Win 10 Build 1909

Recommended Posts

From what I'm reading, it seems the 1909 build is more like a regular update than a new code rewrite.  I also cannot find an "Enterprise" ISO that isn't an Evaluation Edition as the only one I can find is for Home or Pro versions.

Can we update our Reference Machines to 1909 via normal update instead of a fresh install without breaking deployment?

Our official recommendation is to always install the version of Windows 10 that you want to deploy, direct from ISO. In-place upgrades often cause problems. These are problems that are usually too complicated to bother fixing, (Or the update simply broke sysprep) resulting in building a new Reference VM anyway. 

That being said, I have tested (as I usually do) performing an in-place upgrade to v1909 and capturing and deploying my test image successfully. I should note, that this was a VM with zero additional software installed. 

I would make a back-up of your virtual machine before trying the update and capture/deployment. (You can use snapshots, you'll just need to use a warm capture to capture your image.)

After updating to 1909 and creating new images, seems any local account (including administrator) has it's password corrupted and that user can no longer log in. I have not tried it using a domain account.  We do use the local administrator account for some automated routines, so I told our techs to keep using the 1903 build for now.
