I've tried several times to install the Windows 10 November update. Each time the install gets to a progress screen showing 85% complete overall and 40% complete on configuration settings. Then it hangs. I've left it hanging for 7 up to hours with no change, so I'm not being impatient.
When it hangs the only way to regain control is by powering down the laptop. On boot up Windows tries briefly to recover the upgrade and then announces that the previous version of Windows 10 is being restored. Thankfully that works, but the November update is going to keep on failing and one time I won't get my laptop back in working order.
Initially I was trying to apply the update using Windows update. Then a response on this community suggested using the Windows 10_1511 Media Creation Tool. That froze at exactly the same point (85% overall, 40% configuration settings) but when I rebooted and Windows restored my previous version of Windows 10 I did get an error message:
We couldn't install Windows 10 ........... 0xC1900101 - 0x4000D The installation failed at the SECOND_BOOT phase with an error during MIGRATE_DATA operation.
I looked up solutions for that error message and found the following procedure, which I followed:
- Uninstall your Antivirus utility before attempting the upgrade.
- Disable General USB Devices (example - Smart Card Reader).
- Do a clean boot
- Try again.
I did all that, but once again the upgrade froze at 85% overall, 40% configuration settings and at at the end of the inevitable restore to my previous version of Windows 10 I got exactly the same error message as before.
Can anyone help me move forward with this problem?
