    Anak,

    Thanks for the reply.

    Actually the drive setup is just the opposite. The OS is the C: drive and is an SSD. The D: & E: drives are Western Digital HDDs. That's a pretty normal config. I can try your idea of powering down the D: and E: drives and trying it again.

    Does anyone know where... in what log file... I can find what device could not be configured.

    You're welcome Brian.

    I knew it it wouldn't take too long for the cavalry to show up, thanks guys!

    It must of been the section with meebers that I remembered. For a log file you could try going to Caldon Ken's link and then clicking on Log Files in the left panel. it'll tell you there how to see the setupact.log and others.

    Looking in these three areas may also yield some clues; Reliability History or Event Viewer under windows logs\system, type in eventvwr.msc into Run to get there. In lieu of a log file wouldn't device manager show any of the devices with a problem with one of those icons?

    I updated edition index value tables for official Windows 10 ISO images in my post in TenForums video thread. As I thought that those index values might benefit other geeks, too, I am quoting the whole long post here:

    New video: Dual Boot - The Easy Way



    The easiest possible method to dual boot. No partitioning, no virtualization required. Deploy Windows 10 on a virtual hard disk VHD or VHDX file, add it to boot menu. When done, when you no longer want to dual boot, just delete the VHD file.

    The DISKPART script and deployment batch from video:

    DISKPART scripts are normal text files with extension .txt. To run a DISKPART script, enter following command:

    diskpart /s DRIVE:\FOLDER\SCRIPT.TXT

    Here's the script used in video:
    Code:
    create vdisk file=F:\W10PRO.vhdx maximum=51200 type=expandable
    attach vdisk
    create part primary
    format quick label="Windows"
    assign letter=W
    exit
    Save script as VHDConfig.txt

    Above script creates a dynamically expanding 50 GB (51,200 MB) VHDX file (you can use .vhd or .vhdx) named W10PRO.vhdx in root of drive F:, labels it Windows and assigns it a temporary drive letter W:. Edit script to meet your needs, be sure the drive you create VHD has double the free storage than the size of VHD; if you will create a 100 GB VHD file to be used in dual boot, the drive where it will be created needs 200 GB free.

    Also, be sure to assign an unused drive letter! I always use W: which I have reserved for this purpose, never assigning it to anything else. In any case the drive letter will only be needed for deployment, it will be freed when VHD will be unmounted.

    The deployment batch is really simple, too. It just runs DISKPART script to set up VHD, deploys Windows on it with DISM, adds it to host boot menu and finally changes the boot menu entry to something more descriptive:
    Code:
    start /wait diskpart /s E:\Users\Kari\Scripts\VHDConf.txt
    start /wait dism /apply-image /imagefile:I:\sources\install.wim /index:8 /applydir:W:\
    start /wait bcdboot W:\Windows
    start /wait bcdedit /set {default} description "W10 PRO EN-GB (VHD)"
    cls
    @echo off
    echo. 
    echo Windows deployed to VHD file
    echo and added to host boot menu.
    echo.
    pause
    exit
    Save batch file as VHDBoot.bat

    Again, edit the batch to meet your needs. Be sure path to DISKPART script is correct, and that path to install.wim (or in case of MCT ISO install.esd) is correct in DISM command. Select correct index value. Check that BCDBOOT will add Windows to boot menu from correct disk, the drive letter here must be the same DISKPART script assigned to VHD.

     Windows 10 ISO edition index values


    Table 1: Official Windows 10 ISO images

    Edition index values for ISO images downloaded from Download Windows 10 Disc Image (ISO File)

    • ESD = ISO image created with Windows Media Creation Tool (install.esd file instead of install.wim)
    • WIM = WIM based ISO image (requires browser user agent change)


    Notice that values in WIM column also apply for official Insider ISO images downloaded from Download Windows 10 Insider Preview Advanced

    Edition ESD WIM
    Home 1 1
    Home N 2 2
    Home SL 3 3
    Pro 6 6
    Pro N 7 7
    Pro Education - 8
    Pro Education N - 9
    Pro for Workstation - 10
    Pro for Workstation N - 11
    Education 4 4
    Education N 5 5


    Table 2: Visual Studio (former MSDN) subscriber ISO images

    Edition index values for ISO images downloaded from Sign in to your account
    • VSB= Business editions ISO image
    • VSC= Consumer editions ISO image


    Edition VSB VSC
    Home - 1
    Home N - 2
    Home SL - 3
    Pro 5 6
    Pro N 6 7
    Pro Education 7 8
    Pro Education N 8 9
    Pro for Workstation 9 10
    Pro for Workstation N 10 11
    Education 1 4
    Education N 2 5
    Enterprise 3 -
    Enterprise N 4 -
    Enterprise for Virtual Desktops 11 -

    All single edition ISO images have index value 1 for edition in question regardless of edition, for instance whatever edition you are running, its index = 1 if you made the ISO by yourself with UUPtoISO.

    I just downloaded this update as well, but I haven't installed it yet.

    Is it safe for me to reboot and install it?

    Is there anything special I need to do? For example, when I reboot to install Windows 10 updates I always do a "soft reboot" by restarting . After the restart I then do a "cold reboot" by shutting down the whole system and unplugging it from the wall.

    You need not bother with unplugging from the wall, normal shutdown would do. That may be needed only when updating BIOS.

    First you need to make an Image of your system with a tool like Macrium. Things go south you restore.

    A restart is not soft. Windows is reloaded from scratch. What you call a cold boot is also not a cold boot by default even if you unplug. Windows Fast Startup is used to speed up boot process.

    Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10


    If you want to temporarily by-pass Fast Startup hold shift key down and click Shutdown

    IMO Fast Start is an abomination that should always be disabled.
    A Restart should mean just that (which it does) but a "cold" start should never bypass any of the start process! MS got it precisely the wrong way around!

    Thanks for the advice and pointers. The system that I am having this problems with is my main Windows system. I can't mess with it during the weekdays. I will have to try all these good ideas over the weekend. I will report back with success of failure.
