Problem: In a previous post, I attempted to update my computer on the domain to Windows 10 using the App/icon in the systray but was unable to get the icon when on the domain. Removed the workstation from the domain and the app appeared. I haven’t received my “notice” that my upgrade is ready so I decided to use the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool. When I run the tool, I get the following error:
“Something happened 0x80070002 – 0x20016”
No other explanation and many people are having the issue. I tried adding it to the domain and running it and on a workgroup but no luck. Here’s what else I tried from suggestions from askkvg.com:
- Ran the creation tool as administrator: No luck
- Change system locale: No luck
- Uninstall Antivirus: No luck
- Enabled required services: No luck
So that was a bust. It seemed to work for some but not for all.
Solution: Found this solution on a Reddit post and I was able to use windows update instead of the Media Creation Tool. I’m still looking for a solution for the creation tool so please share if you have a suggestion.
