    HP Image recovery windows 10 1607 Build


    Hi , I have updated my Windows 10 build from 1607 to 1703 ( creator update ) , before doing this I have made USB drive having HP Image recovery to make fresh installation incase any error comes up in the future , but now I find that HP recovery image program writes : Image recovery function is Disabled due to updating windows version !

    So what should I do to be enable this function in the future incase I need to make fresh Image installation ?!!

    and Can I extend period that I can make roll back to my previous 1607 build I know it's allowed withing 10 days from the update ( I mean can't I make it forever ? ) Thank you !

    I haven't found that the 10 day period can be changed. Also involved is the Version and Build of the original install of Win10, some file changes/updates may mess up the factory restore.

    You need a new recovery manager after the Creators Update.

    Apparently the How-To Geek found a way to do it (at least, it worked in 1511). basically you take a copy of the files needed and store them to put back later. You have to be quick though, you need to copy them before Windows automatically deletes them.

    Warning: This process worked for us with Windows 10 build 1511. It’s not officially supported, and it’s possible this won’t work in future builds of Windows 10.

    Sorry, I don't have an HP I can test it on. It may need a restart to take effect. Use 'Restart' from the start menu's power button and see if that works (don't use 'Shut down', that will not do a full start up from cold if fast startup is enabled).

    The How-To Geek article did say "Itís not officially supported, and itís possible this wonít work in future builds of Windows 10". I'm afraid I cannot say if it will work or not. What I can say is that if the option to roll back is removed from the Settings app after ten days, there's another place you can find it that doesn't get removed.

    Go to Settings > Update & security > Recovery and use the Advanced Start-up. Then, when it has rebooted to the Advanced Start-up choose Troubleshoot, then Advanced options, here you will find a 'Go back to previous build'. My system still shows that option four months after the upgrade to Creators Update (not having kept the files, I cannot test it though).
