    Windows Update not Working in multiple PCs


    I have two OEM Win10 PCs for months now and have decided to take the plunge & upgrade two Win7 PCs to Win10. One a Toshiba laptop, is not qualified, apparently something to do with the display. The other, a HP desktop is qualified (according to Microsoft, for whatever that's worth).

    Even though Microsoft said the HP was good to go, the Win10 download failed from the start with a error message to try again later. That PC hasn't been used in three months and now Windows Update won't run.

    The Toshiba laptop hasn't been used in maybe six months and it also will not do Windows Updates. In both cases, it either says checking for updates (for hours), or if I do manage to get past there (as I did on the Toshiba), then the 10MB download stays at 0% for hours (I have a GB connection, should take seconds).

    I've found various solutions online, tried a few of the simpler ones with no success. Before I would try the more complicated suggestions, it might just be easier to wipe & re-install Win7 or go straight to Win10 if possible. Since two PCs are having the same or similar problem, I'm wondering if I'm missing something or is this just a coincidence? Any suggestion for getting Windows Update working and/or Win10 download working. Thanks in advance.

  2. Windows 10 update on multiple PCs

    I have multiple computers, do have to download Windows 10 on each computer?


    You can download a .ISO file and upgrade each computer offline. The ISO should be available by the time Windows 10 launches.

    How
    to: upgrade from previous versions of Windows using Windows 10 ISO file


    Please note, you might have to download the appropriate edition of Windows 10 for the version/edition of Windows you are upgrading. If you upgrade to the wrong edition, ie. Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 10 Pro, you will have to purchase a license
    for Windows 10 Pro or rollback to Windows 7 Home Premium and upgrade to Windows 10 Home.


    What
    are the editions of Windows 10 available?

  3. Windows 10 update on multiple PCs

    I have three PCs that I intend to update to Windows 10. Each is currently running Windows 8.1 Pro. I assume I will need to separately reserve Windows 10 for each PC, but is it possible (and allowed) to update the 2nd and 3rd PCs using update files that
    will be downloaded for the first PC? If so, it would save me having to download large update files three times.
