    I then opened the Local Group Policy Editor. I enabled the target feature update version to Windows 10, Version 21H1.
    As long as the Product is set for Windows 10, then it should be safe to set the Version as 24H2 (probably the last version before end of support). That way you should continue to get all the new Windows 10 Feature Updates until support ends on October 14, 2025.

    Are you trying 24H2 as your Target Feature update?
    I'm trying 25H2 [but I do not think there will be one]. I set this up only a couple of days ago when I got a startup interruption similar to the OP's.
    The tutorial and other threads keep referring to setting it to 22H2 but it seems easier to set it once to a later Version and have done with it.

    On my laptop I had the screen or a window to switch to Windows 11 but there was an option to stay on Windows 10 and since then I no longer have the Windows 11 screen. It's in Windows update the option to install windows 11 whenever I want.

    I'm not trying anything. No need, all my Win10 machines are unsupported devices for 11 and won't get offered 11 anyway
    The few supported devices I have are already running 11, and have been since it was first released.

    I'm not expecting a Win10 25H2, it wouldn't make sense as that would have to be released around the same time as 10 reaches EoL. I'm confident there will be a 24H2 though, and that it will be the last feature update for 10.

    I had that screen a few months ago and dismissed it like you did.
    It re-appeared a few days ago and I was able to dismiss it again.
    When you tell Windows not to do something, it seems to hear "yet".

    This morning my laptop came up with a Windows 11 install screen.
    I'm on Windows 10 and don't want Windows 11.
    The first screen looks like this.

    The next one looks like this.
    Attachment 389147
    There is no option to opt out.
    How do I get past this without having to upgrade and then having to revert back to Windows 10?
    Thanks
    I got something like that a few weeks ago. My only option was to hit the computer restart button. After that the computer booted normally. However, to avoid seeing that again I think I went into the Windows update settings and selected to stay with Windows 10.

    I plan to update this computer to Windows 11 sometime later this year but when I am ready not when Microsoft says to.

    Not 22H2?

    Ok, I just changed it to 22H2.
    I also turned Windows Updates back on. The PTSD has settled down.
    I also made an Image backup on an external drive.
    I used the image backup that comes with Windows 10, but I may put Macrium on this machine and do it with that instead.
    I donít trust Microsoft.

    Youíve been very helpful Denis, thank you.

    MS told us to stop using it about six years ago.
    Their own system imaging has always been an unreliable utility. People have sometimes experienced, just for example, it being unable to recognise its own images when they've tried to restore them.

    Several people have said that AOMEI Backupper Standard Edition - Free Backup Software for Windows is very easy to use.
    Macrium is very popular in this forum - as you'll see in my ditty, the forum has tutorials about Macrium.
    I've been using Acronis TI for over a decade and see no reason to change.

    Ok, I got the trial version of AOMEI and did a system image backup.
    You've been a great help Denis, thanks!
