        You’ve probably seen the news that the release of 21H1 is getting closer. You know how I feel about the initial release of feature releases. I prefer

        You mention the change in lifecycle support, but you forgot to tell us what the change is….   🙂

          H1 update will switch to minor update while H2 will switch to major update.

          Meaning it just extends the support window for security patching.

        As always, since I automatically have drive images at the ready, I will be a “Seeker” on my desktop, and wait for the push on my NAS.  With the exception of blocking driver updates via Group Policy, my Windows 10 Pro installations are fully updated; no pause, no other restrictions.

        Create a fresh drive image before making system changes/Windows updates, in case you need to start over!

        +1  …. AND, I’m wondering IF some of us DISabled the Conexant Driver to get 20H2 AND had the Install RE-activate the same Driver, should we Disable it prior to 21H1 Install? Guessing it was a 1909 to 20H2 thing more than about an Upgrade within the 2004 framework….

        Susan, thanks for the reminder about 21H1.  Made me take my two 20H1 desktops to 20H2.  However, after completion of the update, I had a new desktop icon titled “Windows 10 update assistant”.  A quick search reveals it is an app that automatically installs the latest feature release.  Hmmm – the description of the app on MS site almost reads like it is intended to override the registry edit that prevents newer than the chosen Win10 release from being installed.  Maybe I am just paranoid, but has anyone else seen this?

          That’s totally normal and as a result of the Update now process from the Windows 10 iso site.  You can delete it once you are on 20H2.
