    Glad to know its helpful! Marking as solved.


    Hi Jitesh, Thanks for that Man.

    Now, I am able to find out why it is failing. Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.2.4 was on the machine and it is not compatible with Win10 20h2 and so, stopping on feature update to proceed.

    I got this info from the following location.
    c:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\Panther\ CompatData_2021_04_30_17_29_19_3_006f0018.xml”

    This link : https://www.anoopcnair.com/windows-10-deployment-upgrade-process-logs/ helped me to got more on it.

    Many Thanks,
