    Windows 10 1809 -> 1903 Upgrade failures


    I've been experiencing upgrade failures for PCs at my company since the official release of Windows 10 v1903. The error has persisted even after v1909 was released recently. Any PC on v1809 that we have will not successfully upgrade to v1903 or v1909. The upgrade often appears to slow down/freeze at about 85-87%. Leaving the PC on overnight to complete results in an upgrade that appears to work at first glance, but fails to log into Windows for the user, eventually resulting in an almost unresponsive black screen with cursor. This has occurred on each and every PC joined to my company's domain.


    A few facts:


    1. All local domain joined.

    2. All experience similar stalls in the install process.

    3. All appear to upgrade, but logging in fails after upgrade.


    I have attached a few files that intrepid Windows users might be able to decipher and help with. Thanks so much!

    Win 10 1809 to 1903 Failure And Odd Issue Found

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

    Similar there.
    You are missing an EFI partition too. Here's mine (1903) - note the 99Mb EFI partition:

    - noting the Recovery partition is NTFS - not sure where the idea in that thread about FAT32 comes from.

    Here are all the partitions - Disk Management omits the 16Mb one:

    In the thread I quoted- not the most straightforward- it seems one basic step taken was to
    a. Image 'C: '
    b. Clean install Windows
    c. Replace the new Windows partition by restoring it from the image created
    d. (Note when rebooting, this may sort itself out via automated repair, or need Startup repair to be run)

    If you search for
    msconfig boot empty
    or
    msconfig boot empty "Windows 10"
    you will find numerous references which may help.

  3. KB4023057 after upgrading Windows 10 from 1809 to 1903

    My 64-bit desktop computer running Windows 10 Home 1809 has been successfully upgraded to 1903.

    After the upgrade, when running "Programs and Features" from Control Panel, I noticed that "Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB4023057)" is still in the installed list.

    As far as I know, this "feature" does not apply to 1903, so :-

    1) Should the upgrade to 1903 have automatically uninstalled it?

    2) Should I uninstall it?

    Windows 10 1809 -> 1903 Upgrade failures

    Upgraded to 1903 but it still 1809

    Upgraded to version 1903 on my Acer laptop (which came with Windows 10 Home 1809). After everything completed and rebooted, I checked the version in Settings and it still shows version 1809, but the Updates display offers the next release 1909. I used another utility to check and it also displays 1809. So, I am not sure what to do next. Any suggestions please?
