"This will be our last Dev Channel flight for the holidays. We’ll be back with new builds in January 2023!"

I have tried everthing listed and still not able to install[48% then black screen],Shall I hold the fire till next windows update release?,and when it will be?


Since this is a new computer, it does not have personal files yet, so it may be worth performing the installation not as a system overwrite but as a clean installation, e.g. in the Beta channel, and then switch to Dev.

@A1 I have tried this yesterday and downloaded it from cloud,And still facing the same problem my friend.

In this blog for Beta you need to use the activation kit to enable additional features.

Do you have the switch set to Dev. >?

@A1 Yes ,I have shifed to Dev and this is my current statusScreenshot 2023-01-04 1.pngScreenshot 2023-01-04 2.png


All is well , in the beta channel, our latest version.

Maybe stay with Beta for now (switch to Beta is a safe development) next builds can everything will go well.

Cheers mate and thanks for supporting 👍🏻

I had this problem earlier. Tried SFC and DISM but had the same problem. I was able to resolve it by reverting my OC CPU to default mode (I had it OC'd with AMD Ryzen Master).  Installation went through succesfully.
