    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Jan 12 update KB4598242 locks up at update complete 100% :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.

  3. Windows 10 "Couldn't complete updates"

    This hasn't helped.

    I did have some problems with step 3 and not being allowed to rename folders though I managed to work through that.

    Windows still goes through the update process, gets to 100% installed updates and then says "we couldn't complete updates, undoing changes".

    I tried both the steps listed and the Full Reset Windows updates link.

    Jan 12 update KB4598242 locks up at update complete 100%

    Windows 10 Update hangs on startup, saying 100% completed

    I have a new Fujitsu Lifebook series notebook, bought just about 2 months ago. I have only booted it roughly 10 times to install some basics (virus protection, and a couple of applications I'm going to need).

    During my last session, I did not install anything, but I triggered Windows Update from the start menu to ensure all the latest updates are installed.

    Unfortunately, Windows now hangs at a blue loading screen with a message like "Running updates, 100% complete, do not turn off the computer".

    After this had been shown for some hours, I decided to do some troubleshooting, and, based on the suggestions in the numerous forum threads found online about Windows 10 update issues, I rebooted several times. However, nothing helped:

    • Forced booting into the repair UI, then opened system recovery => the UI tells me I don't have any restore points.
    • Forced booting into the repair UI, then chose the option to boot into safe mode => stuck at the "100% complete" screen.
    • Forced booting into the repair UI, then chose to boot from a disk (with the recovery DVD provided by Fujitsu inserted) => stuck at the "100% complete" screen.
    • Forced booting into the repair UI, changed UEFI settings to always attempt booting from a disk first, then rebooted (with the recovery DVD provided by Fujitsu inserted) => stuck at the "100% complete" screen.

    How do I get past that "100% complete" screen, in order to get to a point where I can interact with the system to analyze and fix the problem?

    Thanks for any suggestions!
