    I have tried a couple upgrades from Windows 8.1 to 10 on my old SSD, both failed. First one with a BSOD in ASMedia SATA driver, the second with a hang at the initializing account step. With this second attempt the installer somehow finished but various Modern Apps would not work (including Edge), but the hang on reboot was gone.

    After this I got my new Crucial BX100 SSD and I performed a clean install on it, no longer encountered the issue.

    I guess in my case it was either the display driver as several newer versions were released on Windows Update after Windows 10 was released to the public or one of the post-release Windows updates.
