Recent Insider builds


It appears, until now, that I’ve had an excellent run with Insider builds. My Surface Pro 2 has kept chugging along and using all the features as they were described in the changelogs.

…until now. Build#16215 had an issue that removed the ability to connect to wifi and bluetooth for SP1 and SP2 devices. Build#16226 has a 5-secondly brainfart trying to start the multi-language input systems meaning that the current app loses focus frequently and I cannot use the on-screen keyboard or the pen. Both of these are usability-breakers so I’ve kept on with the older build for the moment. I hope I can get a running build soon and use all these cool new features!

Anyway, critique and discuss!

    That’s the caveat with prerelease builds. Sometimes it seems to defy logic that something which worked right for ages suddenly breaks, but this is complex software. If a change is made to a dependency, it can wreck a whole subsystem!

    In reply to MacNala:

    Installation completed as normal.

    Now, I just tried to reformat with the latest official ISO (build 16251) from a USB stick and will not boot at all (just blue Windows logo, USB stick light flashes, then reboots). Does anybody know if the SAFE_OS phase of boot changed after 16199? I can't even get the installation started!

      In reply to Jefe1: I am sorry I cannot help you. Good luck I think a complete clean installation might give some indication of why it is happening if it fails to load it should give a reason or even juts a code.
