    Woke Up and Found Win10 Upgrade already Download





    I was looking at the files on my x86 laptop this morning and noticed Windows-BT downloaded at 5.30AM

    snagged the esd from sources folder and created an ISO
    also created an ISO from the Windows-bt folder

    it is version 10240
    Click image for larger version

    If you want to make an ISO image of the actual Upgrade for your PC

    Download and extract the correct Oscdimg .zip and copy the contents (files) into the Windows\System32 folder

    And then run this from command prompt (admin)

    Code:
    Oscdimg -bootdata:2#p0,e,bEtfsboot.com#pEF,e,bEfisys.bin -h -m -o -u1 -udfver102 "C:\$Windows.~BT" C:\PC_Upgrade.iso
    You will find the PC_Upgrade.iso on C:\

    Need to tell people to unblock it in properties I just got home from work and as usual forced an update as I leave my PC's off. I then saw your post, Jimmy it worked for me after I copied the "Contents" like you said, and not the Folder like I did the first time. Thank you thank you thank you!

    I wanted to rep you(oh how you deserve it for this) but we can't in News I'll get you on another of your postings though

    Hello guys I need your help!
    Today when I turned on my laptop I got a message that important updates are available and I should install them.
    But when I went to windows update there was nothing! I looked at my "windows update history" and I see :
    Upgrade to windows 10 Pro failed! (listed as important update)
    I restarted my pc and another upgrade to windows pro failed message appeared.

    I used the command cliff s posted:
    "Oscdimg -bootdata:2#p0,e,bEtfsboot.com#pEF,e,bEfisys.bin -h -m -o -u1 -udfver102 "C:\$Windows.~BT" C:\PC_Upgrade.iso"
    and it made an iso on my hard disk without giving me what version of windows 10 it is!

    btw last night I registered for windows insider program. Is this why I got this update?
    am I getting a insider version instead of the final build that should go to normal users?
    is there a way to check the iso and find out what version it is?

    Too many questions! but thanks for your help

    Edit:
    Here is what I found in SetupPlatform.ini file located in Drivers/DU directory of the iso
    ImageInfo=Client|Professional|10.0.10240.16384.0|9|en-US

    Ah AND MOST IMPORTANT:
    Should I install now from the iso or wait....?

    I think everyone is having that error. It's like the only error you shouldn't really worry about lol.
