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

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

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 monthly update since last year installs fine, its just the big builds that won't.

Thanks

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 have tried just about every method out there!
I have been getting the automatic downloads and restarts since I purchased the computer and never once did I question it.
Then I hear about this "anniversary update" and all the new features and I think "well I want that, lemme get it."
Turns out I'M STILL ON THE SAME VERSION THAT I WAS WHEN I PURCHASED THE FREAKIN THING! Also, when I check update history, THE DAMNED THING HASN'T UPDATED A SINGLE TIME!

Also, when I check update history, THE DAMNED THING HASN'T UPDATED A SINGLE TIME! i dont know whats wrong with your system , but i can show you a way to get Anniversary update . Download Media creation tool, make a bootable disc and when you boot from disc it will give to 2 options > upgrade your computer & >fresh install. choose whichever you prefer .
OR you can use the update utility form the microsoft website to force update your system to AU
Media creation tool will get you the latest AU update build i.e. 14393.10 :)

Hi everyone,

After not recieving the AU from Microsoft I took a look at winver I noticed that my PC has never received or installed an update since the original Windows 10 build (Version 10.0 or build 10240).

I began to investigated and noticed that Cumulative Update KB3185611 keeps trying to install however Windows Update always fails to install this update giving me this error:

"There were problems installing some 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:"
No error code is provided.

I took a look at setuperr.log within the Windows.BT folder and this is the only error present.

Error SP CSetupPlatform::ResurrectNewSystem: Cannot resurrect new system.: Win32Exception: \\?\C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\NewSystem.dat: The system cannot find the file specified.

I would really appreciate if anyone could help me out with this issue, as i'd like to move up to the AU :-)

Please let me know if you need any more info.

I am trying to install Windows 10 Build 10586 from Windows 10 Build 10240. I have just received the Windows Update Assistant popup telling me I'm not running the latest version of Windows. I have it downloaded but it will not install. The computer check said my computer is good to go (Asus AllInOne Model ET27011). I've tried several times and each time it reaches 100% the computer restarts and then it goes into "reinstalling your previous version" and I'm back to Build 10240. I know there are other people with the same problem but no solution. One website said to delete "Windows old folder, as that may be a problem, using Disk Cleanup but it doesn't show up on my computer under "Clean up system files/ Previous Windows installations. There is a "Windows old" folder on my C:drive, but it is full of empty folders. I'm not sure if I should just go ahead and delete it. There is also a new folder called Windows10Upgrade with files in it. Hope someone can help, thank you.

Do you have the Razer Synapse software installed? That seems to have been what's caused it for me. Unfortunately I seem no longer to be able to trigger the update, darn it, as Windows now feels it has updated and all's fine (it hasn't).

I'm a Insider member since Oct 2014, get all the builds till the official launch of Windows 10 last July.

A few days before the official launch my Windows 10 TP (build 10240) had a boot problem and gave me a UEFI boot error, since the Insider Program was locked and I can't get any Insider Preview build to work I had format my PC and install my Windows 8 Pro and follow the upgrade path to Windows 10. (Reserve a copy, wait for the update and install the Windows 10 (Pro) and activate with my valid Windows 8 Key, no hassles there.

After success upgrade I went to Security and Updates > Windows Update > Advanced Options and hit the Get Insider builds > Get Started button, restart my PC and check if Fast Ring was selected and it was. Last month it came out Build 10525 and later on Build 10532 and I didn't receive any of those.

I tried to force the download by hitting constantly the Check update button on Windows Update, but the only thing my Windows Update download is Windows Defender definitions. So, I tried the following: in Advanced Option, I hit the Stop receive preview builds, restart PC and go there again I hit the button Get Preview Builds, restart again and wait a few days... no luck.

Since I don't had any luck there I post some questions in Microsoft Answers and report the problem, a few days later receive some answers, but none of the those answers worked out and one of them seems to me a bit stupid, so the suggestions was:

My win 10 pro build 10240 hasn't received the November update build 1511 while my other win 10 home versions have. I know I'm not the only one having this problem but here's my two cents. On my xw4600, I upgraded from win 8.1 pro to win 10 pro as soon as 10 was available some months ago. I still receive other windows updates. I downloaded the most recent iso from the media creation tool but I don't have an option to mount it from the right click menu. Both sfc and dism have no issues. I would burn it do a disk but I've read other users say its just reinstalled build 10240 instead.

I was using another random win 10 pro computer at work today and noticed it hasn't received the November update yet either. Anyone else with win 10 pro that did get the update?

Maybe this issue has more to it, like when I upgraded to 10 pro I had an issue with onedrive. I don't really use it so I only disabled it from startup in the task manager, but it as a service disappeared (except for registry entries and program files) and I haven't found a way to reinstall it ... yet. I know I could do a clean install of windows but that's not my style. I move from pc to pc over the years using disk images. This onedrive issue is the only problem I've come across that I haven't figured out, without a clean install. I mean, I wiped onedrive from my system completely, registry keys and all, but attempts to reinstall fall short (error corrupted file). During the attempted installation it place... Read more

RE : I downloaded the most recent iso from the media creation tool but I don't have an option to mount it from the right click menu.

Did you burn the iso to a bootable media, then insert the media to the computer ?
If that was what you did, then you would NOT see the Mount option.
Instead, you would see the Setup option. Use that to start the installation.

I have been an Insider since the beginning and have received all the updates during the past few months.  I'm currently stuck in build 10166 and Windows Update informs me that my device is current.  Checking for updates yields nothing new except that Defender is updated daily, sometimes more than once.  On the next page I see a "Fix Me" button, but when I click on that up comes a dialog asking if I want to discontinue future builds.  Nothing else happens.
 
I ran the update troubleshooter, which reports: "Problems found: Service registration is missing or corrupt.  Not fixed".  I don't know if this is the cause of my problem, nor do I know how to repair the service registration.  I'd appreciate any help as I suspect this will impair my upgrade to the final Windows 10 build on Wednesday.  Thanks.

A:Can't Get Update To Build 10240

What is the latest build you have, which has a full iso?  Sounds like you need to reinstall it, but I don't know if that will work now.  My latest full iso is 10162, and when I installed it, then came 10166 as download, and on the day of the 10240 release, I got it in Updates.
 
Do you have any important files on it, or was this just a tester?  Obviously you'd need to backup first, else.
 
If all else fails, use one of your eligible licenses to download and get Win10.  It should self-activate when you do.

I installed the Tech Preview and registered as an Insider early on and largely rode the updates/releases when published, until build 10240. I sat on this build for a while (disabled the Windows Update service) and didn't do much with this preview install for a while. Now I'm wanting to work with it more and would like to update/upgrade to the latest build. I enabled/started the Windows Update service, but it won't update. If I go to Windows Update in Settings, besides the title bar, all I see is a blank page/pane with activity dots indefinitely flying across the top. Same deal if I open Settings and search for 'Advanced' and click on Advanced Windows Update options.

Troubleshooting steps taken:

A:windows 10 anniversary update stuck at 91%

Hi and welcome to windows central.
The fast and easier way to update to anniversary update is to use media creation tool from Microsoft website and make a bootable disc then update your system. This is the best practice as there is minimal chance of your system getting stuck on or during the update.
If you want to ignore the anniversary update on windows 10 PC , simply go to advanced setting under update and tick the box next to Differ Updates, this will enable you to get the threshold 2 future cumulative builds and ignore the anniversary update altogether.

Well that was somewhat expected I suppose but it's out now, build 14393.5 was pushed to both Slow and Release preview rings (it was released to Fast ring earlier this week on Monday). It pretty much is the Anniversary Update from all the reports and since it's been pushed now to all the rings that means it's pretty much done - the only thing now is to see it pushed to the Production ring aka general wide release which is expected on Tuesday August 2nd.

If you really can't wait to get it, it's currently available through Release Preview and I'm sure someone will throw together an ISO here in the next 24 hours or less for a clean install.

