    The Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Ver. 1607) is available, but you will need to install it first. Just like the Windows 10 November Update, Microsoft will be distributing the upgrade in a staggered way, but you can 'jump the queue' so to speak:

    If you are running Windows 10, 1507 or 1511, click Start > Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update then click Check for Updates. Wait while Windows Update scans for the latest updates. Windows 10 Anniversary Update should be presented to you as an available update. Wait while the download completes.

    If that doesn't work, click Learn more just below the “Looking for info on the latest updates? In Windows Update.

    From there you’ll be taken to a support page on Microsoft.com where you can start the update.

    Save this in Notepad as wu.reg and then run the file, or manually add the keys:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX]
     "IsConvergedUpdateStackEnabled "=dword:00000000
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX\Settings]
     "UxOption "=dword:00000000
    (Do not copy the word code)

    Reboot & try again.

    Currently downloading to HP laptop, but concerned that there may be issues with my Asus Transformer Netbook which has only ~7 GB free on the 29GB SSD. Time will tell :)

    Attached the reg file - you will need to change .txt to .reg as reg files cannot be posted here.

    Is the update/upgrade automatic or do I need to babysit the PC during the process?
