    Upgrading Problem From Windows 8 to Windows 10

    I have a laptop with windows 8

    I did try to upgrade to windows 10 and it started downloading.

    It got to 12% and i closed the lid, when i opened the lid it was still at 12%, then after about an hour it was still at 12%

    I shut down and again once the computer had loaded up again

    When i selected upgrade, it didn't download anything, it just had a spinning loading icon and nothing else and back and next were greyed out.

    When i clicked on the close icon it would say "windows is cleaning the files before closing" or something and then get stuck on there?

    Windows 8 still seems to work (I think) Although I do get an error when i boot up now about something or other in the corner

    Whe3n you closed the lid, the laptop went to sleep suspending the update. All bets off after that

    Try downloading and creating an ISO then mount it and run setup.exe to start the upgrade.
