Windows Insider stuck at build 10162

Windows Insider won't updated

So my 10162 insider windows edition is now expired, keeps restarting, telling me it will stop working and yet Windows Update says there is no updates.

Search on the Internet found many with similar issues but none of the solutions worked, however the below did the trick for me

  • Download the Windows 10 ISO Installation
  • Mount the file by right clicking
  • Enter one of the following Product Keys - Windows 10 build 10240 keys:
    • Windows 10 Home build 10240 - TX9XD-98N7V-6WMQ6-BX7FG-H8Q99
    • Windows 10 Pro build 10240 - VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T
    • Windows 10 Enterprise build 10240 - NPPR9-FWDCX-D2C8J-H872K-2YT43
  • When the installation finishes ensure you are still part of the insider builds

If this has helped you drop me a comment or follow me on twitter @danielsokolows.

Duplicate value found: duplicates value on record with id: <unknown>.

System.DmlException: Insert failed. First exception on row 0; first error: DUPLICATE_VALUE, duplicate value found: <unknown> duplicates value on record with id: <unknown>.The above error is triggered in the database layer and caused by a trigger or workflow outside of your main code of block that is bubbling this exception. This is rather difficult to track down especially if you are unfamiliar with the code, I am sharing my procedure in the hopes this saves you time - if you find this helpful drop me a line or follow me on twitter @danielsokolows. This error is caused by unique field constraint on the object, so the first step is to examine the object and locate the API names of all unique fieds. You can do this through SF direclty 'Setup < Customize &lt <object being inserted> &lt Fields' or by downloading the `src/objects` metadata information and searching for <unique>; I preffer the latter and actually download ALL matadata information f…
