    I see $Windows~BT folder in C:and its size is ~3.5GB. The folder size is not growing anymore. Should I expect same update size for W10 Pro since
    my PC currently runs Windows 8.1 Pro?
    How did it work out for you? I am stuck in the same position as yours, and no install activity yet.

    out of all the tricks to get it going, the one that worked on all my pcs was the regedit adding the dword "AllowOSUpgrade"

    OK, I've tried to force the upgrade by using the command prompt solution but it doesnt work. Maybe the update in Germany isn't released yet.

    So I tried the solution through the media creation website to upgrade directly. Everything seems to work until I get to the point to choose if I'd like to keep settings files etc. or just personal files, or a totally clean install.

    I just want to update right now, but this option is greyed out, apparently because I'm trying to upgrade in a different language than originally installed.

    upgrade.jpg

    I've got a Dell XPS 12 that is about 2 years old, purchased in Germany. I set Windows up to run in English (UK) when I first set it up.

    I started the upgrade through the USA, UK and Gemany media creation websites, the Upgrade starts, always in English and in all 3 cases I have received the same message.

    Does anyone think I should change the Windows Language back to German, and then try the upgrade from the German site again? This seems to be the only option left other than a clean install...

    EDIT: Switched display language to German in Windows, restarted, started the update again from the German page. At some point during the download and preparation, the application language switched to English again, and I get the same message. No idea what to do...

    Any ideas?

    There's an easier way... go to the windows 10 ISO creation page, downloaded the media creation tool and it gives you an option to install windows 10 NOW or create an ISO. Click install NOW and you are done.
    When you click the install now option does it delete any personal files ?

    1. Delete everything from C:/Windos/SoftwareDistribution/Downloads folder.

    2. Set Windows Update setting to "Automatically download and Install Updates"and go back to Check for Updates page and keep it open.

    3. Run command prompt as administrator and hit the command to automatically check for updates(See previous posts for the command).

    Once hit, you should see downloading W10 in updates. It should be downloaded and installed w/o any issues.

    80240020 IS NORMAL. 80240020 DOES NOT mean the download is corrupt.

    In fact, the download was successful and the computer has not yet received permission from Microsoft to proceed with the install.

    Without permission, 80240020 will continue to appear.
    80240020 will occur perhaps daily until Microsoft sends the computer permission to install.

    Permission will come in days or even weeks.

    Permission is granted to extremely large groups of computers in waves.
    This limiting technique ensures that servers and support persons are not overwhelmed with millions of installs occuring at one time.

    This also enables a few computers to have their installation postponed until certain 3rd party drivers are available by those vendors. Eventually, all computers will get the permission flag set.
    This flag is in the registry. It can be set manually but it is not advised to edit the registry.

    Be patient. I am only guessing that most computers will receive permission to proceed within one week.

    Did you have any problems with the update after you downloaded it? I'm just curious because I don't want to download it and then have an issue with my activation key. Thank you in advance

    Windows10 upgrade happened on July 31 for Microsoft to push the upgrade. All went well from Windows 8.1 to 10; the login to Windows10 I swore it was logging into Windows 8.1 at times !

    So I have tried all of the above and for the life of me, I cannot get my system to show the Windows 10 upgrade at all.

    I look into my update history and it shows Windows 10 Pro upgrade in there but shows a Failure as a result every time.

    I had that same problem. The issue is that Microsoft is staggering the rollout, but is giving very limited information to users about this. As mentioned earlier in the thread, the registry edit mentioned in this link fixed it for me, and for many others that had the error message as well:

    It gives you options. You can keep them or delete them.

    Really the entire thread. I was trying to let folks know that the media creation tool lets the do an immediate upgrade. It bypasses as of this forcing the update stuff that people are trying. Sorry if I posted I wrong spot.

    Mine has grown to about 8 GB (~6 GB on disk). I cannot update it manually when pressing setup, so I guess I will have to wait too. Updating also does nothing for now.

    Update: Apparently, there was an error with upgrading to Windows 10 Pro (my laptop is currently running Win 8.1 Pro). The highlighted links take me to Insider page, so maybe my laptop is not "marked" as non-Insider yet, or something...

    For ppl who want to upgrade it's highly recomended to use official media creation from microsoft and let it do the upgrade. Much more faster rather than using automatic method

    Let it download, then the installation will begin immediately thereafter. Hopefully all works out, as the upgrade is being pushed to you ! Good Luck !

    Don't force and check Windows Update everyday; one of those days the update will be ready to download; have patience, if you end up waiting a week !
