    I switched to one of my W8.1 pro's that is earmarked for upgrade, and did a few normal upgrades, then a box saying your W10 is ready, please restart now, and upon restarting, there is no sign of W10. The pc was not switched on long enough to download the program anyway.

    I'm not worried about having to wait for upgrades (3) as long as I get them while they're free, I've had W10 for nearly 9 months already and have used it more than all the others put together.

    My GWX icon vanished after I used the MediaCreationToolx64.exe to create a ISO, I rebooted & created a backup with Macrium Reflect Free & when I booted back into Windows 8.1 after the backup the icon was gone. Windows update shows the same thing to me. I have tried all the tips to get the icon back but it just wont appear again.

    I have the exact same problem after using the MediaCreationTool to download the ISO. Don't know how to bring the icon back. I have tried clicking the GWX.exe but no. result.

    Maybe the Get Windows 10 app is designed to detect that you've downloaded the ISO and removes itself to spare some server overload for Microsoft?

    I'm not sure..

    I just did and only get the notice on Windows Update exactly like Banzi got. The "Learn more" link in the Windows Update notice doesn't work and I still don't have the Windows 10 icon in the tasbkar.

    What gives?

    Things that I have tried:
    - I have set Windows Update on automatic, and have selected to receive recommended updates and updates for other Microsoft products, no result.
    - I have tried clicking the GWX.exe file in the system32 folder but nothing happens.
    - I checked with an elevated command prompt if all the needed updates are installed according to this link: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3081048 to get the Windows 10 icon, and all of these updates are installed on my PC.
    - I have tried to remove the Windows BT folder in C:/ that is created when I downloaded the ISO with the Media Creation Tool, still nothing.
