    Still no signs of 1809. Should I be doing something?


    I still haven't received version 1809 of Windows 10 Home on my Lenovo Yoga2Pro laptop. Is there something I should be doing to make my machine compatible?

    I saw this Lenovo devices tested for Windows 10 version 1809 (October 2018) - US
    which says to first upgrade Intel Graphics Driver to version 24.20.100.6286
    but this seems to apply to later versions of the Intel chips (I have Intel Core i7 4500U 4th generation Haswell). I am on Graphics driver ver 20.19.15.4835

    I ran intel's diagnostics assistant
    Intel® Driver & Support Assistant
    It updated some wireless drivers, but didn't prompt to update the Graphics Driver.

    Minor updates on Windows are fine, the problem is that I am not being pushed the six-monthly versions.
    I'm on Windows 10 Home ver 1803, build 17134.648
    HW: Yoga2Pro core i7 4500U
    26GB free on C: drive)

    I don't want to force-it through Update Assistant, as I have had problems with the 6 monthly builds in the past. I don't mind waiting, as long as it is eventually going to be pushed to me.

    I asked the manufacturer who just said 'ask microsoft'. It seems that I can't ask microsoft without a MS user login (which I don't have, or particularly want).

    Am I doomed to stay on 1803 forever?

    thanks

    You might get 1903 in the next month. Or might not. Personally, I've always done the version upgrades by downloading the ISO file using Microsoft's media creation tool, saving the ISO file to the hard drive, and updating from that.

    First, probably be grateful you didn't get early releases of 1809. MS has typically taken 2-3 months to deliver the build to all users using an AI system to prioritise delivery. Second, if you look at the relevant News threads you will find there are also certain restrictions in place on the delivery aimed at protecting certain users for whom the upgrade would not be appropriate.

    Meanwhile, take advantage of the delay to make sure your disk images are current- just in case.

    You don't say, but I'm assuming you are relying on windows update to find and deliver 1809 automatically and have not yet manually checked for updates. As Dalchina says...
    ...MS has typically taken 2-3 months to deliver the build to all users using an AI system to prioritise delivery.
    ...which means their AI may just have not got round to you yet.

    Microsoft have said that 1809 is....
    Microsoft said:
    ...Fully available for advanced users who manually select “Check for updates” via Windows Update.
    ...and that it is safe to do so because...
    Microsoft said:
    ...If we detect that your device may have an issue, such as an application incompatibility, we will not install the update until that issue is resolved, even if you “Check for updates”.

    My machine has also not updated yet from 1803 to 1809, but to be honest I am not in a hurry for these feature updates anyway.

    Microsoft updates the machine with monthly security and other essential updates, which keeps the machine secure (I hope) and up to date and running smoothly.

    Considering the number of posts on this forum and other sites I have visited I wonder whether Microsoft needs to reconsider their bi-annual feature upgrades and implement something more stable or perhaps at least less confusing for average users.

    Yep, I've done that. I did stay away from it for the first few months, but have lately taken to clicking on the Check-for-updates button. As we're almost at the next version 1904, I was thinking they would have caught-up by now - just wondering if there was something specific to my machine that I need to fix (as the first link in the first post seems to state )

    - well, you could on a publicly available MS-run forum - but whether you'd get a terribly useful answer is perhaps questionable...

    Safe procedure: update your disk image set (you do use disk imaging, I hope)- download 1809 iso- attempt the upgrade. Your disk image gives you a chance to restore your system should things go badly.

    Yes, I thought about that, but it seems like a lot of (potential) work, vs. it fixing itself automatically next month.

    I hadn't considered the scenario where they go straight from 1803 to 1904. I guess I'll just wait another month...

    Same thing with disk imaging applies before any major change- so be prepared for Windows Update or anything else. And note best not to take 190x until after first update if you can, noting it could be 2-3 months before 190x is offered by WU.
