  1. Windows 10 20H2 Fails to Install on 1909 Machine


    I have attempted to update my wife's laptop from Windows 10 1909 to 20H2. It gets most of the way but fails with a sad blue screen with a giant sad face on it, :.


    It is an older Dell laptop and I suspect that a driver is giving me grief. Is there a way to tell after the failed install why the install failed? If I can find that a particular driver is the problem, I can then uninstall it before the update and then try the install again.


    Thanks,


    Mike

    :)

    Windows 10 fails to update


    When you finish testing the Avast suggestion, make sure that you restart your machine.

    Then if the issue persists, please return to the trouble shooting list in post# 89

    I think there are three steps that remain; the WU troubleshooter, reset WU components, and manual WU reset.
