    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.
    You actually can simply mount the ISO to update Windows 10 without using a USB drive. I believe you know this! :)

    Yeah, but I've seen too many experienced members say the update went South on them.
    I am in north and it never arrived, either update through disc or clean install.

    Yes, but I needed to upgrade 3 PCs (2 boxes and a laptop) and didn't want to download the ISO more than once. Of course, I could have copied it to the USB drive and mounted it in each PC that way, but Rufus is fast making an installation USB.

    Sure! Either way will work.

    Update first or went straight to clean install with the ISO ?
    Clean install with my MSDN ISO's. I've done upgrades in the past. My desktop had gone from 8.1 Pro to 10 Pro via the free upgrade. My other PC's too. I then went to Enterprise on my laptop to get access to Windows To Go. I had reinstalled 8.1 Pro on my other desktop PC to test something. Seemed like a good time to clean them all up with clean installs.

    Assuming ISO from MS download site will do the same for me as your MSDN one did. Have Windows 10 Pro that i upgraded from 8.1 then did a clean install after.
    I think they are the same now. Both are multi edition home and Pro. I just put a PID.txt file in the sources folder with the generic Pro key in it. No having to select Home or Pro and no having to click skip several times when asked for a key. This is for my custom install thumb drives. I have one for each PC with OEM info added.

    I was told both Windows 10 version (Home, Pro) are on the latest ISO. As long as skip key works like last time, i am good. TY

    But there were people outside of the US that did get the update yesterday. They posted that they did in this thread.
    I think the reason that was seen in the blog is so people from all over wouldn't all be expecting to see the new build, which is what it is not just another update but "upgrade"! you should be aware of, so the download servers won't be overwhelmed like the activation servers were back during the first week of August. You have to remember that 10 went out to nearly 200 countries which means getting close to the "1 Billion" mark they set as a goal!

    This is getting silly now. Your totally right, people outside the US did get it. Maybe they weren't supposed to. Maybe that's part of the reason for the many failed install attempts. Seems the right hand doesn't know what the left is doing as MS. If there is a particular date I should expect my update in London then I wish MS would just say, then I can diarise it and put the saga to back of the mind. At the moment it's causing a lot of checking and nervousness on the part of users.
    Upgrade of OS not update! On a VM it went like an update since there isn't hardly any there besides a few apps you may put on and no hardwares! Plan on seeing this as another upgrade install where some things will likely need to be reinstalled fresh.

    I found a place to get it so, I won't be crying over the lack of MS support. :)
    While it's easy enough simply using the Media Creation tool for seeing that done and from the genuine source! I start questioning other supposed sources like leaks! Anything leaked on the web if that is what you are referring could be tainted with malwares! The MC Tool download verified the Threshold 2 as being the same as the 10586 but no go on expecting to see any build number. The next batches of OEM goods going out will be seeing this build while systems and devices still in retail inventories will still be seeing the 10240.

    When downloading to save with the MC tool the new VM to give this a look already having the 10586 on another VM started installing on the spot and saw no "skip key" link as the other builds did. Even the 10240 saw that but instead you see a message prompt appear stating you can still install Windows but... blah blah as you would have with any previous version.

    On checking up to see if the new 10 Pro VM got activated not having run it long I ran into a fmailiar sight! "Error code: 0xC004C003" That and finding "Your product key info" with a 5 digit last group in plain view suggesting it will activate on it's own without a key since the 10586 Insider Preview on the other VM activated with a key on the same machine.

    True. The only choice to be made on the download screen is whether one needs the 32-bit version or the 64-bit version. Installing over the previous Windows will automatically install the same, would have to do a clean install to change to a different 'bitness', I had to do one and used the DVD I had made from the downloaded .iso file.
