Η Microsoft is getting ready to release the new Windows 10 April 2018 Update next week. As we know from previous big company updates, this installation is expected to take place gradually.
In other words, everyone will not be able to install the update from day one, though there will be manual downloads for those who do not want to wait in line and have the knowledge to deal with potential compatibility problems.
Below we will show you how to install Windows 10 April 2018 Update directly in two different ways.
In the first way, you will need to register with the most stable Windows Insider ring and let your computer be updated.
The Ring containing the RTM in the Insiders program is called Release Preview, or preview version.
To sign up for Windows Insider, you need a Microsoft account.
If you have a company account and is connected to the computer you want to update, follow the path: Settings - Update & Security - Windows Insider. You will see a Getting started button that starts the process of registering your computer to download new builds of Windows 10.
Click this button and you will be prompted to log in to the Microsoft account. For local accounts, you will need a name and password to complete the process.
After you sign in, you'll need to select the ring you want to join.
There are three options: Only Previews, Fixed and slow releases and the next version of Windows (Skip Ahead).
Click on the first option called and click Continue.
A confirmation screen will appear and you will have to restart your system. After restarting, if you check the updates, you will see 'Feature update to Windows 10, version 1803', which is April 2018 Update If you do not see it wait a few hours and try again.
The following way does not require a Windows Insider account.
Files are already available on Microsoft servers, but they are in ESD format. Below we will see how you can convert ESD to ISO so that you can install or upgrade your system.
Initially you should download it Windowws 10 1803 build 17133 ESD. The links are contained in the following XML. Download the file and open it with your browser. Select the ESD you are interested in:
Once you download the ESD, you will need to convert it to an ISO file before you can pass it on to a DVD or create a bootable USB stick. Conversion can be done with ESD Decrypter Wimlib. Extract the files to a folder and place the ESD in the same folder.
In the folder you will find decrypt.cmd, right-click on it and 'Run as administrator'
In the window that appears, select 'Create Full ISO with Standard install.wim'. Once ready, you can burn ISO to a DVD, or create a bootable USB using it Microsoft's Windows USB / DVD Download Tool.
These few, just for the hurry. For all the others, well do it that you choose to wait. Windows 10 April 2018 Update may have been advertised as a functional one with many extras but no one knows how it will behave in all systems. So the logic delayed as much as I can update, seems to be the most wise choice.
