  2. HELP NEEDED FAST! I cant update my windows error code 0x80071a2d

    So i am trying to update my laptop, but keep getting the "We couldn’t complete the updates, Undoing changes" error. And later when looking at the error code it says "0x80071a2d".
    So the update is a Cumulative Update for Windows 10 (KB4503327), and for some reason, I can't update it.
    I have tried to update it via cmd and manually through the installation cab file.

    P.S. The laptop is brand new.

    BIOS error codes

    So I have motherboard with installed small LED screen, which presents BIOS error codes.

    Where can I find a list of those errors. And I don't mean beep codes, but the "number" codes.

    Ex after installing sound card, the motherboard startup fails with the code 15.

    Example picture of code is here.
