Intel Compute Stick V1 update issue

This is not Rise Vision related problem, but people need to be aware of this. Today a message from Microsoft popped up on one of my screens stating that Windows 10 version I am running on that device is too old and suggested updating it. I know that we cannot prevent critical updates, just delay them, so I thought, alright, let's do it. Yeah, right.... not so fast. I was not able update Windows 10 because there was not enough free space on it. The update needed 16GB that apparently were not there. I canceled the procedure, and I know it will eventually come back again. Has anyone experienced anything like that? I wonder if microSD would help solving this issue.

On the side note... there was this article: http://www.extremetech.com/computing/230794-woman-wins-10000-judgment-against-microsoft-for-forced-w... ))) Should we all cooperate in case more issues as such hit the community and present Microsoft with class action lawsuit?

Darius,

I was reading about that same lawsuit yesterday. I'm curious if other users are going to follow suit and if this will change Microsoft's rollout procedure of auto upgrades to Win 10. 

What version of Windows 10 was on this device?

I wonder if a clean install and then upgrading would work. I know Windows 10 has the clean install feature now where you can completely start from scratch. Its not ideal to wipe it clean but starting from scratch could get you the hard drive space you need for the update. I had to do that on a test device i had. 

Lastly if you have 32gb devices with windows 10, you will see this issue more often. I dont like these build updates at all but thats what microsoft started doing. I started on 1507 Windows 10 build and updated to 1511. In august the next build will come out. Also it be good to let users know that a new build update is coming. That way users can expect it. Anyway its another thing we all have to get use to for now.

This actually was clean install. This little device had some rough times... basically I it accidentally was wiped clean so I could put Ubuntu on it. Did not work for me as RV was constantly freezing on it. So, I came back to Windows 10. But I needed to use downloaded OS image from Windows, which is not activated yet. That may also have something to do with it. Anyways, not that important as it is one of my testing devices.

Was there any indication as to why it was freezing using Ubuntu? Was there anything obvious in the logs or system monitor?

I have no answer to this. I created a topic about that, but nobody advised me to check the logs or anything like that. And myself, I am not familiar with Ubuntu at all. I gave it a try, it did not work out for me, and I am not going back again. That train is gone )))

Sorry Darius, that would have been the first place I would have advised you to look :).

I know Ubuntu and graphics drivers can sometime be a pain. I have one I hook up to my 4K monitor now and then and man alive...it's slow as a snail.
