    I typed in the command but I think nothing happened. Windows Update doesn't confirm my download.

    Would changing the date in "OSUpgradeStateTimeStamp" on the registry give you permission?

    Let it download, then the installation will begin immediately thereafter. Hopefully all works out, as the upgrade is being pushed to you ! Good Luck !
    I downloaded thru the above method I.e directly thru windows update. It downloaded and installed it. However the installation of windows 10 did not start. Please help me out

    In my case, it happened due to inconsistent download and was able to get rid of this issue after I removed all contents from
    C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download folder. Once done, opened command prompt as administrator and run following command:

    wuaucllt.exe /updatenow

    This initiated the update and successfully completed W10 installation.

    Few things to note: Make sure to set the update settings as Automatically download and install the updates before hitting the command. Also, keep the Windows Update page open while you are set to hit the command.
    This worked for me, I had updates set to not download automatically. Once I changed it, W10 showed up in Windows Updates and is now downloading. Thanks!

    Microsoft have actually patched this I believe. I've got the retail ISO.

    Ask your IT buddies, I have one who works at a college Windows 10 is available to download as he can get it through dreamspark.

    Or you child who maybe at school/college. It varies for many people.

    But once you have retail ISO you can literally force ANY computer to get Windows 10win10.jpg

    I had some failed upgrade attempts showing in my windowsupdate.log with the 80240020 error, but the registry edit worked and I'm up and running on 10 now. Some people are saying the error is due to a corrupted download but I don't think that's the case. There's still tons of thrashing going on in the background, not really sure what it's doing. Edge seems a little goofy, not sure what all the microsoftedgecp.exe are for. I get some stupidly large ads on WPCentral for some reason, they weren't there before.

    I've tried all of the suggestions here and nothing happens. I don't get a notification through windows update and the media creation tool just closes out when it gets to 100%.
    Please help me as this is getting really frustrating.
    I am on a fresh Windows 8.1 install and I have nothing left to update through windows update.

    Find another PC to download ISO via media tools. Save in USB (not as ISO file) and run in your targeted PC

    Not even this worked for me, and I tried it on two PCs, one W7 and one W8.1. The only thing that worked was the registry edit method.

    Did you try the registry edit method?

    So, it's apparent that a reliable fix doesn't exist. Editing the registry is a far far cry from what Microsoft claimed the average user would have to do to get the upgrade, which was "Do nothing. You're all set". My two computers running Windows seven check for an update and fail once a day with error code 80240020. I guess I'll end up canceling the upgrade. I doubt that's what Microsoft had in mind.

    It took me several attempts to install on my Stream 13". I think it would have worked without a hitch if I just waited to be notified, like the windows 10 upgrade app said. But I don't like to wait for things and tried the registry method, command force, and media tool. Eventually, I wiped the Stream to factory restore, then used the media tool to create a USB stick. Then used the stick to upgrade, but given the small hard drive, I had to plug in an external source to make sure that there was enough room for a backup. <-Which is weird, because disc utility still says that there is an 8 gig recovery partition on the ssd still, which I WISH I could finally remove. Alas, Windows 10 on my Stream.

    I tried the net stop wuauserv, next command, and start, then after checking for updates, I seen Advanced Micro Devices, driver update 1040. When it tried to install I received "There was a problem installing the update, error code
    0x80070032" Retry is available, and I tried it, but same error appears. Anymore advice on getting it installed?

    The registry entry is only needed if you're impatient and don't feel like waiting. If you leave it alone out will happen eventually.

    The problem is that they give that error message. If you wait, you'll get W10 as planned. They just should never have put that as "Installation failed" instead of what it really is, "You will get Windows 10 when it's your turn."
