    1803 update stuck at %42


    The heavy load was probably what was happening to my update. When it started preparing the install to the last restart it took 2.75hrs to get back to my desktop, then for another 10" it threw three teaser screens up extolling the virtues of the new version before I could start using my machine again.

    Although for different reasons it reminded me of the GWX era of Win7 updates.

    I'm on a Lenovo laptop with dual graphics card. I didn't experience a single major Windows 10 update stucking after some time and 1803 is no exception.

    I have tried disconnecting USB devices, disabling anti-virus & firewall, clearing update cache, running SFC, DISM, WUA etc. but still it stucks at %42.

    Why every major update is problematic for me? I don't want to do a clean install again.

    :)

    Upgrade to 1803 fails at 42%

    I would wait until the 10th of April when the full ISO's will be released then try upgrading offline.

    If you still want to attempt the upgrade, try the following:

    Before carrying out this procedure, disconnect from the Internet. That means turning off Wi-Fi and disconnecting from a wired connection. If you don't, Windows 10 will indicate some files are in use and cannot be modified or the command will be non-responsive.
    Also, you should restart your computer after disconnecting from the Internet. The easiest way to do it is to enable Airplane mode from the Action Center - Windows key + A.

    Open Start, type: CMD

    Right click CMD

    Click Run as administrator

    Type each of the following then hit Enter

    taskkill /f /fi "SERVICES eq wuauserv" (Do this multiple times)

    net stop cryptSvc

    net stop bits

    net stop msiserver

    ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old

    rmdir C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore

    rmdir C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download

    When complete, hit Enter, then restart, then try updating again.

    If that does not work..

    1. Open Start, type: CMD

    Right click CMD

    Click Run as administrator

    Type each of the following then hit Enter

    Run these codes:

    Net Stop bits

    Net Stop wuauserv

    Net Stop appidsvc

    Net Stop cryptsvc

    Ren %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.bak

    Ren %systemroot%\system32\catroot2 catroot2.bak

    Net Start bits

    Net Start wuauserv

    Net Start appidsvc

    Net Start cryptsvc

    After running these commands, check if your issue is fixed.

    Hi,
    You've done everything but disable the graphics card that isn't native to the laptop, my thought is it falls under the criteria of attached devices like USB. And please excuse me if you purchased the laptop with dual cards, your system specs don't show that.

    What is the setup; Do you have integrated graphics with a separate card? Just disable the separate card and let the integrated run. Then run 1803.

    You can open the task manager and check the c: drive and internet connection sections in the performance tab to see if its actually doing anything.

    It might have been due to heavy load on Microsoft's servers yesterday. Have you tried again today?

    Hi there

    It does take a long time on some laptops
    servers shouldn't be a problem once the program starts installing as you've already got the update on HDD.

    Also make sure there is sufficient available space on HDD('s) as if there isn't you'll get the dreaded Update failed with that error code - can't remember it though.

    You need enough space for V.S.S and windows old (what the system tries to allocate rather than what is finally used).

    If it bombs out increase the windows partition size or make available space on other partitions / HDD's. You can decrease these after install / update success.

    Sometimes if it's stuck for a long time simply re-boot again -- you might have to go though that saga a few time before it finally works though.

    The most important thing is that there is sufficient free space on HDD's.
    To change partition sizes without losing data use either a Linux live distro with GPARTED or amy Windows bootable partition manager.

    GPARTED is quite simple -- and works from USB -- Partition magic or similar I believe can't run from a USB though (paid version will). GPARTED if you are uncomfortable with Linux runs also as a stand alone bootable program - download iso and create USB via Rufus. The Interface is no problem for windows users.

    Cheers
