We couldn't install Windows 10

We've set you PC back to where it was right before you started installing Windows 10
The installation failed in the SECOND_BOOT phase with an error during BOOT operation
What was tried: Connected straight to ethernet, Turned off wireless and Defender A/V, Removing the D/L files, D/L fresh from ISO file, launched install file, went through approx 50% and PC rebooted - nor stuck on black screen with swirling dots for OVER 4 hours with a brief HD access every couple of seconds.
Rebooted again -- still swirling dots on black screen. Tried again, same results.
Rebooted with F8 to get original Win 10 back.
Turned on "metered connection" option for WLAN to stop this update from happening. But now I cannot get and security updates for this machine.
Please suspend this D/L until fixed. Cannot afford to have no protection!

Howdy,
I can't login to Microsoft Volume Licensing Center to download a VOLUME-MAK of Windows 10 Enterprise x64 Anniversary Update (v 1607) .iso file for a clean install.
I have downloaded the eval version from MSDN eval center but that copy can't be activated and is just for trial testing.
OR at least can't get activated using my VOLUME-MAK license key.
I won't get back to the office to get access to the official download links, but I have my license key here.
Please advise, where else this Windows 10 Enterprise x64 Anniversary Update .iso VOLUME-MAK is hosted so I can download .iso file at east and fast?
I searched a lot bot mostly for Home and Pro, please help.
Cheers,
Omid.

Hello all.
Running windows 10 pro 64 bit.
I've updated from Version 1511 to the anniversary update, 1607.
Or at least, I thought I did.
The update went well, no hiccups, no errors. Used windows update, let it downloaded and install and rebooted. Alas, system still shows OS Version 1511.
Used update again, same thing, rebooted, 1511.
Went to the windows site, downloaded the windows10upgrade9252.exe, ran it, same exact issue, rebooted, still showing version 1511.
Error logs show no issues. Disabled all external drives, turned off anti-virus, etc, repeated, rinsed, rebooted, still version 1511.
Only think I've not done is burned an ISO to DVD and updated from that.
Any clues as to what's going on?
Thanks!

I know this is odd, but I saw this on another site and it has worked for me on 2 computers so far. Click on the anniversary update, let it check your system and then let it download the update. As soon as it starts to update, disconnect the wireless or LAN. It was able to update after this. Once it got past this section, I connected to the wireless again. About to do this with my 3rd computer. None were able to update before.

First of all, I'm coming from Windows 7. I'm one that was able to upgrade to Windows 10 for free.

Am I able to perform a clean install of Windows 10 using the same license I currently have on Windows 10? How would I obtain my current key, then? Is it s imply the Product ID listed under Control Panel>System ?

Can I download a copy of the installation media which already contains the AU update?

How would I install Windows 10 onto a M.2 drive? Is it as easy as picking the hard drive to install Windows on during setup?

Windows 10 Anniversary Update Might Hide Partitions After Install

One of the issues experienced by users after installing the Windows 10 Anniversary Update concerns partitions, as many of those who upgraded their computers reported that a number of partitions disappeared from File Explorer.

Furthermore, all partitions show up as RAW in Disk Management, which makes most people believe that all their data has been removed and nothing can be recovered.

Microsoft, however, claims that this is just a bug discovered in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update install system, and while no files are lost, it?s critical for users not to try to recover anything with third-party apps because this could lead to completely breaking down the partitions and removal of data.

?Microsoft is aware of this issue and is working on a solution to be released through Windows Update. Any data you have stored on the affected partition is still there. We recommend that you not try to recover or otherwise write data to the affected partition, nor should you format the partition,? the company says.




You can also downgrade in the meantime
Microsoft?s Sharath Srinivasa goes on to explain that a patch will be released to users when it?s available and states that users who do not want to wait for it can always downgrade to their previous Windows version. Partitions should be then just as you created them, with all files once again accessible.

