    We couldn't update the system reserved partition


    The update automatically tries to install but I keep getting this. It says Windows 10 couldn't be installed. We couldn't update the system reserved partition. Several times I got error code: 8000FFFF.
    I'm trying to update a Dell Optiplex 780 with Windows 7 Pro. SP1

    We couldn't update the system reserved partition!

    Hello, I understand there may already have been same title post in Microsoft community etc but nothing worked out out of all those I found, I tried to do the command prompt way with you know ,assigning letter to system reserved part of drive and the other
    stuff but to no avail. it doesn't seem to work, as in the Y (system reserved) drive there's only 2 files, cant make em not hidden no matter how hard I tried, I need to access boot folder to delete all languages except English as described here:

    READ THIS LINK
    . Sorry if I'm not writing English all that well it's my 3rd language.
    What I'm trying to do already several days is to update my Windows 7 to Windows 10, but every time I try all I get is:

    NO -- it isn't. There are numerous posts in this forum about folks doing an upgrade to an existing Win7 system that has the default 100MB System Reserved partition.

    Right -- and without doing the Upgrade first, they will never be able to activate their Win10 install.

    I downloaded the Windows 10 ISO and installed 3 computers. Two of them gave the not enough room error and wouldn't do the update, but installed fine using the ISO.
