  2. Windows 10 Feature Update 20H2 consistently fails with 0x80242016

    I am using Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Version 1809 and trying to update to Version 20H2.

    I keep getting 0x80242016 error.

    I was in previous version I got 0x80242016 error when trying to upgrade and so after extensive research tried

    Windows 10 Installation Media:

    1. Insert the Media (DVD/USB) in your PC and restart.
    2. Boot from the media.
    3. Select Repair Your Computer.
    Select Troubleshoot.

    1. Choose Command Prompt from the menu:
    Type in the command:
    Diskpart
    Type in the command:
    List disk (Note which disk is your Boot drive number mine is 0)
    Type in the command:
    Sel disk 0
    Type in the command:
    List vol (Note which volume is the EFI partition mine is 4)
    Type in the command:
    Sel vol 4
    Type in the command:
    assign letter=V:
    Type in the command:
    Exit
    Type in the command:
    V:
    After you have assigned a drive letter Using Diskpart You can format the EFI partition:
    Example: if you assigned a letter V to the partition the command would be:
    format V: /FS:FAT32
    Type in the command:
    bcdboot C:\windows /s V: /f UEFI

    This did not work so I wiped hard drive and reinstalled Windows 10.



    Now I have an issue that I cannot install Feature Updates. They keep failing to install with 0x80242016 error.
    Any ideas how to resolve issue?

    Thank you for all help given.

    Hi,

    You misunderstood me. Issue happened when Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Version 1809 was released and after getting 0x80242016 error I did what I stated in previous message. This did not work and I had to wipe drive and reinstall Windows 10 from start to current version at time of Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Version 1809.

    I now have a laptop with Windows 10 Pro Version 1809 and whenever I try to upgrade to Windows 10 20H2 consistently get 0x80242016 error.

    Hi,

    Yes I still need help.