For the moments, there?s still no timing on wh... Read more

I have a problem after installing the Anniversary Update of Windows 10. This post concerns the process which involves a clean re-install of Windows 10 by the method which includes downloading and running Microsoft's Media Creation Tool, choosing "Create Media for another PC". This downloads an ISO of Windows which, when put on a USB stick, can be used to boot the computer and clean-install Windows 10 (no license key required because Windows 10 was already running, although I have my license key.) I am told that this produces a "very clean" install which would clear any glitches in the previous install. Programs would need to be re-installed.

My question please: assuming that the Media Creation Tool will be downloaded after the Anniversary Update was installed, will it produce a Windows 10 + Anniversary Update version ?

Thanks for any help.

PS: I wasn't able to create a Macrium System Image which would include the Anniversary Upgrade because my problem occurred immediately after the Update. If you are interested in what that problem is, go to:

Hello,I recently purchased a new 2016 model Spectre x360 (PN X7V20UA). It came running Windows 10 1511, and I would like it to be running 1607 (Anniversary Update). However, the update to 1607 is not being offered inside of Windows Update. I've installed everything that was available, include today's November patch releases, to no avail. Windows Update shows "Your device is up to date." This link http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2016/10/hps-new-spectre-x360-is-probably-the-best-pc-laptop-around/ says that the 1607 update is being blocked on this model temporarily due to driver compatability issues.

A:Trouble trying to install Windows 10 Anniversary Update, version 1607

Hello JRAllen72653 Welcome to the Ten Forums!

One advice I can provide here would be to try a different method for either update by upgrade or planned clean install which doesn't seem to be what you have been looking for. When the Redstone 1 update didn't even arrive here for 3 separate desktops as well as a recently new laptop where 10 came already on not seeing the update still lead to fail of the MC Tool to see the immediate online upgrade take place or create the usb media needed.

Twin solutions were then sought! The first in order to see all machines updated was to download the "windows.iso" by way of the MC Tool which equals both the 32bit and 64bit flavors for both the Home and Pro editions. We call that a "4 in 1" type of download that covers everyone.

The second item on the agenda did opt to use a 3rd party program not the Windows option to mount the iso downloaded onto each machine or run from a flash drive where the setup.exe main executable would be manually started to watch each upgrade install take place. Once all systems were set which included one desktop only lately being upgraded from 7 Home Premium to 10 Home and then still waiting for the update to go on before return to owner was to visit a MS download iso type page to grab both the 32bit and 64bit smaller Dual Edition iso downloads to keep onhand.

Hi,
I have a Packard Bell OneTwo S3221. It came factory installed with W7.

I upgraded to W10 last year after difficulty - upgrading to W10 via Windows update would not work, kept installing to a certain percentage then would reboot to a blank screen and freeze indefinitely, I needed to power off then on restart it would roll back to W7. This happened repeatedly despite trying all sorts - clean boots, uninstalling antivirus and updating drivers, etc.

I finally installed W10 using Media creation tool. Everything ran fine. But when the big update came in Novmember 2015 that failed to, in the same way as above, however all other monthly windows updates install fine.

Windows update never tried to push the Nov 2015 update on me again - I'm still on build 10240 now.

I was prompted to install the anniversary update by Windows update last week but that also failed in the same way as above. Download ok and begins installing fine, then at some point after 50% complete I get the blank screen indefinitely and have to power off, then it reverts back to W10 build 10240.

Having checked Packard Bell website my model is not supported by Packard Bell for W10, and they are not providing any drivers for it. This may explain the problems.

Can anyone suggest how to find out what the problem is and if there is a solution? I've tried looking in Update history for error codes, but there is none, it doesn't even show an attempt to install the anniversary update. Like i said every other ... Read more

A:Can't install Windows 10 Anniversary update, stuck on build 10240

Hi, simplest answer is avoid windows update and create the appropriate bootable medium or iso and use it as you did before.
As you know plenty of people have this sort of problem.

