The latest Windows 10 builds are simply awesome. They pack a long list of new features, improvements and bug fixes that prepare the OS for the upcoming Windows 10 Creators Update release.

As expected, the newest Windows 10 build also brings issues of its own, apart from the official list of known issues that Microsoft published. In this article, we’re going to list the most frequent Windows 10 build 15007 issues so that you know what bugs you may encounter once this build hits your computer.

Windows 10 build 15007 PC bugs

Windows 10 build 15007 install issues

The classic install issues affect build 15007 as well. Actually, it appears that build 15002 and 15007 share a common installation bug. Users report that the install process fails with error 0xC1900101-0x20017.

15002 downloads and goes through the install and config and on this re-start, it just quietly comes back to life as 14986.  It has thrown the error as show.  I recall on 1 occasion it gave a BSOD and restarted. […]

15007 has just done the same thing.  A new notification icon is showing with 1 new entry bit it refuses to show the notification.  The dropout occurred at the same spot.

Other Insiders report that build 15007 won’t download at all. The progress meter won’t advance at all and stays that way for hours on end. It appears that this particular issue is prevalent for Surface devices. The update appears to start downloading and then remains at 0%.

Audio bugs, high CPU usage and Edge crashes

These three issues are caused by the same bug. Fortunately, there’s a quick workaround that you can use: Simply paste the following commands in Command Prompt:

Rmdir /s %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Spectrum\PersistedSpatialAnchors
Shutdown /r

Build 15007 breaks graphics cards

Although a rare issue, some users report that build 15007 cripples their graphics cards, leaving their computers unable to display any image on the screen.

Windows 10 Mobile build 15007 bugs

Windows 10 Mobile doesn’t display numeric keyboard

Windows 10 Mobile displays a QWERTY keyboard to enter the PIN code instead of the numeric keyboard.

On Windows build 15007 mobile, on the lock screen where it asks you to put in your pin instead of the microsoft account password, before it would just display a numeric keyboard to enter the four digit pin, now when i unlock my phone, it displays a full qwerty keyboard to enter the pin. Is there any way to fix it or is this a bug?

Build 15007 restarts Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL

Insiders report that Windows 10 Mobile build 15007 constantly restarts Lumia 950 phones. Turning on battery saver may reduce the number of random restarts, but this solution doesn’t work for all Insiders.

I had updated yesterday to build 14998 by chance and today updated to build 15007 on my Lumia 950, since then i had 7 restarts untill now.

YouTube still doesn’t work on Edge

Windows 10 Mobile users still can’t access Google or YouTube on Microsoft Edge. You can use private tabs on Edge as a workaround, but this solution doesn’t work for all users.

Well I’m screwed, I couldn’t wait. So yeah the bug still exists on this build. But error on edge now shows TLS incorrect. So at least we’re getting somewhere?

Build 15007 kills cellular data

Windows 10 Mobile users also report that cellular data doesn’t work on build 15007. Restarting the phone doesn’t help. Does this issue sound familiar?

And my cellular data just died. Refuses to come back on. Time to report a bug. And restore my phone :/

Build 15007 causes phones to freeze

There are also some very unlucky Windows 10 Mobile users who can barely use their phones after installing Windows 10 build 15007. More specifically, phones running build 15007 constantly freeze.

These least two build completely wrecked my phone. Random reboots and freezes. I had hoped this build would fix the problem from the last build where my phone would freeze when being below 50% battery and being connected to a charger, but nope- somehow this build is even worse. I’d recommend staying off the fast ring for a while.
