Windows 10 - Won't Upgrade

Recommended Posts

My Windows 10 install won't upgrade to any of builds. I had this issues with my last install as well. I formatted and installed the latest insider build at the time, 16278.

 

Event Viewer, 

Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x80070643: Windows 10 Insider Preview 16299.15 (rs3_release).

 

I've tried this several times (From windows forum)

1. Press Windows Key + X on the keyboard and then select “Command Prompt (Admin)” from the menu.

2. Stop the BITS, Cryptographic, MSI Installer and the Windows Update Services. To do this, type the following commands at a command prompt. Press the “ENTER” key after you type each command.

                           net stop wuauserv

                           net stop cryptSvc

                           net stop bits

                           net stop msiserver

3. Now rename the SoftwareDistribution and Catroot2 folder. You can do this by typing the following commands in the Command Prompt. Press the “ENTER” key after you type each command.

                          ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old

                          ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 Catroot2.old

4. Now, let’s restart the BITS, Cryptographic, MSI Installer and the Windows Update Services. Type the following commands in the Command Prompt for this. Press the ENTER key after you type each command.

                        net start wuauserv

                        net start cryptSvc

                        net start bits

                        net start msiserver

5. Type Exit in the Command Prompt to close it and then restart the computer.

 

I've tried downloading the latest ISO and install using the setup.exe with that. Any ideas? I've searched this issue to death and don't' want to reinstall again.

What build are you currently on and what build are you trying to install?

Hello,

 

Try exiting the Windows Insider Preview program, which will hopefully revert Windows back to the last production build.  Then ago ahead and try doing the upgrade again.  Does that make any difference?

 

Regards,

download the iso, create bootable media or mount iso, install windows (in-place upgrade versus clean installation).

 

make sure you have no pending updates that require restart before upgrading windows to next version.

Thanks Everyone. I downloaded an ISO a and tried to upgrade from that and it did the same thing. It gets all the way to installing then says "Installation Failed". I'll try upgrading to the latest public build soon.

Seems to be a stuck update.. I've deleted references to this update in the registry, still won't budge..

Here is the log,

This looks like the problem.. Just need to figure out how to fix it. 

 

There is a file referenced to that object,

fe2ba97f-43c5-48be-97e6-acb9de47c182.AggregatedMetadata.cab

 

I've tried using ResetWUEng from https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/Reset-Windows-Update-Agent-d824badc

 

 

I've tried installing that cab file with DSIM, with no luck. Just says it can't find it.  I'm just going to reinstall. No more insider builds for me. I think what happened, my windows install got screwed during an update, and some files are mismatched. I've checked the image and file integrity, everything checked out. But, I'm tired of messing with it. Just wanted to give an update.