Note that the upgrade can introduce new issues for some (search the net), and some are delaying because of that. Older machines like yours could well exhibit such problems. So before you make this change, I recommend you create a disk image of your existing setup - a procedure you should do routinely anyway- to give another way of restoring your system.
E.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot medium + external storage for images.

It's best to have a physical bootable medium as it covers all of:
a. if you need to repeat the installation
b. as a bootable medium for recovery options
c. in case you need to do an in-place upgrade repair install

without taking up disk space.

I am unable to install the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, keeps failing after second restart (at around 75%).

Machine is a relatively recent custom build, a little over 12 months old: Gigabyte B85M-HD3 (rev 2) mobo, i5-4460 CPU, Geforce GT 740 2GB GPU, 8GB RAM, Samsung 850 EVO 250GB SSD. Been running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (1511) with no problems. sfc /scannow gives a clean bill of health. No apparent issues with drivers, Device Manager shows all good.

Tried installing via Windows Update and also via the downloaded Windows 10 Upgrade executable... same result. Everything goes well up until the second restart and then the start screen just hangs with the little circle of dots twiddling around indefinitely - up to 8 hours - and no hard drive activity whatsoever.

The only USB devices connected are my keyboard and mouse. I've tried installing in Clean Boot mode with all startup items and non-Microsoft services disabled... no difference. Tried increasing the size of the System Reserved partition from 350MB to 500MB... no difference. Tried installing while disconnected from the internet... no difference.

A:Anniversary update won't install - no error code

Hi, download the ISO manually and create a bootable medium (which is useful in various circumstances).
(How - where- see the Tutorial section or search the net- not difficult).

That way you download once and can retry and have it available for other purposes. Also you avoid issues with Windows update.

From an admin command prompt
[Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
chkdsk C: /F
Your PC will need to restart.
Make sure the result is clear or fixed.
Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:
How do I see the results of a CHKDSK that ran on boot? - Ask Leo!

Disable any AV. Disconnect any devices you don't need. Uninstall any program that affects or modifies your GUI.

Do a clean boot then try the upgrade using the Win 10 DVD/USB.

If it fails again, you can have a look at the log:
Windows Update logs are now generated using ETW (Event Tracing for Windows).
Please run the Get-WindowsUpdateLog PowerShell command to convert ETW traces into a readable WindowsUpdate.log.

My first impressions:

Pros:
Seems a bit faster overall - I did a complete system image backup in 00:02:09 (previously took 00:02:35)
OS install uses less space (at least for my installation)
Event viewer shows no new instances (I had two known issues before and they are still there)
Reapplied many of Brinks tutorial suggestions and most of them worked... except this one:

gpedit management notice is missing (second screen shot) so I can't say for sure if it will work (or not).

Cons:

Event viewer shows no new instances (I had two known issues before and they are still there)
Reapplied many of Brinks tutorial suggestions and most of them worked... except this one:

gpedit management notice is missing (second screen shot) so I can't say for sure if it will work (or not).

Cons:
Win10BGChanger1.2.1 still doesn't work (as expected)
Sound removed from notifications by default (not a con for me though)

All in all, working well so far (for me).

Hi I'm running windows 7 Ultimate x64 bit OS and I installed this as an OEM product that I got from eBay. When I first installed the Windows back in March of this year, I could download and install all updates. But since then I can't download and/or install any updates which keeps me worried about my computer's overall condition that might get BSODs and other errors. I ran sfc scan and found no problems. I ran the windows update readiness tool, but it didn't install that update either!! I don't get any errors but I can send you the CBS logs that has text file because the other zipped files are very large files (around 12 MB each) that I can't upload in here. So I attached the CBS text file at the bottom. Please tell me how to fix this problem or connect me with remote network connection if you can so I can resolve this issue as it's very important that my computer can download and install updates, thank you.

I am here because of the final reply I received to this post:

Windows update settings and other questions

I cannot get WU to behave properly. At one point it quit checking my machine for needed updates. I carefully reset it to the "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them." and now when I shut down I am told "please wait for update 1 of 1 to install.

