I've been running Wndows 10 for a while. When it tries to update to Windows 10 Pro, version 1511, 10586, I get the following in the event log:

Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0xC1900200: Upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, version 1511, 10586.

My research shows this error says something is incompatible so I can't upgrade, however I'm already running Windows 10.

Do you have any ideas?

  • Did you make any hardware or bios changes after the original install of w10?

  • No hardware or bios changes other than a USB device (Hauppauge 955Q)

Found this was tied to this KB article. Turns out there was not enough space on the reserved partition. So, I expanded the partition with this tool to 350mb, restarted and applied the update. It worked after that.

  • That didn't work for me. My System Reserved partition was nearly full (100MB left from 500MB), so I formatted it, now it's empty and I get the error anyway. Oct 26 '17 at 18:47