Hi,
I am wondering if anyone else is experiencing this problem after the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
When restarting, my laptop takes 5 minutes (no, that's not a misprint) to bootup. More specifically, that's the time taken from pressing the On button to the time I get to the login screen. I have an SSD drive in the laptop. While I am waiting for this to happen, the drive light is permanently on with no flickering. That's a LOT of drive access / throughput.
From there (logging on), there are no issues. Laptop is fine.
Here's a very weird thing. If I run cmd as Administrator and then run chkdsk /f and then reboot, the laptop (after it does the disk check and reboots again) will start really fast. Like it should. If I then reboot after that, it's back to the five minute thing.
I have tried the following:

Turned EnableULPS off
Tried turning off Virtual Memory or adjusting it to the recommended settings
Turning off Fast Boot
Taken the battery out while machine is off
Updated the drivers from the Device Manager
Unfortunately boot logging c:\Windows\ntbtlog.txt does not show log times and so I cannot see where the delay is.
Nothing in the Event Viewer since the delay happens before that.

Any ideas? The E6540 is supposedly certified for Update 1607. 
Many thanks.
Kind Regards

Microsoft is reportedly putting the finishing touches on the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, which is slated to arrive on August 2. The report comes from Windows Central, saying that build 14384 should be the first RTM (release to manufacturing) build.

The company has begun the sign-off process for the build, which means that it will put a variety of builds through internal tests, and then it will pick the best one for a public release.

According to the report, Insiders can expect to see a final build by the end of next week. The timeline isn't surprising. With the Anniversary Update less than a month away, we should certainly be in the polishing phase.

The fate ofWindows phones that are ineligible for the Anniversary Update is still undetermined. Such unsupported devices have had a sort of "upgrade at your own risk" option through the Release Preview ring. These users will be unable to install the Anniversary Update, but it's not clear if build 10586 will remain available for them.

The report also states that the Redstone 2 (Rs2) builds that Microsoft is compiling are in the 148xx range, and should begin shipping to Insiders in mid-to-late August. The Redstone 2 update isn't slatedto arrive for the public until April, 2017.

Next week, Microsoft will begin rolling out the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, and it's now putting the finishing touches to the major update before that rollout begins.

After pushing out build 14393.3 a few days ago as a cumulative update to 14393 - the final 'RTM' build (although Microsoft doesn't use that terminology any more) - it's followed up today with another bug-fixing rollup.

Dona Sarkar, head of the Windows Insider Program, announced today that Windows 10 Anniversary Update build 14393.5 is now available for PCs and phones in the Fast ring. According to the announcement on the Windows 10 Feedback Hub, the new update includes the following fixes:

We have improved reliability and performance of Microsoft Edge with AdBlock and LastPass extensions enabled. These extensions should continue to work after installing other extension updates from the Store.
We fixed an issue causing battery to drain due to runaway CPU processes while a device is idle. We also fixed a battery life issue due to the proximity sensor always running on some devices.

I had Windows 10 version 1511 installed on my computer already.

Today, the Windows 10 Anniversary Update arrived via Windows Update. It downloaded fine. After the restart, the Windows Update configured without problems to 100%.

During the installation after 71%, the computer restarted, and the blue Windows logo came up, with the dotted spinning circle below, and it got stuck at this screen. The dotted circle just keeps spinning. There is no hard drive activity at all.

I waited for about 45 mins first, and then I restarted the system via hard boot by pressing the power button for a few seconds. When it restarted, there was a message shown that "Recovering installation", after which it restarted and again got stuck at the same screen as above.

I again restarted manually after a while, and this time the message was "Restoring previous version of Windows", after which Windows 10 version 1511 was restored. So, that was good.

After that, to avoid any problems, I uninstalled Avast free antivirus, and other unnecessary programs. I also uninstalled disk imaging software like Paragon Backup & Recovery, Macrium Reflect free, and Aomei Backupper, just to be safe, since I saw some kind of error regarding Paragon software in the Event Viewer.

I let the Anniversary Update download again, and again, same thing happened... after installation at 71%, the computer restarted and it is stuck again at the same screen with Windows logo and dotted circle spinning.

Since the beginning of 2016 I have been unable to upgrade ending with constant requests to restart and the failure data as per attachment is the latest.

I did defer this upgrade but recently it has been ignored and the upgrade has been installing and failing again on a regular basis.

I have tried the ISO's and other links to this upgrade and they all finish with a simple statement "Failed". Funnily in Security & Maintenance it shows a failure almost as soon as it starts to download and then about an hour later it says it was a successful update. I expect to see a Windows.old in 'C' drive but there isn't any.

Last night a notification suddenly announced "We are working on it!" - what? Today it did another upgrade download and installation and guess what - failed.

I am under the impression that Microsoft want to get this upgrade going in preparation for the Windows 10 anniversary end July 2016.

I notice in Tiribos's post the instructions for downloading the ISO and mounting etc, but mine downloads as zip file but I suppose it all amounts to the same performance.

What to do?

This forum seems to be the best place to post as there is so much useless crap elsewhere on the internet mostly from a year or more ago.

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?

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:

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 downloaded the Anniversary update on my Alienware M17 laptop (16Gb Ram, i7CPU). The download all went well, but when I restarted, it is still stuck, after 4 hours.
The screen says:

Working on updates 1%
Don't turn off your PC. This will take a while.

I was able to download the Anniversary Update ISO, before I did the Anniversary Update, so I do have that as a backup, but won't that destroy all the data on my C drive?

My questions are:

1. How long did the Anniversary Update take on your PC?

2.. What is the recommended action to take ?

A:Anniversary Update Stuck at 1%

1) I haven't done the upgrade online on any of my 3 systems. I always used an .ISO.

I have an old laptop set to treat WiFi as a metered connection. When I tried to update to the latest build (14393.10) of the Anniversary Update through WiFi, it froze at 6%. I connected it to my router with an ethernet cable, and the update proceeded quickly.

2) If you have the .ISO, you can mount it as a virtual disk. You can upgrade from that (just launch setup.exe). You have the option of preserving your files and "apps".

You could also create a bootable USB drive or DVD from the .ISO. You'd then have the option of doing an upgrade (if you booted into the existing Windows installation) or a clean install (if you booted from the flash drive or DVD).

I suggest spending a little time in the Tutorials here. Not all of them are organized in the most readable fashion, but they cover all the details.

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.

Also on Microsoft's website with the list of updates for the "initial release" I don't have all the updates listed. Should I manually download them and apply to my PC? Thanks

A:Build 10240

Hi, you are now 2 major builds behind, as you have just the first release of Win 10. 10.0.10586 came out in Nov 2015 and 10.0.14393 in August this year, still being delivered to customers.

That suggest you have Windows update disabled, or are not connected to the internet, or Windows update is not working.

So you can either fix those problems, if any, or manually download the current iso and burn a DVD or USB disk manually, or directly create a bootable medium using MS's media creation tool, or just mount the iso and proceed from there.

It's not the November 11th Threshold 2 update or otherwise referred to the 10586.93 version 1511 build pushed by way of the Windows updates but a flimsy upgrade to the newer build as the actual problem! When seeing the 10565 and 10576 builds each upgraded to the 10586 not one problem was seen while the distance between the 10240 and 10586 being greater as well as the 10240 not being so good as an upgrade build to start with you are much better simply going for the 10586's clean install.

That can be done by first downloading the updated Media Creation tool if you have an 8gb usb flash drive available as a 4gb will be too small since the TH2 release is actually a roll up of both the Home and Pro editions as well as seeing both the 32bit and 64bit options! Since 10 is already on and had been activated the clean install will not only see the 10586.39 go on fresh for the actual best end results but upgrade the build you are running as well.

As for the existing recovery options found in the F8 menu's Advanced recovery options the Reset option will likely see the 10240 build restored as long as nothing on the drive has changed since the TH2 upgrade took place like running the DiskCleanup tool or removing the Windows.old if created.

In a surprise move (to me at least), Microsoft has issued a Cumulative Update to holdouts who turned down the November 2015 Update or those who were unable to Update due to technical issues. This Update offers a whole package of fixes and improvements. Microsoft pushes out batch of cumulative updates for Windows 10 | Windows Central Issues? Bugs? Solutions?

If you're having any issues with your device, try a reset.
Settings > Update & security > Recovery > Reset this PC > This provides you with two options: 1. keep my files and 2. remove everything Keep my files
Does just as its name describes. If you choose the setting you can reinstall Windows 10 without having to back up any of the pictures, videos, music and documents that you have stored on it.

Guys,

Would you please give me a hand in this one. I use Windows 10 32-bit, build 10240, which came after I upgraded from Windows 7, having no problems at all, keeping my apps and files.

