Q: Windows 10 1607 anniversary upgrade fails, unable update Res...

Upgraded my HP Pavilion 500 PC from Windows 7 to Windows 10 without a problem and have been running updates without issues. Now trying to run 1607 anniversary update keep getting "Unable to update reserved partition". Whe I check using "diskmgmt.msc", check properties, right click on Disk 0, I see 100 MB and 100% free. I would have thought there would be a better solution than to go to a web site that wished to sell you software and provide a complex set of instructions. Any ideas??

Preferred Solution: Windows 10 1607 anniversary upgrade fails, unable update Res...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I have a Dell Latitude E6410 that has windows 10 (Build 10240) and has been trying to upgrade to the Anniversary version 1607 for months now.  Every time it fails after the first reboot.  A window dos appears but is too quick to read and then I end up at a blue screen complaining about hardware not being available and then I can pick F9 to boot into alternative OS, which just happens to be windows and then it rolls back the upgrade.
I have tried the Media Creation Tool method also and that did not work either.
I am at a loss on how to get past the upgrade.
Any help is appreciated.

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...

Dear all,
here's a weird issue with an Optiplex 3030 AIO on a customer site...
The system was initially bought with Windows 7 Pro SP1 and back then in late 2015
updated to Windows 10 Pro. Everything was OK so far with this setup - no issues at all.

However - this specific 3030 AIO tries to apply the anniversary update (1607) as well - but fails.
When it's doing this from within windows itself it reboots automatically (as part of the update process)
and starts applying the update - but will hang there at 30% for days (started update at friday afternoon - met customer at monday... and the Optiplex 3030AIO still showed the spinning circles
at 30 percent.
We tried this 3 times within the last 8 weeks (and cleaned up SoftwareDistribution\ folder after each fail) with no success in installing the anniversary update. After a cold reboot - Windows 10 rolls back
to the previous version and keeps working fine until the Windows Update magic decides that it's time
for the automatic upgrade again...
When this happened for the 4th time (earlier this week) we removed this Optiplex 3030 AIO from
the customer site and thought it would be good to reinstall from scratch -  using the latest installation media (USB) offered by the most current media creation tool.

Problem - we cannot even do a clean install of the anniversary release - although DELL claims that
the Optiplex 3030 AIO is fully supported (see SLN297954 in DELL knowledge base).
When doing so it never finishes ... Read more

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

2) Then go to Quick ... Read more

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 everyone.

Thanks in advance for taking the time out to check my thread.

Here is my problem.

I am running windows 10 pro which I have installed to SSD.

When the anniversary update released: I could not update it. It would download the update prepare the install and restart my PC then at around 30% it restarts again and come backs goes from 30 to 32% and black screens and does nothing. I have tried leaving it for several hours. With nothing its just a black screen. (No spinning dots)

So I gave up on it for a while. Now recently I wanted to try the game "killer Instinct" from the MS store and it said i needed the anniversary update in order to try and here I am trying to install the anniversary update and its still doing the same thing as mentioned above.

I have tried several times.

I have tried "troubleshooting" windows updates via control panel.

A friend of mine suggested doing a clean install with a 1607 latest build of windows 10. However I want to avoid that route as I had tremendous trouble installing windows 10 intially where it would black screen. After the install process. Unless I disabled the integrated GPU in device manager before installing Nvidia drivers.

I dont want to go through that again.

So I'm hoping for a more conviennt fix.

Thanks to alll

All responses / suggestions appreciated.

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

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.

I am running Windows 10 Pro 64bit  on my Probook 4520S. When checking for update Windows found the update to the Anniversary Update. But it fails to install.During installation of the update the laptop boots a couple of times (which is normal) but at some point during one of the reboots, the machine hangs. Completely blank screen. So, I don't get an error code on screen. Only thing I can do at that time is turning off/back on the laptop, after that the laptop turns back on and Windows is automatically starting the rollback of the Anniversary update. Leaving me with 1511 version.Already tried following (a couple of times):disable antivirus, clean boot (no addititional services loaded at boot). Manually forcing the update by downloading it from here: https://support.microsoft.com/nl-nl/help/12387/windows-10-update-history?ocid=update_setting_client Same issue is consequently occuring. Update starts, machine is rebooted at some point during the upgrade process, and hangs during the reboot with blank screen and no responsive keyboard. Is there any other solution you can think of which helps me to update Windows 10 with the Anniversary Update? Thanks,Mathijs

