Windows 10: 10547 Update: A Story

    10547 Update: A Story


    The 10547 build was released a couple weeks ago, and I successfully installed it on three Windows 10 machines - my desktop and two Thinkpads - without incident.

    But on the third Thinkpad, an R61, it would repetitively hang and eventually fail 97% of the way through the process, that being 90% through the final "Configuring Settings" boot. Event Viewer would show one of the illy-defined hex error codes, my recollection being that it ended in 0002.

    I tried the usual tricks such as removing the SoftwareDistribution folder, disabling AV, building an ISO, etc.

    Out of desperation, I went to my Windows Home Server and restored the computer to a date in, arbitrarily, early July. That happened to be running a somewhat earlier build of Windows 10.

    This time 10547 downloaded and installed with no problems.

    No questions to raise here, but I have no idea what I could have done if I didn't have the luxury of Windows Home Server backing up all my machines every day.

    Hi there

    many stand alone Free (bootable) products can back up machines. There are also a load of decent commercial ones too such as paragon, macrium, acronis, to name just a few . You don't need Windows Home server to perform a backup.

    You can even back up Windows systems for free using any old Linux distro and using the DD command (easier ways than that though).

    There is 100% no need to have to use something like Windows Home server -- however it's always a good idea to take regular backups --whatever tools you use.

    Cheers

    True - I could have phrased the "solution" more clearly; this just happens to be the product that I use. A non-current image backup bailed me out of a situation that I couldn't solve in a more traditional manner.
