Cumulative Update for Windows 11 Insider Preview (10.0.22631.2262) (KB5029339)

Copper Contributor

Hi, the Cumulative Update for Windows 11 Preview is keep asking "Pending Restart" and with no "restart Now" option. As a result, I do manual restart, and after I did the restart, it is still showing the "Pending Restart".

 

Any suggestions on how to fix the problem?

Thanks for sharing!

Try making sure PowerShell or CMD shows it is still update pending - https://www.geekbits.io/how-to-view-a-pending-reboot-in-windows/

Then restart via CMD: shutdown /r /t 60

Also, it seems that is a older KB update so maybe try manually installing this one to override the other one.

You could also try pressing "pause updates" and re check for updates and clearing the Software Distribution Folder!

Thanks,
