    Anyone else having issues trying to install the anniversary edition? I have a 5k iMac currently running windows 10 build 1511 and I've tried a number of times. It does the downloading process and reboots to apply the update. I see it rebooting and briefly get the blue screen where it says applying windows update (or upgrade) with 0% completed, but then it reboots immediately

    I've tried 3x and the results are the same :(

    Have you tried to get an ISO and install on top of it?
    Mine cannot upgrade directly because it is enterprise SKU.

    How did you get the enterprise edition?

    Good point, I'll try that next.

    I'm actually having trouble finding the ISO, Most of the links I found on googling bring me here:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12387/windows-10-update-history?ocid=update_setting_client where I can download the installer (exe, not the iso).

    Looks likeI found it, the regular win10 ISO page on microsoft.com has the updated ISOs. I'm now downloading 1607 and will try to install it by way of the iso

    Hi Mike, not sure if this link offers one for the anniversary edition. Most people are saying that's where to check, but it just says 'Windows 10' rather than the anniversary edition. Would it specifically note AE? https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO/

    EDIT: The ISO shows as being version 1607, which according to Wikipedia is the anniversary edition. However other sources say otherwise; that 1607 was released prior to the AE and the AE just patches it further. :confused:

    Yeah, thanks, I stumbled upon that - you gotta love MS and how they make things clear cut :rolleyes:

    I expect this is how giant conpanies work.

    Anyway, I will likely hold off and see more review before upgrading. I even turn off automatic windows update checking using group policy editor.

    Each upgrade would likely break some drivers installed on your Mac. Perhaps this version is yet to be supported by Apple officially.

    I'm still having no luck, and I was at a point yesterday where I needed to restore my winclone backup. Of course that's giving me issues - go figure. I've restored from that backup in the past, so I know its good. I think I'll try to recreate my bootcamp partition and move on from there.

    How large is your partition/VM? I had issues with our 64GB-sized SSD/VM/Partitions. Upping the size of the VM/Partition to 128GB fixed it, installing from a burned DVD fixed the install issue with the SSD-based installs. Not one to take undue credit with this, I read similar gripes on Thurrott...

    On my personal VM setup, I used MS's Clean Install tool (saving my settings) and it worked perfectly. I had to reinstall Office and a couple of other apps but there were zero issues after the clean install.
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10startfresh - it was stupid simple!

    When I first checked, the ISO image for 1607 wasn't available, but now it is - I was only seeing Build 1511 until today (I'm sure you know the spiel...):

    My bootcamp partition was 137GB. My issue is I'm on a fusion drive and now I think something is messed up because I can't even install build 1511 on it, and winclone won't restore. I've deleted/recreated the bootcamp to no avail. Both builds won't install on it at this point.

    I have to put this aside for now, and circle back on it next week due to other tasks that are taking my attention. What I'm probably going to do, is rebuild my Fusion drive and start completely over.

    Don't know if your specific config is being affected by this update but early reports (haven't seen any specifying Mac) suggest that a wait-and-see approach is warranted.

    One report -- http://www.infoworld.com/article/31...inst-windows-10-anniversary-update-grows.html

    I had issues with two updates last night, one PC and one Mac - upgrades, not a clean install as I'd done on my VM. On the PC, I rolled back from a restore/updated all drivers/attempted the upgrade again from a DVD and it went perfectly; as the InfoWorld article alluded at some point it was as if the update didn't even see the drive. This PC is a test mule for us, and I'm glad it worked out as a precursor of what could have been a shi..., er, crappy day for me in the offices...

    The Mac, an iMac with a Fusion Drive, the fix was easier - updating all drivers in the Win partition first, resetting the PRAM, and installed from a DVD made by Samsung (a cheap BR drive, with those drivers installed in Windows first) - I couldn't get Windows to see the iMac's drive. I'm convinced the PRAM reset was the trick here - the update went smoothly after that. Good luck...
