Known issues in Windows 10 Insider Build 14383

  • If you are seeing a notification pop-up in Windows 10 Insider Build 14383 once a day that started on 7/1 saying that your Windows evaluation copy expires on 7/15/2016, don’t worry this is a superfluous dialog and your OS won’t expire. The dialog will also go away soon.
  • 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.
