Hey, ???

I'm just getting a Windows update now (ca. 10:13 AM Brisbane Australia) - my laptop screen suddenly went black and when things reappeared, previously-open windows were misaligned and differently sized.

The Windows Settings box which had been showing downloads (I had hit "search for updates") was blank. I rebooted it and it shows "Feature update to Windows 10, version 1607" downloading. I'd researched 1607 and had understood it amounted only to a download in megabytes if you already had 1511 (which I do).

I'm on metred connection - is this going to happen all the time??

Don't know you're whole situation, but that wording and the size of ~3GB sounds an awful lot like the Anniversary Update download.

Just thought - if mods don't object - I'd post a reference on this board to another post I've just made elsewhere (not really sure where best to post the original), alarmed at the size of the Anniversary Download (3+ GB) which I'd understood would be in megabytes if you had 1511 already.

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 had that also with this update.
So here is what I did to get over it.
I restarted it then ran the Disc Clean Up app
Which cleared all traces from the Disc
Then let it download and install, which took some time
Then it installed to 30% then Restarted then finished at 100%
Which again sat there for some time then flashed up it had finished and now running all ok on all my systems
Hope that may hopefully help you with your problem
Let us know how you get on
The one thing I found with this one, you cant rush it

Normally, you check the Microsoft Update Catalog to grab stuff. But this is a cumulative update that's been superseded by a later update. Looks like MS is removing older cumulative updates when they post newer ones.

Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3194496)

Three days ago my desktop tried to update 1607 3 times. Each time on reboot it says failed to update and reverts. Each day it tries again at shutdown.

Yesterday my second(son's) computer updated and all I could see was a black screen with a circle. Had to do a repair and it reverted back 2 two updates. Note, this computer does not have integrated graphics - so that fix process would not work.

Now the wife's computer wants to update but I am not restarting it - if hers goes down it will be hell in my household.

I looked on the web and don't see much about this update getting fixed by Microsoft. Any ideas what I should do? My main computer is asking to try again and it will just fail or worse - black screen. I told the family not to shutdown the wife's but I know at some point it will try to do the update on its own.

This is the worst mess we have ever had, but all I see are web pages about the anniversary update - not this one.

After getting my new laptop a couple months ago, I decided not to do do Windows Updates for fear of encountering the problems of the Anniversary Update that were reported. Now I heard that a fix was finally included and decided to go ahead and allow my computer to update. It downloaded 8 different items successfully, but only 7 of them installed. The one that failed was called something like "1607 Feature Update". I believe 1607 is a number associated with the Anniversary update, although I could be mistaken. But after rebooting my computer after the other updates installed, I don't notice anything different, so it looks like I don't have any new features.

Is the 1607 Feature Update the Anniversary update that was supposed to give us new features? Will my computer still be secure without it? It's mainly the updated security that caused me to do Windows Updates at all.

Yes. It's a big download (3 to 4 GB) and will do a full install taking an hour or so, rather than the quicker patching that Cumulative Updates do.






Will my computer still be secure without it? It's mainly the updated security that caused me to do Windows Updates at all.



Absolutely. All security fixes are released in the Cumulative Updates, there's one for each of the versions: the Anniversary Update (1607), the Fall Update (1511) and even the original release (12040). See the Update History here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/...update-history

Windows 10 Version 1607 driver signing changes - gHacks Tech News

(hit link ^^ for entire story, snippet below):



Microsoft announced recently that the upcoming version 1607 of Windows 10, known as the Anniversary Update, will only load kernel mode drivers that are digitally signed by Microsoft.

The change won't affect all systems however the company notes, as only new installations are affected in the beginning.

Starting with new installations of Windows 10, version 1607, the previously defined driver signing rules will be enforced by the Operating System, and Windows 10, version 1607 will not load any new kernel mode drivers which are not signed by the Dev Portal.

