    Migrated Win7 to SSD will not upgrade to Win10

    Using an Asus CM8730 desktop with Win7. Purchased a Samsung Evo 850 SSD and used Samsung Migration software to move Win7 to the SSD from the HD that came from the computer. All went well, the computer boots very fast from the SSD. After about a month of use I decided to upgrade to Win10 but each time I've tried I got the same message: "Windows 10 couldn't be installed. We couldn't update the system reserved partition." I am not a computer expert so I am asking for a simple solution to my problem, if there is such a thing. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    The error

    "Windows 10 couldn't be installed. We couldn't update the system reserved partition."

    has been dealt with in these topics:
    win10 upgrade error - Windows 10 Forums
    on Win10 upgrade. : Windows10

    In the reddit post, people solved this issue by taking ownership of the partition. I myself have not tried, if that works and it requires typing some commands on the command line.
