Any precautions on system reinstall ?

Post by scheff » Sat Aug 10, 2019 3:31 pm

While I've some devices with successful update to WIndows 10 1903, there is one system still remaining on Windows 10 1809. First Microsoft announced that this particular notebook is not yet ready for Windows 10 1903, requiring some not yet existing driver updates of some hardware manufacturers and some fixes to the Windows 10 1903 update too. Microsofts blocking of the update to this device has been lifted on 1st August 2019. Download and 1st phase of installation succeeded. But after the reboot required by the update, another reboot happened to turn back to version 1809. The Windows Update error report wasn't very specific. Repeating this procedure with some additional sanitation steps changed error code, not the behaviour. Recommendation by other Windows 10 experts didn't help, resulting in the conclusion that it will be easier and quicker to reinstall the system fresh with a new Windows 10 1903 image. This will need to reinstall also all the applications, including SUMo Pro. Are there any precautions to take, i.e. concerning SUMo Pro license and SUMo Pro UID?

No specific precaution. You can use a new uid or keep older one if you're sure it's no longer in use
