Is there a way to get updates to install at shutdown instead of Windows deciding for you when it will reboot? I know you can postpone updates to another time, why not postpone until I decide it's time to shut down?

Question: Can I download the 10 iso and mount the iso and upgrade from within windows 8.1 -> 10 without using a USB?

Reason: I want to upgrade without the thing automatically updating all my stuff as there is ONE thing I want to not be updated. I discovered that when upgrading from an ISO in insider preview there is an option to not download updates (can't remember if the media creator tool had that option)




Involuntary autocorrect in operation on mobile device. Apologies in advance.

suspect that a mounted ISO won't work as it could lose the mount over a reboot.

I did both my computers by mounting the ISO then running setup. There was no problem on the reboots, and there were a few.
Just remember to check that the ISO has un-mounted when everything is finished. I also chose not to download updates.




Life is too short to remove USB safely.

Question...  Has anyone installed the intel nvme driver for the ssd 750 (1.2.0.1002), I tried it on one of the insider previews, after installing it the machine would hang on boot.
A bit apprehensive to try it with my nice fresh install.

Is encourage you to download the updates

Setup is now dynamic and will download updates and fixes in advance

Yet another reason why in place upgrade now works so well compared to previous updates.

I tried to update my sister laptop yesterday and it requested a product key when running setup.exe from within windows.

 

It does the check for updates then requests a prodct key...

 

She has Windows 7 Home Premium "System" shows Windows is activated.

 

 

I was using the same USB I've upgraded three pc's with

My laptop now has no sound. I wonder if deleting grove music has anything to do with it.

I think I know what's going on with Outlook not correctly opening anchor tags - such as http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=48&topicid=144215&page_no=7#1358323 

In Outlook if you click that link it will open the default browser without the #1358323 bit. If you copy the hyperlink in Outlook, do Window Key + R and enter the URL it will also not correctly pass the #1358323.

I tested this on Windows 7 and Windows 2012 and in both cases if you do Windows Key + R and paste the URL these OS will correctly pass the #1358323 anchor and open the page at the appropriate location.

It seems Windows 10 managed to break hyperlinks...

You need to make sure you are Upgrading Home to Home and Pro to Pro.

You may have been using Pro installation media to upgrade the home version?

For some reason I can't get weather to display on the lock screen. I have changed the appropriate setting and the weather app works fine on its own. I just don't see any summary on the lock screen like I expected.

Can others get weather to display on the lock screen correctly?
