    This upgrade has failed miserably on both my home and pro hyper-v versions! It just refuses to install. I reverted and used registry edit to download install.ESD but the failed as well.

    I downloaded pro iso (from a member who has managed to create one) and tried to run setup.exe to upgrade and that failed as well.

    I clean installed it and had to reactivate it. Stuck with Home version though.
    That is odd. I have issues installing 14971 in Hyper-V, where it always crashes after copying files, when it is dosed to reboot, but upon activating fast ring, it always downloads 14986 and installs it without a hitch.

    To make my VMs I have been using my old Windows 7 Pro TechNet keys left over (I used the Ultimate keys for my machines when I actually ran 7) and for the most part 14971 accepts the Win 7 Pro keys and gives me a digital entitlement license for WinX.

    Were your VMs already activated?

    Cereberus, if you have a key to the Pro version, I believe you can do the "change key" bit and just plug in your Pro key. I know you're savvy enough to get to the "change key" bit, but I'll list the path for others who may benefit from it:

    Settings>Update & Security>Activation>Change Product Key.
    Good idea. I still have a slew of TechNet keys that are N / K based that I haven't even touched yet. Time to make more VMs.

    I am such a rube.

    Remember when I couldn't account for the used space on my second SSD?

    Yeah, this will make you laugh. So, default storage for Hyper-V .VHDs is on the Public folders. Which I moved on the host machine to that second SSD.

    The first several times I played with VMs on WinX I would change the default location to a drive with a lot more capacity. That time I did not, because I erroneously misread the location as being on the SYSTEM drive, aka my whopping big 960 GB SSD, not my much smaller 256 GB SSD. 🤣

    So, yeah, I did a complete reinstall for absolutely nothing....

    My Edge has google as default search engine.

    Just ran it to check and it totally crashed my system with 'critical_process_died'.

    Restarted comp and Edge runs again.

    Reinforces my use of Chrome!

    Sorry I did not make it clear. I have a pro vm which I have updated. I also ha e a home vm which I could not update as I could not get an iso. However, iso has just been released on Slow Ring so should be ok.

    Thanks to you anyway, my favourite Southern Belle 😍.
