    I have a 10 year-old Lenovo laptop with an old nVidia graphics driver. I can't get an updated driver from Lenovo and I am under the impression that getting one directly from nVidia may not work as most manufacturers customize their laptop drivers. Where am I supposed to get an appropriate driver? The graphics card is a NVIDIA Quadro FX 880M.

    Try the nVidia driver

    I offered all the requested documents. Then everyone else chimed in.

    I keep telling everyone not to install 2004 yet, it`s way too soon.

    @spunk, I think maybe your question would get better feedback on a Microsoft site.

    There`s nothing we can do here at TenForums about why MS does what it Does, yes ?

    The only version available on the nVidia site for my card is v340. That is still not late enough.

    The Microsoft Forum, has no one from Microsoft posting there. It has users like you and me with years of experience offering their opinion.

    It might be a workaround, but I would first clone my drive or use a spare disk just in case. I would manually replace the nVidia drivers with Microsoft Basic Display Adapter and then try to upgrade to v2004 again. If the upgrade is successful, I would then reinstall the nVidia driver. There is a chance that the driver won't install though or give you a BSOD. But if using a spare drive, you have nothing to lose.

    I just noticed something weird. On both my main PC (3rd generation Intel Core-i3 3220 3.3GHz, see my specs) and on my Fujitsu Stylistic Q702 tablet/laptop hybrid (3rd generation Intel Core-i5 3437U 2.90GHz) doing all the updates stops at build 19041.388 and Windows Update shows no more updates available. I recently upgraded another computer (Intel Xeon L5506 2.13GHz) at v2004 and doing all the updates finished at build 19041.421 This is weird since my Core-i3 is of 2012, my Core-i5 is of 2013 while the Xeon is of 2009 (see links above)! So it cannot be the Xeon more compatible with Windows 10 than either the i3 or the i5, they should be at least the same in compatibility terms. All computers run Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. What's going on here? Why I am not offered buikd 19041.421 or higher at either the i3 or the i5 computer? Anyone knows?

    Thank you in advance.

    PS: I just thought of something, both the i3 and i5 run Windows 10 Pro EN-US 64-bit, while the Xeon computer runs Windows 10 Pro GR 64-bit. Could the Greek version have more updates (and thus a higher build) than the US version? That is also weird! As far as I know every update comes out in US English first and then to any other language.

    According to UUPDump the latest build in the Retail ring is still 19041.388. Build 19041.421 is in the Insider Slow ring.

    Sorry for the lengthy post, so To Recap, I have two computers. One is 10 years old and the other is about 6 months old now. I had all my programs on the old desktop, and I keep current images of it all the time. I have upgraded the old computer every 6 months since Windows 10 was introduced. When I got my new computer, I restored the latest image from the old desktop to the new desktop. It All worked fine, I had to update my nVidia driver as the card is totally different etc, but everything worked fine. Windows Update updated all other drivers. Then I upgraded both computers from 1903 to 1909, again, all is working great.
    Then 2004 came along, I then tried upgrading them from the downloaded ISO image and right clicking it and Mounting it. Both computers failed on second boot with BSOD Thread_Exception_Not_Handled and restored to 1909. You can read my OP to see what I did and it still failed. Then after a month, my old computer got the message in Windows Update, that my old computer was not ready yet for 2004. My new computer got no message. After another month, Windows Update gave the message that it was Ready now, but when I either let Windows Update download it, or if I downloaded a new ISO, both computers failed with the same message BSOD and restore to 1909.

    Fast forward to last weekend. I decided to upgrade from my standard SATA SSD to an M.2 NVME SSD. I was thinking about a clean install but decided to give it one more try. The new computer now had the Microsoft Nag to Reboot install 2004, but when I did it will fail at the same place and restore back to 1909.
    Now the old computer in Windows Update said, Ready to Install 2004, When I clicked it, I got the Message, Windows cannot Install to this computer because of some issues, and a Fix button appeared. I pressed the fix button, but That didn't do anything, but it did Update .Net Framework 3.5, and 4.2. I clicked the Fix button again and it still would not go. I decided to download a new ISO image from Microsoft for Windows 10 2004. I right clicked on the image on the old computer and mounted and it upgraded to 2004 ! (yeah!) I then went back to Windows Update and it upgraded to 20H2!. The new computer had no other message then to reboot, knowing that would fail. I made a new image of the old computers 20H2 and I restored the image to the new M.2 NVME SSD. It went relatively well, it was a larger drive so I had to Extend C: drive on the new computer once it was done. Updated nVidia etc and all is good now.
    I'd like to thank the people that helped me, but nobody did.

    You can try updating the drivers (create a System Restore point first) of the new computer before your next attempt. Make sure you have updated the chipset drivers, restart and then update the graphics drivers. Do all Windows Updates except v2004. Then I would mount the ISO and copy all contents to a folder such as C:\W10v2004. I would run the Setup from there with right-click Run as Administrator, just in case. I would also disable my antivirus to prevent any interruption during setup. If you only have Windows Defender, it might not be necessary, but do it anyway. Also go to Task Manager, Startup and make sure you disable all startup applications. You can re-enable them after the upgrade.
