Microsoft rolls out Windows 10 to millions of PCs
Windows 10 begins rolling out to PCs and tablets across the globe
July 29 – the big day. Microsoft has started rolling out the Windows 10 update to millions of devices around the world. Taking into account the huge number of devices, Microsoft has reserved up to 40TB/s capacity from three third-party networks for the Windows 10 distribution.
To make sure that every PC will get the new OS as soon as possible, the company started downloading the update package to the users’ computers a week ago, while many others should get the files soon.
If you have already reserved Windows 10 update, but cannot see the update, you can try a simple hack to manually force the process:
- Make sure that Windows Update is set to download and install updates automatically
- Open Command Prompt in Admin mode (instructions) and run the command: wuauclt.exe/updatenow
Users who want to perform a clean install can download the official ISO files and read the instructions from here.
