    Failed to Install 1903


    I originally upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 when Microsoft offered the free upgrades and have never had any Windows Update issues until now... running 64 bit.
    Timeline:
    1. Using Windows Update I tried updating to 1903 a couple of days ago and it failed to install showing 0xc19001e1. Avast & Malwarebytes were disabled. I did forget to unplug my USB printer and scanner.

    2. I ran CHKDSK and it found and fixed errors.

    3. I ran Windows Update again and it also failed showing 0xc1900101 .

    4. Ran DISM tool and showed no corruption.

    5. Ran Windows Troubleshooter.

    6. I since have downloaded the Media Creation Tool but haven't tried it yet. Once I click on it to start the installation am I reinstalling Windows or updating to 1903... I've never used this tool before?

    How did you try to update, by WU or by executing Setup.exe on the USB flash disk created with Media Creation Tool?

    If you don't have the Win 10 installation iso or a USB Win 10 installation disk, use the Media Creation Tool to download the iso file to your computer, then mount the iso and run Setup.exe.

    What you can do with the MS media creation tool is described here:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/soft...load/windows10

    Click the + to expand a section.
    ------------------------------------------
    Notice your troubleshooter reported a problem: that's usually fixed thus:
    Reset Windows Update in Windows 10

    -------------------------------------------
    I suggest you use the MS media creation tool to download an iso file.
    Make sure you have at least 30Gb free on C:
    Rt click on the iso file
    Click Mount (note Mount won't be available if you have associated iso files with another program)
    Open the new drive letter with file explorer.
    Find and double click setup.exe

    - this starts the upgrade.

    To shorten, simplify the upgrade choose not to accept updates.

    Note any error message exactly.

    Ok what I did was use the MS media creation tool like you guys suggested and used it to download an iso file. I ran the iso exe so it’s in the process of updating so we shall see if it successfully installs.

    I’ll update when I know more... thanks!

    Ok I let it update during the night and got up just to see if everything went ok and guess not... got this error screen.

    Following this using your error number -> this which may help you with the next steps:

    This suggests a driver compatibility problem

    You may learn more from the log files mentioned in the above.

    Thanks but is this starting to get over my head some when you start mentioning log files. I am able to follow the steps to perform a clean boot into Windows so I will try that later today.

    log files are just text files created during some sequence or other to record what's going on - a record.

    The locations are given, problem is making some sort of sense of them.

    To post them, find them, zip them (compress) and upload them as an attachment (via button Go Advanced, bottom left)

    I tried for the 3rd time to update and this time no error screen once my desktop loaded but going to All Settings>Update & Security>View Update History shows it failed again with 0x80240034 error. I did a Clean Boot and I was able to disable everything in Task Manager>Startup but Avast it would not allow me... otherwise all other items were. I had already disabled all the Avast Shield in the program itself.

    Guess I still don't understand locating the log files I'm not seeing the same things in 'Rollback' when I follow the file path?

    • The minidump file: $Windows.~bt\Sources\Rollback\setupmem.dmp,
    • Event logs: $Windows.~bt\Sources\Rollback*.evtx
    • The device install log: $Windows.~bt\Sources\Rollback\setupapi\setupapi.dev.log


    Is there anything else for me to try?
