Weird Flash-Skip when trying to install Anniversary Update

Q: Weird Flash-Skip when trying to install Anniversary Update

So this is very frustrating... I'm trying to install the anniversary update, and used the upgrade assistant. But when it restarts, it flashes for just a second the update screen, then shuts off and restarts again and loads without the update...

Any idea what I did wrong? I even reset the PC and it's still causing issues...

Any help would be appreciated.

Is it possible to skip the anniversary update but still get security updates?
The question is not whether this is a good idea. Just, is it possible.

A:Skip the Anniversary Update?

it's really difficult to get a clear answer to something with regards to win10. Not sure you can block it completely but you can prevent downloads if over a metered connection. The 1607 update might be deferred if you install it then roll back. It will be fine if you leave it on 1511 and wait till the next major update which isn't too far away. This is what i'm going to do. We'll see if this behaves any better.

We couldn't install Windows 10
0xC1900101 - 0x40017
We've set you PC back to where it was right before you started installing Windows 10
The installation failed in the SECOND_BOOT phase with an error during BOOT operation
What was tried: Connected straight to ethernet, Turned off wireless and Defender A/V, Removing the D/L files, D/L fresh from ISO file, launched install file, went through approx 50% and PC rebooted - nor stuck on black screen with swirling dots for OVER 4 hours with a brief HD access every couple of seconds.
Rebooted again -- still swirling dots on black screen. Tried again, same results.
Rebooted with F8 to get original Win 10 back.
Turned on "metered connection" option for WLAN to stop this update from happening. But now I cannot get and security updates for this machine.
Please suspend this D/L until fixed. Cannot afford to have no protection!

I tried to update using the usual method, as the new update was present. I tried twice, and it failed twice. 2nd time it became clear that the Razer Synapse software (recent purchase of a discount keyboard) was causing the issue. So, I've uninstalled that. Fine, so now I go to hit the update button again, but Windows tells me it's up to date? I know for a fact it isn't, because it just told me it could not install the update and reverted to the previous version. What gives?
So, I can see it has downloaded the update to the '$WINDOWS.~BT' folder, but it will not trigger by running the 'setup.exe' file. My question is, how do I proceed now? How do I trigger the update I've downloaded to install, when Windows seems to have decided it's already installed it?

I am unable to install the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, keeps failing after second restart (at around 75%).

Machine is a relatively recent custom build, a little over 12 months old: Gigabyte B85M-HD3 (rev 2) mobo, i5-4460 CPU, Geforce GT 740 2GB GPU, 8GB RAM, Samsung 850 EVO 250GB SSD. Been running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (1511) with no problems. sfc /scannow gives a clean bill of health. No apparent issues with drivers, Device Manager shows all good.

Tried installing via Windows Update and also via the downloaded Windows 10 Upgrade executable... same result. Everything goes well up until the second restart and then the start screen just hangs with the little circle of dots twiddling around indefinitely - up to 8 hours - and no hard drive activity whatsoever.

The only USB devices connected are my keyboard and mouse. I've tried installing in Clean Boot mode with all startup items and non-Microsoft services disabled... no difference. Tried increasing the size of the System Reserved partition from 350MB to 500MB... no difference. Tried installing while disconnected from the internet... no difference.

Each time it completes download, then restarts, configures updates, then gives me the notification: "We couldn't finish installing updates" Following that, a check of my update history shows no failed attempt or any reference to the update being downloaded.

Hi, download the ISO manually and create a bootable medium (which is useful in various circumstances).
(How - where- see the Tutorial section or search the net- not difficult).

That way you download once and can retry and have it available for other purposes. Also you avoid issues with Windows update.

From an admin command prompt
[Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
chkdsk C: /F
Your PC will need to restart.
Make sure the result is clear or fixed.
Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:

Disable any AV. Disconnect any devices you don't need. Uninstall any program that affects or modifies your GUI.

Do a clean boot then try the upgrade using the Win 10 DVD/USB.

If it fails again, you can have a look at the log:

Windows 10 Anniversary Update Might Hide Partitions After Install

One of the issues experienced by users after installing the Windows 10 Anniversary Update concerns partitions, as many of those who upgraded their computers reported that a number of partitions disappeared from File Explorer.

Furthermore, all partitions show up as RAW in Disk Management, which makes most people believe that all their data has been removed and nothing can be recovered.

