Unable To Upgrade Through Media Creation Toolx64

Jul 29, 2015

As the windows update route isn't working on my two Windows 7 PC's and my Windows 8.1 tablet i tried out the mediacreationtoolx64 file from microsoft with which you should be able to upgrade to windows 10.

However the stupid developers from microsoft has decided that if you live in denmark you MUST want to install a danish version of windows 10, regardless of the language you're using in your current windows.. A side effect to this is that you cannot upgrade and keep your settings and apps due to the language difference... Such a nice move from microsoft!

I tried changing my location settings in control panel but this hasn't worked. How i can get it to install an english version of windows 10 instead of a danish one?

Installation :: Unable To Create Install From Media Creation Tool On Win7

Nov 15, 2015

I am currently running Win7 Ultimate service pack 1 and am trying to create an installation of Win10 on a flash drive before I replace some parts inside my PC that will require an OS refresh. Unfortunately I am stuck at this screen.

I am sure my OS version is activated and I have extracted my windows key via Magical Jelly Bean finder but it rejected that key.

P.S. any PC stats linked to this account are a different piece of hardware

Installation :: How To Upgrade When Using Media Creation Tool On USB

Aug 1, 2015

So I ran the media creation tool and instead of choosing to upgrade this PC, I chose to write it to a USB stick so that I could do the upgrade at my leisure. So, I spent the time to download the 3 or 4 GB (we have super slow internet here) and put let it write to the USB stick. I then rebooted to the USB stick but there is no "upgrade" option and it asks me for a W10 product key.

Do I really need to run the media creation tool all over again and re-download that 4GB this time choosing Upgrade this PC or is there a way to run the W10 installer from the bootable USB flash drive that I've already got and do an upgrade instead of what it seems it's going to do a fresh install only from the USB drive.

Installation :: Getting 8024601 Errors When Upgrade - Media Creation Tool Does Not Restart System

Jul 31, 2015

Bit of background: Was getting 8024601 errors when attempting to upgrade with the Windows Update method. It would start installing, get to 85% before stopping for a while. Then it would finally reset, only to boot up win 8.1 and Windows update would have the above error code for the attempt.

So I decided to try the Media Creation Tool instead. I select the option to upgrade this PC, it downloads fine, and everything goes okay until it wants to reboot my machine. Tried it twice, first time it sat there waiting to restart. It never did, no programs exited, didn't log off or anything. Second time it gets to the same stage, but locked up my computer instead.

Upgrade With Media Creation Tool - Setup Failed To Initialize Working Directory

Jul 29, 2015

I have a legit Win 7 laptop. I made a Win 10 reservation a few weeks back. Today, I went to microsoft[DOT]com/en-us/software-download/windows10 to download the "Media creation tool". I chose the 64-bit version because my laptop is 64-bit. The first 100 minutes was Downloading. Next 15 minutes was Verifying Download. Third stage was something about media center.

And then I got to a choice of a) Upgrade your PC now or b) Prepare USB drive (or something like this). I chose Option A. It got to 3% when I got this error message: Something happened. Setup has failed to initialize the working directorySee attached screenshot.

I thought to myself, "Well, the Windows 10 installation files are now on my hard drive. I won't have to wait 2 hours again." Well, I'm wrong. I double-clicked the Media Creation Tool exe file again, and it's back to downloading Windows 10 from 1% again!

Installation :: Media Creation Tool Will Not Run

Aug 1, 2015

The Media Creation Tool will NOT run at all on my Windows 7 Ultimate desktop and my Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro with Windows 8.1. When I try to run it, nothing happens after clicking the message that allows it run. I know it does not start immediately but I have successfully run it on two other PCs with Windows 8.1. I've spent the better part of the last four days trying to get the Windows 10 upgrade installed on my desktop.

