Windows 10 Nov Update


After the November Win 10 update like most other stick users it bricked it.

It took a lot of effort but I found a way to get it working again.

If you download Windows 10 and create a Flash boot disc using the Windows 10 Tool it Wont work. Install fails as this version doesn't work on this hardware. Stops at 69% in my case.

What I did. The Flash drive already had the UEFI boot so that was a start. I deleted the version of windows on the flash drive. I then downloaded the old ISO version of Windows 10 that does work on the stick. I then extracted that ISO onto the flash drive.

Booted and installed than version of windows. Its now running very well. But don't update to the November (10586) version or it will brick it again.

Hello Mosc_007:

Thank you for the workaround provided.

This is known situation and we are currently working on this with Microsoft looking for a fix that will be released with future updates.

In the meantime, yes it would be better not to install this update in your system.
