Anyone know if you can install from a virtually mounted ISO? (i.e. is the ISO only needed for the time before the first reboot)

I was kind of keen to install, to see if some image processing software (now unsupported) would run under win10.  However, I have an enterprise edition of W7u from which I will do a clean install on this machine - when I get around to it - as I don't think I want W10 home edition as the OS on this machine, mainly because of limitations on update scheduling.




Do you have Media Centre? Do you have sufficient HDD space on the C: for ugprade?


Yes to media centre, and yes, over 300 GB free space on a 500 GB SSD.
I guess I need to remove media centre - had to think about that, as I had to look to see if it was installed, as I never use it anyway.

Media centre removed, nothing happened (but it tried another update - with same fail message after Media Centre was removed), but this is a little odd in a back to the future kind of way.  PC clock is correct, and in correct time zone ((UTC+12:00) Auckland, Wellington.
The compatibility check app was "last run" in 4 hours time!

When I realised I was getting the same error message I did the following and Iworked a dream and on family PC's that had the same .....

"What this error means is, your Windows 10 installation folder is unfinished and/or corrupted. Now, how do you fix that?
1. Go into "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download" and delete everything in that folder.
2. Now, run the command prompt as an administrator. Type in "wuauclt.exe /updatenow".
3. Go to your Control Panel > Windows Update and your Windows 10 should start re-downloading from scratch, hopefully without flaws this time.  "

Remember to let it do its thing after this with out interrupting it.

Odd. When I change from C to F it changes from kph to mph and vice versa.
