Thank you for visiting Microsoft Community and providing us with the detailed description about the issue.
As per the description, I understand that you are experiencing issue with error code: Something happened 0x80072EE7-0x20000 after installation to media creation tools in Windows 10 on the system.
I certainly understand your concern and will try my best to help you.
I would suggest you to try the following methods and check if that helps.
To diagnose whether this issue occurs in “Safe Mode”, let’s reboot the computer in safe mode and check if the issue appears there as well.
Safe mode is a diagnostic mode for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. This helps us in identifying whether the issue is due to some third party programs conflict. The word Safe mode appear in the concern of your monitor to identify which windows mode you are using.
Follow the steps given below and check if that helps.
Type settings in search and click on Settings.
Click Update and recovery, and then tap or click Recovery.

Once your PC restarts, on the Choose an option screen, tap or click Troubleshoot.
If you don't see the Startup Settings option, tap or click advanced options.
Tap or click Startup Settings.
Tap or click Restart.
On the Startup Settings screen, choose the Safe Mode.
Sign in to your PC with a user account that has administrator rights.
If the issue does not appear in safe mode, place the computer in clean boot state and check if the issue reappears.
