Slow Ring Users Are Getting Screwed

2

I on the Slow Ring and I started getting a message saying that I have to install a new build of Windows, and if I don’t, my PC will automatically reboot every few hours and will eventually fail to start.

The problem is that I’m on the Slow Ring.  There is NO new build on the Slow Ring.  There is literally nothing to install unless I switch rings which I would rather not do.

If MS wants to encourage users to upgrade to newer builds, that’s fine.  But they have to provide newers builds.  They shouldn’t be forcing people to update to builds that don’t exist.

    What build are you on? The current Slow Ring builds should last on into 2017.
