Microsoft advises against manual installation of W10 Creators Update

Microsoft came out and said that it's not a good idea for non-tech savvy users to force an installation of the Windows 10 Creators Update. As with the previous release, Microsoft is rolling out the Creators Update in waves to ensure the new code doesn't break compatibility.

This approach helps to minimize problems as it prevents the installation of the Creators Update on systems with known or potential issues. As such, the software giant recommends regular users to wait until he Creators Update gets offered automatically:
For example, the big update has already run into problems with some types of Broadcom Bluetooth LE radios: the code was killing connections with accessories, apparently. So Microsoft stopped pushing automatic downloads to computers carrying that hardware. However, the operating system can still be fetched manually if folks really want it.

In other words, if people fetch and install the software by hand, they will bypass Redmond's blockades, and potentially run aground on their hardware.

"We continue to recommend (unless you're an advanced user who is prepared to work through some issues) that you wait until the Windows 10 Creators Update is automatically offered to you," John Cable, director of program management for Windows servicing and delivery, said on Tuesday.
