Attempting to run Windows 10 Update Assistant for Windows 10 Creator’s update failed with error 0x80070241.

SomethingWentWrong

Checking C:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\Panther\setuperr.log we find the following errors:

SP     CMountWIM::DoExecute: Failed to mount WIM file C:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\SafeOS\winre.wim. Error 0x80070241[gle=0x00000241]

So I attempted to mount the C:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\SafeOS\winre.wim manually. This failed, checking log file at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log we find the following errors:

[3280] [0x80070241] OpenFilterPort:(408): Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source.

These errors are a known issue when using Windows ADK 1703 with Secure Boot Enabled.

Disabling Secure Boot, or uninstalling Windows ADK 1703 fixes the issue.

If disabling secure boot and you have BitLocker enabled, ensure you have BitLocker recovery key before disabling. (i.e. manage-bde -protectors -get C: )

If disabling secure boot, recommend it is re-enabled after update is complete.
