    Being Friday afternoon here, I could restore my machines from an image taken on Sunday night, but I haven't noticed any problems so far. Hopefully M$ can repair their error in releasing this update to the wrong machines if needed.... but then again. :isay: :gack:

    I've just gone upstairs to update the Win 10 Pro machine I have up there.
    I wasn't offered the Autopilot update.. and that was on a Pro machine, so perhaps they have pulled it altogether ?

    After reading later posts in the thread you linked above it would appear so.

    So what's the verdict? Restore an image or leave the autopilot installed if it does'nt create any problem?

    As I understand it from online documentation, it does not matter. All Windows versions starting with 1703 already have Autopilot feature present. It is used only if certain conditions are met (explained in Autopliot Requirements document) so updating it won't hurt - the files will be updated but the feature remains inactive.
    ...
    Also, has anyone noticed that the cumulative also updates the Autopilot feature? -
    And thus probably supersedes KB4523786. So this may be the reason why they pulled the update.
    Does not mean that I'm right, just trying to offer a different perspective.

    EDIT: When first batch of updates is installed (Autopilot and NET) the build is upped to 440. Installing the optional cumulative gets it to 449. So my 'superseding' assumption may be correct.
    Or not :D

    As far as the 1903 home AutoPilot update foobar goes, appears Windows Update can't differentiate an applicable update by installed OS version? Hell, even a MS Catalog downloaded update install can do that.

    Now for the real scary stuff. What if MS was to push an inapplicable update that could totally bork your existing Win installation.

    I did not perceive any change to my system, but I've decided to restore anyway, and the autopilot was not offered the second time around. I think if something is not needed is better to dispense with it...

    I still think this is because the updated version of Autopilot is already included in the cumulative. Separate update for Autopilot indeed looks like it was offered by mistake, but as I said imo (from the documentation) this is not a big deal.
    I generally agree and I am also on the fence of restoring an image. But decided to wait for a while (actually have no time to deal with that atm).

    It looks like that post has been edited slightly.
    There is no mention of, "If you have already installed the update, it will not affect you."

    Weird, and good catch, he must have edited it... I just copy/pasted what was there.

    I don't believe that is the case. It was probably just a bork by whoever set the patch to go out. I once worked for a company that hosed thousands of customer systems with a patch because they forgot to do a conditional check on the target object being replaced. I guess no less scary but I'm sure they can differentiate the systems. It's just a question as to whether they remember to do so. Your concern is no less valid, but probably for a different reason.

    Personally, I decided to uninstall the update and so far I haven't noticed any problems.
