  1. Update to 1909 Restore Stuck


    I attempted to install the update to 1909 but it failed and began a restore to the previous installed version which ran for several days. Subsequently I hard shutdown the system, but upon restart it continued to try to restore. I let it run several more days. Still stuck. Tried it again.


    Tried a hard reset of the system hoping to get to the boot options screen, but end up again trying to restore. Is there someway to break the cycle and perhaps force a boot from a USB flash drive to do a fresh install; I have a Media Creation Tool created drive ready to go?

    :)

  2. System restore got stuck

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I appreciate if you could answer few questions to narrow down to the issue.


    • What was the exact issue that you were facing that lead to perform restore?
    • Did you receive any error message, when the system restore got stuck?
    • Did you install any third party security application?

    Since the computer is being stuck, I suggest you to restart the computer and try to perform the restore again and check if it helps.

    I also suggest you to provide more information regarding the issue which led to perform system restore along with the make and model of the computer.

    Hope the information helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you.

    • Secondary drive not visible in disk manager

    Steps to replicate issue:

    Since updates can only be delayed for so long, an actual fix would be appreciated.

  4. Update to 1909 Restore Stuck

    Windows stuck on previous restoring loop

    Hi Mandy,

    When an update to a newer version of Windows 10 is not successfully installed the device will automatically rollback to the previous version. If the device is stuck in a loop of restoring the previous version of Windows, this could be caused by system files
    that got corrupted. For us to resolve your concern, kindly answer the questions below:

    • Were there any other changes made prior to the issue occurring?
    • Were there any error messages that showed up when you saw the restore loop?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you completed?

    We look forward to your response to our queries.
