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.
Solved! Go to Solution.

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:
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?

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.