Microsoft, however, claims that this is just a bug discovered in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update install system, and while no files are lost, it?s critical for users not to try to recover anything with third-party apps because this could lead to completely breaking down the partitions and removal of data.

?Microsoft is aware of this issue and is working on a solution to be released through Windows Update. Any data you have stored on the affected partition is still there. We recommend that you not try to recover or otherwise write data to the affected partition, nor should you format the partition,? the company says.




You can also downgrade in the meantime
Microsoft?s Sharath Srinivasa goes on to explain that a patch will be released to users when it?s available and states that users who do not want to wait for it can always downgrade to their previous Windows version. Partitions should be then just as you created them, with all files once again accessible.

For the moments, there?s still no timing on wh... Read more

I have a problem after installing the Anniversary Update of Windows 10. This post concerns the process which involves a clean re-install of Windows 10 by the method which includes downloading and running Microsoft's Media Creation Tool, choosing "Create Media for another PC". This downloads an ISO of Windows which, when put on a USB stick, can be used to boot the computer and clean-install Windows 10 (no license key required because Windows 10 was already running, although I have my license key.) I am told that this produces a "very clean" install which would clear any glitches in the previous install. Programs would need to be re-installed.

My question please: assuming that the Media Creation Tool will be downloaded after the Anniversary Update was installed, will it produce a Windows 10 + Anniversary Update version ?

Thanks for any help.

PS: I wasn't able to create a Macrium System Image which would include the Anniversary Upgrade because my problem occurred immediately after the Update. If you are interested in what that problem is, go to:

Hi,
I have a Packard Bell OneTwo S3221. It came factory installed with W7.

I upgraded to W10 last year after difficulty - upgrading to W10 via Windows update would not work, kept installing to a certain percentage then would reboot to a blank screen and freeze indefinitely, I needed to power off then on restart it would roll back to W7. This happened repeatedly despite trying all sorts - clean boots, uninstalling antivirus and updating drivers, etc.

I finally installed W10 using Media creation tool. Everything ran fine. But when the big update came in Novmember 2015 that failed to, in the same way as above, however all other monthly windows updates install fine.

Windows update never tried to push the Nov 2015 update on me again - I'm still on build 10240 now.

I was prompted to install the anniversary update by Windows update last week but that also failed in the same way as above. Download ok and begins installing fine, then at some point after 50% complete I get the blank screen indefinitely and have to power off, then it reverts back to W10 build 10240.

Having checked Packard Bell website my model is not supported by Packard Bell for W10, and they are not providing any drivers for it. This may explain the problems.

Can anyone suggest how to find out what the problem is and if there is a solution? I've tried looking in Update history for error codes, but there is none, it doesn't even show an attempt to install the anniversary update. Like i said every other ... Read more

A:Can't install Windows 10 Anniversary update, stuck on build 10240

Hi, simplest answer is avoid windows update and create the appropriate bootable medium or iso and use it as you did before.
As you know plenty of people have this sort of problem.

Note that the upgrade can introduce new issues for some (search the net), and some are delaying because of that. Older machines like yours could well exhibit such problems. So before you make this change, I recommend you create a disk image of your existing setup - a procedure you should do routinely anyway- to give another way of restoring your system.
E.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot medium + external storage for images.

It's best to have a physical bootable medium as it covers all of:
a. if you need to repeat the installation
b. as a bootable medium for recovery options
c. in case you need to do an in-place upgrade repair install

without taking up disk space.

A:Trouble trying to install Windows 10 Anniversary Update, version 1607

Hello JRAllen72653 Welcome to the Ten Forums!

One advice I can provide here would be to try a different method for either update by upgrade or planned clean install which doesn't seem to be what you have been looking for. When the Redstone 1 update didn't even arrive here for 3 separate desktops as well as a recently new laptop where 10 came already on not seeing the update still lead to fail of the MC Tool to see the immediate online upgrade take place or create the usb media needed.

Twin solutions were then sought! The first in order to see all machines updated was to download the "windows.iso" by way of the MC Tool which equals both the 32bit and 64bit flavors for both the Home and Pro editions. We call that a "4 in 1" type of download that covers everyone.

