    Windows 10 1909 Update Fails in First Boot with Critical Process Dies after performing 29%...


    All

    I am runing Windows 10 Build 17763 64 bit on ASUS mb. System has 24GB of storage with C drive having 1.4 TB of free space. When attempting the update via the UPDATE Assistant, the update fails with an error code of 0x80070017. Downloaded the update to a USB Flash drive via the Media Tool and executed SETUP. This approach allowd the updates to load, but fails in FIRST BOOT after reaching 29% of the upgrade. The Error code is 0xC1900101 - 0x30017 CRITICAL PROCESS DIED. At that point the system reboots, attempting to restart the installation. This fails, then the system restores the origianl configuration.

    Following suggestions for this error, I disconnected all USB devices with the exception of the KB and Mouse, performed a "Clean BOOT" turned off all AV products, renamed the Software Distribution Folder and catroot2 folder and created a registry element in HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\Windows\CurrentVsion\WindowsUpdate OsUpgrade with a value of 1

    I then reran the installation from the USB flash drive with the same result. I also ran the recommended scans of the distribution files.


    I have the system set with Storage Spaces as well as a variety of MS and non MS products installed, so performing a Clean Install, is not an option.


    What other actions can I take?

    :)

  2. critical process died in windows 10

    Hi,

    To resolve your concern about the critical process died in Windows 10, we suggest that you do the system diagnostics. Here are the steps:

    • Boot your computer and continuously press ESC key on your keyboard until you reach the
      Startup menu.
    • From the Startup menu, press F2 (or whatever the designated key is) for
      System Diagnostics.
    • Use arrow keys to navigate and choose Hard Drive Check.
    • Choose Extensive Check.
    Allow it to finish then boot your computer as normal.

    Let us know how it goes.

    I have attached a screenshot of the event viewer. I have scrolled to the bottom to where it first booted up.

    Ive downloaded the software you sent the link for but I'm not sure how to use it as nothing shows up when I load it.
