Use Windows 10 Update Assistant to upgrade your Windows 10


  1. Last Wednesday I said my anniversary update worked smoothly on server 2012 prior Windows 10 upgraded devices, had trouble on server 2008r servers; the latter always took several goes in re old Windows 7 service pack 1 download/installs, turned out same was true w/anniversary update…guess some older 64 bit devices just take more attempts before “getting it”, time-consuming and frustrating but worth it. Cheers!

  2. Not successful using the direct download Upgrade Now button. It appeared to be working well, but then posted an error Ox80070057. Researched it and decided to use the Media Creation Tool download button to a flash drive. The MCT took 30 minutes to complete. Then opened the flash via File Explorer, My Computer, and clicking on the flash drive opening it’s files. Clicked on “setup.exe” and the Anniversary Update began downloading. Took about one hour completed without any problem. Many are saying the MCT is the way to go for problem downloads. Try it maybe you will like it too!

  3. I had an issue with the Upgrade Assistant (failing) and so downloaded the MCT, but that fails too. It gives me a message saying “You can’t install Windows on a USB flash drive using Setup”. If I boot from it – it also tells me I cannot update from a USB flash drive and will only let me do a clean installation. I don’t want to do this as my Windows 10 installation is only a few months old anyway, so I am not going through the whole process again reinstalling my software. I guess I’ll just wait for the official automatic update and hope I don’t get issues with that!

    I am of the impression this garbage doesn’t even get that I am already running Windows 10 as there is large text at the top of the error message saying, “This PC can’t run Windows 10” even though it passed the test instantly when trying the Update Assistant. It is a Core i7 with 16GB RAM and has a 500GB SSD.

  4. I fixed the issue. Windows has always thought I was running Windows To Go and so thinks I am running Windows from a USB flash drive, which I am not and never have. I had to go into the registry and change the value from 1 to 0 for PortableOperatingSystem and then the update installed without issue. Thanks for the info though and yes, I am right up-to-date now. 🙂

  5. The current MCT is now 1703 15063.0 I downloaded it to a USB yesterday 4/7/17. I stand corrected.

  6. I installed anniversary edition and everything downloaded perfectly,was installing suddenly the assistant got hanged and disappeared.I even restarted the pc but no use.I don’t see any changes.What to do?

  7. Maybe you want to run the Upgrade Assistant again and see. Or else you could use the Media Creation Tool to upgrade.

  8. I ran Upgrade Assistant again.It again starts a new download.But unfortunately I wont be able to afford a 6.7 GB internet again.Is there any other way??

  9. I was downloading Windows 10, rather I was upgrading Windows 10 to the anniversary edition so I don’t think Media Creation tool would help.

  10. l couldnt download any software and how to change built-in admin to admin?
    looking for the ans.. thanks a lot..

  11.

  12. You can directly upgrade from windows xp to windows 10by purchasing a genuine product key from vanskeys. the key in this site is really cheap, you can go to get one.

  13. Amey Sunu Media Creation Tool will help , best to download the Tool onto a USB Stick then Boot your computer into Safe mode , Then run the creation tool from safe mode, it may take about 6 – 8 hours though , that’s how long mine took, it also gives you the option to upgrade or download a separate copy for another computer
