Preferred Solution: Insider update stuck

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Insider update stuck

You can keep waiting (I wouldn't, but patience has never been one of my more outstanding virtues), or you can forcibly reboot your machine. Then, you can either install and try the Windows Update MiniTool (which often works when Windows Update does not) or you could visit the Microsoft Catalog and manually download KB3206309 (except I can't find it there -- does anybody know of another source for this update? I'm thinking it's fast ring only, and doesn't hit the catalog until the update goes out to the slow ring. Is that correct?).
I guess that means you should try WUMT (Windows Update MiniTool) and hope for the best!

I am installing the Windows 10 Mobile Preview on my Lumia 640xl for the first time, and am trying to go to build 10536 straight from 8.1. I started the update at 10am, and it is not 5:20, but the update status is still at 0%. I read that this is common problem with this update, but is there anything I can do to fix it?

Answer:Why is my Windows Mobile Insider update stuck at 0%?

I was on the last preview build and mines was stuck for a day I had to hard reset and then when reinstalled windows insider amd connected to WiFi it installed right away

Hi all, I have a dell xps 13 2015 touch screen. It started an insider build update on Windows 10 a week or two back and is still stuck on 80%, howner can i fix this? Please send help.

Answer:Windows 10 insider build update stuck on 80%

The Insider Previews aren't stable releases they are test builds... you shouldn't use them on a primary machine. If you need to recover files follow this guide:
http://dellwindowsreinstallationguide.com/data-recovery-using-fedora/ 
You can download Windows 10 and clean install:
http://dellwindowsreinstallationguide.com/download-windows-10-oem-and-retail-iso/ 
If you want to remain on the Insider Preview. Use the Insider Preview .iso:

Sup people! Happy New Year to those I haven't given it to. I'm having some serious problems trying to upgrade to the latest Insider build. I'm currently in 15002.1001 on the fast ring. I'm stuck downloading the updates @ 95%.

I have done the following:
Stopped the Windows Update Service and deleted the all the files inside the Downloads folder from the SoftwareDistribtuion (I needed to finish those steps in Safe Mode because it wouldn't delete them while "normal", even with taking ownership).Tried running "latestwe.diagcab" (Windows Update Troubleshooter) and it fixed the Database Corruption Store from the Windows Update.I have turned off Delivery Optimization (the one which shares Windows Update from local PCs and from the Internet).I've rank Disk Cleanup and CCleaner and cleaned everything up.Ran sfc -scannow and chkdsk -f and no problems were found.

I seriously do not know what else I can do, except for doing a manual update from Winaero's blog (Download Windows 10 Build 15007 ISO images - Winaero) or a clean install (Which I'd like to avoid).

Any other suggestions?

Answer:Windows 10 Insider 15007 stuck at 95%.

I found myself in the same situation, and ended up downloading the ISO file linked in Sergey Tkachenko's WinAero.com post entitled "Download Windows 10 Build 15007 ISO images." That was a painfully slow and long update (3.98 gb) from a server in New Zealand, but it worked like a charm for me when done. Couldn't get the update to download successfully any other way.
If you have problems with the download situation, post again here, and I'll see if I can share a copy via DropBox or something...

I'm a Insider member since Oct 2014, get all the builds till the official launch of Windows 10 last July.

A few days before the official launch my Windows 10 TP (build 10240) had a boot problem and gave me a UEFI boot error, since the Insider Program was locked and I can't get any Insider Preview build to work I had format my PC and install my Windows 8 Pro and follow the upgrade path to Windows 10. (Reserve a copy, wait for the update and install the Windows 10 (Pro) and activate with my valid Windows 8 Key, no hassles there.

After success upgrade I went to Security and Updates > Windows Update > Advanced Options and hit the Get Insider builds > Get Started button, restart my PC and check if Fast Ring was selected and it was. Last month it came out Build 10525 and later on Build 10532 and I didn't receive any of those.

