I had the same problem upgrading from Win 7 to Win 10. The Win 7 System Reserved partition was only 100 mb and it needed to be 350 mb.

*After first making sure I had a full 'disk' backup* I used Partition Wizard (free version, search on Google) to resize the System Reserved partition and 'shuffle everything else up' without data loss. Although I double checked that I understood what I was about to do, it wasn't too difficult and the Windows 10 upgrade ran to completion afterwards with no problem.


After weeks of unsuccessful attempts to install win10 I finally just goti the update through by using Expand in MiniTool Partition Wizard (free).

The cause has been because of insufficient space in the System Reserve partition of the C: drive to store & run the win10 update(s).

I went into Pocket Wizard and used the Extend function on the System Reserve partition sliding the scale to increase the size by an extra 30GB . The update went through.

Forums have said that it won't work using Resize but only via Extend.



I used MiniTool Partition Wizard (free) and I was able to extend my reserved partition and now I have Win10 1607. Thanks Adrian and Bunjo

Good to hear that it also worked for you.

I have just solved yet another common problem in Win10 off having " NLDR Error  -unable to boot" pop up each time when booting where it attempts to boot off my data drives.

Using MiniTool Partition Wizard (free) I was able to mark the data drives as INACTIVE. Now the system doesn't attempt to boot off them and the problem is solved   - thanks to MiniTool Partition Wizard (free).
