    *twiddles thumbs* How do I force Win10 to update?

    Took machine back to Win8.0.

    Used media create tool to go straight back to Win10. Dumped me onto Build 1511.

    Verified MS Account, Trusted This PC and set Insider Builds to Fast Ring.

    Restarted. Still at here on 1511. Tells me my machine is 'up to date'.

    Hello, :)

    Keep checking off and on. Sometimes it can take up to 24 hours to become available.

    It's soo infuriating though.
    Why won't it just come through?
    Nowhere I can go online to grab the latest version iso or something?

    The lastest Insider ISO available from Microsoft below is build 14332 instead of the latest 14342.

    If you have HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost\Applicability\RecoveredFrom key in your registry and the build listed in there that your waiting for you will never get the build until there is a new one out. Windows 10 will ignore it due to you recovering from it. You can delete the RecoveredFrom key safely and should get the new build after a reboot and a few minutes wait. RMMV. (goes for anyone that rolled back from a build)
