Is there a solution for this issue? I'm having the exact same problem and would appreciate any assistance. I've tried various fixes, but I'm unable to leave the Dev channel (all other options are grayed out). Any help would be greatly appreciated.@erjainak

Windows 11 Clean Installation (


@A1 I encounter the same problem every time i want to install the update10.0.26058.1100. It freezes at the start up screen of the spinning circle. then after a whole night I have to force restart the computer, and it freezes again.  After several attempts, the windows start screen says it's restoring and repairing my  computer, then it is back to my original version of 26040. Reinstalling is easy, but it takes hours to find all apps back. Sometimes something important is forgotten and wiped during the clean installation, which will be disastrous.  


I understand, but this compilation on multiple computers is a big problem, I haven't seen a solution to fix it now, maybe the next ISO will be better.

@A1 Yes so I have postponed update until the next build. It might more frequently happen to computers with amd cpus.
