Hello,
 
I've been having this problem for a few weeks now.
 
Windows will reboot to update the windows 10 anniversary update but an error always pops up and the updates cancels out and reverts to the old version. 
 
"Windows could not configure one or more system components. To install Windows, restart the computer and then restart the installation".
 
I've tried creating a separate usb for the upgrade using media creation tool but the same error still comes up. Delete the software distribution folder etc. 
 
May I ask if anyone encountered this problem and is there any fix for it?
 
Thanks!
 
Current windows version: Windows 10 (Build 10240)

Are all your updates (apart from that one) up to date?

 

Have you had that build of 10 on your machine for more than 30 days?

 

No card readers/cameras etc attached to the machine?

 

What av/security software?

 

Have you tried just clicking here?

I'm having similar issues . Tried disabling .NET and it still came up with same error. Is there some kind of log to see any errors? I'm on build 10240 and I've been on it since. I think for like over 6 months or 3 months the least. No anti-virus, no-card reader, updated all drivers, and downloaded Windows 10 Anniversary installer to no avail. Help please!

 Build 10240 is a long ago obsoleted Insider build.  If you're a registered Insider, you'll need to download a current version and do a clean install.  After that, you'll need to keep up to date as you agreed to do when becoming an insider.


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

I don't think I remember signing up for anything regarding being an insider. I know that I was desperate to download windows and did the force install Win 10 when I couldn't wait for the update to come out in waves from Win 7. So, I would have to back up all my files, create a disk with Media Creation tool and delete current partition and just Install from scratch? And what about my Product Key? I don't know what it is and if I upgrade, I'm screwed without it. Any help is appreciated, thanks!
