    I used the download tool and then installed from a flash drive from Windows 8.1 desktop so the license is transferred to Windows 10. So far so good.

    let us know if that successfully helps you to install w10. I would like to give it a try once you confirm. Btw, what's the link for download tool?

    Restarted it again and it finally took. Typing this in Windows 10 right now (but not Edge). Edge won't let me post a reply. Any compatibility settings on Edge?

    Can't wait to really learn Windows 10 now.

    So, you went through usual route of windows update and installed it?
    or
    did you use download tool for W10 and installed it using bootable flash drive?

    Any comments/suggestions you want to share so that I can also successfully install it?

    Thanks!

    You can also download the Windows 10 Update Tool from Microsoft themselves and not have to download the ISO to burn to DVD. You can actually upgrade straight through that.

    I tried this and it deleted my $WINDOWS.~BT folder, which was already at 6 GB.... Now I have no $WINDOWS.~BT folder and it isn't downloading anything. Great.

    Download the ISO files and run setup from within Windows.

    I installed it through the Windows Update by resuming it.

    It errored out the first time after the download. Then it errored out the second time after trying to install. Third time was the charm, and it successfully re-started in the upgrade mode. Rebooted a couple of times, and Windows 10.

    All I can say is, if you keep getting errors, is to keep trying to resume and see if it makes it further along. It worked for me in that case. Definitely not a smooth process considering all the articles I read to the contrary.

    I still have a Lenovo tablet, HP Laptop, and my home custom desktop to upgrade. I hope they go a little more smoothly than this first one.


    I showed my co-workers the "Hey Cortana", and they thought that was awesome!

    This update is pathetic.

    2.6 gigs downloaded; followed by failed installation, followed by I can't run the setup file in the Windows.~BT folder as I get an error. I'm suppose to waste another 2.6 gigs, $%#$% hell.

    the $WINDOWS.~BT reappeared.

    So i had uninstalled that Kb update and then $WINDOWS.~BT showed up again. But it's only like 5kb and it's been like ten minutes and it's the same size and it's not growing. The KB update showed up again so I re-installed it. Still no downloading going on...

    I guess the size of the folder should be close to 5.67 GB. I have the same win8.1 Pro version and the folder size of $Windows~BT folder is 5.67GB. Please wait for some more time as download is not done at one shot.. Cheers..

    I have an HP Pavilion dv6 laptop which meets all the eligibility to upgrade to Win 10 (Graphics, RAM, Processor, Win 7 Home Basic SP)
    But during the rollout of Get Windows 10 app I had to install it manually & Reserved.
    At the Check your pc section it showed "The report isn't available..".... and still showing...
    There is a folder named $WINDOWS.~BT in my C drive. But it has no installation files just few files total of 32kb...
    What is going on?

    Totally agree all MS is doing is getting its core fans upset, since those are the only people who are going to force the update.

    So I'm at a deadlock. I'm running 7 64bit with all updates. The 'get windows 10' icon disappeared this morning. When I check for updates, I am told none are available. The 'hidden' folder on my C: drive doesn't exist. Auto update is enabled. When I use the wuauclt.exe /updatenow command, nothing happens. No error messages, no popups. Nothing, nada. I know I can download the ISO manually, but I'd prefer to update since updates come with the free MS DVD player. Thoughts?

    There are problems; I know many are experiencing. Don't rush things; try again tomorrow if you become too frustrated, only best advice, hopefully the update will eventually work !

    Microsoft has promised that a child can upgrade; we can agree this is not the case; contrary to those touting to download the ISO to which some are having problems with that method as well.

    You're not alone if it's not upgrading, don't let the few who it has worked for, make you feel isolated, there are less of them and more of us !

    FYI to anybody still having issues. I did the install on two laptops and the quickest route was the manual install from the Microsoft download using there tool. No bootable usb or disk just using there media creation tool straight from the Microsoft website and it was double the speed as the force install process. I had a force install fail after a 15 min process even after deleting the files needed for the force install to work

    I can't post the link because I don't have enough posts here but "Microsoft download Windows 10" in google and its the first link

    FYI the manual install is fast, simple no extra steps. It just does its thing. A the actual downloaded file was very small. You don't actually download the iso. All the downloading is done when you run the tool. It finds your product key and is fully activated. I wished I would have done it at 1am instead of 5 hours of crap reading message boards and trying this or trying that.

    I successfully upgraded to Windows 10 and used it for a couple of hours. On my first reboot, it came up with a blue screen error (looks like a low-res jpeg for some reason) and won't go any further.


    Took over an hour to get it back up (by accident), but it's still not working correctly. I can only boot by using a Windows 10 Home x64 DVD that I very thankfully burned before that fatal reboot.

    Here's my (accidental) temporary solution I found.

    If you have access to another computer, you may be able to get back into your PC by trying my method.


    1. Boot your computer using the install DVD (or USB) media.

    2. Click next on the first screen (where you select region and language).

    3. Click "Repair"

    4. Click the 2nd option which is recover from DVD, USB, media etc.

    5. In my case, I chose my DVD drive with UEFI option (not legacy).

    6. Computer restarts and boots Windows 10


    I was able to login but unfortunately, I don't know how fix the boot problem. It will blue screen on every reboot now.


    We need help Microsoft!!!

    You guys need a little patience until Windows 10 finishes it download in the background! You should wait to get a notification for those that didn't work.
