    Hello all. I am currently on Win10 anniversary update, updated to the latest patch. I want to go back to Insider builds, but Win Update is giving me an error ( Windows 10 Insider Preview 15048 - Error 0x80070032). I tried KB database online but I have nothing on their list of solutions that worked for me. Any idea how to go about "upgrading"? I don't really feel starting out fresh since I don't have the time re-installing all my programs. I tried doing ISO installs of both 15046 and 15048 but both are saying I "started Windows with installation media" error, so in short, that won't proceed either. I have the 15048 ESD, is ther any way to install this manually?

    If you still have 14393 installed, try to delete the content of "c:\windows\softwaredistribution\downloads" and try WU again.
