    Windows Couldn't update the system reserved partition

    I kept getting the error message in the title line at Windows Update to version 1607, and I assumed that it was because there was little space in my SSD. I've now increased capacity and continue to get the error message.

    How do I overcome this? What do I need to look for in my configuration?

    What is your operating system version and build?

    What troubleshooting steps have you made?

    Open administrative command prompt and run: C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\Panther

    Search for these log files and post with onedrive or a cloud link.

    In administrative command prompt run:

    1) diskpart
    2) list disk
    3) select volume 0
    4) list volume
    5) select volume 1
    6) list partition
    7) select volume 2
    8) list partition
    9) select volume 3
    10) list partition
    11) select volume 4
    12) list partition
    13) exit

    Please copy and paste into the post.