I ran SFC scannow and encountered no errors.

I will attempt to attach the CBS log zip file

Last night another update installed 'automatically.' This morning when I first booted I had great difficulty gaining control of my machine. I hit a black screen for a while. I can't recall all that I tried but eventually I got to a screen where I could shut down properly and when I rebooted the system ran 'normally.'

I would still like to be able to research an update before I install it, at least know what it might be doing.

thanks

It's called "Update for Windows 7 for x64-based systems (KB971033)".
The description says: "This update to Windows Activation Technologies detects activation exploits and tampering to key Windows system files. These exploits try to bypass regular Windows activation and are sometimes included within counterfeit copies of Windows."

However, my computer did not automatically select that update as an important update to download. So, is it necessary to download it???

A:Do I need to download/install Windows update KB971033?

No it is not necessary to install that update. If you are unsure about the source of Win 7 you have it is a good check that it is a legit copy.

I've recently repaired my OS (yes, as in repaired in boot setup via the CD...) and now Windows Update doesn't seem to work anymore!

Automatic Updates or manual updates, it doesn't seem to make a difference, I have downloaded all the critical/high priority updates from Microsoft Update, but every time I try to install them, the message reads simply 'Some of the updates could not be installed' (ie: ALL of them! - see attached images)

I've scoured Microsoft Update for ANY form of help for this, to no avail, there is no apparent error code to reference! Microsoft Update worked fine, until I experiecned an error with 'Generic Host Process for Win32 Services' on shutdown last month, which was rectified by the repair...

Any thoughts?...

if your tablet gets the battery charged via an micro USB connector, then you must use the method of do the upgrade by Micro SD card, since the installation will take 3-6 hours so need keep the tablet powered and plugged to the wall socket all the time , if ran the set up by battery will get no power in no time and will brick your tablet forever, or in the best of the chances will get back automatically to the wind...

This box came with windows 7 64 bit Home OS.  I recently upgraded to the windows 10 OS in order to take advantage of the latest OS.  Around August the windows 10 anniverary update became available but upon attempting multiple times it have failed.  I receive a 0xc1900200 error and a reference to the system reserved partition not being big enough.  I don't seem to see a partition called System Reserved partition but have tried to expande what looks like a 100 MB SRP, using Partition Magic.  It doesn't let me change this 100 MB partition.  The PC runs fine but because of MS auto updates, which I need to keep other MS software up to date, I get regular failures of the Anniversary update release.

Hi all,

Wondering if anyone else has experienced an icon display issue on their start menu with the 1607 update?

I have just clean installed (and fully updated) the 1607 Anniversary Update on 2 PC's and both are experiencing an identical issue with their start menu. The problem whilst seemingly minor is especially annoying given that I have performed the updates for some friends and it is a matter of pride to me that I hand over any such systems in a perfect state.

The Start Menu program list (A - Z list) as well as the "most used" and "recently added" lists contain icon tiles for the installed programs. On both systems around 25% of these tiles display a generic "blank page" image rather than the icon image associated with that program. That said the tile in question opens it's associated program and it's text label also displays correctly.......as I said earlier an annoying niggle!

By now you are all thinking ah its a icon cache failure just rebuild the icon cache!! I have of course rebuilt the icon cache following the instructions contained in option 2 of the tutorial here www.tenforums.com/tutorials/5645-icon-cache-rebuild-windows-10-a.html as well as deleting the C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Local\IconCache.db file neither of which corrects the issue.

I just downloaded /installed / updated Quicktime on an older Dell Inspiron 5150 laptop running Windows XP Home Edition that had just been updated through Microsoft website. I also added Window Media Player 11 from the Microsoft website. Computer worked great (as well as to be expected, anyway) after Windows Update and Media Player 11 but after Quicktime was installed and updated it became unstable.
Upon start up Windows will not start successfully. So far I have tried Safe Mode, Last known Good Configuration (gets a blue screen - a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down....check harddrive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. run chkdsk /f and restart. I get it but how???, ) and Start Normally all to no avail. All option either freeze computer, give Kernel error, or no bootable device. I hit F10 and ran the Diagnostics and received Smart drive error.
I don't have the XP Dell Resources Cds and can't figure out how to get it to self repair by running chkdsk utility. I also don't know how to get to where I might be able to just remove Quicktime completely to fix the problem.

