    win10

    Trying to run large win 10 updates at a specific time?


    Does anyone have a suggestion on how to advance win10 updates?

    Background is that the upgrade from 7 to 10 failed at 40% and reverted to 7. I removed AVG and also adobe flash as we had had an issue with it prior to the upgrade. To save time, and download limits, we ran the upgrade to 10 from a disk with version 240 successfully. I am trying to advance the upgrade to the latest version of 10 during my free download quota window over the w/e or between midnight and 8am.

    Microsoft has failed to appreciate these large updates (even with the metered option) are large and inconvenient. As a matter of priority Microsoft needs to give control back to the user; at present its not doing anyone any favours.

    Hi, first the current major build (since last Nov) is 10586.

    Second, you may prefer to download the appropriate iso once and use that for all your PCs you are upgrading (or twice if you need both 32 bit and 64 bit O/S's)

    As this can be a manual download, you can do it when convenient.

    This is also useful if written as a bootable medium
    a. to boot an unbootable PC for certain repair operations
    b. for an in-place upgrade repair install for PCs requiring it but can boot to normal mode.

    One download then rules all for upgrade and certain repair procedures.

    Further: some people experience- as you have- that an upgrade may fail and need to be redone. If you have the iso or bootable medium to hand, you save the download time and ?cost.

    I would recommend upgrading using the iso without opting for updates.
    Why? If there is a big problem with Win 10, e.g. compatibility, drivers... you then haven't wasting the download time.
