Deployment of Windows 10 1809/Windows Server 2019 Paused by Microsoft

Update 2018-11-13: Microsoft has resumed the rollout of Windows 10 1809, Windows Server 2019 and Windows Server, version 1809. The ISO’s are now available to download from the Volume Licensing Service Center once again.

Hi all,

Given I’ve posted my usual guides on how to deploy Windows 10 1809 with MDT, I thought it important to also post that Microsoft has chosen to delay the rollout of Windows 10 1809 and Windows Server 2019 for the time being due to some users reporting that files are missing after an upgrade.

Here’s the full message on the Volume License site:

“We have paused the rollout of the latest feature update to Windows 10 and Windows Server, inclusive of versions 1809 and 2019, for all users as we investigate isolated reports of users missing some files after updating. We have removed all associated media from download sites and plan to refresh it with a new release. If you have already downloaded media, please don’t install it and wait until more information is available to proceed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We will provide an update when refreshed media is available. For reference, we also have a KB article with additional information here.

Known issues are documented here.


I take great care to test my ideas and make sure my articles are accurate before posting, however mistakes do slip through sometimes. If you’d like to get in touch with me please use the comments, Twitter (you can tweet me and my DMs are open) or my contact form.

I hope this article helps you out, please consider supporting my work here. Thank you.
