Windows 10: W10 Update gives out 0x80070002 after 0x800f0816 & keeps uninstalling
W10 Update gives out 0x80070002 after 0x800f0816 & keeps uninstalling
Hi everybody out there,
having unsuccessfully tried to get help on German boards,
I have registered here. Maybe someone can help me.
I upgraded to Win10 in August and everything went fine until October 17, where my PC's event log states that
KB 3097617 failed to install due to 0x800f0816
Five days later the error code changed to 0x80070002
WIndows messages told me that updates could not be installed (as did and DOES the update procedure itself every time I tell my PC to "Reboot").
A manual install from the MS Website of the said Update failed on October 24th as well.
KB 3105216 installed successfully on October the 25th.
Then the cumulative Upgrade KB 3105210 started installing (but remained unsuccessful) on October 31st. It's basically the same problem just switched to the new update as far as I get it.
Event log first gave out error 0x800f0816 again with this new package, the error code changing to 0x80070002 on November 8th.
Another manual install from the MS website failed on November 8th.
My computer runs fine but the issue keeps me troubled because Updates should work fine in my opinion.
So finally I decided (more or less in despair) to try the new Win10 (Reset State) option in the Win10 Settings / Recovery section.
The machine gave me a (quite long) list of programs I would have to reinstall from scrap after creating an image of C: (which I did on drive W). But THEN: It told me the Reset could not be executed and now I'm here.
This is my PC:

I've just tried to upload my CBS.log here (Somebody said experts could get something out of it - I can't),
but it's size is 4.74MB (maybe due to the same error thing) so I can't upload it here your site has just told me.
I'm grateful for every little hint I can get.
No one so far?
Hm, well here is today's part of the CBS.log which I cut out of the whole file.
Maybe someone can help me understand what's going wrong.
Thanks in advance for any help.
thank you for the link. Unfortunately so far, things haven't changed.
As I thought it would react, TH2 won't install at the moment on my PC.
I'll keep you updated on my issue. Still happy about further suggestions.
I think you better upgrade it using the Media Creation Tool, and upgrade it keeping all your files and apps, it worked fine for me, here is a Brink link for doing it:
Windows 10 ISO Download - Windows 10 Forums
Well, thank you Gas, but so far it does not for me. All I get is a box from Win10 setup saying that it can't proceed and that I have to restart my computer to try again next time. Maybe I can upload the screenshot, let's see.
This is what I get when I try to run the new ISO from the CD...
Try not saving/writing ISO to a CD, there is the option to upgrade straight from the Media Creation Tool, am I understanding correctly, is what you did?
Did you also check if you have enough free space in your C drive?
Let me know
thanks for keeping up the conversation. The screenshot was made after I had burned a new ISO.
So maybe it's still going to work.
I'll try again to start the setup directly from the MS tool tonight.
My C Drive is a new SSD (102GB free from a total of 232GB) so memory space on the SSD should not be the problem.
I somehow am under the impression that something during the "activation" process in August must have gone wrong somehow. It took me days to get Win10 activated correctly, but then everything was fine for 2 months.
I'll keep you updated on this.
Thanks so far,
If you are going to clean install you will noto lose what you nave on others drives, when you install del et all partition in drive 0 the main one then hit male it new (a star is next to it)
I am interested in setting up some company-wide commands to remove a lot of the built-in crap from Windows 10. Employees don't need to be using the Xbox app, and we don't need Get Office, Get Skype etc as we already have those...
I'm SURE this has been hammered to death, but my searches aren't finding the 20016 error...........
As a user of Windows since 3.1 and DOS before that, I'm used to new versions having problems with installs, running like crap,...
how can I uninstall all these apps I don't need? The tutorial Apps - Uninstall in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums is not working. As the folder of the app actually remains.
IM on the shop trying to download some things and when i click install, it says something went wrong! Please help if you can, i have an up to date windows 10 PC. I would really appreciate if some would could help.
Since I rarely use Windows Media Player these days after they changed things in Windows 8, is it worth actually uninstalling it or will that cause some problems because some facilities are tied to the software?
