HI I'm getting the following error when updating windows 10 2019 LTSC to Windows 10 21H2 LTSC we are trying to update out master image for a project.

"the system registry contains invalid file paths. installation cannot proceed. the system image was applied without guaranteeing the the drive letter assignments would match across computers"

Any good thing to try

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting in Q&A forum.

    Please open Windows Explorer. Right click "This PC". Select Properties. Select "Advance system settings". Under "Advance" tab, select "Environment Variables". Look for "Path" under "System variables". Click "Edit" and delete everything. Just retain entries with reference to %SystemRoot. See sample below:

    %SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\

    Once done, restart your computer.

    Best regards,

    Jill Zhou
