    I have the Lumia 530 running Windows Phone 8.1. I wanted to give Windows 10 Mobile a whirl, but the Windows Insider app says there are "no builds".

    My OS build is 8.10.12400.899 and I installed a 32GB microSD card so space and OS should not be an issue.
    I have already soft reset and used the Windows Device Recovery Tool, but nothing works. And yes, I am an Insider (beta tested Windows 10 for PCs since the beginning).

    Any solutions?

    You can also try to sign off and sign in on the web and/or enroll on and off on the app.

    I've tried signing in and signing out. Does not work. Both on phone and PC.

    After clicking Get Preview Builds, it keeps on displaying "no builds" and "we weren't able to find a preview build for you, please confirm..."

    Just noticed, it says I have Lumia Cyan. Don't we need Denim for this and if so, will downloading Preview for Developers cause Denim to download?

    Maybe that's the problem, you can manually flash a country variant Denim ROM and then try.

    I don't know how to flash a phone. Any guides?
    Also, how much space am I supposed to have available on my internal storage for the W10M download?

    If you're interested in a guide I think in XDA developers and other websites are some of them, it's easy. It's basically downloading the desired ROM with Navifirm, placing it in a specific directory and flash the phone with Nokia Care Suite.
    If you need extra help I'm here.
    You should have a little more than 1GB to install the update but I don't know if that's possible with the 530 right now, can anyone confirm it?

    I've tried changing the date and time, it does not work.
    Also found the XDA Developers guide, the servers are unavailable at this time.

    That's true, I downloaded a Spanish country variant ROM some time ago to flash the 530 of my brother but I don't remember if I deleted it... If I still have it I will upload it for you.

    Since your phone has internal memory of 4GB . that may be the reason. I think so........btw how much internal memory left in your phone ?

    Maybe Microsoft retired the 530 from the insider program due to 4GB of internal memory.

    I think that's enough but I don't really know why the update doesn't appear to you.

    The official Windows Insider page says "8.10.14219.341 or earlier".
    Anyone out there with a Lumia 530 that can provide a bit more information about how they upgraded? I don't know why this phone isn't updating.

    That makes no sense. Why would they put. "8.10.14219.341 or earlier on that page. Why don't put a older build up there. And say this and higher I really think it's 8.10.14219.341. And besides I thought the 530 wasn't getting an update because it's has only 4 GB. But a friend of mine did had an older version of windows 10 on his 530. Don't know if it still in the program

    They also claim that the 530 is on the list of supported devices. Anyway, I found a case saying getting some updates from Developer Preview then solved the Insider problem for the 521. I'm going to try it and see.

    The 530 situation is very unclear right now, there's a possibility it would not get the update but at the same time heard and saw a screenshot of an SD card update process as a workaround to the lack of internal memory during installation...
