    Well Windows 10 has been trolling me forever with updates. (what's new)
    But I seriously thought they were taking the piss when this happened:
    aa.png

    you wot?? Update assistant said it already GOT the update, reset and applied, re-setup basic options and all..
    Then windows update got the same update, failed 4 times (using a tonne of mobile data while doing it, going from scratch each time) finally worked and then did its reset again.
    Windows 10 is up to date (as of this photo), and I can set about actually putting stuff on it.

    I wasn't happy about the new default desktop of 1903, I DIDN'T SAY CHANGE MY DESKTOP PICTURE!.. A blocky, pixelated mess of retina searing baby blue.
    If I was running 800 by 600 on a 30 year old, 14" monitor from across a room with my glasses off I could still see those blocks, at 1440 and 4K it looked simply disgustingly amateurish, so I went back to old default picture axing my tasteful black and grey affair.

    Booting is faster than ever, and I haven't had any problems now it's all up to date.

    Now with it working perfectly FINALLY, I'm not sure I want to get the 1909 update to screw it all up again :lol: might wait a few weeks, because it's working perfectly right now

    One thing I've found is that "Fast boot" actually slows down booting on SSD drives (or is at least the same in terms of speed).
    And it's also problematic in terms of not allowing the computer to apply updates on shutdown (you have to 'restart' instead), and creating this messy long pause between the screen turning off and the machine actually turning off while it writes the ram to the disk - meaning many people will acccidentally turn it off at the wall before the machines fully shut down. Bad design.
    I think its the new readyboost.

    it's just another failed sleep/hibernation state imo.

    "Fast boot" is one of many options I check after patching. I always disable it but it keeps getting enabled. I check the security and privacy settings as well from top to bottom.

    Update history is a lot more detailed (finally) with sub-sections and date stamps.

    Pretty sure I have disabled hibernation and sleep in advanced power configurations. I'll double check.

    For those taking the plunge it seems things are a lot more organised this time around (from the community perspective) If you're experiencing any issues installing the Windows 10 November 2019 Update, this guide will help you to troubleshoot and fix virtually any problem.;

    I've done that procedure on countless customer computers, the ones who all invested in < 120GB SSD drives a few years back :lol:

    Disabling hibernation gives you back some disk space, but Fast Boot isn't hibernation.
    It uses a partial hibernation to avoid reinitialising some Win10 subsystems at boot (I believe).
    Hibernation is also a bit pointless on an SSD, doesn't save much time.

    This video from an ex-microsoft employee is interesting:
    TLDR: Bad management, dumb cost-cutting measures, incompetent upper management.

    well, my system is a 1st gen 1336 I7 960, I DO notice a difference in boot time with hybernation, over not, with a brand new samsing SSD.
    so yea. that's why. and having shit already then when I power on instead of loading shit.

    I don't need hibernation as I never turn my PC off.

    Hibernation and standby and the two things I basically turn off straight away on a new build. Unnecessary for me, and I've found them buggy.

    I'm a big fan of Hibernation on my laptop, go out of my way to turn it on for when I shut the lid of my device.
