        Have Windows 64bit Pro.
        Installed 20H1 with MS help August 2020
        Many problems since including with March update messing up Kyocera printers.
        20H1 foisted on me when I thought I’d prevented it.
        Had BSOD over over Hauppage card. Settled.
        Uninstalling some updates filed.
        Have now lost Sound device driver and therefore sound.

        Suspect best to download files and need good instructions for 20H2.
        Were do I get them?

        Thanks

        The official Microsoft download page is Download Windows 10 (microsoft.com). You get to choose several methods. You can use the Media Creation Tool to update the system or create installation media. I’d create the media, either a USB drive or ISO file, and use that to install the upgrade. Do NOT boot from the media. Just run setup.exe from with your current Windows 10 installation. With the media, you can try multiple times after you resolve any problems you encounter.

        As with any major update, do an image backup of your system before beginning the upgrade process. If you don’t do an image backup at least backup any data that is important to you and make sure you have installation media for all your programs.
