When trying to update to windows 10 I received error message 0x80080005-0x90016 after looking in the Microsoft support forum I found that the problem was related to windows 7 not being up to date. I checked and found that my computer stopped udating a couple of years ago. I tried running MS Fixit which didn't work. Tried to restart (BITS) and got ERROR 126 (module could not be found) I then followed the instructions at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2700567 on how to reset Windows Update components. During the process I got the following errors:
mshtml.dll loaded but the entry point dllregisterserver was not found
shdocvw.dll " " " "
browseui.dll " " " "
msxml.dll Module failed to load make sure binary is stored at the specified path the specified module could not be found.
actprxy.dll Failed could not be found
gpkcsp.dll " " " "
initpki.dll " " "
wuaueng1.dll " " "
wucltui.dll " " "
wuweb.dll " " " "
muweb.dll " " " "
I guess my question is do I need to do a system restore on windows 7 before i can upgrade to windows 10? Or is there some other way ?
I read your post about windows update problems and wanted to help.
I wish I could say that updating to Win10 was an exact science where we know exactly how it does that and what it needs -- but the flooding of this and other Win10 forums with problem after problem indicates that, at best, we're all guessing.
After you have created the DVD or USB, do NOT boot from it; instead, insert it into your PC and, if it does not auto-start, right-click the setup.exe file and run it.
HOWEVER -- and this is important -- Win7 PCs have a low success rate upgrading to Win10 without problems -- primariluy due to the lack of OEM Win10 drivers. Typical reported problems include display artifacts (due to being forced to use the Microsoft Basic Adapter driver), no WiFi, and touchpad problems. The drivers that Microsoft provides have only the most basic functionality, with none of the extras that the HP drivers bring to the scene.
This is further complicated by the Win10 GoBack function, by which you can revert to your original OS, being known to be unreliable. So, when your upgraded machine works poorly, only then do you find out that you can't go back to the working machine you had originally!
You can protect yourself against ending up with a corrupted machine -- by seriously considering using a free third-party product that doea imaging/restoration functions -- Macrium Reflect.
Macrium Reflect (MR) provides a FREE version that can be used to image and restore partitions or entire drives.
What I recommend is the following: 1) Download and install Macrium Reflect (MR) 2) Run MR and choose the option: "Create an image of the partition(s) required to backup and restore Windows" to write a full backup to an external drive or USB stick 3) Use the option to create a boot USB stick or CD
NOW, you have the means to restore a full working system from the external drive or USB stick in only a few minutes.
So now, you can charge ahead with the upgrade knowing that no matter what happens, you will actually be able to go back to your currently working state in only a few minutes.
