Hi, I have tried anything to update my PC (Dell Studio XPS, Windows 10 pro, version 1607) to Windows 10 version 1709 with no success. I always get error 0x80070057 at the end. I have tried all solutions I could find on internet. For example: 1. changing register values (e.g. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\SystemCertificates into CopyFileBufferedSynchronousIo with value 1) 2. renaming or deleting folder /Windows/SoftwareDistribution 3. performed a clean startup of Windows 4. scanned the PC on several problems with sfc (nothing found) 5. checked all drivers for potential problems (nothing found) 6. disabled specific anti-virus software and firewall software (i.e. ESET Security) 7. runned Windows Update troubleshooter (could not fix anything) 8. etc etc Does any of you have other suggestions for me? The problem seen insolvable. I do not want to reinstall Windows 10 from scratch.
With the Windows 10 Anniversary Update now in full effect, many users are embracing the upgrade. So far though, quite a number of users are experiencing the 0x80070057 error when attempting update or upgrade. The error happens most of the time when using the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant. The Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant is a smaller upgrade wizard used to download and upgrade to Windows 10. It lacks the detailed upgrade options available in the Media Creation Tool. Here is what the error looks like: If you are upgrading using Windows Update or the Upgrade Assistant, after the download reaches 100%, disconnect immediately if you are connected by LAN (Ethernet) or Wi-Fi. There are multiple ways to do this, you can disconnect the Ethernet cable if you are connected to a wireless network. If you are connected to a wireless network, you can manually disable Wi-Fi by turning off the Wireless switch on your laptop. See the following article for more details: How to Ensure a Smooth Upgrade to Windows 10 Anniversary Update Use the Media Creation Tool If the Upgrade Assistant still does not upgrade, another option available on the Get Windows 10 page is the Media Creation Tool, which is a small application with more detailed options for upgrading. In addition to supporting direct upgrades, if you have multiple computers running Windows 10 or earlier versions; you can use it to create custom bootable media with a mix of Home, Pro, 32 and 64-bit versions. The Media Creation Tool can create an ISO file containing all editions and architectures of Windows 10 Anniversary Update. An ISO file is a digital replica of a CD or DVD. The ISO file also supports offline upgrades. I recommend this method for upgrades. Select the option, Upgrade this PC now then follow the on-screen instructions. If you choose the option, Create installation media for another PC, you will be prompted to select your language, edition, and architecture.
