    Windows Hello on Surface Go Not Working After 2004 Update


    Windows 10 Updated w/2004
    Hello consistently not working after one or maybe two initial successes. Have tried to improve face recognition with no relief. In looking around windows and surface forums, I see that this a common and known issue.
    Apparently it has something to do with the IR camera - is anyone here aware of this. It seems Microsoft has no clue (or doesn't care)?

  2. Problem updating Windows Surface Pro 4 with Windows 10 feature updates

    Hi,

    I have manage to install image for Microsoft Surface Pro 4 by going to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...erecoveryimage and download a recovery image for Microsoft Surface Pro 4.

    What I did to reset your Surface from a USB recovery drive was:
    Step 1: Make sure your Surface is turned off and plugged in (hold down the power
    button for 30 seconds).
    Step 2: Insert the USB recovery drive into the USB port on your Surface.
    Step 3: Press and hold the volume-down button while you press and release the
    power button on your Surface.
    Step 4: When the Surface logo appears, release the volume button.
    Step 5: When prompted, select the language and keyboard layout you want.
    Step 6: Select Troubleshoot > Reset your PC.
    If prompted for a recovery key, select Skip this drive at the bottom of the
    screen.
    Step 7: Select the target operating system you wish to reset. This
    refers to the current operating system installed on your Surface.
    Step 8: Select Yes, repartition the drives, and on the next page, select Next.
    Step 9: Choose Just remove my files.
    Step 10: Select Reset.
    Surface restarts and the Surface logo displays while the reset process continues
    (this can take a while).

    This always fails and I have to do the below which continues installation.
    Windows 10 Installation Media:

    1. Insert the Media (DVD/USB) in your PC and restart.
    2. Boot from the media.
    3. Select Repair Your Computer.
    Select Troubleshoot.

    1. Choose Command Prompt from the menu:
    Type in the command:
    Diskpart
    Type in the command:
    List disk (Note which disk is your Boot drive number mine is 0)
    Type in the command:
    Sel disk 0
    Type in the command:
    List vol (Note which volume is the EFI partition mine is 4)
    Type in the command:
    Sel vol 4
    Type in the command:
    assign letter=V:
    Type in the command:
    Exit
    Type in the command:
    V:
    After you have assigned a drive letter Using Diskpart You can format the EFI partition:
    Example: if you assigned a letter V to the partition the command would be:
    format V: /FS:FAT32
    Type in the command:
    bcdboot C:\windows /s V: /f UEFI


    Now I have an issue that I cannot install Feature Updates. They keep failing to install.
    Any ideas how to resolve issue?

    Windows Hello not working

    Hi Jatine,

    Windows Hello makes the sign-in process easier and should be available on your Surface 4. However, when windows can’t detect the required sensors for Windows Hello, It may hide this feature from you. To diagnose and fix this issue, we suggest that you
    run the hardware troubleshooter. This tool can help diagnose and fix hardware issues.

    • Click Start.
    • On the search bar, type Troubleshooting, and click on
      Troubleshooting
      from the results.
    • Click Hardware and Sound.
    • Under Device, click Hardware and Devices.

    If the issue persists, we recommend that you download and install any pending updates that need to be installed on the computer through Windows Update and check if it helps resolve the issue.

    You may also refer to the following link for additional troubleshooting steps that you can perform:
