    "A current driver on your PC may be better than the driver were trying to install. We'll keep trying to install"

    i have tried Windows media creation tool/Windows update assistant, and everytime when its time to restart, it tells me "undoing changes" then it reboots

    So what is the actual problem? Are you trying to force install an older driver that actually works better for you?

    Or are you trying to install the latest version of Win 10 and it is failing?

    One way around it is to use the Media Creation Tool to Generate a DVD or USB memory stick. Then boot with that and choose a Custom Install; erasing the C partition. ( you recognize the partition is C because of it's size ) However, you must have backups of your data and installation programs and product keys.

    However,

    Keep in mind that if you use Media Creation Tool, you will not get the Windows 10 hardware/software specs check test, which you WOULD get through Windows Update, so proceed at your own risk with MCT. Have you been offered what I assume is Windows 10 Build 1903 through Windows Update? If you haven't, your system isn't quite ready for it, hence the possible issues. By going through Windows Update instead of MCT it will make sure that your hardware and drivers are matched up to your machine. There are some issues with build 1903 for those trying to do MCT installs.
