    There is not time limit before which you must update.
    The fact that you don't see it in Windows Update does not make sense.
    That's what I am pointing at.
    I see what you mean. I can't figure it out.

    Something you probably do not know.
    The "snapshots" you have is for the older version, probably 10240.
    You need the most current one which is 10586.
    That is why you should download the iso which contains version 10586.

    Right. My problem is I don't know what I'm doing with respect to creating an ISO. I figure if I download the new version OK, I'll update my snapshot to V10528 right away so I'll have a spare snapshot. If the download tanks for some reason, I can retreat to my v10240.

    OK. It very simple. Nothing to it.
    Use the link below and download the Media Creation Tool.
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10
    After the Tool is downloaded, run it.
    Then select Create installation media for another PC.
    That will start downloading the iso file.
    After that you can just simply let it stored in your computer, or you can burn it to a bootable media (either a DVD or an USB ). That will be for your future use when you need to reinstall 10586.

    Hey, Thanks for that.
    I did as you instructed above, and did the download. After it was done I still have the old version. It's like nothing happened. Did I do something wrong? I let it stored on my computer, but I don't think it took.

    Don't think so, what you initially download (or run) is the media creation tool which gives you the option to upgrade now or create an ISO.. Upgrading now is same as waiting for it to appear in Windows update and as I recall was quicker than the window update. I have two PCs and initially did update on one and clean install on another....my preferred method is clean install but I understand you do not want to go that route....updating now (or when you choose to run it) is equivalent to waiting for windows update except you get to choose when to do it.....someone else may have some additional info since its been a while since I last did an update/clean install....BTW current build is Version 1511 (OS Build 10586.29). Even after updating or clean install Windows update may have additional updates to get to current build of xxxxxx.29. Hope this isn't too confusing....

    Hi,

    Hey, Thanks for that. I'll do it if I don't get the update in a week.
    If you don't see it now in Windows Update I very much doubt you'll see it next week.

    Personally I'd just download the .ISO file from MS Tech Bench as it contains the install.wim file and not the .esd file which is handy in case you need to do a system file(s) repair.
    Probably due to the high compression rate of the .esd file it takes longer to work with if it works at all.
    YMMV.


    Cheers,

    twl, if you have room, you can create a new copy snapshot to try out the upgrade per routes recommended above. You could also create an empty snapshot to do a (nearly) clean install (truly clean would include deleting all partitions, which I doubt you want) of the new build but you could end up with 1 or 2 new (small) partitions that way, depending on whether your disk is set up as GPT or MBR.

    Davidhk: I followed your instructions above and installed the iso. Please excuse my ignorance but I can't remember where to look to see if the upgrade took, where it will tell me what version I'm using. Can you or someone please refresh my memory? Thanks
