    Win Upgrade - "Something happened, Windows 10 installation has failed"

    Good morning,
    I have a Dell Inspiron 32 bit machine that I am trying to upgrade (one of about 10) from Windows 7 Enterprise 32 bit to Windows 10 Enterprise 32 bit. All of the Windows Updates have been installed and every time I try to upgrade to Windows 10 I get the "Something happened, Windows 10 installation has failed". My understanding is this computer is also an upgrade from Windows XP and not a fresh install of Windows 7.

    I have tried the steps outlined in here
    FIX: Something Happened - Windows 10 Installation Has Failed : Windows10

    I have also tried this through safe mode. It has not fixed the problem.

    I have been working through this as a possible solution

    However, when I go through the steps disk 0 (the only one in the system) does not have a FAT32 volume. Should one exist?

    I have been looking around on the machine for the Windows 10 upgrade log files and have not found them to figure out what error I am actually hitting.

    Where do I find the log files?

    Windows 10 Home x64 (Laptop), Windows 10 Pro x64 (Desktop)

    I had this error on upgrading my Dell Inspiron - see my post here to see if you have the same symptoms https://www.tenforums.com/installati...x80004005.html

    I've since clean installed W10 on the same laptop.
