    Insider Preview New Build 14291

    Just checked for updates on my Win10 Pro x64 IP desktop PC; it is downloading build 14291.

    Judging by present download progress this is an entirely new build, not just a "cumulative update"; it will probably take another hour or more to download, and who knows? how long to install.

    This came out on Thursday, March 17 around 7 p.m. Easter Daylight time. I have been running it since then. It actually downloaded in minutes for me, and the install was also pretty short. About hour all together I suppose. It runs real nice!

    As expected it took about an hour to download (6Mbps ADSL connection) then almost an hour "preparing to install" before asking for a restart.

    After the restart there was a black "updating Windows" screen with a central circled % which very slowly crept up for about two hours (quad-core @2.5GHz desktop PC w/ 4GB RAM, C:\ partition is 74GB) before eventually reaching 100%.

    That is weird. Try this next time you update. Decrypt esd to iso. Restart your computer. Then run setup.exe from mounted iso. I let WU prepare to install, then copy install.esd from sources folder in that windows~bt file or whatever it's called to esd decrypter program I have. I make iso. copy to another drive. Restart, then upgrade. Then I take dogs for a walk when I come back it is done!

    @Coochin,

    Insider preview releases are almost always full releases. It would take something unusual for any "normal" type of update to an Insider Preview release.

    The time to upgrade varies greatly on machines that I'm aware of. I just let it go and not worry about it as long as there is progress and it completes.
