    I'm guessing, considering the 25% - 30% mark is the point where drivers are installed, some of the new drivers are not compatible with your system.
    Did you do a proper compatibility check before going for the upgrade? Or did you just directly go for the download?

    All adds up to me as they all reboot at the 30% mark and it seems as if the reboot is checking for temp and decides to not boot.

    Sounds feasible, anyway!!

    Laptop Shuts Straight Off During Windows 10 Upgrade


    Josiah said: View Post
    hi guys Josiah here, i finally got windows 10 to install properly, i think it was mostly the heat....but lemme tell you how i did it..

    Firstly, go to the battery icon in your taskbar, and press more power options..then go to your current battery profile (mines was balanced) and press change plan settings, then go to change advanced settings...now find processor power management..under that go to system cooling policy and change both of them to passive hit apply and ok and close those off.

    Secondly, run the windows 10 setup, but just before u do that, remove your battery and i placed two books under my laptop for leverage....and for extra cooling i put two fans on high speed directly at the vents and made sure that the laptop was cool at all times......then i ran the windows 10 setup...

    Thirdly, i let it run by itself and didnt interfere with it until prompted to press accept or whatever the case may be...
    then it installed by itself, i currently have windows 10 pro and it works great....

    Hope it works for you guys,
    Cheers Mates..

    I had exactly the same problem and I didn't think this would work, but it did. Thanks, Josiah.

    The problem lies that the system becomes overheated due to the long process of the installation of windows 10. I tried this upgrade twice and the system shuts down on copying files stage. However, with your process of troubleshooting, i was able to upgrade my system to Windows 10. Appreciate that you have posted the comment, otherwise, i was frustrated in upgrading.

    Again.....you're very welcome mate....yeah it is a bit unbelievable but this works and im happy to say that i havent had any problems with my windows 10 since and this seems to be a pretty rare problem because ive had a couple of friends say that it worked fine for them so im glad it worked for you....Cheers...

    Also on a side note....this does no harm to your pc...this is just a method of cooling it down for the install to be complete....

    Cheers Guys,
    Josiah
