Windows 10: Laptop shuts down during Windows 10 installation

    Laptop shuts down during Windows 10 installation


    Okay so I'm trying to upgrade the Windows 7 on my laptop to Windows 10 and it keeps shutting down every time AFTER the download is complete. It shuts down on its own and when I start it again, I have to re-download the entire thing and it shuts down at the exact same point during the installation.
    My laptop's pretty old and heats up easily, so I'm aware that that could be the cause, but I don't get why it shuts down at the same point every time. Is there any way to fix this or should I just give up?
    Also, is there any way to not have to re-download the whole thing every time?

    Use the tutorial here in the tutorial section to download the .ISO and manually install it as an upgrade from inside Windows.

    Hi Saiyara and welcome to Tenforums.

    You can download the ISO from MSTechBench once. Then run the installation that way. Please see the tutorial and video here (see step #7):
