Title: Windows 10 19H1 is heading your way.
Post by: Mick on March 17, 2019, 12:05:24 PM
Looks like another major Windows update is heading our way in April.

Microsoft (http://microsoft.com)'s next big Windows 10 feature update is almost ready. (version 1903) Codenamed 19H1, and likely known officially as the Windows 10 April 2019 Update, this release brings with it a few new features and lots of improvements to already existing ones.  https://www.windowscentral.com/windows-10-19h1-changelog

Hope it works out better than 1809, that's all I can say really.  ;)

Better ensure we all back up our stuff then before this auto installs

I look after two Dell PCs, always auto-updated. Both still on 1803  and getting regular updates to that but never been offered 1809. I think they might go straight to 1903 but the thought worries me.....

Thanks for the warning of things to come Mick. One or two things that could be useful to me, a lot that I'll never use/want, and a few to make the interface run a little slower (aka improved graphics with shading etc.)

Did I say April.  Seems there's a bit of confusion over the release date.  Looks like it'll be late May before this update is rolled out.  I can only apologise for the miss information.  Sorry.

I've just had 1809 installed on my PC - seems to be lagging a bit - can't say its made any difference to mine.

Oh Oh, 1809  :o  Mark, hope it works out better than mine did.  I had loads of browser windows opening on their own when I booted the computer up, it was most annoying. I did search and found a solution, but it was driving me crazy for a while.  Also noticed the firefox icon keeps disappearing from my taskbar.  (well it's there but it stops working) and have to delete it and add it again.  Seems to be after it updates, though this might not be a windows thing at all.

My computer is never turned off - re-boots occasionally for updates, but other than that is left on 24/7. One reason being that it is the server for my heating control system (Doesn't need to be on for it to work as there is a separate controller, but all the data gets transferred to the PC. )

I see mine still has 1803 as the version. I thought on windows 10 auto update was always on and you had to go in deep to stop auto updates yet I`ve stuck at 1803  :uglystupid2:

Jinky, I look after two Dell desktops, vintage 10 years and 5 years. Both are still on 1803, and both regularly auto download updates clearly marked as for that version. I assume/hope those will ensure the machines will eventually go seamlessly to 1903.......

I'm now on 1903,  this and 1803 installed without any problem. Have not as yet had a look what 1903 has to offer.

Hi Harry,

Did yours go straight from 1803 to 1903?
That's  what I thought mine might do, but they are both still on 1803.

Yes Simon straight from 1803 to 1903. Still not had a look at what's new. Having broadband router/modem problems at the moment

Strangely enough, my spare laptop just updated itself, then there was two more updates afterwards, turns out one of those was 1809.  Wonder why it suddenly decided to install the "October" update now.  ???  It did however kill my Norton security, so I've just had to run the remove and reinstall tool.  Seems ok now.

Oh dear,  :o look what's popped up in my Windows update today.  I assume they've fixed the issues they were having, and now rolling it out.  Anyone else installed it?

Post by: Hinfrance on June 12, 2019, 06:05:53 AM
I've already had a few fixes from app vendors for 1903, but I haven't got 1903 yet.

Post by: Mick on June 12, 2019, 08:47:56 AM
Went for it.  Failed to install the first time, gave an error code which appears to mean it didn't download properly.  Went back to Windows update and it was downloading it again.  Then it proceeded to start installing it in the background.  By the time I went to bed it was at 68% installed.  Left it on all night and this morning it was waiting for me to restart so it could finish the update.  Another hour later and it's installed and seems to be working well atm. (touches wood).

My pc died whilst we were away in wales over the weekend.  Psu gone. So bought a new one with a new case as the one I have is just too small.

Got it all rebuilt and booted and it’s decided to go straight for a windows update.

Which then failed. so rolled back and the. Froze on the boot screen.  Powered off and back on
Rebooted and it again went for another update - but very quickly decided to roll back.

Now going to bed.

I updated both our laptops, and one Desktop PC with 1903 without problems so far. I have one old desktop to go.

One reason might be that I didn't put new heatsync paste on after cleaning the dust out of the fins - and I also think it wasn't clipped in properly.

So was running very hot (90'c!) and was folding back something rotton!

All sorted now - and idles at just under 40'C - but rapidly rises when pushed a bit - so have ordered a better cooler - one that should cope as its rated at 130W and my CPU seems to top out at 50!
Title: Re: Windows 10 19H1 is heading your way.
Post by: anglefire on July 21, 2019, 01:20:41 PM
New cooler is installed - and is fantastic - doesn't go above 53'C now - and idles in the low 30's - given the lounge is currently 25, that's good :)

And this morning, I went for the upgrade and 1903 is now up and running. No idea what has changed - nothing obvious at the moment!

Post by: jinky on August 27, 2019, 05:58:01 PM
Just wondering if all are OK with the windows update. I`d had nothing until I looked this morning and I had a prompt somewhere saying I was outdated and needed to do an update. I cannot see where I saw it now as an option but wondered if it was safe and how I can rollback to previous if it goes wrong. Is there an automatic roll back offered or do I have to somehow save something somewhere.

Post by: Oldboy on August 27, 2019, 06:48:31 PM
Not sure Microsoft's rollback is any good. Used to use restore often and it worked fine then, with the release of Windows 10 it would create a restore point then delete it? So to be sure I used the Windows full backup to a external hard drive. Guess what, it doesn't work either. not impressed at all.  >:( >:( >:(

Mine's still on 1803. It tried to update and failed several times - said it couldn't configure one of the devices. Then it updated net and stopped bothering me. I keep a Macrium Reflect image, and I suggest everyone does the same. It's free and effective.

Got nagged again. Still won't install.

H, just out of curiosity, What device can't it configure?  Wonder if you've tried finding updated drivers for it direct from manufacturer, and then running the 1903 update again.  Or perhaps disable the device first.  Trouble is the version you're on now 1803 will soon become unsupported.

Also,  is there any error codes next to the failed update, in windows update?

Hi Mick, no error codes and no clue as to what the 'device' is. The only thing I have directly connected is my Saffire audio interface for which I have the latest driver. I have searched the interwebs and found nothing that will help me identify the offending device - if I could I would simply disconnect during the update.

Think you need to unplug all external devices when performing the update, I know there's been problems related to this.

Try installing a old driver for your Bluetooth see if that works.  They had issues with earlier updates killing Bluetooth if I remember.

As long as it's working, then leave it alone. lol..  Maybe the service just didn't start for some reason.  I used to have a similar issue with my battery monitor on my laptop, sometimes it was there, and sometimes not.  I still have the occasion problem with my volume control doing the same.

After another reminder with a threat of support going in November I let windows do it`s thing. Just checked back after a couple of hours or so and all seems Ok and I`m on 1903 seemingly with no issues - Phew!!!!  :D

My 5th attempt to install 1903 failed a couple of days ago. I even went as far as to remove the firewire and USB bus cards from the motherboard, as well as disconnecting every other USB device apart from the keyboard. All my device drivers are up to date, I've done restorehealth etc, still no joy. I suspect that I am going to have to go so far as to download disk image from MS and install from scratch. Next attempt will involve disconnecting all but the C disk as there is some indication that SATA can cause issues too.

It's very frustrating - it installed on my wife's and daughter's laptops without them even noticing.

Mine did the full update, I used if for most f the day then I come back and it has more updates which have taken another 5 minutes. this after no updates for months. Still all seems OK except for having to manually restart Avira.
