Hello @SuperConker,
Did you use boot disk?

I only used "Skip_TPM_Check_on_Dynamic_Update.cmd" to bypass the System Requirements
(and i also used "OfflineInsiderEnroll.cmd" to change Insider Level to the Canary Channel).

After this i went to Windows Update and clicked "Check for updates" in order to receive the 26063.1 Build.

The update installed successfully, but on the first reboot i got the following error:
"BOOTMGR Image is corrupt. The system cannot boot."


Is it possible to only use Windows Update to install 24H2?
Or is using a boot disk required to install 24H2?

I have not used this method up till now.
Please make a bootable usb as described in this and other thread, the link given already. I upgraded my pc from from desktop.
My hard drives have mbr partition style.
My desktop pc boots/identifies both usb types bios and uefi.
Please note that following steps are required to prepare bootable usb, manually.
Run CMD as administrator
C:\Windows\system32>Diskpart
DISKPART>List Disk
DISKPART>Select Disk #
DISKPART>clean
DISKPART>convert mbr
DISKPART>create partition primary size=2048
DISKPART>create partition primary
DISKPART>select partition 1
DISKPART>format fs=fat32 quick label="BOOT"
DISKPART>assign letter=x
DISKPART>active
DISKPART>select partition 2
DISKPART>format fs=ntfs quick label="INSTALL"
DISKPART>assign letter=y
DISKPART>exit
1. Extract bypass11 compressed zip folder to NTFS (INSTALL) Partition. All six files are extracted to root partition Y: We can copy and paste these files in Y:
2. These files are namely auto, AutoUnattend, Quick_11_iso_esd_wim_TPM_toggle, readme.md, Skip_TPM_Check_on_Dynamic_Update , windows_update_refresh.
3. Mount iso of Windows 11 24H2.
Copy all files from mounted iso except ,sources folder , to Fat 32 partition.
Manually create "sources "folder here.
Copy all files from mounted iso to NTFS partition. Cut boot.wim from sources folder and paste it into sources folder which we manually created in Fat32 partition.

Hello @SuperConker
1. Today I downloaded iso of canary channel from Microsoft official website which is Windows11_InsiderPreview_Client_x64_en-us_26058
2. I just drag and drop this iso on to file Quick_11_iso_esd_wim_TPM_toggle, the TPM patch added.
3. I mounted this patched iso on virtual drive and run setup.exe as administrator.
4. I selected the disk/drive/partition where insider preview build 26063 was already installed.
5. Installation stared and after completion , it booted well with no problem.
6. Please see the images of new os (canary channel Windows 11 Pro activated with digital license linked to microsoft account.)
Thanks @SuperConker
Thanks to all.

Doing an in-place upgrade from the desktop don't work for me for some reason.

Just like when using Windows Update, it just corrupts the BOOTMGR upon the first reboot:

A-Disk-Read-Error-Occurred.png

Updating from 23H2 to another version of 23H2 works fine (like the CU updates).

But updating from 23H2 to 24H2 causes the BOOTMGR to get corrupted for some reason.


If i manually repair the BOOTMGR, i automatically get taken back to 23H2 (instead of 24H2).

So i wonder if Microsoft has done more than to just add the PopCnt/SSE4.2 requirement?

Hello @SuperConker
Try using boot disk of 24H2 prepared by above methods.
Do run file 'auto' as administrator. Installation starts, cancel it at 0%.
Your boot disk is ready. Boot from BIOS. Clean install 24 H2, keeping all data safe, even though option is not available.
Please refer to post #23 and then post #11.
Please backup everything needed for safety.
Or You may try on 80 to 100 gb partition keeping 23H2 in drive.(post#12, steps 2 and 3.)
This should solve the issue.
Thanks.

I just figured out why Windows 11 24H2 causes the error message i was having.

For some reason, 24H2 has a bug where if your boot-drive is an MBR partition,
and you connect a secondary drive that is GPT partition (with just data on it).

Well then Windows 11 24H2 will not boot any more, and will give you this error:
"BOOTMGR Image is corrupt. The system cannot boot."


