I am trying to update on a Dell Inspiron 15 that came with Win 8.1 single language. The laptop is BRAND NEW. I just uninstalled Dell crapware and resized the partition.

All tries, whether through the regular update channel or through the media creation tool have failed. Even tried the ISO download, but it fails at around 25% with the something happened error.

I even followed all the steps outlined in this forum, where a fellow user had the exact same problem, to no avail: Failed four different strategies to upgrade to Win10 - Page 2 - Windows 10 Forums

Some help would be very appreciated.