The second item on the agenda did opt to use a 3rd party program not the Windows option to mount the iso downloaded onto each machine or run from a flash drive where the setup.exe main executable would be manually started to watch each upgrade install take place. Once all systems were set which included one desktop only lately being upgraded from 7 Home Premium to 10 Home and then still waiting for the update to go on before return to owner was to visit a MS download iso type page to grab both the 32bit and 64bit smaller Dual Edition iso downloads to keep onhand.

Hi all,

Wondering if anyone else has experienced an icon display issue on their start menu with the 1607 update?

I have just clean installed (and fully updated) the 1607 Anniversary Update on 2 PC's and both are experiencing an identical issue with their start menu. The problem whilst seemingly minor is especially annoying given that I have performed the updates for some friends and it is a matter of pride to me that I hand over any such systems in a perfect state.

The Start Menu program list (A - Z list) as well as the "most used" and "recently added" lists contain icon tiles for the installed programs. On both systems around 25% of these tiles display a generic "blank page" image rather than the icon image associated with that program. That said the tile in question opens it's associated program and it's text label also displays correctly.......as I said earlier an annoying niggle!

By now you are all thinking ah its a icon cache failure just rebuild the icon cache!! I have of course rebuilt the icon cache following the instructions contained in option 2 of the tutorial here www.tenforums.com/tutorials/5645-icon-cache-rebuild-windows-10-a.html as well as deleting the C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Local\IconCache.db file neither of which corrects the issue.

Windows Update shows "Your device is up to date." This link http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2016/10/hps-new-spectre-x360-is-probably-the-best-pc-laptop-around/ says that the 1607 update is being blocked on this model temporarily due to driver compatability issues. I tried to get confirmation from HP twitter support about if this was true or not, but wasn't able to get much help. Can someone please confim this?

Hi all,

Wondering if anyone else has experienced an icon display issue on their start menu with the 1607 update?

I have just clean installed (and fully updated) the 1607 Anniversary Update on 2 PC's and both are experiencing an identical issue with their start menu. The problem whilst seemingly minor is especially annoying given that I have performed the updates for some friends and it is a matter of pride to me that I hand over any such systems in a perfect state.

The Start Menu program list (A - Z list) as well as the "most used" and "recently added" lists contain icon tiles for the installed programs. On both systems around 25% of these tiles display a generic "blank page" image rather than the icon image associated with that program. That said the tile in question opens it's associated program and it's text label also displays correctly.......as I said earlier an annoying niggle!

By now you are all thinking ah its a icon cache failure just rebuild the icon cache!! I have of course rebuilt the icon cache following the instructions contained in option 2 of the tutorial here www.tenforums.com/tutorials/5645-icon-cache-rebuild-windows-10-a.html as well as deleting the C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Local\IconCache.db file neither of which corrects the issue.

Additionally, I have manually, refreshed several of the icons (right click button tile > more > open file location) by changing and then reverting the .ico file through propert... Read more

I would like to do a clean install with WIN 10 Anniversary Update (1607), and convert my disk from BIOS to UEFI.
What modifications would i need to do to GPTgen while upgrading and maintaining my programs and data?

Thanks

A:clean install with anniversary update & disk conversion BIOS to UEFI

Modifications....none.

Windows 10 already utilizes GPT partitioning....on a clean install. The only thing you would need to do is change your BIOS firmware from Legacy BIOS to UEFI BIOS. You will need to confirm that in your BIOS. Or to check with in windows.....in the search bar of cortana, type system information and when the window pops up, scroll down to BIOS mode......here's mine.

I've got a problem I have never run into before. I have a Windows 7 PC that no matter what usb flash drive is plugged in no exe file on that flash drive will install without errors. I've tried multiple flash drives and multiple usb ports. The system recognizes the flash drive and can see all the files on it. I have reinstalled Windows 7 twice with all drivers and all updates. The only way I can install a program is to download it again and save it to the hard drive and install it from there. I can't install anything from the usb drive successfully. It almost has to be something interferring with the usb ports-maybe a problem with the bus-but I don't know how to troubleshoot it. If anyone has ever run into anything like this before I'd appreciate any input.

A:Weird Problem-Can install any program stored on any flash drive

From what I would understand, if the .exe can't see a path to Windows (C:)/Program Files or Program Files(x86) then the execution would fail.

Have you tried copying the program folder into the relevant Program Files before trying to run the .exe.