If i unplug the GPT drive, then Windows 11 24H2 will start up like normal again
(and if i plug it back in the error comes back).


I have tested it several times now, with the same exact result.

Even did a fresh install of the Official version of 23H2, and was able to update to 24H2 with no issues.

But if i plug in my GPT drives (i have 4 GPT drives with just data on them) then the error comes back.


This is a pretty huge bug with 24H2 that i hope Microsoft will fix very soon
(this does not happen on 23H2, only on 24H2).

Good detective work :thumbsup:

Yes, this certainly sounds like a bug. But I don't expect it's one MS would go our of their way to fix, and quite possibly are not even aware it exists.

An MBR boot drive for Windows 11 is an unsupported configuration, I'm afraid :(

I wonder what caused having an MBR boot-drive (along with GPT data-drives) to break, in 24H2?

This combination has been working fine through all versions of Windows 11 (except for 24H2).


Also found out that connecting a GPT drive after Windows have booted up, works just fine for some reason.

I wonder what caused having an MBR boot-drive (along with GPT data-drives) to break, in 24H2?

This combination has been working fine through all versions of Windows 11 (except for 24H2).


Also found out that connecting a GPT drive after Windows have booted up, works just fine for some reason.
Hello @SuperConker
Have you installed 24H2 on GPT drive?
The whole process took less than an hour, for upgradation and installation on MBR partition in my case.

The computer i run Windows 11 on only supports booting from drives with MBR partitions,
but you can still use secondary drives with GPT on it (just not on the boot drive).

Do you also get the same bug if you connect a secondary drive? (with GPT on it).

Hello @SuperConker
I have HDD 1TB and SSD 1TB in my pc.
Both MBR partition style.
I upgraded from 23H2 to 24H2 and installed 24H2 on HDD drive on both partitions.
and I replaced insider preview by canary channel on SSD drive.
So now my pc has two insider preview 24 H2 operating systems on HDD, on two different partitions, MBR style.
And one canary channel 24 H2 os on SSD, MBR style
In my case no bug of mbr/gpt partition style for 24H2.
Try changing boot sequence, keeping mbr drive as first boot sequence, after you have applied/ installed 24H2 on mbr drive.
Have you used boot disk? This boot disk works for both styles MBR & GPT.
Thanks.

I have found that First boot sequence from HDD is identifying both dives in boot menu. No error to boot from SSD when clicked in boot menu on SSD keeping HDD 1TB as first boot sequence.
But if I change First boot sequence to SSD as shown in image then BIOS halts and restarts at ZEBRONICS logo. No boot from SSD wherin I have installed canary channel 24H2.
But canary channel on SSD is booting well from HDD as first boot sequence.
Please have a look at images.
Boot menu shows all 3 OS names and boot entries when HDD is selected as First Boot Choice. All three Windows 11 v24 H2 installations are working perfectly when selected from HDD as first option.
Volume 6 is SSD. It has capacity of 128 GB.When clicked boots well for HDD as first boot sequence.
Thanks.

Could you test the following with only two drives, and see if it gives a boot-error?

C:\ drive = MBR (Windows 11 24H2)
D:\ drive = GPT (no Windows)

On a LGA-1366 system (which only supports legacy/MBR boot) this combination gives me a boot-error.

Hello @SuperConker
Should I format SSD, I can. Then boot from HDD? as first boot sequence keeping SSD attached? with GPT on SSD?
Should I use third party tool to convert MBR on SSD to GPT?
Or just empty SSD by converting it to GPT from CMD?
Converting SSD from MBR to GPT, keeping HDD is not booting.
Even my pc halts and restarts from logo.
No boot.

So now I am using boot disk from UEFI mode and deleting partitions on SSD I am fresh installing 24H2 on SSD in GPT mode.
I will post the update on this work in some few minutes.
HDD is still in MBR mode.

Install and boot Windows 24H2 from SSD (MBR).

Then format hard drive inside Windows (as GPT).

Boot order:
1. SSD (MBR) Windows 11 24H2
2. HDD (GPT)


And after a restart, maybe you will get this error too:
"BOOTMGR Image is corrupt. The system cannot boot."

