Strange. All computers in my domain are unable to upgrade to Windows 10. Is there a security or policy setting at the domain level that would prevent this?

"downloads"?  If you run the install from an ISO and don't have it download then there shouldn't be any downloading.

When it fails, what messages do you get?

Log in locally (not on the domain) and try the upgrade again.

Had to do with group policy. I created a temp policy to inherit nothing on domain and put computer accounts in to upgrade
