    Mine said that Windows 10 failed to upload...oh well. lol

    Is there a way to try again?
    Yes, follow the instructions on the reddit.com article: Fix for the 80240020 error when trying to install Windows 10 : windows
    You might get another Error after trying to upload, but just repeat the process again as described in Article, took me a couple of times before it finally worked, so don't give up

    I appreciate all the tips, but If I start deleting files that's when things go wrong. I knew this wasn't going to be as simple as was claimed. I am sticking with 7.....nice try Microsoft, I'm out! ...thanks everyone!!!

    My upgrade from Windows 7 to 10 went far better than I expected, all my applications from 7 were left working apart from one and even desktop icons were in the same position they were before the upgrade.
    The only app I'm having problems with is Microsoft Money which refuses to open as it keeps looking for an Internet Explorer 6 entry in the registry. This app worked fine with Win 10 until build 10240. There is a registry hack posted on the MS Money forum which works, I'll just have to see if it has affected anything else.

    Upgraded from 8.1 Home to 10 Home went without a hitch. . .. One of the nice things is 8.1 would not see my ATI card 10 picked it up, hence, I now have all three monitors up and running, now just have to fine that old copy of Display Fusion. . .. . .Good-bye to the Insider Program. Decided there is no reason to stay within the program any more, albeit will continue to monitor the Ten Forums for what is new and wonderful in the World of Windows 10. . .

    Well I had to download the Iso because it simply refused to download the update to W10. I can advise everyone who has got issues with the update to get the Iso and install it from a DVD/ USB stick.
