My HTPC was custom built by me and has the necessary pre-load update on it ready for the day. It's not a widespread issue.

The update notice is tied to Windows Update KB3035583: Link

I have a custom PC and I also had that issue. However, a quick google search will lead you to a link that will download a program to modify the proper data needed to see the update. I had the right update but it still didn't show until I ran the program.

Apologies though, I forget exactly what it's called. But it's a safe one is what I can say for certain.

Yeah it is not a widespread issue, but an issue nonetheless. I likewise didn't have problems on my cobbled together HTPC just my gaming pc.
I am not worried about it just thought I'd mention it since the tech at MS told me it was a problem being addressed.

Neo7,

You seem to be very knowledgeable about W10 and I thought I would ask you about this. I had mentioned about my problems with not having the upgrade button and MS tech not being able to get it to come up after a 20 min. remote session. I just got the lastest email from the Insiders program with a download link. I have been part of the program as I have tried W10 on my tablet.

I was thinking; what if I just download W10 from the Insider program site and install it on my gaming rig? I wonder if that will take care of my upgrade issue and I would then just transition to the release version when it launched? Would you care to share your thoughts with me?
Thanks

The Insider version is tracking everything you do. Even after it will upgrade to the release version it tracks and sends everything to MS.

Maybe not a good idea.

Nope not really. Release has different files and installation than any preview/insider/RC versions so that is just pure BS.

I'll update to 10 because free, I have currently 8.1 and it's better than 7. I actually installed 7 a few weeks earlier to a new SSD but after a few hours I decided that nope, not Seven again. Seven is good but 8.1 is even better.

'nuff said.

As long as there are no clear statements I'll not upgrade. Right now there is not much benefit of Windows 10. DirectX 12 isn't used yet, Oculus isn't released and Cortana is something I'll throw out of the ISO together with OneDrive for sure. So there is no argument why I should upgrade immediately and with 1 year I have enough time to think about.

Read, understand, respond.

The other coyote is asking to install the Insider version on his rig. He then wants to transit to the release version.

Microsoft offers the possibilty to upgrade and stay in the Insider programm if you use an Insider version now.

If you really think that this comes with no strings attached and MS turned into a non-profit organization ... go ahead, it's for free.