Now, I had option in WU to update to 1511 10586 recently, couple of weeks ago, it failed at 32% and 6% on Installing drivers. Then, I downloaded MCT and made and DVD with the installation and repeated everything. It failed again at same point. I read about problems with SD Card, I have none of it. Then I checked files setupact and setaperr, where I found that my Gamepad has error, I pulled USB Dongle out of computer. Another error was WLAN, but I do not have it, only cable modem router, connected directly to computer by cable.

I use PS2 mouse, there is no USB Peripherals connected and desperately want to upgrade do 10586 build. Everytime it failed at 32% point, and restored my previous version.

Could you help please.

My Parents figured it was time to upgrade to ten so I made up a disc and upgraded both their computers to 10 build 10586 successfully. I had already had 10, I got new parts so I upgraded via a disk my dad made when 10 first came around, build 10240.

I want to play Forza 6 but unfortunately it isn't supported on my build of Win 10 and security is better on 10586 yada yada yada. I insert the same disk, upgrade begins, it goes through the whole process on the purple screen and when it goes for the first reboot, it boots back up into startup repair asking me to choose keyboard language. I choose a shut down and when the computer boots back up it tells me,

"Installation Failed in Safe_OS Phase With an Error During BOOT Operation 0xC1900101 ? 0x20017"

I have tried many of the suggested fixes, I have:
1. Tried installing with all USB ports vacant
2. Removed my wireless adapter
3. Installed using a clean boot
4. Removed IIS and its associated user
5. Completely uninstalled my antivirus
There may be more but I dont remember

Fresh Install is not an option so please dont suggest it, theres got to be a way around this issue.

I have attached the error log of my latest attempt at upgrading.

I've also heard that downloading the ISO and then modifying some intel file could be a possible fix but Id rather try something that doesn't include modifying the OS, that might bring up a "not genuine" error later as I have heard.happens.

Hello everybody,

I had a problem with updating Windows 7, it just hanged on "Checking for uptades"... I've read other topics concerning this issue and followed instructions to remove "wuauserv" from the registry.

The next step was to run "%SystemRoot%\System32\rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection AutoUpdate 132 %SystemRoot%\inf\au.inf" from the run box, but that step gave me error "Installation failed".

Now I can't even start Windows Update service, I'm getting error "Windows cannot check for update because service is not running..."

Any solutions? How to install wuauserv?

Version 10.0.14372 Build 14372 is the one I am running,
I don't know what happened but it is just stuck there at 0%.

I tried several solutions that I found on this forum and googling around but no success so far
The main two that I tried several times were
----1----
stopping the wuauserv by going into CMD as an administrator and running
net stop wuauserv

then deleting all the files in C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution

then restarting the service and requesting the update again but still at 0% even after leaving my computer on for a couple of days.

-----2-------
the second one was using the "Update troubleshooter" from windows which is linked both here and in the Microsoft Forums but that didn't do anything.
I tried to do both by doing slight variations during the process such as stopping/restarting the bits service after stopping /restarting the wuauserv (first method), or restarting the computer before running the commands.

But no success yet.
I don't feel reinstalling windows and installing all my programs again since I am crunching hours trying to finish a project and the only reasons why I am desperate to fix this problem is because I am getting a warning saying that my PC will restart every few hours If I don't solve this issue.

Hello!

I have been a Windows 10 Insider since the beginning. My main "test" machine for the builds is on my Mac but in Parallels Desktop. I'm considering moving to Boot Camp instead and just use Parallels to boot from the Boot Camp partition if I need OSX and Windows 10 side by side for specific tasks.

My question is this: Will I still be considered an Insider (or rather, still activated) if I install a fresh new insider build on Boot Camp and just sign in to my MS account? I'm planning to use the ESD file that updated my build to 10240. Once that is done, I'll just delete my current VM. Just to be clear, I am not trying to migrate the Win10 VM itself to a Boot Camp partition. Since that in itself is quite a hassle to do and considering a boatload of hurdles to overcome.

Oh and please tell me if I posted this question on the correct category thread and move it accordingly if needed.

Thanks! ^_^

Is your version 14393 an Insider version?? If not you can not update to 14905 or 14915.These versions are exclusively, for now at least, reserved for the Insider. The standard version (official general release) is 14393.105 .

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.

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.

