    Exactly, but how many laptops have that extra hard drive internally (very few, if any, are left), and does John Q. Public know or understand what an external hard drive is?

    In fact, how many Desktops will have that extra internal hard drive (very few, if any), and does John Q. Public know or understand what an external hard drive is? Does he/she even know how to add an internal hard drive?

    Seems to me that both Microsoft and OEMs have just received their wakeup call . . . Are they gonna listen to or ignore it?
    Doesn't need to be a separate drive. It can just be a separate partition.

    Unless I'm reading your picture wrong, you're trying to install on a USB Flash Drive.

    Hi there

    I'm trying to install to internal SSD !!!!!!

    Anyway I'll use a Linux Live distro to clear / re-format internal SSD and then boot from MCT again and have another go with clean install -- want that so when 1809 does re-appear I can upgrade from a known prior release).

    Something is really screwy with these installs -- MS should have tested this a bit better. !!!

    Just saw the news, thanks to a nice piece from Kari at our Win10.Guru site: Windows 10 v.1809 and Windows Server 2019 pulled back. I'm really sorry to learn that the issues and problems are widespread enough to cause MS to withdraw the Win10 and WinServ19 releases from circulation, pending fixes. This is not good for anyone concerned or involved, especially MS itself. I feel lucky that all four of the upgrades I have done not only succeeded but show no signs of the data loss or networking issues so widely reported. It will be interesting to see how long it takes for MS to get through the "all hands on deck" maneuvers no doubt occurring in Redmond and elsewhere this weekend, and to issue a followup release. Methinks the next build number will be 17763.xx if not 17763.yyy!

    A few insiders actually reported this to Microsoft, but they didn't listen. Or maybe they did, but took the chance to release it anyway…
    Indeed they did report it.

    Microsoft has to take responsibility for their own actions or lack there of.

    Hi,

    Hi folks

    Re-install of 1803 OK after the re-format of my internal SSD - something obviously hosed with all that WindowstoGO stuff I was messing about with.

    However is there some conspiracy theory going on here -- It's coming up to that hideous event they have in USA known as "Black Friday" -- hopefully Europe won't fall for it in the same way as in previous years - but it's huge I believe in USA -- so perhaps Ms employees want a bit of extra overtime payments -- what better than fixing a major release gaffe over a Sat and Sun (usually "Gold time" payments !!).

    Just my cynical nature folks --I'm really sure there are loads of hardworking people at Ms -- my experience over a long time in I.T and Engineering -- loads of time in Oil Biz for example is that things go rapidly down hill when you get Non technical management having to take Technical decisions.

    Cheers

    @RingTailCoon

    Thanks, could you do a step-by-step thingy? Bit overwhelming for me now... :O
    You’re welcome,
    I understand, but it would be prohibitive because of length to try and do that in this thread instead, I’ll try to lay out the steps better.

    Go to: Windows Defender Application Guard (AppGuard) and follow the steps there.
    The article covers everything from enabling AppGuard to working with grpeditor. If, as the article suggests AppGuard is grayed out or unavailable you may still be able to use grpeditor to turn off organizational warnings, the problem is you’d have to find the setting to do that.

    Instead of switching from a tab to the AppGuard app to follow the instructions you may find it easier to either copy/paste the article into your word processor and print out the article or use Firefox’s new screenshot tool to save and print an image of the article.

    I have found out more info about Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) since my last posting.

    It seems ATP is a subscription service that uses the cloud.
    When you’re on the ATP page and you click on the free trial link (Want to experience Windows Defender ATP? Sign up for a free trial.)
    You’re taken to a page to sign-up and MS gives you a link to dowload the app. The free trial is for 60days after which you will be notified as to the billing procedures. I’ve seen cost of $84USD annually, I’ve also seen where it’s not that good but you may be able to use the free trial to stop the warnings. I’m not sure whether or not the warnings will return when the trial is over.

    If you need to explore this further I will be glad to help but please, create a new thread in the Antivirus, Firewalls and System Security Forum and post back a link for me to follow.

    Thanks.

    Have not had this problem for quite a while. System restart, Clean up system files does not remove it and manual delete gets this message. Properties states 0 Files, 7 Folders.
    When this happens, I have found it usually helps to make Windows "see" Windows.old by first running dir C:\.

    so much for insiders finding problems with the prebuilds
    They were found and reported to The Hub. The party responsible for this is Microsoft and Microsoft Alone. The Insider's do a great job and it is not their fault that MS does not take time to read what was posted in the hub as I said before.

    Lol
    My background is similar to yours. Some years ago i was approached by an agent representing MS (UK) for an interview as a Contract Test Analyst. The daily rate was 60% of what I eventually got from another organisation.

    Naturally I declined it and presumably a cheaper "bod" filled the slot. Now this might sound arrogant and I'm not saying that I was the greatest TA on the planet, BUT there's an old saying that goes "pay peanuts, get monkeys" Maybe some of those monkeys tested this release?
