    bbearren, still won't update to 1803. Gets to 75% and goes to he blue screen and then
    "Restoring your previous version of Windows."

    When I ran all the commands in Command Prompt the ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old gave "The system cannot find
    the file specified." Not sure if this is significant at all?
    Also nothing happened with attrib c: \boot\bcd -h -r -s

    Just a question, must the Installation disk stay in the PC until the Update 1803 is updated successfully?
    Just wondering if I'm doing something wrong.

    Thanks.

    You can leave the installation disc in; you would get an error message if it needed to be removed.

    Open an elevated Command Prompt, then type

    diskpart

    and hit Enter. When you get a DISKPART Prompt, type

    list vol

    and hit Enter. Post a snip of the results.

    One more image, if you will. Open Disk Management, get a snip of that and post it.

    I've been under the assumption that your PC is UEFI/GPT, but I need to be sure in order to proceed. If you will, get back into DISKPART and type

    list disk

    and post a snip of that.

    Your disk is MBR, which means your system is BIOS/MBR and not UEFI/GPT, which is probably why the automatic repair option did not work, as well as the reason for other errors. This will require a few more steps.

    I'll stay with you all the way, Dave.

    Get back into DISKPART using the previous instructions. After you get the DISKPART Prompt, type

    list vol

    and hit Enter. Note the volume number for the volume labeled System Rese (the full label was truncated in your screen snip; it is System Reserved). In your snip it is Volume 1, and it should show up the same now, but make sure you use the correct number as shown in DISKPART Volume.

    You need to assign a drive letter to that volume. Be certain you have the correct volume number, then Type

    sel vol 1

    and hit Enter (if 1 is the correct volume number). Next type

    assign letter=v:

    Diskpart should say that it has successfully assigned the drive letter. Now exit DISKPART back to the Command Prompt. In the Command Prompt, type

    v:

    and hit Enter.

    Type

    dir

    and hit Enter. Post a snip of that screen.

    From an elevated Command Prompt, type

    v:

    and hit Enter. Then type

    cd boot

    and hit Enter. Next, run the following commands one at a time, letting each complete.

    bootrec /fixmbr
    bootrec /fixboot
    bcdedit /export c:\bcdbackup
    attrib c:\boot\bcd -h -r -s
    ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
    bootrec /rebuildbcd

    If you hit a snag, post a snip of it.
