    That's good, at least you know there is no hardware basis for the problem, has to be remnants of the currently installed OS that is causing the problem. Hopefully when 10 is released this problem will be fixed as this will be the way most people will be getting 10.
    I have a feeling that I am going to have to perform an inplace upgrade repair of 7

    I have Win7 Pro SP1 on my Ontario computer and Win 8.1 on my Florida one. I installed Win10 Build 9926 on a new 256 GB SSD and brought the SSD when I came back from FL and plugged it in to my computer here and have been doing upgrades up until 10122 so far. Unplugged the Win7 drive so as to not have any funny business. I don't intend to give up my license for Win7 so won't be upgrading it. I have another SSD somewhere and if I can find it, I will install Win7 SP1 and try to upgrade it to Win10. You're got me curious now.

    24GB ram may be the problem. Try removing all but 4GB (or 8GB is has to be paired) and see what happens. You can put all the ram back after the install if it works.

    It was not a problem when I upgrade to build 10049 so why would it be now or ever??

    Maybe need an existing TP version installed??


    This is a grasping at straws type of idea, as the TP's move closer to the RTM could an upgrade through windows update be dependent upon a previous installation of the earlier TP? I've only used WU to install new versions with little problems noted other than how long it takes.

    It takes a long time, I have an 18M connection and between that and the install it's probably 4 hours or more. After the first time taking that long I now wait until the new TP is being installed and usually go to bed. I use WMware player freeware ver. 7.1.0 build-2496824 on a Win7 Home Premium SP1 host.

    Maybe try installing an earlier version and then trying the upgrade. I've reviewed the thread and don't think I've seen whether you've tried it that way. What a PIA you've been through so far, jeez WU is how this OS is supposed to be installed so they really need to get that part working.
