    RWOne,

    Thank you.
    Congrat's, great job on listening our advice and getting it done.

    It was much easier to reach in, unplug the drive's and complete the installation.
    As opposed to fight a losing battle.

    Thanks for posting back your progress, this will help some else in the future.
    You're certainly welcome ... though I'm not the one who was opposed to pulling off drives earlier ...

    As a sysadmin, I'm up to try anything, considering I ran out of my own ideas, and searched online for anything to deal with it, and my motto is someone else can always know something more than I do, you have to take ego out of the equation, especially when we're dealing with MS and error screens such as "something happened" ...

    I know a lot, but learned long time ago that this is why we have communal BB's.

    Damn, now I have time to relax by the pool hehehe ....

    For the rest of you and the OP, I wish you well, will always be around to help if I can ....

    I agree, you did not disagree about the drive's.

    It was more of a point for others reading this thread, which is to listen to advice before you flat out refuse it.

    You're are right, everyone doe's not know everything about 'puter's, no matter how highly they regard themselves.

    Please feel free to add your knowledge to any post you want to.

    Enjoy your poolside time, don't forget the sunscreen !

    So it is the multiple drives causing the issue? Wow, I'm such a fool. I'll get to unplugging the sata cables and then try installing windows 10 again. Should I unplug my CD/DVD drive and front USB hub too?

    The DVD drive should not bother anything.

    Might be a good idea to unplug the USB hub also if you have any external drive's plugged into it.

    I had MSE installed and my upgrade went smoothly... I imagine it'd be any third-party A/V software.

    MSE is now called Windows Defender.

    It is part of the OS and can not be removed.

    Third party security, if you have it can be disabled.

    Yes, you are correct in saying this.

    Well, I unplugged the SATA cables from my other HDDs. One a related note, I had previously edited the registry when I built my PC to store all my documents on a seperate HDD, but I don't think that's much of an issue. Anyway, I started the installation for Windows 10 from my USB, it gets to around 25%, when I am greeted with the same stupid error message I always am. What the hell is going on?

    Although SATA's are hot drives, I would leave only your windows drive, remove any $windowsBT or WS folders, reboot and then perform the install from the tool, allowing it to re-download.

    I pulled everything but KB/MSE from mine.
