  1. cannot update to 1903 - windows undoing changes


    rebuilt my laptop yesterday using Macrium

    the last build I had made was in January this year therefore need to update software and windows updates.

    System has updated to 1803

    states there is an update for 1903 - download this

    system reboots - starts to install the update

    THEN - reboots and says "Undoing changes made to your computer"

    Window Update Undoing changes made to your computer issue

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    In order to help you with the appropriate troubleshooting steps, pleas reply with the details requested below:



    • Do you receive any error message after Windows update?
    • May I know after which update do you see this message?
    • When you say, “this message appear about half and hour" does the computer boot to the desktop?
    • What is the make and model of the computer?


    If the computer doesn’t boot to the Desktop, I would suggest you to refer the suggestions provided by DaveM121 replied on April 7, 2019 in the thread

    'Undoing changes made to your computer' in Windows 10
    .



    If you are able to boot the computer to the Desktop, I would suggest you to run the

    Windows Update Troubleshooter
    and see if that helps.



    If the issue persists, I would suggest you to reset Windows Update components. Kindly refer the article by Sumit on

    How to:Reset Windows update components in Windows
    .



    You may also want to refer the steps mentioned in the article
    Troubleshoot problems updating Windows 10
    .



    Note: While performing chkdsk on the hard drive if any bad sectors are found on the hard drive when chkdsk tries to repair that sector if any data available on that might be lost. Also, the last step in the article
    talks about Clean installation, please do not perform a clean installation of Windows.




    Let us know the results, we will be glad to help you.



    Regards,
