    Your getting the SYSTEM control panel page or the 'System Information' screen?

    Yeah, me too, I get the old-style System Info by typing into Start Menu.

    I can say, however, that trying to get drivers via Device Manager in 19042.608 has been fully deprecated on here. So at least that "works" by way of "not working." :confused:

    Is this Feedback Hub-worthy, do you think?

    I think that workaround is for other Window. It opens this:

    Yes I know that, but the BC report gave the impression that system info wasn't available anymore in the old system information format unless you used that workaround.
    In fact using the start flag way is even quicker that going to control panel etc.

    Yes that's true. Also new window for System shows same data as the old one. It's just new interface...

    Sorry for the confusion. Our story was about the SYSTEM control panel, not the system information program.

    This is the one we are referring to:

    Only a guess but based on previous experience I'll say somewhere between Thursday evening and next Tuesday. Could be sooner, maybe longer, but usually a few days, especially since 20H2 is now public.

    Good to know. Looking forward to installing it to test it out at work.

    Just for info.
    As I wasn't offered 20H2 on one of my machines I decided to do it through the 'Update Now' button which uses the update assistant instead of the iso.

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10

    95 minutes later :D it is all finished and I am back on the desktop with everything running fine.

    It gave me an opportunity to clean and dust the house while it was running (thanks Microsoft :thumb: !!!)

    This is pretty much the experience I had. I manually updated a couple of PCs in the office thankfully while the employees were out. I was surprised at how long it took.

    Wow that is crazy. When I got it offered via Windows Update it was super quick to install and update.

    The odd thing is that 20H2 uses about 4gb less disk space than 2004. I'm not used to that from Microsoft.

    Is that right? It is the same for me. Also the ISO for 20H2 was bigger than 2004 for me.

    Strange times man lol.

    Same here, less than 5 minutes for whole process to finish.
