Win 10 Insider Preview build 17115 now released to Insiders on the Fast Ring. Microsoft blog gives details:

  • We fixed an issue where post-install at the first user-prompted reboot or shutdown, a small number of devices experienced a scenario wherein the OS fails to load properly and might have entered a reboot loop state.

Win 10 Insider Preview build 17112 now released to Insiders on the Fast Ring. Microsoft blog gives details:

Changes, improvements, fixes

  • We fixed an issue where EFI and Recovery partitions were unexpectedly listed in Defragment and Optimize Drives.
  • We fixed an issue optimizing drives in Defragment and Optimize Drives didn’t work in the last few flights.

Known issues

  • IMPORTANT: The Microsoft Store may be completely broken or disappeared altogether after upgrading to this build. Please see this forum post for details including a workaround on how to get the Microsoft Store back.
  • Post-install at the first user-prompted reboot or shutdown, a small number of devices have experienced a scenario wherein the OS fails to load properly and may enter a reboot loop state. For affected PCs, turning off fast boot may bypass the issue. If not, it is necessary to create a bootable ISO on a USB drive, boot into recovery mode, and this this will allow bypass.

NVIDIA Quadro driver 391.03

Fri, 02 Mar 2018 18:24:31 +0000

Release 390 is an ‘Optimal Drivers for Enterprise’ (ODE) branch release. ODE branches generally do not introduce new features after the branch introduction and are dedicated to long term stability for ISV certification, OEMs, and Enterprise customers.

Fixed Issues in Version R390 U3

  • [Multi-GPU Mosaic]: Displays go blank upon disabling the Mosaic topology, then the primary GPU is disabled upon restarting the system.

Windows 10 Open Issues in Version R390 U3

  • [Assimilate Scratch]: The application may crash due to a kernel exception in the NVIDIA OpenGL driver.
  • [Quadro M6000][Quadro Sync]: Unexpected flashing may appear on the display connected to the second GPU.
    Please consult your NVIDIA support team for details on resolving this behavior.
  • [Multi-GPU Mosaic][Quadro Sync]: Application corruption and possible blue-screen crash occurs when enabling WARP while Mosaic and Quadro Sync are enabled.

INF v6.094

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 04:39:33 +0000

Added support for:


Two new Win 10 Insider builds. The Microsoft blog gives details:

Part of what is mentioned there is:

A new power scheme – Ultimate Performance: Demanding workloads on workstations always desire more performance. As part of our effort to provide the absolute maximum performance we’re introducing a new power policy called Ultimate Performance. Windows has developed key areas where performance and efficiency tradeoffs are made in the OS. Over time, we’ve amassed a collection of settings which allow the OS to quickly tune the behavior based on user preference, policy, underlying hardware or workload.

This new policy builds on the current High-Performance policy, and it goes a step further to eliminate micro-latencies associated with fine grained power management techniques. The Ultimate Performance Power plan is selectable either by an OEM on new systems or selectable by a user. To do so, you can go to Control Panel and navigate to Power Options under Hardware and Sound (you can also “run” Powercfg.cpl). Just like other power policies in Windows, the contents of the Ultimate Performance policy can be customized.

As the power scheme is geared towards reducing micro-latencies it may directly impact hardware; and consume more power than the default balanced plan. The Ultimate Performance power policy is currently not available on battery powered systems.

INF v6.093

Fri, 09 Feb 2018 19:58:46 +0000

Added code names to:

NVIDIA_DEV.1BAD = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Engineering Sample"


Thu, 08 Feb 2018 01:34:40 +0000

Win 10 Insider Preview build 17093 now released to Insiders on the Fast Ring.

Game bar Improvements: We’ve given Game bar a makeover so it’s even easier to find what you’re looking for. Go to your captures, toggle your microphone and camera, and edit the title of your Mixer stream—all from new buttons on Game bar. Quickly check the time using the new clock. Choose a theme—Dark, Light, or your current Windows theme. Game bar settings are easier to use.

HDR Video on more Windows PCs: Many newer devices are capable of HDR video, but needed to be calibrated in the factory to enable HDR. Now, we are expanding HDR video access to more users via new functionality via Settings > Apps > Video playback. If the “Stream HDR video” toggle can be switched to “On”, your device can be calibrated for HDR video.

New Graphics settings for Multi-GPU Systems: In this build we’re introducing a new Graphics settings page for Multi-GPU systems that allows you to manage the graphics performance preference of your apps. You may be familiar with similar graphics control panels from AMD and Nvidia, and you can continue to use those control panels. When you set an application preference in the Windows Graphics settings, that will take precedence over the other control panel settings. Find the page by going to Settings > System > Display and scrolling down to the “Advanced graphics settings” link. (In future flights, you will see this link as “Graphics settings”.)

Windows Defender is now Windows Security in Settings: We have renamed the settings page under Settings > Update & Security from “Windows Defender” to “Windows Security. This settings page has also been redesigned – putting emphasis on the various protection areas to keep you safe and secure on your PC.

Streamlined Pairing and Connecting to Certain Bluetooth Devices: Starting with this build, Windows enables users to start pairing and connecting supported devices in a single click. When these devices are ready to pair and detected to be in range, Windows shows a notification to the user allowing them to quickly and conveniently start the pairing process.