Windows 10 already utilizes GPT partitioning....on a clean install. The only thing you would need to do is change your BIOS firmware from Legacy BIOS to UEFI BIOS.

So, I don't really know any details of what malware I may have on my computer other than its symptoms and the likelihood that it came through utorrent (which has since been taken off the computer). Basically, the problem began manifesting itself with the BSOD in Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit. I think I have taken care of that problem. The remaining symptoms of the malware are that windows and windows defender cannot update itself. Also, I cannot download any type of anti-virus update software or even the programs themselves. The updates just say they were unsuccessful. When I attempt to do a manual install/update of anti-virus or windows updates I get a "cannot connect to webpage". Sometimes, I will be redirected from an anti-virus download site to a random unaffiliated site. When I attempt to run a free online virus scan, the update will not work and therefore there is no ability to scan.

Thanks for whatever help you can offer. Eric

I don't know what to do the thermometer gauge represents your surface pro is getting overheated and in order to prevent heat damage to the core hardware the device/bios shuts down your device. so first we need to fix the overheating issue and then can you continue with the update.

Hi,

I just downloaded and installed the Windows 10 Anniversary Update yesterday and so far I have noticed some changes in my computer that I was not aware of before the update.

(1) Somehow my System Restore was set to Disabled and all of my restore points are now gone and

(2) All of my Microsoft Update History is also missing.

Could the update be the cause of both?

Thanks and regards,

2harts4ever

A:Update History missing after Win10 Anniversary Update

Yes, the update is the cause of both.

Major version upgrades like this change so much functionality, they often have to reset various settings to default so that they are in a known good state. Unfortunately, many have complained about the System Restore option being reset to Disabled (this is the Windows default).

As for your previous restore points, that's to be expected. You can't restore to a previous restore point on a previous OS version. All the baseline files are different, and you would be restoring settings for the old OS if you were to somehow be able to restore it.

Think of it like a Bookmark or favorite, but they've moved the location to a different URL. Restoring the old favorite only points you to somewhere that doesn't exist anymore.

As for #2, your update history is gone because again, it's a fresh OS, and previous updates are all integrated into the OS now, not patches. Those old updates don't apply to the new OS anymore.

Strange things are happening here on my W10x86 Pro system, and I am worried...

After being shut down for some time, I turned on this computer yesterday Monday, and it finished configuring some updates that it had apparently installed last time I shut it down. When shutting it down on Monday evening, it again goes into installing updates, but looking like it was stuck on 0%. After an hour I just let it sit over night, and this morning it had shut down. Then today when I turn it on in the afternoon, it goes into configuring a big update, before booting up, taking close to 30 minutes and restarting three or four times, showing me this screen
http://blogs-images.forbes.com/anton...w10-update.jpg that I have never seen before.

After the half hour it tells me that it has updated my W10 and there are lots of new exciting things. Naturally I thought that this was the Anniversary Update, so I looked into the Update History, and to my surprise this was entirely empty. "No updates installed yet", it told me.

Then I manually clicked "Check for new updates", and then it finds lots of updates, like "Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 (KB3176493)" and a whole bunch of other updates all numbered with 1511.

I am baffled here... what goes on?

Do you have Fast Startup turned on in Power Options/change what the power buttons do?

That speeds up boot time, but makes shutdown a bit slower, as then the system needs to write your current state to a hiberfile.

I'm trying to update to Windows 10 anniversary edition.  I kept getting error messages after installation at 75%.  I spoke to MIcrosoft Level 2 support and they said HP wasn't testing my model which was purchased in 2010 and therefore that was why I was getting error messages.  Is this correct?  I am running windows 10 build 10586.

