Windows 10 auto upgrade stops at 3GB update screen...

I'm trying to configure a batch file to auto upgrade our Windows 7 computers. Yes, I know I could deploy it in other ways. However, this is the only option available to me at this time.

When I run the command, everything goes smoothly until it hits the screen where it prompts you to download what i think is the Creator's Update for 3GB. I was under the impression that the /auto upgrade command bypassed any prompts and performed a full Windows install (or upgrade) without user interaction.

How can I bypass this update screen and proceed directly to the desktop without user interaction?

The command I run is:

start /wait \\server\software\Microsoft\Windows\Windows_10_Setup_Files\setup.exe /auto upgrade /postoobe \\server\software\Microsoft\Windows\Windows_10_Setup_Files\setupcomplete.cmd

Open in new window

Never seen that! But honestly, I almost always used the latest version, so that no newer version could be offered.
Sorry, I misunderstood - I thought you meant updates during setup, not right afterwards at/after the oobe.
No idea...block internet access? :-)

Didn't work. Just tried to update another machine with the switch you specified and I just now got the "Your PC has an update waiting" screen that sits there until you either click Not now or Update.

Where did you add this option, behind the /postoobe part?
You can confirm yourself, that
setup /auto upgrade /dynamicupdate disable

Open in new window

alone would not try to download any updates.

On top of that, my setupcomplete.cmd batch file isn't running after install either. This is after clicking Not now.

This is the new command that I ran with your switch inserted:

start /wait \\server\software\Microsoft\Windows\Windows_10_Setup_Files\setup.exe /auto upgrade /dynamicupdate disable /postoobe \\server\software\Microsoft\Windows\Windows_10_Setup_Files\setupcomplete.cmd

Open in new window


As a matter of fact, updates were mentioned several times while doing the upgrade up until it got to the point where it asked to perform one or not now.

I used that command countless times, it runs fully unattended - no questions asked, no downloads performed.
Please tell me more about what you see. When are updates mentioned?

So the upgrade completes and I get to a log in screen. I log in and then it appears immediately afterwards instead of a desktop appearing. It recommends updating and cautions that it will take up to 3GB of data. It says that it's virus and malware fixes as well as community suggestions. It has a tick box for accepting the terms and then a button for Update and a text link for Not now.

I can only assume it's the creator's update.

What I'm going to do is update the ISO with the most current version available from Microsoft to see if that avoids the problem. If all updates are installed into the latest version then it shouldn't have to update.
