Win 10 1903 upgrade

Recommended Posts

I updated yesterday (Win 10 Pro on a Surface Pro 6) and all went well.  (So far...)

 

I've been getting ready to do my annual Windows reinstall, so I downloaded the .ISO for Win 10 v.1903.  I used it for the update, but I wanted the .ISO mainly for doing a total wipe-and-reinstall in the near future.  Gives me a chance to see if I want to reinstall v.1903 or the previous version.

Installed 1903 on two PCs yesterday. One is a Asus 556K laptop 3 years old with a SSD drive and he other is a 4 year old MSI Windbox 111 with SSD drive. Both installs went well. No obvious issues encountered or after the re-starts.

 

Today will do another Windbox with SSD and my main HP desktop,,,,,,I expect they will go as well as yesterday.

These so called major Win 10 upgrades every 6 months has gotten old. It's like drama, and for some, headaches every 6 months. Wish MS would just take baby steps in improvements by inclusion in the monthly cumulative updates.

Did it and lived.  1803 to 1903 Home Edition.

Took about 1 hour for phase 1, then about .5 hr for phase 2, restarting a few times.

Was a little sluggish at first, even after disk and reg cleanup.  Then it installed 4 updates, after a few restarts seems ok.

Finished another 2 PCs yesterday. My main HP desktop being one of them. All went smoothly for both. Nothing really to comment about. So this time MS got the feature update right,,,,,,at least for me.

As an addendum to my above message, it continued to run a little sluggish but then the next day there was a new update, and that seemed to improve things.  The following day there was yet another update.  Today is the first day since installing without a new update, I'm feeling neglected.  :biggrin:

Let me toss this one out, maybe someone can help.

My Windows 10 Home version machine has only one user (me), shows up as Local Account Admin in the user utility, I have a name and password.

Ok, I boot up, takes maybe 90 seconds, I get the screen saver/login screen.  I enter the data, takes maybe 2 minutes until things are settled.

Starting with 1803 last year, if I let the initial screen saver sit for a bit before logging in, when I do finally log in the desktop is there ready and waiting, comes up in a flash.  I was impressed!

Well, now on 1903 that 2 minute lag has returned, regardless of how long I let the login screensaver sit there.  I have not added any startup programs since the upgrade.  I reckon there is some setting inside Windows that can be tweaked for this, so I took some times researching and experimenting, but no go.

Anyone?

Just now updated my PC (Win 10 Pro 64-bit) to 1903. it took some time, got an error at first, but finally, everything is OK. Furthermore, the upgrade fixed a problem I had with the System  Restore. I was able to enable it.

I bought a new laptop a few weeks ago, came with 1809 Home Ver out the box. Even now it says system is up to date. It had the same irritating bug my other PC with 1809 had whereby the right click mouse context menu in Windows Explorer lagged by 5-10 seconds for any options to pop up. This bug has been with 1809 throughout its lifetime I read, and MS introduced it in 1809 and left it there. All earlier Win10's didn't have it. I used MediaCreationTool to force a Win10 update to 1903 and this version doesn't have the said bug.

 

I wonder why MS lets us stay with a buggy release 1809 for 6 months and then wants us to force an update to 1903 as it won't do itself, even on a brand new laptop.

Because MS thinks that there is some particular issue with your machine that means that it may not be quite ready for the update (or that the update may not be quite ready for the machine). If you wait long enough the issue will be fixed and the update will happen automatically.

I had to do that for 1903.  I still had Home edition 1803 and was not given the update option as May 2019.

But I couldn't do the update via a thumb drive (this bug mentioned above) so I mounted the iso image as a virtual drive.

For me 1809 had the right click bug mentioned before, now 1903 has a night light bug where it doesn't work, only sometimes. Reading others are finding it tied to fast start up and /or connecting to external monitors. Oh well.

Since MS released its second update to 1903 yesterday (patch Tuesday) which fixed some bugs and since there seems to be few significant complaints regarding the 1903 upgrade, I upgraded one of my Lenovo laptops today.   Since an update was also released for 1809 which I was running I first did that update to ensure my 1809 version was fully prepared to be upgraded to 1903.

 

The 1903 upgrade went fine and after approx 5 hours of using 1903 I haven't found in glitches/problems....knock on wood (my head).

 

If the laptop I upgraded today continues to work fine over the next few days I'll upgrade my other Lenovo laptop.
