I am getting better at this #WaaH

Windows Update was stuck at 95 percent. But I am getting better at this. This time it only took two hours to solve. Next time I will be down to 30 minutes. #WaaH #WindowsAsAHobby

Note to self about what happened:

  1. Automatic installation fails and is stuck at 95%.
  2. Download update and try manual install. Also fails.
  3. Reboot, net stop wuauserv, delete everything from c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download
  4. DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
  5. Sfc /ScanNow
  6. Reboot, manual install from download in step 2 succeeds.
  7. Reboot, automatic install launches and finds the update complete.

Hmm. Ich hatte null Probleme. Woran sowas wohl immer liegt. Scheint dann ja eher zufällig um sich zu greifen.

15 minutes download & Install on my Lenovo T460s.

As it should. The problem is that once it gets stuck, you have to fix it. It does not fix itself.

Du bist aber geduldig und hartnäckig. Als meine Windows VM auf dem Mac (noch Windows 7) bei den updates ähnlich zickig wurden habe ich kurzerhand die Updateversorgung durch MS komplett abgedreht. Das Risiko ist bei mir überschaubar, weil die VM nur noch selten genutzt wird - sicher keine Option für den täglichen Einsatz.

Ich versuche jeden Tag noch was dazu zu lernen. Und ja, ich bin geduldig und hartnäckig.

it does that on purpose to you :D
ernsthaft, ich habe keine Ahnung, warum es dich jedes Mal wieder erwischt.
Ich hatte das exakt 1 Mal, beim Upgrade von 8.1 auf 10 am Heimrechner inklusive der obligatorischen Bereinigung, da hatte ich aber irgendwas selber versemmelt, weil ich unternrochen habe und im Büro hing der Rechner einmal bei 95% fest, da hat ein reboot gereicht.
So häufig wie das aber augenscheinlich vorkommt, muss doch was systemisches dahinter stecken und ich verstehe nicht, warum es den Fehler noch gibt, er ist ja nicht neu.

Love Windows 10, but can't believe this is still happening

Had a similar problem updating the laptops for my inlaws to build 14393 (10v1607), did not know this might solve it, thanks for the report!

Fixed it by using the Media Creation Tool to load a USB-stick and ran setup from that. Still had to unplug the USB printer from one of the laptops to allow installation to finish, and had to reboot that laptop too. Previously, that would prompt the installer to revert, but the combination of a separate setup and the unplugged printer allowed setup to finish.

On my home computer, I also loaded 1607 much later that the issu date,
