Or at least I think this will be pure conjecture until/unless Microsoft announces something.


What happens on systems on which the Fall Update has been already applied and upon which a Reset recovery is performed?  Does it go back to the pre-Fall-Update build of Windows 10 or is some mechanism in place that allows machines that have already been updated to access a different build if they Reset?


Perhaps someone here has already needed to do this and can give a definitive answer.  Right now I really don't know exactly what I would recommend as far as doing a Reset recovery on a post-Fall-Update state machine.

I would think that an upgraded machine would reset to the upgraded state. I'm running 1015, and wouldn't expect it to reset to the RTM, any more than I would expect it to reset to 7. But what do I know?


Obviously, there is a reason for MS having pulled to upgraded MCT. and unless we know that reason, we can't predict the outcome of a reset.
