I tried that, yes. Mid-way it will tell me that the update failed, and it will restore my previous OS.

Well customer service, Microsoft's in particular, is known for having stock-answers, with no actual computer knowledge that they weren't trained with FOR the job.
Essentially, they think closed-minded because their job training has taught them to do so. Their response would likely be the same as Microsoft's troubleshooting website. Just not worth wasting my time on.
Regardless, I've backed everything up, and I'm about to reformat. Given up on finding another solution. Will just have to deal with it, I guess.
Thanks again for everyone's help.
