    Welcome to Ten Forums.
    Go have a look here: Defrag: Windows 10 Creators Update Updating, Fixing a Win10 Homegroup, Star Trek VR and more... Channel 9

    Watch the video and download anything needed, if possible have a second device on hand so you can go through the steps, while updating.

    WIndows requires to be installed on ~40-50 GB partition. It does not matter, how much free space you have, upgrade will fail otherwise. I had 50GB and lowered it to 40GB and it fails, even though I have 25GB free.

    Download ISO and perform a clean install or try to upgrade from ISO, but I do not think that will work either.

    Turn off hibernation temporarily, do disk cleanup, removing all system files, insert a 16GB flash drive, and download iso to that, mount iso as a drive and run setup.exe.
