    This version went right in no problems apart from I forgot I had set it going and couldn't tell how long it took

    Resetting -- Was the original Install from a insider build to start with or General release then changed to insider ?

    As far as I can remember it was from a general release to an insider.
    In any case it all seems to have turned to custard. I went out at about 1330 and it was just starting the reset. It had done a download and was starting the real work. When I got home at about 1545 I see a black screen with windows logo and "Please wait". No spinning dots, no apparent disk activity, nuttin'.

    This is on the machine that is multibooting with my main system, so I'm going to have to intervene sometime soon. I guess if I just pull the plug now I'll have a munted installation. How would I recover from that? This post is being done on my laptop.

    I took my courage in both hands and rebooted. It started the insider build OK and there was a message saying "there was a problem resetting your PC - no changes were made. So the good news is I don't have a totally munted system, the bad news is I'm no further forward. So What do I do now? I could try the reset again, but I'm not confident it would be any different.
