    Same error here, I tried everything I was able to find.

    Switching to local account, restarting, going back to MSA, restarting.. and nothing.
    Also tried the fix with the store, nothing... I ran out of ideas and google finds.

    I dont wanna go back to the last ISO I have and do a clean install.

    I'm success with W10 TH1 Enterprise 10240 build & activated, holy cow!

    If can't login ms account to fix upgrade & stuck with pin try install some apps
    & login it worked with me since 10162's bug.
    Everytime before upgrade make sure clean $Windows.~BT properly.
    Every new build cames it's always overwrite $Windows.~BT folder in C:

    I think I saw that MS has stopped the insider rings in relation to the official w10 becoming available. Have you tried updating without insider? Don't know if it would actually work or not...

    I don't know how to get out of insider though. I click stop insider and does nothing.

    Check for updates and keep getting notifications that insider needs attention but does nothing but link to a useless webpage.

    I'm in the same boat. I went to accounts and found I wasn't logged into my MS account. I logged in, got rid of the error, but still don't have any build updates.

    I was able to update to 10240 on my desktop last night, but it's not finding the update on my SP3. I wonder if their servers are getting hammered maybe?

    But what's up with this silly notification that insider needs attention? Doesn't make any sense

    I clicked on that, and nothing happened. My Surface is now running 240. It is pretty good, but I think there will still be further updates before Windows 10 goes live. Maybe it is just driver and App issues, but it still doesn't seem as snappy as Windows 8 did.

    o installed the ISO for build 10240 but unable to activate my device, and dont know where to get my licence key. Is it a good idea to go back to be a previous build and then upgrade again?

    I've read that those iso versions floating around might not activate or screw up any further activation from your previous builds. Looks like Microsoft has screwed us over folks. They got what the needed from us and now don't care

    I had 166 running live on my SP3 and 159 as VM on Desktop. SP3 Received the 10240 update. I haven't checked if the VM was updated, I haven't been using it lately.

    My virtual box is 32 bit, of course it updated to 240, I can make ISO, no 64bit 166 build to use now :(

    Found a site someone uploaded Usa 64bit 166 build
    Would not register in virtual box. I am trying to upgrade windows 8.1 on desktop now to this build, then upgrade on

    I only downloaded the 32 bit iso, upgrading was only doing 32 bit.

    So I just went and downloaded the ISO online and did a fresh install. All is sorted now. Really liking windows 10, but don't think its enough for me to move from windows 7. Its a lot faster to load compared to windows 8.1.

    Also having trouble getting a PC to accept Build 240, It is at Build 162 now this box is just for test of Win10 so I elected to have it over write WIn 7 SP1 took forever to do this but finally got done.

    Same with the upgrade from 162 to 240 churned for about a day and half only to fail. now it is trying to go through this again. Just how will Microsoft handle phone calls if the upgrade takes 1 to 2 days ??? The public will be ready to hang someone!!!!!!!
