    Trouble trying to install Windows 10 Anniversary Update, version 1607

    I have tried multiple times times to install the Windows 10 Pro, Anniversary Update to my desktop computer, a Dell Inspiron 560. Every time, the result has been a computer that will not start-up, ie. Windows does not appear to load/run. I have tried the WURepair tool and tried to repair the System Registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>Microsoft>Windows NT>ProfileList, all to no avail. I have had to restore my system with an previous Image to get it operational again. Has anybody else had this problem and been able to come up with an answer?

    Hello JRAllen72653 Welcome to the Ten Forums!

    One advice I can provide here would be to try a different method for either update by upgrade or planned clean install which doesn't seem to be what you have been looking for. When the Redstone 1 update didn't even arrive here for 3 separate desktops as well as a recently new laptop where 10 came already on not seeing the update still lead to fail of the MC Tool to see the immediate online upgrade take place or create the usb media needed.

    Twin solutions were then sought! The first in order to see all machines updated was to download the "windows.iso" by way of the MC Tool which equals both the 32bit and 64bit flavors for both the Home and Pro editions. We call that a "4 in 1" type of download that covers everyone.

    The second item on the agenda did opt to use a 3rd party program not the Windows option to mount the iso downloaded onto each machine or run from a flash drive where the setup.exe main executable would be manually started to watch each upgrade install take place. Once all systems were set which included one desktop only lately being upgraded from 7 Home Premium to 10 Home and then still waiting for the update to go on before return to owner was to visit a MS download iso type page to grab both the 32bit and 64bit smaller Dual Edition iso downloads to keep onhand.

    For a final fix to all older already made up flash drives for the Threshold 2 update last November as well as for Windows Insider Preview builds were wiped almost but not all by overwrite of the older files and folders with the newer by extraction from the RS1 update's own iso file to update the usb media.

    Now after download of the RS1 that might have been the first move in order to boot live from usb media for either upgrade or clean install depending on preference. The iso mounting however did work out here as another alternative option to the WU.

    Trouble trying to install Windows 10 Anniversary Update, version 1607

    I have been able to get the media for the RS1 update, it's just that after installing it, my Dell i560 machine will not run.

    The wonders of "OEM" equipment! Here I ended up trashing the entire drive on an older HP laptop when at first the upgrade to 10 came out FOOBAR! and later finding you couldn't resize the primary down just a little to see a second small backup partition created. NUKE ENTIRE DRIVE create brand new primary and secondary after already replacing failed upgrade with clean install 32bit for a nice fresh 64bit instead was how that was resolved!

    Fortunately the 10 laptop mentioned being the replacement for the other that suddenly went DOA in December bought new with 10 in January only needed to see the iso downloaded mounted. For you on the other hand the much more drastic NUKE IT ALL almost could be the advice in order to wipe all the OEM Crapola off entirely which would then allow you to go anywhere! You might even decided the original drive was either too cramped or not fast enough as some would say get an SSD.

    By the description you have provided so far however it sounds too much like an OEM locked you out deal where the factory primary and Proprietary nonsense is gumming up the works for you. First thing now before proceeding would be backing up everything you want from the drive regardless of which route you take. You could also see a full image made as well as saving all of the important personal files and then make the decision whether or not the OEM has to go! This unfortunately seems to be one option that you may have to choose in order to see the Redstone 1 go on without fuss provided the media you saw made up wasn't corrupted or impartial in some way leading to a bad install?

    At times I ran into the need to have multiple flash drives made up when some iso simply didn't write well to usb! Changing or reinstalling the iso writing program used would end up being what solved it. Or a particular flash drive wouldn't be so write to friendly and simply had to be replaced.
