Tried the repair from 8826, actually refresh is what it's called. From 9926, it want media which could be caused from earlier BSODs. During which it rebooted several times. Finished but wiped out about twenty apps, no settings retained but kept the Documents folder intact.
I changed the default OS in msconfig to my W7 OS. Restored an 9926 image but right now dual-boot is hosed as it booted right into W7 right after the restore with no selection option, pressing F12, selecting W10 and it boots into W7! Oh well.....been here before!
I'm guessing that the 9841 install has been updated though the preview build update process? Or are you tryin to go directly from 9841 to 10041?
Give MS the feedback from your update experience - that will help in the long run.
The best advice I can offer anyone in this thread is to do a clean install to whatever you boot Win10 using the 10041 ISO
Windows 10 Technical Preview ISO March Update - Microsof Windows
I've read a lot of members saying that the issues in a particular PB release aren't worth the trouble to install.
That's the point of a PB release - it's not production code.
I guess there are two types of Insiders
1) Test drivers - just taking it for a spin
2) Techno Geeks - don't mind development code and watching how issues get resolved.
The only thing that will stop me from installing a PB release is: If the state of the PB release prevents me from installing it..
This happened with 10.041 through the update channel. It took me many hours to get it installed (I boot to VHD and the install said You can't update a VHD). I tried to do the ESD to ISO thing, but the ESD kept getting removed before I could grab it. Third time's the charm, got the ESD and created the ISO.
I could have waited a few more days to get the ISO from the Insider Pgm, but ... I'm a Techno Geek
Best of luck to everyone.
BTW: W10TP build 9926 is booting again, it was just boot delay timer.
I completely understand - and appreciate your diligence to the 'normal' process.
I manage my installs by downloading any favorite apps I use on a regular basis (gfx & text editors, A/V player, office suite, and my trusted toolbox utilities). I don't install EVERY application on every build - only the 'essential' apps.
I do test all apps every few installs, but only to see if they operate - you're right ... that takes too much work to do every time
It's good to see other members managing the TP in different ways. I learn form the issues that show up on their machines, but not on my machine ... I also learn what might be causing an issue on my machine that way. It's a really great community on the DM forums.
It sounds as though you are a very good representative of a normal Windows user ... on the other hand, I'm a techno geek and by definition break a lot of things by mucking around in system files. Then I have to figure out how to fix what I broke
Anywayyyyyy, it's good to hear that your machine is back up and running on 9926.
Thanks again for the update,
I can't update to preview 10041: Error 0x80246017
Windows TP 9926 is updated
I have reverted registry keys back to their original values
What else can I do?
is Build 10041 really so bad? is there a list of bugs i can see?
i still cant for the life of me install this Build 10041 even with there fresh iso from there website! its like microsoft doset want mt to try!
can someone tell me where the windows 10 setup keeps its fail logs because "something has happened" dosent explain Shit microsoft!
is this it?
setupact.log & setuperr.log in
Here's a registry merge that will do it for you: winSelfHost.reg
Code:Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost\Applicability] "BranchName"="fbl_impressive" "ThresholdRiskLevel"="low" "ThresholdOptedin"=dword:00000000 "ThresholdInternal"=-
Merge the file then try Windows update again.
Failing an update, try installing fresh from the ISO. You can download Win10.041 here:
