Another Windows 10 fix

March 27, 2015

iFrmewrk.exe
The program can’t start because MSVCR110.dll is missing from your computer.
Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem

I looked in the Windows 10 feedback database and saw that at least one more has the same issue that I had after upgrading to Build 1041. I added my solutions off course to the issue but that isn’t visible (as far as I can see)

Well this issue is related to the Intel Wireless driver.

I use my work laptop a Dell Latitude E7440 so i downloaded and installed the Windows 8.1 version of the driver package and the problem was solved.


SOLVED Couldn’t install Windows 10 Technical Preview

March 19, 2015

Well today is two blog posts in a row šŸ˜€ Both covering Windows 10.

After my first issue I ran into another that had me stunned for a while.

WTF

“Couldn’t install Windows 10 Technical Preview.  Windows can’t be installed because this PC has an unsupported disk layout for UEFI firmware.  Please reboot and change the PC’s firmware to BIOS to allow Windows to setup to continue.”

I then looked into the log C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\Panther\setupact.log

There I found the cause to this error:

CONX ConX::Compatibility::CSystemAbstraction::HostIsUEFIDiskLayout: Boot disk has ESP partition.
CONX ConX::Compatibility::CSystemAbstraction::HostIsUEFIDiskLayout: Boot disk does not have MSR partition.
ConX::Compatibility::CSystemAbstraction::HostIsUEFIDiskLayout: Boot disk does not have UEFI disk layout.

I didn’t seem to have a MSR partition. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd799232%28v=ws.10%29.aspx#MicrosoftRecoveryPartitions

A quick look using diskpart confirmed this. So i opened up some space on the disk using Disk Management and created the partition.

That sorted the issue and Iā€™m writing this blog post from Build 10041


Windows Update error 0x80070057

March 19, 2015

I was about to update my Windows 10 Build 9926 to the latest one when i realized I had some issues with Windows Update

There were some problems installing updates, but we’ll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help – (0x80070057).

Solution:
Check and update two registry settings and reboot your machine.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX] “IsConvergedUpdateStackEnabled”=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX\Settings] “UxOption”=dword:00000000
