    Forget screwing around with Windows Update. If you are a windows insider just go the windows insider page, login, and then download. Click on the media creation tool -- it's really the actual download. It will then create the BT Folder (or overwrite your existing one) and then automatically do the update.

    Remember to the UPDATE and not clean install. MIcrosoft said to update and then go back and create installation media and do the clean install.

    Good luck and Good night!!! I live in Colorado, so I was able to download the files before midnight my time.

    And installed in Seattle on my sp3 ... the 'sit back and relax' bit was actually quite fast .. not long enough for me to panic too much. Now we'll see how the getting all set up part goes. This could take a while. /neurotic

    update: sweeet! it kept way more of my settings than I'd dared hoped for. and so far applications all running okay. /phew /knockonwood
    had only been doing preview on an old old laptop so I had no idea. yay :D

    After you click on the media installation tool somewhere in the process it will ask you if you want to update or create media or something like that. Choose UPDATE.

    Done.

    mjyumping You need to do do an update first so your license on the machine will upgrade. After that, you can boot from the install media, format your system disk, and do a clean install where everything is new and nothing remains from your previous OS.

    Ok, I must be having a major brain fart because it's late. I am on the insider preview. If I remove myself from insider builds, my activation will eventually become non-genuine, correct? Right now it says it is activated.

    Like I already posted, these steps got Windows 10 to start properly installing for me:

    What this error means is, your Windows 10 installation folder is unfinished and/or corrupted. Now, how do you fix that?
    1. Go into "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download" and delete everything in that folder.
    2. Now, run the command prompt as an administrator. Type in "wuauclt.exe /updatenow".
    3. Go to your Control Panel > Windows Update and your Windows 10 should start re-downloading from scratch, hopefully without flaws this time
    Vouching, this 100% works, well it did for me!

    Edit: but it does re-download everything, I had a 6.5GB folder that it is replacing and is taking its sweet time on my gigabit connection.
