  2. Get Windows 10 now, no line, Force the update

    If your tired of waiting like I was on a few machines, here is the simple way to get Windows 10 Update to forcibly start ahead of waiting in the line.

    1: Go to Windows Update, change the settings by clicking both check boxes under Microsoft Update and Recommended Updates.

    2: Then Change the Important Updates Area to say "Install updates Automatically" on the drop down menu.

    3: Next open up CMD by right clicking on it and saying "Run as Administrator" (If you do not know where CMD is just click the start search area and type CMD)

    4: Once CMD is opened, type this command (But do not hit enter yet) wuauclt.exe /updatenow

    5: Next go back to the Windows update area and click "Check for Updates"

    6: Now go back to the CMD line and hit enter

    You should now be downloading Windows 10.

    It worked on every machine I have done this method for, you just have to have all the settings exactly what I listed and it works fine (Some people were not changing the Important Updates area drop down to say "Install Updates Automatically" which I found is required).

    Hope this helps some of yall who want to get Windows 10 now, works great for me!

    Windows Update keeps failing!

    Hi,

    I had once a similar issue like yours, i.e. not able to update Windows 7. What I did to solve the problems is:

    - go to control panel, then to "Troubleshouting" > "System and Security" > "Fix problems with Windows update" > click "Advanced" > choose "Apply repairs automatically".

    And Windows will start detecting the issues and will repair "Windows update components". The problems should be fixed now, close the program, restart the PC, and see if the mentioned steps have fixed the problems you mentioned.

    Hope it works for you.

    Good luck!
