    Windows 8.1

    Trouble upgrading to windows 10 from 8.1

    I've been trying many times to upgrade to Windows 10 from 8.1 but every time I get to the phase where my computer restarts to apply the changes it will fail at around 3% and revert back to 8.1. There is an error message that it says I can search for but I haven't been able to write it down yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    There are 2 ways to upgrade to Windows 10.

    1. By way of Windows Update.
    2. By way of using a downloaded iso file.

    Which one were you using ?
    If you were using method #1 and unable to complete, try method #2.........................

    Use the Tech Bench link below and download the iso file.


    Scroll down to Select Edition > click the pointer at the right and select your edition of Windows 10 > click Confirm.
    Click the pointer and select Language > make sure you pick the same language the computer is now running > click Confirm
    Select the bit version, 32 or 64-bit. Make sure you select the same bit version as the computer is now running.
    At the bottom, click the pointer next to Save > click Save As > navigate to a folder of your choice > click the chosen folder > click Save
    The iso will start downloading to your chosen folder.
    When it is done, go to that folder > open the folder > right click at the iso file > click Mount > click Setup.exe
    Installation will begin.
    It will allow you to keep you files, settings and apps.
    No product key is required.
    Activation will be automatic.
