    For me, I solved it by unplugging the usb cable from my Dell SX2210 monitor from my computer that supported my mic and built in webcam. Then it worked. But now that I am upgraded, I get the BSOD whenever I plug it back in. Trying to solve here and on the answers.microsoft.com forums...
    Try uninstalling the webcam driver, if any before you plug it. Open Device Manager, select View -> Show hidden devices, expand the Imaging devices and see if there is your webcam there. Disable it so it won't give a BSOD when you connect it. Then download latest webcam driver, connect the device and manually force the driver from Device Manager.

    Thing is, its only a windows 7 driver, and its old (I have the disk). I'll try and report back, Thanks! Its all about the sequence isn't it! This fella explains a lot about drivers and forcing the driver:

    I haven't got any peripherals plugged in but just gave it another go, this time by updating some drivers, repeating all steps above and disabling wifi. Again no good. That was my 8th attempt and I think that I will admit defeat now, my laptop will not update from Windows 10 to erm.. Windows 10
    Very frustrating and such a time waster. I like solving problems like the next guy, but think about it, most people are noobs when it comes to computers. Spending the time like we are is a not gonna happen for them. Unless they google it and get lucky with some good advice and step by step instructions, your gonna be pretty ticked off. These upgrades are not supposed to be difficult. Once a problem occurs, noobs are looking here and there trying to solve their own problems, but ultimately we are at the mercy of Microsoft and vendors. I read earlier that one guys webcam worked fine under one build of Windows 10 and then failed when he upgraded to a later build. This absolutely stinks. How does one keep up? Under Windows 7, my machine worked pretty good. Now Dell and others are not providing update drivers for older equipment, and letting Windows solve it for Windows 10. I guess this is ok, but its a pain in the a$$ when things stop working.

    This was because no matter if you have installed all your drivers and working OK in build 10240, Setup will foolishly try to replace them when upgrading to build 10586 causing problems. Even after a successful upgrade you need to reinstall all your drivers to make sure your computer is working at its best.

    Good advice, but that route is just plain foolish on Microsoft's part too keep changing older drivers that are working fine under windows 7 and are the latest under it.

    I am not sure about Windows 8, but in Windows 7 and earlier the drivers were only changed if there was a newer version available on Windows Update. Otherwise the older drivers (even XP drivers) were used.

    All is well. After the november update, I plugged in the usb cord for the monitor and I got a BSOD. But this time, after a reboot, my pc took its time coming back. The BSOD didn't happen after that. I then tried to see if the monitor webcam would be able to update a driver online. We'll it did and I nearly fainted. I have a usb audio driver, and I don't give a sh*t. It works.

    Hi All,
    I'm also having this same issue on my ASUS T100TA Transformer Book, I had the same issue yesterday while trying to 'upgrade' to the latest home edition via settings. This morning it's once again stuck again @ 40 % with the ' Installing features and drivers' stuck @ 23 % like other user's in here have reported. Just now I ejected my Micro SD Card..hoping something would happen, so far..NOTHING. To me anyway..this issue will give other valued Microsoft user's a VERY negative feeling towards the company. I'm an active Windows Insider, I'm using the most recent version that was offered to me on the 'Fast Ring' on a daily basis..without any issue's. I would have thought by now Microsoft would have got this upgrading process MUCH more refined before offering to upgrade user's computer's !! I'm still waiting to see if my ASUS machine will actually get upgraded properly or not, the good thing is the upgrade 'circle' that shows the upgrade process % appears to still be active..the 40 % is shown as blue, and the 60 % gray area is still dimming like normal. I really wish any other member's in here that are having the same issue would share if / how they got this corrected.

    I think Microsoft dumped this Threshold upgrade us before it was ready for prime time! I have problems with networking and updates on three machines.

    My advice is to forget about doing the "upgrade". Use the Media Creation Tool to download the .iso and do a clean install. Be sure to remove any SD cards, external drives, printers, etc.

    That's what I am about to do.
