    Can't update to Windows 10 TP from 8.1


    Hi

    It seemingly installs fine, no errors shown, it checks my PC fine, accept the license then reboots. Windows 8.1 starts up as usual and nothing more happens. I check Windows update and each time I see it twice each time, successful and a failed with code 80070002 I tried all troubleshooting guides (deleting cache, temp files, and always end up with that error code, does anyone have some clue on this?

    Thank you

    I would create a new partition and install from a flash drive or DVD

    Thank you, do you mean a partition on the hard drive? I cannot create more as I could break things here.

    I would like to upgrade it (NOT clean install) is there a way? I've searched and seems I'm the only one with this exact issue *facepalm*

    ISO doesn't work either, (it goes up to 36% then a message saying Installation has failed pops up) so I will wait until the final version. Goodbye for now.
