    Anniversary Update - error 0x800703ee


    Hi and greetings from Sweden!

    New on the forum, long time lurker.

    So my problem. Windows 10 wont update. Error code "0x800703ee". Things i have tried so far:




    A while ago i had to recreate my EFI parition, perhaps it has something to do with it?
    The last thing is to do a clean install, but such a hassel with all my hours of customization down the drain.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hello, I had a similar error after running the windows 10 upgrader app from this link

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...setting_client

    but my error message was 0x80070057 after the app had completely downloaded the update and in my search for the answer I found this microsoft answers page and used the elevated command prompt fix

    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/i...6942a71?auth=1

    and it simply confirmed the downloads integrity and began installing, now there's no direct evidence why it should work in your case with a different error message but I thought maybe you could try it and see if it helps since its not as major as a registry edit and since it sounds like you still have a working version of the last edition of windows 10.

    Im using an internal SSD on a SATA III link in AHCI mode and a google search for just your error code comes up with problems with external storage devices, im a bit tired and cant think of what or where i always see UEFI but i think you were in a similar predicament to my own so here's what i read and listened to to help myself



    _Erni_ replied on

    gpedit.msc (right-click and run as administrator!) -> Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Update -> Configure Automatic Updates -> Not Configured

    cmd.exe (right-click and run as administrator!) ->type gpupdate /force

    Now your windows updates work



    I never bothered to change my group policy setting for automatic updates from what i had it on (notify for download & install) but it worked completely fine and almost every setting was left untouched besides the ones for apps that i had removed using powershell from my previous windows 10 build, so it sounded like it was what you were looking for.

    Did you solve your problem? I have exact same problem; Error 0x800703ee when windows 10 tries installing 1607. I've also tried your initial steps; no luck.