I tried to force the download by hitting constantly the Check update button on Windows Update, but the only thing my Windows Update download is Windows Defender definitions. So, I tried the following: in Advanced Option, I hit the Stop receive preview builds, restart PC and go there again I hit the button Get Preview Builds, restart again and wait a few days... no luck.

Since I don't had any luck there I post some questions in Microsoft Answers and report the problem, a few days later receive some answers, but none of the those answers worked out and one of them seems to me a bit stupid, so the suggestions was:

My battery level was on 15% then I went for a nap and after waking up, the battery level was still on 15%. I checked if the battery adapter was plugged in correctly and even tested it on another laptop to see if It works and it did. My laptop does charge but only the indicator doesn't work properly as it should. My guess is that there should a problem with the drivers because when I opened device manager and reinstall the AC drivers, it then displays the current battery level but the problem still persists.
Thanks!

Question: Insider update.

Have windows 10 1511 with digital rights. At 7 am NY time this morning I changed my settings for fast ring, I am a registered insider. How long before I get 14393.5 update?

Henry

Answer:Insider update.

Usually takes 24-48 hours after switching ring. There is truly no rhyme or reason to the exact time MS clears you for the download. You will get 14393.0 first and then a Cumulative Update to 14393.5 if and only if you are set to the Fast ring. So be sure to check which ring you have after you get 14393.0. For me it was initially set to Release Preview.

You should already have received this in your email.Microsoft has made some adjustments in the agreement for those who are in the insider program.https://insider.windows.com/en-us/program-agreement/?OCID=WIP_r_Body_termsIt appears to be just a change in some legal terms.Here is my question. Does this really change anything?In a commercial environment, automatic updates can present some risk to the business. So frequent backups and a redundant method of doing business ought to be standard. Doesn't everybody know that?   

Answer:Insider Program Update.

They have updated the terms a few times previously.I found a previous copy of the terms here:https://web.archive.org/web/20170827044049/https://insider.windows.com/en-us/program-agreement/It looks like the new revision is much, much shorter. (6 versus 13 pasges when I pasted into Word)Looking it over it seems like they largely simplified it.I'm not sure what your last paragraph/sentence has to do with this, though. This agreement only applies to "Windows Insiders"; an exclusive term they have used to replace their QA department with volunteers.

So can u guys suggest me what to do in order to receive normal updates? Currently the update setting shows windows 10 update ready to download... Is there any trick that can help me?
Thank you.

Answer:Some help regarding wp 8.1 update 2 (via windows insider app)

I believe you will have to hard reset the device since you aren't supposed to stay on Update 2. It was supposed to stay there for a little bit, then upgrade to 10 automatically. Erase the device to "forget" that whole plan.
However, there may or may not be a less destructive solution since while I know when the device is asking to install it's too late, but I don't know about asking to download.

I updated my lumia 640 by windows insider...is there any problem?
Plz help me

Answer:Windows insider vs update advisor

Update adviser is to let you know whether or not your phone is compatible and for when MS/Carrier have the official WM10 update ready for your phone. Windows Insider is so you can preview pre release builds of WM10 on your device. Which ring did you choose? I updated my wife's 640 to the insider release preview ring for the .242 update(which will be more stable than the slow or fast rings) then removed her from the insider program so she'll get the next production release. I hope this makes sense, let me know if you need me to clarify anything.

When I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 Pro my Win 10 was activated. I decided to stay on the Insider Preview and today was upgraded to version 10525. After the upgrade, I noticed the Windows Watermark showing this as an Evaluation Copy and no longer have activated copy, but a Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview Copy. Does anyone know why I went through the update farce if you lose it by staying in the Insider Preview.

My bad. Just rechecked and does show it's activated.

I seem to be stuck on 10525. I keep getting the message that a restart is scheduled for update to th2_release Professional 10532, but no matter how many times I restart it, it won't install the update. Hell, it won't even restart automatically most of the time. I don't get an error message or anything, just the same message that a scheduled restart is in effect. I've also tried disabling insider builds, but when I reboot, it's still enabled. I can't roll back to 10240 because it will delete everything no matter what I do. I don't have the option to save my stuff. I'm not worried about my files, they're backed up. I just don't want to reinstall all my apps again. Any suggestions?

