    Windows 10 install fails at OOBE - missing files in setup


    I'm having loads of issues installing Windows 10 on a Windows 7 machine.Ended up doing a clean install, have attempted a couple of dozen times, each time getting a little further.After some forum help and some BIOS tweeking, when I'm almost at the gate it keeps failing during OOBE.So I dig through the logs in C:\Windows\panther\UnattendGC\setupact.log after having to unlock them and it shows that setup is looking for files in a directory that does not exist.I am not sure how or why this problem exists, but an entire directory seems to be missing.

    Repeating OOBE setup for missed Windows 10 activation

    Settings > Update and security > Activation shows "Hardware has changed" but I didn't change anything.

    The device has just been unpacked.

    The seller says that if an activation is missed during OOBE, the device must be reset to the factory settings and the initial setup must be repeated.
