    Did you manage to find anything in the logs?

    Sounds like it's just going to keep tripping up over whatever the problem is

    Try clearing all your temp folders, uninstall drivers, monitoring programs, anything that might interfere with the upgrade

    Disconnect non necessary hardware

    Run sfc /scannow from elevated CMD

    Try to fix your original OS before upgrading, 10 is seeing something it doesn't like

    To anyone having issues starting the update tool (aka: Cannot start windows 10 setup, reboot PC and try again).

    First, Install and run http://www.thewindowsclub.com/downloading-fixwu

    Then just install a random important update (I'm sure you have one :D) from windows update, restart, and boom! that fixed it for me =)!

    Installed fine on a patrician HDD (No space on my SSD) using the iso downloaded from the force update app, seems nice ....

    God damn do I not miss having OS on HDDs

    It actually tried to reboot this time, but failed and said their was a safeOS error of some kind and restored the windows to the original installation.

    So, now I am running the SFC thingy.

    Other than that the system is pretty much clean anyway, as I uninstalled everything prior to doing this.

    EDIT:

    I have corrupt system registry files which are irrecoverable - So, I'm ****ed

    lets the testing begin, Legacy bios with no sercure are fine correct and OS will work??

    As for the person that mention OS on HDD oh god can do that on my personal computers, I have computer /laptops that use HDD for the OS and there unbearable imo.

    First gona test in VM before tempting faith, Kinda amazed I getting 80mbits down on the download would think there internet would have heart attack today

    btw Pro vs Pro N what is differences? or that version with out IE/?

    Even better Retail key from 7 can still be transfer to new pc when

    And it is ativated. Dunno what happend, just noticed now.

    I have no problems so far.

    Dark souls seems to be smoother, and believe me, that game is a hammer on the cpu so i think they did something good behind the scenes with w10.

    It´s also quite a bit faster to boot and reach desktop.

    Upgrading from ISO or USB will create that folder too

    that makes sense then I created an ISO to store, then dumped a contents on to a USB, in process of doing VM to makes sure the iso works correct before try on really hardware

    I will give it some days (maybe weeks) before jumping to W10, just to be safe from some possible headaches.

    However I'm curios, I have a valid Windows 7 Ultimate key and a Winows 8 Pro Upgrade key, will I be able to make a USB Windows 10 install stick which I can use in the future to do clean installs?
