Refreshed PC. Update show there’s no updates.

I refreshed my PC yesterday, on the insiders preview. It went back to 1607, which expired on 5/1/2017. So now it will reset every couple hours.

I go to update it, it show there’s no updates. It’s just download some virus definitions, Nvidia driver, the monthly MSRT.

But no Windows updates.

How do I get the updates on the fast ring?

Also, I go to setting, account. It says to verify account. I click on verify account, it just closes settings.

After I get all my settings, and download thing I use and get the latest’s updates. I’ll use the built in system image tool to create a system image. So If I restore it again. I won’t have to go and redownload everything again, and have to go and fix system settings, and app settings.

It’s annoying to have to redownlod everything and configure all these apps. Even though it’s not a lot of apps. It’s still annoying.

Especially the system settings and the layout, my desktop and taskbar icons and settings.

Windows 10 should have something where you can backup your settings.

Even though I AM the admin. Some stuff I try to access is saying this app has been blocked for your protection.

Edge on this version, is so slooooooooooooooooooooow. IE is faster.

    <p>Being an expired release, it's possible that it's locked out of WU. I'd snag the media creation tool to get a new ISO and use Rufus to make a USB stick so you always have one around. </p>

    <p>Is it possible that you're running an old Insider build of 1607? Only those have an expiration date after which it will restart every few hours. The regular version will keep working, even when it's EOL.</p><p><br></p><p>That could also explain why you don't see security updates. </p>

    <p>I get it working now. Used the setup.exe in the media creation tool.</p><p>It was better the the refresh, and ISO. With the iso, every would have been deleted. Refresh doesn't allow you to also keep app, only files.</p><p>So with the media creation tool, I not only had the option to keep my files, but also my app.</p><p><br></p><p>I was just checking my library on windows. 99% of stuff I downloaded was junk, that I deleted a long long time ago.</p><p><br></p><p>But now it's just downloading 17704. That wasn't available in the media creation.</p><p>But now everything works good.</p>

    <p>I think while I did the setup.exe instead of installing from the iso, it installed to my HDD instead of my SSD. Because every is slow now.</p><p>I ran crystal mark and read and write was 40-50mb. </p><p>So how do I tell if the OS is on my SSD or HDD?</p>
