    You can upgrade to the Windows 10 May 2019 Update right now (but you shouldn't)


    Microsoft plans to release the May 2019 Update for Windows 10 at the end of May 2019. The update will be rolled out slowly to devices at that point and it will take months before a good percentage of devices has been upgraded.

    The update is the last that pushes it automatically on to user devices; Microsoft revealed earlier this month that the feature updating process will change after the release of the May 2019 Update. Instead of pushing updates to compatible systems automatically, feature updates are presented to the administrator of the device but not installed automatically anymore unless the current version is about to run out of support.

    The extra month of testing is direct consequence of the fiasco that came out of the release of the last feature update for Windows 10, the Windows 10 version 1809 update. Microsoft had to pause distribution after breaking bugs were found that affected devices in numerous ways. To avoid history repeating itself, Microsoft decided to push the May 2019 Update to the Release Preview ring to give it another round of testing to improve the release quality.

    The last feature update, Windows 10 version 1809, reached broad deployment status just last month.

    Upgrading to Windows 10 May 2019 Update

    It is generally a good idea to delay the installation of feature updates on Windows 10 machines to make sure all bugs are sorted out. Administrators who are brave enough, or need to test the new version of Windows, may upgrade existing machines right now to the May 2019 Update.

    Note: as always, make sure you create a backup of the system and any important file before you install the update.

    Microsoft has not released ISO images of the May 2019 Update officially, and it is not available on Windows Update. The Media Creation Tool on the other hand is already available; you may use it to create Windows 10 version 1903 installation media or upgrade the operating system right away using it.

    The build that gets installed is Build 18362.1, the last build that Microsoft released to the Release Preview ring is 18362.53.

    All you need to do is the following:

    1. Download the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft: download link
    2. Run the tool after the download. It needs Internet connectivity so make sure it is not blocked.
    3. Accept the Terms of Service.
    4. Decide whether to create installation media (USB Flash Drive or DVD, or ISO image), or upgrade the PC right away.
    5. Wait for the process to complete.

    The tool downloads the installation files and starts the upgrade process. The PC needs to restart multiple times during the process. If things work out well, Windows 10 should be upgraded to the May 2019 Update.

    Closing Words


    Should you update using the tool? Unless you need to, e.g. to test the new operating system on test machines, I'd say that it is better to wait until Microsoft releases the new version officially and some months have passed.

    win 10 upgrade asking for product key


    Just try it through Windows update, you shouldn`t have any issues.

    Excellent question Navy, that`s probabaly why. If not then, as suggested, just use the Media Creation Tool and choose upgrade this PC in Step 3.

    Last year at Ignite, we announced Office 2019 – the next perpetual version of Office that includes apps (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, and Skype for Business) and servers (including Exchange, SharePoint, and Skype for Business). Today we’re pleased to share the following updates:

    • Office 2019 will ship in H2 of 2018. Previews of the new apps and servers will start shipping in the second quarter of 2018.
    • Office 2019 apps will be supported on:
      • Any supported Windows 10 SAC release
      • Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2018
      • The next LTSC release of Windows Server
    • The Office 2019 client apps will be released with Click-to-Run installation technology only. We will not provide MSI as a deployment methodology for Office 2019 clients. We will continue to provide MSI for Office Server products.

    Windows 10 upgrade problem, no input accepted

    I really hate having to come here and ask for help, but I really am stumped. It hurts my geek pride. I have a PC with fairly modern hardware in it. It has a p8p67 pro in it. I have tried upgrading windows 10 on it twice now. Both times I have had the same result.

    After windows finishes upgrading it goes to the log in/set up screen. I can't do anything. No keyboard or mouse input is accepted.

    I will list some, or hopefully all, of the troubleshooting steps I have tried:
    • Move keyboard and mouse to different USB ports.
    • Try different keyboard or mouse.
    • Restart computer, repeatedly.
    • Google for related issues.
    • Update Bios, because why not.
    • Create boot media and revert to windows 7.
    The windows 10 system restore boot media works fine with keyboard and mouse. All USB ports work in windows 7. I don't know what is wrong. I suspect that windows 10 is lacking a driver of some sort, but since the computer accepts no input I have no way of checking for which driver let alone installing it.

    Please help me figure this out. If I have to revert back to windows 7 again, I am not going to get it upgraded to windows 10. Thank you in advanced.