Hi,

Some time ago, my Windows installer downloaded an update to the Flash Player, designated as KB923789. The installation failed, so I figured that somehow it became corrupted. So, I went back to the site and downloaded it again. Same thing happened.
Then, I decided ta heck with it, I'd just remove the download from my computer and try to download it again (Or not... I'm easy).
I can't find it. I've done searches for both KB923789 and Flash Security Update, and neither show up in a search. I've looked in my Downloads file and my Received Files folders and can't locate them there (But if they were there, it would have shown up in a search, I'm thinking).
It's a bummer, because every time I go to shut down, I'm asked to install the file and although it's not a problem to ignore the request, I'd like to solve the issue.
Any ideas out there?

Thanks,

Boo

A:Flash Security Update Won't Install

Hi Boo,

If you got to start and go on run then just copy or type this in
C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash
make sure its all that to the point and then when the folder opens double click on FlashUtil9C and then click on install.
You need to be connected to the internet.
That will install flash again from default and it should be ok from then on.

If you do want to find that install the was done from windows update go to
http://www.update.microsoft.com/micr....aspx?ln=en-us
if you just type that in or Click HERE for it instead of typing it in, It will show you your update history.

Hope it goes well, If not just let me know

Hello all.
Running windows 10 pro 64 bit.
I've updated from Version 1511 to the anniversary update, 1607.
Or at least, I thought I did.
The update went well, no hiccups, no errors. Used windows update, let it downloaded and install and rebooted. Alas, system still shows OS Version 1511.
Used update again, same thing, rebooted, 1511.
Went to the windows site, downloaded the windows10upgrade9252.exe, ran it, same exact issue, rebooted, still showing version 1511.
Error logs show no issues. Disabled all external drives, turned off anti-virus, etc, repeated, rinsed, rebooted, still version 1511.
Only think I've not done is burned an ISO to DVD and updated from that.
Any clues as to what's going on?

My dad was "helping" me by updating my computer without consulting me. I didn't see what he did but I think he only installed some updates as far as I know...

Anyway since then every time I turn on my computer it loads Windows Boot Manager first instead of loading straight to Windows 7. I only have Windows 7 installed on this computer so there's no point in it asking me what operating system to load. I tried the 2 main methods described on these forums and they have not fixed the problem. Now the boot manager stays there until I select an option. Before this my computer used to boot in 30 seconds! Now it has to load the boot manager which takes an additional 30 seconds itself.

I did go into system properties>adv settings>advanced>startup and recovery>unchecked time to display list of operating systems.

I also tried msconfig>boot
I'd appreciate help in fixing this annoyance.

long story short, i done goofed and denied all permissions on wmpshare.exe with my antivirus, and any updates that try to modify said file are obviously met with failure. i've just ignored updates that do this for the most part (since they were WMP-specific patches, and i don't use WMP anymore anyway), but now these recent "monthly rollup" updates are failing, all because of wmpshare.exe having no permissions.

after running around in circles in Google, other than a clean install (which i think is overkill for me personally), the only other option i know of is a restore point, and my little mistake was years ago, so that's not really an option for me.

is there any way i can get Windows Update to continue updating in spite of an erroneous file? i'd like it to skip over wmpshare.exe if possible.

Audio CD's skip heavily (i.e. every second or two) in Windows Media Player, but play fine in WinAmp (with the exception that when I'm listening to a CD in WinAmp, the music sometimes stutters or stops temporarily when I carry out certain tasks in QuarkXPress).

DVD's put in the same drive skip in every player I've tried.

Well, I thought it was a hardware problem at first, but when the cds worked fine in WinAmp, that kind of ruled that out, right?

It may be useful to note that my monitor has been messed up for about a week (dark waves across the screen, streaks from any dark colors). It's an old monitor, so it could just be that it's bad, but I'm also afraid it could be something more serious now that I'm having problems with the cd/dvd drive.

Unfortunately, I barely have enough money to eat (and have internet only through the luck of my current situation) so swapping anything out is not going to be an option.

Any ideas what's going on here?

I don't know what to do the thermometer gauge represents your surface pro is getting overheated and in order to prevent heat damage to the core hardware the device/bios shuts down your device. so first we need to fix the overheating issue and then can you continue with the update.

Hi,

I just downloaded and installed the Windows 10 Anniversary Update yesterday and so far I have noticed some changes in my computer that I was not aware of before the update.

(1) Somehow my System Restore was set to Disabled and all of my restore points are now gone and

(2) All of my Microsoft Update History is also missing.

