    Fetched 1903 using "Download and Install Now" and it took awhile. I suspect it takes a little less time for the people leaping from 1809 to 1903, compared to me going from 1803 to 1903.

    Got another device i'll update probably tomorrow, and I hope/suspect that device won't take 8 hours from clicking Download and Install Now to Finishing like the first one.

    All in all, D&IN beats blindly hitting "Check for Updates"
    My computer with 1803 is not even mentioning 1809 let alone 1903. 1803 got updated regularly but nothing further. I don't think it ever will update to 1903 automatically.

    There was at least one post that said you could do an inplace upgrade from an attached USB device if the computer was not connected to internet. I never tested but I did note comment.
    I think that was me - I upgraded no problem with it disconnected from internet. Not sure if it bypassed usb bug specifically.

    You still have to check for updates, automatically or manually, before you'll see 1903 offered. Only when Windows Update thinks your machine is ready for this will you have the choice to "D&IN"....

    You'd be surprised (I was) how MS decide which machines are offered it. My test machine (System Two below) is hardly 'cutting edge', being a low spec 2009 model. But (like both of you) it had 1803 running on it. Despite that the Features Update to 1903 appeared in Windows Update. 'Download and install now' worked without a hitch.


    ...8 hours from clicking Download and Install Now to Finishing...

    That time will include downloading about 3GB of install files. Depending on your download speed, a lot of that time may just have been to download 1903.

    1903 gave me the D&IN option 2 days ago and I did it without a problem. My neighbors' Dell Pavilion (my old beast) took forever to D&IN yesterday. I wonder if it had anything to do with the fact that it was Friday late afternoon and Everyone On The Planet was swamping the MS servers getting 1903.

    That's a really long download/install time... Maybe your internet wasn't working properly?

    Hi,
    I've mounted iso on 1709 that worked okay
    Fewer bugs than doing it from 1809

    Yeah, I saw D&IN, clicked it, it went into the check and then started on the process. So yeah, it's different from just clicking Check For Updates not knowing if there was a feature update ready.

    That time will include downloading about 3GB of install files. Depending on your download speed, a lot of that time may just have been to download 1903.
    The approximate times (rounding to the nearest 0/5) of various parts of my update process

    2:45pm: Check for and find the update
    3:10pm: Download succeeded, Started installing
    7:25pm: Install pending upon restart, go to a restart (wait 50 seconds for a Defender definition update to download/install)
    10:50pm: Install complete

    So, it was both sides of the install process that were slow, compared to the download part. On this computer, it takes around an hour to download/install the monthly 1803 updates. Whatever slowness was added by me using a browser during the first part of the process wasn't a lot considering it took 3 1/2 hours on the restart.

    Time-wise, the event viewer started logging about an hour before the install was completed. Doing stuff that probably has to happen in the background to complete an update.

    I guess it's possible the speed was sorta bottlenecked by other activity on the Wifi network. Although if watching a YouTube stream on one device slows down the other that much, it's something I haven't noticed before while using both devices for normal activity. But it also remained on certain percentages for long periods of time, so I can't tell you what was speed, and what was Windows having to make a bunch of changes to get from 1803 to 1903.

    So the long installation part of the process might rule out Friday Afternoon/Night surge in downloads and I haven't had a problem with WiFi on this with the current device (I switched to a new one last summer).

    But it seems to be operating smoothly. Was offered a NET update and a 1903 Adobe Update and everything.

    The only thing I have to be paranoid about with the other device (Laptop) involves the device driver fetching process post-update, but that wasn't a problem for the 1803 install or for my second 1709 install after I had to Fresh Start it in late 2017 due to a problem involving a wild Intel chipset update (10.1.1.38) and my device. Since last September, you can find random people laughing that there's an Intel System update in their queue dated 1968 and around that time, several updates downloaded successfully but didn't move farther on the laptop including a 10.1.1.38. But it seems like whatever wonky Intel System updates are installed on other devices don't end up messing up those people like my experience 18 months ago.. so.. who knows what things were installed in Dec 17 that aren't on the device now which could complicate things.

    Anyways.. the primary device is working and i'll get around to the secondary laptop probably later today and hopefully nothing breaks.

    Just an observation that years ago Fast and Skip Ahead updates usually meant some headache or two and was expected for the nature of the alpha/ beta offer. Today it seems the other way around. FU's seem to cause much more issues to the user. I haven't had any major issues in Skip Ahead for a long time. To be fair I have also been lucky with FU's as always used the Assistant as soon as the FU was available.

    I've noticed the Ransomeware controlled folders causes problems with Macrium Reflect 7 and VSS.

    You may want to look at this thread. May be no connection with your issues, but a long, ongoing discussion of 1903 and VSS errors.
