    Hello Guys, I am facing this weird issue on my lenovo z50-70, I am not able to update my win 10 home to latest anniversary update I tried from win update process and also tried to fresh install latest iso.
    when updating from Win update it gets stuck at 32% and when I tried to clean install updated iso it gets stuck at *copying files* or *installing updates*.I have tried trid two different ISO(s) but faced same thing with both of them.
    Thanks

    Edit: Why the issues in clean installation?

    Hey, if you are still fighting with that errors then try this method. It will be 101% work. You can also check the package number under update history. (optional)Then download/install:Standalone package | Cumulative Update: MS CATALOG ; works only with INTERNET EXPLORER(and latest Edge browser)After opening this site, search for the package: +For Anniversary Update(RS1 / 1607 build): Click on thislink ++For Th2(1511 build): Click on this link# If you're stuck up with it then ask it again.We are waiting for the result.

    It is understand able that I also wrote edge browser. From previous 2 builds, this site is working on other latest browsers.
    But they have to provide link to download via Internet download accelerator (FOR SLOW NET CONNECTION USERS)

    If nothing works, then IE is the only option for w7,8.1,w10(th2) users ;)

    -thank you

    I am just too annoyed now, formatted my whole hdd, tried fresh install, didn't work then I installed 8.1 then tried to update from there using official iso
    nothing worked.
    Edit : I tried searching for "anniversary update (rs1 / 1607 build), it says couldn't find anything.

    Edit2: only working win10 iso is version:10240. Currently using this version only

    Edit 3: tried downloading "kb3176929" from here https://www.catalog.update.microsoft...ch.aspx?q=1607 when sorted via size.
    It gave an error " update is not valid for your system".

    You see that "feature update to win10, version 1607" it always fail to install update so I dont know which update file to manually download from ms catalog.
    By third link in you reply , do I have to download each update for initial release in order to update to latest version?
    I havent tried that 2nd link tool as I am kinda low on data.

    Hi friend! I have no idea what you're asking! The link I gave you is the latest build for W10. That will give you the anniversary update. That's the latest build for W10. Please attach a screen shot of your update history!

    Hi Friend Thanks for your screen shots. The only thing left to try IMHO is a in-place repair upgrade. You shouldn't lose any thing and hopefully you will get the latest build and all the updates. Good luck. This procedure will take a long time, so be patient. Your PC will start several times. This is the best I can do for you. Sorry you're having such a hard time.

    FML buddy, I have tried this already :(

    Edit: you think I should order recovery media, might help my case?

    Hi What happened when you did the in-place repair? How long did it take? Did you do it as administrator. Does your media look like this. You might want to refresh your Media Creation Tool and give it another try!

    How long did you wait? It will look like it's stuck at times. Last time I did one, it took nearly 3 hours. Does your recovery media look like mine. I used a 16GB PNY flash to down load the MCT. You might give it another try. I don't remember every thing, but several times I thought it was stuck. Give it another try and hopefully it will complete. That's all I know to do! I have ran the in-place 3 or 4 times and it has always completed. Get a fresh down load of the MCT
