Windows 1903 Installation Is Stuck - Yoga Pro 2

2019-07-03, 12:11 PM

I started the upgrade to 1903 yesterday and after three hours of watching the Lenovo Splash Screen frozen, I cycled the power.

 

This morning the Splash Screen is there with the dots spinning.

 

Anyone have any ideas?

 

I'd be grateful.

So here's what I did to remedy this:

 

I could not roll it back via the boot menu because the drive was locked with bitlocker. All that startup menu offered was a factory install. So I did this:

  1. I downloaded the 1903 Windows 10 ISO.
  2. I booted from there.
  3. I selected install.
  4. I selected repair.
  5. I selected rollback.

It worked. 

I would like to install 1903, but I am a bit gun-shy.

 

The 500 GB SSD drive in my Yoga 2 has only 20 GB free. Do you think that might have been my problem?

 

Thanks,

I cannot be sure, but the full drive MIGHT be the cause.  If it were mine, I would delete some files or upgrade the disk first.  The windows cleanup would be a good place to start.  I would then get a full backup before trying again.

 

I want to add something.  If I were using software encryption (like bitlocker) I would unencrypt before starting the upgrade and restore the encryption after, even though that would take some time.  I'm not sure why, but I would feel more comfortable that way.
