I have tried to allow Windows Update to install it and have also downloaded the manual installer, both have failed.

 

This was while AVG Security was still running on the machine, which is now removed, but I had not heard anything regarding AVG blocking the Anniversary Update.

 

It's set to install again via Windows Update mode overnight tonight.  If it fails now, with Windows Defender as the antivirus & firewall, what should I look at to start trying to determine why this is failing?

Based on what the client mentioned this morning I suspect it did fail again, but will have to confirm later today.

I also want to throw one other data point in there that might be pertinent, though it rehashes a bit from my other thread on repartitioning.

 

My gut is telling me that the C: and D: drives were repartitioned, too, since the D: drive would logically have been the on-board recovery drive but both C: and D: were split around 50/50 of the whole disc size.  This is unusual, to say the least.   On my machine the C: drive got 441 GB of the full 500 while the D: drive got 21.2 GB.   I know that there is approximately 35 GB of space left on the C: drive which I believe is about 10% of capacity.  I am wondering:

 

  1. If this might not be enough space for the AU to work with and apply itself.
  2. If I should merge the C: and D: drives into simply C: or at least juggle the partitions such that C: gets back a lot more space.  The machine was originally a Windows 8.1 box and I don't think that a return to "out of the box" state is ever going to be in the cards.

Thoughts?

Can you list the error code you are getting and the update you are trying to install?

Apologies I missed that, I still would like to know the Exact Error Code being received. 

Thanks.

Hello all.  At the moment, unless the client revives the pursuit, this issue is back-burnered.

 

I e-mailed him this morning to inquire as to whether he ever managed to get a clean DISM result and/or if the Anniversary Update successfully applied.  I have not heard anything back.  Since the machine is not mine nor in my hands nor was I there when the attempt to apply the AU failed, I can't produce the exact error code at this time.

 

I appreciate the offers of assistance and will follow-up if this comes back to life again just so the circle can be completed.

Well, this is as "full circle" as it's going to get.  I e-mailed my client to see if either a clean DISM and/or an Anniversary Update had worked.  He responded back that he had a coffee spill disaster and thinks he's killed his computer.  I suspect that he's probably just killed his keyboard.  However, he returns to Thailand in just a few weeks and is going to have this issue addressed after he returns there.  This is probably the best idea since the laptop was purchased there and has a dual keyboard that supports Thai characters.
