    Double checking... can you not use a USB thumb drive created by the Media Creation Tool to upgrade Windows to 1903?

    I created a USB drive from the tool and in trying to upgrade from the USB drive, I keep getting this...

    And no, I've got no other USB HD/SSD drives installed.

    Thanks.

    It's a known issue acknowledged by Microsoft...


    Microsoft said:
    ....To safeguard your update experience, we have applied a hold on devices with an external USB device or SD memory card attached from being offered Windows 10, version 1903 until this issue is resolved.

    ...Microsoft is working on a resolution and estimate a solution will be available in late May.

    A workaround is to copy Setup.exe from the root of your USB and its Sources folder to a temporary folder on your HDD, then run Setup from there. You can delete the temporary folder when done. I have done just that to upgrade some of my machines.

    Both my non insider PC's updated to 1903, one Home one Pro, just used the update assistant on both. Both done inside an hour, zero problems.

    Note, the download page was still showing 1809 on the web page until I unplugged my USB backup drives and rebooted this PC, was fine on the other one.

    I had my hard drive plugged in and it was working all the time.

    Thanks Bree.

    Although I find the notice from Microsoft a bit vague... "....To safeguard your update experience, we have applied a hold on devices with an external USB device or SD memory card attached from being offered Windows 10, version 1903 until this issue is resolved."

    The writing nearly sounds like it's addressing USB drives already attached to systems in a permanent way. My system has no such drives installed, so why the "hold" (not being offered the update)

    @ tornadosurvivor,

    Damn isn't a cuss word. You may not like the word, but it isn't a cuss word. And there are plenty of words and phrases I don't like, but I don't impose myself on others like that.

    Peace:)

    I'm ready to give up.
    I have 4 laptops that I am trying to upgrade from 1809 to 1903.

    The oldest one (2 yrs old) I had to replace the hard drive in and it has had problems with booting after installing cumulative updates. It upgraded on the first try with upgrade assistant.

    Another one (1 yr old) I tried every way possible at least a dozen times and it failed every one. Finally I restored it to 1803 and then it upgraded to 1903 with no issues.

    I have two new laptops that are less than a month old and they refuse to upgrade from 1809 to 1903. Again, I have tried everything.
    Nothing external including mouse attached. Plenty of space C: is SSD with 160GB free. D: is 1TB hard drive with 767GB free.
    Latest CU installed. Tried multiple times with ESD Flash drive, Update Assistant online, ESD DVD, and WIM ISO mounted. Uninstalled Antivirus and disabled Malwarebytes.
    Tried with clean boot.

    Every time they fail with 0X800Y70004-0X2000D

    The installation failed in the SAFE-OS phase with an error during MIGRATE_DATA operation.”

    SetupDiag reports fatal migration plug-in failure.
    Plug-in Name = %windir%\system32\migration\SxsMigPlugin.dll
    Migration Operation = IPostApply->PostApply
    Plug-in Error: 0x00000002
