    Failing upgrade to 10. Windows 10 installation has failed!

    Just made a USB to upgrade the PC to Windows 10.
    Gets to the end of the process but before it restarts a little window pops up to say Windows 10 installation has failed!
    Attached the setuperr.log found in $WINDOWS.~BT

    Hi mikefizzled. Welcome to the TenForums @mikefizzled

    How did you create your USB key, was it with MS's Media Creation tool?

    Did you make the appropriate changes in BIOS recommended in tutorial below?

    Hi Ken.

    Just amended the first post with the attached file. I had disabled the antivirus though I think the PC is still set to secure boot. It's a Sony VAIO with the odd BIOS so I'll give that a shot now unless you can see anything else to change.

    So you also confirmed Fast Boot is off.

    You didn't say, how did you created USB key?

    Sorry, fast boot is off - has been since I had an odd bug with restarting.
    The USB was made via their media creator tool.

    I assigned a letter to and chkdsked the FAT32 partition of the drive. It found/fixed issues with the font files. Hopefully that'll sort one of the issues in the log.
