Windows 1903 update failed with error code 0x8007000e

I'm wondering, after getting this error, can I just leave this alone and wait for the regular cumulative update? 

Hi Brenda

My name is Andre Da Costa; an Independent Consultant, Windows Insider MVP and Windows & Devices for IT MVP. I'm here to help you with your problem.

We are aware of reports from users experiencing problems installing the latest Feature Update, version 1903 which is in the process of rolling out.

A couple issues we are aware of that might block the upgrade include the following:

- You need to ensure you have 10 to 16 GBs of free space.
- If there is a SD card installed, uninstall it or disable it.
- Disconnect any usb drives.

You could block the update and wait a while before upgrading:

I at first had a problem with downloading the new windows 10 update of 1903. I ended up downloading it from windows 10 update assistant and didn't do the update from the check updates in settings. After doing that the new update downloaded no problem but it took about 8 hours or so to download and update altogether. I left the PC on overnight. So far it all seems fine.

Hi Andre,

I received a message yesterday and today that my PC cannot install this Windows 10 update: Feature update to Windows 10, version 1903. I never had a problem before having Windows 10 automatically install updates on my PC. Is this a valid update I received or a scam email?

I recently setup a Windows 8 PC for my wife and after one week my logon password automatically synced from my PC to my wife's PC. Could this have something to do with the update not being able to install? How can I have this Win 10 update install?

I received a reply to my post stating to read your article above. None of these apply to my Win 10 or PC. For some reason I cannot install. How can I update Win 10 1903?

Thank You,

Paul

Hello Andre, Can you please help me.

I tried using the "Fix Issues" option to install the latest Windows 10 Ver. 1903 update and received a message that the Intel RST version I have installed on my PC is not compatible and cannot install the Windows update. This is the message I read below:

Intel and Microsoft have found incompatibility issues with certain versions of the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) drivers and the Windows 10 May 2019 Update.  If your device has an Intel® RST driver version between 15.1.0.1002 and 15.5.2.1053 installed, it cannot install the May 2019 Update.

Versions 15.5.2.1054 or later are compatible, and a device that has these drivers installed can install the Windows 10 May 2019 Update. For affected devices, the recommended version is 15.9.6.1044.

How can I install the compatible version of the Intel RST software? Please help. 

Paul