My two pcs at home don't show the Anniversary Update at all, otherwise they're both fully updated.

It's been available since 2nd August. I could manually install it, but I'm wondering why it hasn't auto-installed yet.

Also, have the initial 'issues' reported with the update been resolved?

Assuming your devices have enough space, resources, etc to get the update - with past updates it may take up to two months to make it around the slow ring. You can speed this up by changing to a faster ring or manually getting it.

I am not sure what "issues" you are referring to.. so, maybe?

Hi all this update is killing me I called MS they downloaded it agene for me .I get freezing and bsod every time I play a game and sometimes at idle I updated, repaired every game I have .
I am tempted to buy windows10pro and block updates if I can.
sorry for the rant I am just frustrated.

A:Windows 10 anniversary update

Hello, if you search the web, you will find a significant number of people are experiencing significant issues with the anniversary upgrade including freezing. As yours is a custom built PC, there's no direct comparison or manufacturer to refer to. I've noted a couple who needed a BIOS update.

If yours works reliably with Win 10 10586 but not the anniversary upgrade, I suggest you roll back to 10586 (allowed up to 10 days after upgrading) and block the upgrade. This is/was possible even with the Home edition:
Stop Windows 10 from automatically updating your PC - CNET
e.g. by using Wifi only, as a metered connection or disabling the appropriate service.

You'd need to check what actually works now in the anniversary edition for Windows Home, as this, like features and GUI, may have changed.

This was provided for Home users.. I don't know if it still applies now.

After updating windows 10 anniversary, pc often remains frozen for a few seconds. It's a common problem to other PCs.  Do you have a solution?

A:Windows 10 anniversary update

Valterred The Anniversary Update (AU) is a whole NEW version of Win10.  The previous was 10586; this is 14393 -- and the community Win10 forums are awash with folks whose machines, which had previously been running Win10 without problems, SUDDENLY developed problems either trying to install this Update, or after installing this Update.My desktop has been running Win10 without problems since the earliest days of the Insider Preview over a year ago and it's sailed through Update after Update without problems.  So, you can imagine my surprise when the AU trashed my PC -- to the degree that I restored it from an image backup. What MIGHT work is something known as a repair-install.  This is the least destructive of all the Windows recovery functions and rewrites the Windows system files, including the drivers, leaving your data, settings, and applications intact.To do this, you will need to use the link to download Win10 installation media and either burn a DVD or create a USB stick: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/media-creation-tool-install?ocid=ms_wol_win10Note that when you go do download and build install media, the tool defaults to matching what is already installed on your PC (as in, Home for Home, 64-bit for 64-bit).  Make sure you select the same version as needed for your PC. If you do not, the resulting media will be different and will force you to enter a NEW product code!Once you have that media, follow the instructions in t... Read more

Microsoft are going to be rolling out improvements to Windows 10 systems over the coming weeks (starting today) with the "Windows 10 Anniversary Update"... think of it as a service pack!

If you're using Windows 10 already, you'll likely notice some big changes/improvements when it hits - including a new style start menu. There is more information on what can be expected on the Windows Insider blog:

I have read other threads on this subject and have not found the solution to my problem in them.

The Windows 10 Anniversary Upgrade Assistant Icon appeared on my desktop. I began the process to update and received the error, SOMETHING WENT WRONG (code 0x80070057).

Then I took the following steps:

Did a CC clean of drive. Got same response.
Did a disk doctor and then tried again. Same response.
Did SFC/scannow. Got same response.
Did checkdsk/. Got same response
Did Windows update diagnostic and got SERVICE REGISTRATION IS MISSING OR CORRUPT.

What do I do to correct the problem?

A:Windows 10 Anniversary Update

This worked for me. May not solve your issue but worth a try. (see my post)

"Got it updated. On the MS Forum it seems to have been an issue for lots of users. One work around suggested was to disconnect (immediately) any wifi/ethernet connection when update sticks at 2%. Count to 30 or 40 and re-connect."

