    Just tried this and got the same error code again. Booted straight back into 8.1
    Have you tried to upgrade using the Media creation tool from Microsoft? Or using an .ISO file?

    In some ways the Media Creation Tool is the same when upgrading. If you select Upgrade now, it downloads all files so it's a good guess that any that it has to download W10 files they'll be the same.
