    Yep, I made that mistake and now the blasted laptop is updating instead of doing a clean install. Which means I'll have to do the whole thing all over again tomorrow!

    This is a computer I'm getting ready to donate to a little girl who needs it for homework.

    I did a clean install on my desktop and it was flawless.

    Yeah, but I've seen too many experienced members say the update went South on them.

    I've done 3 so far. Enterprise on my laptop and Pro on my 2 desktops. I will eventually do a clean install of Pro on my wife's laptop too. I don't mind starting over with a clean slate.

    Update first or went straight to clean install with the ISO ?

    I downloaded the ISO, used Rufus to put installation files on a USB drive, and used that drive to update 3 PCs in place without so much as a hiccup. And no problems since.
