    Well, I got the "Something Happened" error. Great.

    How far does it get before it blue screens? You can check the hash of the d/l here.

    I get to the screen right after the one where you select what to keep (files and app). The install then begins and gets to 8% every time and closes and gives me a "Something Happened" error telling me installation has failed.

    Safe to assume I am SOL until Microsoft comes up with a better upgrade method?

    That error is so vague it's hard to guess what's the cause - suggest you check the documentation for installation from that site - maybe even run those appaiser scripts - they check compatibility and stuff - meanwhile I'll try to replicate the error in VM...

    The same error has happened to lots of people. For some it's a language pack issue, while for others there is no known fix. I'll try some other stuff and see if I can figure out another install method or get Windows updater to work.

    Also odd that always stops at exactly 8% on the blue install screen. This is before the actual black screen install.

    Probably a dumb question: it wouldn't fail because the ISO that I mount and run is on my secondary HDD while my OS is installed on my SSD? Just trying to think of dumb little details that may be screwing with it.

    I can't install Windows 10 through any available methods. Out of luck until Microsoft creates a better system for this upgrade :/

    OK, just finished all sorts of hardware configs in VM with both Home and Pro from all the Win 7 editions, and can't replicate that error (got one HAL_ error but that was VM related) - also upgraded a partition on spare HDD with Win7 Pro with the ISO I linked to but still nada, Amigo.
    Maybe a clean install Win7 SP1 is best.

    Could it possibly be related to Windows Update errors? If I run Windows Update Diagnostic I get this as a result: http://puu.sh/jknmZ/f40dd46301.png
    Can't find a way to fix those 2 issues though.
