    Hi there

    Apart from a small glitch with Windows Defender it installs on a few machines very easily - probably easiest update done (installed manually with the update tool).

    Note though the following (for CU update - 1703)

    1) If you do a CLEAN install from the ISO or a bootable USB made from the ISO it will default to HOME so if you want pro etc see step 3).

    2) It may request activation - even though you previously had a digital licence - simply enter a W7 (or whatever) key by choosing change product number and enter the number.

    3) To get the version option (HOME/PRO/EDUCATION etc) at install time (note this is for CU update 1703 CLEAN install ) extract the ISO with a tool like 7-zip and add a file to the sources folder and name it ei.cfg with the following contents :

    [Channel]
    _Default
    [VL]
    0


    (the 0 must be added in the last line --not a typo).

    If you have made a bootable USB from the ISO you can add the file directly to the sources folder with file explorer.

    Note - same restriction though you can only update HOME-->HOME, PRO/Ultimate to PRO etc.

    Cheers

    Hi there

    Open the USB and you should see the directory as shown.

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	snapshot_1.png 
Views:	169 
Size:	32.2 KB 
ID:	132044

    Now open the sources folder and copy file ei.cfg (the one you should create with notepad or similar) to the sources folder.

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	snapshot_2.png 
Views:	8 
Size:	94.9 KB 
ID:	132043

    Now when you install Windows you will see the version options again.

    Cheers

    I don't get it really. Skylake PC, 980ti gpu, modern SSD, just over a year old and the machine has not got a sniff of the creators update. Not even the privacy settings KB. Whilst our decaying BRIX box running old Pentium, outdated SSD, tortoise like Intel integrated gpu got the update through windows update last night. Seems roll out is pretty random. I'm not going to force it manually but it would be nice to get past this

    It took an hour and a half on our creaking box but surprisingly went well with no hiccups. Logged into all the family user accounts on the machine and everything seemed functional with no apparent nasty surprises. Not impressed that MS doesn't respect a users setting for system restore and switches if off by default (why?) and also resets some network share settings. They should leave a users setup alone.

    Windows 10 Home x64, V1709 (16299.64)

    This machine was built in Nov. 2016 & purchased mid Jan. 2017. I decided to wait for it via Windows Update thinking it would come fairly early in the process. I'm still waiting my turn. And the longer it goes, the less I'm in a rush to have it get here.

    My sentiments as well. In my case mine was built in 11/16 but I purchased a week after Thanksgiving.

    Skylake has caused some issues, Microsoft is working on it.

    These are Windows 10 versions that are supported by Microsoft.
    1507 will be dropped in May, 2017

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit 1703 (15063.502)

    I have a Dell 530with a Q6600 and I cannot update it to 1703, I get an error saying the update is not suitable to my machine? Are the older CPU's going to be dumped by MS?

    With adding the ei.cfg file into the ISO, should we also add a PID.txt as per the Microsoft link
