    Did you went for clean install (booting via USB drive, deleting old partition and creating new) or update?
    I went with clean install... but it got "stuck" after 2nd restart

    I asked because you said something about restore points etc. (might read wrongly ...)

    Wait a bit and then try manual restart

    Any success? If install still doesn't go trough, check, if you have any USB devices connected and disconnect them. I.e. your wifi dongle and also USB mouse can be the culprit.

    Disconnected everything.
    Tried every repair/restore/reboot method.
    Can't even do a clean install.
    It just gets stuck at a certain point.
    Must be a lot of corrupted files to clean up.
    CHKDSK would be useful at this point.

    Windows 10 is ostensibly dead on this PC
    that's for sure.

    You're mentioning restore / repair etc...

    In Windows install select advanced... delete existing Windows partition and let Windows install in empty space. No chkdsk needed.

    Tried that as well with no success.

    I just gave up & went way back to Windows 7 (!)
    PC runs a LOT faster now.

    Thanks for your guidance with this,

    Good Luck and thanks for posting back. One of hardware components won't allow this upgrade. Strange, since previous Win 10 version worked...

    If you decide to research a bit more. Try to install previous Windows, but clean and then upgrade to the latest Windows 10.

    Here's what some wag posted on woody's site:

    I found the REAL culprit for the Windows 10 Creators Update hangup/freezes.
    Turnís out my momís Dell Inspiron laptop is using an internal Broadcom 440x 10/100 integrated controller device. I disable (turn off) this device in the Dell laptop BIOS setup (aka. the internal NIC device), save changes and now the Windows 10 v1703 Creators Update release works as expected. The Intel 5100 WiFi adapter was not the cause of the problem.

    And the worst part is, Windows 10 (including the v1703 release) has a built-in drivers for the Broadcom 440x Integrated NIC adapter device, which was causing the Windows 10 networking components & services to hang/freeze with this device. The ďlockupsĒ with the Broadcom 440x Ethernet/LAN adapter donít occur with the Anniversary update and older builds of Windows 10; just only happening with the Creators Update.

    In short> Broadcom 440x 100/Integrated Ethernet/LAN Controller Network Adapter + Windows 10 v1703 Creators Update = CATASTROPHE!



    This BIOS fix didn't work on ny desktop, but it was worth a try.

    Hopefully they'll have a patch for this soon.
