    Good! I'm delighted for your sake because it is a definite annoyance to have an update lockup at 75% complete...!.....Grrrrrr--r-r-r-rr....;) I've had it happen at 90%+, too--and that is infuriating...;) Not often, though, thankfully. (I keep smiling, though, as I tend to get a bit melodramatic about these things sometimes.) It's been great not to have to turn off secure boot these last few builds, though. It was my last resort, really, if I couldn't get a build to install--if that didn't work then it was making an ISO myself and upgrading that way. There are so many possible unique hardware configurations in the world--probably nearly as many as there are individual human beings running them, I'd imagine--the driver and hardware variations are enormous--and it's Microsoft's job to try and write code that runs on everything--every one of those configurations. If I have bugs and other people don't--that's just the way the computer crumbles--and sometimes it's the opposite with people having problems I don't experience. The joys of beta testing, eh?

    What I suspect (as I only do upgrades--no clean installs) is that some of the flight upgrade files downloaded from Microsoft before my attempt to install them were being corrupted in some fashion not obvious to me, as I have had more than one case of a failed "flight" upgrade through WU but then was able to create an ISO (from the .esd that I got from WU) and do my own local upgrade from the ISO--which would go just fine..! Anyway...it sure looks like everything is coming together here in the final month before the official commercial Anniversary release...but as I say that is only from my limited perspective, of course. I would hope that everyone is having an easier time of it as we close on the release date!

    And then...what? I told myself that I'd get off the Insiders' whirlwind--but I can't...;) It's stimulating to bug-hunt beta software--especially Windows. If I got out of the program then I'd constantly experience a feeling of "being left behind"...heh...;)...and I prefer "riding the wave" and so on...;)

Since you can't get touch to work, looks like you may need to attach a USB keyboard and mouse. I have to do this each time I do a clean install. You can do this with a micro USB to USB hub. You may also need to reinstall the communications drivers.
    How do you attach a mouse and keyboard with only one micro USB port? Do they make a micro splitter to two female USB connectors? I have a micro to usb adapter that I just used to reinstall 8.1 from the Venue 8 recovery flash drive. That worked well. Now I'm in the process of downloading Windows 10 TH2 10586 again.

    Mean time I'll see if I can find a micro to dual USB adapter.

    Edit: Found a Micro to dual USB 2.0 at Amazon Prime.

    For just to download and install chipset drivers you can manage quite well with mouse alone using on-screen keyboard. Have done that often.

    I have a USB to four USB box that I have had "forever". Comes in handy sometimes.

    It's not.

    Yep, TeamViewer takes home the prize hands down. Not even Microsoft's own Remote Desktop solution (I tested on Windows 7) at second place can touch it (60.64% vs 14.56%)!

    And! I had no idea there were so many of 'em out there!

    Clarification of my earlier post on connecting USB devices to a Dell Venue 8 Pro. I use the Dell Micro USB Dongle for Data and Charging (Model XGJT2) available thru Dell for $19.99. To that I attach a Sabrent 4-Port USB 2.0 Hub with Individual Power Switches and LEDs (Model HB-UMLS) available thru Amazon for $6.99. This allows me to power the tablet while attaching up to four USB devices. Very handy for a clean install since touch and Bluetooth are not available. USB boot stick on one port with USB mouse and keyboard on other ports.
