No M.2 drivers were integrated. Sorry .

Good luck.

But being able to remove almost all telemetry from Windows, there are still other software that can collect your data. Like Antivirus.

Do you use or trust any antivirus, or do not use it?
Trust? No! Unfortunately I believe people still need to use some form of protection. For Windows 7 I use Malwarebytes Free and Security Essentials. Change the firewall a bit and ready to go. Each person has their way of protecting themselves. But as most people say is, don't go blindly clicking at stuff without knowing what it is and it goes a long way to not getting infected or backdoored.

You're welcome. Got my backup done along with the process, so that's good.

btmaffo Good to see you, TG. Your avatar summarizes what it's like to deal with Windows these days. The past three months of updates on 7 and 8.1 have been horribly buggy and it just seems to be getting worse!

It looks like Simplix hasn't bothered adding the last couple monthly patches to his update pack, either. Good luck with your testing.

Team Grinder Hi guys how are we all? There is an indefinite delay on an ISO.

Interestingly it never appeared for me until just now - and I manually checked earlier today. That's quite a delay, even more so considering that the same bugs are still present. As the article says, it's not checked by default, so this late in the game one would think that they'd either have made sure it didn't affect the systems they were being delivered to and checked it by default or simply removed it from Windows Update.

Anyway, I've been installing security only updates and none of the bugs on the list affected my rig so I installed that one and everything is fine.
