    Upgrade Win 7 Home Premium to Win 10 fails.


    It is Windows Home Premium 32 bit.
    The HDD has 285 GB free.
    I'm trying to upgrade online with the Media Creator.
    It gets all the way through and installs Win 10, then reboots and starts "Working on Updates"
    At 7% it reboots and goes back to Win 7.
    0x8007001F-0x20006
    The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during REPLICATE_OC operation.

    There is a single partition occupying the whole of the disk. There's no room for Setup to create any other partitions such as the recovery partition. That may be your problem...

    The Windows upgrade process flowchart ... shows the extended error 0X20006 as a failure to Move/Copy the source WIM to the recovery location. Best I can determine is that a image file isn't being moved or copied to the recovery partition during the Safe-OS phase.

    Try shrinking the C: partition to leave at least 500MB unallocated space.

    I shrunk the C: and left a unallocated partition of 1.47GB.
    I ran the update and it rebooted, recovered to Win 7 at the same spot , "Working on Updates" after install, with the same error: 0x8007001F-0x20006.

    After it booted into Win 7, I got a popup about parental controls saying one or more admin accounts do not have a password so I looked in Users and there is a ASP.NET Machine Account in Users that had a password.
    I removed the password.
    Could this have anything to do with the upgrade failing?

    If you haven't already, download the MCT and run it locally. If you've already done that and it fails. Download the full ISO, was about to say mount it, but I guess you'll need to extract it. Then run setup.exe.

    For a Windows 7 machine that cannot natively mount an ISO, the simplest solution is to use the MCT to make a USB instead of an ISO. Just remember to remove the USB when the upgrade gets to the first reboot stage, you want to boot from the HDD to continue the install, not from the USB.

    Hi,
    I'd say restore a system image before the first attempt to inplace upgrade if you bother to make one that is :)
    Just clean install 10 if you want it so bad
    Everyone eventually clean installs 10 just say you don't have a activation key during the install
    Enter it later if asked
    Make sure to yes this time make a system image before clean installing 10

    That will work and may be easier.
