    Anniversary Update Restoring back to Last version.


    Hello
    Has anyone here had the problem with windows 10 anniversary edition restoring back to the last version?
    My machine took a half hour downloading and installing. All looked fine but just when I thought it was done I got the message "Restoring to previous version"
    After a while longer it had trouble booting that was only corrected by cycling power and booting a couple of more times.
    In the end I'm back where I started.
    This has been reported on a few other sites as well.

    Welcome to the club. It's not at all clear what to do about this.

    Are you using the Upgrade Method or Clean Install ?

    From what I have read on this forum and others, Clean Install seems to be the best method.

    Sorry, I am not going to reinstall all my software again. I did that once when I upgraded from Win7 ==> Win10. I'd rather stick with my current build which is working fine.

    Requiring a clean install is not a reasonable requirement anyway.

    Can't argue that point. I had issues with a clean install on a separate partition and went back to 1511.

    Did you upgrade thru the normal Windows Update or download early from the Microsoft site ? If thru normal Windows Update, you may want to try again using the second link above which also has an upgrade option. May or may not make a difference.

    My system has not yet received the Anniversary Update, so I have tried installing the download version several times. When all these failed I went to the Win10 Iso installer.

    I'm having a similar problem on a Surface Pro 3 (by *Microsoft*!). At first I was updating via Windows Update. Then I got the Media Creation Tool and run it. It also resulted in reverting to 1511, but at least gave me a reason code:

    We couldn't installWindows 10

    0x80070002 - 0x20007
    The installationfailed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during INSTALL_DRIVERS operation


    I will try the ISO method now, although I am not hopeful as it fails rather late in the process. I vague recall reading something about there being a limit on the amount of time that is allowed for a driver to install and the Realtek HD audio drivers on the Surface Pro 3 exceed that time. I have no idea how to determine if that's the case and what to do to fix it.

    FWIW, I used the MCT method to update my desktop PC just fine.

    I just remembered I had the same issue (return to previous version) when updating from Win 8 to 8.1. What solved the issue for my system was clearing the Windows Store Cache and running sfc/scannow. You may want to try if you haven't before. As weird as that sounds it was the fix at the time.

    I reinstalled 1607 tonight on a separate partition. So far it seems to be good.

    Mine was doing the auto update the first time.
    I ran the update a second time with the same results.
    Guess I'll wait until they fix it and hope they don't push it for another auto update.

    Greetings! I cleared the Windows Store Cache and ran sfc/scannow (it did find uncorrectable errors). I then ran the update from USB media. I'm still getting the same errors: 0x80070002 - 0x20007, in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during INSTALL_DRIVERS operation.

    Does anyone have further thoughts on how to get past driver installation errors during the update?

    Thanks.
