    I was running updates, and seem to have crapped out trying to install W10 1709.

    Has anyone had success installing it?

    Thanks

    Ok. I finally went into Power settings and moved the screen off/sleep functions out into 20/30 minute space and sat with this touching the screen every few minutes.

    It took a good 1.5 hours to get it downloaded, prepped for install, installed, and caught the other cumulative updates.

    So, I'm now current on the 1709 releases.

    ADDED BONUS: I was able to recover 10 *GB* of space from old windows installations afterward, and have over 12 GB of user available disk space.

    Thanks for the info. You’ve given me the courage to attempt the install.

    Don't have mine anymore, sold on eBay for a $100. However, before I sold it I needed to wipe it clean and remove the insider fast ring version. I almost smashed device out of frustration because nothing worked. It kept telling me I couldn't install anything because the drive hadn't enough space. And when I used a thumb drive the battery would drain out even before the installation got to 10% because it was too slow.
    So, I compressed all the contents of the C drive, it took about 30hrs to complete, but after that everything was a breeze. .
