Surface book 2 - Feature update to Windows 10, version 1803 - 0x80240034

Hi Microsoft,

Brand new Surface book 2 - letting it update with all the latest firmware/updates, etc. I'm having issues with a feature update - it never downloads, and if it does, tries to install, then fails. Over, and over, and over. See messages below:

Feature update to Windows 10, version 1803 (7)

Last failed install attempt on ‎20/‎09/‎2018 - 0x80240034

Please help. This is frustrating, and is using my precious data.



Hi Andy,

With these major upgrades, the most successful method is to upgrade from the Windows 10 ISO - you download the ISO and then perform an Offline Upgrade

Click this link:
to download the Media Creation Tool (Click on Download Tool Now), with that you can download the latest Windows 10 ISO (Select Create Installation Media for Another PC), then choose ISO

When the ISO file completes downloading

Disconnect from the Internet

Uninstall any 3rd party Anti-virus - this is a known issue with 1803

Then, double click it and then run Setup.exe to begin the upgrade . . .

Power to the Developer!