The list of exceptions to the new policy is long. Below is the most important information in regards to the new kernel mode drivers policy:
PCs upgraded to Windows 10 Build 1607 from a previous version of Windows (for instance Windows 10 version 1511) are not affected by the change.
PCs without Secure Boot functionality, or Secure Boot off, are not affected either.
All drivers signed with cross-signing certificates that were issued prior to July 29, 2015 will continue to work.
Boot drivers won't be blocked to prevent systems from failing to boot. They will be removed by the Program Compatibility Assistant however.
The change affects only Windows 10 Version... Read more

A:Windows 10 Version 1607 (Anniversary Update) driver signing changes

This is kind of old news in that this change was announced last year but got delayed. I'm not sure what the practical implications are in that anyone loading unsigned drivers probably doesn't have Secure boot on. This one is a non-issue.

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.

For a final fix to all older already made up flash drives for the Threshold 2 update last November as well as for Windows Insider P... Read more

Hello. . .
I use the fingerprint reader to login to my Latitude E5550 every time.  However, I was unable to do so after the latest Windows 10 update (version 1607).  

It did still show in the Windows Device Manager (i.e., no "Unknown Device" listed)
I went into the DDP Console to try to register a new fingerprint (for troubleshooting), but it wasn't reading the swipes
I attempted to update to the latest firmware/drivers, but that only caused unknown devices to show up in the Device Manager (ControlVault Firmware v3.3.15.0 and ControlVault Drivers v3.3.14.68)
Switched back to the older driver (v3.0.48.26) and all devices were once again recognized

Any suggestions for how to get around this?  It's not the end of the world, but I *really* like using the fingerprint reader (I paid extra for) to login.  If I can provide additional helpful information, please let me know.
Thanks!

A:Window 10 Anniversary Update Version 1607

Hi,Firstly I'd like to clarify: I'm not working for any hardware or software vendor. Your printer/scanner had been working perfectly for few years or even decades and now it won't do anything or only few things because of a new Operating system.Microsoft, Apple will never say "Warning: Using this new product, your existing hardware may NOT work at all". They only say their new products will blah blah ....They promise everything then put all the unhappiness, blames to hardware vendors.I believe developing new products is much cheaper than supporting older products and each product must have a life cycle, it must die loudly or quietly and the Operating systems will kill our hardware quicker. Many people just upgrade for a sake of the "bleeding edge", never know and/or research what the existing investments at home will work or not.Just my 2 cents.

Howdy,

I have been trying to download and install Cumulative Update, Win 10, Version 1607 for x64-based systems since Sept. 15 but so far I am coming up empty. I realize the help forums have been loaded with folks having the same problem but I decided to start my own thread instead of joining in ones already started in case it is a result of what kind of computer I am using and the Programs I am running on it.

First of all, I am running on an All-In-One HP Pavilion 23-g017c (x64) AMD A6-5200 APU w/Radeon HD Graphics, running Windows 10, Version 1607, Build 14393.105, using the Edge Browser while utilizing Windows Firewall and Windows Defender as my major security programs.

I have tried daily to install the update via Windows Update but it does not install for one reason or the other. Some of the threads I have visited the last few days suggest to manually download and install it from the Windows Update Catalog. I tried this manual install both yesterday and today and came up empty both times.

I have never had any major problems with Windows 10 when it comes to receiving updates so this has me dead in my tracks.

So, basically I have three questions:

(1) Any ideas of anything I can do to get this update on my computer? or

(2) If people like me are having trouble with a particular update will Microsoft eventually come out with a fix? and/or

(3) Does Microsoft have a link for people with update problems like the one I am experiencing?

My desktop and laptop have updated to Version 1607, Build 14393.187 (Windows 10 Home), and the update conveniently uninstalled three of my favorite programs--Windows Movie Maker 6, Chess Titans, and Spider Solitaire.

Funny thing is that Revo Uninstaller shows both Windows Movie Maker 6 and MS Game for Windows 8 listed as installed.

Its normal behaviour for the installer to leave this folder behind. It allows you to roll back if something went wrong. If you're sure everythings behaving normally then yes you can remove the folder. Use built in disk cleaner, click on c: then click the clean up system files button. Make sure old system install is ticked.

