    Ok so I tried to reinstall windows 7 from the disc as you would the upgrade same problem same crash with windows 7. I then formatted my HDD after making a USB drive with windows 10 on it. I've now reinstalled windows 7 as a clan install I will then try to upgrade from a clean 7 once all the updates finish.

    Same problem with mine. Trying to avoid a clean install - want to leverage an upgrade. Appears to be a major bug with the Windows 10 upgrade. The error trapping and associate messages are poor. Hopefully there is a fix posted soon.

    I just found this fix. Haven't tried it yet.

    I checked my system locale and it is indeed set to "English (United States)." Although, the error message looked like this for me:

    But maybe the two errors are related?

    Hey Guys, can i just check that you've tried redownloading the installation files?

    The Microsoft KB points to these errors being caused by corrupt/missing files within the installation directory.

    I've tried this 4 times, starting with a totally empty C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download directory each time. All fail the same way with the 80070005 error.

    I found a solution and I think it might work for you too since you problem seems very similar. It turns out that there was some problem with the boot configuration data and I simply had to rebuild it. I found good instruction of how to do it here - - look for "Step 1.3 (optional) - repair Boot Configuration Data". More clear and straight forward instructions can be found here , but they only work for legacy boot mode, if you have UEFI boot mode you will need to use following commands instead:

    diskpart (opens Disk Partitioning tool)
    select disk 0
    list volume (please note the number of the volume that has no drive letter assigned and has FAT32 listed in Fs column)
    select volume <the number of ~500 MB FAT32 volume with no drive letter, or with label ESP>
    assign letter=Z: (gives drive letter Z: to EFI System Partition)
    exit (closes Disk Partitioning tool)
    cd /d Z:\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\ (changes current folder in Command Prompt window)
    attrib Z:\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD -h -r -s (removes hidden, read-only and system attributes from BCD folder)
    ren Z:\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD BCD.old (renames BCD folder to BCD.old)
    bootrec /rebuildbcd (retries the rebuild)
