Windows 10 2004 version

Recommended Posts

As this is an informative thread, I would just like to mention another couple of things.

 

As (my) rule of thumb, I took a full image of all the machines before upgrading. In 99% of cases this would not be necessary, but 99 does not equal 100. Always good practice to play safe. If anything goes tits, it is only about 20 minutes to get back to where you started by loading the image.

 

If anyone is in the Windows Insider program (I run one laptop on Insider), the media creation tool will not allow you to upgrade keeping applications & Data. It will allow you install it's version of a clean install (keep none). If you are in this circumstance, IMO, it would be much better to convert the ISO with something like Rufus to USB and do a complete fresh install from there.

 

This actually took quite a long time for this upgrade. All 3 machines are running on SSDs and have ample RAM, but between 60 & 80% of completed install things slowed down a lot.

I urge caution on this update.

Concur!!  I urge caution on ANY update especially on a "production" or sole machine.

I have Win 10 Pro

Feature updates deferred for 365 days  (2004 is one of these)
Quality updates deferred for 30 days

 

On my Win 10 Home rigs, I've deferred updates for as long as possible and set WiFi "metered"

 

As I no longer get paid to find bugs, I shall wait until at least 3 months after it's generally released to installed it on my "lean, mean computing machine" 😂

My PC says I am not ready for 2004, so I'll wait but it also lets me update to ver 2004 it on the same PC using a Virtual Machine.

Agree 100%. Ever since I installed this <deleted> feature update a couple of days ago on my Acer laptop, it has started freezing at regular intervals, thus forcing me each time to go through the tedious routine of a complete reboot.

 

So thanks a million, Microsoft, for screwing me (and my laptop) up with this <deleted> feature update!

 

EDIT: And now I find that I cannot add any emoticons on here for some mysterious reason!! Grrrr!!!

So the 2020 version of Windows 10 is called version 2004. 

Maybe the upcoming Beatles anthology will be called The History of the Rolling Stones.

 

 

MS haven't done a brilliant job of naming Windows versions have they?

This https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_10_version_history purports to explain them

 

These threads (and this forum) worth following, IMO:

If you go into Settings and Update & Security, it should give you the option of going back to your previous install.

 

This is the reason I make a full image before installing new features.

This is the reason why I run 10 Pro. I've set all feature updates to be delayed for at least 150 days.

I'm not going to be a Guinea pig.

Everyone on Windows 10 Home is effectively that.

There are a lot of ways to get around this problem with W10 home and other versions. One of the easier ways is using 3rd party apps such as the one below. When you are ready to update, just uncheck and away you go. Installed or portable options with this.

What's that take, a minute!

I know it is a P I T A but hey, go make a cuppa, and it will be re-booted.

I'm using Win 10 Home edition because it came with my Asus laptop (2016) and, well, if it ain't broke no need to fix it.

I use a small utility called WUB (learned about it from someone here on TVF, I think).  Actually, it does the same thing I was doing manually, which is to shutdown the Win update service.

Can't be said often enough.  If you don't have the time, run the backup before going to bed, or before going out for the day.

From my experience as a victim user as well as a developer, I have no faith in incremental backups, patch updates, and installment rollbacks.  But I may just give them a chance, once I have a solid backup.

Haven't done a Win update in a few months, maybe this week...
