    Build 14332 upgrade stuck 'Preparing to install updates 100%'

    I am trying to get my PC to upgrade to insider build 14332. At the moment I am on build 14316.

    I have sometimes seen build 14332 available in Settings/Update, but after trying to get this, the PC is now stuck with 'Preparing to install updates 100%' There is no $windows directory, though this may of got deleted when I cleaned up system files. There is about 6GB of free space on the SSD partition.

    What can I do to get the upgrade to run?

    I believe you are going to need more room.

    Kill the current update attempt, reboot and try it again only skip the Updates part. See if that works.

    Filling out your System Specs would be a help.

    See here: System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums

    Also, how big is the SSD?

    I am not sure that I understand 'skip the Updates part', given that what I want to do is to get the next build.

    The C: partition is 38.1 GB and the freespace is 7.06GB. This has been enough for the past year for the 32 bit version.

    I remember reading somewhere that around 10GB is needed free for the upgrade to 10. I may be remembering that wrong though, wouldn't be the first time.

    Look at this tutorial on upgrading. How far do you get? Windows 10 - Upgrade Installation - Windows 10 Forums

    Those instructions are for upgrading from say Windows 8.1 or 7. I am just trying to get a later Insider build. It is a pity they don't make the .iso or .esd files available.

    Well this morning I got a notification saying update failed, click here to learn more. I clicked but there was nothing.

    This afternoon, after a reboot, the update started downloading and working, so I now have build 14332.

    ?????? Beats me. Windows is fun as you never know what's going to happen next, sort of like an endless adventure.

    Glad you're up and running though.
