Windows  could not update boot configuration

 

1.Reboot from Win DVD

2.Make sure you have one primary partition. If not, delete all partition and make it only one drive(Primary).

3.Create "new" on this primary partition. If you have 1 TB, allocate some amount which would be useless. Let say, you create "new", allocation just 800GB as your primary partition.

4.The treat here is to make a new Primary partition. I did not know why like that.

5.Install Win on that primary partition and you will complete the installation without "Windows  could not update boot configuration" appear any more.

6.I am using HP Compaq 8200 Elite. New installation with a clean hard drive.

I had the same error.

 

Tried everything as suggested, deleting partitions using DISKPART, "BCDBoot C:\Windows" etc, nothing worked.

 

There is a new 2018 BIOS update available for the HP8200. The 2011 BIOS will not work.

 

Install Windows 7 on the machine in question, run the update, then Install Windows 10 - this works.

(Or save the BIOS to a USB and update via the BIOS itself)

 

You can get the BIOS update here:

https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/closure/hp-compaq-8200-elite-ultra-slim-pc/5037958 

 

It extracts to C:\swsetup\sp85518

 

Run C:\swsetup\sp85518\HPQFlash\HPQFlash.exe in Windows 7 on the PC you want to update.