Hello, my Windows Update is not working: it returns the error 80073712. It has been like this for several months. I tried to do sfc /scannow but it says: "beginning system scan. This process will take some time" and 2 seconds after it says "Windows Resource Protection could not preform the requested operation". My Windows Help and Support doesn't work either as well as my Windows Features (when I open "Turn Windows features on and off" it returns a blank box). I also tried the "Windows6.1-KB947821-v27-x86.msu" but it does not repair the error. I also scanned my system with Malwarebytes Antimalware and avast! to see if it was a malware or virus but i do not find anything.

In the other hand, my date and time is working as well as my search box.

I do not know what I have to do.
I have a Windows 7 Ultimate x86.
Thank you for your help

PS: I also tried some other things but I do not remember anymore what they were

Have Lenovo v570 and 2 nights ago MS pushed update version 1607 for windows 10. PC had basically a black screen with blue Windows logo in center of screen with a small spinning wheel like in lower center. I let the go for several hours and then pushed to old power button. PC restarted and went back to same position. Waited several hours and nothing changed. Rebooted and held Windows key down and was presented with options to continue with Windows 10 or advanced options. Did continue and same result. Next time did advanced options and tried to go back to previous update and it failed saying select Reset PC option under advance options. I did not do this as I am hesitant as I understand it the Reset will remove all my applications but leave my data. I am not sure what that means, Office, TurboTax, etc, etc???
Did some research on line ... and saw something that said after restarting the third time Windows will automatically restore back to prior version. Well that did not happen.
Just wondering if anyone has thought on this and what action should I take. I do have a system restart set but forget when I last did that -- think right after I went to 10 earlier this year. That could be option but not sure what is total ramification if I chose that option.
Thanks in advance.

Is anyone else having issues with 1607? Mine is that I lose data within folders on a drive. When I reboot, the drive disappears. I have switched cables and Sata slots and it is still the same. I am running a WD Red NAS 6 TB drive. I have installed it into another Windows 10 PC and there does not seem to be any issues.

I downloaded 1607 ISO from Microsoft and created the bootable USB with Rufus.

I know there has been issues with 1607 and Microsoft are aware of it and have given a KB update which I have but it has made no difference.

Also, how can I download a 1511 ISO please?

Hello All, here is a good one:  (Maby a MOD will give this to development to take a look at this, unless someone hasseen this before????....) I have Several Thinkpad Yogas (20CDCTO1WW), After installing Win10 1607 & Microsoft Office (tried 2010 - 2016)All experience the same problem. If you open MS Word (Or Excel) Click insert, then select object, select object type - Microsoft Equation 3.0 & selectok, you cannot select any symbols.  When Clicking any button, it is like the calibration is way off.If you click the title bar to move the equation symbols, the bar moves down and to the left. I have confirmed this is something to do with the Windows 10 1607 & the Yoga.  The previous version of Win 10 itworked properly.  I also tried this on various models of Desktops  & Win 10 1607 and it works properly. I have tried different drivers, versions of Word, BIOS,  external mouse, but it makes no difference,  It has something to do with Win 10 1607 (Build 14393.222) & Yoga or so it seems. Maybe some type of driver issue?, if anyone has any clues I would appreciate it.           Thanks in advance!

Windows 10 Version 1607 driver signing changes - gHacks Tech News

Microsoft announced recently that the upcoming version 1607 of Windows 10, known as the Anniversary Update, will only load kernel mode drivers that are digitally signed by Microsoft.

The change won't affect all systems however the company notes, as only new installations are affected in the beginning.

Starting with new installations of Windows 10, version 1607, the previously defined driver signing rules will be enforced by the Operating System, and Windows 10, version 1607 will not load any new kernel mode drivers which are not signed by the Dev Portal.

