I was wondering if I can update my Windows 10 from a USB, using an ISO.

I have had problems updating for about a year, and tried everything.

My Windows 10 never updates, and is still stuck on 1703.

It has been so long since update, that I now have a desktop shortcut called Windows 10 Update Assistant, which I have run 3 times now.

The last run, I got error code 0x80070002 (Something to do with Did not find hard disk space needed).

Here is my error log (C:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\Panther\setuperr.log):

Anyway, I was wondering if I could update my Windows 10 to the latest update, via ISO, without losing all of my data.

SYSTEM SPECS: HERE I also have a dual boot setup, with Kali Linux (I do lots of security stuff), with GRUB boot-loader.

From the error, are you sure your Windows partition doesn’t run out of space when upgrading? A larger upgrade could use quite a bit of space, especially temporarily.

You can try an in-place upgrade from an install medium, like an iso or a Windows USB stick. Plug the pen drive and launch “setup.exe”. You should get to install updates and then upgrade, choosing to keep your apps and data.

I had some trouble doing this with a fairly broken Windows installation a while back. It only eventually worked when I used the USB installer, and told it not to save my apps or data. I don’t know if this is common or not, but the install worked and functionality was restored. This also did not touch my dual boot setup of Ubuntu.

Of course you should absolutely make sure to have full backups of any important data in any OS on the machine before proceeding, just because.

Good luck!
