That's the problem: Whenever I try to connect to the update centre I get an error code. I've read it's something to do with the laptop being rebuilt at some point. I've tried all the fixes i can find to try and get the update centre working, but can't.

As i can't get all the updates i can't get the icon to appear to tell me I can download Win 10.

In some respects it's not a major issue, as the laptop isn't used that much really, but it is annoying that something that should be free I can't get!

I can recall having the same problem with updates stopping on one of my machines a while back.
There were some files that had to be rebuilt to make it work again but I can't remember what they were now.
I know I found the answer on Google though......
I wonder if all else failed if resetting it to factory defaults would work?

What makes you think you are running a mix of both?

I am just reinstalling a clean copy of win 10 to a new ssd as I had a hard disk fail in the wrong sort of raid configuration.

All personal data was stored to onedrive after an earlier hiccup.

But love the fact it took my win 7 pro key straightaway and auto linked to my Microsoft account.

Now loading all the software again and waiting for one drive to sunc (slow rural adsl )