Before heading off for the holidays I wanted to give a little bit of an update on how things are shaping up for Windows 10, especially since we don?t have a build for you this month. I know that some of you are disappointed that we didn?t release another build (though we know some of them escaped?.I?m looking at you 9888 & 9901?)* but now that we?ve announced our event on January 21st I can finally explain why we didn?t. We?ve been very hard at work putting together a great build for you that includes a bunch of new features and improvements. As all of those payloads came in we needed to stabilize code, fix any integration issues, and ensure all of the new UX is polished. We?re really focused on making the next build something that we hope you?ll think is awesome. In fact, just so that we have a *daily* reminder to ourselves that we want this build to be great, we even named our build branch FBL_AWESOME. Yeah, it?s a bit corny, but trust me that every Dev that checks in their code and sees that branch name gets an immediate reminder of our goal. We?re super excited to show you what we?ve been up to! Look for a follow-up blog post from us on where to tune-in to the live webcast on January 21st.

This Windows Insider thing seems to be gaining momentum

You'll wait a few months for a device from MS with similar specs. However, there have been several new models released that run W10M. If you're not particular about getting a microsoft branded phone, you could purchase one assuming it is available in your region
You could also test with insider after buying 640xl. But you'll have to do upgrade process carefully. Check the forums for guidelines

I have been successfully updating as a Insider Win 10 since Oct 2014 with no problems. I recently did a clean install of build 11102 and it seems ok. A few slow downs and hangs but generally ok.
Recently I received notification from MS that build 14257 was available for download. I downloaded the file as always and it went through the usual prep and getting ready etc. When it rebooted to start the install I get a screen asking me to "Choose your Keyboard L/O" I choose United States and then it reverts back to "Choose an Option" I choose "continue & Exit to Win 10" and it boots back into my build 11102. I've tried this three or four times with the same result.
I have downloaded and run the MS Fit-It for upgrades to no avail. I have tried using a Local account, still does the same thing. I created an ISO TechNet and it does the same thing when trying to do a clean install.

I like many others have been having a problem getting my Windows Update set up to get insider builds. Even though I had signed in using my Microsoft account, I get getting the "Fix me" button which gave me a message about stopping insider builds. I think I identified the problem. I did a clean install of 10162 on a spare drive as a stand alone system. Update told me I was all set to get insider builds. Then I reattached my drive with Windows 8.1 and set it up for dual boot. As soon as I did this I got the infamous "Fix me" button. I then disconnected the Windows 8.1 drive and update told me I was once again all set to get insider builds. Strange - when Update sees another windows install on my system, it disables insider builds.

Answer:Problem with getting Insider Builds thru Windows Update

Yup that is unfortunately what happens if you dual boot with another version of Windows.
I get exactly the same scenario dual booting Windows 10 and 7.
If I want to update Win 10 I have to disconnect my Win 7 drive then all goes well until I reconnect my Win 7 drive and boot up, then follows a sequence of CHKDSK.

Hello, I've been trying for hours to get my HTC One M8 to run the Windows 10 preview, but I'm having some issues.
- As most people have suggested, I've hard reset my phone, not used a backup, then installed the insider preview and signed up for fast ring (I hear the newest build is great).
- Once I've done this and the phone has restarted and everything, I go to check for updates and.... nothing. Says my device is up to date.
- Tried resetting (twice), using the WP recovery tool, and still no updates come around.

You will not get an upgrade using the fast ring on the HTC, that is just for "supported" devices. You can get the very good 10586.218 release using "Insider Release" not "slow" or "fast" though. Not sure if "production" ring will get you anything either.

