Does anyone have dual boot Linux/ Windows and also have problems with the slow-ass periodic updates Windows shoves down your throat, needs to do multiple restarts for, but gets stuck at the grub bootloader?

It's really annoying the next time you need your PC quickly you're forced to standby for 2 hours.

    I never had this issue with dual boot, it only updated by schedule, which I confirmed by looking at the changelog. The updates usually took about 2-10 minutes, and we're infrequent, like once a month or two. The system has to reboot during upgrades to apply them properly.

    What might be the cause of your problem is you disabling a setting that downloads updates in the background, but didn't disable the updates. So you are waiting around for it to download the updates first, and then install them.

    @dudeking thanks I don't remember if I did, but I'll have to look into that

    Hmm.... Seems to me like disabling Windows updates would solve all your problems...

    Nope, sorry, I don't have that issue :) https://unraid.net/

    I just connect with nomachine/x2go to my linux machines and use windows most of the time, that way windows is always updated and I still have all the beauty of linux.

    @RememberMe tried a bunch, it is the only one that just works (clipboard, remote cursor, fullscreen, audio) and also is fast and artifacts free haha

    Installed Windows on an M.2 SSD and haven't had an issue at all since. Linux is on a normal SSD so it's fast enough too.

    Not sure what bootloader you're using, but I use grub2 and have it set to autoselect the last booted OS after 10 seconds. This allows me to walk away while updates are running and it boots back into windows to finish up.

    Remind me to restart this thing before I go to sleep.

    I know there's a way to make grub remember the last entry that it booted to. You should look that up
