Windows 10 update.

Post by sirch345 » Sun Aug 07, 2016 3:28 pm

Has anyone updated to W10 Anniversary update yet :?:
It was released on 2nd Aug '16. It's a big one, 3GB and it over writes the present version apparently.

Did it go smoothly if you have :?:

I must admit I'm not over impressed with the compulsory updates in W10,

Doesn't seem much difference really. No issues upgrading.

Cheers, that's good to know :)

Did you get the update through windows updates or get it yourself :?:

I got it through windows update.

It shows up on my home pc but not my work Dell laptop. Apparently it could take a couple of weeks to roll out across all manufacturers.

That was what I read, they're not going to roll it out to everybody all at once just in case there are any problems they need to rectify along the way.

I'm in no hurry for it, I'll have it when I get it via windows updates as you have on your home pc.

I see some have had problems with their system freezing when trying to install this update,

That'll be due to you using Microsoft's Edge browser I'm guessing :?:

Can't use it on my Samsung i5 laptop, sadly it's not compatible with the display.
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.

When I upgraded it worked fine for a week, but tonight, when I boot up it goes to the Welcome screen, I put in my password, then it hangs.

I ended up having to roll back the update to get into Windows. Not sure if it was the update that was causing the issue or something else.

Interesting. I've still not been offered the Anniversary update yet, but I'm guessing I will soon.

Please do lets us know if you get anymore issues when W10 automatically updates again,

I've had the anniversary and bcause of problems that i know nothing about i had to install it via a media tool or something. I had another one last week, and because of the time and problems of the anniversary I kept ignoring it until it just decided to do it and I couldn't re-schedule so had to let it do its thing. It got to 91% - a pretty common level it seems - after 22 hours and no further - so I pulled the plug (as I've had to do before). It restored to previous version but in the updater it now reckons i am up to date and no updates needed. Odd? Wonder what that last 9% was for. It bugs me that updates are not a straightforward process.

Win10 is horrid, really difficult to do any proper work on. I have it on a couple of machines because I have to support it but my main pc is win8.2 and the other two are win7. Not counting the servers.... I have a big electricity bill but my office is always nice and warm.

Apologies for not updating this sooner.
I had a back-up copy of my O/S (operating system) Windows 10 on an old hard drive. Fed up with not knowing when the Anniversary W10 update was going to be offered to me through Windows Updates, I decided to take the plunge and try it out on the old hard drive manually. I like you used the Media Creation Tool, iirc it took around 3-1/2hrs in total, but that will vary according to internet speeds I imagine.
I'm pleased to report all went well with the update, I was quite surprised. I'm sorry you didn't have such luck.
