    Yes, I know. What you need to do is delete all the partitions until you have one very large partition, you can format it, or split it into more than one partition (one for Windows and one for Data). Once that's done, choose the partition you want to use and start the install; Windows will inform you it will need to use some of your hard drive for itself. When you're through, you will have your main partition (and a second one if you chose to do that) and a couple Windows has added.
    It will be obsolete in a few days when I set new install and all drivers and programs. I just did a clean install of 107 and it immediately updated to 134 and quite a few drivers. Works good for now. There's only one problem, it installed in legacy BIOS mode instead of UEFI but that I can fix easily. Going to need couple of days to get everything in order, activate with MS account, enroll in Insider Skippy etc.

    Wow, Spectre was not even discussed when 1709 was released. That sure is some fancy foresight there.
    If you read my response to the question then you will find 1709 was the incumbent W10 when Spectre patches were released. When 1803(4) arrived it was mostly over bar the waiting. So yeah, 1709 didn’t get an updated MCT because it would have been slap in the middle of the AV fuddle with illegal process hooking that the Meltdown fix (Spectre variant 3) didn’t play nicely with.

    I just checked a client computer and ran WU and it did not show up. Guess they are going to meter it out this time.

    Did you already have 1809 on those?

    Sorry...

    I just can't fathom MS taking all this time to redo 1809 with lingering bugs to correct.
    What's another few days?

    Bad business decision on their part.

    Yes, you have to draw the line on how many fixes can be cleared before release but their "reputation" is hanging on this being done right.

    So, I ask all of you - go with 1809 as it is now, or wait?

    Perhaps a poll?

    End of my mini-rant...

    I have always had, since day 1 of Windows 10, my branch readiness as 'Semi-Annual Channel (Targeted)' with 0 deffered days.
    For the first time, yesterday I changed it to 'Semi-Annual Channel (Targeted)', 30 days.

    Does that answer your question, about my opinion?
