Warning: Before you continue, make sure you backup all your data on the computer your receiving the error on. The create a system restore point as a safety net if something goes wrong during the fixing process.

1. Temporarily Disable Antivirus and Firewall settings (Enable once update is complete)

2. Run Windows Update Troubleshooter

3. Setup Clean Boot in MSCONFIG and Run Windows Update

4. Rename SoftwareDistribution and catroot2 Folders. To do this we will need to stop Windows Update services.

Open Command Prompt with Admin rights

net stop wuauserv
net stop cryptSvc
net stop bits
net stop msiserver

Now we can rename folders

ren C:WindowsSoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
ren C:WindowsSystem32catroot2 catroot2.old

Once done restart Servers

net start wuauserv
net start cryptSvc
net start bits
net start msiserver

5. Navigate to the following registry key:


Look for AllowOSUpgrade and set value to 1

6. Run System File Checker

Open Command Prompt with Admin rights


Once complete type:

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

  1. Unfortunately these steps didn't resolve my continuing issues with installing feature updates from Microsoft. Actually nobody from Microsoft representatives could help me as well 🙁
    I always have this error:
    0x8007042B – 0x4000D
    The installation failed in the SECOND_BOOT phase with an error during MIGRATE_DATA operation
    I never can install any feature updates regular way (from 1803 till 2004), I can only install them when I do factory reset and remove all data ant apps from my PC…
    Please let me know what can be a reason and how to fix it.

  2. i am try to update my window 7 from 4days and every time it is showing we could not able to update your pc undoing changes plzzzzz can some one help mwe to solve this promblemss

  3. When I go to "Choose what you keep" stage, I got this message : "We can't tell if your PC is ready to continue installing Windows 10. Try restarting Setup." I tried restarting the setup, running it as an Administrator, turning off my Antivirus and disconnecting my internet. It's still not working.

  4. Thanks for the video. Was upgrading WIndows 7 to Windows 10 on a Panasonic CF54. Kept hitting a blank screen with a cursor about 1/3 of the way through. Even our IT was stumped. The MSCONFIG trick and disabling WIFI and updates worked. Much obliged.

  5. Well this was silly, you are in Windows 10 fixing update issues and the title is We couldn't install Windows 10. Nifty

  6. Please help!! When I try to upgrade everything goes as you said until it gets to the actual install. The circle rotates but it stays at 0% and nothing happens. Thank you.

  7. Hi! umm like nothing worked lol hers the error code:
    Some update files are missing or have problems. We'll try to download the update again later. Error code: (0x8007000d)

  8. Then from where I can try installing windows again I mean after trying these methods, from where I can reinstall it. Plz telll

  9. Does this process work on Windows 7. I am trying to upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 10 but I get this error: "Windows 10 installation has failed"

    No specific error codes to work with. Any ideas?

  10. hi! is it working on windows 8? cause that's the same problem iv'e encountered in my windows 8 version.

  11. Is this but yours looks like it already has 10 in it well of course it's going to be easy to get 10 downloaded I have 7 and it will not download 10 and I've got 27 gigabytes available

  12. Disabled antivirus while online is bad idea.. Why you would even suggested this to ordinary folks? Also we are in 2019 and unplug any usbs is not possible or perhaps not even need it.. So why? You know what ramsom ware is… Can you explain your self and please dont come back to me that this is windows company how it works or this is what Windows wants me to do….

  13. I've tried a few of these (turning off all the start up items and antivirus/firewall etc) to try and upgrade from Win7 to 10 and each time I get as far as it spending hours installing and then when it is finally booting up, at the last minute before it gets to my login screen it comes up with 'undoing all the changes made to the computer' and then I log in and it tells me that there was an error '8007001F x20006 the upgrade failed at the SAFE_OS phase during the REPLICATE_OC operation'. i'm at the point now where I am thinking of restoring the computer to factory settings to try and install win10 from there. Any ideas or advice would be great.
