How to Fix Windows 10 Creators Update Install Errors?

Issue: Hello, everyone. I have an issue with Windows 10 Creators Update. I’ve been trying to upgrade the system for many times, but I can only download the Creators Update. Its installation always fails at 60% or more. What could be the culprit?

Solved Answer

On April 11th, 2017, Microsoft started rolling out its Creators Update (a.k.a. Redstone 2 and V1703)[1] via the Windows Update. Just like the Anniversary Update, the Redstone 2 will be prepared for Windows 10 users in phases. When the device becomes eligible for the update rollout, the user will be asked to initiate necessary changes in the privacy settings.

Besides, you will be able to the convenient time from the update, snooze the pending updates[2] or expand the active hours. In addition to automatic Creators Update rollout, the most impatient people can install it manually using Windows Update Assistant or Media Creation Tool.

Unfortunately, but just like any other Windows 10 update, the installation of Creators Update often fails. The following issues have been reported by Windows 10 users:

  • Creators Update is missing in Windows Update.
  • The update is downloaded successfully, but the installation fails at some point.
  • The Creators Update download fails.
  • Even if the update is successfully installed, after rebooting the system the device is still on the Anniversary Update.
  • The installation of Creators Update fails with an error code 0xc1900107.
