    It's started - what I said above I mean.

    Having noted the $Windows.~BT folder, I went to updates, and downloaded and began installing them.

    Although there were 2 more updates remaining to get, a restart was required, so I let it restart, which began a round of configuration, restart, further reconfiguration, restart then there was some error reported and everything began to roll back.

    After that, another restart, then back to boot menu.

    System unable to start. F8 duly pressed, and repair attempted.

    Not possible, so a reset was attempted.

    Not possible, so I' have to attempt a clean install of the old 10240, and continue from there I guess.

    $Windows.~BT just contains \sources\Panther\SysResetTrace-Tel-Merge.etl - which is a binary file, I think.

    I have attached $SysReset\Logs\SetupAct_offline.log (as a zip file), in case anyone is interested.

    Now to copy the downloads I found useful for 10240 and reinstall.

    Oh, The Joy, a clean install of 10240 - it will activate OK!

    Won't it?
    Not til midnight, Redmond WA time, during 28th - 29th of this month. I suspect activation servers will be turned on at that time. You should be about +8 hours away from their time. I know that I'll be able to install and activate tomorrow morning 9 AM.

    You weren't supposed to do that; you should have waited for it to tell you when.

    It needed a clean install - it took about 4 minutes to get from boot to start. Anyway I'm up and running again, this time with a local account to name my user files, and converted the sign in to my MS account by PIN, which wasn't working since 10130.

    It's picked up all the personalisation to my Waves theme, changed the activation message from you need to activate to "connect to the internet to activate windows". When it gets the next set of updates, the activation will go through like it did before, probably sometime tomorrow. There were the usual driver problems with Realtek HD sound, Intel chipset and HPMonitor, but I have all these saved anyway. Nvidia is OK, and picked up my native resolution, so altogether I am pleased with the last 3 hours work.
