    Win 10 1709 upgrade to 1803 fails - no boot info in msconfig/boot tab


    I am trying to upgrade Windows 10 N Enterprise 1709 to 1803 (or latest)..
    It fails saying "we can't tell if your PC is ready to continue installing Windows 10."
    This is with the 1803 Enterprise N ISO run from windows or from the updaterapp ,,,
    One thing I noticed was that when I go to msconfig .. boot tab there is NO info..
    If I run
    C:\Windows\system32>bcdedit /enum
    The boot configuration data store could not be opened.
    The volume for a file has been externally altered so that the opened file is no longer valid.

    I have run sfc and DISM all clean...

    I think some registry settings or something that is needed around the boot info is missing.

    EasyBCD
    says the BCD could not be opened... the volume for the file has been externally altered so that the external file is no longer valid.

    I think this is the source of the update failing..

    Any ideas?

    -Ken

    No listing under MSConfig Boot tab / not sure what to do


    I recently upgraded my SSD from a 500 GB drive to a 1 TB drive. I cloned the drive with Arocnis True Image 2016. It seemed to work, but then it wouldn't boot up. I followed some instructions I found on another forum about how to repair the bcd (booting up using the Windows 10 USB stick and going into the command prompt and running several commands), and that worked. The computer now boots up. However, I have now noticed that there is no listing under the MSConfig boot tab. Also, I don't know if System Restore is working - under C:, it says (Missing). See attached screenshots. I am not sure what to do now. I need to boot into Safe Mode, but I can't select Safe Mode in MSConfig because there is nothing listed under the Boot tab. It seems likely that whatever I did at the command prompt has messed things up. Anyone have any idea how I would fix this?

    Win 10 1709 upgrade to 1803 fails - no boot info in msconfig/boot tab

    No listing under MSConfig Boot tab / not sure what to do


    I was unable to convert the system reserved partition into FAT32. I could not figure out how. I found instructions on how to convert FAT32 to NTFS, but not the other way around. Am I dead in the water without being able to do this? Would I need to format the drive and do a fresh install of Windows 10 in order to make that partition be FAT32?

    I actually had a USB stick with Macrium on it already, so I went ahead and booted up with it, just to see what would happen. Here is a screenshot.

    Note: the D drive is a secondary internal drive, but I never boot from it.

    I clicked on Recovery, and was able to select the C drive in regards to where Windows was installed. However, when it asked me what partition the computer should boot from, it only listed my D drive.

    Also, when I was in BIOS, I noticed that there is now another Windows Boot Manager listing. It looks slightly different than the other five that were already there, because it actually lists the name of the drive in parentheses.

    I'm at a loss as to what to do now. Can you recommend a way to convert my NTFS partition into FAT32?
