    10240 won't install

    I have a previous thread with the 10166 build
    HTML Code:
    Now as the 10240 build has been released I'm getting the same error as before.
    I've also tried deleting all drivers, but I still cannot upgrade.

    Sometimes, you just have to nuke the whole thing. It's the only way to be sure.

    I always prefer clean installs myself. I upgraded someone else's PC the other day (from 8.1 to 10) and it was slow and buggy. I backed up all his stuff and then formatted his drive and did a clean install. It now runs fast and smooth. You should do the same. People find it daunting, but honestly, it doesn't take long to reinstall a few programs.
