Unsupported disk layout for UEFI firmware, 0xc1900201
When I try to install the W10 version 2004 feature update I get the following error: Windows cannot be installed because this PC has an unsupported disk layout for UEFI firmware. 0xc1900201 I have a 2018 Dell XPS 15 9570 laptop.32GB, 1.0TB SSD, most current BIOS update from Dell that shows UEFI as the BIOS mode. Microsoft is telling me I have to do a full scratch install of the current shipping version of W10 and then install the 2004 feature update, thus, I have to do a full backup and restore, then reinstall all of the apps. Is this actually necessary? I'm hoping there's another way to do this. I've worked for software companies in the past and often times Tech Support resorts to a full remiage of the cmputer in order to fix a problem. Are they just lazy or for real? Your help is greatly appreciated.
Update failures for Window 10
Hi everyone Is anyone experiencing updates failures for 'cumulative updates for Windows 10 version 2004 for x64-based systems #KB4550936. This has failed four times or perhaps even five times. I have gone through the usual routes of trying troubleshooter - unsuccessful. When I have clicked on the support thread, I am taken to a landing page which indicates 'sorry page not found'. I have to think that this will be fixed. I would just like to understand what has failed and why. I am a curious person. Views anyone?
A suggested Update To The New "News & Interest" Feature
Hello Members, I've had a chance to explore the New "News And Interest" feature for awhile now, and so far I Really Enjoy It 👍. However I'm just wondering if Microsoft would or could Implement a way so that once we open the feature by clicking on it we could also "Resize" the open pop up by grabbing the side of the window with our mouse. By doing so, I think we would be able to regain some valuable screen real estate by placing the little news articles boxes One on Top of the other instead of two side by side. 🤔 PS... Yes! I've just finished sending MS Feedback on this suggestion. I'm Just curious what you may think about this Idea?...¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 😊 Like/Dislike?

"The device is currently in use"
I try to safely eject my USB device and get the message "The device is currently in use. Close any programs or windows that might be using the device, and then try again." I get this message 99% of the time - even when no applications or windows are open. Why is this happening? Is there a way to get around this? I never get this message at work or school, unless the USB device is actually in use. I do log in as a standard, non-administrator user. I only elevate to administrator privileges when necessary like installing applications (I also only temporarily elevate privileges; I never log on as an administrator). So when I get the "The device is currently is use." message, I right-click on start button and click Disk Management. I know that I can safely remove the device by going into Disk Management and taking the device offline. However, I cannot elevate to administrator privileges to get into Disk Management. I get the following message: "You are logged on as a standard user. You can view device settings in Device Manager, but you must be logged on as an administrator to make changes." I don't want to log on as an administrator, but I do want to temporarily elevate to administrator privileges to take the device offline. Is there a way to do this? When I'm logged on as standard user and want to install an application, I get prompted for an administrator password. I want the same thing to happen when I go to Device Manager and other areas that require administrator rights.
