Hi,

 

I've been trying to update my PC for a while now and it seems like it just refuses to update and stalls either at 99% or 0%.

 

I've tried clearing the update cache (C:/Windows/SoftwareDistribution + net stop wuauserv) which doesn't seem to work.

 

I've also tried updating to anniversary edition which also failed.

I don't really have the exact error codes but I do recall something along the lines of FIRST_BOOT, it hung on the screen with the blue windows logo and the loading dots for 5+ hours.

 

I've tried to download the updates manually from the Microsoft update catalog, letting windows update run for 10+ hours, and some other stuff.

 

My winver is showing up as Version 10.0 (Build 10240).

 

I built the PC myself, specs are as follows:

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-X99-UD4

GPU: 2x EVGA GeForce GTX 980

PSU: EVGA SuperNova 1300

CPU: Intel i7-5938K

SSD: 2x SAMSUNG 850 EVO

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 Series 16GB

HDD: Seagate Desktop HDD 3TB

 You have an obsolete version of Windows 10.  You're probably going to have to download the Media Creation Tool and use it to get current.  You can get it here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 .

 

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

I've had this for a couple hours already, should I just let it keep running?

Matt,

 

         I would not.  You need to snag the ISO for the latest Windows 10 version for your platform (and edition of Windows - Home or Pro) and after burning it to a DVD try upgrading that way.
