Windows 10 Upgrade error code 0xc7700112

If you check the C:\Windows10Upgrade\upgrader_default.log, you may see a message – Error  Setup Platform Initialize failed with result 0xc7700112. This error code indicates that the setup can’t continue because there are traces of an earlier setup installation attempt within the Boot Configuration Data file. You, therefore, need to remove the orphaned Windows Setup entries from the BCD store.

To fix Windows 10 Update error 0xc7700112, we will be removing orphaned Windows Setup Entries from BCD Store.

Remove orphaned Windows Setup Entries from BCD Store

For this, start by pressing WINKEY + X button combo or right-click on the Start button and click on Command Prompt (Admin) or just search for cmd in the Cortana search box, right click on the Command Prompt icon and click on Run as Administrator. Click on Yes for the UAC or User Account Control prompt that you get. Then, the Command Prompt window will finally be open. Now, type in the following command and then hit Enter,

bcdedit /enum all

You can now get all this data into a TXT file for our further reference using this command,

bcdedit /delete > <PATH>

For example, you can enter bcdedit /enum all > D:\bcdConfig.txt in order to store the TXT file in the D: partition of your computer’s Hard drive.

The identifier under the section for Device Options with a description of Windows Setup are the files that are left over from a previous installation and are blocking the upgrade path for Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant.

Copy down the appropriate identifier’s name and enter it in the following command in the Command Prompt,

bcdedit /delete {The name of the appropriate identifier}

For example, you can enter bcdedit /delete {asd951bf-b7b8-4885-951a-fa03044f5d71} and hit Enter .

You need to repeat this step for every appropriate identifier.

Then finally rebooyour computer and run Command Prompt again.

Now, enter the following command just to check if all those entries are really gone or some are left,

bcdedit /enum all

Now try to run the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant again and check if that fixed your error.

If this does not help you may use the Media Creation Tool or download latest Windows 10 ISO from Microsoft servers and make a bootable USB drive and use it.
