    To check whether your download is coming, look for a folder called:
    $WINDOWS.~BT
    In the root of your C:\

    If its not there, check there are folders dated with todays date, here:
    C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download
    Files start here, before being unpacked into the location above.

    If those folders don't exist, type this at the command line:
    wuauclt.exe /updatenow
    (This worked for me, and my download has started)

    Hope that helps. If you have to hit Windows Update with a hammer, try this:
    1.Uninstalled the KB2976978
    (In an elevated cmd prompt)
    1.net stop wuauserv
    2.rd /s /q C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution
    3.net start wuauserv

    I have the $Windows~BT folder downloaded on both my test PC and my Surface Pro. So, I should be able to upgrade anytime after midnight.

    It is interesting that the Insider PC's are getting an update - I do t know if it is a updated from 10240 or if it is simply a final test of the upgrade - though that seems odd to me.

    I will kick off the Test Nachine tonight and wait for the weekend to upgrade the Surface. I need to be around to address any spousal usability issues.

    Does this work only with Insiders? Because I'm not.

    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?

    So here is the story. After finding out how much data I have on my hard drive, I decide to run disk clean up to see if I can free up some space as I need to run a back-up for my files. I opened disk clean up and chose to clean system files. And now the Windows 10 folder is gone. Is there anyway that I can get it back or force Windows 10 install, please help

    My w10 folder is 4.2GB... Tried to start it by using the setup.exe file. But that just gave an error. Guess I'll just have to wait until someone decides it's time to install it on my PC?

    I'm trying to work out how to force this update. The update keeps failing, and I'm unsure why. It looks like it's timer based? No idea if this is an erroneous lead.

    wuauclt.exe /updatenow helped me to start update on my PC.
    But nothing from this thread helps me to start it on my laptop. I don't even have $Windows~BT folder. Any thoughts what I can try, guys?

    When I did the wuauclt.exe /updatenow, it said downloading Windows 10 in Windows Update then it wanted to instal Windows 10 Insider Preview.

    I have tried every thing to get my PC to reserve a copy but it won't. I used keyfinderthing to get my Windows 8.1 key but it is different then what's on my Email when I bought Windows 8. Did my key change when I updated to 8.1?

    Thanks

    You guys should just show some patience and stop trying to force it. All you're doing is re-downloading files you already have, and will likely still have to wait at the last bit until Microsoft ok's it.

    I have the window-BT folder. Looks like a regular install directory. I attempted to run the setup.exe and got an error. Guess Ill try changing my time to 12:01am. Also, I can see in the setup properties details that this is build 10.0.10240.16384

    Has anyone gotten theirs to install yet? I have the BT folder on my computer (about 4.5 GB), but after 12 AM, I have not gotten a prompt to install Windows 10.

    The biggest thing to remember is that Microsoft said Windows 10 is rolling out in waves - it's not a 12AM unlock where everyone gets it all at once. It's going to take days (even weeks) before everyone is offered the install. Just be patient.

    If your tracking the download files the upgrade is being downloaded with bits and you can watch that in the event viewer.

    everybody will have a difference size update most the time because microsoft already tried starting the file download process on your system drive.. if you try the command line in the run box -- wuauclt.exe /updatenow then you have to make sure youve installed all the windows updates before it will show up .
