Windows 10: How to get rights to copy to Root of C:

  1.    11 Mar 2018 #11

    Before doing anything else, please could you explain why you are trying to use Dism. It is not a run-of-the-mill tool but it is in fact a very advanced tool.
    I have been trying for days to fix an error (Oxc1900200) that results from the Windows 10 Pro update from 1703 to 1709.

    Amongst the things I have tried as per my internet search on that error is:

    1. Ran anti-virus to make sure that was not causing the problem.
    2. Made sure no third-party security software is running ( only Windows Defender).
    3. Rand CHKDSK /R
    4. Downloaded file SSU(kb4058704) for 64 bit.
    5. Performed a clean boot.
    6. Checked Device Manager...no exclamation points found that indicated a problem.
    7. Ran sfc /scannow No problems were found.
    8. Ran (as was suggested as a fix), DISM.exe /online /cleanup-image /Restorehealth which generated error: 0x800f081f.
    9. The error suggests that the program cannot find the correct file to repair the Windows problem and suggested that I need to copy the file install.wim to the root of C: so that the DISM program can find it. Which brought me here.

    That is why I am using DISM...because nothing else I have tried per various suggestions has worked.

    The update program keeps downloading time and time again and ends with the same error.

    @dahermit, that error code means:
    0xC1900200 Setup.exe has detected that the machine does not meet the minimum system requirements.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/windows/d...upgrade-errors

    None of the fixes you have been told to use can be any help with this, certainly not DISM.

    As you are running 1703, most system requirements are already proven to be met. The most likely requirement that may not be met is available space, not just on C: but the other system partitions too.

    I am surprised that so far no one has suggested to you one of the most common causes of the 0xc1900200 update error...

    It has been confirmed that the recovery partition is of insufficient size for the windows 1607 to 1703 upgrade.
    win 10 version 1607 to 1703 upgrade failure code 0xc1900200

    Minitools partition wizard, or similar, can help there. How large is your recovery partition? For comfort it should be at least 600MB, 500MB at minimum. Post a screenshot of Disk Management and we can help confirm the diagnosis.

    I'm not expert on this but if all else fails back up drivers to external media. Ideally also clone your HD. Then consider attempting the following:

    Reset Windows Update components: Script Reset Windows Update Agent

    Disconnect from internet and stop windows update service. If it won't stop - reboot (still with no internet) then stop it.

    Run the script - right-click and run as administrator. Choose option 11. Reboot when finished. (Still with no internet)

    Run it again and choose option 2. Reboot when finished.

    Run advanced disk cleanup to include windows update cleanup:

    In admin Powershell:

    Cmd.exe /c Cleanmgr /sageset:65535 & Cleanmgr /sagerun:65535
    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	Administrator_ Windows PowerShell.jpg 
Views:	3 
Size:	22.8 KB 
ID:	180541

    Or in Elevated Command Prompt:

    cd C:\windows\system32

    %SystemRoot%\System32\Cmd.exe /c Cleanmgr /sageset:65535 & Cleanmgr /sagerun:65535

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	Administrator_ C__WINDOWS_system32_cmd.exe.jpg 
Views:	3 
Size:	23.3 KB 
ID:	180544

    %SystemRoot%\System32\Cmd.exe /c Cleanmgr /sageset:65535 & Cleanmgr /sagerun:65535

    Extended disk cleanup will open. Choose cleanup options to include windows update cleanup.

    Reboot when finished. Turn off antivirus and other security software.

    Download Microsoft’s Media Creation Tool

    After download right-click the tool’s MediaCreationTool.exe file and run as administrator. Tick Create installation media for another PC then Next. I know you want to upgrade the same PC but to create installation media you need to use this option.

    When asked if you want to create a USB flash drive (you need one with 4GB or more free space) or an ISO file. Choose the USB option and click Next.

    Wait for Windows 10 to download. When finished, navigate to the USB drive and double-click setup.exe to begin the Windows 10 upgrade process. Follow all the on-screen prompts until you see a message saying Installing Windows 10.

    When your computer restarts remove the USB drive (during shutdown period) then follow the prompts to complete the installation.

    Maybe it won't throw up the same error.

    RE: Backup drivers before upgrade. I use this tool to make three backup sets of drivers to external media.

    Double Driver Download


    1. All drivers
    2. Non Microsoft drivers
    3. All drivers

    EDIT: Try the partition resize method first.

    dahermit,

    I imagine you are now considering the investigation that Bree has suggested. Unless that resolves all your problems please would you consider these points -

    1 In your question, you referred to your 'setup disk'. Is this an older installation disk or a new-ish one specifically made to contain Ver 1709?
    2 In your explanation of the original problem, you mentioned, "4 Downloaded file SSU(kb4058704) for 64 bit". I cannot find any references to KB4058704.
    3 In your explanation of the original problem, you mentioned, "an error ... that results from the Windows 10 Pro update from 1703 to 1709". Did the update to Ver 1709 complete, albeit with these errors, or are you still on Ver 1703? You can find out by opening a Command prompt window or PowerShell window and entering winver - the dialog box that appears tells you the current version.

    That doesn't make sense, that's far too large to have been created by installing Windows. That size is consistent with an OEM factory reset recovery partition.

    How many recovery partitions does disk management say you have? That may not be the one that Windows is actually using as the active recovery partition.

    Please read this tutorial and post a screenshot as described...

    EDIT: your emachines ET1331G-03w was supplied with Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. That 16GB recovery partition will almost certainly contain the Windows 7 factory reset image. Windows 10 will likely be using another partition.
    Since your eMachine was preinstalled with Windows 7 you should have a recovery partition to be able to reinstall your OS.

    Thanks for finding that, but unfortunately the forum posting software seems to have broken your link at the bit you put in bold. Here's one that works.
