Windows 7: Failed win 10 update from win 7. errors 80200053 & 800700c1

30 Oct 2015   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
Failed win 10 update from win 7. errors 80200053 & 800700c1

Tried to update to windows 10 from windows 7, 3 times, failed each time. The first 2 times I received the 800700c1 error code. After doing a few things suggested from searching that code it no longer came up but I got 80200053 error code.

I stumbled across this forum and followed the instructions on how to post (SURT, SFC scan, error codes and log collection).

Hopefully some one can lead me in the right direction from the attached logs.

I'd be very hesitant messing with system files, which are protected, with ownership is to TrustedInstaller. Almost all of the time, trying to restore ownership manually fails and you can still alter, copy, delete them, exactly what malware does. XCOPY will replace the file, but I haven't found a viable solution to the restoration of ownership to TrustedInstaller. Tried Brinks post several times, after performing the steps, it indicates TrustedInstaller has ownership, but file/folder still can be altered, copied, or deleted. Don't know if XCOPY command from Repair Environment would be preserve TrustedInstaller ownership. NoelDP certainly would have the answer.

Have your tried running SFCfix.exe by Niemiro, It recognizes win8, 8.1 & 10, then starts DISM utility. Worth a try, worst that could happen is nothing, best case scenario, it resolves your issues.

I'd try that first before messing with system files.
