    Hi Ron

    The free upgrade is officially over. I know it was extended, unofficially and they threatened to close it Dec 31, 2017. I did one late in January but they may have been serious and closed the door.

    That said, how did you create your USB media? Did you use the media creation tool?

    Did you shut off secure boot and fast boot in your BIOS?