I have been running Windows 10 on a pretty plain Dell Inspiron. Today it asked if I wanted to install an update so I let it. After almost an hour of showing a progress meter and seeming to finish that phase, it rebooted and proceeded to seem to install but then put up a message about "install ?? this could take a while" so I walked away and when I came back after an hour I had a blank screen and just a rotating busy symbol. I am assuming this is the "anniversary" update since no other updates have ever taken this long or acted this way, except for the original Windows 10 install/update itself.

So after waiting 6 hours, I powered it off and back on and as it came up it indicated "trying to fix the install" then briefly brought up the "Dell label screen" and the usual box picture and went back to the blank screen with a busy rotating symbol.

Can someone point to a site that indicates how to get around this and restore back to where it was? Right now I have a totally unusable PC and do not know how to proceed. Thanks

By the way is it labeled "anniversary update"???

Windows 10 has been running fine for some time, but attempt to update to Anniversary fails. The update runs fine until the point after restart where it states "The machine will restart several times"; soon into that sequence when  attempting a restart, the machine switches itself off instead. When I then switch it back on manually, the update is lost and the system resets itself to the previous Windows version.A Microsoft technician worked for hours before concluding that I would have to do a full, clean WIndows 10 installation, after which all files and applications would be lost and needed to be reinstalled. I have been wondering if the faulty restart behaviour is related to the BIOS somehow, and I have had it reinstalled from HPs site with no change. So, my questions areCan BIOS be the cause? Btw, I have turned the fast restart option (under power schemes) off.I note that I got a "legacy" BIOS installed. Is UEFI available for this laptop, and would that make a difference?If I do install UEFI, will Windows 10 and applications run as before or could other issues arise?

Hello, I am the owner of a small laptop, an Acer Switch 10, which only have 32GB of SSD memory inside. I also have a microSD *always* in of 128GB, and a normal 500GB HDD on the keyboard, if plugged, of course.

The internal memory has 6GB free right now, and I can't free anymore as windows folder has over 12GB and total usable space is about 19-21GB.

When I try to launch 1607 update with the upgrade tools, it tells me that I need 16GB free, and doesn't give me the option to choose any other device to store the installation.

If I use media download tool it tells me that it needs 8GB and also doesn't give me the option to select another storage.

Is there a way to install this update? Is it impossible? Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance!

A:Not enough space for anniversary update (1607)

Hello, whilst you can manually download an iso and create a bootable medium from it (mounting it would not be a viable option for you given your constraints) bear in mind a copy of much of your Windows folder will be created as Windows.old on your disk.. for possible rollback recovery. That will be there unless you delete it manually for 10 days from the upgrade.

Now people with 100s of Gb spare on C are also getting this message. One possibility is that (I believe) some 450Mb of unallocated space is needed on the disk. I had a quick read around on this and causes seem obscure 'MS is working on it'

However you are tightly constrained.. and one thing you don't want happening is partitions which are part of the Windows environment being created on a different physical disk.

The iso is about 3.08Gb if I recall.

a. Manually download an iso and create a bootable medium
b. Research space issues
c. Create a disk image of your working PC for security (Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot medium + external storage
d. Attempt the upgrade.

Note that for 64 bits, MS states 2GbRam + 20Gb hard disk min. Well, my C: is just over 40Gb, no Windows.old, and I have programs installed on D: not C: and data mostly NOT on C: so 20Gb seems very optimistic.

This one has to be the worst of them all. It has taken us back to '90s era when we had to do such stupid things such as take out USBs while installation, install drivers and do backups and all that stuff.

Few days back i decided to install the Annversary Update ie. 1607 update as people said it had many new and improved features. But unfortunately it turned out to be my worst ever Windows experience EVER. Even worse than the Windows 98!

Following unsolved issues which i have been facing so far:-

1) Initially it refused to update and i had to download the HUGE update again and again and again. Subsequently i realised that like old old days i had to remove the wireless receiver of my mouse/keyboard to complete the installation.

