Windows 10: unable to obtain Windows 10 1511 Build 10586
unable to obtain Windows 10 1511 Build 10586
I have 5 laptops and all of them have the latest windows 10 update which is 1511 except one that has not received that update and I am wondering if there's way to get it on this laptop ?
Download the ISO from Tech Bench, double click on the ISO to mount it then double click on setup.exe
There are a couple of tutorials here:
Windows 10 ISO Download - Windows 10 Forums (follow option 1)
Windows 10 - Upgrade Installation - Windows 10 Forums (start at step 8)
While I prefer to make USB/DVDs from the ISOs so I will have them for future use lx07 posted.... the other alternative is just to click the upgrade now button:

Thanks, I didn't know about that one. I clicked on it and it created at $Windows.~GWX and $Windows.~WS directories (the second containing installx64.esd. After the "upgrade" button the next I got was the license and then a standard repair install.
It would make a few tutorials redundant if everything just works as easy as that
Been reading your posts on this link, as I didn't know about this method either till yesterday, thanks to NavyLCDR. Just to verify using this method is the same as doing a repair install, where the user does not lose their installed programs/apps correct ??
It is exactly a repair install. I just did it.
Normally I'm rather randomly generous with the "thumbs up" button but he deserved it for that. Click the link, click "upgrade now" and that is it.
If MS make everything as easy as that there will be no need for tutorials. (Don't suppose they will though )
Very NICE Hali I agree....WooHooo
just i want to clarify that the laptop I am talking about already has windows 10 installed in it, but is not getting the latest update.
Correct. All the above methods above will upgrade it to version 1511 build 10586.0 then Windows Update should do cumulative updates to get you to 10586.71 (or whatever the latest minor version is).
Will this affect my personal files and applications
