  1. [ HELP ] Going back to previous Windows Build


    Hi!

    So I installed the new windows build ( 2004 ) but unfortunately didn't read anything before doing it and that's why I have several issues now with this new update. I know that I can go back to the previous build but I want to know if I will lose any data and if it will take a lot of space on my main drive?

    ( I know that everything done after the update can't be saved so that's why I'm planning on going back before doing anything )

    Thanks for you help [ HELP ] Going back to previous Windows Build :)

  2. reverting to previous build/version

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I would appreciate if you could answer few questions to narrow down the issue.


    • When the computer did froze? Is it when you tried to roll back?
    • Did you receive any error message?
    I suggest you to remove all the external devices plugged in to the computer and check if it helps to resolve the issue. If the issue persists, please restart the computer and check whether it rolled back or not. If it loads Windows 10,
    I suggest you to download the latest ISO of Windows 10 and perform automatic repair.

    Download Windows 10

    Steps to perform repair:

    a) Insert the installation DVD or USB
    and boot Windows 8 from it.

    b) In the ‘Windows setup’ page select the language to install’, ‘Time and currency format’ and the ‘keyboard or input method’ and click on ‘next’.

    c) Click on ‘Repair your computer’ and select ‘Troubleshoot’.

    d) Click on ‘Advanced options’ and select ‘Automatic Repair’ and select the operating system.


    If you really would like to rollback, I suggest you to refer the below article on How to go back to the previous operating system (Windows 7/8.1) from Windows 10.
