Please see the private message that I sent you.
Today at work I opened up a box with a brand spanking new W10 computer in it.
My first check is to run "winver" from the run dialog and see what version of W10 is installed.
And, guess what? Yep, W10 build 10240 (the older one) was the version on the new system.
So I updated the UEFI, and then installed the 1511 update (which is the build 10585 version) before doing anything else.
It's not uncommon for systems to sit on the shelf for a while before they're sold.
For example, the OEM has to manufacture it and ship it to this country (if it's manufacturered elsewhere). They'll wait until they have enough to make the shipment economically feasible before actually shipping.
Then they send it out to their distribution centers, and they may in turn send them to smaller distribution centers of theirs.
Those distribution centers have to then send it to the stores that purchase it.
Again, these stores often have distribution centers, and may even have more levels of distribution than the OEM does.
As Windows Updates are becoming more and more "forced", this works well for the OEM's
They don't have to worry about updating the build 10240 systems - as Windows Update will take care of it for them.
We push it at work so that you're not bothered with it at home (and don't have the expense/time of the huge download to contend with).
