    Has nothing to do with installing Windows 10 2004 on a blocked system.

    Still waiting on your test results.

    My test results were uploaded in post #12.
    Of course a Clean Install would solve the problem, If I wanted to do that, I wouldn't have posted here. I have a lot of software that takes days to reinstall, so that is a last resort. Both computers are working fine, and have been working fine for the last several months. If the computer was not working I would do a Clean Install. I just can't upgrade to 2004.

    Thank you all for your replies. I bet that if I replace my hard disk with a spare and attempt a clean installation (format) of v2004, it will install without any issues. I see no reason why not. Microsoft simply blocks the update at "old" systems to force us either upgrade or buy a new computer. If I had a typical office PC I would backup and format. But mine has too many applications to start from start! I would need at least one week to reinstall and configure all of them! No thanks! I rather stay with v1909 for the moment. Anyone else that doesn't mind the trouble to do a clean installation, do try it. You have nothing to lose!

    Without rehashing all the details and trying to find all of @Bree's posts, I'll quickly say that it seems to be just the opposite of what you say. MS seems to be a lot friendlier with the older systems on this 2004 build. Newer systems are by far getting blocked more often than older.

    As @f14tomcat says, that's not been my experience. My last to be offered 2004 was my newest, and the only one that's actually been tested by its OEM for 2004.

    I was offered v2004, and it failed. I restored from a day old backup and was offered it again. It failed again.
    I have new hardware, but I believe that it failed because of MBR disks and everything concerning Win 10 is all on ONE partition.

    I have upgraded 3 laptops and I have done Clean Installs on 2 laptops to 2004. The 2 desktops this thread refers to share the same image. The 2004 ISO image is used on all computers, so I know it works. The newest computer is less then 6 months old. The latest nVidia driver is on each desktop. There are no yellow marks in the Device Manager and there are no other drivers available from the Gigabyte web site. Both desktop computers were running 1903 late last year, and were upgraded to 1909 in January. Both computers continue to work flawlessly. They both keep updated with the latest Windows updates. When the upgrade to 2004 fails, it rolls back the image to 1909. Which still works flawlessly.

    Hi,
    MBR is good for three partitions so I only see two there so I don't think that is why unless you have another recovery partition not in view on the end of disk 0.
