  1. Updating work computer: 1909 to 20H2 in less than 3 hours


    Good day everyone. I have an issue. I hope you can help me.

    The place where I work has a PC with Windows 10 Home, which needs to be updated. Current version is 1909, build 18363.1316. It isn't updated to 2004, so it's going to be from 1909 straight to 20H2. I have a couple of questions. First, here are the system specifications:

    -It's a SHARE X4000 PC
    -118 GB HD (44.8 used, 73.7 available)
    -Processor is a Celeron 386U @1.80 GHz
    -4 GB RAM
    -64 bit system

    Extra Equipment:
    -Toshiba 4 TB external drive (2.5 TB available, I already have some stuff there)
    -USB 16 GB stick

    First, and most important, I think, is that Windows Home's updates can't be delayed indefinitely, so eventually the computer will update by itself. This is a problem, because we can't afford to lose half a day of work (or more) due to the PC suddenly updating. I am not in a situation where I can be there and actively participate in the process. These are my questions:

    -What's the best way to update in this situation? Directly from Settings, ISO download, etc?

    -How long you think it will take to move from 1909 to 20H2? Can it be done in under 2 hours? Maybe 3 if there is an unexpected issue? As far as I can tell, this time frame is not negotiable (the boss doesn't agree with me staying at the shop overnight), so, if something goes wrong after that, it won't be addressed until 7-9 hours later, when business opens again. This is, start the update, let it run overnight, and the people who open the shop in the morning continue if necessary (these people have practically no experience dealing with this kind of stuff). What are the odds of something going wrong during the update? Will time be lost in the morning if something unexpected happens? Is it necessary for me to overlook the whole process, or is there a way to configure the update to finish by itself?

    -Of course, I plan to make a backup, since we can't afford to lose anything, but I still don't know if it will be a disk image, clone, cloud storage... which one(s) is(are) more convenient in this situation?

    So, I need to backup the system, upgrade, and check for errors / bugs in less than 3 hours. How should I proceed?

    Also, in case this can't be done, is there a way to stop the major updgrades without interfering with the security / bug-fix ones? Maybe via registry or Power Shell or something?

    Thanks a lot for your attention, have a nice day.

    :)

    "Can 1909 be updated with 20H2"

    Yes, I have had updates for 1909 and Windows Defender, also drivers etc.
    I did have an update for 2004 but never installed it, then it was replaced by 20H2 and I never installed that either.
    Then 20H2 was deleted and replaced by a step back note, which has been there some time and seems stuck -

  3. Updating Win 10 1909 to 20H2 directly, will there be any problems?

    Hi, just got a new ssd installed, and my local vendor installed the 1809 version in my system. I updated the software to 1909 but there is no update for ver 2004 under Update and Security in settings. I couldn't find any update assistant of 2004, but the
    one for 20H2 is available. Is it fine if I directly upgrade to ver 20H2? Will there be any issue or should I upgrade to 2004?

    Update 20h2

    Hi Wicki,

    I am Sumit, an Independent Advisor and a 3 year Windows Insider MVP here to help.

    20H2 should not be installed right-away on your device - MS said the rollout is only to a fraction of users and would be labeled as an optional update initially. Are you enrolled in WIP?

    You may uninstall 20H2 using the steps below:
