- so I suggest you look carefully at your installed programs and see if you see anything that might hook onto the Windows UI or modify it in any way, and uninstall that and your AV/firewall and try again.
Have you tried running a compatibility check?
Will your PC run Windows 10? Use the official compatibility checker to find out | ZDNet
OK, then uninstall or completely disable your antivirus, firewall, antispyware, any disk utility (Macrium, Acronis etc). Then go at Device Manager and disable any non-important device (audio, SATA/SCSI controller without devices attached, TV tuner etc). This will prevent any hardware incompatibilities (if Windows Update cannot find drivers for a device, installation stucks at some point). Also press Win+R to open a Run dialog and execute msconfig. Go to Services tab, check the box to hide all Microsoft services and then disable most non-important services (updaters etc). Then click on Startup tab and click to open Task Manager. Again disable any non-important application (QTtask, Skype, Java etc). This will prevent any software incompatibilities. Open the Windows 10 ISO or DVD, right-click on Setup and Run as Administrator (just in case). Now you should succeed.
PS: It is a good idea to execute a check disk to eliminate any disk errors before starting:

I installed w10 using the downloader a few days ago.
It it worked fine, then on the desktop it froze.
now I cannot boot up. It just stays on the first screen. This is really annoying, how can I fix this ?
I know windows 10 has hardware based tokens, but I would like to copy this token and keep it sumwhere safe so tht in future if it cannot activate due to any reason, I can manually install the token and validate my copy of windows.
Microsoft said a clean install of Windows 10 can happen. How do you find the key? Do you have to use a key finder after the upgrade or will Microsoft make it easily available?
