    Thanks, I will follow the procedures, short of opening up my case and pulling my SATA drives; don't want to mess around inside again unless I have to.

    This is a routine checklist when upgrading:

    This is an upgrade checklist:  (modified for upgrading 7 to 10)
    Run through this check list before the next upgrade attempt:
    1) remove nonessential hardware
    USB devices
    portable optical drives (CD, DVD)
    bluetooth devices
    USB drives (other than a windows 10 iso if used for the upgrade)
    USB Wireless Mouse or Keyboard Receiver, USB Wireless Network Card
    secondary monitors
    2) These should be the only attached devices:
    wired mouse
    wired keyboard
    Any of these that have been done in the past week are not necessary to repeat:
    3) open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste: (repair file system)
    chkdsk /r /v C:
    This may take many hours so plan to run overnight
    Find the chkdsk report in the event viewer using the information in this link and post into the thread:
    4) open administrative command prompt and copy and paste: (repair operating system)
    sfc /scannow 
    When this has completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread
    5) update windows (have all recommended updates installed) and reboot after updates
    6) List and uninstall all non-Microsoft antivirus software
    (This includes always on and manual software.)
    (This includes running the applicable antivirus uninstall tools for any AV that could have been incompletely uninstalled)
    (And this includes uninstalling Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) immediately before the upgrade attempt)
    7) List and uninstall all non-Microsoft firewall software
    8) List all Microsoft and non-Microsoft drive encryption software. 
    Uninstall all non-Microsoft disk encryption software
    9) Run disk cleanup to clean temporary and system files
    10) Create and verify that the drive has > 30 GB free space (At least 25 GB is needed for maintaining certain dump files)
    11) Consider placing the computer in clean startup:
    12) Detach all SATA devices other than the disk drive that has the Windows operating system
    (Make sure that the only disk drive that is attached to the computer at the time of the upgrade attempt is the disk drive containing Windows)
    (Other disk drives may be able to be detached by disconnecting cables or if necessary to remove the drive from the computer)
    13) Make sure that there is no metered connection:
    14) Consider making a free backup image:
    15) Test the drive:
    Crystal Disk standard edition:
    Very interesting @zbook!

    Re-imaged, ran Scandisk as directed, and pulled all peripherals of the machine. Ran the upgrade, it rebooted and brough up a Loading Files prompt with a progress bar beneath that ran to completion, and it rebooted. Upon reboot, it had a brief cursor, and again rebooted; this reboot on start behaviour kept going.

    The setup log was bit more descriptive this time; it is below:

    <SetupDiag xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:xsi="" xmlns="">
    <LogErrorLine>2020-06-18 08:06:11, Error MOUPG CSystemHelper::CheckConnectedStandby(642): Result = 0x80070057</LogErrorLine>
    <FailureData>Error: SetupDiag reports abrupt down-level failure.Last Operation: FinalizeError: 0x80070057 - 0x40005</FailureData>
    <FailureData>LogEntry: 2020-06-18 08:06:11, Error MOUPG CSystemHelper::CheckConnectedStandby(642): Result = 0x80070057</FailureData>
    <FailureData>Refer to "" for error information.</FailureData>
    <FailureDetails>ErrorCode = 0x80070057, ExCode = 0x40005, Oper = Finalize</FailureDetails>

    My miss is satisfied with the way I was able to restore her Firefox profile from Windows 7 to Windows 10 LTSB, so I will likely just restore the Windows 7 drive to its prior, usable, state, and run the LTSB installation as my regular OS, and keep the Windows 7 HDD as a place to restore a Macrium backup of the SSD should it fail. Thanks for the help!
