    Upgrade from Win7 to Win 10 failure


    When using a genuine Microsoft supplied flash drive to upgrade from a registered version of Win 7 Pro

    All updates checked and installed, starts "checking system" process then generates error message: "Setup has failed to validate the product key"

    Can not do clean install due to a pre-installed proprietary business application,

    Have tried numerous times with same result. Assistant does not recognize the error message

    Any thoughts on how to move forward?

    :)

  3. problem on upgrading from win7 professional to win 10

    i have this problem on upgrading from win7 professional to win 10. When windows update check for programs not compatible with win 10 list the following : microsoft virtual pc 2007 sp1 and

    virtual pc 2007 sp1

    and ask permission to remove both. I granted permission and the first was successfully removed but for the last windows update ask to remove it manually. The little problem is that this program dont exist and never existed on my machine. i reinstalled micrososoft
    virtual pc upgraded to sp1 unistalled reboot but without any luck. Checked registry List of programs installed menu start all i can think of no istance of this program. I search on google the only virtual pc 2007 sp1 is the microsoft version so i am blocked
    on this issue. Any suggestion? Thanks in advance.

  4. Upgrade from Win7 to Win 10 failure

    Perform upgrade to win7 ultimate OEM copy to Win 10 pro but keep using Win7 Ultimate, Win 8.1 and New Win 10 in triple boot

    Hello Frank,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    We understand your concern in this regard.

    • What do you mean by this statement "If I purchased the win 10 pro upgrade USB retail, cloned my win7 install to another hard drive on the same computer and use the Upgrade Win10 USB to upgrade "cloned" win 7 install to win 10 would I have a license to all
      3 products"?
    • You mean upgrading Windows 7 or installing on different partition?

    I appreciate if you could simplify your query with an example, so that we'll analyze the issue and guide you accordingly.