The list of exceptions to the new policy is long. Below is the most important information in regards to the new kernel mode drivers policy:
PCs upgraded to Windows 10 Build 1607 from a previous version of Windows (for instance Windows 10 version 1511) are not affected by the change.
PCs without Secure Boot functionality, or Secure Boot off, are not affected either.
All drivers signed with cross-signing certificates that were issued prior to July 29, 2015 will continue to work.
Boot drivers won't be blocked to prevent systems from failing to boot. They will be removed by the Program Compatibility Assistant however.
The change affects only Windows 10 Version 1607. All previous versions of Windows are not affected.
Microsoft notes that the change is done to make Windows more secure for end-users.

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!

Hello Everyone-

The place that I work with is tasked with creating a customized tablet to have in our showrooms. We were planning to use the Surface Pro 4 with Windows 10 version 1607. We were successful locking down with what we wanted on the machine through Group Policy on a Windows 10 1511 test machine. We exported the 1511's .xml and tried to import onto a test machine with the 1607 build and just did not work.

The desktop/display screen was missing two customized videos we created as Internet Shortcuts, but more importantly after the export the 1607 was not locked down as much at the 1511 test machine. What I mean is in 1511 a customer would not have been able to access via a right click on the start menu the Control panel, Command Box, etc. Plus in the 1607 they were able to run searches by clicking on the magnifying glass in the task bar to pretty much access anything on the device.

Our goal for the 1607 device is for it to have Automatic Sign on through Group Policy with the each machine in one OU in AD and having one user name for that OU as well. So after the Automatic Sign on the employee could show a costumer tiles that have been customized with out Content but a child or anyone else could not access games, internet, or delete our tiles.

We just don't understand why it worked on the test machine with Windows 10 1511 but back fired on the 1607 test machine. We have tried to Use AppLocker but that has caused some wrenches on our test machines as well ... Read more

Morning.
This is the first time I am trying to use the Calendar since I bought this laptop 6 months ago.
I never logged on to the MS store.
The Calendar app came pre-loaded on my pc when I purchased it from Best Buy.

Windows 10 home premium.
Version 1607 (after the latest updates from MS.)
I log on with a local account.

I "left click" on "time of day" in the lower right corner of my screen and I get a pop up calendar.
(So, I'm thinking, "this is good.")
But when I click on the "+" symbol to add an event, the Calendar app tries to start, but then simply disappears.

The same thing happens if I click on the "Start" button and then scroll to "Calendar" and click on it.
It tries to start (A blue Calendar screen appears for a moment) but then disappears.

Hmmmm.

I did an Internet search and a bunch of folks describe what sounds like a similar issue.
The good folks seem to recommend different fixes.
And some folks say they have not been able to fix the issue.

Couple of questions, if I might ..............
Do I need to be signed into Windows 10 with a MS account in order to run Calendar ?
(I'll bet the answer is no. But I "have" read a couple of "How to use the Calendar app" documents where it says you DO need to use an MS account.)

Has anyone experienced the above issue ?
And if so, has anyone managed to fix it ?
Or does anyone have some advice ?

Microsoft still hasn?t released the Anniversary Update to Windows 10 Mobile users, but that doesn?t mean they?ve completely forgotten about their smartphone customers.

Windows 10 Mobile gets a pre Anniversary Update release, to 10586.545

I have tried every suggested fix I can find - nothing works.
I have tried installing from 1607 ISO - fails
I have tried installing using Windows10Upgrade28084.exe - fails
I have tried letting Microsoft Support have a go - fails

I am unable to find the meaning of the error code above, so there seems to be no way to effect action here.

Hello, fine people of the internet.

First thing, I apologize if this subject have been solved before.
I browsed through older threads for a while, and looked up on Google, but so far I didn't find a solution to my problem, or maybe I missed it.

I'm here because I'm encountering troubles since a couple days, when I installed the Windows 10 anniversary update.

Let me start from the beginning.

A month ago, I bought myself a new, quite powerful MSI laptop.
The main purpose of this laptop is musical production, using Cubase 8 and a couple of other programs.
For a few weeks, everything worked perfectly fine.
This new laptop allowed me to expand dramatically the possibilities of Cubase compared to my old system.
I could run big projects with 60+ tracks, heavy plug-ins and fancy virtual instruments super smoothly.

