    My infamous Acer 32 gig max hard drive got 1903 offered up to it.  I did not attach an external USB hard drive, rather I left the internal drive and the SSD drive in it.  It gave me the “I don’t have enough room” and after I cleaned up the C drive a bit it saw both the C drive and the SSD drive and was supposedly going to use that for it’s needs to install the operating system.

    So I let it go for it… and….. and…. and…

    Once again once it kicked a reboot it gave the message that it couldn’t find the mounted drive and would not finish the upgrade to 1903.

    Dear Microsoft:  You should have never let OEMs sell this configuration.  You should never let OEMs sell a computer that can’t get feature updates without extreme actions on the part of the user.
