    regarding language pack installation

    Are you running a fast ring insider build?

    Then read the release notes as this is a known issue with the latest fast ring insider build.

  3. What is the latest windows insider fast ring build for Lumia 535?

    What is the latest windows insider fast ring build for Lumia 535? I am on the insider fast ring on my lumia 535 dual sim. The OS build is 10586.107 and checking for updates shows 'Your device is up to date'. Even the official release of windows 10 is build
    10586.164 why I am not able to get further updates in fast ring? In the insiders blog it shows for fast ring build
    14291 is available, but I am not able to update to it. Why?

    Great tutorial!

    But is this really what MS calls a supported method of clean install? I would rather call it a clean upgrade. *Wink

    What the tutorial shows is how to clean install Windows 10 which when booted to desktop first time after installation is in last Fast Ring Insider build.

    If they can say that a reset equals clean install, you can for sure call this method a clean install, too.

    Yeah - that seems more appropriate.

    I guess it's main plus over simply upgrading is that it does not create a windows.old folder?

    I must admit that I am struggling to see when I personally would actually ever use this except when the uup to iso method (and/or subsequent unofficial clean install) or a conventional upgrade failed.

    Windows Insider - Clean install latest Fast Ring build

    No, this method creates Windows.old.

    The main benefit / purpose is that you get the upgrade even before Windows has finalized the setup and user accounts created. It is as pure Fast Ring Insider build as possible, and upgrade does not fail because underlying base is as clean Windows as possible.

    Ok - then it really is a clean upgrade by our normal definition of an upgrade. We can call it whatever we like, but it is not a clean install by our normal definition.

    Still this is just verbal semantics - the main point is (as you say), it makes the upgrade more reliable. It does no matter how we get from A to B provided we get there.

    If you cut to the chase by invoking OOBE whilst in the Defaultuser0 mode, why not just apply the relevant WIM/ESD image with DISM, cutting out the preparatory checks and operations run by Windows Setup to get straight to OOBE? Surely this is an approved methodology for deployment, and lends itself to automation if it (the reset/update) is to be regularly repeated with new insider builds?

    Depending on the required configuration - GPT/UEFI or MBR/BIOS, you can make it as elaborate or compact as you like for your chosen hardware and system needs.

    Where would you get WIM / ESD file?

    The starting point, whole idea in this tut is to get as cleanly installed Fast ring build as possible in a way that is supported. When Microsoft's Insider team sees an ISO made from UUP files as a big bad wolf, a big no no, where and how would you get install.wim image to apply? As soon as you make it from UUP files, you are in unsupported territory.

    Windows Insider - Clean install latest Fast Ring build

    Those downloads are not Fast Ring builds. They are either last official release, at the moment 1709, or last Slow Ring ISO, at the moment 16299. Applying those images does not give user latest Fast Ring build, at the moment 17025.

    Tutorial tells to download one of them to have an officially supported install media to start with (official release or Slow Ring ISO), then use defaultuser0 to upgrade.

    I might misunderstand something, but my question remains: where to get the last Fast Ring install.wim to be applied?
     
  14. Yep, that is the real question here. And the answer is: From nowhere

    Sheesh! I forgot about this tutorial while redoing my dual boot last night. Although I used a 17017.1000 UUPtoISO on a thumb, created a local account at first, it configured fast ring Insider after changing to MS account, and all went well, but this would've been quicker. I wouldn't have had to spend the time to create the 17017 thumb (with Rufus) and kept the MCT thumb in to install it this way on my second partition.

    Also, not a big thing, but when changing to an MS account straightaway, I had a little problem with the naming of my email account. It called it something like WT738 or something like that. I was able to change it ok. Had no problem on primary partition OS. Weird.

    I'll have to edit my notes to this. Thinking of redoing my Acer, but it has legacy BIOS. We'll see.
