Windows 10 Creator update fails with code 0xc1900208

I own an HP Pavilion Notebook, running Windows 10 release 1607. This laptop has an AMD A10-8700P processor, 8 GB of RAM, and I installed a BIOS update rev 43 earlier. I started the Creator update installation on my own, downloading the windows 10 upgrade tool. The process runs along fine, downloading and verifying and installing, to the point where it asks to review my security settings, and then I see the message about clicking OK and more background stuff to do before the update is applied. Then I get the screen that says something went wrong, and the error code 0xC1900208 (no other code). I have tried a couple of things on the community board, like stopping the update service, renaming folders, and restarting the service. But I still get the same error. Any help would be appreciated. Sign me frustrated in North Las Vegas....

The AMD A10-8700P Carrizo processor is not compatible with Windows 10 at this time. Microsoft is working with AMD on a fix that will be released a specified time. At this time, I would refrain from upgrading and periodically check HP's website to find out about compatibility

You should also follow Microsoft's advisory and upgrade only when offered through Windows Update:
