    Updated to Windows 10 1903


    Hi

    I updated my HP notebook to Windows 10 1903 yesterday and I must say I am impressed, the update went very smooth and finished without issues... Only thing I was not keen on was the new very light desktop, so I changed that back to the old darker one...

    I have updated this since version 15** and up until the last update and this one always had an issue with one HP driver which I needed to fix, but the last two have gone perfect.. although it did take 4 hours from start to finish

    Glad it went well. Typically a 'planned' upgrade using e.g. an iso file without accepting updates as part of the procedure is faster- the updates will occur later.

    Bear in mind that even your internet speed can be a factor- with updates, you could be downloading, say, 7Gb..

    Agreed, use the ISO file method.

    Every time you update you`re gonna have to some recustomizing, it`s totally normal and par for the course

    Yes, the windows update method is slow, by a factor of at least two compares to the ISO method on any given machine. That's what I found here (with an explanation of why that may be the case).


    How long does the 1903 upgrade take using Windows Update?

    Thanks for the replies..

    I did not know that :) I always use the WU method, then again I do plan for it and expect up to 4 hours based on past feature updates .. All seems to be working well so far.. :)

    During the update it did stick on 27% for about 30 mins and I started to worry lol.. but did a search and it seems the "27%" thing is common.. once it started again it went fairly quick..

    I always have my daily Macrium Reflect back up if I needed it :)

    Next update, download the ISO file then open it with windows explorer and click setup, it`s that simple.

    Then keep the ISO file and the MCT for that particular ISO in the same folder.

    The Windows Update method is optimised to minimise the download size at the expense of more processing. When it apparently 'hangs' Task Manager will show a lot of CPU processing is taking place. See the link I gave earlier for more on this.

    All methods end up with the same result, a fully upgraded system. The only real difference with the windows update method (apart from the speed) is that the feature update will be recorded in Update History.
