    You have been very helpful, it's not you at all . I get extremely frustrated with myself for not understanding this stuff, i got so disgusted i decided to start over and refresh Win 10 again before i saw your latest post.

    Well , what a nightmare that was , when i have done it in the past no problems but not this time . After nearly an hour Microsoft informed me i had an error and just kept shutting down and restarting in a never ending loop , the error message was "no bootable device" found .

    Big trouble , only thing that saved me was a Win 7 repair disk and a Win 7 image i burned before attempting Win 10. I had Win 7 back in no time , i am in the process of downloading Win 10 again using the "media creation tool" and i am hoping this time for a trouble free , corruption free version.

    Will keep you all informed , if this new one starts to give me crap i'm heaving my whole system out the window and am going to take up bowling instead.

    Too much aggravation lol.

    Win 10 downloaded OK and said verified and was about to install and then all of a sudden a popup shows and says (something went wrong) thats all it said .

    No sweat fred, even techies get frustrated by technology

    The trick is to always remember that we cannot let the machines win!

    I'm glad you didn't say take up golf - I understand that can be a very frustrating game.

    Ok, you have a fresh download and you put it on a DVD?
    You were booted to Windows 7 and you ran setup on the Win10 DVD?

    I'd like to see your Disk Management again.
    Download this zip file (contains dmDskmgr-vd.mmc)


    Strike: you can launch the MMC from inside the compressed folder, you don't need to extract it first
    Extract the mmc file (dbl click the zip to open, then extract all)
    then dbl click the decompressed mmc file to run it

    Double click the compressed folder, dmDskmgr-vd.zip, to open it
    Double click dmDskmgr-vd.mmc, to launch the custom Disk Management console
    You'll get an output similar to this:

    Press Alt+PrtScn to grab a snapshot of just that window
    Open Paint and Ctrl+V to paste it, then save the image
    Attach the image to a new post.

    Thanks,

    Bill

    I already challenged my machine to an all out brawl to the death using prehistoric weaponry , it hasn't responded yet but one of us must die . Will update everyone unless machine wins of course.


    Ok, you have a fresh download and you put it on a DVD?
    You were booted to Windows 7 and you ran setup on the Win10 DVD?
    When i refreshed Windows 10 it got to 99% refreshed but stopped at 99% and then developed into a nonstop loop that said no boot device detected. All signs of Win 10 were gone .

    I had to use a Win 7 repair disk to boot and used a Win 7 image to get Win 7 back up and running . I then attempted to download Win 10 using the "media creation tool" .





    I got a message saying (something went wrong) just as my Win 10 download was about to install (no joke) , that is all it said . It was a brand new download using the media creation tool , after i got that unhelpful message i didn't know what to do .

    I saw that Windows update was again prompting me to install Win 10 again so thats what i am currently waiting on to finish , i will let you know how that goes , it's on 50%.

    I already updated to Win 10 this way the first time but when i got back to Win 7 it's letting me do it again.

    Good luck in battle ... machines are not very smart, I'm certain you will be victorious.

    I hate that message! No kidding something went wrong - thanks Windows 10 for the detailed information

    I'll say this for you, you are a champion!
    Just so I'm sure what path you're currently taking, you are doing the upgrade from the prompt - is that correct?

    I'd still like to see the disk management screen I asked about in post # 43.

    In addition, between frames (bowling reference) could you also post a screen shot of your C: drive?
    Before grabbing the screen,
    Navigate to C:
    press the blue FILE menu on File Explorer
    select Change folder and search options

    Then grab the screen shot - I'm looking for any hidden folders that begin with $ or ~$

    Thanks

    I was critically injured in battle , machine won but decided to spare my life , how thoughtful , was in the hospital in a full body cast so sorry for the late response , here's a pic .





    I hate that message! No kidding something went wrong - thanks Windows 10 for the detailed information
    Tell me about it, that has got to be the most useless message ever , very reassuring , what a joke.

    Ya see, I try to make it easy by creating a custom MMC so that the pertinent information gets conveyed the first time ... does anyone listen ? Nope ... it's not just you fred, no one has used the MMC I offered

    Anyway .. the information is in the Status column - close the 'wings' on Disk Management and drag the Status column wider to show the flags. Also make sure that the disk space and free space show. Use my Disk Management picture as an example (of course, you could always use the custom Disk Management console - it's was created with Windows MMC)

    Did I ask you for a Specy report - did you post a link to the PUBLISHED snapshot?
    IF you posted a link, let me know, I'll look for it

    other wise ...
    Please follow this tutorial to provide the current operating environment of your machine.

    The machines are probably cutting the lines of communication. We have to keep the supply lines open or the battle is lost.

    I'll look at the new data I requested in post 48 when you post it.
