    KB4560960 Update and 2004 update - Error 0x800f081f


    Hello all, I haven't been able to successfully update my computer for a few months now because with every new update I get the error code 0x800f081f. Google searches tell me that it's because I don't have netframe 3.5 installed. Well I follow the steps to turn it on under windows features. I make sure all check boxes related to it and the 4.8 netframe are checked and turned on. I restart my computer and I still get the same error. I've done cfs scan and a DISM scan. I've tried the offline netframe install and it tells me I already have it installed. I've tried to reset windows update to fix the error and still nothing works. I still get the error. I've had this laptop for nearly two years with nothing but issues with it since the day I received it. I just wanna throw it against a wall especially after all the money I had to spend to have a new hard drive put in it after it crashed causing me to lose everything I had. Oh, and if things couldn't get better, the last two days around the same time at night when running on battery power the stupid thing just ups and dies without warning, and no, it wasn't because my battery was dead. I just don't understand why I have so many computer issues when I do everything I can to keep it up to date and cleaned.

    BTW, my windows version number is 1909.

    Hi, the only solution I've seen for that error number is to perform an in-place upgrade repair install. Just like any upgrade this keeps all progs and data.

    Download a 1909 iso using the relevant section here:
    Download Windows 10 ISO File

    rt click and Mount the iso, open the new drive letter, run setup.exe.

    a new hard drive put in it after it crashed causing me to lose everything I had.
    Avoid that by making and maintaining appropriate backups. tenforums members time and again advise the regular use of disk imaging e.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + large enough external storage for image files.

    Do that and if you image all Windows partitions- even if your system disk fails you can restore things as they were yourself and have everything running as before in a couple of hours. You can often avoid clean installs.

    More: feel free to search the forum (where this error number is reported for this update) for

    BTW, I should also mention I attempted to do the windows reset thing and it said the process couldn't be completed.

    Here's the image from the latest SFC Scan I just did showing that it says there are no issues.

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    An in-place upgrade repair is different. Please read the other threads, then decide what you'd like to do.

    I think I got things fixed. I used the info you gave me and the info in another thread to download a new copy of version 1909 and installed it and then did three small updates without any issues. All updates were successful. Even my sleep function is back and active again and it had previously disappeared as well. Thanks a lot!!

    Well I thought I had it fixed but now I'm back to getting the dredded BSOD uncorrectable error again. I started getting that error after I had the hard drive replaced. I don't remember what setting I changed to fix that problem and keep it from happening. It was something to do with one of my drivers and me having to disable it. I fix one problem and another pops up. I swear, I have never had this many issues with a single computer before but this one here just blows my mind!!

    on the initial problem.

    As to the BSOD, there's a dedicated section with a special log collector tool used when posting to post your new problem, unless you can remember your previous fix.

    With any upgrade, a new set of drivers is delivered which may result in changes.

    Yeah, I did that once before but I don't believe I ever received a response after I posted my info log or whatever it's called.

    Everything's voluntary and free.. there are few members who deal with BSODs and sometimes those threads run on a while- you get what you pay for, I'm afraid.. plus people look at posts and think whether they can contribute usefully or not. Not everything gets answered- a lot of people want help. Some people give many hours trying to help.

    I remember now that my display adapter causes my BSOD. If I disable it then it stops the crashes but it causes me to not be able to do things like put my computer to sleep. I don't understand.

    BTW, I was able to successfully upgrade to version 2004 today. So there's that.

    Happy the 2004 upgrade worked for you. See the list of issues being added to:
    Known and Resolved issues for Windows 10 May 2020 Update version 2004

    Now's the time to start creating a new disk image set before something breaks: e.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + large enough external storage for image files.
