Windows 10: Still waiting for the Anniversary update

    Windows 10)

    I'm assuming this version may or may not include the latest CU, but certainly the anniversary update. You say you've tried ISO before, would that be the second option using the media creation tool then? Again, what exactly happened when you tried either route? The first option using the media creation tool was what worked for me. Like you, I had no time for a clean install, so I ran it over my existing Windows.

    I just found a few posts explaining that the 0xC1900101 - 0x20017 error that I get after each upgrade attempt, can occur on systems equipped with an Intel i3, i5 or i7 (I have a 4-core i7). I have been told that the workaround is to set the processor in mono mode (by disabling the additional cores) before launching the upgrade.

    I will not even try. If an OS is unable to upgrade itself on a system using a processor that caused absolutely no problem with previous Windows versions, then not only the installer or the new OS are buggy but even in the case of a successful installation, I'll consider the new version as risky. If it cannot deal with my processor when installing, I'm sure that other problems are to be expected after the installation.

    I think I'll probably wait until Microsoft has fixed this dubious Anniversary upgrade.

    Different story, though. The OP originally claimed he didn't get the update in the first place, hence my response(s). Then he became more specific with the actual error. Now on page 2 of this thread, I still don't know whether or not he's tried to install the latest CU directly, which might solve all of his problems. The article you're referencing seems to confirm that.

    FWIW, I concur: Woody is usually a no-BS, completely reliable source of Windows info and insight. Why I posted that link...

    Excuse my ignorance but (as a foreigner) I'm not familiar with all these acronyms : what is actually a CU ?

    I have tried all possible ways to install the anniversary upgrade (Windows Update and by using the ISO file) with exception of a clean install which is not an option for me at this time. Installing from the CD created with the ISO file also failed but additionally, a lot of system settings had been reset and I spent a lot of time getting everything right again. So I'm reluctant to try again.

    I tried all (at least most of) the fixes that are suggested in various forums and on the Microsoft sites, to no avail. Now, Windows Update no longer offers the Anniversary upgrade and I'm trying to understand why and I'm also trying to find information about the mentioned error code (but nobody seems to be clear about what it means).

    Hey, aren't we all... I am a Euro expat myself, and english is not my mother tongue. CU=Cumulative Update. Meaning it includes and supersedes all previous updates.

    GO CUBS!!!!!
