    Anyone else having trouble upgrading to the anniversary edition? I get a "Thread exception not handled" error and it reverts back to the previous build.

    I seem to remember having this issue in the past, although I can't remember whether it was during an upgrade or a fresh install.

    From what I remember the error itself relates to having 2 threads work simultaneously, but one asking for info from the other when it hasn't go any to give.

    I seem to remember having to do something to USB drivers in order to fix it. Can't remember if it was Asmedia or Intel, or whether I got around it by using the default drivers provided by Microsoft, or the ones Asus provide.

    Really not keen on doing a fresh install just yet as I'm not well for long enough during the day to finish it properly.


    (Edit: this should probably be in tech support)

    I had this problem on all 3 of my machines and I managed to install it by going into settings, update & security, Learn more then download the update and install it from there- it takes an age but it does work:thumb:

    Mine installed update ok, but after the first reboot explorer would keep hanging (I didn't notice for an hour or so because all the programs I was using kept working ok).
    I ended up doing a clean reinstall, and I have a feeling it was a driver issue. This particular install had been upgraded all the way from Win7 (via 8 and 8.1), so I'd been planning a clean install for ages.

    I installed it using the media tool for windows10, just type media tool windows10 into the search box on your home page.

    Thanks. Finally gotten around to upgrading again and this worked first time. I wonder what the difference is in the setup?

    Edit: OMG my restart screen is bright pink. What fresh hell is this? Does anyone else have this problem, and how do I get rid of it without reverting back? It burns my eyes!!!
