Windows 10: Win Fixit tool - error 0x80070075(2015-10-01-T-05_08_08P) Not fixed
Win Fixit tool - error 0x80070075(2015-10-01-T-05_08_08P) Not fixed
I have been trying update Win 7 Ultimate SP1 to Win 10 with the Media Creation Tool without success. I ran the update fixit tool and it was unable to fix the above error, I have attached a snip of the Fixit tool notice showing some issues were fixed.
I have attached the files produced by the Fixit tool
The regular Windows 7 update runs automatically for the Win7 updates without any problems.
How do I clear this error, and is the reason for Win 10 update failure?
Thanks in advance.

Stop using the update method. Use the Media Creation Tool's "upgrade this PC now" option instead.
See here: Windows 10 - Upgrade Installation
As I stated in my first line this what I am doing without success.
Sorry, read right over that.
Things to do before you upgrade to Windows 10
Before the next attempt, try doing the following (in no particular order after the backup is complete):
Create an image backup of your existing operating system to an external USB hard drive using a program like Macrium Reflect Free. If you don't have an external drive, get one as they are relatively cheap. A 1TB drive runs $50 to $60. Create the Rescue Disc that allows you to restore a backup is the computer will not boot normally, before you create the image backup so if anything goes wrong, you can recover in 20 to 30 minutes.
Check for Windows 10 or updated drivers for your hardware at the manufacturers web site.
Disconnect everything except mouse, keyboard and display, EVERYTHING!
Uninstall your anti-virus if it's other than the built-in Defender.
Uninstall your firewall if it's other than the built-in Firewall.
Uninstall any Start button programs like Classic Shell, Start8, also Window Blinds, etc.
Uninstall any theme modifications.
If you moved any of your user folders to another drive or partition, move them back.
See here: Successful upgrade to Windows 10 from 8.1 with 'Users' in other drive!
If you upgraded from Windows 8 or 8.1 and used EaseUS Partition Manager to change the partition structure, see EightForums for instructions on how to get your recovery partitions sorted, because the upgrade won't work otherwise.
Run chkdsk /r and let it start and complete on reboot.
Run sfc /scannow and see if it finds and repairs any system files.
Now try the upgrade to Windows 10.
Note: The above is a compilation of things people have done to get the Windows 10 upgrade to work for them. Seems like a lot of work but worth it if it allows you to do the upgrade.
Windows 10 update failures
Thank you Rich
Since my last post I decided to try another option which I had hoped would get me as close possible to a clean validated install.
Preparation sequence was:
Diskclean - SFC /scannow - Chkdsk /r - Checked Windows update history - Removed all USB hardware - Installed latest Catalyst drivers for my AMD system and graphics - Checked SSD firmware - Checked BIOS build - Created another disk image.
I then decided to give the Windows 10 installation a clear run by opting to allow it to delete everything on the Windows 7 SSD and let the installation do whatever was required without having regard to the Windows 7 content. The first try was with the Media Creation tool, result, SAFE_Boot OS failure etc. Retried from an installation USB, same result. I have attached the error logs, plus the current Diskpart information for the SSD and the single partition thereon.
If I am correct in my assumption the above exercise has eliminated the Windows 7 installation from the list of problems.
The next question I have, does the installation configure the SSD to suit the requirements of Windows 10 since it does not have to accommodate the previous OS other than for update failure?
Other possible problem areas are the BIOS, SSD or maybe the eight core AMD CPU is not yet fully supported.
As a matter of interest Windows 1024 runs perfectly in VirtualBox where the VM is located on an HDD and is allocated a single core within the VBox settings.
Windows 10 Update success
The root cause of my update problem was that Windows 10 update did not recognise the Windows 7 NTFS partition on my SSD. Each time I had run Chkdsk and SFC plus Disk Management both had reported that the partition was healthy, Windows 7 had been running on this partition without any hint of a problem. I only found the problem when I tried a clean install and got the error that the partition was not recognised as an NTFS partition.
Once I had used Diskpart to clean and reformat the Disk, I reinstalled Windows 7 to the validation stage and then started the Windows 10 update from a USB drive and all was OK. In my case I only lost my applications, my user data is on separate disks, but for anyone with a single disk with all the applications and user data together, this could have been a bit of a problem.
By starting Windows 10 update at the Windows 7 validation stage, and choosing the save nothing from the Windows 10 update options, have I got a nearly clean install?
To everyone doing a clean Windows 10 install and been getting an Error Code 0xC004C003 for several days with out activation.
I have tried several times to activate my Windows 10. I had several systems that I upgraded Windows via Windows update...

Hello fellow tenforums members,
about 10 days ago, I decided to upgrade my Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 via the Media Creation Tool.
After having installed the new OS, I was greeted with a watermark prompting me to activate Windows.
As stated in...
