Windows 10: Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15002 for PC Insider
Mine did this for a very long time -- maybe 30 to 45 minutes, then it finally started up again and installed.
No ESD to be found am afraid. I looked all over and not seeing it
Same issue, wasn't sure I was going to get it over a leak, but 'BT' folder didn't land; restarted machine, now it's landed! (fingers crossed)
Unless you made the registry changes, as of 14986 and later builds, MS is serving the new builds through its new UUP process. So you won't be getting ESD if you haven't made the registry to reenable ESD. Look at the helpful tutorial Kari created specifically for this.
... Panther folder's unpacked, that's a good sign...
I'm not a friend of long quotes, but as this might benefit our members, I'll quote this post from ESD to ISO tutorial thread here in its entire length:
Like I mentioned, Kari's tutorial is awesome and here he is, kind enough to requote his own tutorial for our benefit. Thank you Kari!
Rats, downloaded just fine, I made ISO but there was error during installation, downloading again. Gonna make bootable USB in case this one doesn't work out again.
Some particularly interesting change.s to existing issues buried in that list
1) HOME users can extend active hours to 18 now
2) Metered connection even for ethernet
3) Ability to stop forced driver updates (except Home)
Update December 14th 2016: Windows 10 Build 14986 released to Slow ring.
