Trouble updating to latest Windows 10 version

I have tried to update my MSI laptop to the latest version of Windows 10. It would download, restart and indicates that it is installing the update.

Then the laptop would restart and it would continue to install until 30% completion. It would restart again and then it would hang whilst displaying the MSI logo.

I left it once for a full 24 hours and when I came back it was still just displaying the MSO logo.

I am at my wits end because it eats my my data.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Griffen,
I am Sumit, an Independent Advisor and a 3 year Windows Insider MVP here to help.

I assume when you restart, it does an undo of the update.
Let us check the Installation log to find why the update failed. Please share the following logs:

The Panther logs. Files named Setupact.log and Setuperr.log from the following path C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\Panther

The Rollback logs: These usually are created if Windows Update rolls back. Files named Setupact.log and Setuperr.log from the following path C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\Rollback

[Only if the error code is 0xC1900101-0x30018] The Device Install Log from C:/$Windows.~bt\Sources\Rollback\setupapi\setupapi.dev.log

To upload files here, see the following article. You must copy the logs to the desktop first and then upload.

As the log size might be large consider zipping everything before uploading.

I hope that it help you in order to establish the problem.

Hi Griffen,

You did that correctly, but the Setupact.log was missing :)

Let me make this easy.

Right-click Start and choose Run.

Paste the following:
C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\Panther

Press Enter.

Drag the files named Setupact.log and Setuperr.log to the desktop. Press continue.

Share the files as you did the #3 file.

Good day.

I have done everything as you have explained.

But still I could not complete the update.

I have tried twice and I include the two screen grabs of the messages.
