    On the tiles section, on almost all the computers here, there are very few of the default tiles showing, I only put tiles for programs I use.
    Thanks. I'll check that out.

    Four installs went without a hitch apart from the now usual long delay at about 75%. The actual update after the restart seemed to go considerably quicker than it has on the past.

    Started one of Mine this morning, set it going, came back later after an hour or so, at 77%, 30 minutes later, still at 77% -------left it alone for a few hours, it was waiting for the reboot, made the ISO first, rebooted went out to do the shopping, came back - all done.

    Haven't had a chance to see "whats new" yet, tomorrow will have play.

    I wonder what's happening at 77% that makes it apparently grind to a halt?

    The 77% according to one post (which I posted a while back) is the 2nd boot phase. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...7-f1f402eb1b15 I suspect that's the phase its doing a LOT of integrating the current to New OS, after it reboots it finishes it off. ( only a guess)

    I just looked at that presentation again and what you are referring to is much later in the process - after the machine has gone from the "initialising/preparing/downloading/installing" bit and rebooted and does the "proper" install. What we are talking about is in the "downlevel phase" before the first reboot.
