    There were a lot of reported failures:

    scannow
    restorehealth
    multiple upgrades including same version

    It seems like reset save files or clean install may be the viable options.

    Reset Windows 10
    Clean Install Windows 10


    What had happened with the third recovery partition (8.46 GB)?

    I'm unsure what you are asking in regards to the third recovery partition? Are you thinking it should have a drive letter or is there something in the logs about it?

    When there are windows upgrades Windows can install extra recovery partitions.
    Disk management displayed 3 recovery partitions.
    The size of one of them is unusually large.
    A rare thread has a custom made recovery partition.

    I mounted the volume with diskpart, its volume name is "PBR Image" which is a valid Dell recovery partition. Both the other ones are volume name WINRETOOLS and ESP. Here are the results of the above instructions

    For Ccleaner uncheck:
    a) Memory dumps
    b) Windows log files

    A lot of time can be spent troubleshooting.
    For example these are additional steps:
    Run SFC Command in Windows 10
    Use DISM to Repair Windows 10 Image

    The time spent reinstalling drivers and applications after a reset save files equivalent is likely to be more efficient and effective.

    I'm not following you, I understand why to uncheck Memory dumps and log files in CCleaner but why mention SFC and DISM when they are failing for me?

    All in place upgrade repairs failed.
    Running commands with an iso is another method to try to troubleshoot operating system or component store corruption.
    There may be multiple factors that can interfere with an upgrade.
    It's another method to troubleshoot besides in place upgrade repairs which resulted in a rollbacks.

    It seems the best options are clean install, reset save files, or reset save files equivalent.

    Or we could just use diskpart to mount the EFI partition from recovery mode, assign a drive letter, go to EFI\Microsoft\boot\ and ren BCD BCD.old then bootrec /rebuildbcd, remove letter="x", exit, reboot and then VOILA upgrade to 1903... This worked beautifully btw. Thanks to Bree for that insight since I have a really hard time sorting through logs. Bree wins the internet!

    That's great news.
    It's surprising that there were not boot problems prior to reading the entries in the Panther logs.
    You are welcome.
    Please upload a new V2 and post a new disk management.
