    Downloaded MCT on late Thursday night. Took Friday off to play golf and refused to install any software on "Friday, Thirteen."

    Just installed 10586.3 on Hyper-v with Win 10 Prof 10240 and upgrade from Win 8.1 Prof without any problem.
    The smoothest upgrade ever. Will install on the Real Desktop and laptop later pending testing:
    Browsers:
    1. IE 11
    2. Edge
    3. Chrome
    4. Firefox


    Disk Backup software:
    1. Acronis Trueimage 2015 and 2016
    2. Macrium Reflect Free
    3. MS backup/restore

    Office

    1. Office 2007
    2. Office 2010
    3. Office 2013
    4. Office 2016

    ...

    Will be busy all morning running tests!

    So far so good!

    Good to hear and I've not encountered any issues as well.

    Just did a clean install on my wife's laptop. I used a stock unmodified ISO as a test. I started the install, went to custom and deleted all the partitions so there was no trace of a previous OS. Quit the install and started over from scratch with a blank hard drive. I was not asked to chose Home or Pro and not asked to enter a key. 10 Home was installed by default and activated. Checking activation it states it activated with a digital entitlement. This PC was running 10 Pro with a digital entitlement before I wiped the drive. It looks like it read and used the Windows 8.0 Core OEM embedded key. 10 Home was never installed or activated on this laptop. Just a heads up for those doing a clean install on a blank hard drive. My next step is to run showkey and see what keys it shows. Then I'm going to change product code and enter the generic Pro key and see what happens. Will report back.

    EDIT: showkey shows the installed key as the 10 Home generic key. And lists the 8.0 OEM key. I just entered the generic Pro key and its upgrading. I'll post back when done and I check activation again.

    EDIT: Upgraded and activated without issue. Activation shows activated with a Digital Entitlement. Settings > Update & Security > Activation

    Quick question......

    Just finishing my new build........purchased Win 10 Pro, retail full version which came on a USB stick......

    Is it best to download this new build and do my fresh install to my new M.2 drive and just use my retail full version key during the install.....

    Thanks for you suggestions..

    OMG, It's fine. Updated via windows update. Took 20-30 mins. Been checking everything out after. All seems ok. I am pretty stunned! I expected the worst
    Congrats! I have just finished the same update. Took about 3.0 hours to download and complete the install (I only have a 4Mbps ADSL connection)
    My heart was in my mouth for those 3 hours! If something had gone wrong I wouldn't know how to fix it. I'm going to have a cold beer now in celebration

    No, it doesn't. Only Home or Pro. Won't work with the Education version either. And I don't think Enterprise will be updated via Windows update either. Not to a new build anyway. Just a hunch at this point. You may have to do it manually with an ISO. You'd have to go to where ever you originally got your enterprise Edition for the install/upgrade media. I'm running Enterprise on my laptop but have already clean installed 10586 with my MSDN ISO. The only thing on it was Office and MDOP.
    Enterprise (perhaps Education also?) now have their own WU server system which has been separated from Pro and Home. The Store is different as well. It's in Shawn's OP in Aul's announcement under "Simplifying IT for Continuous Innovation".

    YES, use the new media ISO and enter your product key

    Thanks, for your comments, I don't expect any problem. But it is my duty to perform tests so they can COUNT on me. Just kidding, have a great day, Count!
