    Upgrade install is at 71% on my Surface Pro 3.

    I prepared it for the upgrade from 8.1 last night (unjoined from Domain, installed all Windows and firmware updates), the GWX tool confirmed that my upgrade was reserved.

    This morning, checked for Windows updates and got the Upgrade to 10 prompt. Download was 2.6GB.

    I am using the Media Creation tool to download ISO's because I have some domain joined PC's to upgrade along with quite a few stand alone systems. So far it's not going well. It gets to the end of the download/verify process and then I get an ever so helpful message "Sorry, Something Happened" That's it, nothing else. I wonder if a Vulcan mind meld will give some insight to what that 'something' is.

    Tried to do a clean install with the USB stick I created with the MS Tool, but it won't accept my product key. I purchased Windows 8.1 last year. I have to wait until MS tech support office opens in an hour to figure out what the problem is.

    Edit: Never mind, I see I have to reinstall Windows 8.1 and then upgrade and then do a clean install. Thanks Microsoft. /s
    I have this issue as well. Is it really so that there is no other way but upgrade and then do clean install??

    Had this on two installed (2PCs), my network adaptors in device manager weren't recognizes so no internet connection, ended up manually updating drivers to sort out then all was good.

    The Upgrade is now over, after the normal way didn't worked out, since I got everytime the "failed" thing. In one of the News was this Media Creation Tool or whatever and that worked so far, and I did an Upgrade, not a clean install. But now I have problems with activating Windows, the thing says I have to connect to the internet in order to activate Windows, but I'm connected to the Internet~ I hope, that this is just an error on MS-Server side, that will be resolved~

    My update on my tablet hasn't started yet but I did a restart a little bit ago and my GWX reservation icon on the task bar was gone when I logged back in. It still shows up as an application in system search but in task manager the process is no longer running. Windows Update is still telling me that my upgrade is reserved and they'll notify me. Anyone else notice this during their pre-upgrade excursions?

    Well, I downloaded the ISO through media creation tool, and then made a bootable USB using the Microsoft DVD/USB Tool. Installing now, but it is going super slow, been stuck at 11-15% since around two hours. I guess it must be downloading the patch, which I assume is around 350MB for x64.

    Noticed this last night on my Precision workstation that is using an Nvidia Quadro FX1800 (not sure why it shows another model). Does anyone know what to do with video cards that aren't supported? Will Windows 10 install even without the video card not working? I've seen some sites saying to load Windows 8 or 7 driver after install. Any help would be great! Thanks. precision-issue.png

    My 'BT' folder has reached 7.5 GB, I have installed all the latest 8.1 updates and I got this notification which was a little different than the preivous one. Attachment 109507 Hopefully I will be able to install soon!
    Me too. But I could not wait. Finally I downloaded MediaCreationToolx64.exe and choose "Upgrade this PC now". Spent about one hour on installing. Very smooth installation. No product key is required. Yeah.

    Microsoft made it painfully clear that you HAD to use the upgrade feature from Windows 7/8 first BEFORE you can do a clean install on the same device. You can't use a Windows 7/8 key to activate Windows 10..

    Well... I had the little windows icon last night on the taskbar and now I don't have it. I refreshed windows update and nothing... This is on an asus t200.
    I never even got the little windows icon on my macbook pro and I'm trying to update my aunt's acer switch tablet and the little icon never popped up on there too.....

    I got the same thing, but I searched a bit and found this:
    Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool - Windows Help

    Download and run the tool and you can upgrade through that.

    Never mind. I followed the instructions for the manual install that are in the article on the main page's header. My HP Stream 7 tablet is now downloading the upgrade.

    Starting to get really fed up with this. First I get the message "We're validating your PC" which according to Paul Thurrott means something is incompatiable at the moment. So I thought I would download the ISO but the media creator will not open and tells me to restart me PC which I do and get same error.

    Same experience with me. I just waited at around 2AM Pacific Time (5PM local time). Clicked the W10 app and it upgraded the system for me.

    Success on a Dell XPS tower. I was able to run the install remotely using my laptop at work, connecting and installing on my home computer. Let the fun begin.

    Have "$Windows.~BT" folder in C:\ but no pop-up window for proceeding to upgrade.

    I assume all necessary files have been downloaded already. I wonder why we still need to wait.

    I opened GWX and it updated the system automatically. I did it around 2AM Pacific Time (5PM local time)
