Update: Windows 10 Version 1903 is ready for anyone checking for updates via Settings #WinTenOld


 

Hi all,

 

In addition to the following:

https://aka.ms/windowsreleasehealthdashboardpreview

 

Windows 10 Version 1903 is ready for seekers – people checking for updates via Settings app. As reported by folks in the last few hours, when you do check for updates from Settings app and you see “download and install” link, this means Version 1903 is ready for you. As noted many times, if you are going to install Version 1903 this way, please make sure that you’ve got things backed up, you’ve got up to date software (including screen reader releases), and you take precautions such as removing external storage media. However, if you are not comfortable with updating to Version 1903 this way, please wait until the feature update is offered to you on its own.

 

Also, if you are a Twitter user, please follow @WindowsUpdate for up to date info on release health dashboard, rollout announcements and others.

Cheers,

Joseph


 

Hi,

As a follow-up: don’t worry about the typo on subject line.

Cheers,

joseph

At least this time they're not just downloading and installing, but giving the user the option.   I always hated the fact that a manual "check for updates" that occurred during the early weeks of a rollout was considered to have come from an implicit seeker, when very often that's the last thing the person who clicked that button would have expected or wanted.

Thank you Joseph for all you do, I really appreciate what you do.

 

I do have a question.  What do people who are still on 1803 do?

 

Have a great day, 73

Hi,

If you are on 1803, I advise waiting, as Microsoft will present the feature update to you in a while.

Any idea how long "a while" is? After all, we're running a year old OS with absolutely no idea why there's such a long delay and what we should expect to happen. Will we skip 1809 and jump directly to 1903? Or will we get 1809 and have to wait another long time to get 1903? If we're going directly to 1903, shouldn't we be put at the top of the queue to get it, since we've waited so long? And finally, why is Microsoft being so silent on this?

Hi,
Not long from what I can gather. The latest available documentation from
Microsoft states that those running Version 1803 will see 1903 show up as
early as end of June.
Cheers,
Joseph

Yes, you will.   This is not the first time this has occurred, either, but the scale of it is significantly larger because 1809 had its rollout slowed to a virtual crawl for many months, while other feature updates did not.

Your wait time is utterly irrelevant.  You can (though I advise against it) force a feature update on the day of your choosing once it's available to the general public.  Microsoft is also still fully maintaining Version 1803.

If you, any you, actually need one of the features introduced in a given Feature Update then, after the bleeding edge of the first few weeks, you should force the update.  If you don't need any of them or, more likely, have no idea what is even coming with a given Feature Update, what in heaven's name is the rush?  If you've got a fully functioning OS that's still under full support by its maker then you're like millions of other people.  There have always been several versions of Windows 10 out there, on a very great number of machines, on any given day.  The only time to worry is if your machine has not updated and the version you happen to be on is being dropped from active support.

Hi,
Resolved as of build 18362.145, although I think MCT/installer may still ask
you to remove USB flash drives and such just in case.

To be clear, the only thing that must be removed are USB storage devices:  Jump drives, SD Cards, external backup drives.

You do not need to unplug printers, USB Hubs, WiFi or Mouse/Keyboard dongles, etc., etc., etc.

Yes, you will.   This is not the first time this has occurred, either, but the scale of it is significantly larger because 1809 had its rollout slowed to a virtual crawl for many months, while other feature updates did not.

Your wait time is utterly irrelevant.  You can (though I advise against it) force a feature update on the day of your choosing once it's available to the general public.  Microsoft is also still fully maintaining Version 1803.

If you, any you, actually need one of the features introduced in a given Feature Update then, after the bleeding edge of the first few weeks, you should force the update.  If you don't need any of them or, more likely, have no idea what is even coming with a given Feature Update, what in heaven's name is the rush?  If you've got a fully functioning OS that's still under full support by its maker then you're like millions of other people.  There have always been several versions of Windows 10 out there, on a very great number of machines, on any given day.  The only time to worry is if your machine has not updated and the version you happen to be on is being dropped from active support.

I have just tried looking on my GPD win, I haven’t seen this update yet.

Hi,

Even if you do check for updates, not everyone will get it as Microsoft wants to find out how folks are doing and perhaps due to blocking issues.

Cheers,

Joseph

Well, "need" is relative. I understand that the bug where network drive directories display incorrectly was fixed in 1809. I'd sure *like* to have that fix, but I'm not sure it warrants forcing an update. But I am finding it frustrating that I'm having to wait so long to get that fix.

I had it show up today on two of my PC’s at work, they are several years old, but on my HP I7 6yth gen it still says I am up to date when I check for updates. Obviously it is still not completely available for everybody who checks.

Yup. My Dell Optiplex SFF 990 that is old and I had already purchased refurbished 2 years ago got the 1903 update on Friday, but my HP X360 Envy laptop that I bought brand new in April of 2016 is still on V 1803. I never even got he update for 1809.

I mean no big rush or anything, but who knows. It often seems random.

All evidence over the years strongly suggests that it often is random, particularly after the very early cohorts have had the Feature Update applied and there have been no major issues.

There are untold millions of computers running Windows 10 which were never certified to do same by their OEMs.  Feature Updates are still applied to them as well, so random sampling techniques will pick them up along the way when upgrade cohorts are being formed, too.

But it's also clear that the Windows 10 upgrade installer has logic in it to prevent even updating to Windows 10 for certain hardware that has been identified as definitely incompatible.  I have an Asus laptop that will not go from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and the upgrade/update process reports it's because it uses an unsupported Intel chipset of some sort (I can't recall now what the specific Intel hardware was).   This sort of thing is also virtually certain to become part of the regular Feature Update installers, too, if it isn't already, as over time there will definitely be hardware that ages off of the ability to be updated and will have a terminal version of Windows 10 that it can run with.
