Hi all, I have a self built (Jan 18) desktop running a genuine licensed version W10 1709 Homex64 (OS build 16299.192). It has plenty of room left on 250 GB SSD. However, although it is running well, it just will not update to 1803 although MS Update always says that this update is available. But many attempts result in failure with several different fail codes although the last 5 or so attempts have the same fail code:
Feature update to Windows 10, version 1803 (11)
Last failed install attempt on 23/07/2018 - 0x80240034
Today I had a different message after the update failed:
A current driver on your PC may be better than the driver we're trying to install. We'll keep trying to install.
I have spent many hours trying to install the update including:
MS Update (always fails)
MS Update trouble-shooter (this update does not apply to your computer)
Update assistant (this update does not apply to your computer)
Downloading update from MS site (downloaded, and partially installed before message said rolling back to previous version)
Plus many fixes described on various MS forums.
It has however successfully update several 1709 quality updates during this time.
Strangely, I have an aging Toshiba laptop (500 GB HDD) upgraded from W7 a couple of years ago also on 1709 which also will not update to 1803.
Should I just go via the Media Creation Tool ISO route?
If so I will try it on the laptop first.
