    Windows 10

    2 out of 3 successful


    First 2 installs went off without a hitch 3rd is proving to be a pain in the neck. I am up to 8 attempts after doing various things like using the tweaking.coms All-in-one repair tool, Anti-virus scans which did produce some malware. On the first 6 tries I would get to 32% of features and drivers before crashing and restoring old OS which is Windows 7. I got to 68% on the 7th try, same results. On the 8th try I made it all the way to configuration and crash. Because I experienced the same screen flash I determined it has to be the onboard Intel graphics drivers (Gateway All-in-one with touchscreen). No updates available so I guess I will have to wait. I have read everything I can, it seems drivers are at the root of many failures especially Asus , AMD based, Nvidia graphics, now add Intel graphics to the list.

    My advice, clean install Windows 7, then upgrade. Or do a factory reset, etc. It sucks but if its full of malware it can cause all kinds of issues on an upgrade. Or if it has corrupted system files as the result of removing malware. Backup what files you don't want to lose first.

    I agree with a clean install of Windows 7. I've done that on a couple of systems with success. Also, try to load only the most generic drivers. On one system I had an NVIDIA card, but I allowed Windows 7 to load a generic VGA driver and after the Windows 10 upgrade, then I loaded the NVIDIA drivers. Saved a lot of grief.

    I am upgrading, I will try a clean install of Windows 7 and try again, I backed up the system to discs before attempting the upgrade. I still think it is a graphics driver issue, I searched for drivers without success. TYVM
    My 1st two upgrades were on other computers in my home that were successful.

    For me, graphics drivers were upgraded/installed after logging in the first time. On my laptop, after I log in for the first time, my screen flashes, I here the beeps for new hardware detected, and the get a ccc requires your attention. On my desktop, when I log in, only the one monitor works at low resolution., then the NVidia drivers are updated and all three work.
