Upgrading from 11099 to 14251 boots into recovery mode

When upgrading from 1099 to 14251 the update begins installing then reboots into recovery mode with no option to simply upgrade like it has previous builds. I simply have too much stuff installed to reset my system and if that's the only recourse I'll just drop out of the Insider program and go back to Threshold 2.

Followed the directions and it didn't help.

The Windows Update part of it with downloading and preinstalling seems to work OK, but on reboot to actually install the update (with the big circle) it instead goes into recovery mode.

I ended up doing a reinstall back to Threshold 2. It also managed to fix a few other minor problems I've been having in the process.

Encounter the same issue too, from 11102 to 14251.

The update simply boots into recovery mode instead of upgrading.

Has any new driver or software been installed lately?

If these pc are booting into recovery, its possible that each pc has OS that must be fixed before installation takes place.

Have you run the Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tools.
1. Open an elevated command prompt. Press WinKey + X, click Command Prompt (Admin).
2. Type the following command, and then press Enter. It may take several minutes for the command operation to be completed.
dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth
3. After you get message “The operation completed successfully” type second command and press enter. It will take some time to finish.
dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

Both of these processes run for sometime. Let them finish and reboot after each is complete.

"I simply have too much stuff installed to reset my system" This maybe a clue as we were advised by MS when using beta software we need to do a backup of our system, and we shouldn't use Preview software as our main system as it may crash, not load, delete files. ect's, this is the reason for the Insider program is to test and report problems before releasing to the public.

Gee, thanks for blaming me for someone else causing a problem.

Not blaming you just pointing out guide lines that MS has posted about using beta software, I have been on here for over a year and have found that a lot of problems are because of 3rd party apps/programs that people have install on a test system, the purpose for the Preview is to test the software and when a problem occurs report it and see if we on here can help fix it, many times a simple fix came by way of removing a added 3rd party software.

As someone who is also having this upgrade from 11102 to 14251 failing at the same point - with a lightly loaded system - I have to say that I disagree with your comments!

The whole purpose of beta testing is to use the releases as if they were the live OS and install software and programs that one would normally use in real life.

YES one should back up frequently and expect a degree of failure with both the releases and 3rd party products but that's the whole point of testing! How can MS and 3rd parties correct their products?

The fact that some people put a lot of effort and software into a release shows that they are trying to explore the full features of the insider program.