But a few days ago, the Windows 10 anniversary update installed itself, and since then, I'm having trouble with my programs.
For instance, Cubase shows heavy signs of CPU and RAM usage (called VST performances, in the program itself.
In the task manager, the CPU peaks at 20-25%) on another project I started a week ago or so, comprising 20 tracks, which used to run extremely smoothly (the said VST performances weren't reaching 2% before the update), but now performs super bad (VST performances now show a 20-25% resources usage when the project is loaded but idle, and the counter will suddenly ramp up to 100%, either if the project is idle or playing back, causing mass...

The fans start up but there is no activity on the tower in the way of any blinking lights or beeping sounds. If I power off the pc using the power button, wait about 10 seconds and power on again, the pc will start up as normal. So far for the past 6 days it has required this 2nd attempt to startup the pc every time.

I want to update Windows 10 to build 1607, so I downloaded the Restone ISO and then created an USB bootable drive. I just want to upgrade without losing my files and settings, but the installation wizard tells me I need more room on C: partition, when I currently have around 7 GB free, while it asks for 10 GB of free room in the C: partition. Is it possible to extend the Windows system partition (by shrinking the D: parition), or I risk making the system partition unbootable?

I use EaseUS Partition Master to perform disk and partitions management, but it seems like I can't extend the system partition. I'm able to shrink D: partition, but I can't use the unallocated space to extend the C: partition. Is it possible with another tool or I'd better just make a clean install on the system partition? I have tons of programs installed, and it would take days to install everything again.

I only have one HDD in my laptop, installed in UEFI mode with two GPT data partitions, C: and D: Thanks in advance.

Installation doesn't happen.  MS suggests I check with HP for driver or harware issues.  HP demand money for checking this new computer (still under guarantee).  Although it has not been tested by HP for compatibility with version 1607 yet.   Had previous issues with this machine and HP sent me new set of 5 installation disks to reinstall OS (W10.  Now this!   Can anyone help?  

A:Installing W10 version 1607

Hi, What is the error message ? It doesn't make any sense. One of my very old HP laptop runs Windows 10 1607 without any problem. It's old, very old.      Please run Windows updates manually and slowly to select few updates at a time to see which one won't run before apply 1607. Regards.

How can we modify the Windows Update feature in 8.1 to allow us to choose when Windows is updated & when windows "forces" us to do a reboot ? I'd like to decide when my PC or Tablet reboots, NOT when when Windows decides to do so. - like in the XP Pro OS.
 

A:Windows Update Feature in 8.1?

Go the control panel. Once the window opens. Click on the Windows Update Icon. Once it window opens. Up in the left corner. Click on settings. This should let you change your settings.

Hello,

I recently updated my notebook to Windows 10 Home (1607) from the previous version of Windows 10 Home.

I was in the process of performing a disk-cleanup to regain some space lost during the upgrade (notebook only has 120 gb of storage to begin with) when I noticed some extra partitions that weren't there before the update (I noticed this in the disk defrag app). I then opened EaseUS' partition manager app and saw the following:



Can anyone suggest which of these partitions I can delete/merge into C: to free up extra space? I know Recovery probably shouldn't be touched, but what about the other unallocated partitions? The partition above Recovery looks like it could also be similar (but without the label).

Any help/guidance/advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

A:Which partitions are safe to delete/merge after Windows 10 1607 update

You can very easily add the 17.99 GB unallocated space to C: drive. I'm not sure what the 811 MB partition is after that. Maybe some kind of manufacturer's recovery partition, but it looks too small to be that. You can use MiniTool Partition Wizard to explore the partition and see the folder structure on it without assigning it a drive letter.

I would just add the 17.99GB to C: drive and leave the rest alone.

This AM I had an error message. I selected the "Fix issue" radio button and got an error message "windows 10 couldn't be installed. You can't install windows on a USB flash drive using setup"

I have NO USB flash devices installed, only a USB mouse/keyboard.

