Update to Windows 10 Insider Preview 16179.1000 - Error 0x80070005

Question: Update to Windows 10 Insider Preview 16179.1000 - Error 0x80070005

Whilst attempting to update from build 16176 to 16179 it fails with error Windows 10 Insider Preview 16179.1000 (rs_prerelease) - Error 0x80070005

Finds this update and downloads a KB then starts to install 16179 but quickly stops with this error. I've tried stopping all non MS services and startup programs and rebooting but it still fails. I've also followed numerous different suggestions which got extremely complicated but had no effect.

DISM restorehealth can't find the files and I don't have an ESD/ISO for build 16176

I tried to reset my windows but it only offers a total reinstall losing my software and settings which will be a PIA to rebuild.

I could wait for the next insider release and see if MS have fixed it or is it a problem on my particular PC?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have read there is a problem with one of the "Insider Updates" and those with an AMD Processor. I checked and I am in the process of receiving the above mentioned update (presently 64%).
In the past I have had a problem with an Insider Update clearing my hard drive and had to do a major reinstall of Windows. Please tell me this update is ok for those of us with AMD Processors

HI Guys
How can I roll back from Windows 10 Insider Preview 17017.1000 (rs_prerelease) to the current stable version when i do not have Windows.old.

THis current release is a nightmare BSOD & GSOD i am only on slow release as well.
So is it possible to do without a fresh install; I want to keep all my apps files and settings.

Answer:Can i Roll Back from Windows 10 Insider Preview 17017.1000

No, alas.

Possibilities:
1. Restore your PC using a previously created disk image. We constantly urge people to use disk imaging routinely E.g. Macrium Reflect (free). That's especially relevant to people taking risks with what are effectively trial builds.
2. Image what you have. Clean install a stable build. Buy a licence for the appropriate Laplink or Easeus product. Using that and your image you can automatically reinstall most of your programs and recreate settings etc.
(One-off license)

You would need to work out how much your time is worth, given the number of reinstalls and configuration, vs the license fee and a shorter task.

Hello, I've been trying for hours to get my HTC One M8 to run the Windows 10 preview, but I'm having some issues.
- As most people have suggested, I've hard reset my phone, not used a backup, then installed the insider preview and signed up for fast ring (I hear the newest build is great).
- Once I've done this and the phone has restarted and everything, I go to check for updates and.... nothing. Says my device is up to date.
- Tried resetting (twice), using the WP recovery tool, and still no updates come around.
Any suggestions? Could this have anything to do with my carrier (Verizon)? Am I out of luck? Thanks in advance.

Answer:Upgrading One M8 for Windows from 8.1 Update 2 to W10M Insider Preview?

I have an HTC One M8 running 10586.218 that my son is using (left IOS and likes W10M) and it runs very good on that phone.
You will not get an upgrade using the fast ring on the HTC, that is just for "supported" devices. You can get the very good 10586.218 release using "Insider Release" not "slow" or "fast" though. Not sure if "production" ring will get you anything either.

Hello all,

Real quick, I'm having an issue where I try to update from Build 15031.rs2_release.170204-1546 to the next rs2_release available via Windows Update. The update downloads, does the pre-install, boots me into the traditional blue screen of updating, finishes, then reboots me to get back into the OS. At this juncture, I am at a blue flag and white dot circle, which has stopped spinning (it spins for approx .75 seconds) and halts, machine stays in this state ad infinitum. I can reboot it, at which point it goes back to the same state. If i shut down, then power back up instead (cold boot), the machine reverts the upgrade and goes back to the previous build and everything is honkey dorey.

Thing 1) I do not have a wireless USB mouse/dongle. Please don't recommend I remove it as one does not exist.
Thing 2) I have removed two possible culprits (Creative SoundBlaster Z card, Asus Wireless-N card). No change.
Thing 3) I have unplugged all video (except 1 Display Port), all USB connections, and the Ethernet cable. No change.
Thing 4) I even went so far as to disconnect my NZXT water cooler USB connector from the motherboard header and reboot. No change.

