See a glitch as it worked from updating from .755 to .819 and still working.
But new install 22H2.819 back to scracth - not working and same sh*t as .755 first install.
Have even to double create shortcuts on taskbar, not OK.
So understand your guys discouragement.

Any idea of what's needed for Android Subsystem to work if you want to run android apps on W11? (Originally posted on the gaming thread because I wanted to run android games on it.)

LOL -- I doubt anyone on the GamerOS thread wants Android on their PC. Virtual machines make their PC slow...
Depends. If the game they wanna play is on Android only, and they don't have a powerful enough phone... If you're needing a VM anyways, why not go with the MS one. But either way, there's an alternative in Google Play Games for PC (Beta). Apparently Goolag's response to Macroshit locking them out of WSA. I need to load both of them on my main PC (test PC can't use either, not enough power), and see who performs better.
 
Xbox is an Xbox, Android is a phone/tablet, Linux is a nice system, and all should not be near Windows, period!

And therein lies the problem, Windows trying to be everything. :)

Android is based on linux, FYI. With Java apps packages in a creative way. And yes, Windows should not be trying to be everything, but on the flipside, Linux should not need to be compatible with windows and android, but such is needed because monopolistic practices. Anything that makes ANY system less 'exclusive' is welcome. Even in windows.

Feature updates safeguards
can anyone explain what this option does if I enable or disable this explicitly in NTLite settings?
Also, what's the default status if I set this as Default?

Upgrade blocks, or Safeguard holds as Microsoft calls them, are designed to prevent devices from being upgraded to a new version of Windows 10 because of known compatibility issues in that new version.

Default value is to allow safeguards to block specific updates with known problems. Enabling it ignores the safeguard, so you can test what happens when WU updates your system. Safeguards are determined by MS, and stored in the cloud.

The key is DisableWUfBSafeguards, so it's a reverse setting. Enabling it turns off protection.

Default. You want to be protected.

This is why you got to search ADMX (Google admx.help + setting), see which settings have the word Disable in their reg key names.
For those the default settings are reversed. Not DisableProtection = protection enabled.

NTLite doesn't have a settings guide, so you have to be careful and research any unfamiliar settings before playing with them. Because some are backwards from normal.

this is the reg value for this setting, right?
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
"DisableWUfBSafeguards"=dword:00000001
