Windows 7: Windows 10 won't download

Windows 10 won't download

My computer ran all night and Windows Update told me it was downloading Windows 10 when I went to bed. This morning, nothing had changed. I rebooted and followed Microsoft instructions for clearing the network. Tried again and got the same issue. What am I doing wrong or how do I fix this issue? Only 3 days left.

Many people are like you, decide to get it on the very last minutes.

You need to keep trying to download, or wait for the queue.
Try to find another source to download Windows 10.
Maybe you could try to find in those IT stores, as i expect there will have.
Especially, some may take advantage to download this Windows 10 and sell for a nice price.

This is common problem. I am not surprise.

On whether to buy or not, let it download thru normal windows update or any other sources.
Only just not to touch this button "Get started"

btw, i also wanted to upgrade to a clone HDD, but it is too late.
In this way, i could check out how good and reliable on this Windows 10 using the clone HDD.

For me, so far this current laptop on Windows 7 has no problem.
It is that i do have some software which is licence being installed, as this is why i prefer Clone partition (not full HDD).

Just an idea but did not think of it earlier.
I am just want to try (playing) Windows 10 on another HDD.
What i mean is that since i clone HDD, i could clone 1 extra HDD so as to upgrade to Windows 10 instead of using Virtual PC.

@torchwood
I notice that when i go tol Windows Update, there is this
"Upgrade to Windows 10 with 2,936.3 MB with the word "Get started"
Do this means that this Windows 10 upgrade files already download to my laptop, and which folder, if any.
Thanks.

Hi Eric,
The W10 file is about 14GB, with about another 2/3 GB support file. i suspect that update is the system checker.