Most posts I see, it's a "Oh, your wireless usb mouse is causing issues" or, "the PC is having issues discovering USB devices during it's boot process, disconnect them". Well, I've done it, and it's still busted. This has happened with /every/ developer preview update since Win 10 was release. The first... Read more

Answer:Windows 10 Insider Preview 14393 - Error 0x80240031

Error 0x80240031
This error occurs when the Windows upgrade file is in the wrong format.

Resolution

Download the Windows 10 ISO, and then upgrade to Windows 10 again.
If you're an MSDN subscriber, download the Windows 10 ISO from the MSDN subscription site.If you're not an MSDN subscriber or aren't sure if you are, create the Windows 10 ISO manually by using the media creation tool. When you run the tool, select the Create installation media for another PC option.



https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3107983

Being a preview you will need to create your own ISO though:

From an admin command prompt
[Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
chkdsk C: /F
Your PC will need to restart.
Make sure the result is clear or fixed- else do not proceed.
Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:

Then re-register apps:

Hi Everyone

Apologies for not including any Log files at this stage, but I would appreciate your thoughts on the following:

I've just installed Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium on a new SSD for my aged Acer Aspire 5920G. Following installation, many updates, including SP1 were automatically added through Windows update.
I then came to Activating, and when it was refused, suddenly realised and remembered (after all these years) that I had in fact purchased a retail version of the Upgrade, and had originally installed it over the top of Vista.

After searching Seven Forums I found and used the work-around binary file, provided on these forums for such a situation. With this I successfully Activated.

After continuing to install s/w and generally set things up, I realised that Windows update was no longer running. I manually set it going, and it has just continued to search for updates for hours without anything else happening. Further investigation using the MS Fixit tool revealed the Error code 0x8007005, (Access Denied, as I've since found out).

I've tried every fix I can find, including SFC Scannow and SubInAcl, without any joy.

Am I correct to assume this has been caused by my clean install of an upgrade version? Can anyone suggest a remedy without me having to start again with a new full copy of Windows 7?

Thanks for any thoughts/suggestions.

When I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 Pro my Win 10 was activated. I decided to stay on the Insider Preview and today was upgraded to version 10525. After the upgrade, I noticed the Windows Watermark showing this as an Evaluation Copy and no longer have activated copy, but a Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview Copy. Does anyone know why I went through the update farce if you lose it by staying in the Insider Preview.

My bad. Just rechecked and does show it's activated.

Answer:Insider Preview Update to 10525

I have heard that the roll back works good if you want to go back to the rtm. I have not done that yet but am thinking on trying soon. I do have a test machine ready. The good thing seems to be that the activation goes forward and back also. Good luck to you

Basically when I tried to do a windows update, it downloaded about 5 other updates and installed them, but 2 updates did not download. Instead of "Downloading [updatename]... complete!" it says it failed. I tried to download/install them again after a system restart (had to restart for the updates that DID install) but no luck. I tried disabling my firewall and antivirus and tried again, didn't do anything. The error code is 0x80070005, and it just says to install the update again (which I can't do...). Specifically, the updates are "Update for Windows XP (KB951072)" and "Security Update for Windows XP (KB950974)"

Is anyone else having this problem or have any idea what to do?

Hi

Just my opinion on 10074 test preview, but most of the modern apps are so buggy you can do very little with them. For example I had to open Firefox to make this post as spartan just kept refreshing every time I tried to make this post.

Music app is quirky to say the least, sometimes coming up with cant find this song or cant access it. Yet all my music is in the cloud and a copy on hard disk with the music app pointing to the folder.

Insider hub wont log in just sits at the opening screen then says check your internet connection.

Outlook seems to work ok but doesnt pick up all your account from one preview to another which saves a lot of setting up as the previous mail app did.