Strangely this worked and update completed.

I recently encountered a virus right around the time Windows 10 was updated to Windows 10 Anniversary. I had originally upgraded my Windows 8.0 to Windows 10 (beta), but my Activation code didn't work so I had to get windows to help me, and that's when Windows 10 Anniversary was installed. Before that my computer ran beautifully. All my programs worked with no issues, never issues installing stuff. Now, I have non-stop issues. I went to check for updates and realized that there hadn't been any updates done to date so I tried. this is the error message that persists.
There were some problems installing updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help: (0x80240442)
I have been trying different things for about a week now with no success. I followed countless "outdated" tutorials on what to do but nothing works. Tonight I finally found something recent, I thought it was on this forum but I can't find it again, but I will send a screenshot of the "ADMIN Powershell" commands I sent;

The Echo off at the bottom wasn't there before, I tried to repost it a 2nd time and it still didn't work. I think it actually changed the error code to

I'm not sure how you got rid of edge but yes, those removed programs will be reinstalled as that is part of the update. If you removed the apps because you didn't enjoy them the first time, try them after getting the update, they've improved a lot

Hi,
I previously posted a question under same topic and received 2 alternatives - 1) to copy the update on a bootable disk and 2) to differ updates in advanced settings.
Unfortuantely both doesnt work for me due to
1) I do not have a disk drive in my Samsung Series 5 Ultra book
2) I have windows for private use
Can you please come back with a third option?
Thank you!

Laptop updated itself few days ago and i noticed after update that the laptop would hang if you don't use it and the only fix is restarting the pc. Its strange in my opinion. I noticed also that mozilla firefox will hang after some time for few seconds sometimes and then work again like nothing has happened. These are things what i have noticed at the moment. Is anyone else with these problems? Or what else weird buggy things have you noticed?

Hi.
A week ago I installed anniversary update, which doesn't probably need mentioning, gave me enough problems to last for months. My problems are regarding graphic drivers, which crash at next reboot even before windows login screen shows, and it means I can't do anything except hard restart PC.

I end up using my USB bootable windows 10 to repair startup, and it helps for next few reboots, but it eventually crashes again.

Bear in mind, I already used "reset your PC" option - which of course updates my PC with same anniversary update so I'm back to square one. Next I restored my C: image back yesterday (before updating with anniversary update I used Macrium Reflect free image backup) which worked, but today when I first started PC it happened again.

I repaired startup after that again and it works now, and I uninstalled completely NVIDIA drivers from my PC, restarted it and reinstalled newest drivers (this is last thing I done so it works for now, but need to give some time to see if it persists).

I'm wondering, is there a way to install fresh windows 10 install but without anniversary update? It seems when I want to clean install it always updates to latest update.

It boggles my mind how is that update even allowed to be available in live let alone exist at all...I seriously hope they didn't break or bugged something on my PC.

Basically, only problem I have with that update is graphical driver issue. Those drivers worked flawlessly before updating.

Some days ago Windows Update tried to do the Anniversary Update on my Win 10 Pro 64bit system. The update failed with an error message that said "We couldn't update the system reserved partition". I manually retried the update a couple times with the same error message. The error messages do not include an error code.
After that Windows Update said my device was up to date with no updates available. Hmmmmm.....

And then yesterday an update appeared for the Windows version I was running and now winver shows V 1511 build 10586.545.

Did Windows Update give up on trying to do the Anniversary Update?

My audio worked fine until last week when the wonderful folks at MS decided it was time my computer upgraded to the anniversary edition.  Since then I have about 10% the volume.   What I have tried: 1. Maxed out ALL settings for volume everywhere.2. Updated drivers.3. Uninstalled and re-installed drivers.4. Tried the generic drivers from MS.5. Tried downloading and re-installind the BEATS application... which failed as it said my hardware didn't support it (though I seem to recall having beats before?!) HELP!   The volume is low (maybe 10%) everywhere... videos... applications... games... etc... HELP!
