    I've got a laptop that still has no Creators Update, will it still eventually get it?

    Yes but you may have to be patient, it's being rolled out in phases. In addition, you may have hardware with known issues that's being blocked from receiving it until they're dealt with. More here...
    As discussed in previous blog posts, we continue to roll out the Windows 10 Creators Update in stages: We ensure things look good with the current population before we offer the update to even more devices.

    Waiting for Windows Update to do the upgrade has always proven to be the most unreliable and failure prone method of updating. Doing it manually has historically proven to be faster and more reliable.

    All true, but a manual install bypasses Microsoft's controlled rollout...
    Blocking availability of the update to devices we know will experience issues is a key aspect of our controlled rollout approach...

    It’s important to note that when customers ... manually install the Creators Update they bypass many of these blocks. Therefore, we continue to recommend (unless you’re an advanced user who is prepared to work through some issues) that you wait until the Windows 10 Creators Update is automatically offered to you...
    Windows 10 Creators Update rollout: First phase update

    Waiting to be offered, then manually installing would be the safest approach for those who don't feel they are 'advanced users'.

    As with any upgrade, best plan is to make an image backup first, then you can do manual upgrade with no real risk - worst case is you have to restore backup.

    As NavyLCDR says, manual upgrades have proven to be more reliable overall. This more than offsets risk of an issue with ignorig automatic upgrade being identified by MS.

    A manual install can be done but I still wonder if there's a reason the update hasn't been made available, possibly due to the known hardware issues Bree mentions. I clean installed the Creators Update on my machine probably 2 months ago and it's all working fine. I decided to just wait and see if the update would come for the laptop. I don't actually know if NZ has officially received the update via Windows update yet or not so it could also be the reason...

    You can continue to ask all the what-ifs or just do the upgrade manually. I know what I did. I manually upgraded the dozen computers on my home network the first week without a problem.

    Has there been any problems with this upgrade and nvidia drivers? I ask because my desktop has not yet recieved the 1703 upgrade even though I have got the privacy settings update.

    W10 FCU & W10 Insider

    I was offered a security checklist last week on my Asus 2in1, thinking that CU would follow shortly afterwards, but no joy so far. No hurry on this one, but might do it manually ?
