Thread: Windows 10 Upgrade

  1. #51
    Further update: if you are using an NVIDIA graphics card, and you are using the latest drivers from NVIDIA itself, instead of the default windows drivers, you may experience problems as Microsoft wants to install and use its own drivers instead, and moves the NVIDIA drivers to the windows.old folder.
    I had to reinstall the NVIDIA drivers manually.
    An opinion should be the result of thought, not a substitute for it.

    I recall this issue. Very frustrating when WIN7 update would run 12 hours, and if you were lucky it might finish.
    They did issue an "update client" patch back in 2016. Read about it here.
    When I downloaded and installed KB3138612 from Microsoft's website, it seemed to resolve the issue.
    If you get it, be sure to d/L the correct x32 or x64 version.

    Still not working. Microsoft has been of any help.
