This update initially killed the trackpad on one of our laptops (HP Spectre 360), then the keyboard. Luckily it's a touch screen so could function in some form!

 

Tried updating the drivers, deleting/reinstalling them etc, but had no luck. Ended up trying to restore the computer to the point pre-update, but the restore failed. Luckily, somehow, it did manage to bring both the trackpad and keyboard to life.

freitasm: OneDrive for Business because this is what my organisation uses. I personally use OneDrive.

 

You're forced to use the OneDrive for Business sync client? Poor you! OneDrive for Business (cloud storage) syncs so much better with the unified "normal" OneDrive client. 

 

 

 

Back to the subject at hand... Had 2 Acer switch 10 convertibles, 1 upgraded without any issue, the other doesn't want to upgrade and keeps reverting to the previous version for some reason.  No hardware differences between the two. yell

Tested an install of Windows 10 on a Dell XPS 13 9365 (running W10 1703) I had in the office to resolve another issue; added the ISO to the desktop, ran and waited 30 minutes
On logon, the system advised that one of the audio pieces of software was removed due to incompatibility

 

Aside from a new people icon on the desktop, and the removal of the Store icon from the taskbar, everything seems to have worked.

 

Just waiting for it to contact our WSUS server and apply the first updates

I ran the search for updates button manually on my HP X18-1099ux last night as it was saying I was up-to-date but wasn't on v1709. Anyway, the Fall Creators Update came down the pipes and updated everything without a hitch. So, I'm still nice and happy :-)

My child has been enjoying no time limits since their computer updated to fall creators update. The machine now no longer honours the limits configured using Microsoft family time limits.

 

Anyone else have the same problem?

I have had the snipping tool just not show a save dialog when I choose save as on 1 of my PCs twice now, bit of a random thing to fail.

It sure is a tortuous process .... my desktop (i5/8GB RAM) did the download, install prep and install in about 3 hours.

 

My i5/4GB RAM laptop is at about 90% after nearly 6 hours!
