Cody/TechDeja, creator update failed. Black screen stall at 75% forced restart then red screen stall at 82%. Now restoring previous version.

ok I have one more thing to try, if that doesn't work then we would need to backup everything and reload Windows which would remove file and programs.

My son's tech friend said he had to increase the size of EFI TO 250 mb. Then the install worked.

It's been well over an hour and no movement. The thought is boost EFI to 250 and run Windows update trouble shooter WU170509.

prob can power it off/on if it hasn't moved
