With the current May update, Microsoft wanted to finally upgrade Windows 10 to version 2004. Annoying: While a large part of the users could start the update without any problems and without error messages, the delivery was delayed considerably for many. Still others are again struggling to get the latest version. If you have a specific error code, feel free to check out our blog. One article, for example, deals with the most common update problems in detail.
On the other hand, are you one of the unlucky ones who get the error message: “Your PC settings aren’t supported yet on this version of Windows 10.”? Together, we’ll try to shed some light on the issue.
The Background of the Error Message
The error message usually looks something like the screenshot. There it says “No upgrade to Windows 10 can be performed for this PC”. No further help follows, except that there might be a problem with your PC’s hardware or settings. Microsoft is apparently still working on fixing this bug itself.
Experience shows that especially Windows 10 Home in version 1903 or 1909 is affected by this bug – more rarely also Windows 10 Pro. “Your PC settings aren’t supported yet on this version of Windows 10.” Behind this is a basically proven procedure to prevent incompatible elements of your operating system for your own safety. The only difference is that your Windows update is completely prevented as a result.
Possible Solutions before the Update
Wait and see – at least that’s what Microsoft is asking at the moment. A new version of the update should follow as soon as possible to fix this error message. If you don’t want to sit around idly, you can take the following measures, which have already helped some users:
- Update all your hardware drivers and try again.
- Check if the core isolation is disabled by default. You can find it in Settings (Windows logo key + I), Update and Security, Windows Security under Device Security. If your Windows key does not work, we can recommend this guide.
- Disconnect your internet access just before the update process.
As you can already see, even the experts are still fishing in the dark as far as the solution to this error message is concerned. Even a restore or the reinstallation of an older Windows version does not help, but only costs additional time.
Of course, we’ll report back with an update as soon as Microsoft finally takes a stand. So far, however, the error message “Your PC settings aren’t supported yet on this version of Windows 10” remains almost as annoying as the famous activation watermark.
