    So on the tip of a user in the PCPper forums I tried installing using a USB drive and it actually worked!

    The only remaining issue is that the GTX 960M in my laptop is disabled in device manager with Code 43 as the reason. I uninstalled the driver, blocked the auto update for nVidia cards and installed the latest driver directly from nVidias site. Still no joy :-/

    So after hunting on Gigabyte's site, I saw they pushed out driver updates for laptops that essentially had the same hardware as mine but a newer graphics card. I got the newer Intel chipset drivers and after rebooting, my nVidia card is no longer non-functional. There must have been some weird conflict that the new drivers solved.

    Try this to do a manual upgrade not through Windows update but by downloading the installation manually on a flash disk then doing the upgrade from it
