    Feature Update to Windows 10, version 1709 stuck at 96%


    As the title of the topic suggests, the update is just stuck at 96%. This is the second time I'm trying to download this update. The first time it was stuck at 95% and now this.

    Is there any other way to download this update. And also, how should I cancel the update cause as I'm writing this it is stuck. Or should I just wait it out for it to fail by itself?

    EDIT: It got solved on its own. Will reopen a new thread if any new error occurs.

    hate to say this but i feel you. 1709 fall update is being forced on me now.. and just like 1703 i 100% in my mind dont expect this to work. the creator updates have simply ****ed with my windows so much that its entirely pointless even attempting to install it on my pc. tho in your situation you managed to fixed the problem. it seems now matter what i do i cant get creator updates to install ever.

    yet ive done a multitude of different suggestions. from media creation tool, sfc, dism, secure boot & fast boot being disabled. to the stand alone update in a exe file.

    nothing ****ing works.

    Hi DiBBz. Have you seen this article.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/win...dy_UpgradeTips

    Does it help identify where yours is going down the drain.

    While not a solution, per say, have you considered a Clean install?

    Before even considering this I would create bootable media for the installed version using the Windows task - Recovery Drive and I would do a backup with Macrium Reflect.

    Your spec says you device was modified. Could you share what was done. I would have a look at that article.

    hi there. well i wont know cause i cant cancel the download or install process, which its currently at 87% right now on the update window. but just like the advice you had given me on my failures with 1703. if those solutions didn't work i dont think it will work with this.

    only option that youve said that i haven't tried is a clean install of the creators update. which ive explained i dont have the time to do so as that would require about 3-5hours minimum backing up everything again. as well as wiping the HDD and setting aside maybe 2 hours at best to get the creator update install... thats if it will install
