    Win 10 Upgrade issues -


    I purchased a full version of Win10 Pro last week and upgraded today from Win 7 after several attempts. It seems to work okay but I was curious what version it was so I checked it use the winver command. It shows to be Version10.0 Build 10240. After a web search I learned that it is a very old version! My first thought is that my Dell computer purchased in Feb 16 with Win 7 was preloaded with Win10 OEM and somehow it was installed instead of the version I just purchased on a USB if that’s even possible OR the version I just purchased was waaayyy old. I tried to download an update but got an error code 0x80240fff.

    So here are my questions:

    1. Is there a way to confirm that the software I purchased is a recent version? Can it be determined from the product key?

    2. How can I upgrade to the latest version?


    I am not good with computers so any suggestions are appreciated.

    :)

    is hardware OK (Win 7) for upgrade to windows 10

    I think in one of the other PC with win 7 or win 8.1 I run media creators tools and in some step prompt/found graphics card not supported... for win 10. I didn't found alone reading specs of win 10, but the tool says me... after changed graphics card the tool said all OK and continued OK with upgrade... That I ask to reach this step in this current PC - win 7 - must be all OK for the upgrade? Or must continue to upgrade to show this?
    and got to point

    • UPGRADE this PC now
    • Create media(DVD, USB stick, ISO)
    is hardware OK (Win 7) for an upgrade to windows 10 for this PC???

    SCCM: In Place upgrade Win 7to win 10 1903 License issue

    I was working on one task sequence for In Place Upgrade. Win 10 1709 to Win 10 1903 is working fine.

    But Win 7 to Win 10 1903 is getting failed during Upgrade Operating System step.

    I checked some of the links and added the KMS Client Keys (NPPR9-FWDCX-D2C8J-H872K-2YT43) in upgrade operating system step.

    Also added one step to run vbs script.

    But Task Sequence is getting failed at this step.

    Command line Cscript.exe c:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs /ipk NPPR9-FWDCX-D2C8J-H872K-2YT43 returned 3221549136

    In my environment, we are using KMS and we don't have a Volume license.

    Any advise how to resolve this issue.

    Recommend hardware changes for upgrading from Win-7 to Win-10

    Bree
    I followed your suggestions (2nd Aug 19) for installing Win-10. Made the bootable flash drive successfully through the media creation tool. But when I attempted to upgrade and activate to Win-10 (64 bit) from within Win-7 (Pro-32 bit), I got the following error message:

    Error # OxC1900101-Ox20017. " The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during BOOT operation"

    I read the diagnostics under this error number and carried out the proposed fixes, i.e. update Win-7, uninstall Malwarebyte antivirus, disconnect all external hardware, e.g. printer, scanner, external hard drives. I then tried to repeat the steps to do the upgrade through the Win-10 bootable flash drive as before. Got the same error message.
    Appreciate any further comments and suggestions as to (a) what does a failure in the SAFE_OS during boot operation mean, (b) what can I do to solve it. Is this anything to do with the hardware in my computer? I listed these in my first posting above.
    Thanks for any help
