windows 7 64 bit

I dont think the updates show there, i have 2 hard drives windows installed on both but for some reason the problem is on this hard drive and im reinstalling windows on this one for the free windows 10 upgrade.

I have installed service pack 1 and I can manually install internet explorer 11 to meet the qualifications but the upgrade to windows 10 will not show up still.

windows 7 64 bit

I must have posted this in the wrong forum, I was thinking cause I had reinstalled windows 7 3 times this was the one.

I've tried the windows repair and manually reseting.the windows update and nothing works. The windows repair still hangs on checking for updates. Note that before the sp1 install windows will update perfectly fine its until sp1 that I cannot update further and I need sp1 and ie11 for Windows 10.
