    When can I expect to receive the anniversary edition?


    I have Windows 10 Pro 64-bit, fresh installed August 8, 2015.

    When can I expect to receive the 1607 anniversary update that began rolling out a month ago?

    I know it can be manually downloaded, but that's not what I want.

    Thanks in advance

    Cheers

    Delivery is phased..
    From a quick web search you can read:
    When will your PC get the Windows 10 Anniversary Update? | ZDNet

    I know what you posted... but consider the benefits of having a bootable Win 10 medium:

    You can:
    - upgrade multiple PCs (if relevant)
    - perform an in-place upgrade repair install if needed without redownloading Win 10
    - boot from it and use the repair options should your PC become unbootable
    - perform a clean install if needed in the future

    Further, read about all the issues MS is currently addressing some are experiencing with the upgrade. You may be grateful you haven't got it yet. If you wish to try it, use disk imaging (which a wise person uses routinely anyway) to secure your current build first.

    Thank's for the link.

    Yes - I know all about the new Windows problems. I already have 2 machines which are updated with the Anniversary update.

    I create weekly a new system image, with Macrium Reflect. Just in case.

    But I do not quite understand what you mean with a bootable Win 10 medium?

    = a DVD or USB drive with an installable version of Win 10 on it from which your PC can boot.
    Use MS media creation tool or download an ISO and burn a DVD/use Rufus (freeware)

    Just as used to be the case with '98. 2000, XP, '7.

    OK - a misunderstanding on my part, I did not read it as a Media.

    I have of course bootable media created by both Macrium Reflect and Microsoft - just in case.

    Thank you for your interest and help.

    Cheers
