    Windows is activated it's the third thing I did. After install LAN driver and install Anti Virus.
    will download other updates now and see how it goes.
    Hope everything will go well. Good luck.

    Might want to disable the AV for now until the updates go well.

    I thought a user could install Windows 7, activate it and then jump into upgrading to Windows 10. Maybe I'm wrong, but I know my brother's system wasn't up to date on his Win7 machine and was able to upgrade to Win10. The only issue I had was he didn't have enough space on his drive.
    It was just a suggestion seeming the problems the OP is having.

    Got 70 GB free on my OS HDD so space should not be an issue?

    should I have reconnected my other HDDs yet?

    You can leave them offline for now until we can resolve this oddball issue. Space is definitely not an issue with you. 70GB free space is more than adequate. My brother's was less than 1GB free space...

    Suddenly thought. When I did the clean 10 install I don't know if I had the LAN driver on before or after I checked if it was activated!!

    A clean install works fine, but issues upgrading... did you try running the setup.exe with AV and/or other security software disabled?

    I had AV enabled. Force of habit having AV active straight away.
