See this link, How to Refresh Windows 10.
Oh, yes, this is what I did. I did it while keeping personal files. Short of wiping everything out and starting completely from scratch, I don't know what else to try. Although I doubt that would work anyway.

I had the same problem. I tried everything. My machine which was from 2010, would not update to 1703. I got so frustrated I went back to Windows 7 Ultimate. Which is a shame because I really liked Windows 10 Pro. I wonder if Microsoft is trying to get users to buy new computers with Windows 10 pre-installed? retiredlearner great article. I tried everything pertaining to updating, but it didn't work on my machine.
Try Downloading Windows 10 and keep your personal files and see if that method will allow your system to upgrade to build 1703.
I have tried everything in this thread and some this I found on other sites. I've reinstalled Windows, used the creators update tool, a windows update repair tool, everything I could find. Nothing has worked. The stupid update tried yet again last night and again failed and this evening it's attempting again as I type this on my phone. I have no hope it will work.
Have a read through this link to see if there is any help:
How to Upgrade to Windows 10 Version 1709 or 1703 (Fall Creators Update or Creators Update) Using ISO File from Versions 1607, 1511 or 1507
Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see whether you have tried all the suggestions.
I've tried these. I saw the mention about the one intel chip. While I don't have an Atom, my PC is from 2005. Would that be an issue? When I ran the windows update tool, it checked my system and didn't report any issues.
I would think a 12 year old comp could be pushing the envelope a bit. The UEFI Bios maybe the missing part.
Nah, that's not it. My 2009 PC also doesn't have a UEFI Bios, and 1703 is installed just fine.
Have you checked this: Check this List to Determine if Your Computer is Compatible with the Windows 10 Creators Update or Anniversary Update or Not.
I'm sorry, not sure where I got the 2005 date from. My PC is only 6 years old. At any rate, my PC is a Gateway and I didn't see it listed but I did download that trouble shooter to hopefully stop the 1703 update. Don't know if I got it in time as it was already downloading the update yet again. It seems to be trying every day now. It was so bad when it was only once a month but it's been every day for the past 3 days. You'd think somewhere at Microsoft it'd say "hey, we've tried 7 times to force this update through, maybe we should stop." I mean, after I have to manually restart my computer when it freezes each time, it reverts to the previous version.
So I have an issue I had earlier. The PC downloaded the 1703 update after I ran that program to block the update. It was downloading as I was downloading and running it. So I thought maybe I should reboot my computer to clear it out or something. Well, it completely froze. Tried 3 times to reboot and didn't work. I'm now reinstalling windows again.
Which Windows 10 edition you have? Home, Pro?
Home, the free version. Also, after re-installing Windows again, when I try to start a game, I'm getting an error message that I'm missing a file; d3dx9_33.dll
Have you tried a Restart?
Run sfc /scannow?
Did both. SFC didn't find any errors.
Have you overclocked for gaming?
Have a D3dx9_33.dll Error? Here's How to Fix It
No, never overclocked it. Ran Dxdiag and said I had 12. I found a link to update DirectX and thought I'd try it anyway. It seemed to update some files. I rebooted and now the game and others run okay. I also ran the Win update show/hide program and hid anything that mentioned the creators update so I hope this solves the issue.
Can you see if you have any of these log files:
I don't have a C:\$Windows.~BT\sources\panther folder but do have a C:\Windows\Panther path and C:\Windows\Panther\Rollback. I have a setupact.log and setuperr.log in C:\Windows\Panther but Rollback has none of those files.
