    Fall Creators Update fails to install

    Attempted from 16299.15 ISO.
    Suspect something to do with AMD 17.7.2 driver (latest for this system) since it aborts at 33%.

    Edit: Today I did a clean install of Windows 10 Pro 16299.15 on a unused partition. It installed with any issues and Windows 10 installed AMD driver 16.6. I installed CU to get to 16299.19. I then downloaded from AMD the latest driver for this system 17.7.2. While installing it crashed Windows 10. There were no error messages. Just a blank black screen. After restart I found that the AMD driver was in an uncompleted state. I tried to roll back to the default driver that Windows 10 installed during the clean install. I was never able to completely recover from the crash. Although Device Manager shows the original 16.6 driver installed and working, AMD Settings will not open claiming there is not a valid AMD driver installed. Over all this was a bad idea.

    I suppose now it is just waiting game to see if HP, AMD or MS fixes this driver issue.

    Edit: AMD has released beta drivers for FCU. See post #8. The beta is compatible with my system and FCU.

    The official explanation...

    Microsoft said:
    0xC1900101 - 0x30018
    A device driver has stopped responding to setup.exe during the upgrade process.

    Disconnect all peripheral devices that are connected to the system, except for the mouse, keyboard and display.
    Contact your hardware vendor to obtain updated device drivers.
    Ensure that "Download and install updates (recommended)" is accepted at the start of the upgrade process.

    Also, your My Computers show you are on the RTM Version 1703 Build 15063.674 while the Version 1709 Build 16299.15 is for the IP/Insider Preview [test] version which has not yet been released to RTM. Version 1709 is now at Build 17017.

    There's a link doing the rounds on these boards to a Media Creation Tool for 16299.15, downloadable direct from Microsoft. This appears to be a leak of a link that points to the MCT that will be officially released on 17th. I've used this MCT to make what appears to be media for the RTM version of 1709. It certainly installs as if it is, and I'm no Insider.

    It would seem that 16299.15 is fixed as the RTM release now, and that (as with 1703) any last minute changes will be done with a cumulative update issued simultaneously with the launch. Insiders on 16299.15 are now getting cumulative updates, currently it's build 16299.19.

    I uninstalled AMD driver 17.7.2 and then installed 16.9.2 and I was then able to complete the install. After CU now at version Windows 10 16299.19 but with an older graphics driver. I will just have to live with that for now. Hopefully HP,AMD and/or MS will fix this issue.

    Windows 10 v1607 Pro 64 bit

    Hello Bree, (Long-time-no-see),

    I am having problems installing Fall Creators Update (Windows 10 v1709). It fails to install and downloads repeatedly. That is on a Windows 10 Pro 32 bit Dell Optiplex GX620 desktop. My other two Windows 10 Pro 64 bit PCs (Dell Optiplex 760 and 755) took the installation OK, although one (Dell 755) lost its Start Menu item (Administrative Tools). I managed to download the Administrative Tools components and load them into Control Panel using a TenForums Tutorial, although I couldn't access them from the Start Menu - the folder goes missing. I resolved the main issue with a System Image taken two days before.

    The Windows 10 Pro 32 bit Dell Optiplex GX620 with the issue of installation failures was run with the Windows Update Troubleshooter and showed a series of error codes and eventually suggested there was a possibility of: "Potential Windows Update Database error detected". It has just had a clean install of Windows 10 from the MCT but even in its very basic state with no additional work or third-party software added since it first became active; it still fails to install v1709. It doesn't get to "Hi" "Glad you are there". It asks for a Restart but doesn't activate. It is in a loop. It suggested a problem with the download software release and not the PC.

    It's going to be another AppxStaging hair-pulling exercise.

    My stable system using Creators is now waking randomly again, from hibernation, with no powercfg insights as to the cause.

    I am into overnight 12 GB downloads and I am considering using Shut down now .... any thoughts?

    For the 32-bit system with the issue of installation failures, use the MCT to make an ISO. Mount the ISO and run Setup to upgrade it to 1709. This may work where using the Upgrade Assistant fails. If it too fails, you will see a more comprehensive error code than from the upgrade assistant. This document lists the codes you might see, their causes and ways to mitigate them.
    If the upgrade process is not successful, Windows Setup will return two codes...
    ...For example, a result code of 0xC1900101 with an extend code of 0x4000D will be returned as: 0xC1900101 - 0x4000D
