• Wins 10

    From Ben Ritchey@1:393/68 to All on Wed Sep 9 17:30:03 2015
    Hi All,

    If anyone needs to STOP the Win10 auto Upgrade on Win7, just un-install Update KB2952664, run Disk Cleanup and check box for Temp Install files (should be 4-5GB) then run it, change Wins Update to notify before Download and Install, re-boot, start Wins Update and hide KB2952664. Worked like a champ here. :)

    Original docs mention KB2976978 and KB3035583 to un-install but I didn't find them, so ... :-)

    If you change your mind, un-hide KB2952664, apply Updates then wait, wait, wait
    (chuckle) until you're notified to upgrade again. May take up to 24 hours or more per docs ...

    Untill ms releases a new version of that KB, and the process has to start all over again.

    Been there, have the t-shirt!

    And for those that are eligable and cannot find either of those files
    you can use the below listed link and it wil install Win10 on Eligable
    machine.

    It will do either a full upgrade install or download the .iso file for
    you for later install. But the .iso is NOT an Upgrade version and you
    have to reinstall all your programs.

    Yes, great link, forgot that one, thanks!

    It will also create a USB bootable drive for doing an upgrade later. Just remove the USB drive during the first re-boot and it won't ask for License Key.
    :) per Google article anyway (g)