2) Even though the installation is complete, 6 out of 10 times windows gets stuck on the black screen and process ONLY if i remove the wireless usb receiver.

3) Cold boot and resuming from hibernation now takes AGES! Prior to the 'much awaited' update a cold boot took around 50 seconds and resuming from hibernation tool hardly 15-20 seconds. Now cold boot takes around 2-3 minutes and resuming from hibernation takes around 1.5-2 minutes. It always gets stuck on the login screen and processes the entered password as if it is negotiating from servers situated on Pluto!

4) My reliable tp link wireless adpater automatically gets unplugged every 2-3 hours or so. I have to unplug replug to make it work everytime.

I did a clean install of 1607 on a separate partition and encountered wifi and graphic issues. Unsuccessful searched for appropriate drivers which may be found with further searching.

However, my 3 year old Toshiba is running great on build 1511. Updates to 1511 were received this past Tuesday. And personally, for my needs, 1607 does not bring that much to the table. I did try the new Edge extensions but found the speed performance lacking.

Will older builds continue to receive updates ?

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.

I upgraded to Win 10 shortly before the end of the initial upgrade period.  I waited to see what issues were coming out and hoping there would be fixes by the time I did the upgrade.  Once I did the upgrade everything actually went OK.  So now, I just did the Anniversary update.  Most everything is as before EXCEPT now the Audio becomes distorted.  This happens 95%+ of the time when tracks change or I click another track or whatever causes a "start playing this audio file/clip" (either from me clicking another track or software wants to play something e.g., a game, DVD playback, CD playback, online, ...). I found a sort of solution by Turning OFF all Enhancements (I have a Conexant 20672 chipset).  And I mean, checking the box for "Disable all enhancements", not simply unchecking the individual enhancements so they would not be active.  Unfortunately, this also means that the laptop speakers now sound so FLAT it's a real dissappointment. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers (manually) but this didn't resolve the issue.  I'm hoping someone in the community may have a solution.  The W520 is great! (albeit a little aged) and I'm not in a position at this time to even think about replacing it.

But with this upgrade, the option is not available. Thanks in advance for listening Joe PS HP, if you are listening,if this refuses to proceed, you have lost a customer for life!

I have held off going from Win 7 to Win 10 for a number of reasons, including several hardware upgrades over the last 6 months. (I actually have one more hardware upgrade I would like to do, going to a M.2 drive once a 500 GB drive comes out, which may or may not happen soon.) Not in a hurry as Win 7 is working fine.

So, browsing this forum occasionally, I see the Windows 10 Anniversary Update is coming out soon-ish, no firm date. Plus, the end of the "free" upgrade period is also coming up.

Is there any advantage to waiting and seeing if the Windows 10 Anniversary Update comes out first, and performing the upgrade on that version as opposed to doing an upgrade now, and then updating with the anniversary edition? It is possible that the free upgrade period could be extended a bit as well (not starting a rumor, just thinking) that could allow this to happen.

A:Upgrade from Win 7 and Windows 10 Anniversary Update edition

Perhaps, upgrade now and get to know how Windows 10 works, so that by the time " anniversary update" comes along, you will enjoy it more.

Free upgrade period appears to be unchanged, at least for now. Nothing is definite. Never say never.

I'm helping a friend with her Toshiba laptop. It came with Windows 7 and she had updated it to windows 10 but could not update to the anniversary version.

The anniversary update repeatedly failed for me too. So I did a sfc/scannow which found errors and fixed them. I rebooted, turned off the windows firewall, and tried the anniversary update again. This time it started installing, warning me it will restart several times. But after a while it just shutdown and stayed shutdown. So after a long wait I restarted manually. It booted up with a message saying it was restoring the "previous version" which turned out to be windows 10.

I've tried the following based on other forum posts, unfortunately without success:
1)  Leaving this running overnight.
2)  Unplugging all USB devices.
3)  Installing upgrade from USB drive.
4)  Installing from a clean boot.
5)  Installing with wireless adaptor disabled.
In each case it hangs at the spinning dots.  After a few forced reboots the upgrade rolls back fairly quickly to the previous version.  One thing I haven't tried is a clean install, as if it fails I'll not have anything to roll back to.  Also it's unclear if my existing Windows 10 license will carry over.
Any help appreciated.

