    Build 14291. What works and what doesn't on my install.


    1. Sfc /scannow does not work...........Windows Resource protection could not start the repair service.

    2. Dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth works.

    3. Safe mode does not work. Once got to safe mode, the screen kept refreshing/blinking and unable to do anything.

    4. Microsoft Translator works.

    Have you looked inside the BT and or WS folder(s) for the Sources\setup.exe file? You can actually start the 10 installer for an on the spot upgrade to repair from inside 10. Been looking at possible ways to make up bootable iso images from the contents found there to see if that type of project can work.

    This is a terrible Build. There's a lot of stuff whacked out under the 'hood'.

    I know it s beta software but the quality control seems to have been missed off in the latest builds

    This build has entirely broken my OS environment, and I'm glad this forum shares opinions without being MS shills. I understand this is just beta software, but I can't believe this build made it to the fast ring.

    Explorer.exe crashes constantly, fullscreen video with any application or browser using a dual monitor display totally wrecks and freezes my everything. My desktop icons got mangled around, and my start menu pins have been deleted.

    This build has been a nightmare for me and I can't wait for a new one
