    Simrick and everyone else,

    After considerable time spent going down several rabbit holes (and a lot of travel for my job), I got serious again about doing this Win 10 upgrade. First time, same flameout at 22%, but with a different error message this time. 0x800703f1-0x2000a. Doing some searching, I kept on getting links for registry corruption.

    So I spent time trying out different registry cleaners. Then I installed the free version of CCleaner. Wowzers. Almost 1400 issues, way more than any of those not-free registry cleaners. In a way not surprising, since this Windows 7 image has been in service since early 2012 and I've gone through many software installs, uninstalls, upgrades, trials, you-name-it.

    After running CCleaner, I was successful with the Win 10 upgrade. Woohoo! I'm happy. The sun is shining again. Time to change my sig.

    Are there any tools that help pinpoint the real errors as opposed to all the "noise".

    My setuperr file is "only" 65KB but the setupact file is, and I'm not making this up, 32,866 KB. Is a setupact file that big a "good thing" or a "really, really bad thing?"



    I'm asking becuase the error messages from Windows are useful to identify the issues.

    Following a suggestion from an earlier reply in one of my threads, I ran sfc /scannow, and the result was no issues.

    Thanks,

    I had a similar problem and just searched for the errors at the end of the file which caused the installation to fail. I discovered my problem was due to a corrupted EFI system partition. The PC would boot fine in Windows 8.1 but the corruption caused the Windows 10 installation to fail.

    Great news! Yeah, Ccleaner is the best. So glad you got it upgraded. Cheers and thanks for posting back with your solution.

    EDIT: Please go ahead and mark the thread as solved.
