    Rolled back from 1703 to 1607, but now I want it back...


    The other day I got 1703 pushed to me through Windows Update, but upon successful install experienced the Broadcom issue. Semi panicking I rolled back to 1607. Now that I know how to deal with this issue, I want to give 1703 another shot. Just how can I get it back? "1703 Feature update" hasn't shown up in WU since. Is a manual upgrade my only option? Thanks!

    Follow this tutorial, using Step 4 method of downloading 1703 ISO and mounting. You can speed up the upgrade by postponing fetching Windows Updates until after successful upgrade. This will also create a Windows.old folder with your 1607 version, ready to rollback, should you change your mind within 10 days. Good Luck

    Is there a benefit of doing it this way over just using the Update Assistant?

    With this method, you'll have a copy to use in future, should something need repairing or resetting. Simply put it on a usb or just keep the file on your computer or an ext HDD for easy retrieval.

    It has always been my preferred method. I use the MCT to make the bootable USB media, then I can use that to upgrade as many machines as I like, or boot from it to do a clean install should it be needed.
