    Thanks PRMan, I'll give that a try next time I am using the PC. I noticed Avast throwing up a lot of errors during my latest failed installation attempt, and the only thing I could do was press enter to acknowledge them.

    No, these drives are inside the computer and I don't really want to mess around unplugging them for the sake of an upgrade. Also, I should mention my PC is custom built. I'll list the specs if you like.

    Also, I appreciate the fast replies a lot. On some forums I've had to wait nearly an hour for just one response. :P
    There is no need for your spec's now if you are unwilling to go inside of the 'puter.

    If Avast is giving you problems, you can disable it, and see if it will stop warning's.

    Are you willing to do the upgrade again to correct the problem's ?

    I'll be uninstalling avast and running the upgrade again. I doubt it will work as the downstairs PC also had avast and Windows 10 installed fine.

    I'm still a little ticked off I might need to format my OS drive, reinstall windows 7 and upgrade to Windows 10. Surely there must be another option?

    Try Clean Booting Windows 7 then try the upgrade again.

    Tried that, and it didn't work.

    This morning I'm running it again, and I disconnected my other two sata drives, unplugged my usb hub and CH products controllers as well, leaving me with drive C, my DVD drive (using the DVD made from the tool) and my BR DVD burner (should have removed that too but ...)

    Will update ...

    Ran through "Preparing 87%" then restarts that preparing cycle, let it go and on third time removed $windowsBT and will retry.

    This is so frustrating that one system, my main one is having this while others are up and done, plus it changes, nothing is consistent throughout.

    the very first time I actually got the reboot and the upgrading windows, finished copying files and it as on the drivers area that it reverted ....

    Update 10:24: Same thing, ok, so now I'm thinning bad DL or burn, went to tool and upgrade from there, got past preparing and grabbed updates, on the making sure you are ready to install, about to pull the click to install, will let you all know ...

    Well, I've just uninstalled Avast, and ran the installation off my USB, and it got to around 88% when it said it was restarting. Following this, I got the same error message as before. How annoying!

    Edit: The error code I got when installing via the registry edit was 8007001F, which has something to do with hardware I believe.

    Well ...

    Blue install screen completed, system rebooted.

    Upgrading windows screen ... Copied all files and rebooted, I held my breath.

    Came back up and continued, I was elated but realized the original error was on FIRST_BOOT, so ...

    It got through features and drivers, and partway through that my screen went out, and all three came back, took the driver! It finished that section and then configuring settings.

    After that it gave a windows symbol and a short "updating system" then I was at the welcome back screen!

    No mouse though. I had expected this, as I? typically have issues with logitech dinovo and the wifi/BT usb device. So I plugged in a dell kb/mse and got through that. and to my new desktop in 10!

    Immediately checked activation, and I'm activated on Pro.

    The broadcom 3.0 couldn't start for BT, uninstalled and rebooted, device install screen finished and I have my Bt devices back, all appears well.

    Now I have to shutdown, plug in my other two sata drives, and my CH peripherals (which I suspect won't be an issue as dev manager still lists them, etc., we'll see).

    I'd say it had to be the multiple drives! You guys are great!

    Thank you.
    Congrat's, great job on listening our advice and getting it done.

    It was much easier to reach in, unplug the drive's and complete the installation.
    As opposed to fight a losing battle.

    Thanks for posting back your progress, this will help some else in the future.