After starting the "tool", I've even let the PC sit overnight to see if it would ever start to run. It never does. I've rebooted numerous times and I've also tried running it from that PC, from a network drive and from a USB drive ("Run as Administrator" does NOT work either). Nothing works. I was able to create both a USB and DVD setup disk using the Media Creation Tool on a different Windows 7 Ultimate PC so I've also tried using both of those options to upgrade my desktop PC. If I boot from either the USB drive or the DVD, I can install a new copy of Windows 10 but, of course, cannot enter a product key that works so that does not work.

However, if I boot normally and then run Windows 10 setup.exe from either the USB or DVD, it does NOT run at all (just like with the Media Creation Tool). For a brief moment the other day, I thought I might have found the problem... I forget that I was starting to run low on disk space on that SSD. It was down to 21.6Gb available which, I think, should have been enough disk space but it might be borderline.

So I did manage to get the free disk space to more 50Gb. That, however, did NOT work at all. I've tried about every possible scenario multiple times and have gotten nowhere over the last four days. I even tried Microsoft chat support yesterday but started off with 454 people in front. I wasn't in front of my computer when my turn finally arrived -- so I missed it. Haven't tried it again but don't expect much from that anyway.

Installation :: Media Creation Tool Install On New SSD

In July I downloaded the Media Creation tool and created an USB version of the 29th release. I then used it to upgrade 2 pcs successfully.

Installation :: Media Creation Tool Offline?

Aug 21, 2015

When Windows 10 first came out I was easily able to create a 32-bit/64-bit hybrid install on a flash drive using Media Creation Tool. I now want to create one for my dad who is having trouble getting his system updated but can't find this tool anymore, only the individual ISO's for 32-bit or 64-bit. Did MS take down this tool? Is there somewhere else I can get it?

Installation :: Media Creation Tool Failure?

Jul 29, 2015

After reading an article in PC World, I decided to use the Media Creation Tool to create an ISO version of Win 10 on a USB drive. I downloaded the tool and ran it. All was well during the Win 10 download and download verification. The program then moved on to setup the USB when the terribly informative message appeared..."SOMETHING HAPPENED". THAT'S IT!!! Upon which the program terminates. I repeated the process once with the same results.

Installation :: Media Creation Tool Fails?

Aug 3, 2015

My laptop was upgraded to Windows 10 two days ago but my desktop has not received the green light yet. I was reading that if you downloaded the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft's web site that it had an option that would allow up to upgrade your PC or create an ISO install disk. I downloaded the app on my laptop and created an ISO disk as a backup in case I need to do a clean install on that platform but when I tried to run the app on my desktop it brings up the UAC prompt asking if I want to run this program and when I click Yes, nothing happens.

I read some thread somewhere that if you're having problems with this app you need to do a selective startup where you don't run any startups and you disable all of the services and after restarting, I tried this and after restarting my PC running the Media Creation app again failed to do anything .

If I run Windows Update it says I have no updates pending but it was interesting that every time I've run the Media Creation Tool it puts an entry in my update log that says the update failed. The fact is the upgrade has not failed in the normal sense only the Media Creation Tool failed.

My concern is that I have a reservation for the upgrade but that too might fail so I'd like to get my desktop upgraded to Windows 10 asap.

Installation :: Media Creation Tool Does Not Download

Jul 31, 2015

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.

Installation :: Media Creation Tool On A USB Flash Stick?

Jan 16, 2016

Currently I installed Windows 10 Pro build 10586.0 from my USB flash drive created from the Media Creation Tool (MCT).My question is, I noticed that Microsoft has recently updated the MCT to the latest build.Before I decide to put this latest build onto my USB flash drive using the MCT, do I need to reformat my USB or will the MCT do the whole process for me by overwriting all the current Win 10 boot and setup files that were on my USB?So right now, I have all the Windows 10 bootable files created from the MCT, but the build that I have on there now is 10586.0.

So if I decide to create another Win 10 bootable USB using the MCT (Build 10586.36 or higher), will the MCT do all the reformatting automatically or do I need to manually reformat my USB myself before running the MCT?
