    Windows 2004 update from effects of regedit or scripts?


    I'm curious if any registry edits or scripts used in/for 1909, might have caused Windows update to 2004 to abort, or caused the problems for this update. Is this update so poorly written that most users have to "undo" what they choose with their files and antivirus programs?!!

    IMO, no.

    I would suggest reading the list of Known Issues.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...indows-10-2004

    There is also a currently running thread here on Windows 10 2004 issues -

    Known and Resolved issues for Windows 10 May 2020 Update version 2004

    Additionally, there has also been a change in how Microsoft handles attempted forced installs of the ISO on a system that has a block.

    I was able to force install it in early June, and I tested it for a couple days before rolling back to 1909.

    It will now stop the install, tell you your PC is not ready, and gracefully exit the installer.

    So that's a "tell".

    My computer has been ready for the update 4 times and not ready three times... I now see this: Windows 2004 update from effects of regedit or scripts?-update-2004.jpg

    I'm just curious as to "why". I know to wait... because it will revert back/abort and take me back to 1909.

    Unfortunately it doesn't seem possible to get the precise reason related to your PC. It may be that if the rollback logs are created in this case you might be able to infer something:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/...sion-of-window
    Log files created when you upgrade Windows 10 to a newer version

    Whilst you can try running MS's setupdiag.exe (just Google it), this hasn't yet proved very useful.

    Best to wait at least until the first major update has been released, and then do it in a controlled manner:
    - create a disk image before attempting the upgrade
    - then attempt the upgrade

    Your PC seems relatively recent. Check HP's list of PC's compatible with build 2004.

    Then it sounds like you know as much as everyone else does...

    We can't afford any downtime debugging the 2004 release, so it's pretty clear what our path is.

    We're in no hurry to update.
