Windows 10: Upgrade to build 10074 fails

    I've installed 10074 on 5 machines (all Dell laptops or Dell desktops, all different models). Three were clean installs and two were upgrades from Windows 7. All went through without a hitch. Immediate family members like Windows 10 and can't wait for the final release. I used a 10074 iso burned to a DVD for all of the installs. All of the installs were finished in about 2 hours.

    I've installed Win10 on 2 machines, both with build 10041, with clean builds no problems until upgrading.

    My custom desktop clean installed without issue and has subsequently updated itself to 10076 again without issue.

    My laptop however, would not upgrade in the first instance from Win 7 - resulting in a completely corrupt build, no way to roll back etc. I then clean installed that machine, which worked fine, but after a couple of days it too tried to upgrade itself to 10076, which again completely corrupted the build and I had to start from scratch. (Which I've done 3 times now)

    Clean installed the laptop with a fresh download of 10076 and it's working much better. Laptop is a Toshiba Portege R830

    Updating 10041 to 10074 resulted in error 1900407.
    Back to 10041 and downloaded 10074 iso
    Trying a clean install of build 10074 resulted in "No operating system" . Back to 10041, it first worked fine. And really was running 10074. After all updates I had again "missing operating system" . So I am back at build 10041.
    Added the list of updates. Anyone same experience? My laptop Asus X771 series.

    henk41948,

    It might be better if you start a thread of your own to avoid any confusion on which member people are helping.

    There's a lot of information missing from your post that would help.
    1) How is Win10 installed?
    a) as the primary OS
    b) as a dual boot OS
    c) in a Virtual Machine

    2) Install media?
    a) Flash drive
    b) DVD

    3) Firmware?
    a) BIOS
    b) UEFI

    4) Disk initialized?
    1) MBR
    2) GPT

    There have been other members who had bad media, downloading a fresh copy and using that helped.

    There were some issues with disks (I don't think this is the issue on your machine - those wouldn't boot afterwards on any OS)
    I had an issue on 10.049 where the System Reserve partition was modified - I think the message was the same as the one you're getting, I'm not sure though.

    I cleaned up some of the extraneous language items and I ran EasyBCD to clean up part of the issue, but there is still severe fragmentation on that partition.

    read first before you take action, ask any questions.
    If Win10 is your primary OS and you do NOT dual boot, then you might want to reuse the disk space allocated.
    Make the space unallocated (no partition, no filesystem (no fomat).
    Download a fresh ISO
    Burn to DVD
    Reset Firmware to defaults
    Install with the custom install option
    Install to the unallocated space.

    Windows will handle everything else.