I have installed WIN10 (ver. 1511) a couple of months ago. While trying to solve a driver issue I've been advised (by MICROSOFT) to upgrade to ver.1607. Several upgrade attempts all failed (with code 0xd000009a) What does it mean? Any more details needed? How can I resolve this? Can't find any clue on the net for this code.

My new Logitech HD720 webcam ( 10 months old) that uses USB and sits on top of my laptop worked great under windows 10 .. but since the July 29th / 30th windows 10 anniversary upgrade my web cam doesn't work at all ..

..it recognizes the hardware but won't display an image . .I have reinstalled the Logitech software but it still fails to work ..

I'm sure I read somewhere that this is a legitimate issue and unless you 'tweak the registry' the webcam won't work until windows 10 does another future upgrade to fix this problem ...

Ideas ??

Windows 10 1511 will not update to 1607 by any method. Updates always complete to 100% then revert. Computer is a Dell Vostro 1720.

Background: The computer never appeared to update automatically, but there was never any error code. I tried to use the Windows 10 upgrade assistant. The upgrade would go through download and install to 100% but then restart back to version 1511 with no error message. Finally, I downloaded the 1607 iso, extracted it to my hard disk, and installed from there. Again the update went to 100% and then reverted back to 1511, but this time it gave the error message 0xC1900101 - 0x20017 "The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during BOOT operation."

I have found several threads about this error, and it seems most likely that there is a driver conflict of some kind. I have looked at the setuperr.log from $WINDOWS.~BT/Sources/Panther/ directory but I do not see what is causing the error. Can anyone help with guidance on this?

Perhaps someone can tell me what went wrong here.

I have a bottom-rung Dell Inspiron 330s that I inherited from a family member. It shipped with Win7 Home, and while it was eligible I had updated it to Win10 1511. Very little if anything on it ... pretty much a vanilla system. Not even third-party drivers. Every few months I'd turn it on to get updates. MBR hard disk, no UEFI.

Since it's unused at present I decided to try the Anniversary Update as a practice run. Booted the machine to 1511 as usual, everything looked fine. I did the update the same way I had done 1511 on this and perhaps a dozen other machines - copied the ISO to a temp directory on the C: drive, mounted it, and run setup.exe

The first phase of the setup ran to perhaps ~55% (I had looked away for a few minutes). When I looked again, the 1511 desktop was back with a little white alert box saying that the update had failed. No error message or reason.

I checked the update history and there was no error related to this attempt. Ran the Windows Update troubleshooter, which said it had found and repaired a problem with the Windows Update service. Then a message came on the screen telling me that the drive was damaged, click here to reboot and repair.

Despite the chorus of characters dancing in front of me and yelling "***DON'T DO IT!!!***", I "clicked here" and the machine tried to reboot and failed with a message that there is no bootable OS. Tried booting a real 1607 install DVD and it j... Read more

Used the Windows Media Creation tool for the Anniversary Update
All went well, but in the end a simple "Windows 10 installation has failed"
No reason, I just returned to my 10586.545 desktop.

Frankly as I expect such things to happen, I always create a Windows image right before
starting such 'bigger' upgrades.
Restored the image so to make sure there is nothing left there from the failed 1607 upgrade
there that might cause conflicts.

Maybe, one day, MS has a fix, or I may try to do a fresh install, sometime in future.

Right now, 10586.545 is running fine.
Personally I don't have the time (read: interest) to start off spending hours on trying to
find possible solutions / workarounds.

Are Lenovo built-in webcams working with the Win 10 1607 update? My T440s webcam no longer works after the 1607 update to Windows 10. There is plenty in the news about that Windows update breaking USB-attached webcams, but I'm unsure if that is the cause of my problem. It shows up as "Intgrated Camera" in the Device Manager, but the Camera app and Skype both just show a grey screen with a diagonal line though a camera icon in place of the actual camera image. The green light comes on when I try to use the camera - but no image makes it to the software. Thanks.

