    Both of mine are still showing the May expiration date as before this update.

    Insider level greyed out


    I did a clean install of this build but now my insider level is greyed. Signed in with a Microsoft account, restarted, signed out, restarted but same thing. Can't change to*slow/fast ring. Anyone knows a fix to this?

    Replace "enthusiasm" with "trepidation".

    Enthusiasm died long ago, back before the b10xxx series was released.

    Did you ever find the solution to the W10 Home Local Account issue you had?

    Seems like the easiest way to thwart MS.

    Triple Boot Windows 10 IP Build 17004/Windows Server 2016/Debian Sid

    Me, too. Marty's may be licensed but not activated.

    What's the difference? Is there some link to MS legalease?

    I think what I need is a way to de-active some of the VMs that were activated but are now history. Is there a way to access (using a valid Microsoft account) that list?. I'd really appreciate that if someone has the way - or perhaps there is even a tutorial on this forum that discusses it.

    I've gotten Linux to install on my primary machine - I will run VMware and Virtualbox VMs but spare the postings of redundant screenshots. However the Group Policy error screen is still not explained.

    Don't try to use Safe Mode in 15014. It's worse than just broke. Gets you in a loop of flashing screen from which there is no easy way to recover. Just took me 25 minutes to find my way back to normal boot!!! Will post in Feedback Hub.

    Check for your devices in your MS account.

    Think it's in Store or something. Never easy to find. Limit, I think, is 10.

    Oh, and Marty, I wasn't trying to imply you had anything unlicensed or inactivated. That's why I said may. Just was throwing out a possibility. The lack of an expiration date is unusual, that's all. No attack intended.

    I remove my devices in my MS account. 10 devices is the limit. You can only install a app on 10 devices that are on your account. I have reached this limit many times. I hope MS raises the limit.
