    Key prompt comes first, if you click "I don't have one" the next screen asks what version to install. If you enter a key, you never see the selection screen, the key entered makes the selection.

    Anybody having blue tooth issues after the creators update?

    Finding my Microsoft Bluetooth Arch Mouse won't connect. That is, Windows doesn't see it.

    Fixed. Had to cycle to connect button a few times. Shouldn't have had to do that but...

    I did the upgrade on my old HP desktop and it broke Home Networking. and it removed the file explorer icon on my taskbar and it will not let me pin it back.

    I think my general point was made. Didn't realize I had to write step per step procedure down. I thought that was understood

    Thank you

In the past I just added a PID.txt file with the Pro generic key in it. That overrides auto key detection and installs Pro. I'll likely keep doing it anyway as it speeds things up. No key prompt or having to select Pro from the menu.
    It occurs to me that for people like you who know what they're doing, this is good.
    But for a user who knows less, they have more opportunities to pick the wrong version and find it doesn't activate because, for instance, they picked Pro when they should have picked Home.

    it also chooses to install the RealTek audio driver by default so if you're not happy with that you have to go through the routine of getting rid of it - not too easy for beginners...

    Or when you tell the system you have no key because you already have a digital license, but somehow that digital license became home when you've always had Pro. Stuff happens.

    Anyway this was a past experience and I certainly know what I'm doing. It took a call to MS tech support to sort out the issue. Now instead of taking chances I just use a generic key and no issues. Simple. Sure I could've let the digital license take over but I chose my method.

    No one says the other way doesn't work. I simply did it as an experiment... and posted as an FYI

    FINGERPRINT reader is broken. This worked fine in 1607. Now with 1703 it is not available on this PC. Tell me I can fix this please. and of course how to. It was an upgrade install. Validity FP sensor is still alive and well in device manager. Why won't Creator allow me to use it??

    I have spent hours trying to find an answer to this question regarding the new update. I want to do a clean install of the Creators update. If I download the latest Windows 10 media creation tool, will this give me the new Creators update ISO? Thanks in advance.
