Tried to do a Windows 10 repair (install that maintains all my personal data and apps), but got a windows 10 install error 0x8007042b - 0x2000d.  See attached for screen shot of error.


Per this website:  https://www.howtoedge.com/fix-windows-10-update-error-0x8007042b-0x2000d/#:~:text=The%20presence%20of%20faulty%20USB,resolve%20any%20update%2Drelated%20issues. 


I tried the following to help resolve the issue, but it still persist.

  • Remove additional USB peripherals - I removed everything except my mouse dongle and keyboard.
  • Uninstall Third-party Antivirus - I use Malwarebytes for anti-virus

I'm just trying to fix a small issue that I can live with, but like to have all my windows components working.  Click this link for my post for my issues I am hving with windows 10:  http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/topic/375613-windows-10-basic-apps-missing/#entry2656043  


Any assistance on this would be much appreciated.  Thanks!!

SetupDiag is a free diagnostic tool by Microsoft that is designed to find and parse Windows 10 setup log files to determine why an upgrade or update failed to install on a computer system.

SetupDiag works only on devices running Windows 10. The second requirement is that it depends on the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6 which needs to be installed on the device it is run on.

If you run SetupDiag without parameters, it attempts to locate log files that Windows 10 creates during the upgrade process in the default folders on the device.

The program creates a results.log file in its directory when it completes the scan which includes upgrade issues that it detected in the log files during parsing.

SetupDiag creates a zip archive of all log files that it processed on top of that which it saves as Logs.zip in the same directory as well.
