    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.
    I tried that on two PCs with entirely different configurations and both got the "Something happened" error.
    So far I haven't been able to install anything.

    Thanks for the help her its was very helpful! I just wanted to share that I wasnt able to get this update to install under my normal account which has administrative privileges. So I logged in with the local administrator account on my system and kicked off the following command wuauclt.exe /updatenow and it started the download.

    If those folders don't exist, type this at the command line:
    wuauclt.exe /updatenow
    (This worked for me, and my download has started)
    This worked on a Windows 7 laptop I have. It did not work in Windows 8.1 Pro installed on a Mac using Boot Camp, though -- just an FYI to any other Boot Camp users.

    Anyone using Boot Camp have better luck?

    ​Thank you.

    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.
    He is correct, this method worked perfect for me on my desktop and the wife's laptop. Easy peasy, no problems.

    I just downloaded the ISO file(from MSDN) and used that to do an in-place upgrade on my SP3. Worked great!!! I imagine you can do the same thing with the public ISO if you dont want to wait.

    Any links to a public ISO? The Media Creation Tool just exits without creating the ISO when I try it, so I need an actual direct ISO file download.

    If you run a multi-monitor setup I'd be extremely cautious ! Search Forbes.com for more info as to why !

    Look in Update history. It might already have tried to install it and failed. That's how it was on my laptop at least.

    Third attempt Windows 10 installation and fail; I wonder how much data I've wasted. This is bullcrap; truly is. I contact Microsoft support and there is only one answer I can give everyone who has failed installation; you have to wait a week, there are too many inconsistencies.

    Josh, did it appear that it installed as an upgrade or as a fresh install when you followed this method? It's funny because I posted this method to several boards, but haven't tried it myself. My fear is that it will install as a fresh install and not an upgrade, which I sincerely want to avoid.

    So I did the update tool and just upgraded instead of doing it through USB. Everything installed fine, but when going through settings it wouldn't let me activate the copy and it wouldn't let me download apps from the store. I tried the commands above^ and it activated, but I'm not sure if that's a genuine license. It still didn't let me download apps. I ended up just reverting back to 8.1. Weird thing is that I had asked for a fresh install but when I reverted back to 8.1 all ofmy stuff was still there.

    Now I'm backon 8.1 and still no update, still now downloading, nothing. I think trying to force it ****ed up my chances of getting the update because before I did anything the folder was already over 6 GB...
