    Yes, just download the Windows 10 official ISO for their website :)

    Would it be possible to install Windows on an iMac 11,3 (late 2010 model)?

    If you are running off the bootcamp drivers on Windows 7 or 8 and you are upgrading, you should be fine just reinstalling the drivers once you boot into Windows 10. You will want to go into bootcamp assistant and tick the box to download the drivers onto a USB, then eject the USB and insert it once you are into Windows 10 after upgrading, then run Setup.exe

    I have tried twice to update my Retina iMac external Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. I am using the .iso file released yesterday, the setup seems to run fine, downloads a bunch of updates, and starts the install. When I return, I find the following message on the screen:

    0x80073892-0x20009
    The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase
    with an error during PREPARE_ROLLBACK operation.


    The second attempt I disconnected all external drives except the Thunderbolt SSD, the only other drive being the internal iMac 1TB SSD.

    Research finds others with similar error messages, but no solution yet.

    Is this the driver issue mentioned above?

    Not working for me. I downloaded the ISO and used Boot Camp to write it to USB etc but on restart it says "no bootable drive found, press any key" and goes no further.

    If it's a new partition prepare it in Disk Utility. Format it as FAT32/Dos with GUID option. Then restart Bootcamp Assistant.

    If it is an upgrade make sure you run check the health of your disk in Windows for no errors.

    Yep thanks it's a new installation (I did it as an upgrade from a working 8.1 first to get the device whitelisted on the Win10 activation server, then removed boot camp and intended to clean install by pointing Boot Camp Assistant to the Win10 ISO). As I'm on a Macbook Air it's necessary to create a USB installer.

    The solution was indeed to partition the USB drive as GUID in Disk Utility first before letting Boot Camp Assistant touch it. Now it's installing :)
