    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 We couldn't complete the update reverting changes :) Best regards.


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

    Hi,



    I suggest you to run the Windows Update troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with Update. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if the issue is with your Windows update.

    Refer these steps:


    • Press Windows key +X, select
      Control panel.

    • Change the view by option on the
      top right to Large icons.

    • Click on troubleshooting and click on the
      view all option on the left panel.

    • Run the Windows Update troubleshooter.


    Keep us posted on this issue so that we can assist you better.

    "We couldn`t create a new partition or locate an existing one."

    Try this:

    Before you get to that message, press SHIFT + F10 to open a command prompt.

    Run diskpart.
    At the diskpart prompt, run these commands:

    list disk

    At this point you should see the SSD as disk 0. If it has another disk number, use that number rather than "0" in the next command.

    select disk 0
    clean
    exit (to exit from diskpart)
    exit (to exit from the command prompt)

    That should clear the contents of the disk. The entire disk space should then show up in Windows setup as "Unallocated Space" as in the screenshot below.
