John-S4R: Thank you very much for contacting the Intel® communities. We will do our best in order to provide the information you are looking for.
In this case, the problem seems to be related to Windows itself in reference to the settings. There should be a setting to stop Windows from asking to do the update, but in order to get that information the best thing to do will be to get in contact with Microsoft directly:
Additionally, I found a link where you can see further details about this subject that might be helpful:

John, I have a theory...
Did you perhaps start with a previous version of Windows, say Windows 7 in non-UEFI mode, and then upgrade it to Windows 10? Alternatively, did you install Windows 10 with UEFI disabled in the BIOS? I believe that the 1703 version absolutely requires that UEFI be enabled and in use. If, because of the choices made previously, you do not have UEFI enabled, this would explain the issue you are seeing. Unfortunately, if I am correct, you may have to reinstall Windows, from scratch, with UEFI enabled.
To ascertain whether I am correct or not - and you are currently running in non-UEFI mode - you should contact Microsoft and ask them if this is indeed a requirement.
Thanks for the advice. I did the recommendation to prevent future install of update 1703. At first it did not seem to work because it was still in the list. But with my last restart it did not appear in the update list. Thanks for the advice.
I installed windows 10 in UEFI mode. No other versions pre-installed. It was a clean installation. However because of a prior error message I used the Intel Integrator Toolkit to fill in the manufacturer and product name. This was a solution @kulmi84 and dougho provided.
Could this cause the error I am receiving now?
When I searched on winload.efi it showed the following files:
especially the amd64 seems strange because I have a NUC running with an intel processor. I also see that the orriginal efi file was 1.323 KB and some of the more recent files are 1.363 KB. Anyone a suggestion on how to fix this without having to reinstall Windows 10.
I have no thoughts about this, except that I wanted to clarify that the past msg mentioning modification of manufacturer and product (in order to complete install of 1703) was for a specific older NUC which had unusual values in those two fields. That old NUC was DN2820FYKH which was around third generation (yours is sixth generation).
Mine had no values at all. When I entered those values it continued installation until my current error.
But thanks for your reply anyway.
