        Hello. We use Windows 10 Enterprise, build 1809 (which has extended support until 11.5.2021).

        I want to upgrade one machine from 1703 to 1809 and it crashes on 90% or smth like that. Error says: sorry, we were unable to install Windows 10.

        I use Media Creation tool flash disk, I run this from Windows itself as administrator. It worked on approx 40 computers before, but this is big issue for me.

        In windows logs, i see this cause of failing:

        “Service WinRM cant transfer module for listening with IP address * and HTTP transfer. Module for listening with same configuration address already exists.”

        • sorry, maybe my translation is not so good, hope you get my point

        Should I stop some service, or what do you recommend to try?

        Thank a lot, Doriel.

        My guess is that you have a duplicate IP address or other network error, although I can’t see why it would want to transfer anything as the install is from the flash drive.

        On other PCs in domain upgrade went smooth without any problems. It has to be something specific to this computer. I checked AD for IP duplicates, but there arent any. I wonder if it is possible to empty “WinRM” list somehow and try again.

        As it’s an AD machine.
        Check for duplicate machines in AD.
        Try resetting the machine password, then upgrading.

        you should NOT be using the media creation tool for getting the Win10 Enterprise edition anyway, doriel

        the MCT tool normally gets “consumer” editions of Win10 like Home & Pro.

        since Enterprise is a “business” edition (and I hope you do have a valid volume license for using Enterprise) get the Win10 v1809 V2 business edition ESD file here (which includes Enterprise along with Pro & Education editions), the use either an esd decrypt-multi-release tool or esd decrypter wimlib batch script tool to convert an ESD file into an ISO and use either Rufus or other usb tool to write the ISO image onto a usb flash drive

          Hello and thank you for your advice.
          I today finally found out, why my updates crashed during installation. Our AV Sophos blocked the process. When I removed Sophos and activated Windows defender from W10 Enterprise, installation went well on all affected computers.

          I am little bit concerned about that information, that I should NOT be using MCT to update W10 Enterprise.
          Of course, we have licensing volume (licensing server). Enterprise keys are the same for all computers in the world, just licensing server varies.
          First of all I licensed Win 10 PRO and then upgraded license to Enterprise for every computer – thats the correct way according to MS.
          Then I downloaded All-In-One version of W10 1809 and made a USB stick from it – it should have all versions included.

            It probably depends on how you obtain Windows. As you bought it on the PC and then changed the license there shouldn’t be an issue – I’ve not tested this as I use the enterprise downloads and create an image for building new / rebuilding existing PCs.

            cheers, Paul

            “Then I downloaded All-In-One version of W10 1809 and made a USB stick from it – it should have all versions included.”

            where did you download this AIO (All-In-One version), doriel?

            the “consumer” multi-edition 1809 ESD file contains only Home, Pro & Education editions as I checked myself.

            the “business” multi-edition 1809 ESD file, on the other hand, contains only Pro, Education & Enterprise editions as I also checked that one myself.

            edit – I did find this:
            https://www.itechtics.com/download-windows-10-enterprise-iso/

            however that only applies to downloading the most recent Win10 ESD & ISO files and not for older Win10 versions like 1809. if you really want to download an older Win10 ISO Enterprise version, try using the Heidoc’s Windows ISO Downloader tool

              Hello.

              where did you download this AIO (All-In-One version), doriel?

              Good question. Unfortunatelly I cant rememeber exactly, the date of my AIO ISO image says April 2019. I belive it was from Microsoft webpage. ISO downloader does not offer such option.
              At this point, also notice, that there is no Enterprise version available in the ISO downloader!
              I belive, that Enterprise is just different type of licensing, Enterprise is serviced for a longer period of time.
              Second fact, that supports this theory is, that if you upgrade from Pro to Enterprise, you just enter Enterprise key. No update, no installation, .. nothing.
              So I belive Pro and Enterprise are the same Windows 10, just licensing period varies. Same with Education.

              I will let you know, I will come back here later.
              The truth is, that FIRST of all, user should license Pro edition and then do the upgrade to Enterprise. We buy PC with OEM license Windows 10 Pro. So after OoBE I connect my new PC to the internet and activate Pro. Then I connect to our domain (company network), enter the Enterprise key and then I license Enterprise.

              Hello again, Ive done some testing and here are the results:

              AIO version (which I downloaded from MS website) contains only Home, Pro and Edu editions. Both x86 and x64 architecture.
              If I enter enterprise key durind installation, error appears and it states that, Enterprise edition is not included in AIO. So there is need to install PRO first and then upgrade to Enterprise via Windows itself – which is not so elegant.

              Interesting is, that if I run the same installation from USB – it upgrades my system to desired 1809 Enterprise (If I have licensed Enterprise 1709 foe example).
              This is screenshot from clean installation on VMware when I enter Enterprise key during installation, sorry for czech again 🙁

              enterpise

              And this is what happens if I run the same USB stick from Windows.

              wind

              Isnt this really interesting? Honestly I dnt know what to think about and I dont care since it functions…
