What to do if You’re Unable to Install Windows 10 Due to an Error 0x800704DD-0x90016
Log off from your current Windows account.
Log in with Windows Administrator account.
Try to upgrade to Windows 10 using the Media Creation tool and Windows 10 ISO.
If you don’t have Administrator account you can create one by following these steps:
Press Windows Key + R.
When the Run dialog opens, type cmd and press Enter.
When Command Prompt opens type the following line and press Enter to run it:
net user administrator /active:yes
If you want, you can set a password for administrator account by typing:
net user administrator *
After doing that you should get password prompt where you can enter your desired password
Solve it is to follow these steps:
Press Windows key and R at the same time. This will open Run window
Enter the following command into Run, and press Enter:
RunDll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll
This will open Safely Remove Hardware dialog, from this dialog, you can select the device you want to remove, and remove it, by clicking on Stop safely remove hardware windows 10
We hope that this problem won’t happen more than once, but if it does happen again, you can create a Desktop shortcut to Safely Remove Hardware dialog, so you don’t have to launch it from Run every time. To create this shortcut, just follow the instructions:
Right-click on Desktop, and go to New>Shortcut
Enter the following location of the shortcut:
RunDll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dllsafely remove hardware error windows 10
Click Next, and rename it to Safely Remove Hardware
That would be all, I hope that problem with Safely Remove Hardware icon disappearance won’t bother you more than once. Tell us in the comments, do you prefer to ‘use’ Safely Remove Hardware button when you’re removing your USB (or some other peripheral), or you just pull it out?
