    These are trial and error steps.
    The group of steps are to identify:
    windows drive letter in Windows RE (it can change with each reboot)
    packages that were installed
    disks, volumes, partitions, etc.

    This was added later
    d) type: DISM /image:X:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions
    e) reboot



    Code:
    /RevertPendingActions	
    If you experience a boot failure, you can use the /RevertPendingActions option to try to 
    recover the system. 
    The operation reverts all pending actions from the previous servicing operations because 
    these actions might be the cause of the boot failure. 
    The /RevertPendingActions option is not supported on a running operating system or a 
    Windows PE or Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) image. 
    Important:   You should use the /RevertPendingActions option only in a system-recovery 
    scenario on a Windows image that did not boot.

    Unfortunately I can't do anything in Win10 because I can't get back in. I get the logo screen ... it shows quickly that some update is 100%. Then it goes to the next spinning dots screen where nothing happens other than spinning dots. Though it looks like there is a lot of disk i/o going on based on the disk i/o light on my pc.

    Is there any logging or verbose mode to see what it's actually doing or getting hung up on?

    It was working fine until I ran System Update and rebooted. I thought I was in the home stretch of this arduous process ...
    Unfortunately the latest Windows update is causing issues for some

    I wonder if that's what just happened to you.

    I'm not sure if that's the update it choked on.

    Okay, thanks. To be sure, I have no concerns of other drives be touched other than the Win10 drive, correct?

    For DISM /image:X:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions
    replace X with the partition drive letter displayed in this result:
    bcdedit | find "osdevice"

    None of the commands should impact other disk drives.

    Okay. Got it. I will be trying to work on this tonight. Roughly how long should this process take?

    Thanks. One other point of clarification - are all steps being done while booted from USB?

    Yes boot to the Windows 10 iso flash drive > Windows Recovery Environment (RE)
    List of PC brands with their corresponding hot-keys
    If revert works then you set.
    The rollback if possible is the next trial and error step.
    Make sure that you save the diagnostic results from the prior post.

    From these original instructions - I booted from USB. Went to the Advanced Options.

    I selected - Startup Repair. It reported >> Startup Repair couldn't repair your PC. >> Question - How does Startup Repair know which of the many drives/partitions to try to repair? It did not ask me to indicate which drive.

    I then selected System Restore. It provides a popup "To use System Restore, you must specify which Windows installation to restore. Restart this computer, select an operating system, and then select System Restore."

    I am unclear how to proceed. When I restart, what am I booting to in order to try to run System Restore??? And how do I specify which Windows installation?

    Well, you can scratch those last questions. When I rebooted I was able to get back into Win10 with no problem.

    I checked System Restore and I see there is now one restore point.

    It lists one event as follows:

    3/8/21 - 10:36:54 (a couple minutes ago) Windows Module Installer - Install

    Questions -

    1. What should be my next steps at this point in order to know everything is good from here without things being problematic? I had planned to go to System Update and install the approximate 30 driver updates, hoping that will improve stability

    2. Every time I boot, it is calling for *all* of the disks to be checked. How do I disable this? I've run several manually and they are fine. I will run the rest manually. I'm not sure why this is being triggered.

    Thanks.

    Mike

    There is definitely some sort of instability.

    Right click on the desktop resulted in spinning wheel. And all desktop icons are now just plain white rectangles. Right click on the desktop now doesn't do anything.
