    ok, version is 1809.
    using the Version : 10.0.17763 which makes sense.as I would not have bothered with 1803 on a usb installer.

    and if you recreate media before 19xx is released your media will have build 17763.379 instead of the older one you have 17763.107.

    I keep copies of the different Media Creation Tools and name them appropriately. Each one will down load a specific version like 1803 or 1809 or eventually 19xx.

    Glad you got it sorted, sorry I didn't see space missing. in my post. Updated my records.

    I got notebook today, its nice looking. It had a reset 10 home os. Said was activated with a digital license. So I looked into logging in as me, and I was able to do all that and now it is linked to me with a digital account and activated.
    So I am currently updating home OS lots of pending installs.

    Is there a way to just force the 1809 update? well it just found the cumulative 1809 update and then I had told it to install prior updates and it said it cant because others are in progress, so this could take a while.

    ok, I think its done updating. And the seller apparently already updated this to 1809 cause thats what its running. His ad showed it running 1703

    Cool. I would still clean install but that is just me.

    I saw you got your instructions on creating a dual boot. Sounds like you will be busy.

    its working great. I bought this on ebay from a pawn shop in Connecticut for 500$. I plan to put the wd black nvme 500 gb in it maybe soon. it also has backlight keyboard FN + F4 or + F3 to adjust, but does not seem to have multicolor choices on the keyboard.

    If it is a business computer I wouldn't expect colours.

    I would head to vendor site and see if they have software or drivers for colour. Depending exactly what reset used to reinstall Windows that driver / software could be missing. I have an HP4440. Clean install requires me to get Hotkey Button driver.

    Sounds nice. Hope it treats you very well.
