    Something very strange is going on here though,

    ... every time I open Updates, (numerous times a day!), I get this same screen:

    Thanks Edwin. I looked there but at the time I was in 15063.502 and it is significantly different. That is why I asked.

    Are you on 'Skippy' now?
    It failed for me the first time. I guess I was to slow in Regedit and I didn't leave Windows Insiders Settings open.
    Since that failure I created a favorite for the the key in Regedit and I open Regedit and get ready before I open Windows Insider Settings and choose Skip Ahead. Then I work fast in Regedit and I leave everything open and immediately restart Windows 10.

    And yes both of my 16257.1000 iterations are now on Skip Ahead. One of the iterations was just clean installed yesterday using an ISO for testing something else.

    You might want to try the Troubleshooter for Updates. Mine did similar to that during my 16215 fiasco. AND/ OR see when the last updates were installed in the Windows Defender Security Center, should be today.

    I tested this now on two different new Hyper-V virtual machines, both of them reacted the same way:

    When on desktop after clean install, I opted in adding an Insider account, the default Slow ring was selected. The registry trick did not work now by switching to Fast ring > Skip. After restart string ContentType has already been automatically created with value Active, no need to manually create it because switching to Fast ring creates it.

    Now, after restart, I opened regedit and double clicked ContentType string to open it for edit, typed Skip as new value but did not click OK to save it. Instead, leaving regedit open I opened Settings and went to Insider settings, switched to Skip ahead and immediately back to reg edit, clicked OK to save ContentType with new value and restarted.

    Works like a charm. Both virtual machines, clean installed today are now skipping ahead

    Thanks to CountMike and Kari for verifying that the registry trick works. Edwin you cannot dawdle around in Regedit . You must be ready to go quickly.

    I have Serial No. which is "0" for a VM, although that's back on 16237.
    For a physical machine on 16251 (non-Skippy) it's showing what looks like the correct serial number.

    From post #475.

    I open WD, click on the shield, and there are only the following:

    scan history

    virus & threat protection settings

    protection updates

    Nothing else. This has happened only in this build, all settings are on.
    I am having poor internet speeds and erratic connection at present, but WD reports being up to date.

    Where does the serial number originate, mobo? SSD/HD? BIOS? Anybody know.
