    Many reports of people clean installing 8.1 then immediately upgrading to 10 successfully.
    Means you would have to backup your data first though. Image backup would be the best way to go.
    That was how I resolved the issues on one of my troublesome devices.

    Created an 8.1 image on a second drive
    Deleted all partitions on drive c
    Disconnected all perpipherals
    Removed or disabled in bios all un-needed components (such as soundcard, tuner etc)
    Installed basic win 8.1 install
    Didn't bother installing any chipset drivers or anything else
    Upgraded to Win10 within Windows 8.1 via USB and confirmed activated
    Reactivated required hardware via bios (as applicable)
    Disabled Win10 updating drivers
    Downloaded latest drivers direct from manufacturer (Nvidia, Intel, Quallcomm, Gigabyte etc)
    Rebooted into Win10 USB installation media & clean installed Win10
    Reintegrated all backed up files etc into the clean installation.

    Okay.... here's how I solved it.

    After receiving the 80070005 error several times, I followed the help screens and ended up on a web page titled "Microsoft Answers" Or something like that. On that page was a recommended repair utility, "Tweaking.com - Windows Repair". I followed the instructions and ran the program, went back to try one more time to install, and voila! it installed flawlessly.

    I got to that program as follows, as best as I recall because the error no longer exists, but....
    when I got the error there was a link to "help for the problem" don't remember what it's called sorry. Then a page opened up and I tried what was on that page to no avail. The last item on that page was "none of this worked" or somesuch so I picked that and ended up on the Microsoft whatever page where the link to the utility program was found.

    Tweaking.com - Windows Repair is one of those programs you want to back up things before you run it as it seems to me to be a very aggressive cleanup utility. Read the instructions carefully.

    Backup is built into tweaking.com's Windows Repair All-In-One. Make sure you do all the steps, not just the last (Repair) step.

    Has anyone tried this?
    Yep. got the 80070005 error. Went through the DCOM stuff. Even though I was a local administrator. When I added my user account to both the access and the launch and activation permissions with full access to everything it worked.

    Well puting on a 3 month image has let me update now. Before no errors or anything just didn't run.
    But IO an having so many problems, Outlook not sending, but receiving OK, now, I may well go back!
    Running 'sfc /scannow' from an elevated command prompt fixes the outlook error , well documented 'feature' on new upgrades.

    Now Install Fails With No Error Message


    I was plagued with the 8007005 error. I followed the instructions below. My personal user account wasn't listed in either place, even though I am administrator under my personal account.

    And it worked... or so I thought... it downloaded the updates, fiddled around, finally gave me the message that it was going to reboot my computer. I pressed the Restart button and the next thing I got was an "Configuring Windows 10 - do not turn off your computer". But when it finally rebooted I was still on Win 7, and my update history says only that the update failed... no error code of any kind. See the image. I'm trying again but without any kind of error message, what to do?

    Description

    The error occurs when you attempt to install Windows updates. When you try to click on check for updates in Windows Update with administrator privileges you cannot install updates and instead you receive error code 80070005.

    Step-by-step instruction

    Error code 80070005 is caused by a number of factors some of which include an error in the DCOM configuration or the Automatic Updates service. You can begin to solve the problem by seeking verification for the DCOM configuration. To do this simply click on Start on your main toolbar on the desktop and then choose Run from the pop-up menu. When the Command Prompt appears type in dcomcnfgand then press the Enterkey. When the Component Services window opens double click on the Component Services folder and then double click on the Computers folder. Right click on My Computer and then choose Properties from the drop down menu. When the Properties window opens click on the COM Security tab and then click on Edit Default and then check to see that the correct accounts are listed

    In the event that one of your accounts is missing you can simply click on Add and then choose Advanced. Click on Locations and then choose Local Computer Name and then choose OK. Proceed to click on Find Now and then press down the CTRL key on your keyboard. Choose the correct Account Names and click OK twice.Under User Names choose the account that you added and then choose Local Access in the Permissions area and then place a check mark in the Allow column and then click OK.

    Once you complete this process it is necessary to confirm the default settings for DCOM. You can do this by choosing the Default Propertiestab and make sure Enable Distributed COM has a check mark placed inside the selection box,Identifyis checked under Default Impersonation, and Connect has a check mark under Default Authentication and then click OK. Restart your computer when you have completed this process.

    Just connect your harddisk to another pc with windows 7 on it and then delete the previous system drive and the windows drive and recreate it then install from there or connect to your pc and start installing

    I was over at a Microsoft community forum. Using a post there, I was able to create an install DVD, and update Windows without issue. Perhaps this will be of use to others encountering errors.

    I did not do a clean install, only an update. Also, I did not uninstall my AV, only disable it. Until I disabled it, the install would not work. Click the link to StrongEagle's post.

    Tweaking.com repair program did it!! After trying various fixes, I had the same problem many faced-Win 10 PRO just would not install from a ISO image burned onto a DVD (same image installed in other machines). Did all the repairs in Tweaking All-in-one repair step by step and tooka while but after it was done and rebooted, now W10 DVD installs fine. Thanks so much for this find!
