    ..experience has taught regulars here that manually upgrading using the iso is the most reliable way of upgrading.
    It's certainly my preferred method. Worked well for all the upgrades up to and including this one.

    Most of the issues reported so far are relatively minor so far...
    I've only found two so far. The first isn't an issue, as such. It's a feature I don't really want.
    on a restart Fall Creators Update reopens apps from before

    The only real bug I've found is in the old version of Defender - so not really much of an issue there either.

    I'm sticking with FCU on my main machine, seems a lot more stable than any previous upgrade was in it's first week.

    I'm with you on this.

    I have no feedback since I have no intention of being an early upgrader!
    I refused the spring update. I have no intention of moving to the fall update.

    These really aren't updates. They are major upgrades, almost like moving from XP to 7, or 7 to 10.

    I never do a major upgrade. I leave the original OS in place.
    I'll get the next OS on my next computer, thank you.
    It's just safer (no compatibility issues), and more reliable.

    For me the computer is a tool, not a baby to be nursed.
    I want it to "just work". I don't want to treat it and maintain it and fuss over it.
    Others may have a different view, but I just don't even want to know that there's an OS in the box.
    I just want it to work. All of these "updates" seem to produce problems while offering nearly no value.

    Only issue I had was Activation issue in relation to my Windows 10 Home UEFI key in Bios, was a pain getting PC back to Pro, but with the Help with Microsoft Answer Tech chat/remote assistance, finally got it reactivated on Pro, only took from 1p.m. eastern til 3p.m. eastern on October 17th to get it fully sorted.

    I don't think that has to do with my 3rd party antivirus i'm using, just with the stupid UEFI key in bios, that everytime I do clean install picks that up and then won't activate lol.

    Thought I am willing to use Defender if I'll have less problems in the coming weeks with cumulative updates

    Just don't wanna go thru that activation issue again, almost was like gonna say forget it, and just go purchase a new Pro copy
    Windows 10 OEM Embedded key? My laptop has a Windows 8.0 Core OEM embedded key. My install media has stopped reading it since the Creators Update. I now get prompted to enter a key, which is fine by me. Even when the key was read and used, that PC always activated fine with 10 Home. What I did in the past was add a PID.txt file with the pro generic key in it. The 3V66T key. That bypasses read the OEM key and forces a Pro install. No prompt to enter a key and no having to select an Edition to install. It just installs Pro by default.

    Actually, you do not need key. Create a file ei.cfg with just following

    [EditionID]
    Professional
    [Channel]
    Retail

    and put in sources folder on installation drive.

    If you just put following in ei.cfg, it allows you to select version during install.

    That's likely a better option. For a long while I was only ever installing the one version Pro. So the PID.txt worked for me and saved me one extra mouse click lol. Not an issue now, my OEM key is ignored.

    Everything went smooth for me, but after some time a have found some small issues like for example HP printer software was not working (needed reinstall), Origin client was not working (needed Visual C++ 2015 repair), some games were not able to start due to broken EasyAntiCheat sofware, graphics driver needed reinstall etc.
    Apart from that, no major issues.

    Just did my only upgrade. Ran setup.exe from the mounted ISO. No issues that I know about. Only been running it for about an hour. Just e-mail and internet so far. And upgraded Pro to Pro for Workstations.

    Hi,
    Yeah I checked for updates and it showed up and started downloading....
    Thought it would do like the other creators update and just show a link... nope
    I had to switch my update setting to business and pause the fall creators... for 35 days until 10 recognizes the update setting changes :/

    Well, it's fair to remember too that people here are generally enthusiasts. As enthusiasts we often 1). overclock and modify hardware, 2) modify the registry, 3) Install things that are beta, or insider, etc, 4). install tools like replacement start menus and such.

    All of the above complicate our setups. So often times things we see, aren't the same things average joe's see during the upgrade process. So, I wouldn't necessarily expect Microsoft testing/engineering to test the fringe cases we often present here.
