Windows 10 1709 Update Deployment Posted on March 28th, 2018 by

Gustavus Technology Services will begin deployment of the Microsoft Windows 10 1709 update on Gustavus owned employee computers running an older version of Windows 10 on April 5th.  This update from Microsoft will happen automatically and includes several feature updates and security patches to enhance the security of the computer.

Due to the large size of this update, we recommend manually running it before April 5th to ensure that the process occurs at a convenient time. To manually run this update, open Software Center from the start menu and click install on the “Feature update to Windows 10 (business editions), version 1709” option listed in the Updates section.  A confirmation dialog will pop up stating that this will update the operating system. Please click install on this dialog. When the update finishes installing, please reboot the computer.

The update is larger than the typical Windows Update so it may take longer than expected to complete the reboot process.  Please do not interrupt the update process by shutting down or forcing a restart on the computer. After the update, you may see the “We’re getting things ready..” screen during login and the background colors may revert to the default settings.

If you have any questions, please contact the Technology Helpline (507-933-6111 or
