Yesterday, Microsoft issued a new Knowledgebase article for the brave people, like you ant me, that run Windows 10 Technical Preview, build 10041. It fixes a bug where the user name and password box might not appear on the sign-in screen.
You run the 32bit (x86) version of Windows 10 Technical Preview build 10041 or the 64bit (x86-64) version of Windows 10 Technical Preview build 10041 on a device, or you run Windows 10 Technical Preview build 9926 configured in the slow update ring and you update to Windows 10 Technical Preview build 10041 this week.
You start the device and want to log on.
When attempting to sign into Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 10041, the user name and password box might not appear on the sign-in screen.
The solution is to install update corresponding with KB3050653 from Windows Update or from Windows Server Update Services (WSUS).
When you look at the available updates for Windows 10 Technical Preview this month, in either Windows Update or Windows Server Update Services, you’ll notice this update accompanies three other updates:
- KB3046049 Security update to address vulnerabilities in SChannel (aka FREAK patch)
- KB3050279 Update to address graphics artifacts and increase system reliability
