Cause of An Error “This PC Can’t Be Upgraded to Windows 10, Your PC Has Hardware That Isn’t Ready For This Version of Windows 10”

In case you have an external USB device, SD memory card or UFS card attached while installing Windows 10, version 1903, you may receive an error  “This PC Can’t Be Upgraded to Windows 10, Your PC Has Hardware That Isn’t Ready For This Version of Windows 10.” This is caused by inappropriate drive reassignment during installation. An external USB device, SD memory card or UFS card that is attached to the computer could cause inappropriate drive reassignment on Windows 10-based computers during the installation of the Windows 10, version 1903. For this reason, there is an update hold on computers from receiving the Windows 10, version 1903 when this is detected. This generates the error message that is mentioned in the “Symptoms” section if the upgrade is tried again on an affected computer.

Scenario: An update to Windows 10, version 1903 is attempted on a computer that has a thumb drive inserted into its USB port. Before the update, the thumb drive is mounted in the system as drive G based on the existing drive configuration. After the feature update is installed; however, the device is reassigned a different drive letter (e.g., drive H).

Note: The drive reassignment is not limited to removable drives. Internal hard drives may also be affected. To safeguard your update experience, we have applied a hold on devices with an external USB device or SD memory card attached from being offered Windows 10, version 1903 until this issue is resolved.

Workaround to Fix “This PC Can’t Be Upgraded to Windows 10, Your PC Has Hardware That Isn’t Ready For This Version of Windows 10” Error

To fix this error, remove all external media, such as USB devices, SD cards, and UFS cards, from your computer and restart installation of the Windows 10, version 1903 feature update. The update should then proceed normally. If you are using an installation media (USB flash drive, DVD, or ISO file) created by a tool to install Windows 10, copy the files on the installation media to your local drive, and then start the installation from the local drive.
