RS4 is 1803. March 2018.
1807 would be July 2018 lol
Windows 10 will download security updates even if we are set on a metered connection. I have lost close to 1 GB a few times now.
I mixed up versions.. 1607 & 1803..
Thanks for info..
I uninstalled 1803 because it was buggy and went back to 1709. I want to give 1803 another shot, but check for updates shows I am on the latest OS. Anyway to force update to 1803?
Why force update? Microsoft will deliver it soon unless you have disabled the update service.
Well, they should have by now. I had installed i tin april and then unistalled it in a week because of BSODs. Now it's been over 3 months and it has still not been delivered automatically. so I wanted to somehow force it. I hope that explains it?
I was assuming that after 3 months, now it will be less buggy
What is your hardware,it seems like RS4 latest build(10.0.17134.137) will not install on certain older hardware.
It's a new laptop - Acer Nitro 5. I bought it 6 months ago.
You can manually upgrade from RS3 to RS4 using official RS4 win 10 iso by running its setup within RS3.
Is there any legit way to upgrade to windows 10 for free still ? from windows 8.1
How to Upgrade to Windows 10 for Free in 2018
Doesn't work for everyone, but definitely worth a try
Yes,there is.Also there is no need for win 8.1 either.Simply install win 7 ultimate inside a virtual machine using vmware player or virtualbox,activate it using "your preferred method" & then run the latest win 10 iso setup.exe to upgrade from win 7 ultimate to win 10 pro.Create a MS account & then use that to login to now activated genuine win 10 pro to link your win 10 pro license to that MS account.After that close the VM & then install win 10 pro in your real pc,use that same MS account to login & run the troubleshooter to transfer license to activate this win 10 pro in your real PC.
@whitestar_999 : You should not suggest loader activation to users here.
Why not?? Cause of forum rules against piracy?
^ that kinda sounded not legit.
they are using the same windows 8.1 key to unlock 10.....
I am not suggesting to use pirated win 7,it is just a temporary step.Also it is MS itself which is allowing free upgrade to a genuine license fully aware that such activated win 7 will also pass the check which implies that MS has no issues with this either & as long as one upgrade to win 10 they are happy.At the end of this procedure one still gets a genuine win 10 license which is the one going to be used.
Usage of third party loaders in a way means circumventing the license protection even if it's a temporary step. That’s against the EULA that you accept to install Windows 7 in the first place. Microsoft allows you to use Windows 7 for 30 days without activation.
If you have a genuine Windows 8.1 on your PC/Laptop you can still get a digital license of Windows 10 (matching edition) on it by upgrading Windows 8.1 to 10 from within 8.1.
Make sure that
1. You copy Windows 10 installation files to another partition on the laptop or desktop in question
2. Run Windows 10 Setup.exe as administrator (preferred)
3. Select ‘Keep files and programs’ option during upgrade (preferred)
Upon upgrade, connect to the internet and wait for 15 – 20 minutes or run the activation troubleshooter. MS will grant you a digital license to your copy of Windows 10. I have successfully upgraded my Windows 8.1 OEM Laptop to Windows 10 recently using this method and it worked well in Oct-2018. Later in this month I have even done a clean install of Windows 10 (1803) on it and MS very well re-activated my copy of Windows 10 with digital entitlement.
Sometimes you might get a frustrating error message,
. Even if installer has picked the OEM Key from the BIOS. It's a temporary error message due to some issues with activation servers. Keep trying and it should work.

I remember long back a user here posted some warez group name as a comment. I don't know what happened then to him.
Yes, and anybody who will read that can easily understand what he is talking legal or illegal
^^Edited my previous post & I hope you all be as strict regarding "piracy" & "rule of law" in real life too.
