Reminder: Update for Windows 10 MWS PCs (staff only)

07 November 2017

Staff who use an MWS PC running Windows 10 will need to make sure they are running the latest version, which is "Windows 10 Creators update".

If your PC is running an earlier version of Windows 10 called "November Update" you must upgrade to the Creators version as soon as possible.

The November Update version will no longer receive vital security fixes and will be unsupported. By upgrading now, you can do so at your own convenience prior to any forced upgrade being pushed out by Computing Services.

Firstly, you will need to check which version of Windows 10 you are running. Instructions for doing this, and for upgrading to the latest version, are available from the self-service portal knowledge base: https://liverpool.service-now.com/kb_view.do?sysparm_article=KB0010613

If you require assistance with checking, or upgrading, your Windows 10 MWS installation please contact the CSD Service Desk via servicedesk.liverpool.ac.uk.

If you are running an earlier version of Windows and wish to install Windows 10 on your MWS PC you can do so by creating an installer on a USB stick using the MWS Installer utility available from Install University Applications. Instructions to help you do this are available in the self-service portal knowledge base: https://liverpool.service-now.com/kb_view.do?sysparm_article=KB0010282.
