    It has been running great since the install.
    I agree Josey-- even though it took you and me more times attempting to download than anyone else I think. Persistence pays off

    Clicked Retry, will see what happens.

    This is in a Oracle VB Win 10 Pro X64 VM.

    I'm persistent as well and have finally been able to upgrade most of my VMs.

    Try to reset windows update and start again, may help.

    I hope they actually fixed some issues and bugs with this preview. Namely the backup dropdown menu which doesnt list internal ntfs formatted drives.
    They show up here just fine, as long as I don't have system folders on them.

    1 TB SSD = System drive (C:)
    240 GB SSD = \Users data drive (D:)
    1 TB Mech HD = Storage (where I've manually moved my Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders (E:)
    1 TB Mech HD = More storage (mostly ISOs and downloads from various repositories, like DreamSpark) (F:)
    500 GB Mech HD = Backup (G:)
    80 GB SSD = Utilities, like UUP2ISO, ESD2ISO, Snappy Driver Installer, etc. (G)

    As you can see from the pic, It is not showing C / D / E, which I suppose is because, as I said, I have moved system folders to D and E. But the other three show up just fine. And all my drives are formatted NTFS.

    So far this isn't a bad build. It's the first step and well.. if it weren't for the issue installing it this would have been more fun.

    I cna understand your frustration. I've luckily only had those types of issues a few times, 2x on the main desktop (which I just waited until the next build came out) and 2x in VMs (one of which I abandoned and the other I just used hte .ISO I had made to upgrade).

    Wow- this build seemed perfect to me, no problems then action center popped up a new screen that froze the display, can't get rid of it!! Called up task manager, got an empty box! Went to the Hub to report, complete with screenshot, found the Submit button grayed out! The adjacent Cancel button worked like a charm. Hope MS reads this forum:)
    Did you try force rebooting the machine?

    I usually don't either, but I βeta test so much software that sometimes it's just easier to start fresh.

    Renamed C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution then tried it again. It started from scratch and went all the way through with no problem. Took almost two hours with 4 or 5 restarts but it worked. I just deleted the renamed SoftwareDistribution folder which got rid of almost 10GB.

    Now at 16170.1000.

    I created a new VM using the official download of the CU .ISO I made using the MCT (both archs) and it accepted my Windows 7 key during install and after install I have a digital license linked to my M$ account.

    Going to try with 16170 next. Let's see if it breaks like my previous attempts in the 15K builds.
