I have a bunch of windows 7 clients failing to install the New October Rollout Monthly updates microsoft is now pushing. I checked the CBS Log file and found this BFSVC: BfspCopyFile(C:\Windows\boot\PCAT\bootmgr, \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolume1\Boot\bootmgr) failed! (Attempt 2 of 60) Last Error = 0x70

If i run Diskpart i see this

DISKPART> list vol

  Volume 3     C   Windows7_OS  NTFS       Partition    111 GB       Healthy          System    

On systems that are working i see this for Diskpart

DISKPART> list vol

  Volume 1     F   CDROM              CDFS              CD-ROM      4094 KB      Healthy                                                                                                
  Volume 2         System Rese      NTFS               Partition    347 MB        Healthy         System                                                                                      
  Volume 3     C   Windows7_OS  NTFS               Partition    111 GB       Healthy          Boot    

How can i reassign boot and System? I ran the Active command for Partition 2 but after reboot still the same and after reboot windows assigns the 347MB partition a letter which i have to remove otherwise i get alot of alerts stating drive is full.

"ERROR_DISK_FULL112 (0x70)
There is not enough space on the disk."

I do not have any idea why the non-working PC's have labeled the drive as SYSTEM_DRV instead of System Reserved which is what they should be; nor do I know why they are full; but, that is what I think you need to pursue.  Set one active again and look at what is on the volume to see if you can SAFELY free up some space.

the update is looking at the wrong volume that is why it's saying not enough space.

Actually, no its not.  You yourself said you got a bunch of disk full messages when you enabled access to that drive.  What is it full of; that is the real question?

The machine has 14GB free and still was failing. I ran diskcleanup and check all boxes that has items over 1GB that freed some more space i pushed out the update again and it installed. How much free space do you need to install  KB3192403?

Had another machine with the same issue and it had 50GB of free space. After Remarking the C Partition Active and Running Disk Cleanup with the default settings the update installed.

Were you pushing the update to client pc's? Are you doing it via group policy? Gpupdate?

The path is indeed incorrect
