    Issues with update 1909

    I am using an Asus vivo book processor Intel(R) Celeron(R) N4000 CPU @110GHZ, Ram 4.00 GB (3.83 GB usable)
    64 bit operating system, X64-based processor.
    Storage..this PC (C:) 58.2 GB, 48.9 GB used 9.29 GB free. Windows 10 Home version. Using windows security for antivirus.

    Version 1909 Download took 6 hours then got a popup saying windows needs more space to update.
    Inserted 60 GB thumbdrive it started install took about 1 hour and then it started configuring and that took 1/2 hour.
    Then got notification saying "working on updates, this could take awhile, your PC will restart several times do not turn off PC.
    4 hours later it was still at 0%. Shut down laptop and restarted and it removed all changes.
    I am pretty much useless at this stuff and any help would be very much appreciated.

    Win 10 Pro (22H2) (2nd PC is 22H2)

    9.2Gb free is far too small for an upgrade. What is your current build?

    In general for PCs like yours with such restricted space you can download the iso file manually to a USB disk, then attempt the upgrade manually. Best to attempt that without accepting updates when you get to that prompt.

    But you will need to do everything you can to make free space - upgrades create Windows.old on C: which is as large as your existing Windows.

    There are quite a few threads on upgrading PCs with very limited storage.

    i'm pretty much useless when it comes to this stuff, I believe the build is 17763.1039
    When it told me I needed more space I plugged in a 64 GB thumbdrive and it recognized it. From what I understood that was acceptable way of adding more storage.

    Win10 Version 21H2 Pro and Home, Win11 Pro and Home

    Unfortunately adding a plug-in/USB drive may not always work, didn't with my Dell Inspiron 11 3000 2-in-1 with 32GB SSD. It now is happily running Linux Mint 19.3, got a renewed/refurb Dell 12.5" Latitude as a replacement, $150 with a 1 yr. warranty, 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD running Win10 Pro X64.

    It all had to do with Microsoft changing the storage requirements a couple versions back and most 32GB drives will most likely have the problem. Maybe Win10 S will work but it has other limits.
