    My notebook: Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro, i7-4510U, Intel 4400 iGPU, 8 GB RAM, Samsung 256GB SSD, 3200x1800 LED, OEM Windows 8.1 Home
    One other thing: I have a system here that I can not get the GWX to come through on, and I noticed that there were 3 optional windows updates waiting. When I clicked on "more information" I found that one of them is specifically to facilitate upgrades to current windows OS.

    "This update helps Microsoft make improvements to the current operating system in order to ease the upgrade experience to the latest version of Windows."

    I realise you are on W8, but there could be a similar optional update for your system as well.

    No problem at all. So you have (x64 I assume) Intel® Iris™, Iris™ Pro and HD Graphics Driver for Windows* 7/8/8.1 64-bit version 15.36.23.64.4251 (10.18.14.4251) released 7-27-2015. And no bangs in Device Manager at all? even with showing hidden devices? Because someone said that they called MS support with upgrade failures and was told that failure in the early percentage is due to drivers. There's also a BIOS update from this past May.
    Hi

    Just to check, did you try setting the Selective StartUp and only 'Load system services' selected?

    Type Run in search
    Type msconfig
    Select General tab
    Select Selective Startup
    Only check Load system services

    Sorry if this is something you did try in our previous posts.

    Well, I surrendered and went the "nuclear" route: I clean installed from a Win8.1 Home disk, upgraded that to Win10 and activated, then reformatted and installed a clean version of Win10. Still some hiccups along that path, but I'll spare you all the details.

    Case closed.

    Glad you finally got this sorted. Please mark the thread as "solved" in the top left-hand area. Thanks!
