    i made a recovery usb when I initially got this laptop setup so that should be from the 10240 build. I dont have the 10240 iso.

    Simrick, this is from the previous thread. I had asked him to post the bcdedit data.

    Windows 10 fails to update - Page 11 - Windows 10 Forums

    The results:

    bcddata.txt says
    The boot configuration data store could not be opened.
    The requested system device cannot be found.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Does not look good.

    If Navy's instructions for bcdedit fixes don't fly, he may need the ISO from whatever version he is on (still don't know that from WINVER), boot it to try a repair boot records.
    TC - I am thinking his System partition is either corrupt or too small (or both). With those partitions he has, that looks to me to be the problem. I am thinking......I have resolved partition problems for others by doing this: (not explicit instructions, just general so Ryantw don't follow this):

    Boot to Kyhi's recovery media, use Macrium
    Create a verified image of the hard drive completely (a fall back)
    Clean install W10 on an unallocated disk (creates proper partitions-doesn't matter which version)
    Boot to Kyhi's media again
    Open Macrium, drag C partition from the image over to the new C partition on the fresh install.

    It's a bit of work, but would clean things up for him. Do you agree his partitions are the problem?

    EDIT: This would give him a clean W10 install without any HP bloatware, or other programs that may have come with the machine. It would also wipe his HP recovery partition.

    He has the HP Recovery thumb he made when he first got the machine. If he boots to that, will there be an option, similar to booting an ISO, to do the recovery of boot records? Not refresh all the way back to factory, just repair the boot records? I think it's right after the keyboard/language screen and accept eula and all that, at bottom left corner.

    If not, use media creation tool to put 10240 on that thumb or another blank one, boot from it and fix the boot records.

    I don't know - I prefer not to use OEM recovery anything......

    You may be right. :)
    Still, I think his system partition is too small, don't you?

    EDIT:
    I think this should be 350-450MB, no?

    Normally, if clean install did it, it would be 450MB, but who knows what logic HP is using to customize things.

    Wonder what he's doing.......
