Windows 10 build 18885 issues

Many Windows Insiders started downloading Windows 10 build 18885 on their systems right after it was announced. Most of them used the ISO file to test the build.

This build brings a long list of known issues for Fast Ring Insiders. Moreover, users are also reporting some additional issues that Microsoft failed to detected before pushing the red button.

Windows 10 build 18885 reported issues

1. Evaluation copy error message

One user reported that he encountered an annoying evaluation copy error message. This message was noticed by both Fast and Slow Ring Insiders. However, it was not visible to Release preview Ring Insiders. The message states:

This content is currently on an older release of Windows. If you select this, we will continue to send you content from your current release and will move you over as soon as possible

At the time of writing this article, there is no official fix from Microsoft to resolve the issue. Windows Insiders are trying some workarounds on their own.

I got that on Fast, I changed it to Skip then checked back & it had”reverted” back to Fast & message disappeared,

You can try the above-mentioned fix. However, it is not a guaranteed solution as it may not work for some users.

2. Green Screen of Death bugs

Another user reported that the installation failed with a GSOD error code. He rebooted his system and the ran into error 0xc1900101. 

The user managed to create an ISO file for build 18885 and the installation successfully completed with this method. 

3. Intel 4000 Display driver blocked

The update caused Intel 4000 display driver to stop working. One user explained the issue in the following manner:

My update of 18885 from 18875 went fine. However, after the update my Intel 4000 Display driver was blocked (Code 48). It had been running fine on 18875 and for a long time before that. A device uninstall and reinstall from the previously working Intel .exe didn’t help.

Windows Insiders already reported these bugs on the Feedback Hub. We expect Microsoft to roll out the corresponding fixes in the first week of May.
