How to get the Windows 10 May 2019 Update


Beginning today, the May 2019 Update is available for customers who would like to install the latest release. If you are ready to install the update, open your Windows Update settings (Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update) and select Check for updates. Once the update appears, you can select Download and install now. (Note: You may not see Download and install now on your device as we are slowly throttling up this availability, while we carefully monitor data and feedback). Once the download is complete and the update is ready to install, we’ll notify you so that you can pick the right time to finish the installation and reboot, ensuring the update does not disrupt you. This new ‘Download and install now’ capability is available for devices running Windows 10, version 1803 or version 1809 that also have the May 21st updates (or later) installed. For more information on the new user update controls and how to get the May 2019 Update, watch this video.


Update: In order to have the "Download and install now" option, install the cummulative update first. See Microsoft Cumulative Update Released for Windows 10 Versions 1803 & 1809

Although Windows 10 Version 1903 was released in May, it was done so as a "targeted deployment". As of September 26, 2019, Version 1903 has finally been released for "broad deployment". From Windows 10, version 1903 and Windows Server, version 1903 - Windows Release Information | Microsoft Docs:
Current status as of September 26, 2019:
Windows 10, version 1903 (the May 2019 Update) is designated ready for broad deployment for all users via Windows Update.

As devices running the Home, Pro, and Pro for Workstation editions of Windows 10, version 1803 (the April 2018 Update) will reach end of service on November 12, 2019, we are broadly updating these devices, as well as those running earlier versions of Windows 10 that are past end of service, to keep these devices both supported and receiving monthly updates. If you are not offered the Windows 10, version 1903 feature update, please check below for known issues and safeguard holds that may affect your device.

We recommend commercial customers running earlier versions of Windows 10 begin broad deployments of Windows 10, version 1903 in their organizations.

As a result, Microsoft has released this Compatibility update for installing Windows 10 version 1903: September 26, 2019 which makes improvements to make the installation of Version 1903 easier. Some of the improvements included are as follows:
  • Addresses an issue in the migration file (.mig) which may cause an error to occur after you upgrade.
  • Addresses an issue that causes a black screen when you try to create a new virtual machine (VM). This issue occurs after VMWare version 15.10 or an earlier version is installed and then you upgrade.
  • Addresses incompatible third-party drivers that may cause issues when you upgrade.
  • Addresses an issue during the upgrade in which Korean characters may be clipped or unreadable.
  • Addresses an issue that causes the ESD file to be unnecessarily redownloaded during the upgrade.
  • Addresses hard link issues when you perform an offline upgrade.

As indicated in the Bleeping Computer article, Windows 10 Version 1903 Now in Broad Deployment, Available to Everyone:
If you are not offered the Windows 10 version 1903 update, then you should check the Windows 10 Health Dashboard for any known hardware blocks.
There are currently known blocks for NEC laptops with Intel and Broadcom Wi-Fi adapters and certain Intel Rapid Storage Technology Drivers (Intel RST).
