I downloaded Windows 10 vers 1803

I signed up for the windows insider today and low and behold it downloaded the 1803 (build 17133.1) version tonight  'Creators Spring Edition'  The Fall edition was very stable so I hope this is the same

It took about 26 minutes to download the updates and install, It's still got the white search box, it used to be black but with updates to the previous version it went white, well it's still white with this version  lol

Possibly the fix or patch has yet to come through before it gets a public release.

Just looking through it at the moment.  Maybe others have had more time with it and I would like to hear your comments criticisms etc;

Now it has been updated to Version 1803 (build 17133.73) the latest build and the search box is back to black again possibly due to colour changes that I made in settings

Re: I downloaded Windows 10 vers 1803

How long did the update take?

My desktop at home is stuck on 1607 and continually tries to update to 1709 but the update fails so it reverts and this cycle repeats with each and every boot, bloody annoying especially as I can't see to fond the reason for the upgrade failure.

@iLunNips  Possibly half an hour for a clean install, try recovery and it gives you the options to keep files and programs and reinstall the windows, depends on the speed of your hard drive mine is an SSD it reloaded windows and files in about half an hour.

Re: I downloaded Windows 10 vers 1803

Yes planning on reinstalling but need to back it up first. The drive in my desktop is an SSD so the install happens quite quickly.

Re: I downloaded Windows 10 vers 1803

Another big update this morning claimed by Windows as the biggest update yet. It took about 9 minutes to load and run it's a feature update which brings it up to Windows 10 vers 1803 (build 17134.1)

I wonder if this is the full spring update that was held back, that was released this morning or if there is more to come. Smiley Happy

PS It seems on checking that it is an insiders release which some claim has still a bug in it  https://bit.ly/2HCfEzz  Smiley Indifferent

Re: I downloaded Windows 10 vers 1803

was tempted to install it with My home pc as i dual boot with Ubuntu and Windows 7, but when i did try to install it, it gets to 99% and then hangs. I genuinely haven't had the time to really have a look at what the issue is, but the new update royally wrecked my wifes laptop.

It completely killed the wifi connection and keeps it turned off, so i will have to look into this sometime this week.

My thoughts on Windows 10 so far are not great. Too many issues to name to really make this version of windows a trouble free switch.

Re: I downloaded Windows 10 vers 1803

The last few updates for Windows 10 have caused a few problems such as USB devices no longer working which does beg the question as to who in Microsoft does the testing?

Re: I downloaded Windows 10 vers 1803

Well after updates I ran Wise Registry Cleaner and Driver Booster 5 to make sure everything connects together and and is running with the latest drivers as well as Belarc Advisor to check that all security updates have been installed. So far so good, my main problems were with Realtek audio, but were fairly easy to correct.

Re: I downloaded Windows 10 vers 1803

When MS release a new build it is quicker and easier to download the ISO to a bootable USB 8Gb drive and use their media creation tool. Using it to do a full clean install is also always quicker than updating the previous version and it takes up less space on your SSD HDD.