Downloaded the Windows 10 1607 ISO (which includes the Anniversary Update) and tried an upgrade install in Clean Boot mode, both with and without internet connection - installation froze at exactly the same place, after the second restart.

Basically my old HDD died from bad sectors and I had to format and install Windows 7 Enterprise on a back up hdd that was flooded with useless documents from the past.

Went ahead done what I had to do and left Windows to check for updates, Steam install some games and League of Legends update.

However everything finished but Windows was still checking for updates and I noticed the svchost.exe (netsvcs one) uses about 1.5 GB out of 4 RAM. Immediately knew that this was caused by the Windows Update service that's under it.

However turning Windows Update off is never a smart thing to do and I don't have the kind of time to manually download updates.

I know that it will probably blast me with 200+ updates (has happened in the past but never used up so much RAM and finished way faster than 6 hours with all my usual post installation stuff.

Anyways some info you should probably know:
-I'm using a Wireless adapter (TP-LINK TL-WN722N) and I have read threads here that Windows Update would sometimes fail to do what it should with Wireless adapters, unfortunatelly that isn't an option at the moment.
-Resetting Windows Update manually and through Fix It doesn't work.

So first thing I'm looking at is updating the Windows Update client, please do tell if you think otherwise, or if not link me to the newest Windows update client or probbably any hotfixes that could fix the problem (never done this before and wouldn't want to mess up, so I decided to ask you guys )

After installing the Windows 10 Anniversary Build (1607) startup takes about 90 seconds to complete. There is a black screen that appears after the HP logo and the spinning circle appears. This black screen is shown for about 90 seconds before startup continues. This problem occurred last year on this laptop when I initially installed Windows 10. It is definitely related to the fact that the machine has two video adapters. An AMD Radeon adapter and an Intel adapter. If I disable either adapter, it boots quickly. The problem with turning off either adapter is that the screen resolution is not correct. Circles look elliptical. I found a better fix for this last year but I have forgotten what it was. So now startup has regressed to the former problem. Does anyone know what the fix is? Before the anniversary update, it was working with both cards enabled.  1) This is NOT a virus. So don't even go there.2) I have used device manager to disable the adapters and  uninstall drivers. Windows 10 reinstalled drivers; no help3) Used AMDs device detection app; it reported the latest driver was installed4) Did a hard reset on the laptop

A few weeks ago MS Released build 14901. As I'm on the fast ring, got and installed the build. Then it released 14905. But installations would always fail. It would show me the installation process and then restart (as it usually would). However after logging in I would see that I'm still on build 14901. A minute later there would be a popup message saying that "some updates were not installed, select this message for more details". None were given when I did.

I thought I'd just wait for the next build, that it was a problem with 14905. But now that the next build, 14915 is out, I still keep running into the same problem.

Unfortunately, I cannot uninstall updates (update history is empty), nor can I roll back to the previous build through advanced startup ("there was a problem rolling back to your previous build, try resetting this PC first").

I currently cannot afford to reset this PC, is there another way?

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 Start Menu program list (A - Z list) as well as the "most used" and "recently added" lists contain icon tiles for the installed programs.

system reserved: 500 mb
C: boot, page file, primary partition
E: logical drive
F: logical drive
I would like to do a clean install with WIN 10 Anniversary Update (1607), and convert my disk from BIOS to UEFI.
What modifications would i need to do to GPTgen while upgrading and maintaining my programs and data?

Thanks

A:clean install with anniversary update & disk conversion BIOS to UEFI

Modifications....none.

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. You will need to confirm that in your BIOS. Or to check with in windows.....in the search bar of cortana, type system information and when the window pops up, scroll down to BIOS mode......here's mine.

I am trying to get my PC to upgrade to insider build 14332. At the moment I am on build 14316.

I have sometimes seen build 14332 available in Settings/Update, but after trying to get this, the PC is now stuck with 'Preparing to install updates 100%' There is no $windows directory, though this may of got deleted when I cleaned up system files. There is about 6GB of free space on the SSD partition.

What can I do to get the upgrade to run?

A:Build 14332 upgrade stuck 'Preparing to install updates 100%'

I believe you are going to need more room.

Kill the current update attempt, reboot and try it again only skip the Updates part. See if that works.

Filling out your System Specs would be a help.

See here: System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums

Also, how big is the SSD?
