  • Is it possible to download and inject the latest windows setup.exe updates for windows 10 into my install media?

  • Hi,

    The main issue is that present Symantec version is not compatible with the Windows 10 1703 version as a result the upgrade failed. But updating Symantec to the latest version will resolve the issue and you want to add the Symantec update package to the upgrade ISO to resolve the issue, right?

    When you upgrade device with an install image, computer will auto check if the current software is compatibility with the Windows 10 1703 firstly, the customized ISO won’t take effect during that time. The added update package won’t take effect until the upgrade process is successful and we boot the machine for the first time.

    So adding the Symantec update package to the upgrade ISO won’t resolve the issue. Your best bet is to update Symantec Endpoint Protection to the latest Windows 10 1703 compatibility edition from Symantec website then perform the upgrade.

    If I have misunderstood the issue please feel free to let me know that.

    Best regards,
