Re: I feel left out....

I have a single VM with W7 in it for some diagnostic software that can't run on Linux, so it's never connected to the network.

I thought I'd play... cloned the VM, fired up the cloned W7, no W10 request.

Ah, do the updates. 171 of them. Couple of hours later, now I have the W10 request.

Request it.

Wait.

Wait.

Wait.

VM restarts, announces it failed...

Try again.

VM ums and ahs for a while, then drops back to W7.

Delete clone VM.

Seems I can't catch it either.