Could the update be the cause of both?

Thanks and regards,

2harts4ever

A:Update History missing after Win10 Anniversary Update

Yes, the update is the cause of both.

Major version upgrades like this change so much functionality, they often have to reset various settings to default so that they are in a known good state. Unfortunately, many have complained about the System Restore option being reset to Disabled (this is the Windows default).

As for your previous restore points, that's to be expected. You can't restore to a previous restore point on a previous OS version. All the baseline files are different, and you would be restoring settings for the old OS if you were to somehow be able to restore it.

Think of it like a Bookmark or favorite, but they've moved the location to a different URL. Restoring the old favorite only points you to somewhere that doesn't exist anymore.

As for #2, your update history is gone because again, it's a fresh OS, and previous updates are all integrated into the OS now, not patches. Those old updates don't apply to the new OS anymore.

Strange things are happening here on my W10x86 Pro system, and I am worried...

After being shut down for some time, I turned on this computer yesterday Monday, and it finished configuring some updates that it had apparently installed last time I shut it down. When shutting it down on Monday evening, it again goes into installing updates, but looking like it was stuck on 0%. After an hour I just let it sit over night, and this morning it had shut down. Then today when I turn it on in the afternoon, it goes into configuring a big update, before booting up, taking close to 30 minutes and restarting three or four times, showing me this screen
http://blogs-images.forbes.com/anton...w10-update.jpg that I have never seen before.

After the half hour it tells me that it has updated my W10 and there are lots of new exciting things. Naturally I thought that this was the Anniversary Update, so I looked into the Update History, and to my surprise this was entirely empty. "No updates installed yet", it told me.

Then I manually clicked "Check for new updates", and then it finds lots of updates, like "Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 (KB3176493)" and a whole bunch of other updates all numbered with 1511.

I am baffled here... what goes on?

Windows tried to install the anniversary update. Downloaded fine - restarted itself with the normal percent completed figures then after restarting got the - 'System Thread Exception Not Handled' message.

Fortunately it auto restored the previous version of Win10 so no big deal. Quick look on the MS site is of little help - if any.

Viewed the Event Log and there are goodness knows how many messages. So I guess I'll wait until the next update. Don't think I'm missing a great deal by giving this one a miss.

Any input appreciated.

A:Anniversary Update - a no go here

In event viewer only the incidents marked as "error" or "critical" are important, the rest can be ignored. Maybe you want to download the iso and try a manual update.

Crap! I see "update to Windows 10, version 1607" is available, and will be installed on my computer tonight! Which means, tomorrow:

1. I won't be able to disable the Lock Screen. I will be forced to look at a "pretty picture" before I will be allowed to log on to my own PC.
2. Virtualbox will no longer run. I will not be able to run any of my VMs until I can get some kind of fix from Oracle.
3. I will no longer be able to disable my touchpad. Whenever I am trying to type anything, my cursor will be randomly jumping to different places on my screen.
4. I will no longer be able to access SD cards on my computer. The Card Reader will no longer work.
5. My camera will no longer function.
6. I will no longer be able to have NumLock on by default when Windows starts.

Who knows what other problems I'll discover in the morning. And I have no way to prevent this from happening. Microsoft will force this on my machine, then will do absolutely nothing to help me solve any of these problems. To me, this just doesn't seem right. This is not the way a large, respected American business would treat it's customers.

Is there any advice you can give me?

   I have recently been getting a message to update to adobe flashplayer pro to view site and have been also getting a message to update the media player. I looked at the versions  I am running and they are the latest. I was told to do the Adobe while I was navigating to this page just a moment ago. When I am at some sites I have also gotten a box that says my media player is infected and needs to clean files. While in MSN.com home page I have gotten a poor pc performance box that comes up and it is kind of shaking when it appears. I don't know if this is an infection or what but am very wary of this type of stuff after fighting with other infections in the past.

I recently installed the Anniversary Update to Windows 10 in my Acer Aspire E1-572 and since installation have been unable to gain access to the internet.  I have spoken with Microsoft several times and their conclusion is that I do not have the appropriate driver installed to run the AU.   I wonder if this is correct as I had no trouble with windows 10 intil the AU was installed.  Can someone tell me how to install the driver and also how can I when I cannot access the internet with that laptop.   I have a second laptop (Acer Aspire ES1 - 512) which I am using at present which also had the same problem but because it was only updated a few days ago I was able to return it to the previous build of Windows 10.  Can anyone help please?

