Every time I restart it fails to install. I tried changing the registry keys under profile list to my C: drive instead of %systemdrive% as mentioned here.

Windows 10 Cumulative Updates Failing (On Computer with SSD System Drive + HDD)

I still get the same problem. I would try a few more things but there is no error code it literally just states that it failed..

  • copy the folder C:\Windows\logs\CBS to the desktop, zip the folder, upload the zip to OneDrive, create a share link and post the link here. I'll try to find out why you can't install the update. – magicandre1981 Oct 10 '15 at 18:37

  • Download it and try manual install – Moab Oct 10 '15 at 21:24
  • @Moab I tried to do this before. The install is fine but when I restart it says it can't apply the update. – Pudding Oct 10 '15 at 21:26
  • ok, I posted what I saw from the logs. – magicandre1981 Oct 11 '15 at 7:00

According to the log, Windows can't create a hardlink of the file PresentationCore.dll because the destination is not on C:, it is on drive D: (D:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.0\PresentationCore.dll)

2015-10-10 17:14:15, Error CSI 00000008 (F) Error: ResolvePendingTransactions called after poqexec failure (call 1)
Status = STATUS_NOT_SAME_DEVICE, Operation = HardLinkFile, DiagString = [l:414{207}]"\SystemRoot\WinSxS\amd64_presentationcore_31bf3856ad364e35_10.0.10240.16425_none_b4330ece2aa010d8\PresentationCore.dll, \??\D:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.0\PresentationCore.dll"

and this causes a STATUS_NOT_SAME_DEVICE error and Windows stops installing the update.

So you moved the Program Files folder from C: to D: and this is not supported.

  • I changed the programdir key to D: so I would have to keep changing location in every installer. Good job and thanks so much! – Pudding Oct 11 '15 at 15:34
