I am currently running Windows 10 14257 alongside with Arch Linux. However, like all the updates attempts before, I cannot easily update Windows 10 to the newest version because for some reason I would run into these two situations:
- 1) Black Screen (of death?) > Upon rebooting after Windows finishes configuring my system for the update, my laptop would reboot and get to GRUB. I then boot to Windows Loader (sda2) and see a black screen. If I leave PC like that for a full day, I still see the black screen. I have to then forcibly shutdown my laptop and reboot. This time, Windows would say "Restoring Previous Build" and I am back to square one.
- 2) Nothing Happens (started happening recently but rarely) > Upon reboot after Windows finishes configuring my system, there is the reboot to GRUB. I boot to WIndows and nothing happen. I get to the Lock Screen and can sign in as usual but would still be back at my old build; no update happen.
I cleared the WIndows Update cache, delete Windows.~BT folder and restarted Windows Update; however, I run into either one of the two problem above.
Previous, I have to restore Windows' Bootloader via a recovery USB and Windows then would allow me to update. However, Windows' 10 Bootloader does not detect Arch Linux so I cannot use Windows' Bootloader (that is a different problem for another posting).
Is there a way for me to update Windows without restoring Windows' Bootloader then update Windows?
