    Windows 10 update 2004 - rollout issues

    What the .... heck? https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4568831/windows-10-update-kb4568831 What the heck is a "preview" of an update? Look at the long list of bugs.

    Windows 10 update 2004 - rollout issues

    Two months after the public release and the bug page for 2004 still has 6 outstanding bugs dating from said public release date. :rolleyes: And yet my machines are happy running Win10 2004. Tony, JR, did you ever get around to updating?

    I'm glad others responded. I don't do the whole cellphone thing.

    Windows 10 update 2004 - rollout issues

    OK so it's about 3 weeks into the desktop running 2004. No issues that I've seen. And my 3010 appears happy running with 16 GB of memory, Dell's support claims of not working with more than 8 GB notwithstanding.

    Windows 10 update 2004 - rollout issues

    So far so good. I'd put off buying a memory upgrade until I knew I'd have at least 18 months life on my Dell 3010. I ordered up a 16 GB upgrade and it arrived today. Dell only guarantees the 3010 will take 8 GB but lots of people in the Dell forum claim 16 GB works just fine. It uses the H61...

    Windows 10 update 2004 - rollout issues

    I guess I got tired of waiting. None of the issues on the MS Win 10 2004 "bug list" apply to me. I don't have a VRR monitor, bluetooth installed, etc. I checked every single item. So I downloaded the "Windows 10 update assistant". Using it I bypassed the block. It didn't take long and I...

    Windows 10 update 2004 - rollout issues

    Maybe I wasn't imagining things on my closet desktop. https://www.neowin.net/news/windows-10-version-2004s-new-feature-may-fix-chromes-high-ram-usage I don't really understand the details, only that some memory management changes make Chromium based browsers use less memory.

    Windows 10 update 2004 - rollout issues

    Well that was interesting. The upgrade to 2004 took a couple of hours for the closet desktop. It shocked me how long it took. What's strange is that 2004 appears to be a much more efficient OS than 1903 and 1909 were. The latter two really dragged running on the Wolfdale processor, even...

    Windows 10 update 2004 - rollout issues

    I pulled out my "closet" desktop, an archaic Intel Wolfdale Core 2 Duo Dell. Rather than recycle it I take it out of the closet every few months and run updates on it. I keep it around in case my other machines break and I have to get online to buy repair parts. It was updated to Win 10 1909...

    Windows 10 update 2004 - rollout issues

    It's 20 days past release for 2004. My desktop is still "not ready". That list of a dozen issues isn't really helpful since MS doesn't say which issue is the problem with any given computer. My desktop doesn't have a VRR display, nor bluetooth, nor a Thunderbolt dock, nor an Nvidia GPU. I...

    Windows 10 update 2004 - rollout issues

    Well I went ahead and installed 2004 on the laptop. Took a long time - an hour and a half - for the upgrade to finish. At 100 MBs the actual download didn't take long but the "install" took forever. So far so good. I can open and edit files in various formats. There are no yellow...

    Windows 10 update 2004 - rollout issues

    This is strange. I just got the invite to update to 2004 on my old Sandy Bridge laptop. This makes no sense. My desktop with the Ivy Bridge is still in "not ready yet" limbo. Yet the laptop has a lot more IO to support: touchpad, WiFi, WWAN, and so forth.

    Windows 10 update 2004 - rollout issues

    Another week has passed with no changes on the bug page. I don't even get the message from post #5 above on my laptop, which has a Sandy Bridge processor (my desktop has an Ivy Bridge processor).

    OK that Learn More button now takes you to the bug page for Windows 10 2004.

    Windows 10 update 2004 - rollout issues

    A message came today when I brought up the Windows Update page. MS must be worried about bad publicity. Under the blurb above there's a button to click labeled Learn More. It takes you to a bug page for Windows 10 1909 by mistake! :rolleyes...

    Windows 10 update 2004 - rollout issues

    Well the "April" revision ended up being released at the end of May. So far the Windows Update button for 2004 doesn't show yet on my two machines. ZDnet has a listing of outstanding issues at present...
