    I expanded all topics under "Turn Windows .... and Hyper is NOT listed.
    I do appreciate your sticking with this problem.

    Hmm... Ok open the file explorer, click 'view' along the top and enable hidden items:
    upload_2015-9-17_20-7-24.

    Click on your C drive and look for a folder marked $Windows.~BT and delete it. This is what contains the upgrade files and your might be corrupted.

    It is too bad the Admins have not placed "Insiders" threads in a Sub Forum for clarity. But to confirm, you are running that computer on the Insiders program and you do have the previous Insiders build?

    It is also strange the icon for Windows 8.1 and 10 are the same so you can't tell which version any responder is running.

    Hey Weeder are you signing into Windows 10 with a Microsoft account or just a local one?

    kemical,

    I deleted $Windows.~BT and ran update. Same issue, installation of Build 10523
    did not take.

    New information:

    After I clicked on "Restart now", I did see an error window flash by with error 0xc0000409.

    I am logging in with my Microsoft account.

    If you have been trying to upgrade without being signed in with the Microsoft account then this may be the source of your issue.

    I checked my login by going directly to account.live.com to make sure I
    was using my Microsoft account. I am. During the upgrade process a window
    pops up that is a bulls eye with a % in the center. Normally this % would
    climb to 100 but in my case the window just flashes by. This to me is telling
    the Build installation is not happening. I do not know what to do now.

    I went to Home Page - Insider Program and was able to sign in
    successfully.

    I finally fixed my PC problem of upgrading to build 10547.
    Here is how:
    kemical pointed me to Boot loader Grub: how to repair, adapt or remove it - Easy Linux tips project
    which I used to fix this issue. I used step 7.3 and created an evaluation disc of Windows 10 burning
    it with ImgBurn and following the directions in Windows 8.x or 10; fix boot problems. I then went to
    settings and downloaded build 10547 and installed. To my amazement the upgrade went smoothly.
    kemical, thank you for sticking with this problem. It seems the windows boot/loader was broken and
    I still have the Grub working on the PC.
