Microsoft released Windows 10 KB4093112 a couple of days ago and it appears to be causing some issues on a number of systems. While the cumulative updates are supposed to fix bugs, Windows 10 KB4093112 is nothing more than a nightmare for some users as the new update fails to install. It is worth noting that Microsoft has not acknowledged the bug yet.

The users pointing to such bugs is growing at a worrying rate and by the looks of things, it is a widespread problem affecting a number of systems.

Windows 10 KB4093112 is not installing

Microsoft is, however, saying that the company is only aware of just one issue that causes Windows Update to incorrectly report that the installation of the cumulative update has failed. While the users claim there’s more than false installation error. A number of users are reporting that KB4093112 is another botched updates and it fails to install with a common error.

A user claims that the KB4093112 will install, reboot and after few seconds, the system fails to load hard drives. The user further explains that it could more than 5 minutes to reboot the system. Microsoft is yet to acknowledge any such issue at the time of writing this story. The symptoms are pretty much the same as for the previous cumulative updates.

Windows 10 KB4093112 Installation Errors: 0x800f081f, 0x800f0900 and 0x80070bc2

In a post on Microsoft forum, the user says that Windows 10 KB4093112 fails to install with error code 0x800f081f, while some user says the update ends up with error code 0x800f0900. Furthermore, a number of users are claiming that the latest update for Windows 10 operating system is stuck in a loop and reboots does not help. Many users are saying the update pushed the system into an infinite reboot loop after attempting to update Windows 10.

The cumulative updates installation are failing with most common error and it appears to be forcing the system into a reboot loop before offering the update once again. While most of the users have actually managed to install the update, but after installing the update, the Start menu is no longer working and the taskbar is broken, as a result, the pinned apps and start menu do not open when clicked.

Windows 10 cumulative updates have failed to install for quite some time now, but the Windows 10 KB4093112 installation issue is very widespread. You can always recover Windows 10 and reinstall the operating system if the update breaks anything. Are you able to install the latest version of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update?

    Been having massive issues trying to get this update to install. after it fails to install my Laptop spends about 2-3 hours rebooting numerous times until it finds a version of windows it is happy with. This happens once a week and is incredibly frustrating. Especially as I cannot seem to turn the updates off. Or turn on an option asking me to skip this update. I have tried to manually install it via the MS website, with the same disappointing result.

    • Same here. I can’t turn off automatic updates, too, so I am forced to suffer this reboot loop several times a day.

  • No issues with the update on 3 different machines. But I always run the Windows Update Trouble Shooter before an update, just in case some corruption has occurred. Updates went without a hitch with only 2 reboots, 1/2 to 1 hour on each machine from initialization to completion. Unusable machine time about 10 minutes.

    This is definitely a confirmed problem. Remote access with a MS support technician found that this update was not thoroughly tested and is incompatible with my device for now. The support tech disabled auto updates and told me to contact support sometime in the future when the problem may be resolved and then I can update my computer.

    Add me to the list. I tried many routes from manual update to trying in a clean boot state etc (Laptop is Chuwi Lapbook 12.3 with expanded storage). The update installs and laptop restarts to uninstall it. Last night I turned the auto-updates off, to prevent the system from reinstalling the April 2018 update and then undoing changes loop. Hope there will be a fix soon.

    I am having the same issue on Windows 10 Pro. The install fails with error 0x800f081f. It fails and then keeps trying to download and install it again. This is a relatively new install (2 months old) and I haven’t had any previous Windows Update issues. I’ve run the Windows Update trouble-shooter multiple times since but it is unable to correct the problem. SFC /scannow says there is no file corruption.

    Me too. caused taskbar to flash and stop applications from starting even closing those that I managed to start. Uninstall the KB4093112 and everything is back to normal.

  • I am in the middle of this reboot loop and it’s seriously a problem businesswise. I am lucky if I can edit and render my videos before the system reboots, but it just cancels my video uploads and reboots if I don’t actively work on my computer and therefore stop the automatic reboot. I even tried to install the update manually, but it didn’t help. There is no Spring Creator’s Update yet.

  • bgottschall

    Nope. Does not install for me. Have tried the Microsoft Update Troubleshooter and any other option I can find. Works on some systems on our network, but definitely causes issues with others.

  • W Zoorn

    First time I ever had trouble installing an update and it is exactly as described. Stuck in a loop and rebooting does nothing. Happened on two separate downloads.

  • Mayank Parmar

    Wacom pens broken for anyone?

  • KingDWH

    Will not install Error 0x800f081f Tried troubleshooter, it tried to install but failed

  • Wagner

    I can’t install the update, I have the same error. What to do now?

  • Erica

    i get error 0x80070bc2. So far I am not experiencing any problems using my computer.

  • Easty

    On powering off, I am told there is an update, so I click ‘update and shut’down’ but on next start up, the OS performs a check of drive C, and then I see that KB4093112 is still queued to be installed. Since this started, I notice that user documents are randomly going missing. Lucky I have real time back-up on a USB drive. While typing this feedback, the PC randomly re-booted!

  • Sergio Nieri Barillari

    Installed or not installed?
    Problem to install and reinitialization loop.
    The problem continues.

  • I’m using a Dell Inspiron 3541 and this update is a nightmare. Since my laptop isn’t very poweful the update takes 2 hours to do its install cycle and when it restarts after it’s done, my laptop shuts off just seconds after logging back in and seeing my desktop. And shortly after I turn it back on, I get an error saying that the update failed to install. Been like that for over a week now.

  • Bob Ellison

    I have an HP Envy desktop on which Windows 10 update KB4093112 will not install, yet I get no error message. This has been going on for about three weeks. I have restarted my PC numerous times without this update installing, and every time I turn it off at night, I still see the “Update and shut down” message. I have no clue what to do about this.
