Rozz34825dWindows update just corrupted a fresh installed Windows 10 👌
i've had the update blown off (because yeah, disabling doesn't do anything, but you can blow it off by changing like 3 registry values and renaming 2 exe files or so) for about the past year, and i've never been happier with my windows 10 <3
this "needs to be updated constantly otherwise it's dead!" culture is stupid :(
Kairpooph69025dThe worst of it is you just want to shut down and call it a night after working for 12 hours straight but nooooooo Windows is preparing updates please don't turn your machine off goddamn sumbitch piece of shit on a motherfucker asshole then it doesn't switch off for 30 minutes because it wanted to install the updates but was still downloading the fucking updates hrrgrggrgrggrggrggrrrrrrrrrrr *foaming mouth*
Ubergeek24825dIn my opinion for 99.99 % of Windows users the updates are a really good thing. At least it works fine for me.
The last situation where an update crashed a PC was some years ago when my father switched off the PC during update (even when it was stated in fat letters “Do not turn off your PC”) - comment from my father was “It took so long...” After that nothing worked and I had to reinstall everything. So sometimes the problem is sitting in front of the PC...
What should I say...
kamen521625dSet up Active Hours and stop whining.
netikras2342225dtoo many fucks given
frogstair1272825dI always wonder how people who use Linux always manage to fuck up their windows install. Mine has been running steady for 4 years now, no hiccups, no nothing
USB Stick. External harddrive. Anything with enough space.
Get newest ISO from Windows, put it on ANOTHER USB stick.
Then nuke everything.
Update Bios, Firmware, everything.
Start Windows Install.
Shift … F10...
Clear the disk with diskpart.
Restart, finish installation.
First backup (full including partition table).
Second backup (full including partition table).
Label the stick / harddrive. Put it somewhere safe.
NoMad436125dI hope you've got enough stamina for all that fucking!!
Parzi867323dPSA: just disable the fucking update service and shut the hell up, it's windows and most of you have intel processors, you're exactly as vulnerable patched vs unpatched. "i can't it's a work laptop" boot disk or sethc.exe replacement and disable it via registry key