Install and boot Windows 24H2 from SSD (MBR).

Then format hard drive inside Windows (as GPT).

Boot order:
1. SSD (MBR) Windows 11 24H2
2. HDD (GPT)


And after a restart, maybe you will get this error too:
"BOOTMGR Image is corrupt. The system cannot boot."
A lot of data on Hdd. Leaving it as it is.
Converting Ssd to gpt and installing 24h2.
Installed 24 H2 on ssd(gpt) and booted well to desktop.
No hdd choice in bios boot menu.
Now I am reinstalling 24 h2 from boot disk on hdd(mbr)
I will set then hdd (mbr ) as first boot.
So according to your boot choice, first mbr boot choice, let us see whether it boots into both drives, mbr and gpt correctly or not?
It should not halt/hang anywhere in booting.
I have selected one off two partitions(mbr), installation going on 42%...58%.. 62%.. PC restarted.. 93%..just a moment... spinning circle...starting country..India..... US.. Skip...

Pc restarted....
Selected new os partition from boot menu...
(Boot menu shows both drives..)
Continue...
Set up for personal use... Sign in... Microsoft account... Password...
Create Pin.. Entered pin...
Set up as new pc.. Skip... Phone link... Skip... Only save files to this pc....
Finally booted to desktop, No problem.
Restarting pc, HDD (MBR) as first boot choice.
If ssd(gpt ) is selected to boot from displayed menu, it went back to boot menu. It did not boot to ssd(gpt).
Here I made a trick.
From disk management, I assigned a letter to basic data partition as G:, then made ssd offline and then restarted pc, changed the boot sequence to windows boot manager(evm ssd) first boot option.
Surprisingly it booted to ssd(gpt) windows 24H2.

Again I changed boot order from ssd to hdd as first boot sequence.
Selected SSD TO BOOT, but it is going back to main menu.
So I am booting to hdd partition now, it booted well.
Right click start>disk management >see image attatched, it shows offline.
Now I am restarting pc, changing boot order to windows boot manager(evm ssd).... It booted well to ssd os 24 H2 desktop.
I think, both MBR &GPT are well to boot 24H2.
The only change we have to make is make SSD(GPT) offline from disk management after booting from HDD(MBR) style. Then restart pc, change windows boot manager(evm ssd) as first boot. Then save changes and boot to SSD (GPT) OS 24H2.
Please see last image it shows both drives online when booted from windows boot manager (evm ssd).
1.So make GPT drive offline from OS booted from HDD drive using disk management. Reboot to bios, make windows boot manager(evm ssd) as first boot sequence. Then you directly get os installed on ssd, without boot menu choice.
2. To explore ssd(gpt) in This PC, make online from disk management.
3. From HDD first boot sequence, SSD(GPT) does not boot, though boot entry of GPT drive is available in display boot menu.
4. From windows boot manager(evm SSD) OS 24H2 boots directly.

So @SuperConker, what is your and experts's opinion?
Thank you all.

Summary
1. Install/upgrade to Windows 11 v24H2 os build 26063 on MBR &GPT Hard drives using boot disk which is prepared by above mentioned steps, please.
2. First boot from os installed/upgraded to 24H2 on HDD(MBR) Drive.
3. Make GPT drive offline from disk management. Assign letter to GPT drive basic data partition, if not displayed.
4. Restart pc, in BIOS select windows boot manager (GPT drive) as first boot sequence. Please note Boot option #1 should be windows boot manager (GPT). Plain GPT choice does not work.
5. After selecting windows boot manager (GPT drive), pc directly boots into gpt partition with installed os 24 H2.
6. If want to boot pc in MBR mode, change bios sequence to MBR Drive as first boot sequence.
7. Thus we can boot into 24H2 in any one partition style if we have two different drives with different partition styles.
8. Previously I had two Windows 11v24 H2 build 26063 on two different partitons on Toshiba HDD. I need not install Windows 11 v24H2 on second partition, in above installtion the boot entry of second partition automatically added to display boot menu.
9. Now my pc has HDD with two 24H2 installed on two partitions. And one os of Windows 11 v24 H2 on SSD.

Thanks.
