Windows 10 Pro 2004 Update Fails to Install

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

We are trying to update a 1st gen Threadripper system to Windows 10 Pro 2004 from 1903. We used both Windows Update and the Windows Upgrade Assistant. Windows Update threw up an error, but we remember what it was (it was some hex code), and now it says we are up to date but the 2004 update has not been applied. The Upgrade Assistant doesn't throw an error. Using the Upgrade Assistant the follow keeps happening...

 

  • It downloads the update
  • Applies the update (or so it says)
  • It reboots Windows and there are no update messages
  • The computer quickly reboots, flashes the Windows logo then quickly reboots again
  • The second reboot the spinning dots at the Windows logo take a while then it loads to the desktop
  • There are no messages and checking System shows Windows is still on the old version

We've tried clearing the downloaded updates cache, uninstalling and reinstalling Upgrade Assistant, running Disk Cleanup in admin mode, checked for problems with CC Cleaner, and made sure all services required by Windows Update were running. Our system was OCed, after the first attempt failed we disabled the overclocking but that didn't seem to make a difference. Any assistance that you can give would be very appreciated. 

 

Here's our specs, maybe this info will help...

This update is a buggy mess of crap. Microsoft is only allowing it to be installed on select systems as there are compatibility issues. Did Windows update offer the update or did you try to force it? I know on my Ryzen gaming machine it says its not ready for my system yet.

It was offered by Windows Update, tried to do it on its own the first time and failed. I have 2004 installed on a Ryzen 5 3600, so I don't know why it isn't working on the Threadripper machine. If we can't fix this we're going to have to do a reinstallation and that will be very inconvenient because the machine was configured as a server and it takes a long time to set things back up again.