I have a problem and been attempting to upgrade since December of last year.  Regardless of the method it always stops at 83% and then fails.   It just gives a generic error now in a popup:  Windows 10 Installation has failed.
 See image below:

I have tried updating via the following means multiple times:

Windows Update
Media Creation Tool
mouting the ISO directly on my hard drive
burning the ISO/Windows 1607 to a DVD

I also ran system file check, DISM, windows trouble shooter.  System file check and DISM did manage to fix some issues but not enough to allow a successful update.  Those options can be found here:
I removed everything in the C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder.  In fact, I renamed my C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution to SoftwareDistribution.old  and attempted all the options above again.  I also recently updated my BIOS to A.038 from A0.27 even though the BIOS upgrade mostly applied to the later Graphics card.  Although, it had some security enhances per the details off HP's page.  
In addition, I tried all the options above after disconnecting all peripherals except my keyboard, mouse and monitor.  This included internal hard drives, speakers, printer, UPS and disabling my card reader driver and performing a clean boot with all Window... Read more

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?

my first post here since i start to be pretty desperate. My Win 10 (version 10.0 Build 10240) has downloaded and installed version 1511, 10586 now already five times. Every time it asks to reboot to finish the upgrade there pops up a window in the lower right corner that says "We couldn't finish installing updates - Select this message to learn more". When i select it, I'm taken to the Update section where it says my computer is up to date. And when i check for updates it always finds the update version 1511, 10586 again. And prepares to install, and starts to download (takes for ages), and actually installs. And then again asks to reboot. And fails.

I hope there would be some solution to this, I upgraded from Win7 and this has been working until now. I REALLY hope I don't have to go back to Win7 and lose tons of installed programs. Any help appreciated.

A:Fails to Upgrade to Windows 10 v.1511, 10586 (Nov.update)!

You have been using Windows Update to install 10586.

How about download Media Creation Tool or Tech Bench and do the install ?

Media Creation Tool (MCT)

Tech Bench

Let's use MCT as an example.
Download the Tool and run it > you can either
1. select Upgrade this PC now which will begin installation.
2. select Create Installation media for another PC which will begin downloading the iso file to your computer.
After iso file is downloaded, right click at the iso file > click Mount > click Setup.exe > installation will begin.

In both methods, you can keep you settings, files and apps.
No product key is required.
Activation is automatic.

I have a brand new (purple) Stream Laptop 11 with 32gb hard drive.  It came loaded with Win 10 v.1511.  I have installed a couple of apps and files which take up maybe 2 or 3 gb of space.  I noticed there was an update available - v.1607, but when I attempted to download I am told there is insufficient hard drive space.  I understand v.1607 is really an Win 10 upgrade thus more than an update.  It seems I will never be able to install this upgrade/update.  Does this mean I will never be able to install future updates which could be important security patches, etc.?  Is this a serious issue.  If so I am about to return the product for refund - which would be a shame because I am happy with its performance.

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. Received the following error message upon recovering to previous version:

No idea where to go from here. Clean install is definitely... Read more

OK so I have an Asus Zenbook Prime(UX31A) Ultrabook. It was purchased in 2013 and came with Windows 8 x64 Pro installed. The specs are ? Intel i7, 256gig SSD drive, 4gig memory. I?ve since updated it to 8.1, then ultimately to Windows 10 Pro TH2 (x64).

That said, I had issues getting it to update to Threshold 2 and ultimately had to do a clean install to get TH2 installed. It now seems I have to do the same to get the Anniversary update to install as nothing else seems to work; BTW it?s not even been offered through Windows Update.

Anyway each time I try to install I either get an error code telling me something went wrong, or no error code and a failed install. This is via ISO download and mounting the image, Media Creation tool via USB update, or the get Window 10 Anniversary link.

Bottom line is there have been two major Windows 10 updates (TH2, Anniversary), and in both instances I?m being forced to do a clean install on my laptop. BTW there were no issues updating my desktop. In fact, it was updated through Windows update without issue. Only the laptop seems to require a clean install.

Any thoughts as to why this is happening? And yes, I have enough disk space as this is checked during the update and no warnings are issued.
