  • Another report of Win10 Creators Update (1703) users getting pushed to Fall Creators Update (1709), even with defer updates set

    If you’re using Win10 1703, and you want to wait a bit to move to 1709, there may be a problem.

    Yesterday, Microsoft announced that 1709 is “fully available for all compatible devices running Windows 10 worldwide!” (their exclamation point, not mine). Gregg Keizer has the details.

    What I’m hearing – and can’t yet confirm – is that 1703 PCs with “feature update deferral” set to 365 days are getting pushed onto 1709.

    UPDATE: Here’s another report of a “hard” bug in 1709:

    Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is hit by a new bug that prevents installation, especially for devices with Intel’s X299 chipset and an NVMe SSD drive.
