Installation :: How To Obtain ISO Without Downloading
Feb 10, 2016
I am using Ubuntu Linux, and would like to use Windows 10 on a virtual machine using Virtualbox. My computer originally had Windows 8.1, which I upgraded to 10. I then installed Ubuntu Linux, so I currently have a dual boot setup. I would like to use Windows 10 on a virtual machine in Ubuntu. Is there any way to obtain the ISO without downloading it? I tried following the instructions on this site:
How to turn your Windows 10 upgrade files into an ISO disk image | ZDNet
In order to use my VPN I've had to change my DNS address to a specific address. Problem is, whenever I reboot my computer, it reverts the DNS to the 'obtain automatically' option, and completely clears out my specified DNS address.
1. Go into "C:WindowsSoftwareDistributionDownload" 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
Windows Update is stuck at 98% download of 2,085.1MB and won't stop downloading as I have task manager on. It's been over 4.2GB download and I'm afraid to stop it.
I have a problem with downloading Windows 10 Pro .ISO file. I tried to download it two times but every time media creation tool exits suddenly when it gets 98% without any error message or something! and the process in task manager is killed automatically,
I was downloading Windows 10 32-bit using the Media Creation Tool to my 16 GB pendrive which is empty. Right when it reached 100% it displayed "Something Happened". I found the temp file which I believe it downloaded, its called BIT52D1.
I am in the process of downloading with the choice 'for another computer' and using a USB flash. At the last minute I put a label (Win10-1511)on that flash drive which did show up as the drive of choice.
The actual download files are landing in the root of C: on this desktop other than going directly to the 32GB usb drive plugged into a usb2 port. Is this the normal routine? If it is not routine can these files be moved from C: to the USB drive and be usable?
The reason I chose this type of download is that my internet connection to a local tower was intermittent yesterday and the connection stopped while downloading to a laptop through Windows Update at the 98% point. That was an all day download aborted. The process had to be started all over again at 7p.m. The update completed at 3.30 A.M......successfully.
I was trying to used media creation tool to upgrade from windows 8.1 to windows 10 but having progressed to over 75% it vanished from the desktop. What else should i do because it has happened twice. Better still, where can i find the downloaded setup on my pc.
I have the Get Windows 10 App but I couldn't wait for it as I have limited internet access. I downloaded the 64-bit Media Creation Tool after selecting the option to download for this computer and when I ran it the first time, it started downloading the Windows 10 setup file. I lost connection about 19% in, download started back up and I left it overnight. Didn't see how it finished but I couldn't find a new file on my computer for Windows 10 Setup. All I had was the MCTool file still. So I ran it again and got a pop up saying 'Setup couldn't start properly. Please reboot and try running Windows 10 Setup again.' I restarted my comp and it didn't work. I've tried deleting the MCTool and re-downloading it. I get the same thing. I'm not sure how to get it to work again.
I am running win 10 pro tried firefox & chrome both will let me connect and browse the net but will not download all downloads reach about 10-30% and the fail ms edge says hmmm cant reach this page . have tried turning off firewall - malwarebytes & win defender .makes no difference have tried every solution mozilla offers for fire fox for a fix, this all happened after doing a reset of win 10zz
I have a Surface Pro that will not download updates from Microsoft.When I check for updates they are found and show what they are but they will not download. The progress bar shows 0% and does not move.I have tried the download troubleshooter and it shows that it could not identify the problem.I use Edge for browser if that makes any difference.One of the downloads is a hardware download dated 7/28/2015..I checked my history and I have not installed any updated since 12/13/2015.
Before installing Windows 10, when I plugged in my camera to my PC, I got a dialog box from which I downloaded my pics. Now, nothing appears on the task bar, nor do I get a dialog box. Am at loss what to do next.
Do windows OS allow downloading in background videos,files apps etc. in browser like UC etc. Do downloading gets going still if you move out of the app or close the app.
Like if you're downloading 1 Gig of movie on UC browser on android and still you move out of the app and minimize it the movie continues to download or even if you close the app the movie continues to download. Does Windows phone allow this?
Every site tells me to access search in windows 10 either by swiping from the right or opening the start menu. I have no search tabs in either place. Cortana works but it will only search the internet . How do I search my computer like I could in windows 8.1
I have never touched an operating system before. I need to buy an OS for my PC, but I have a few questions before doing so. Firstly, I want to buy 8.1 students as a download. Now I currently don't own a PC so I can't buy it yet. I plan to use my friends PC and download the OS. If I download the OS using his PC, will it try to install 8.1 onto his PC and override his current OS, or will the program just download without doing anything else? If it does the latter, then is it possible to just put it onto a flash drive? Or will we have no choice but to have it install 8.1 to his computer? I never thought about the OS until now.
I've been having trouble with Windows Update recently:
* Three updates were stuck on downloading at 0% * Rebooting the laptop resulted in it getting stuck at the "Getting things ready..." screen
The fix was actually pretty simple:
1. Reboot your computer 2. Open Explorer and navigate to C:WindowsSoftware Distribution 3. Open an elevated command prompt (Admin) 4. Run these two commands: -net stop wuauserv -net stop bits 5. Select all files in abovementioned folder and delete them 6. Make sure to empty the trash afterwards 7. Reboot and run Windows Update again
That way I was able to fix my Windows Update process that has been stuck for more than a week now. It immediately found many more updates to install, downloaded them and installed them just fine.
My issue here is that windows update is stuck at 0% and not downloading anything.
No updates are installed yet, none. I have tried going through a long process of deleting SowftwareDistribution folder and I have used windows updatediagnostics. Nothing works. In addition to that every time at boot and before shutting down it displays "Getting Windows ready. Don't turn off your computer" for a short period.
