July 29 was Windows 10 day, well it should have been.  I was part of the Windows Insider program (testing out the new Operating System on some old lap tops) and was all set to automatically receive the new public version on my main computer.

Checking my Update History I can see that Windows has tried to install the upgrade several times (the first time was actually a day early on July 28) but has failed each time.

As I’ve written in my WebLinks blog, now I’ll have to download the ISO and either upgrade or clean install manually.  I’ve got no problem doing this, but frustrated at the extra time it will take instead of the automatic and “easy” upgrade.

I’m sure Joe Public out there wouldn’t bother to install Windows 10 manually from an ISO file, but certainly would curse Microsoft when his computer keeps trying to install it automatically and re-starting after every attempt.
