  1. Unable to install Feature Update 2004


    Gigabyte B450-something board
    Ryzen 7 1800x
    16Gigs RAM
    1TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus NvmE
    Gainward RTX 2070
    (Plus three other drives)



    Title says it mostly.

    I have tried running the 2004 Update some time (two months?) ago, however my entire rig crashed and took a few resets to stabilize and run 1909 again. Now just a few days ago, the PC got an upgrade with a new shiny 1000W PSU and a 1TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD in the M.2 Slot. The new drive got a fresh clean Windows 10 install, it's maybe a week old.

    Trying to run the update again tonight was met with the same error I had initially. The PC would "shut down" with the usual Updating screen, which would reach 100%, and the PC would restart and post, but Windows itself would directly go into the "Repair Windows" screen. It refuses to let me do a system restore, trying to repair it tells me it was unable to repair Windows, and in the end I had to hit reset on the chassis in order to make it boot back into Version 1909. Build 18363.1139.

    There aren't any error codes whatsoever. It just goes directly into the repair Windows screen and no matter which of the options I take (which aren't a clean reinstall), it just tells me "Can't do that, Dave".

    I checked for BIOS Updates, none available, latest installed. At this point I have no clue what is causing me issues and I'm hoping someone with more knowledge can help me figure this out.



    BUT! Here comes a thing: My settings page seems to have updated. I have the new fancy layout, however the "About" section tells me I'm still running the old version.

    Also one of the Laptops my partner and me own updated to 2004 without issues. The other one doesn't seem to have it available yet. Both Acer Aspire Nitro.



    Thanks in advance for the help!

  2. Disable installation of Feature Update 2004

    About 2 weeks ago, version 2004 showed up on the Updates list and automatically installed. Upon completion of the install, the computer was completely unusable: no application would load; those that started would hang and eventually (5 minutes) fail. To
    attempt to remove the update, I had to force a power off (mirrored drives really don't like that!) and then was finally able to use to Recovery under Updates to remove about 95% of the update. After the require restart and while checking what was or was not
    working, Updates (of course) reinstalled 2004. Repeat: Recovery and Remove 95% (95% of 95% = 90% Usable). Attempting to use MS questions area, the only suggestion was to Disable the Updates Service which, of course, means no further security or usability
    patches.

    All of that overly long explanation is by way of saying: I have attempted the only other option given here for removing 2004. At the moment, the Update Service is Disabled (PS: if you leave it at Manual, it will eventually start up and 2004 will commence
    its installation). So, the question: is there ANY way to disable the attempt by Update Service to install version 2004? I don't mean "install and wait for a couple of patches", I mean permanent tell Windows to NOT attempt to install 2004? My computer works
    just fine without the feature updates and does not work AT ALL *with* the updates. Prior versions and other patches allow for the update to be Hidden and ignored; Feature Update 2004 will install if the service is running and there appears to be no way to
    abort/hide/ignore the update.

    Any suggestions??

    Windows Show Hide not hiding 2004 feature update

    Show/Hide has always worked for me. Yesterday I had about 10 updates show. I want to install all BUT the 2004 Feature Update, so hid that in Show/Hide. It shows as hidden there, but when I check Windows Update again the next day, it is still listed. Normally, it would not be and all other updates would be. Now all are there and I do not yet care to install the feature update.

    Any ideas / suggestions?

    Thanks.

  4. Unable to install Feature Update 2004

    Feature Update Win 10 Pro 2004

    The Feature Update Win 10 2004 appears to have installed successfully on my computer.

    It is listed in Settings, System, About.

    However, the Update has wiped out all of my previous Windows Update, View Update History which is now blank.

    Moreover, the Feature Update Win 10 2004 itself is not listed in Settings, Update and Security, Windows Update, View Update History.

    Is this important?

    And if so, how can it be repaired?

    Thanks.