This is a long time problem I've noticed with EMET, although it usually happens when updating EMET to a new version.  This time it was an OS upgrade that triggered it. 

To stop onedrive.exe crashing (or any other applications you have set in the application protections list that are crashing) you need to toggle the security setting in EMET, which for some odd reason fixes it.  For example:
1) Turn 'Certificate Pinning' to the opposite of what you currently have it set to, or change the 'Block Untrusted Fonts' to one of the other settings other than what you have it currently set to.  That makes the Quick Profile Name change to 'Custom

Printer drivers must have been added during the Aug upgrade. I have an additional Brother printer on both desktop and laptop. On the desktop is a multi feature laser and on the laptop it is an inkjet.
The laptop had the inkjet become the default printer I discovered when I attempted to print and no result. Checking devices and printers I discovered the new addition and reset the original Brother Laser to be the default.
This additional printer is not in the device manager print queues or printers list.
The printer is labelled as Brother Color Leg Type 1 Class Driver which came along with the new addition
The original printer is Brother HL-3040CN series printer and it is listed in the Device Manager queues but not in the Printers
The Desktop additional printer is an MFC-J450DW ( a multi feature laser) but it is listed in the device manager as the Leg type 1 class driver for its name.
The laptop additional printer is an inkjet type so each machine received a unique, additional printer.
My HL-3040CN is plugged into the Linksky router with its own IP adddress and both computers can access it.
The printer likely was idle when the upgrade install was done with an .iso but I had the internet off in the laptop. I did not disconnect the internet with the desktop for the .iso install. The additional update was done later to get to the .10
I do not have the brand printer software( for all the extras) installed on either machine.

Do I remove this printer through the device manager alt... Read more

I had done an Upgrade from 1511 to 1607 on a client's computer this morning so I grabbed the install.esd, put it on a Thumb drive and sneaker-netted it to my main computer, used the ESDtoISO thingy to create the .iso file, burned it to DVD and Copied it to the Thumb drive [needs about 4.5GB free space]. I have started the install from disc on a Notebook and mounted the file from Thumb drive on a Desktop. An interesting feature or change is it did not prompt to Skip entering the Product Key but instead has a line about I'm reinstalling on this computer. But, on one I chose Not to look for updates and it only wanted the Key entered while the other I chose to let it look for updates, got the line I described. Both are working on the install now. Apparently the I'm reinstalling on this computer is "running home to momma", to take a phrase from Hunt for Red October, to check for a valid install so being connected to the 'net is important in one aspect but not in the other [if one has the Key].

One other thing about the ESDtoISO is you need just under 8GB free space to do the conversion, resulting .iso file is about 4.2GB.

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
Nick

In August I upgraded my Windows 7 Home Premium laptop to Windows 10.  All has worked well for a month now until the Windows 10 version 1607 was highly recommended by Windows10 people. Having kept current with all of the updates faithfully but as soon as I tried (four times) to install Windows 10 version 1607 and then the time-consuming step again of reverting back to the previous Windows version.  So I have hit a brick wall.  I always get the error message: "Low Disk Space".  And Windows continually is reminding me to upgrade to 1607. Like the famous movie, this is a CATCH-22 situation. I read some of the Forum's help and was lead to a link suggested by a HP staffer as the only resolution available.  The link for this Low Disk Space Error problem is http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03736755. I translated the link's Windows 7 instructions into Windows10 style organization of problem resolutions and located the "Files and Folders" section and then followed the Windows 7 steps.  But I still hit a brick wall.  In viewing the hidden files on my Recovery Drive (Drive D I verified that I did not have any personal backup files to occupy space needlessly.  I also cleared out previous System Restores and just did a new System Restore.  But still have the same problem.  It appears I need to expand my Recovery Drive to accomodate Windows 10 version 1607.  But in doing the steps under changing my partitions th...

