ASCCA Conference - Thursday 9th Nov - 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

Held at the Rydges Hotel, WORLD SQUARE, Pitt Street, Sydney.

Friday Forum - Friday 10th Nov - 9:30 am - 12 noon

Following the usual Q&A, we'll discuss the failed installation of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, version 1709, on the Club's machine.

Maybe we could try the update again later (or now?). Some members may have success stories that they could share with us all.

Quoting from the Windows Latest webpage of October 27, 2017 (not an official Microsoft source):

"A lot of users have reported several issues after installing the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and now it appears that there is yet another bug causing the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update installation to fail on certain PCs. According to the report, you cannot install Windows 10 Fall Creators Update on a device with Intel's X299 chipset and NVMe SSD drive.

Just like the previous versions of Windows, the Fall Creators Update is also buggy. The update downloads successfully but when the PC reboots, the installation throws an error message and finally restores the Windows operating system. The issue has affected certain PCs with Gigabyte, Asus and MSI motherboards.

Microsoft has confirmed that it is aware of the reported issue and the company is actively working with the OEMs to release a fix for the bug that prevents the installation of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Meanwhile, if you would like to force the update on your PC, you can download the official ISOs."

Communications - Friday 10th Nov - 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
