    Windows 7 fails to update to Windows 10


    I reserved my copy of windows 10. I have tried to update it plenty of time but every time i do it fails during the second boot, it stops at 93% and goes to a black screen for a while, than it says "restoring back to your previous version of windows" I dont know what to do. I tried mostly everything. I deleted all the files in the software distribution and went into command prompt and put in wuauclt.exe /updatenow that didnt work. I downloaded the windows tool directly from windows that didnt work. Can someone help me? Should I call Microsoft. Is anyone else having this problem?

    Did you remember to shutoff and remove security and toolbars and run cleanup disk prior to upgrading ?

    What I was trying to say is if there are any running programs in the background they may be causing the issue your having. I hope this helps you http://goodereader.com/blog/tablet-s...-pc-and-tablet
