    Win 10 1809 to 1903 Failure And Odd Issue Found

    So for a couple days I have been trying to update to 1903 including removing every device but the mouse and keyboard and trying but I always get a failure around 73%. I tried the troublershooter, the media creation tool and so forth

    Today trying with the windows 10 iso route(on a local drive) the updater says that "We are having trouble determining you can run windows 10 on this pc"

    I started looking around and noticed that in msconfig there is no boot options in the boot tab. This is an EFI so I am not sure if that is normal. Which in the past had stopped me from easily getting into safeboot as well since no option can be checked in that tab if no drive is shown as boot.

    However when I was backing up today I remembered my backup software also had a preos(easus) so I turned it on. However it never turns on and this makes me think something is going on with how it is seeing the partitions so I have added a pic of that as well

    i have never had issues booting and reboot daily so at least I know its working.

    Sort of at a loss here. Would like to update this pc but can't seem to figure what at all is going on.

    No listing under MSConfig Boot tab / not sure what to do

    Similar there.
    You are missing an EFI partition too. Here's mine (1903) - note the 99Mb EFI partition:

    - noting the Recovery partition is NTFS - not sure where the idea in that thread about FAT32 comes from.

    Here are all the partitions - Disk Management omits the 16Mb one:

    In the thread I quoted- not the most straightforward- it seems one basic step taken was to
    a. Image 'C: '
    b. Clean install Windows
    c. Replace the new Windows partition by restoring it from the image created
    d. (Note when rebooting, this may sort itself out via automated repair, or need Startup repair to be run)

    If you search for
    msconfig boot empty
    msconfig boot empty "Windows 10"
    you will find numerous references which may help.

    Weird I did at one time have an EFI partition. Odd. Ok took the steps recreated and it shows up and I can now see it in msconfig. Will try updating tonight then and if successful will close this.
