    Weird Flash-Skip when trying to install Anniversary Update


    So this is very frustrating... I'm trying to install the anniversary update, and used the upgrade assistant. But when it restarts, it flashes for just a second the update screen, then shuts off and restarts again and loads without the update...

    Any idea what I did wrong? I even reset the PC and it's still causing issues...

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Update: I got it to work by installing from bootable media, aka I had to remove all of my files from my SSD. Removing the second hard drive didn't fix it...

    Hi, i've the same issue and i also have 2 hard disk with Primary SSD one and secondary HDD.
    So you did a clean installation? What do you mean with "I had to remove all of my files from my SSD": can't you update but only reinstall OS?

    Thanks for help
