My Windows 11 22H2 upgrade experience: Not great at first

This video was going to be the original video on how to upgrade to 22H2, but due to issues I had, I decided to make this a separate video on my upgrade experiences. I do not blame 22H2 for most of these issues, as I believe there was an issue on my end. I also did not upgrade it properly at first and used the Windows 11 installation assistant, which forces PC health check even on Windows 11.

I plan to upgrade to 22H2 again (Edit: already upgraded again) as I feel it will be a much better experience the second time. Perhaps my video editor got corrupted somehow before. It is still having some issues, even after going back to 21H2. I will upgrade again and post on Twitter my experiences. I will not make another video on this. Also I forgot to include the clips of my VM failing to update, however that was due to a corrupted ISO so that isn't 22H2's fault at all.

How are your 22H2 upgrade experiences? Feel free to leave a comment below! I did have good experiences with 22H2 in the past, so i believe this was just a bad upgrade. Things like this can happen sometimes.

Thanks for watching, and more videos soon! I may not upload for at least a week or two after this, due to getting a lot of schoolwork. I have a computer adventure in the works, but that may take time to edit. I will probably take the time to work on that video instead.