Answer:NEED HELP; roll back to 8.1 but the phone won't update to W10 under insider program

Switch to the Release ring. That should get you onto the 10586.164 build, eventually. Both the Fast and Slow rings are now Redstone-focused so the 920 won't receive updates on them since it's not supported for upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile, officially.
Barring that, you will need to edit the registry which is a harder/more involved path to upgrade to W10M.

Greetings all,

I have a DVD copy of the latest Insider Build (16288) thanks to 'f14tomcat'

I have the latest Creator's Build on both my laptop/desktop (15063.608). I am wondering if i can do an update using the DVD (within Windows, not booting from the DVD) without actually being part of the Insider's program?? If so, will this trigger my Windows install to automatically put me in the Insider's program (hoping not)

Since this build has no expiration i was hoping to run it on my desktop (taking image before doing of course) till the Fall Build is released & install that over 16288. Is this possible?? Can anyone point out any negatives to doing such??

I've read more positive remarks about this build so i'm willing to give it a shot as long as it is doable. I will hold off till i hear from the gurus.
TIA,

Hello all,

Real quick, I'm having an issue where I try to update from Build 15031.rs2_release.170204-1546 to the next rs2_release available via Windows Update. The update downloads, does the pre-install, boots me into the traditional blue screen of updating, finishes, then reboots me to get back into the OS. At this juncture, I am at a blue flag and white dot circle, which has stopped spinning (it spins for approx .75 seconds) and halts, machine stays in this state ad infinitum. I can reboot it, at which point it goes back to the same state. If i shut down, then power back up instead (cold boot), the machine reverts the upgrade and goes back to the previous build and everything is honkey dorey.

Thing 1) I do not have a wireless USB mouse/dongle. Please don't recommend I remove it as one does not exist.
Thing 2) I have removed two possible culprits (Creative SoundBlaster Z card, Asus Wireless-N card). No change.

Thing 4) I even went so far as to disconnect my NZXT water cooler USB connector from the motherboard header and reboot. No change.

Hi folks

Anybody who is an Insider member and has downloaded the CU update could you tell me whether Ms has finally fixed the ongoing Long File name problem (directory/folder path lengths where file names must be less than approx. 200 - 260 chars.

Answer:Insider Members - CU update has it fixed long file names

Do you mean this?






Tip Starting in Windows 10, version 1607, MAX_PATH limitations have been removed from common Win32 file and directory functions. However, you must opt-in to the new behavior.

A registry key allows you to enable or disable the new long path behavior. To enable long path behavior set the registry key at HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem LongPathsEnabled (Type: REG_DWORD).

This is the 2nd stage with blue background, not the initial loading windows flag. I've since rebooted a few times, but ... nothing ...
I booted a windows 10 USB to attempt to run recovery options but received a message that an update was in progress ("it looks like you started an upgrade and booted from installation media"). I was unable to revert to a previous build, and startup repair didn't help. I can get to the command line but other than copy files there's little else I can do (system is *of course* all backed up anyway to crashplan, and non system drive data looks intact in any case)
Any tips - other than a clean install? perhaps not such a bad thing after over a year of insider builds....

Today I tried to update my Windows 10 insider preview (fast) system to the latest build. During the first attempt I received a BSOD and rollback. After multiple reboots and cleanups (such as removing kaspersky) I was able to do the update again.

Can you disable those you don't need? Keep messaging enabled to run in backgroundIn battery section, you can also set up battery saver to kick in when the battery reaches a certain percentage. I keep mine on 100% so it's always on battery saver modeIn mail app, how often do you have mails to sync? Generally the longer the time period, the less the battery usageWhat about brightness settings? Is it on high or auto? Auto is better than a fixed settingIf you find that messaging app uses a lot of battery, this could be because it's linked with skype. Go to messaging app, settings and unlink skypeIn photos app, do you have auto upload of photos enabled? If yes, try to not upload high res photos and videos unless you are charging the phone and on wifiWhen you use some apps that are not data heavy like whatsapp or mail, you can use a lower network speed like 2G. It's what I do usually. I only use LTE when I have to use 6tagIf you're using edge for basic browsing, you could try using UC browser.
