Windows 10: Microsoft Windows 10 Anniversary install fail: 'We're finalizing fix"
Microsoft Windows 10 Anniversary install fail: 'We're finalizing fix"
Microsoft is promising a fix soon for last Friday's update to the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, which sent some machines into an endless reboot loop.
As reported by ZDNet, Cumulative Update, Build 14393.222, aka KB3194496, for the Windows 10 Anniversary Update trapped some devices in a loop after failed installation attempts...

This is just another example of sloppy MS software engineering. Maybe it's time for an independent quality audit to check their adherence to ISO software quality procedures. I'm assuming of course that MS does have full ISO software quality accreditation?
I wonder what they stuff up when they do fix this issue? the Network Discovery AGAIN?
This is quite amazing that some were affected by this and the previous 2 updates.
What I would like to see is not just a fix ,but some feedback as to what the problems are.
Ok - so how do you apply the fix if you are in an endless boot loop?
I'm not sure if you know much about ISO (I assume you're referring to ISO 900x and the like), but all these certifications do is require you to have *A* process, not that it be a good process. (I'm not saying MS's isn't good, i'm just saying that ISO certification isn't a guarantee of one).

You can completely have terrible quality and still pass an audit, so long as you are following the process you defined.
Outside the Box
Some computers have installed the update faultlessly ( my four included ) yet others cannot.
Now I wonder why?....clashing software perhaps....impossible for M$ to cover all computers with their differing specifications.
Obviously it is extremely annoying for those affected, but you cannot expect M$ to perform miracles.
Has it been possibly because of force removing apps that don't have uninstaller's?
Registry or privacy hacks/adjustments that are not part of windows out of the box?
3rd party start menus and other changes?
Computers that have not had at least ONE clean install since lets say 1511?
The 100's of home user computers I support have not had these issues.
Mine was clean installed November last year.
I have not removed any MS-installed apps.
I have not made any privacy hacks or adjustments to my system at all.
I use the W10 normal start menu.
I do have an Xbox 360 and Xbox One in my house. The fix posted on neowin, removing the Xbox folders/registry entries/tasks worked for me.
Has anyone else run into this problem while trying to install the Windows 10 Anniversary Upgrade? The updater gives me this message, saying "Uninstall this app now because it isn't compatible with Windows 10", but it provides no name for the app and...
I downloaded the Anniversary Update and ran it. It seemed to be doing ok - the % complete got up to 91%, including several restarts, and then I got the frowning face icone with the message "Something went wrong". After that my screen said it was...
