    It's a good thing I don't work tomorrow. I'm in CDT, so I could be up a while waiting for the download, but, 79 cent XL fountain drinks at Circle K is a very short drive away.

    Get some sleep! Maybe when you wake up they will all be upgraded!
    You can guarantee that within 10 mins of me going to bed, they'll all pop up with "Windows 10 is ready to install. Do you wish to continue?" Haha

    I've probably spent quite a lot of time in it in total. I know my way around OS X just as well as any other OS, learning an OS has always come natural to me. There are parts of OS X I like, like the built in DVD player and Disk Utility is one of the best built-in disk management tools I've ever used. I just can't get myself to really.. like the OS though. Windows and Ubuntu are my two favorite operating systems.
    Right on, they all do have their annoyances but finding what works best for you is what it is all about. I'm always ready to try something new and jump ship if it works better as my main work space, really itching to give this update a run.

    This one's the largest I made and have an Xbox logo one but, didn't think anyone would care for too much (grunge) style thrown at them.

    Here's how I got things to start, courtesy of jordguitar from Facepunch:

    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

    Yep... On all 4 of my PCs. On a side note, my Windows Defender has never been so up to date as it is now! Haha 😆

    I'm starting to wonder if this is a bit of a disaster. I've had so many people come to me complaining about seeing the Windows 10 Upgrade has failed in Windows Update.

    I'm waiting to see if it's simply a case of having to wait, but if so many PC's are failing the upgrade, it's going to be a disaster for Microsoft.

    It's been a long enough day that I think it would be hilarious if, on upgrade, Windows 10 booted up with the Windows 3.1 start screen.

    3.1 was an ok OS. Now, if it gave you a Vista screen....

    I can't believe that all 4 of my PCs have corrupt/incomplete downloads... Especially as they're all coming from different versions of Windows... 7 Home Premium, 7 Pro, 8.1 with Bing & 8.1 Pro... There must be something else at play here surely?

    Exactly. If someone else in your country / region has successfully upgraded (I'm not sure I've seen a real successful upgrade without doing the questionable CMD trick, though) and 4 of your PC's have not then that gives you some idea of the failure rate.

    If so many are failing like this then it's a major PR disaster for Microsoft come tomorrow.

    For those of us on build 10240 is there going to be anything new that comes with the official version of 10? If there are any enhancements I sure hope they fixed those that affected Edge's performance. Other than that I think this is going to be awesome! Can't wait to get the official version. I've been through too much pain on the earlier builds on my main PC haha.

    Yeah, I see a few of those in my Windows Update history as well. However, given that it's currently still the 28th of July where I am I'm not ready to think anything of it.

    Perhaps it periodically queries MS servers for permission to install or for a license key or similar.
