Following on from our post about forcing the Windows 10 update, we have had a few queries about the Windows 7 SP1 updates that you need to install before the Windows 10 update will start to download and install.

These updates are KB3035583 & KB2952664 and they should automatically be available to you through Windows Update. However, this is not always the case, so if you really want to speed things up, you can download them from our Downloads microsite by clicking the download button below:

If you are still getting problems with the Windows 10 Upgrade Logo not appearing, you can now also download a script file from our Downloads microsite (using the download button above) which will trigger the machine evaluation process – however, this will only work if you have the pre-req Windows Update files loaded.

All you have to do is to download the 10.cmd file from our microsite and run it as an administrator (elevated command prompt) and this will trigger the evaluation. This can take up to 60 minutes to complete so give it time and allow it to complete without turning your machine off.

Once it is complete and assuming your machine has the correct Windows Updates applied and it meets the upgrade criteria, then you should be able to download and upgrade to Windows 10.
