Upgrading to Windows 10 just opens Windows Update

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I reinstalled Windows 7 yesterday (as it was the only option I had in terms of what I had lying around on a USB drive), and after some updating issues (which got solved with a Microsoft FixIt thing that I can link if necessary), and then hours of updating, I got the GWX app again. As I actually quite enjoyed using Windows 10 on both my laptop and desktop, I hit upgrade. Then something close to a minute passed, and all that happened was: GWX closed, and Windows Update opened.

I've been googling almost all day trying to figure it out, but it seems like I'm the only one in the entire world with this issue. 

 

My laptop is an HP ProBook 4330S, 13.3" 1366x768, i3 2350M or something, 4 GB ram, Intel HD3000 gfx.. and I have my ASUS PA238Q connected via HDMI to have a proper screen while I wait for my desktop PC to arrive. I am running WIndows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Same ISO used for installing Windows 7 as last time I did it, and same used on my desktop PC as well, which also had no issues. 


New favorite song, sit back and enjoy.

My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

Looks like the option to just download an ISO straight off MS' site is gone, but the Media Creation Tool thing is currently downloading it for the upgrade through that. Hopefully this one works. 

 

I would look you in the eye and thank you but looking at endermen isn't a good idea for noobs like me.

Yeah I did that when I saw that I couldn't just download the ISO. All is well now, Windows 10 has been installed. Thank you!
