Windows 10: Failed installation.

  1.    31 Jan 2015 #1

    Failed installation.


    Hi Group, I'm trying to install W10 on a new Dell laptop with W 8.1. The download seems to go fine, the installation seems to go fine, but I end up with "some updates were not installed" "failed one update" with the red shield and the red vertical bar. Error code: 80070003. I've been through this about 5 times now. Can anyone help? I may choose to completely wipe this drive and install from the disk image. Thank for any help.

    You`re trying to do it through windows update ?

    Tell us exactly how you are trying to install.

    My advice, do not upgrade your 8.1 to a preview, wait til windows 10 comes out or......

    Get another drive to install 10 on

    My update from 8.1 to 10 started yesterday. So far it's tried about 5 times - each takes a few hours and all ended in 80070003 - installation failed. The silly thing is, my computer is a fairly new Microsoft Surface Pro 3. If anything supports Windows 10, then this should!
