    Can't install Win 10 1511 10586 update


    Hi,

    I have been trying to install this update for quite some time now, and actually even waited two weeks to see if this problem wasn't going to resolve itself, but apparently, i'm out of luck. It seems that this update fails to install every time i try to restart. I have tried re-downloading the update by deleting the files that were downloaded, but that didn't work, so i think we can rule out file corruption.

    What i don't understand is, it doesn't even try to install the update. When it restarts, it doesn't say "Windows is installing updates, please don't turn off your computer." It just reboots normally, and when it boots up again, i get a notification saying that Windows has failed to install updates.

    I've tried running a sfc/scannow and DISM check, but also no luck. Any suggestions on how to install this? Maybe there is a way to download this update manually, and install it through an ISO? Would appreciate any help.

    Thanks,
    Alex

    Won't this download the entire windows 10 iso instead of just the update?

    It worked, for some reason. I think it was DISM. BUT OH MY GOD. ITS AN ACTUAL UPGRADE. How do they just do that. All my settings, everything ruined. I thought it was a simple update. WHYYYY

    I am very sorry.
    I thought you knew that it was an upgrade.
    However, upgrade does NOT ruin your settings, files and apps. Upgrade is supposed to keep them as is.

    It's not your fault :) Microsoft should have made it look more like an upgrade than an update.

    This worked for me. All my Apps and Settings appear to be unaffected. I did have to reset my desktop wallpaper, but other than that I've not seen anything out of place.
