Installation :: How To Reschedule Or Cancel Download
Jan 24, 2016
I have downloaded Windows 10 and scheduled installation for this evening. I would now like to delay installation as I am worried about my old Microsoft Money and want to investigate further. How can I reschedule or cancel my download?
I had the upgrade to windows 10 icon in the bottom of my screen like a lot of others. But when it was time to upgrade I didn't want to because I am a gamer and don't want to upgrade before I know everything is safe (all drivers headset, gpu, mobo everything) but I clicked continue so I could accept all the conditions and such. But now it is going to upgrade automatically....
This update "Säkerhetsuppdatering för Internet Explorer Flash Player i Windows 10 Version 1511 för x64-baserade datorer (KB3119147)" (Swedish !!! but I bet You can guess my problem )stops att 95% when downloading. Have waited for hours.I have restarted several times but no diff result.
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.
It's been 2 days since I've first downloaded the media creation tool for downloading Windows 10. Though I haven't received any notifications for reservation, I made sure my laptop's up to the task.
I've the Windows 10 Setup and it doesn't download the OS files (it's always stuck on 0%), and honestly, I am getting so frustrated with exiting the setup, rebooting my laptop into safe mode, deleting folders, rebooting again, restarting download, and repeating the process! Worst of all, when my download hit 68%, it suddenly exits.
IS THERE ANY WAY TO GET THE DOWNLOAD DONE? Or could I get the OS .iso file on any file hosting site do I could know (and monitor) whether or not the download is starting! Because I've spent sleepless nights waiting for the 0% to turn into 1%.
My system: OS: Windows 8.1 Single Language CPU: i3 3227-U 1.9 Ghz Gfx Card: nVidia 630M HDD: 700 GB RAM: 4 GB
I received a notice that Windows 10 has started to download on my desktop. I do not want to install it now. How can I burn it to a ISO file (DVD) for a later installation? My current OS is Windows 7 Ultimate.
I am upgrading from Windows 7 to a pc but it seems to be stuck looking for updates. should I start again? Well, I am starting over but was wondering if I could do something different to avoid the problem.
I recently bought a reconditioned Desktop, (Hewlett Packard xw6400 workstation). It came with pre-installed Windows 7 premium and a Nvidia Quadro NVS 440 graphics card.
Once I had downloaded and installed all the available updates, I had the W10 icon in the taskbar. Fine!
But when I tried to install W10, a message told me that my version of Windows 7 was incompatible. I upgraded to Windows 7 professional and tried again. This time I was told that my graphics card was incompatible, so I changed it to a Nvidia GeForce GT610.
Following this I uninstalled the Windows 10 icon (KB3035583) completely from my machine. The following day the icon had re-appeared on my taskbar. When I tried again to download W10, I was again told my graphics card was incompatible, but although I had changed and discarded completely the offending graphic's card the W10 app was still seeing the Nvidia Quadro NVS 440 and not the GeForce GT610 which is now installed.
Here is the problem, im trying to use the media creation tool to download the W10 iso, boot from a dvd and do a clean install, deleting all my data.
But the media creation tool seems to not be downloading a thing. for exalmple, i setup /Desktop as the download folder, but when it finishes, there is nothing downloaded. i've tried refreshing and a lot of stuff, but there is nothing. and it gets even worst.
Look at this sreenshots:
The file doesnt even allows to get deleted, it says it does not exist. The same to any change i try to do to the file.
I've tried lots of times, and lots of things. I dont know that to do, i really need to clean-up my pc, the same things happens when i try to download it to a usb flash drive.
If I use the Window 10 Upgrade System Tray Icon to do the download then it will auto-resume with no data loss if the internet connection fails. If I try to download Win 10 Upgrade some other way then it does not have auto-resume and I'll lose the data and have to start over.
I have 3G cellular internet here in India. It is unreliable and slow and often drops out. So auto-resume is an absolute necessity if I want to successfully upgrade to Win10.
I am really frustrated trying to install Windows 10 from Windows 7 Home Premium in my MSI S6000 laptop. I click on the "Get Windows 10" icon and a window pops-up saying: "Your free Windows 10 upgrade is here!" I click on the button "OK Let's continue" and that is the end of it. I see the wheel rotating for an hour or two and nothing happens. Nothing gets downloaded and no other window pops up. I have pops up allowed, and everything else is at the default settings. What is wrong with y Windows 10 upgrade?
I have two computers my laptop has updated to windows 10 with the automatic upgrade with no problems.
But my PC will not start the upgrade I was told to look in the temp folder $Windows.~BT.
The size of this folder was 5.88 GB. And had been like that for a couple of days.
After reading on [URL] .... It said that the upgrade might be corrupt I followed the advice and went to (Windows/ Software Distribution/ Download) and deleted everything in that folder. Then I ran the command prompt as an administrator. Type in "wuauclt.exe /updatenow".en as advised on the website.
Almost straight away the windows upgrade started again but it has gone back to the 5.88 Gb and stopped again
Looking at windows update and view update history I see there are 6 failed attempts to upgrade to windows 10 all with Error details code 80240020....
My plan is soon after I get the Win 8.1 laptop to download and install Win10. Here 3G cellular internet is slow and unreliable. I'm scared that if I try to download Win10 it will fail and I'll have to start the download from the beginning.
Someone told me that the Win10 download includes the ability to auto-resume so that if a download fails it can re-start from where it left off once the internet comes back. Is that true? I need to get confirmation on this before I get my new Win8.1 laptop.
If Win10 download really does have auto-resume capability then I can do the Win10 download and resume as needed if the download fails. without losing data.
How to confirm that Win10 download has auto-resume capability so downloaded data is not lost.
Desktop settings seem to have been totally HOSED UP on build 100130 - Works on some machines but this one - the Task bar won't hide so I can't get access to the SAVE / SAVE AS / CANCEL buttons when doing a download.
I don't want to make text smaller -- it's small enough already --often have problems with tiny text in menus etc --for example Photoshop !)!!!.
How do you go about downloading cds in this windows ten montrosity? i amm not interested in having them in one of the stupid apps that come with this mess. i want them in a music folder where i can burn them onto different cds...
I've been running WIndows 10 for a little while now, over a month. Now, for some reason I cannot download a file. If I try from Firefox, it fails, if from IE it fails and if from Edge it fails. I'm stumped??? I can surf the web but just can't download any file at all. I've tried downloading attachments from my gmail as well as software from other web sites.
In Windows 10, when I try to open a file within a page or open an attachment it always goes to the Download folder rather than opening. This to say the least is frustrating. This never happened when using Windows 8.1. Is there any way to prevent this happening?
Okay, so I am trying to download something from a disk, but it won't let me because I'm not an administrator, except I am. I can't do anything about it because it says I need to try in an admin's password, which i do not know and it doesn't even give me the option to type in anything.
