Hi everyone. I'm in almost the same boat; I'll explain by copying my post to another forum...
"Thanks for this info. Unfortunately for me it is a bit too late ! After an overnight, auto update of Windows 10 some days ago, I was greeted with a BSOD and the error message "Critical Path Died". After a few attempts to restart Win10 I was getting nowhere so, secure in the knowledge I had full back-ups of all my important files, I launched the nuclear option and did a re-install of Windows.
Success, in that Windows runs; failure because now I have winver 1511 and my "PC settings aren’t supported yet" ! I always find it encouraging when a fix makes matters worse... ;-)
In Microsoft Store all the programs are greyed out because my machine is not good enough to run them - even though they were installed and running before the update !
Come on, guys. You're driving me to Linux !!!"
Unfortunately this is not the first time an update has caused problems with my machine which is a fairly standard HP laptop. Normally it is fairly simple to find the reason - I am an expert on Clean Boot - but this time I can't find a way out...
Looking forward to some good news via Update Central !!
If this upgradation fails normally then look at the set up error logs
