    Red face No 1809 win 10 update for me?

    Hi Guys and Gals,
    I have been checking and clicking for windows updates in the attempt to receive 1809 upgrade for my HP Elitebook laptop. So far no joy in receiving this update
    I've come here wondering why this may be. My apologies if this has been covered in other posts. I have been aware of the problems with the earlier release of this update but I thought it was all good now,[well sort of].
    Have I perhaps missed something?
    with thanks, John

    why so eager to install such a bug ridden update

    MS pulled it for very good reasons.
    Wait untill its 100% tested & commonly installed on PC's .
    do you really want to do MS's product testing for them

    Yup, it was pulled. And it would have crashed your system, because it's an HP

    Unless you booted into safe mode, renamed a file so you could get into Windows

    Point taken on why so eager, I don't update my android phone apps until I see the reports come in on the good and bad.

    Avoid hitting Windows updates when a update rolls out,wait to see if any problems appear and fixes applied

    I have a HP laptop new last year and it is on 1809 with no problems what so ever, it came in through the auto update last month.

    No more updates for my 2+ year-old Samsung phone.

    Samsung only gives 2 updates, how sad.

    Same here on our 3 HP laptops and 1 Gigabyte laptop too. No data loss, no probs with zip files, no crashes or BSODs or any of the other reported issues. The only thing I've noticed is for the two machines with Windows Defender as the realtime AV, is the definition updates are being time and date stamped 13hrs ahead of NZ time. No problems with the CU that came out a few weeks later either. Guess we were lucky.

    Honestly, that means nothing at all. A bit like saying : I drive drunk, never crashed & never been caught
    Plenty have had serious issues. Not everyone, but plenty of people.
    1809 was so bad MS withdrew it within a few days .

    MS fired most of the testing staff for updates. What they are doing is using the public(insiders) to test updates for them .
    And again & again , bugs reported by insiders arnt being fixed before the updates are released
    So its now a crap shoot as to what issues windows updates will have.