Those are just the apps I tested and at least feedback now works as with other builds it was intermittent.

MS say that Windows 10 is nearly ready for release, I hope not as there is a lot of re-coding to be done with just the few bugs I have found. No wonder Windows 8 still has bugs!

My computer installed this update (Windows 10 Insider Preview 14965) back around the middle of November and I have noticed two things. First -- Microsoft Edge took it upon itself to reinstate itself as my "Default Browser" and secondly now I keep having issues when navigating the internet. Basically I will click a link and the browser will pretend like it's going to go but then tell me it can't find the page so I just hit refresh and ta-da the page is there. It happens on any website (whether Amazon, Google, Microsoft, etc) and in Edge, Chrome and IE.

Anyone else having this type of issue? I also play games that rely on the internet and I haven't had any issues when them nor do I have any issues pinging websites even when I let ping run for 20 to 30 minutes while I'm browsing the web and experience the issue. I'm tempted to uninstall the update but if others updated and aren't seeing the issue then I may just have a weird DNS issue going on.

Thoughts?

Answer:How do I know if my PC is enrolled in Windows Insider Preview?

When you download Insider Preview, you will agree that microsoft can take some data on your pc. this is because insider preview is for beta testing. They need to fix glitches or something like that. They won't use it for bad things..
To check if you are in insider preview,
Go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Advanced Settings.

Hello guys, I am a new member to these forums; however, I have been lurking through and reading posts here for a little while. I have a situation here I can not seem to solve that has me pulling my hair out. The first thing I want to say starting is that I am not a professional by any means I only really know so much I am still in the process of learning myself I guess I would say. With that said I know more than anyone else in my family and friends and generally end up being the one fixing everyone's computer.

Answer:Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview problem?

I'm not sure I understand the problem as you describe it TCB. I am going to print the post and try to separate it into paragraphs so that, hopefully, I'll understand a bit better. A great big hint: When we see a large chunk of text like this, it's rather confusing, to say the least. Paragraphs help a lot.

First, a few questions:

Did the computer come with Windows 8.0 or Windows 8.1? Is it Windows Core (Home) or Pro? Does your cousin want to install the free version of Windows 10 or did he buy a Retail copy of Windows 10? These are questions that need to be answered before we can give you a good answer.

Yeah, this is the Windows Insider Forum, but we're easy. It seems "Insider" stuff is mixed in anyway. I'll be back in a few to see if I can help you out.

Either you are activated or you aren't. It has nothing to do with insider build versions, Microsoft accounts or anything else.

Hi! I have an aspire desktop, SNID:2666778330So basically the problem is, the text in my bios looks like an atari 800, see attached image, and the operating system looked like it was squished into the side of the screen and pixelized until I installed the graphics driver. the BIOS is still un-legible, though, and I tried reinstalling the BIOS from Acer's support website, and I reinstalled the chipset driver, and I reinstalled the AMT driver. the main problem now is the BIOS. also noticing a noticeable drop in performance. I have also reinstalled windows twice.

Interesting build, it's got the most new features of any build to date in the Creators Update path and probably close to feature complete. The big thing that most around here will probably be the new options to delay updater and turn off driver updates. But only fa the Pro, Education and Enterprise versions do I'm sure that will receive a lot of complaints. However if one is on the Pro version, these options should take care of the majority of the complaints I've noticed. No turning off updates permanently, but a 35 day delay provides a good amount of time to address bad updates and get fixes out before the next 35 days.

As for the other big issue beyond updating, I've not seen anything on telemetry changes. Insider Builds don't allow any of that to be changed so there'd be little to see there if it did but no mention in the release notes anyway. The biggest thing I like, the Start Menu finally has the foldering system that Windows Phone 8.1 had years ago. I know there are the tile haters but you can put an LOT of tiles in a compact space now and they expand out when the group is clicked. No way to nest the folders though.

So nothing here that would probably change too many minds about 10 though the updating changes for Pro and above will probably make some happier.
