Aha!! So, Rich, you didn't have a successful W10 AU upgrade through Windows Update--just as I thought!
OldGuy then has upped his status to being the ONLY
one on the planet to have this work for him! @oldguy
: It's interesting to note that your computer is an i7 CPU either 5th generation or 6th generation. That means it's a "Modern Era"
computer, or one made in 2009 or later (W7-era) machine. Your i7 is then a Broomfield or Broadwell-E (2008-2016); and all of those CPU chips do very well with the W10 installs as they are very high-end processors. None of my machines are that new that are currently working with W10 (I have 5 of them), they were all built between 2006-2008.
As I've mentioned before on other threads here, Microsoft only guarantees that their W10 upgrades, including the AU upgrades, will work on the Modern Era computer hardware.
My hardware is XP-era and Vista-Era; and pre-i3/i5/i7. 3rd and 4th gen processors. This could be part of my problem, I don't know. Until I can get my hands on a newer machine, I can't be certain about my theory.
I believe Microsoft has some issues with computers made with pre-5th gen processors (at least on the Intel side of things), and they aren't wórrying about fixing that issue anytime soon, as those computers are 8-10 years old and that is not the target market Microsoft is targeting for W10 upgrades.
They've said this time and again in their Insider Tester webinars, and that has come right from Gabe Abul the leader of the Insider Testing community of like 8 million people.
Here's the wiki link on Intel CPU build dates: Intel Core - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I've also looked around at the 3 other forums I volunteer on, and no one else has gotten the September AU update to go in from v1511 except you!
It's possible that all those other Techs are using pre-Modern Era computer (per Microsoft definition), and that's why they are all failing.
And the fact that they are only writing new AU updates to work on hardware built in the Modern Era, and ignoring older hardware. It's hard for me to believe that all these other Techs are all testing W10 with old clunky hardware like mine; at least 1 of them is using newer hardware such as you have, don't you think?? Maybe that's a poor assumption to make. >>>From a business decision perspective, I'm telling all my Clients at this point in time, that if they have a computer built before 2009 I cannot upgrade it to the latest AU update (v1607 b14393.187), at least through Windows Update and not a Clean Install. Several have asked me about it, and I told them it's 2-3 weeks if I could guarantee I could do it that way, but I cannot at this time. I've guaranteed that I can get W10 working on any OEM hardware made from 2006-2016 via Clean Install, even including on AMD CPU-based Motherboards. So, far I've been at 100% on that
Food for thought.
Thanks for getting back with proof of your update success! P.S. Just finished doing a Clean Install AU update on my Sony laptop to get it to v1607, and the Quick Assist worked great! I'm passing that tip with your video along to my other Tech friends. Thanks again for posting that. BBJ
