    • Your adapter was connected during an upgrade from Windows 7 or Windows 8 to Windows 10.
    • The updated adapter driver was not properly installed (The Windows 7 driver is not supported in Windows 10. A new driver needs to be installed)



    Of course, I don't know what his model is....

    Since he's failing early in the upgrade process, that is an indication of driver issues. I wonder if this is it?
    I'm thinking you found it and that's it. It makes perfect sense. Nice find

    Axington, do you have an Ethernet cable that you can use and be able to plug in so far as distance from your router or another WiFi card?

    This is what a friend of mine is reporting with his laptop > Sit-n-spin. Probably no driver for his onboard card.

    Edit: I guess we'll have to wait for his card model first.

    It's the WG111V3. I just set it up and everything with a new copy of windows 7 on this thing. Though, the installation was really clunky and stuff and because I had to try at installing it multiple times, the name of the device on device manager ends with #2, though no other copy of the drivers is installed.
    As for me using alternatives, that's just not an option right now. my room isn't the one our router is in, and I don't own an ethernet cable, let alone one that long.
    Should I get my AMD drivers again? Then re-remove the catalyst tools as well? Right now, its just using those default drivers that make the screen super low res even on an HD monitor like I have, which is fine for a temporary time until I have 10 installed, so ease of use isn't an issue, its just if those drivers are necessary for this to be done or not.

    Edit: I'll be able to go into town tomorrow to see about getting either a different wireless adapter or an ethernet cable. If you guys know of a model that may actually work with windows 10, I'd rather use wireless, because it's just really inconveniently far to put a cord.

    there is no driver for 10. Up to W7 only, so it's outdated.

    Look online for a new adapter or a local store. I'd research online, get some model numbers, then go to a store.

    I'm going to try best buy. Probably a good store to try for this kind of stuff, right?

    I would upgrade via ethernet as well if possible , much less of a chance of screwing up.

    It's a good a place as any I guess. How long a cable would you need to go Ethernet? Perhaps just temporary? Depending on $ of course. It'd be nice to go that route permanently if at all possible. I just did. So much quicker.

    I disabled "fastboot" and all seems to be well now , thanks everybody . I see very little difference in boot speed between enabled and disabled so i will keep it disabled. That constant freezing was a big pita.

    Well, I'm still going to wait until I've fully installed 10 before I mark this as solved just to be safe. But, we are pretty sure this is solved, so, huge thanks to everyone who has been so patiently helping me, especially simrick. I look forward to using an OS that isn't outdated. Thanks so much, everyone.
