Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Corrupt

Windows 10 automatically downloaded and attempted to install the Fall Creators Update, however it blue screened during the update after rebooting. Specifically, it got stuck at 15% for about 5 minutes, then immediately jumped to 28%, then immediately rebooted, and upon rebooting it blue screened. Windows was eventually able to recover through automatic system restore after several more failed attempts to reboot.

However, now Windows keeps wanting to install the same broken update. I tried it again a second time, just to be sure, and same result: upon rebooting to install the update, Windows blue screened again, starting the whole thing over again.

I can't turn off or restart my computer now, because it will just try to install the update again and blue screen again. I tried a sfc /scannow but there were no integrity violations.

How do I fix this?

Hi,

There may be few reasons why you are getting the blue screen error while installing the new Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. You may consider the following troubleshooting suggestions to resolve this issue:

  1. Perform a clean boot. To do this you will be starting your Windows computer with a minimal set of drivers. For more information about this, kindly click this link.
  2. While on the clean boot state, run the Windows Update Troubleshooter. This is a helpful tool in fixing issues while updating your Windows. Click this to access the troubleshooter.
  3. After that, you may run the automatic update once again.

If the issue persists after doing the above-mentioned steps, kindly download the Fall Creators Update manually using the Media Creation Tool. It would also help us if you could provide the error message which you are getting upon installing the update.

Post here the result for us to help you further.

Regards.

no problems here everyone just remember patience is the essence when updating it took the better part of 6 hrs to download and then install for me, it may hang for up to whatever minutes put just be patient ,it's a good idea to shut your power settings to never shut down so update can do its thing -PATIENCE IS THE WORD GUYS .

I tried everything you said. Did a clean boot. Ran the troubleshooter. Even went so far as to uninstall my anti-virus and update or reinstall all my system drivers to no avail. 

Tried the Media Creation Tool as well. 

Same result. The post reboot install gets stuck at 15-16% for a couple of minutes, then jumps to 28% and then reboots. And then upon rebooting, blue screens.

The blue screen error I'm getting is SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED.

After trying to install via the Media Creation Tool, upon being restored Windows 10 Setup reported an error this time:

"0xC1900101 - 0x30017

The installation failed in the FIRST_BOOT phase with an error during BOOT operation" 

I'm at my wit's end here. 

If it helps, here are my system specs:

AMD Ryzen 5 1600

Gigabyte GA-AB350-Gaming 3

16GB PC-3200 RAM

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti

Everything was fine before the Fall Creators Update. And goes back to being fine after Windows restores itself to before it tried to install the update.

I have the same problem with the new Surface Pro (5).

I've tried Windows Update, than Media Creation Tool (ISO), with and without Antivirus, Internet and so on.

Still same errorcode like the guy above.
