    Derr Win10

    Win10 will not Install due to Guest Account

    Personally I HATE Win10 because at best it is just an advertising platform and at worst it is Spyware.

    I ended up creating a dual boot system with Win7 and Win10, but I hardly ever use Win10.

    So, a friend asked me to upgrade their Laptop, at first I was amazed I mean most people complain because of the GFX nagware automatically installing it, so I took a look.

    I clicked on the upgrade this PC nagware app and it said the Laptop could not be upgraded, it had a Report so I clicked it, everything was OK, memory, CPU, Hard Disk, all of it fine. The only thing there was a problem with was that there had been a Guest Account (I disabled it and deleted profile as part of a clean up before upgrading)

    This is the error

    I created a a Win10 ISO thinking I could do it offline but it would not fit on a DVD and I have no USB keys.

    Any ideas on how to make the thing upgrade?

    Download the ISO file onto the computer to be upgraded. Mount it, run setup.exe from inside the mounted ISO file.
