When a user starts a new Windows-based computer, or after they install a new Windows operating system, the Out-Of-Box Experience (OOBE) guides the user through various setup operations. OOBE is a series of screens that require customers to accept license agreements, connect to the internet, log in with, or sign up for a Microsoft Account (MSA), and share information with the OEM. The choices you make in your hardware and software determine how much work customers must do to complete OOBE before they can enjoy their new devices. In this article, you will learn about ways to go about “OOBESETTINGSMULTIPLEPAGE error on Windows 10”. Please see DISM Error 87: The package is unknown, and how to fix “Error 183: The specified image is currently being serviced by another DISM operation“.

Below is the error that is being prompted. This issue occurs because the specific timing of the OOBE process causes a deadlock situation. This issue does not involve hardware, and you can easily fix it. Please see the related article “OOBEZDP: Something went wrong during the Windows deployment“.


To resolve these issues, we have to perform the following step as shown below.

  • Click on Try again at the bottom of the screen as shown on the above screen. The OOBE process should continue as expected. But most times this does not work and the error is prompted again. In this case, use the second option below.
  • Since I am using a VM, I have decided to switch the VM off.

If you have a physical device, press and hold the power button until the system turns off, and then turn it on the system again. The OOBE process should resume and complete as expected. Please see how to fix “The package python-virtualenv has no installation candidate error, how to resolve DISM unspecified error when removing preinstalled packages, and how to fix the “Error Failed to create a scheduled task: The WS-Management service cannot process the request / find the microsoft.sme.Powershell session configuration in WSMan”.

This second option worked very fine for me and resumed the Windows update and was prompted to log in and was able to access Windows 10 again as you can see below.
