    This build will expire on 7/31/20 blue dialog


    I've recently done a reset on my laptop, keeping files but removing all apps installed since the OS was originally installed. I was on Insider Developer track. The following is from SETTINGS/SYSTEM/ABOUT:

    Edition Windows 10 Home Insider PreviewVersion 2004Installed on ‎7/‎18/‎20OS build 20161.1000Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.16201.0.0

    I periodically get a blue dialog box saying: "This build will expire on 7/31/20." There is a MORE INFO button, but I get a "Page Not Found" when I click it.

    Check for updates says that I'm up to date, and that there are no optional updates.

    I'm thinking of doing a clean install of V2004 from a thumb drive created with Media Creation Tool. Any ideas for things to try before I resort to that?

    TIA

    A lot of people are reporting this on other forums.

    MS will issue a fix shortly for sure.

    Easiest solution is to join DEv Channel But then you would be beyond 20H2 i.e. not able to leave until next Spring.

    On the Dev channel you should be seeing the update to build 20170.1000 by now - unless, that is, you have an AMD processor.

    PLEASE NOTE: Windows Insiders with PCs that have AMD processors will not be offered this build today due to a bug impacting overall usability of these PCs. The issue should be fixed for the next flight.

    I have seen a lot of posts about 20161 expiring which is odd as recently new build. MS must surely fix this soon or AMD users could be screwed.

    I do have an AMD processor, so, looks like I'm gonna just do a clean install of 2004. I guess I should download a new Media Creation Tool to make sure I'm getting the latest.