1. Downloaded the Windows Home update.

2. I noticed that it was at 92% of preparing the update, but later found it back at perhaps 5%.

3. Second preparation step finished, gave command to restart the computer and finish the process.

4. First step was to configure the update, which went to 100% in a single step, unlike earlier updates which always restarted the process at around 30%.

5. Computer restarted, and the installation process started working on updating (sorry, I don't recall what the actual text on the screen was.) This was quite slow, with two restarts (as the text indicated would happen.) Around 55% complete, the process speeded up, arriving at around 75% in just a few jumps, rather than percent by percent.

6. Third restart began, which sadly gave an error message that a problem had been encountered.

7 Twice, the process gathered error information and tried to fix whatever had gone wrong.

8. After the second attempt, process went into a restore of previous version of Windows; at least that worked.

This is the first update failure on this machine, dating back to purchasing it last March or thereabouts. Any ideas, suggestions, incantations that I might follow? I don't want to try downloading and going through the same lengthy process again until I have--with luck, of course--anything that might ensure success.

As an aside, I tried twice to download the Anniversary update for my wife's computer; the search for updates stated that the machine was up-to-... Read more

Of course after I set everything to not need password login my PC and MS reset everything back to login with password or PIN. Sure these are all saved, on drives etc. only accessible from the PC environment. There is a lot of bad information on how to successfully recover from this minor overlook situation on your part. You do not have to enter safe mode, repair or restore your computer, or do a clean install. None of that is necessary.

Here is all you have to do and I have done this several times in the past and was successful in every instance. Why I

I'm not sure how you got rid of edge but yes, those removed programs will be reinstalled as that is part of the update. If you removed the apps because you didn't enjoy them the first time, try them after getting the update, they've improved a lot

Microsoft are going to be rolling out improvements to Windows 10 systems over the coming weeks (starting today) with the "Windows 10 Anniversary Update"... think of it as a service pack!

If you're using Windows 10 already, you'll likely notice some big changes/improvements when it hits - including a new style start menu. There is more information on what can be expected on the Windows Insider blog:

Hi,
I was so excited to install the Anniversary Update today on my Surface Pro 4. After 10 mins of use it became obvious the update is very buggy.
The Action Center crashes all the time, I cant dismiss the popup notifications.
Edge crashes way more often cant can no longer load some sites to the point it is useable.
Extensions are unable to install despite following the guidance the site.
Generally the System is slower.
I have now rolled back the update. Microsoft this is bad...real bad. Might trade in my Surface Pro for a Mac.

Lol don't you think that's a bit extreme? trading in?

After updating windows 10 anniversary, pc often remains frozen for a few seconds. It's a common problem to other PCs.  Do you have a solution?

A:Windows 10 anniversary update

Valterred The Anniversary Update (AU) is a whole NEW version of Win10.  The previous was 10586; this is 14393 -- and the community Win10 forums are awash with folks whose machines, which had previously been running Win10 without problems, SUDDENLY developed problems either trying to install this Update, or after installing this Update.My desktop has been running Win10 without problems since the earliest days of the Insider Preview over a year ago and it's sailed through Update after Update without problems.  So, you can imagine my surprise when the AU trashed my PC -- to the degree that I restored it from an image backup. What MIGHT work is something known as a repair-install.  This is the least destructive of all the Windows recovery functions and rewrites the Windows system files, including the drivers, leaving your data, settings, and applications intact.To do this, you will need to use the link to download Win10 installation media and either burn a DVD or create a USB stick: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/media-creation-tool-install?ocid=ms_wol_win10Note that when you go do download and build install media, the tool defaults to matching what is already installed on your PC (as in, Home for Home, 64-bit for 64-bit).  Make sure you select the same version as needed for your PC. If you do not, the resulting media will be different and will force you to enter a NEW product code!Once you have that media, follow the instructions in t... Read more

Dell has decided to abandon a lot of its customer base with its decision to not support the Win10 Anniversary update (1607). I have an XPS 8300 that is not supported. I suppose the only recourse for those of us who are to be treated this way is to abandon Dell as a supplier. No issue with my HP laptops (with older technology) or with my HP desktop.
Thanks, Dell. It is not exactly what one might expect from a business that is customer-focused.
