Here's my scenario:
I am running Windows 7 Pro on my laptop and have reserved the Windows 10 upgrade. I have the white window in my system tray ("Get Windows 10") visible.
My goal was to simply upgrade at a later date when I'm ready...but I can't seem to control the process.
I have set Windows Update to Notify when downloads are available.
When I open WU, I see a bunch of important Windows 7 updates (not selected) and a few optional updates. Under Optional updates, Windows 10 Pro is selected....everything else is not selected.
Next, I highlight all Windows 7 updates and de-select Windows 10, as I'm not ready to upgrade yet.
However, when I finally click the Install button, it appears that my settings were completely ignored and Windows 10 tries to download anyway instead of my selected Windows 7 updates....it says something like "Downloading Windows 10...getting setup files". WTF???
Why were my settings ignored? Why won't it just install the W7 updates as I asked it to?
I simply cancelled the process....but I can't seem to install the W7 updates through WU. Anyone else have this issue?
