The quick setup can sometimes cause issues. But I don't think your issues are related to that.

Did you give enough system resources to your VM?
The VM has 300GB assigned to it, total size at present is 72GB

oh wait...the issue only happens during native boot from the VHDX?
The VHDX is the problem child. Although it boots and runs without issue apart from the store not updating and there is an issue on both with defender updates

Don't confuse a VM with a native boot VHDX, the two are not the same thing. The only thing virtual about a native boot is the hard drive.

As I understand it you are asking about an in-place upgrade of Windows 10 on a VHDX native boot system. That is not possible.

View attachment 29071

To do an in-place upgrade on this .vhdx you would have to attach it as the boot drive for a Hyper-V VM then run the upgrade there.

You can do an upgrade in a VM, but not as a native boot VHDX.
Well something has changed with Windows 11 as this restriction no longer applies.

I just updated my Beta and Dev vhdxs from native boot vhdx files.

At last something where W11 is truly superior TECHNICALLY superior to W10.

Only other example I can think of is sandbox is now persistent across reboots.

That would be getting the Feature Update through Windows Update?

My native boot vhdx of W11 Beta has now done the last four Feature Updates without issue. I haven't tried an in-place upgrade/repair install using an ISO yet though. I'll need to get the new ISO to try that.....

EDIT: and, courtesy of UUPDump, i have the 22621.1 ISO. Yes, I can confirm the in-place upgrade works too.

    fully 'Windows 11 ready' laptop. Windows 10 C: partition migrated from my old unsupported 'main machine' then upgraded to 11. A test migration ran Insider builds for 2 months. When 11 was released on 5th October it was re-imaged back to 10 and was offered the upgrade in Windows Update on 20th October.

Update on this and totally bizarre. My original vhdx was made from an insider 10 iso. Out of all ideas I downloaded the Nov 2021 release Windows 10 and made a vhdx from that, joined the insider release channel, all updates done and guess what! Everything works like a charm, no idea what the issue is or was but hey ho
