that error can mean anything and mostly means driver error or some
other software that interferes with the upgrade

Goodness knows what is causing this thing.

The funny thing is, that my little, old packard Bell netbook from
2010 upgraded to 1703 without any issues whatsoever, even using my
smartphone as a hotspot...

As long as i entered in the right error code and did not leave any
thing else i done a quick search and came up with this page at

Hopefully i copied the whole error code but it if it is this one
looks like you need to update your audio driver or try some of the steps

Usually at times it is usually to do with a usb device.

Well, I think we tried all possible troubleshooting tools and
fixes available. Every time we were back to square one. A sort of
"catch 22" situation. We were advised to restoer, but restore
wouldn't work. we were advised to use a cd, but that told us there
was an error (always the same error code!).

I'll try with the newer version as soon as it appears, but I'm
afraid I'll have to stay on this 1607 thingy, unless I want to
format the machine...

Ciao, thanks!

I have and it is a serious pain. Try the windows update
troubleshooting tool. Just google it and then install it from MS.
If that dowsnt fix it there are some more advanced workarounds
but Sometimes it is easier to just reinstall windows with the latest

says there's an error, and can't complete the procedure.

Thanks, ciao,
