      Hi’

      I used the official download windows site to download the creation tool and create an install pendrive for 1903.

      After trying to update my old laptop from 1803 (17164.648), it failed on the external drive problem. (I should have remembered – Duh!)

      Then I copied the contents to the hard drive and the update completed. Took a time but was successful.

      I ended up with 18362.30, and ran windows update where I was offered KB4497936,getting me to 18362.113. Odd as when I checked the Windows support site, that KB wasn’t mentioned. A little digging revealed that I now had Insider Preview version.

      Any ideas how that happened, and more importantly how do I get the correct full version?

      You would be best served to wait until 1903 is offered to your PC through Windows Update.

      We are seeing some strange behavior, like the deferral settings disappearing (might be characteristic of Insider builds, b/c they don’t have deferrals). It wouldn’t be the first time MS has issued an Insider Preview as a public release. I can recall it happening to me at least once before with early install.

        Thanks PKCano,

        I checked the ability to revert to previous version and it seemed to be there, but I wondered if I downloaded the latest full update (KB4503293) whether it would install – it’s only 200MB or so.

        I checked Group Policy, Windows Update for Business, they had been disabled but accepted reenabling.

        Installation completed and rebooted. Now have 18362.175.

        Hmmm.

          Did you lose the deferral settings in the GUI (Settings app)?

            Yes, they had been blanked out; I simply reentered them.

            So, sorry, I didn’t look to see if they were blanked out in Settings.

      Use Microsoft s Upgrade assistant. I am not sure what the web site is but you can google it.

      I used the official download windows site to download the creation tool and create an install pendrive for 1903.

      I did *exactly* the same as you and also got 18362.30. A ‘Check for updates’ installed KB4497936 – like you – on 21st May. A subsequent ‘Check for updates’ yesterday installed KB4503293, taking the build up to 18362.175:

      1903-updated1

      Perhaps do a manual ‘Check for updates’?

      Hope this helps…

      EDIT: Oops… OP beat me to it. Glad it updated OK.
