Dell Venue 8 Pro 5830 Windows 10 1803 to Windows 10 1903

My first attempt to upgrade the Venue 8 Pro 5830 from Windows 10 1803 to Windows 10 1903 did not work -- the device downloaded the upgrade (albeit to a usb drive attached) but failed to install, at the point where approximately 17% of the installation was underway.  I am just wondering if anyone else has experience with this.  This device is rather old, but has been a great workhorse, and I do not see similar Windows devices on the market currently.  Any comments appreciated.  Thank you!

I am also interested to know if anyone has upgraded their Venue 8 Pro to Windows 10 1903. Like the previous poster, I am running 1803.

I recall attempting to upgrade to 1809 but several devices stopped working after the upgrade so I rolled back to 1803. The Venue 8 Pro has not given me an option to upgrade to 1903 through Windows Update but I suspect that is because I blocked the upgrade to 1809.

I've been running 1903 since May 2019 (apparently). I've had no problems.

I upgraded two Dell Venue 8 Pro 5830s this week. It was straightforward and both tablets run beautifully. I used the Windows 10 Media Creator for the process.

One more thing... be sure to run all the driver and bios updates after the install.

I never the USB sticks to work no matter what the size. Plugged in an external USB hard drive and everything went smooth.  I am currently running 1909 in mine.
