    Installation Fail "We couldn't update The System Reserve Partition"


    This is the 2nd system (my wife's computer) we want to run Windows 10. Currently that system is running windows
    7 Pro. The first system system went without a single hitch and it was running windows 7 Pro as well.. The download was complete so I was ready for the upgrade. I started the installation and the first thing I got the comment "We couldn't update The System Reserve Partition". I cannot find any documentation on this message. Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

    That means the System Reserved parition is too small and needs to be expanded. I found this, it's for upgrading to 8.1 but the fix will be the same for upgrade to 10: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...f-d358ba19eb38

    Found near the bottom of the thread.

    There isn't anything wrong with his MBR. That won't help to fix this. He just needs to use MiniTool Partition Wizard, right inside his running Windows, to shrink the operating system partition by 350meg and add it to the system reserve partition.
