    BSOD during install of Windows 10 Anniversary Update

    I'm having trouble installing the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

    The installation of the update seems to get to about 70% complete, then I get a BSOD saying "kernel security check failure".

    Then the update system automatically rolls back my Windows installation to the pre-Anniversary Update version.

    Not sure which driver is causing the problem. Hopefully, the attached logs will help to narrow down the problem.

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi schmosef,

    Welcome to the 10forums :)

    Please remove / disable items from the startup in taskmanager
    These programs could interfere with the boot process giving you trouble and increase the boot time.

    Daemon tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known cause for BSOD's.
    Please remove Daemon Tools and run the SPTD pass through remover.

    1. Uninstall Daemon Tools
    2. Download the SPTD standalone installer and follow these steps:
      • Double click the executable to open it
      • Click on the button shown below

    If the button is grayed out, like in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system, and you can close the window.

    Please uninstall all ASUS software, it is known for causing BSODs.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    I've uninstalled Daemon Tools and all the Asus software. And disabled everything from the Startup tab in Task Manager.

    I also updated my Intel chipset drivers and Realtek audio drivers. I think all my other drivers are up to date.

    I tried installing the update again, this time via a USB stick created with the Media Creation Tool.

    It got to 71%, hung there for a long time with a lot of hard disk activity, then rebooted and started reverting changes.

    When I logged back into my reverted Windows I got a message saying that there was an error during the "first boot phase" with the "data migration" step.

    I think I'll stop trying to install the update for a month or two to give Microsoft a chance to work out the glitches.
