        I decided to upgrade my 1803 W10 Pro to 1903 with an in place upgrade from an ISO I though was a 1903 ISO.
        dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:F:\sources\boot.wim /index:1

        Index : 1
        Name : Microsoft Windows PE (x64)
        Description : Microsoft Windows PE (x64)
        Size : 1,703,884,476 bytes
        WIM Bootable : No
        Architecture : x64
        Hal : <undefined>
        Version : 10.0.18362
        ServicePack Build : 418
        ServicePack Level : 0

        After about 30 minutes I ended up with 10.0.18363.418 version 1909.
        I guess I should have suspected this was what I was gonna get. Oh well
        I had to reset my system fonts with a reg file, not unusual recently..
        I do not have the option now to disable the Upgrade Medic service
        No problems yet
        Belarc Advisor reports I am missing
        Critical Microsoft security update (KB4524569)
        Critical Microsoft security update (KB4524570)

        Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

        you got a 1909 ISO instead of a 1903 ISO. the Win10 Media Creation tool downloads 1909 ESDs/ISOs lately.

        if you truly wanted a 1903 ISO rather than the 1909 version, use the latest version of the Windows ISO downloader tool from site instead.

        Or use the .bat file mentioned in Woody’s latest ComputerWorld article.

        Sorry for the late reply folks. As I said I BELIEVED (and still do) that it was a 1903 iso, hard to check now.
