    Did you see it report any errors at all?? Next option left would most likey be a clean install using the ISO From a USB stick which you would have to boot to and run off the USB drive, to clean install windows 1511

    In other words you would make the USB memory stick bootable with your Windows 1511 on the USB. Then run Setup.

    I was afraid of that. I do have a bootable USB ready to go. I still may just live with it though. Not sure yet.

    It is still checking for updates.

    Thank you for your time on this

    Hope it works for you, I would not want to lose all my app and personal files either. If you do go that way, backup your personal files on another drive.

    Also IF you have to clean install make a backup of all your device drivers. Run this command from command prompt change the drive letter to where you want to store the drivers.
    md c:\Drivers
    Dism /Online /Export-Driver /Destination:C:\Drivers

    Do you happen to have Zone Alarm installed ?
    If yes, uninstall it and try upgrade install again.

    Hi there

    maybe I've missed something here - but why not simply use the Media creation tool from Ms - then create (Menu pops up) ISO or USB. I created an ISO (since I want to run some VM's as well and booting a VM from a USB doesn't work yet - from an ISO image it does). Then if you want a bootable USB simply run RUFUS against the .iso

    Now also if you have an SD card in the system this can cause funny problems at W10 install (although card is fine afterwards) such as "Cannot install windows to this partition / disk etc.

    Remove any other spurious hardware (external USB devices etc) and simply boot the USB.

    Windows should work fine -- switch OFF Protected boot if it's on in the BIOS though - and enable legacy boot if you want to boot OS'es without UEFI. You can still boot a UEFI OS of course -- just ensure that the boot device is GPT formatted.

    To do that :

    Boot up install disk and choose REPAIR system - this is just to get into a Command mode prompt.

    Then DISKPART
    LIST DISK
    SELECT DISK nn where nn is the HDD / SSD where you want windows to be installed on
    CLEAN
    Create partition primary
    exit


    Now run Diskpart again and select the disk you just used
    convert gpt

    Now re-boot and see if Windows now installs.

    Cheers
    jimbo
