        Microsoft keeps throwing up (phrase intended) blocks to upgrading Win10 to version 2004. Mary Jo Foley posted a report yesterday about Microsoft clawi

        So if we’re building a brand new system from scratch (or having such a system built for us by a local very reliable vendor) which has NEVER seen an installation of Windows, would it be ok to install 2004 instead of 1909 at this point, provided that all of the latest hardware drivers are on hand?

        BTW, all of the hardware has been manufactured/released within the last year.

          Have you sent the list of hardware/drivers to Microsoft asking for compatibility ? /s

          There in no guarantee 2004 will install at all or without problems…even on the latest and greatest hardware.

        I, for one, am glad that MS is “blocking” the 2004 upgrade on some devices… especially when they KNOW there is a known problem(s).  If the feature upgrade isn’t working, that is the least MS should do. A working upgrade would be even better!

        Installed all of the June updates, and wushowhide is not working for me on Win 10 home 1909. I hid the updates that I did not prefer and they installed anyway. The new Edge installed, so far no issues and a bunch of HP updates. At this point the best way to handle updates, is to pause, which have done so now until 8/15/20 in order to assure defcon acceptable. At that time I’m sure the updates correct themselves or provide an update to one that not working properly.  I do miss Win 7 and the total control I had over the updates.

        Also, no featured updates were noted, for the Win 2004 and also did NOT check for updates. I let the computer do it by itself since that pause from last month expired

        So far so good, no issues, thanks for listening.

          Wushowhide worked if you hid the updates.

          What you didn’t do was clear the Windows Update queue after the hiding. If the updates are still showing in Windows Update, they will install even if you think you have hidden them. The procedure to clear the queue (so they no longer appear in the Update list) is in AKB2000013. Or you can just wait until Windows Update checks for updates on it’s own the next time after you have hidden the patches and they should be gone from the queue.

            I checked and they installed, and apologize for misuderstanding on my part. So many years with a comfort with Win 7! understanding correctly. So the computer pause was expired and the computer started to check on it’s own. I ran the wushowhide and they were apparently hidden, but installed anyway. Did not clear the cache properly. Right now the laptop is paused until 8/15/20. Understandably did not clear the cache! For now I have the following updates installed:

            HP Development Company LP System 7.0.16.1

            2020-06 KB4561600 Flash Player

            2020-06 KB4560960 Win 10 Update

            Presuming that all were needed, will move on till next month and be sure to clear cache!

        I’m waiting for the next reason that Windows 10.2004 update gets blocked: hardware,  drivers, unapproved software, insufficient memory, uninstalled updates, too many peripherals, features off, features removed, software conflicts, insufficient hard drive space, anti-virus conflicts, and thunderstorms.

        I might have the wrong impression about 2004, but from what I have been seeing (with the corner of my eye) written here about it, and for quite a while now, I can’t help wondering if, for the users of Win 10, not being able to install this update is really such a bad thing. Just saying.

        The fact that its still blocked and not available to everyone is proof that Feature updates should be reduced to 1

        Just someone who don't want Windows to mess with its computer.

          I agree.

          By the time 2004 is available for everyone it’ll be time for MS to release 2009 (or 2010 or 2011….).

          Then, rinse and repeat.
