    Unable to upgrade to latest Win 10 build from existing 1607 build.


    Can anyone give me any clues as to why the update to the latest Windows 10 build fails. My PC goes through the update route, downloads to image, prepares the image, installs the image to 100%, then fails and gives the message "Restoring your previous version of Windows". (no actual error code message numbers are shown anywhere).
    Once back to the original 1607 build, the process starts all over again, then back to the same result.
    I'm using a SSD for the op system, with 43Gb spare space.
    I've tried Ccleaner to get rid of unnecessary rubbish, but still the same result.

    Hi, have you had Windows update disabled for some time or have you deferred upgrading?

    Please post a screenshot of your Update History.
    To post a screenshot please use the icon above your post to the left of the video icon. Thanks.

    Please see
    Upgrade to Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials
    pink and Here's How sections for some helpful basic ideas on preparing your PC.

    Disconnect any unnecessary peripherals, esp. wireless.

    Please perform the following routine maintenance tasks:
    From an elevated command prompt run
    chkdsk c: /scan

    If ok, please run
    SFC /SCANNOW

    Post the results of these. If these fail, do not attempt to upgrade, but do do the other things following.

    Please post a screenshot of your partitions using Minitool Partition wizard (free) (not Disk Management). Expand columns as necessary so all text is shown.

    Uninstall any programs modifying your GUI that might conflict.
    You could try upgrading having done a clean boot.

    Before attempting to upgrade, I strongly recommend you create or update a disk image. We urge people to use disk imaging routinely as it gives people a 2nd chance where PCs are unbootable, uncorrectable- even if their disk fails or is infected with ransomware. E.g. Macrium Reflect (free). Things can go wrong.

    I recommend you download a Win 10 iso and attempt a manual upgrade using that without downloading updates.
    This saves you repeat downloads if you need to reattempt, and s a bootable disk gives you a tool with some repair options.
    (Search for 'media creation tool' and/or see relevant tutorials in the Tutorial section on creating a bootable disk if you need to).

    Press the Windows key and the R, type winver to see what you have. Using the MCT/Media Creation Tool got me Version 1709 Build 16299.15 a couple of weeks ago, that is 2 Upgrades over Version 1607. Version 1709 is now up to Build 16299.194 for 64-bit version of Win10.

    One thing I have done in Settings, Update and Security is to click the Learn More link [right side further down] and check the list for the latest build for the installed version then download it for Offline installing.

    Not sure I'm attaching the requested files correctly....there should be the updates screenshots, partitions view, SFC and chkdsk, and log file dump.
    The updates window scrolls a long way, so I've just included the most recent, and the older at the point the 1703 build update fails, since then the 1703 has not retried.
    And no, I haven't ever switched off/deferred any updates knowingly.

    The logs could not be scanned or read.
    Please use English as the default language and re-post the zip

    There are different versions of the log collector.
    Make sure that you use this version for the post:

    Hmm, don't understand, I can open the zip and read the text log files, all in plain English. I'm reattaching the log dump again here.

    Here attached is the other Log collector result you've asked for. I'm assuming the link you gave was to get the utility, and not the place to post the result, so it's just here in this thread. Let me know if you want me to post in the BSOD forum.

    p.s. I'm not using a foreign language, only English.

    Here's the Dropbox link to the screenshots you've requested:
    Dropbox - Diags2.zip
    I've been able to get free space on C: up to 36.3Gb, but struggling to find what else to delete after that.
    I can run the HD Sentinel but it will take some time so I'm posting this reply in the mean time.
    (Thanks for your help, by the way, much appreciated)
