No Desktop after Creators Update (1703 or 1709) on L530

2017-11-03, 14:46 PM

Since June 2017 I am trying to update Windows 10 pro 64 bit on a ThinkPad L530.  Last year I upgraded it from Windows 7 to 10 and later installed the Anniversary Update (1607), which is still working fine. However, since June Windows forces me to the Creators Update. The complete Update seems to work fine taking several hours including several automatic restarts.  Then I am able to log in and see some messages indicating it is completing the update. After a while the display turns black and stays black! When I touch the mouse, I do see the mouse pointer, but the desktop does not come up.
However, what does work at this point is Ctrl-Alt-Del and I see the menu. I can select the Task Manager, but it does not come up - at least not immediately. When I leave it that way over night, I do see the Task Manager in the morning, but still not the desktop. It shows very little CPU and disk activity.
So far, I tried many suggestions, such as installing the ThinkPad Monitor INF File for Windows 10 and Elan ThinkPad UltraNav Driver drivers manually (before updating Windows) or starting in Safe Mode after the Update.
In Safe Mode don't see the desktop neither, but the task manager comes up already after 10 minutes (instead of hours) and I see an empty desktop - no icons and the Start Menu or Command Entry don't open,.
I assume, there is still some bad driver which does work for 1607 but not after updating to 1703 or 1709.

I have exactly the same problem only with a ThinkCentre M700. Win 10 pro. All drivers up to date. Updating to 1703. Last try was 12/15/2017

Just found out: When I said "No desktop" it was not quite correct. It did come up today, after waiting 8 hours after signging in! However, I only see the background and an empty task bar. No icons and no reaction on any keystroke.
