    No reason to continue to wait on WU when the .iso files were available. Upgraded without issue and no compelling reason presently to do a clean install.

    If i download the iso using the media creation tool, would i be getting the updated iso that lets one put in their windows 7 or 8 product keys to do a clean install and no longer asks for the key if you had originally done an upgrade and your hardware is now registered on the MS servers?

    Also, if i use it in the future to make a clean install, will it bring in whatever the latest updated version of windows 10 is? (or would it need to update to it) thanks!

    I am asking these questions because i was thinking about using it to do force the upgrade to th2 but i also wanted to have an iso back up on hand for any possible future use (such as doing a clean install if needed)...

    The last in-place upgrade install I did was on October 26, 2015 - have to do one approximately a few days less than 30 days due to the Start Menu not working after a reboot. So I guess I'm looking at another 13 days or so and should Start Menu fail again, I'll just use the techbench ISO that I downloaded yesterday and before then, watch the forums for all the problems people have with the new update.

    Get your win10 here: Tech Bench enjoy. If your winupdate got corrupted during the first update cycle to TH2 Build 1511... then the actual update to this build, as in my case, will not show up.

    Hi guys. Do you know how to force update on Win10 Education? Windows Update is not showing update to TH2 and MCT is not supporting education version of windows.

    Thank-you ClusterHead for starting this thread. Now I understand why my PC didn't receive the update. It's because I had to wipe Windows 10, reinstall Windows7 and then upgrade again to Windows 10 on October 28th. Less than 30 days ago, hence, no upgrade notification.

    Still waiting. I refuse to update manually. I am stubborn that way.

    My son's computer already updated automatically.

    What's funny is it seems like I will always get it done 13-14 days after release as my original Windows 10 RTM 10240 upgrade from Windows 7 Home Edition was on August 12, 2015 which was basically 14 days from the July 29, 2015 release date and my last in-place upgrade was on October 26, 2015 to fix the start menu not working problem which means November 25, 2015 would be the 31st day which is exactly 13 days from the 10586 release date. I'll just be patiently waiting and hope my Microsoft shares will continue going up! LOL. Besides that, November 25, 2015 should be the date when it's available for me so I can really say Thanks on Thanksgiving the next day!

    I'll use the Techbench ISO if my Start Menu stops working before then. Otherwise, I'll just wait for it since one should experience the real upgrade procedure once before using alternatives...
