    Next Issue after Something Happened!

    In a previous thread I had become stuck with a Something Happened error during a 64 Bit Media Creation Tool effort to produce an ISO to burn to DVD for future use. I had tried the wuauclt.exe fix with no apparent difference.
    While waiting I did that fix again and the Windows Update window popped open and asked if I wanted to download the update and I believe I pressed okay and it began downloading Windows 10. Now it finished downloading and is apparently forcing a choice of instant installation or a 3 day delay before installing....
    I checked in Windows update which says that I should restart and the last thing on the updated history list was todays earlier failed attempt to install Windows 10 Pro.
    I am in need of advice on how to proceed to NOT install Windows 10, yet find and hopefully burn an ISO to a DVD!
    Thanks for any assistance!!!!!

    Hello from a seemingly desperate situation. I can delay the install for 3 days at the most according to the Windows upgrade program. Update shows that if I restart the computer which it is insisting I must do, will allow it to finish the install. I am confused by the apparent ambiguity of the Windows message and the update center message.

    Upon further research in the tutorials, I am now convinced that I instructed myself into an upgrade albeit, unintentionally. I am still hoping that there is a way that I might correctly stop the process with someones help. Maybe not....
