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.
VM restarts, announces it failed...
VM ums and ahs for a while, then drops back to W7.
Delete clone VM.
Seems I can't catch it either.
