windows 10 build 17101 17604

We’re sure Windows Insiders will be very busy this weekend testing the latest builds. As a quick reminder, Microsoft recently rolled out Windows 10 build 17101 to Fast Ring Insiders and build 17604 to Skip Ahead Insiders.

So, if you haven’t installed these builds yet, but you’re planning to, check out this article to learn more about the bugs reported by Insiders.

Windows 10 build 17101 bugs

  • Install stops

Some Insiders struggled a bit until they eventually managed to install this build. Fortunately, a quick restart solved the problem.

One glitch on install On my HP Pavillion laptop my install stopped at 66% for about 20 min then green screened. On restart I got the no hard drive error message, then restarted, went back to the update and all proceeded as normal. now have both the HP laptop and a Surface pro 3 running 17101.

  • Boot loop errors

If you already installed build 17101 on your computer and experienced boot loop issues, you’re not the only one. We don’t know if this piece of information makes you feel any better, but we wanted to let you know that it’s not just you.

So on 2/14/18, I joined insider fast level. After Insider build 17101 completed I checked all my 3rd party apps. I shut down my laptop and a half hour later powered it up to do some backup storage. My laptop went into boot loop trying to access ASUS name on a black screen.

Fortunately, we also have a piece of good news: you can quickly fix this problem by unchecking Fast Startup in Power Options.

  • Feedback Hub login fails

Access to the Feedback Hub is essential for Insiders. As a matter of fact, the whole Windows 10 Insider Program revolves around this tool. Unfortunately, the Feedback Hub is unavailable for some Insiders.

can not login to Feedback hub, I click sign in now, a window appears with accounts you’ve added to this app and my windows user id is listed, I select it (it already says sign out underneath it so some part believes I’m signed in) and click ok and nothing changes

Windows 10 build 17604 bugs

As far the Skip Ahead build is concerned, issues range from small install problems to Skype errors.

  • Install issues

If you gave up installing build 17604 because the first attempt failed, try again. Some Insiders confirmed they managed to install build 17604 after 6 attempts, so don’t give up.

Successfully updated from 17093 to build 17101 to 17604 through Windows Update only.  Took 6 attempts at the 17604, but it made it.  And it now appears to be showing me in the Skip Ahead ring.

  • Skype won’t work

Insiders also reported getting Skype errors when launching the app.

I have a pc running windows 10 ver 1709 OS build 17604-1000. I have skype desktop which works fabulously but when i click on skype which is installed from the store, it says the following error : OOPS, Skype currently unavailable, please try again later
I get no error code, all i see is an exit option.

Well folks, these are the only issues that Insiders have reported so far. As you can see, both builds are stable OS versions. No BSoD errors, crashes or random restarts have been reported.
