    I've received the 1903 update twice over the standard Update system, (on RP), recently, No issues on the original or the clean install on a new main system - I use many USB devices and SD Card is my normal transfer method between PC and Cameras

    The only warning is during upgrade to 1903, remove all external storage before upgrading. Microsoft is not disabling external storage options. As for Y2k, Apples to Oranges and really did not become a worry until 12/31/2000.

    In fact, removing all non-essential external devices has always been a recommended fix for upgrade issues, it's not new advice just for 1903.

    Ah, that. I did not equate it to what Robert11 posted. Understand now, thanks.

    And, lots of hints for disabling the automatic backup that MS includes with W10.
    Have to ask on this one too, what automatic backup? I read and follow these forums every day and I don't remember this one either. I'm getting older and my memory isn't as good as it was but ...

    I always update my systems with a USB installation flash drive created by the Media Creation Tool. I remove the drive as soon as the installation does the first reboot. When I first tried this method with the first release of Windows 10 in 2015, I had left the flash drive in until completion of the install. As I recall I ended up with some strange results so I now pull the drive as soon as the install no longer needs it.

    For the first release in 2015 I got the upgrade to 10 via the 'Get Windows 10' (GWX) app that was delivered as an update to W7/8 PCs.

    All subsequent upgrades I have done manually by using the media created by the MCT. I prefer to make the ISO rather than the USB then mount the ISO and run Setup from the virtual DVD. I do this partly because it avoids having to remember to remove the USB at first reboot, but also because it is easy to make a USB from the ISO should I need one, so the ISO is the best of both worlds.

    Why are people discussing having to remove the USB flash drive during a clean installation and when exactly do they remove it?
    I use the Media Creation Tool to create a bootable USB. When Ive clean installed Ive always waited until the installation has completely finished and Im at the Windows desktop. Then I remove the Windows 10 USB flash drive. Ive never had any issues at all?

    Older systems, particularly Legacy ones, may well have the USB before the HDD in the boot order by default. On such a system you have to remove the USB the first time the upgrade says it is about to restart. If you leave it in, then you risk booting the USB to do a clean install, instead of booting from the HDD to continue the upgrade.

    Right I see ..you're talking about legacy systems and doing an Upgrade. I thought you were talking about a clean install
