  1. Windows 7 To Windows 10 Upgrade Problem


    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]I have an unusual situation, but one that I am hoping someone can help me with.[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]My pc has multiple hard disks. Each one has a power switch that can be operated when the system is powered off to select which will boot. Only one disk is powered on at a time. All of the hardware and OS are the same. In other words, I have one monitor, one printer, one motherboard, etc. All of my disks are 1 TB 7200 RPM SATA III drives. Most are from Seagate. All of the OS's are Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, same key/license etc. The only difference from one drive to another is the assortment of software. For example, one has Office 2016 Home and Business, another has Office 2000 Pro, another Office 2010 Home and Business, etc.[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]I have successfully loaded Windows 10 as an Upgrade onto 3 of my 7 drives. I am trying to load it onto drive number 4. So far, it always fails after reaching 100%.[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]Oddly, there are no reboots attempted before 100%. The other 3 did actually reboot a few times before reaching 100%.[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]Instead of rebooting and continuing, it just get the error window "Windows 10 Setup: Windows 10 Installation has failed."[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]I have tried switching from DVD-R with ISO on it to USB Flash and also tried online upgrade.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]I have tried disconnecting from internet by removing the RJ-45 plug / cable.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]I have tried asking for updates and also not asking for updates.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]I have turned off my printer and everything else attached to the pc.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]I have updated Windows 7 with Windows Update until there are no more updates to update.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]I have manually updated Windows 7 Servicing Stack from Windows Catalog till there are no more updates for this feature.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]I have adjusted partitions to make sure that there is 512 MB of unallocated space between partition C and partition E so that Win 10 can create its recovery partition.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]I have made sure both C and E primary partitions both on same hard disk have lots of freespace.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]I have run chkdsk /f /r /x on both partitions. C completed with no errors, E ran until it was checking freespace and I stopped it because I would have to have grandchildren to see it finish.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]I used Paragon Hard Disk Manager Advanced 17.20 to "fix" crosslinked files on C and E. I don't know if there really are any or if it really fixed anything.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]I removed every startup program except my audio driver.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]I removed any non-essential programs.[/COLOR]
    I have added SURT and the latest Intel chipset drivers.

    I have tried installing from an older version ISO on DVD-R.

    I have tried doing a clean boot before attempting install.

    All of the above did not make any visible difference.


    I then switched the SATA cable from the P67X SATA III port that the drive was connected to and instead used a P67X SATA II port that was previously connected to a drive that successfully upgraded to Windows 10.


    When I booted with the SATA II cable attached, I finally got an error message with a code.


    It stated, "We couldn't install Windows 10


    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1] We've set your PC back to the way it was right before you started installing Windows 10.[/COLOR]

    0x80004005 - 0x1000A

    The installation failed in the DOWNLEVEL phase with an error during PREPARE_FIRST_BOOT operation "


    A smaller window that said," You must restart your computer to apply these changes

    Before restarting, save any open files and close all programs. "

    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1] [/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]There may be more things I tried. It has become a blur at this time.[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]I cannot fathom why this one drive will not upgrade when the 3 others before worked perfectly and seamlessly.[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]Help please. Can someone knowledgeable, please look at my logfiles and tell me if there is any clue in them.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]I do not know how to interpret them or what to do next. Please tell me where to upload them to.[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgba51, 51, 51, 1]TIA[/COLOR]

    :)

    Windows 10 upgrade problem, no input accepted

    I really hate having to come here and ask for help, but I really am stumped. It hurts my geek pride. I have a PC with fairly modern hardware in it. It has a p8p67 pro in it. I have tried upgrading windows 10 on it twice now. Both times I have had the same result.

    After windows finishes upgrading it goes to the log in/set up screen. I can't do anything. No keyboard or mouse input is accepted.

    I will list some, or hopefully all, of the troubleshooting steps I have tried:
    • Move keyboard and mouse to different USB ports.
    • Try different keyboard or mouse.
    • Restart computer, repeatedly.
    • Google for related issues.
    • Update Bios, because why not.
    • Create boot media and revert to windows 7.
    The windows 10 system restore boot media works fine with keyboard and mouse. All USB ports work in windows 7. I don't know what is wrong. I suspect that windows 10 is lacking a driver of some sort, but since the computer accepts no input I have no way of checking for which driver let alone installing it.

    Please help me figure this out. If I have to revert back to windows 7 again, I am not going to get it upgraded to windows 10. Thank you in advanced.

    i've seen this when the stock USB drivers went kaput. Only ever seen it once - i used a PCI USB 2.0 card and connected the mouse and keyboard to that, and manually updated the USB 2/USB 3 drivers.

  4. Windows 7 To Windows 10 Upgrade Problem

    Installing Windows 10 using Windows 7 key

    Nope, you need to install Windows 10 first and make sure the Windows 7 key is transferred to your Windows account after you've installed Windows 10 (not quite sure how that works). I missed the last step and I could not activate Windows 10 after a re-install... Microsoft seem to have done everything they can to make it a PITA. Also, it's technically too late to do this now anyhow, as the upgrade offer has expired. But KMSPico works quite well...

    As for getting rid of Windows, delete the Windows folder.
