Windows 10: Install Build 10041 ISO Failed

    Install Build 10041 ISO Failed

    I just downloaded the iso for build 10014, created an USB for it and then ran it to go from 9926 to 10014. I ran until nearly the end and then produced the screen below.

    Has anyone seen this sort of thing and what to I need to do to correct it?

    Thank you very much.

    Whoops! I messed up big time.

    Seems like I am also having other troubles to with posting the picture.
    Anyway here is what the screen said.

    "We couldn't install Windows 10 Technical Preview
    We've set your PC back to the way is was right before you started installing Windows 10 Technical Preview

    This is the first time I've had installing a new build via the ISO route.

    Yes, a clean install worked as promised but I was trying to upgrade from Windows 7.

    I did when I did the clean install but my intent was to upgrade from 9926 from Windows 7. That worked fine when I went from 9whatever to 9926 and other earlier builds. Go figure!

    You might need a BIOS update.

    Please follow this tutorial to provide the current operating environment of the machine you're trying to update.

Hi there To FORCE a clean install if you are using the ISO (or USB created from the ISO). 1) download something like GPARTED. 2) delete existing C partition 3) now boot the ISO / USB stick.
