    if this question is addressed to me, I must say that I will not make any torrents of new 10041 isos since they are directly available from Microsoft though

    This thread really needs a moderator, who would kick out users, who act juvenility. This is a serious forum.
    When a new post shows up in the forum, we don't want to spend time to see useless posts.

    Not all Internet connections were created equal. For those with poor quality slow connections downloading by torrent is the best option. Something I can download in a few minutes may take them several days of intermittent downloading and it's a lot easier to start and stop a torrent than it is a Direct download.

    Even Here in The US I have several Mates with a Satellite service that has a very small cap. However Bandwidth usage from Midnight to 6 AM isn't counted against the Cap. So I regularly upload Private torrents so they can be sleeping at that time versus staying awake to download

    Its not just Satellite or low cost ISP's.
    With 'Traffic Management' systems it can be almost impossible to download those ISO's too.

    Here in London, I have to wait till after 9:00pm when the traffic management stops to download them, or my connection will drop from 30mbps to 1.5mbps because I've 'Downloaded Too Much, Too Quickly' i.e. over 3+GB in a couple of hours during the day :(

    install of this build has nothing to do with realtek. You either get update through WU or you load from MS's site to get the iso. Either way will install your new 10041 but can cause a problem with sound driver since these lazy boys didn't bring in a new W10 version yet ...

    edit: and the timeout reg tweak does NOT help in all installations, only some, just to mention

    If your net is not idea for downloading 3GB ISO's, then I suggest using a download manager to eek out everything you can and using it only when you are not using your computer/network. On Firefox I use DownThemAll to speed up the downloads, and for everything else I use Internet Download Manager a.k.a IDM. It may help take the edge off of a painfully slow iso download.

    Otherwise keep your eyes open for a torrent.

    Not most of the time here, and not usually as high as 30%, but often enough to be annoying.

    What, exactly, is this service? I barely use Metro apps, yet this service is fairly active.

    And what Registry section are you talking about re being able to disable it? I wonder about the repercussions of disabling it. Maybe scheduling the service to be on for a limited time might be best, depending on how important it is. But first, how to actually disable it.

    Upon special request situation of current W10 10041 isos I'm ready to provide selected magnets for some guys who have a really bad online-connection. Beware that I will not produce all isos just for the sake of it since I prefer to play Golf instead.
    Let me know your problem and I try to help you. My major problem is disc space in my jukebox. I cannot handle all files at a time because I have a limit of simply 3TB. These are almost filled by now.

    I know there's no direct link, but WU is trying to install the realtek BS first, which fails and cancels that update and the 10041 update. Looks like the ISO is my only upgrade option.

    My connection is fine, I was trying to avoid downloading the whole ISO vs the WU update.

    WU tries to install all coming-in updates and works them step by step. Realtek thingy mostly is left over after reboot and a retry of finding updates. There is a major problem with Realtek which is not solved yet though and therefore the timeout fix only works at some places

    Do you have a link to info about this timeout fix? I might as well try it before downloading the ISO.

    Go into bios and disable the onboard audio and then WU will not try to update it. I should also work from just disabling in the device manager. If you try thru device manager you will need to restart then check for updates again. Then it should install the 10041 update.

    From mine and others, as I am usually one who tries to upgrade, this go round, the upgrade did not work so nice. I ended up having to install via ISO, and rock stable as it could be.

    Seems your talking about 10041 it doesn't make any difference.
    If you do an upgrade through WU it will download the .ESD (another version of an ISO) in the background then install it
    Or if you go the MS and download the ISO and do a clean install (always the best option) its still a 3GB+ download and install.

    As for the Realtek error.
    Goto Services and stop the 'Windows Update' service
    Next goto 'C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download' and delete everything in the folder
    Then reboot and try to update again.

    This has worked for me twice.
