Windows 2004 upgrade

Recommended Posts

Just asking on here, as there are so many knowledgable people!!

My Windows 10 update section is informing me that the 2004 update is now OK for my PC.

I tried yesterday 3 times to update ( at a cost of about 3 gigs each time). Each time it downloads, goes as far as installing then restarts, then NOTHING.

System info remains at v1909.

I don't need to update but it would be nice.

Any ideas what could be preventing the update?

Hi IanHArrison,

try the following options.

1) Try the updatepackage: 2020-08 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 2004 for x86-based Systems (KB4566782)

2) WindowsUpdateDiagnostic: Microsoft´s repairtool

3) Microsoft´s MediaCreation Tool 2004. That worked for me after houers of fiddeling arround with other sugested methods. I do not know if this link works Link for CreationTool but in german language. Just download the tool from microsoft, accept the licence terms and let it do the magic. The exact file name is: "MediaCreationTool2004.exe" (google it).

If it works please let others and me know what worked. After the update is done try the new "hardware accelerated GPU planning" funktion in 2004! Click on 'Search' on the taskbar and type “Graphics Settings”. Click on the first option to open Windows Graphics settings. Click the toggle under “Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling” to enable the feature. Improved the performance of MSFS immensly on my system. Helped especially to negate microstutters when panning the few with TrackIR.

Happy flying. 🙂

In reply. Thanks for the tips.

1) Says package is not cpmpatible with my PC,

2) Cannot find anything wrong.

3) Downloads, installs, reboots but Windows is still at v1909.

So nothing works, so far.

Check all your device drivers are up to date this could cause a problem, some users think if it`s not broke don`t update that can come back to bite you.

Just to let you know that I have just completed my 15 th attempt (having tried all the methods so far suggested) and every one has failed.

I have now wasted about 40 gb of data to no avail. 

Tried normal update, Safe mode, iso file, removing all anti virus and anything I could find on the Internet.

Everything goes right through to the last stages (Installing........) and seems to almost finish and then stops and rolls back.

The iso seems to complete, gives no message but then the version stays the same at 1909.

I am giving up.

Ian

There is only an automated Help link, which doesn't help.

Quick update. Three chats with "Agents" resulted in no progress. Each one had their own solution but in the end, the result was the same: at the end of the update process, it either undid the changes or finished but the version remained at 1909.

Maybe the only thing left is to remove Windows completely and install as a fresh OS. That would lose everything though and would probably require re-installing every program.

Don't know that I could face that.😒

Ian,

Managing many (~300) desktops running 1909 and 2004, I have learned that every update before 2004 must be run first. Attempt to do a check for updates and be absolutely sure that you have run every update. Try that first and let us know.

Best of luck...

Chris

OK done all that, all updates confirmed. Latest thing I tried was to physically disconnect all SSDs and HDs (except the m2 SSD, too awkward to get at). Then ran in clean boot mode with no USB items attached. No luck.

Then tried the same with an iso. All that happened was it completed after about an hour or so but WINver stayed on 1909.

This is now over 20 attempts,😭

Strange indeed.

My laptop just told me it needed a reboot, & there it was, OS build 19041.508

Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.31.0

Would this be the current latest version?
