    It's cause your running legacy installation of Windows and not the UEFI

    I believe Microsoft has stopped or severely cut back on 1809 deployments now that 1903 is around the corner, simply to avoid having users go through two major release updates essentially back to back. It's just needless additional inconvenience and risk. I'd just sit tight until 1903 becomes broadly available. You're not missing much by skipping out on 1809, but if you really want it, you can always manually download the Media Creation Tool direct from Microsoft, which despite the name you can use to perform an in-place upgrade rather than just creating install media.

    I just performed a 1903 clean install on my system since I have access to MSDN where it's already available. I figured my system had been through several Windows 10 releases since my last clean install, so it was time. I also wanted to try out Windows Sandbox, which is pretty slick and handy even though I also use Hyper-V for full VMs.

    Yep. No problems here (except for the !$%*! undeleteable file under Windows.old).

    Ok, I just got a Dell popup to say a few things need to be updated.
    One of them, was the BIOS - which it said to update to version A11.

    Anyone out there update to A11 yet, and if so - any feedback on how it went ?
    I'm afraid to try it - as it may just brick my 9530 (it is about due for a major issue one of these days, I just know it !).

    Mine is on A11, I installed it over a year ago, but if you are afraid to try it, dont update. I havent noticed anything better with this update.

    Not sure how @jokkee could have installed A11 a year ago since it was released in Jan 2019 but anyway, I just installed it and no problems. Since it appears to only address yet more Intel security issues it probably does nothing but make your system slower. Yay ;-)
