      I apologize if this has been asked elsewhere, but I was just wondering about something.  I’m still on Win10 v1709.  Home version, never bothered to attempt to defer updates since it would have just been one more headache that I felt I didn’t need.  But, from my understanding, 1803 should have hit me by now.  Only, it hasn’t.  Checked my HDD type and brand to make sure, since I’d read that MS was apparently blocking the distribution of 1803 to people with certain HDD’s, and that doesn’t appear to be it.  I’m more than willing to just wait it out and see what happens, but I am a bit curious as to why I’ve not seen 1803 show up for me yet.  System specs if that matters:

      Win10 Home v1709

      Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050

      Intel Core i5 7400 @3.00GHz

      Hope that’s all necessary info.  And I do apologize if I posted this in the wrong place.

      Supposedly, Microsoft is rolling 1803 out selectively instead of all at once (except where is is being forced on users).

      Be patient. Perhaps you will have fewer problems when it does arrive.

        Thanks for letting me know.  I’m not itching to get the update per se… was just curious as to why it hadn’t even been offered to me as of yet.  I’m paitent, so I can wait 😛

      still need more specs like name (aka. system manufacturer) & model number (aka. system model) of computer, Mcmacladdie.
      run either msinfo32.exe or dxdiag.exe to gather these kinds of info.

        My computer is an HP Pavilion Desktop 570-p0xx, according to dxdiag.

        As an addendum, I checked my father’s laptop to see if he’d gotten the 1803 update yet, and it hasn’t either.  Don’t know the exact specs on that, though.  It’s a bit older than this desktop.

      Microsoft rolls out Windows 10 feature updates in waves. First, they go with PCs they are pretty sure will work. Telemetry data is gathered on the installs and adjustments are made to the installation procedure and/or patches for Windows are developed. Then another wave is released and the process is repeated. Unless you absolutely want a feature update as soon as possible, I believe you’ll have a better experience waiting until Windows Update offers the update to you.
