Hello Windows Insiders,
There's an new bug that has been discovered and we want to share the impact with you.
What: WinRE (Windows Recovery Environment) is broken in build 17713.
Who: Any user running build 17713
Why: Root cause is being investigated [TBD]
What does this mean for you as an Insider?
- If you attempt to reset, refresh, or use the advanced recovery environments on your PC, these actions will not function as expected.
- If your machine ends up in an unbootable state (OS repeatedly fails to load and puts you into the Advanced Repair environment), you will not be able to recover will need to reinstall/re-image the device.
- Rollback (to your prior build) *does work* as expected when launched through Settings.
We are actively investigating this issue and are working to create a fix that will be available in a future build. More details to come as available.
Thank you as always,