A:Low Disk Space after Windows10 version 1607 upgrade

Clean EnergyGuru Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!First off, once you did the Upgrade to Win10, that corrupted the HP Recovery information, rendering any HP recovery unlikely.  So, at this point, the Recovery partition serves no useful purpose. If you want to remove it and recover the space, then use this link to download the Minitool Partition Wizard boot ISO file:  Best Free Partition Manager for Windows | MiniTool Partition Free Once you have this, you have a choice of media to create:1) If you can boot from CD, download and install ImgBurn and use the Write Image to Disk option to create a bootable CD.2) If you can boot from USB, download and install RUFUS and use the option to create a bootable USB stick from the ISO file. Boot your PC with the media you created. You should now be able to do partition changes without problems. Second, may be folders on your C: drive named $Windows.~BT and $Windows.~WS. These are used by the Upgrade tool to store files needed for the Upgrade. If these are hidden, will have to change your settings in File Explorer to see them, but once you find them, then remove the folders.Also, you need to remove the Windows.old folder.  Here are the instructions:  http://www.howtogeek.com/223821/what-is-the-windows.old-folder-and-how-do-you-delete-it/Once these are gone, you have a lot more free space in the C: drive.Good Luck

I have one eye (I am blind in one eye since 2006) that is sensitive to brightness and the DARK MODE THEME is really easy on my eye.

I was able to select the dark screen mode via Settings>Personalisation>Colours>Choose your app mode

Is there a way to extend this feature to all screens on Edge or Google Chrome?

Hi All
I'm trying to repair windows update feature in windows 8.1. I have a ton of programs installed on my new HP pc (bought 3/15) that took me months to get right. I really don't want to do a reinstall of 8.1 just to get the windows update to work.
Basically I have 11 updates dated from 9/14 to now that will not install no matter how many times I run the windows update troubleshooter. Most of the updates concern the .NET Framework for 4.5.1 and 4.5.2:
KB2934520
KB2977765
KB2978041
KB2978126
KB2979576
KB3023222
KB3032663
KB3037579
KB2894856

Then I have plain windows 8.1 updates KB2976978 and KB3000850.

I get the following error messages and I run the troubleshooter but the fixes don't stick.
800F0831
80246010
80200001

I've contacted HP and they want to do a complete reinstall of 8.1. I've stressed to them that I don't want to do this because it will wipe everything. I've done the DISM restore health before and it gets stuck on 20% for hours before it finally finishes and tells me it fixed some but can't fix everything. I'm running the windows media installation creation tool onto a usb. Right now it will be done in 10 hours or less.

By the way, I have a Samsung laptop that I bought new in March of 2014 that is running the same version of windows 8.1 64-bit. It has installed all updates with no problem and I've reserved a copy of windows 10. Is there anyway I can fix windows update on my HP desktop using the settings/files from the Samsung laptop?

A:Using DISM to repair Windows update feature of Windows 8.1

HI All
My problem was solved through a combination of this thread and the following link:
https://www.winhelp.us/non-destructi...8-and-8-1.html

For my situation I created installation media for windows 8.1. The winhelp link has instructions for using the installation media tool with (or without) a product key. I didn't have a product key because windows 8.1 came pre-installed on my new HP. I did download a free program called BeLarc Advisor to get the product key for my version of windows. I ended up not needing the product key after all to create the windows.iso file for installation.

I used Rufus to create a bootable usb drive with the windows.iso file from the installation media step.

I downloaded and tried to use the DISM GUI. Unfortunately, there was no install.wim file in the sources folder. I did have an install.esd file (which is the same as the install.wim). The DISM GUI did not work with the install.esd file and I didn't feel comfortable converting the .esd file to a .wim file.

This is the point where I abandoned the steps from this thread on the eight forums website and started at the "Reinstalling windows 8 or 8.1 without loosing personal files, installed programs or apps" portion of the winhelp link.

Please note that I shut off my mcafee protection (spyware and virus, web protection and firewall). I unplugged my printer, external DVD R drive and external hard drive. I also shut off spyware blaster and spyware terminator before I began my ... Read more
