Windows 10 Fall Creators Update fails on MacOS based VM

Yesterday my Windows 10 VM I run on my Macbook took forever to install updates.

Then at some point my macbook (yes the complete macbook) went blank / off without any warning. As the laptop usually warns of low battery charge, I suspect I hit some kinda bug.

This morning when trying to recover, the Macbook itself was fine, but my Windows 10 VM gave me screen I rarely get to see these days. Luckily I have a backup copy of the VM which I will try to update today.

FYI : I’m running High Sierra with VMWare FusionĀ Professional Version 8.5.8 (5824040)

Update: after restoring the VM and running the update again, it worked fine. Strange šŸ˜‰
