    Installed from 0 to 100% in 30 minutes (30 minutes extra for downloading as my internet is from mobile hotspot) inside Hyper-V.

    - - - Updated - - -

    After update, it can't connect to internet anymore through Default Switch in Hyper-V. Have to create an external switch now !

    Hi folks

    downloading from UUPDUMP to a W10 current build (18363.535) running on a QEMU VM.

    Will install -- great having fast Internet -- download and creation of ISO -- approx 4 mins.

    Now for install

    Note the VM is hosted on a RAID 0 Array on the host 3 X 2.73 TB HDD's as an 8TB array .

    It's defined as using a single 80GB HDD -- I don't expect to get as good speed as those on Native SSD's but with the VirtIO windows drivers the VM will be on my machine nearly as good as a physical machine (assuming I can avoid hosing up the KVM/QEMU bridged networking !!!! --equiv to HYPER-V's external switch) --especially as the Host OS is running with 4X physical XEON's !!!.

    OK download done --- back to VM to install now

    Cheers

    First, stop your virtual machine.
    Navigate to the left pane and click Edit virtual machine settings.
    Click the Add button at the bottom of the Virtual Machine Settings page.
    A new window Add Hardware Wizard will open on your screen.
    Select New Hard Disk > SATA and click on Use an existing virtual machine.
    Use an existing virtual machine
    Now browse your .vmdk file and click the Finish button.
    I don't have any virtual machines but the last two insider updates always fails to install and rolls back to 19041. Does this workaround work for me too?

    Hi there @Dagen

    Try and use the iso from UUPDUMP -- download the script, extract and run it. Then run the setup.exe to either install from scratch or update.

    (I'd backup exiting system first of course -- Macrium is a good program for that purpose --the free edition is 100% bgood enough for taking windows system image backups).

    Cheers

    Be advised that this build, as with the previous build, breaks Windows desktop animation. So especially if you are using programs such as Wallpaper Engine, they now will not work.

    Hi folks

    This release still won't install (at least on my machine) under VMWare wks rel 15 -- but not an issue now for me any more as I've switched VM's to KVM/QEMU. Was using VMWare as a final test before ditching it. Installs perfectly on QEMU/KVM.

    14 Mins to install (upgrade) on a VM from the ISO created via UUPDUMP excluding the 4 Min download and iso create time

    Language working OK this time too !!!!!! --and no probs with Internet as I believe a previous poster had experiencedwhen using a VM.

    Multi-media playing e.g VLC works perfectly as well -- although the Host is good for that. Graphics (CAD-3D and photoshop all run without errors.


    C'mon Ms --this is getting TOO EASY --- We can't have Windows without bugs and defects -- what would those people working in I.T support have to do then !!!!!!!!!!!!

    I guess it's good for people who use AskWoody, Forbes and others who don't like Windows 10 and love to spread unnecessary fake news of Windows 10 updates.

    To resolve issue on VMWare or Parallels change hard disk type to SATA from SCSI, reboot and then install update.

    You can reassign the same virtual hdd when creating a new one on the VM settings, just select SATA instead of SCSI. Then delete the old one. Restart VM and update to 19541

    You can just change the hard disk type by shutting down vm then change disk type from scsi to SATA and boot up and upgrade, no need for converting or clean install.

    I'll have to look all that up when not so semi-braindead. You're a night owl, I crash by 9pm. I may be back to you for instructions or point me to something. I'd love to try it.

    There is no trick but you can probably change the hard disk type (assuming you have enough free disk space) by working with vdiskmanager. I have never done this however, nor even tried. Using Virtual Disk Manager
    Good luck.
    Thanks to all of you for this "velvet hammer", works like a charm. Added the SATA virtual HDD, attaching to existing .vmdx, deleted the SCSI virtual HDD, rebooted and updated! Voila!
