    There are multiple ways to install a Feature Update (new version of Windows 10). The most common way for users to do this is using the Windows Update setting. Just like installing a cumulative update (regular Windows Update), a feature update will download then initiate the installation. Feature Updates take a lot longer to install than a regular update and there are tasks you might need to do first to ensure the upgrade goes smoothly.


    In this article, we go through the basic steps for installing the update. Please see troubleshooting steps at the bottom of this article.


    Step 1. Click Start > Settings

    Step 4: In some cases, the Feature Update will appear as a highlighted 'Optional update that's available' to download.You can click 'Download and install now' to begin the download and installation.

    Some configurations might experience problems installing the latest Feature Update.

    If you are not seeing the Feature Update in Windows Update, it likely means Microsoft has concluded your system is not ready for the update and is working with the OEM vendor to improve compatibility. It is recommended you wait until is available and keep checking Windows Update periodically.

    A couple issues we are aware of that might block the upgrade include the following:

    - You need to ensure you have 10 to 16 GBs of free space.

    See ways to free up space: How to free up disk space in Windows


    - If there is a SD card installed, uninstall it or disable it within Device Manager.
    - Disconnect any usb drives.

    Try disabling Virtualization in your BIOS, whether that is Intel VT or AMD V.

    Also...

    Open Start, type: CMD
    Right click CMD
    Click Run as administrator

    rundll32.exe pnpclean.dll,RunDLL_PnpClean /DRIVERS /MAXCLEAN

    Hit Enter on your keyboard

    Exit command prompt

    Restart


    Another way users have been able to successfully install the update is by using the Update Assistant. Go to the following page then click 'Update Now'

    You could block the update and wait a while before upgrading. Sometimes a new feature update will need time and further testing to mature.

    Microsoft to make Windows 10 updates mandatory

    Well, at the moment at least, you can choose to defer upgrades. Under Settings > Windows Updates > Advanced options you need to check the box labeled "Defer upgrades". What does that do? Good question. The answer I've found might illuminate it to a degree.

    I hear this only applies to Pro and Enterprise editions. But I can't verify that.
