    Hi guys. I have Windows 10 64-bit OS on my MSI GT75 Titan Laptop. Anyway, have been wanting to get the Feature Update, version 2004. I have been pressing the "Check for updates" button, and everything is up to date I think. On that same screen where I check for Windows Updates, it says that the 2004 Feature Update is on way, but my device isn't quite ready. What do I need to do to get it? Help and thoughts are greatly appreciated :)

    I have the same, even though I know some other Area 51m's have received it. I'm not overly fussed at the minute with some of the issues that have been reported but will at some point upgrade.

    Here you go, manually force the update:

    Windows 10 May Update

    Tip, ensure you update your drivers before you attempt the upgrade:

    Thank you so much for the help and info. Um, is it safe to force the update? Or, should I just wait it out?

    It's safe.

    Also, if for any reason the update which is usually done online fail. If you create a USB Installer of the latest Windows 10 Media Creation Tool, then while the USB stick is plugged in after it has been created, simply running setup.exe from that USB stick will run the update offline from the USB stick and it will work.

    Ok. Thanks so much! If I go the USB Installer route, how much room on USB do I need? Right now, I only have a USB Flash Drive that is only 8GB.

    4GB + is what you need so you're good.

    Hi again guys. I have not yet did the update, worried about some of the bugs/issues. Have any of you guys had a good experience with this update? I mean, should I go ahead and update, or should I wait until Windows says my computer/laptop is ready? Thoughts appreciated :)
