    Well, this is my first post and I just thought I'd pitch in with a solution as this thread was a great source of help and I thought I'd return the favour.

    Basically, based on the error code I got from the event viewer I began to suspect that the system reserved partition was to blame for the problem... and it was. Essentially in my case it was a combination of two problems. Firstly the system reserved partition had errors that prevented me from resizing it and secondly the error code suggested that it was too small in the first place.

    So basically what I did was mount the partition using diskpart and then scan it using chkdsk. this fixed the errors and I then used minitool partition wizard to resize the partition and enlarge it. The update installed straight away after this. Hopefully this will be of some help to you all and maybe solve this problem.
    What should I be looking for in the Event Viewer on my system?
    What size should the reserved partition be? Mine is 500GB and there is 175MB free.
    How exactly do I mount it and check for error?

    I am not able to go beyond this. Also with the windows update tool I have tried and it failed at 33% without any message. Please advice.

    I have Windows 10 10240 RTM x64 Bit version running on my system,
    The issue is that windows 10 Updates fails to install.
    Attachment 26066

    sfc /scannow and those things never worked for me in any windows version, since it always ends up giving an error or log file.
    I have tried using these two as well

    But they also failed to solve the issue with the update. Any help on this matter would be great.
    The failing updates are. :

    Directly download the windows 10 ISO file and put that in a USB and start the update or do a clean install.

    Has anyone found a solution for non Nvidia Users? I tried all the solutions listed but nothing worked (I don't have those registry entries). This is annoying also because when it fails installing, it automatically restores windows settings after rebooting (ie i loose language settings for another accounts)

    Fixed with reinstall!


    I don't have Nvidia and the registry fix and sfc scan did not work for me. What did work was to run the MediaCreationTool and save the Win 10 install to an ISO. I then right clicked and mounted the ISO and run the setup from the mounted ROM (no need to burn to USB or DVD) to reinstall. It should pull the updates down as part of the reinstall. This worked a charm for me.

    Hopefully this helps others.

    So basically you just reinstall like an upgrade? With no formatting?

    Yes it prompts as an upgrade, there is no formatting. Just make sure when you create the ISO you choose the same language pack as your version (check your language pack in control panel > Languages). Needs to be same language pack else when you run the option to keep your files and apps is greyed out.

    When I start it it asks for upgrade or create media for another PC, what should I choose? I guess the latter?

    Thank you!
