With Windows 10 build 14390 for PC and Mobile, VMs and Voice Recorder remain known issues

The Windows team continues to march to the ever coveted Windows 10 Anniversary release date by issuing almost bi-weekly Insider builds. Earlier this week, Insiders were privy to build 14388 for both PC and Mobile and now at the end of the week, another build is being released to Fast Ring participants.

Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14390 for PC and Mobile is rolling out to the Fast Ring as we speak and as with most preview releases, this one brings its own set of known issues for both PC and Mobile.

Here are the known issues:

Known issues for PC

  • AWARENESS: A recent fix went into place for the Hyper-V firmware that will that affect the ability to boot Windows Server 2016 Tech Preview 5 VMs with Secure Boot enabled. A fix for TP5 builds has been developed, however, due to release schedules, the Insider Preview build changes will be released before the TP5 fix is released. During that time, if you try to boot a new TP5 VM with Secure Boot enabled, it will fail. The workaround is to disable Secure Boot during this period.

Known issues for Mobile

  • Voice Recorder does not show up consistently as an option for Call Recording. We heard your feedback and plan to release a Voice Recorder app update via the Store soon that has the fix for this issue.
  • Wallet users are prompted for a PIN twice when using tap to pay from a locked phone. You can enter their PIN twice and tap as usual once the phone is unlocked. A fix for this will come as a Wallet app update via the Store.
  • REMINDER: We have changed the backup format for Windows 10 Mobile devices to reduce the size of the backup stored in OneDrive. As a result, if you do a backup on a device running the latest Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds and move back to the released version of Windows 10 Mobile (Build 10586) and restore from your backup – your Start screen layout won’t restore and remain the default Start layout. Your previous backup also gets overwritten. If you need to go back to Build 10586 temporarily, once you are on Build 10586 you should disable backup, so it doesn’t overwrite the good backup from Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds.

The Windows team is getting close to wrapping up its Anniversary Update release and as such the number of new issues or bugs should remain relatively low.

Head over to your Update Settings page to snag the latest Fast Ring release today.

Happy downloading, Insiders!
