    You get this if you try upgrading to a different base language than the existing system, or one is the 'N' version and the other isn't. To be able to keep personal files and apps you must make install media for the same language and type of system as you currently are running.

    Using the same disk that I did the Windows 7 to 10 upgrade with; I downloaded the ISO before the upgrade and created the DVD. My opinion is that one of the updates, upgraded the version number and the old one is no longer valid.

    How did you try to start the upgrade? Did you boot from the DVD? If so, that's not how to do it.

    You have to run the Setup.exe on the DVD from within your existing Windows, same as the instructions for using a USB. And, the same as when using a USB, you must eject the DVD when it says it's copied all the files and about to reboot for the first time. You need to boot to your hard drive to continue the upgrade, not boot the DVD which would then offer to do a clean install.

    5. To Do a Repair Install of Windows 10 with USB Installation Media

    A) If you have not already, you will need to create a Windows 10 installation USB flash drive.

    B) Connect and open the USB flash drive, and run the setup.exe file to start Windows 10 Setup.

    I put the DVD in the DVD player and clicked Setup.exe while on Windows 10 Desktop as Brink said to do. I read the complete instructions and followed them word for word from Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    No more, I am tired of getting beat on.

    Bringing this uptodate, I was able to do the following without losing anything:
    I was running ver 1703 and it kept trying to install updates for 1709 which failed; so I took a shot at installing 1709 and got a big surprise from M$. I ran the ISO and it gave me options for installing "Student" and "Pro" while I was running "Home" so me being greedy as I am, I selected "Pro" and did the upgrade/install and it never asked for a key. Lo and behold this morning I got a watermark saying it was not activated with the same being presented in "Settings".

    So here I sit with only one option of paying $99 for an upgrade because, as far as I know, there is no way to revert back to 1703 which was upgraded from Windows 7.

    If you have upgraded to 1709, you have 10 days to 'go back to the previous build' (1703).
    If unsure, there's a tutorial (you can search for it).

    Note: once you have installed & activated Win 10, you can download it and clean install as many times as you wish; activation should be automatic.

    You can do a clean install of Windows 10 Home.

    There is also a way to downgrade Windows 10 Pro to Home by changing a couple of registry keys and then doing an in-place repair install of Windows.
