    You are making it sound way more complicated than it is, a week is Sunday to Saturday.

    warning   Warning
    The below is totally off topic!

    I have never understood why the people in colonies consider a week being from Sunday to Saturday, yet these two days are for them a weekend, not weekchange what it would be if week changed night between Saturday and Sunday.

    Luckily we here on the right side of the pond know a week starts on Monday and ends at weekend, on Sunday

    LOL! Reading from left to right, our calendars show Sunday as the first day of the week and Saturday as the last. Yours are different?

    Edit: Ah, just checked and see that they are.

    I still have an ISO on a disk of 215, so may give it one last hard headed try this weekend. Sure don't want to go through the download-install process again. Feel final success is <10% after so many attempts.
    If you have the ISO, it will clean install. I did it that way on 2 physical machines. Was less time and effort to reinstall my apps and settings than go thru hours of hurry-up-and-wait-and-fail!

    The WU method worked fine on all my VM's. Because, the boot process was under the VM Host (VMWare), not Windows.

    Yes. This is Windows calendar on laptop I am writing this, showing the flow of a week from Monday to weekend, Saturday and Sunday:

    It's of course more logical, too, as are many other things this side the pond: 1,000 grams is a kilo, 1,000 kilos a ton, or one meter is 100 centimeters, each centimeter 10 millimeters and so on.

    Our week is five days work, two days rest at weekend, then we start a new week. You rest a day, work five days, then rest again a day. You have weekchange. For us, Monday is by default set as first day of the week:

    UK is Monday to Sunday too. Makes sense when the Bible states and on the 7th day God rested etc. (this is just a statement, not meant to indicate anything)

    You are correct in that it was named/tagged wrongly as weekend. However so are a lot of things in this world named wrongly. A tank that heats water is called a hot water heater when indeed it heats cold water, therefore it should be cold water heater.

    So far as when a week starts, it depends on which calendar one follows. Gregorian vs the ISO 8601 calendar. I believe most of the world follows the Gregorian.

    I beg to differ on the "right side of the pond". We have not been colonies for quite some time and owe no allegiance to any monarchy nor other countries. We are a free Republic of the United States under our own constitution.

    Gregorian calendar is the base for ISO 8601. We here have Gregorian calendar and follow ISO 8601 whereas you have a modified, not ISO 8601 calendar.

    Extract from Wikipedia:

    The ISO week-numbering year starts at the first day (Monday) of week 01 and ends at the Sunday before the new ISO year (hence without overlap or gap). It consists of 52 or 53 full weeks. The first ISO week of a year may have up to three days that are actually in the Gregorian calendar year that is ending; if three, they are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Similarly, the last ISO week of a year may have up to three days that are actually in the Gregorian calendar year that is starting; if three, they are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The Thursday of each ISO week is always in the Gregorian calendar year denoted by the ISO week-numbering year.
