Windows 10 Update keeps Failing
« on: August 04, 2016, 06:23:34 AM »
I've been attempting to update my computer with the new Windows 10 Anniversary update with no luck. It goes through all the normal steps, downloading, checking, installing then on the second reboot it comes up saying that it is reverting back to the original version. I even got online chat with MS last night and he took over my computer and used their installer which he promised would work. Well, after the 2nd reboot it did the same thing so another chat is in order to MS.
My brain is full. Can I go home now

That is strange. I am putting off my upgrade for awhile. Just tired of windows 10 snooping into everything.
You must forgive them. So many people did not slay the bogey man living under their bed as a child. Thus they feel him everywhere, hence the need to always carry a gun. Living in fear of the bogey man is a heavy burden for people to carry. So sad.

After going through 3 different MS chat techs I'm still unable to get the update. Apparently I know just as much as they do because they got no further than I did. I'll just wait for the normal updates to come through instead of trying to get the full ISO update.

I attempted to upgrade yesterday. It got about 15 minutes into the download and simply stopped downloading and went back to the Update page. I am unimpressed with Win10.

i just converted to Windows 10 from 7 2 weeks ago.  I haven't had any issues so far but I haven't tried to update it.

 I had problems updating also. Went to the local shop and got an image put on a"THUMB" drive..
The hardest part was changing the boot sequence. I did a little research and found out there was a
software program, under Toshiba called HWSetup after that everything went pretty smooth. I was using
Windows 7 before, but for the most part things are good. There were a few programs (mainly Toshiba
bloatware there were not compatible, also Media Player Video doesn't work. Just download and install
VLC (be careful where you download from as not to get Malware.

Lite on you had to bring up windows media player  not playing dvd's anymore. I'm still very peeved about that. VLC is good but it is not always catching subtitles from movies in the iso format.

I tried the D/L a second time without a problem. It downloaded and installed.
