    You’re welcome. I hope that fixes the problem so you can upgrade to 22H2.

    I hope so too, this is seriously driving me nuts.

    I won't be able to try again until tomorrow as I have to sort out something else first unrelated to the PC. I'll update when I've tried your suggestion.

    Thanks again.

    Hello @WinTenner,

    I would mount the ISO & run setup from there.
    I agree.

    Should I have run the Setup from a USB drive instead?
    Not needed.
    WinTenner said:
    (using Rufus to install onto the USB drive of course).
    Not needed.
    WinTenner said:
    Or should I have booted from the USB drive?
    Definitely not.

    WinTenner said:
    Should I be running it from a mounted ISO
    Yes
    WinTenner said:
    or an ISO that has been installed onto a USB with Rufus?
    You do not need to put it onto a USB.
    And Rufus is not required.

    As for Shutup10, how can I verify that it's put back everything as it was prior to it being used?
    I thought you'd uninstalled that. If not then I urge you to do so.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Regarding Shutup10 - it's not something that installs, you just fire it up, make changes then exit. It also has an option to set everything back to their default values which is what I did.

    Well, the torturous and sorry tale continues ..........

    I have twice now tried to do an update from the 1909 ISO but hit on the exact same issue both times: The main update from the ISO goes just fine and the PC reboots then starts to install from there. It gets to 60% then errors with:

    Windows could not configure one or more system components

    To install Windows restart the computer and then restart the install


    on a restart it goes through 'undoing the changes', etc. On logging into Windows it then displays a dialog box with:

    The Installation Failed in the FIRST_BOOT Phase

    and it shows the error:

    0xC1900101 – 0x30018

    There was very slightly more text to it than that and I forgot to take a screenshot, however the above is correct as far as it goes as I wrote down the key parts above.

    I had detached the external devices except for keyboard and mouse.

    One thing I forgot to do was disable the antivirus, should that make a difference?

    Any more ideas please?

    If
    SFC finds no faults, and
    you have not installed anything to inhibit Windows update, and
    you have not tweaked anything to inhibit Windows update, and
    Repair install procedures fail, then
    you are left with no option but a Clean install.
    Clean Install - TenForumsTutorials and, in preparation for one, consider Backup and Restore Device Drivers - TenForumsTutorials

    Currently tempted to ditch Windows and switch to Linux ........ this has been such a huge pain of a problem.

    Thanks for all of your help.

    Thanks for all of your failed attempts to help.

    Do you perhaps have an old system image from before your Windows update problems started?
    You could try restoring that and updating from there. [As I mentioned before, update to 2004 first and only then to 22H2.]

    And do make a new system image before you try anything so that you can be confident of getting back to square one.

    I don't have such a system image I'm sorry to say.

    No worries about the drive contents though as I do a backup clone to an identical drive every so often.
