    Windows update might get confused since you have disk 0 which is an MBR disk set as "Active". Open Admin command:
    diskpart
    select disk 0
    select par 1
    inactive
    exit

    Except for the boot disk. No data disk should be set "Active"

    going to give it a try again...

    1. Delete contents of : %temp% and Software Distribution\Downloads
    2. Disable AV and Windows Firewall
    3. run setup exe from USB (created by Media Creation Tool)

    and see what happens.

    getting back soonest

    Thanks to all so far.

    Sorry, still the same error.
    on top of the above 1. and 2. I also detached USB drives.
    Any files from the below that might cast some light on this??

    In #2 I suggested you see this:
    1709 Fails to install and how to remove multiple recovery partitions?-1.jpg
    - which indicates helpful log files, e.g. setuperr.log, setupact.log

    from this:
    Upgrade to Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials

    And Minitool Partition Wizard -not Disk Management- will show all partitions, as I've mentioned.

    Ive nearly always found system service exception BSOD's to be in some way caused by anti virus programs. Best to remove this and then try again as a test :)

    Thank you all - and sorry to keep you waiting.
    I gave it a few other tries. Just now I tried after a clean boot
    disabling all start up items
    disabling all non-windows services
    load system services and use original boot configuration tagged

    problem still occurs.

    I -assume- that this way conflicting drivers are not loaded(?)

    the setuperr.log shows

    Anyway, I've probably spent more time on trying (including all the previous attempts) that a fresh install would have been quicker.
    I'll forget about upgrading.
    Will do a fresh install one day.

    Want to really thank you all for your help
    (and patience..)

    FWIW... only and to more or less complete the story:
    today I also tried with
    1. DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth, followed by chkdsk - reboot
    still the same issue

    2. clean boot - disabling 'load startup items', services, and disabling all items at the startup tab
    still the same issue

    almost certain there is no other way then to just go ahead and do a scratch install.

    Well anyway ..
    (no, there is no question here, just wanted to add the above, nothing more)

    Sometimes an in-place upgrade repair install can help (which keeps all programs and data). But you need an iso of boot disk for your current build- which you may already have, or is available if you need it.

    But it won't if the problem (and we still lack specific evidence) is related to some installed program e.g. security software.

    Could AV software still interfere then when it is disabled/not loaded?

    These were the only files loaded, all other were 'SYSTEM', svhost local service and network service.

    Also see attached txt files.
    a. they are .log files
    b. the name of the file show in which folder they were residing

    I -thought- it had something to do with Windows Kits\10 (WinPE) as that folder did not exist.
    Probably renamed by Macrium Reflect

    but a re-install of Windows ADK for Windows 10, version 1703 didn't solve the problem.
    (after the install, again a clean boot)

    also the "Windows10UpgraderApp.exe" , pretty much looking the same as "Windows10Upgrade9252.exe" didn't help.

    I wonder whether I could delete the 'recovery' partitions when running a partition manager from USB
