposed in several postings in this thread.
    this one does

    I just finished a clean install and things are great so far. Fast and stable. :)

    Still not appearing in WU and I'll probably just download the .esd file and go from there.

    I got it but, not through normal update channel. Through MCT. If you feel confident the new OS is working as advertised you may perform the disk clean up and get back (in my case) 28.2 GB of hard drive real estate. sfc /scannow showing faults and unable to repair some of them (this is new on this pc), 10240 edition had no faults under the scan tool. Go figure.

    This will update to the latest release as of today, if we are already running windows 10?
    Yes, as far as I know. I used my MSDN ISO's

    I now have a USB installation drive downloaded via the Media Creation Tool about 2 hours ago (UK).

    Does this contain both the Home and Pro upgrade variants since I have 2 systems to upgrade? Also does this version of the Media Creation Toll allow me use my retail Windows 8 key?

    Those 2 (Candy Crush and iHeart Radio) plus Twitter, Flipboard and Minecraft seem to be the new ones.
    First time I've seen them, but I haven't been running an insider build.
