Windows 10 – 9879 loaded over after error 0x80248014

Recently Microsoft released the new Windows 10 9879 technical preview. I went to my test machine for Windows 10’s PC settings and changed the setting to receive FAST builds. When I checked for the download I received the error, “Failed to check for new preview build, please try again later.  0x80248014“.

It appears the update wanted to be loaded over Ethernet. Some blogs showed that if you bind the Wireless Card with the Ethernet this might bypass the issue, while others found a registry fix in case they had loaded the MediaCenter add-on.

Plugging in to an Ethernet connection did fix my issue and the release loaded as planned.
