Been running build 9926 on my PC for a while now. I was in the “Fast” ring and was pushed build 10041 through Windows Update. Rebooted and install would not progress past 8%. It rolled back gracefully to 9926, then I changed the updating to the slow ring. Of course, the SAME build gets pushed to me again. ARGH! This time it goes to 5%. Rollback. The problem is of course you cannot turn off Windows Update in Windows 10 anymore (probably someone will figure out a way eventually…) and they kept pushing this same build out to me over and over again. You can suppress the update for 8 hours, but then…BOOM, installing build 10041, fail and rollback again!
Finally, they offered an ISO version of 10041 and I was able to install that just fine…but this does scare me a bit. I get that an update should not be deferred forever, but only 8 hours? It should be days, weeks…not hours.
