    1809 Update Queries


    For those who updated please advise:
    1. Does the Classic Shell v4.3.1 still work as some have suggested? If not what version of Open Shell is most suitable?
    2. Does the update create another recovery partition?
    3. Can anyone running MS Money confirm it still works in this update?

    I can answer #2: No, there is not an additional partition created on the boot drive. My drive had 2 partitions before the 1809 upgrade and it still has 2.

    It created another recovery partition on mine. Chopped off a small chunk of the OS partition and made a new one adjacent to the OS. Original was partition 1. Now is partition 5.

    Tomcat:

    Do you have any idea why that happened on your PC?

    I don't notice any changes in Disk Management on mine.

    I'm just pondering what's behind these apparent variations from one user to another, not just in Disk Management.

    Has this level of variation been standard for these semi-annual major upgrades? Or is this new behavior?

    Do you just chalk it up as arbitrary and inexplicable and move on?

    I'm not having any issues, but have noticed that my previous regedits had to be re-applied. To be expected, I guess, but obviously the upgrade has not been a wholesale registry replacement.

    About 6 months ago, I completely wiped my SSD down to bare 0's. Did a complete clean install of 1803. The first 4 partitions I show are the result of that bare-bones clean install. Guess 1809 wanted one all it's own! No other explanation I can come up with.

    Odd, my UEFI machine also had a clean install of 1803, but the update to 1809 left the partitions exactly as they were created by 1803.

    I did it via an ISO made from MCT. You?

    I also used MCT to update my production desktop yesterday, and wound up with an "extra" WinRE partition following after the OS partition, to wit:

    Looks like it was scavenged from the OS partition itself, because my unallocated, overprovisioning space is apparently unchanged. What gives here?
    Thanks,
    --Ed--

    PS: Upon closer examination, looks like 1809 needs 498MB or larger for the WinRE partition. Those machines, like mine, with "only" 450 in the previous WinRE partition may find a new, bigger replacement WinRE partition on their boot/sys drives after the upgrade. Comments?

    Doesn't look that way on my machine, Ed.

    It's a GPT SSD that I updated via Windows Update.

    I don't see any changes in partitioning from 1803 to 1809.

    1809, per Disk Management, 3 partitions shown:

    Recovery partition: simple, basic, NTFS, 450 MB, with 53 free. I'm not sure the free amount was 53 on 1803, but the 450 is unchanged. This partition is shown as "OEM" in WDM, even though it's a self built machine. I assume that's normal?

    Disk 0, partition 2: simple, basic, no entry for File System, 100 mb, with 100 mb free

    C; simple, basic, NTFS, 119 GB capacity, 87 free;

    If I look in Macrium, it's slightly different than Disk Management, but the same as it was on 1803.

    same C, same Recovery, plus these 2; total of 4:

    No name, FAT 32, LBA Primary, 100 MB capacity, with 25.8 occupied; this appears to be the EFI partition

    Unformatted Primary; 16 mb capacity, all of it used.
