    Be Careful With The 9 May 2017 Update

    Before you install the update released today (9 May) be careful and take precautions.

    It installed to my PC when I started it earlier, though I didn't know it. The PC had restarted and was stuck at the blue window start up screen, the little dots just happily spinning around. It sounds like Windows has started but the start up screen won't go away.

    I got on my laptop to start researching the problem, not knowing about the update/restart. I found a couple things online I tried and even posted a question in the general forum. As I tried accessing my PC with a Win10 repair disk, my laptop updated and requested to restart. I wasn't using it right then and told it okay. Lo and behold, after it restarted, the laptop did the same thing as the PC, the start up screen that won't go away.

    Hardware wise, there is no cross over between. The PC is a 4 year old BYOPC with an i7 processor and NVidia graphics. The laptop is a 10 year old HP Pavilion with a Core 2 Quad processor and AMD graphics.

    I have had to resort to using my wheezy HP Slate10 HD tablet to post this warning.

    It may have for you, but not for me.

    I got the laptop back up by using a recovery disk and restoring back to before the update.

    My PC is still not working right. System restore keeps failing, no matter what date I pick.

    I doubt this is a widespread issue. All updates get some issue for some people. Best plan is to make regular image backups so easier to backtrack.

    There's a known issue for some (including me) in 1607...
    System Restore fails: AppxStaging %ProgramFiles%\WindowsApp 0x80070091
    ...which was fixed when I upgraded to Creators.

    Did the 05/09/17 update last night with no issues. Went from bld. 15063.138 to bld. 15063.296. There were 3 updates in the download. The restart portion ran rather long, but finished with no intervention. I did run a System Image save and created a new System Repair Disk just prior doing the update. Just in case things went awry.
