    How do I resume install of Win10 after power outage and July 29


    Hello TenForums,

    During the install of Win10 on July 29 there was a power outage. The first retry was successful using the Media Creation Tool on the 30th then another outage that interrupted the download the same evening. I tried to resume using the Media Creation Tool on the 31st...its not working. The msg regarding the MCT is "there was a problem starting Setup..."

    Please provide me with assistance to finish this process. The time period gap in attempting to resume is because I am updating my small office computer that is away from my home.

    Sorry There is no way to upgrade after the free upgrade offer finished except by purchasing a copy of windows 10 - the offer has been active for a year so Microsoft is not moving on this at all and there are no plans for further similar offers at present

    Luckily, Microsoft has extended free activations for 2 more weeks.

    That's new information. Could you provide a link to an official MS article / blog post confirming this?

    This is the source:

    And since there is the official Microsoft policy of the free upgrade for assistive technology users it also makes sense that the activation servers are not rejecting new upgrade activations because to the best of my knowledge there is no special activation process set aside for that.

    Just trying it now with an activated 8.1 home version I had in a vm.

    I tried the assistative website (I am a deaf hearing aid user so I legimately count), but it crapped out at last minute and rolled back.

    As I suspected, it's just a completely untrue rumour, that's all, not valid information which comes pretty clear already reading that thread and especially when checking the links provided.

    Valid information available here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...10-upgrade-faq

    Using the assistive technology offer without qualifying is against the spirit of the offer and thus piracy - This forum does not condone piracy in any form and members have already been banned for suggesting this option
