Re: My only Win 10 laptop is now borked too

I have Win 10 in a VM (Parallels) on a Mac. It's borked, as soon as I let it update. I have a backup of the VM. Deleting the borked VM file and replacing it with the backup worked... until I allowed the update again. Deleting the borked file one more time and replacing it with the backup is working, so long as I don't allow the system to connect to the internet. If I do, Microsoft attempts to install the update, which I'm fairly sure will bork it again. The VM is of somewhat limited utility if it can't see the Internet.

I also have Win 10 on a laptop. Given the way that the VM blew up, I'm performing a complete system backup (a complete volume image using Acronis to an external drive) and will try to keep the laptop away from the internet for as long as possible. Again, the laptop is of somewhat limited utility if it can't see the internet.

Thank you so much, Microsoft.
