Windows 10: Pushy!

Been running build 9926 on my PC for a while now.  I was in the “Fast” ring and was pushed build 10041 through Windows Update.  Rebooted and install would not progress past 8%.  It rolled back gracefully to 9926, then I changed the updating to the slow ring.  Of course, the SAME build gets pushed to me again.  ARGH!  This time it goes to 5%. Rollback.  The problem is of course you cannot turn off Windows Update in Windows 10 anymore (probably someone will figure out a way eventually…) and they kept pushing this same build out to me over and over again.  You can suppress the update for 8 hours, but then…BOOM, installing build 10041, fail and rollback again!

Finally, they offered an ISO version of 10041 and I was able to install that just fine…but this does scare me a bit.   I get that an update should not be deferred forever, but only 8 hours?  It should be days, weeks…not hours.
