Open it, double click Setup to start upgrade.
    When I double click the .iso file a window comes up asking what app I want to use to open this file.

    Odd. Anyway, no problems, select Explorer (the one showing a folder icon).

    Yes. That's the Windows 10 setup program. When you double click it, so called Windows UAC (User Account Control) prompt will be shown because it requires administrative privileges. Simply click Yes to allow setup to start:

    Do not panic when first nothing happens, it can take up to a minute for setup to start. Just wait patiently, when setup finally starts it is quite self-explanatory. Just follow the on-screen prompts / instructions.

    If any doubts, if you do not know what to click or how to proceed, come back here and post your question. I just started setup from virtual DVD (ISO image) to be ready in case you need further assistance and can get screenshots fast to show you how to proceed, where and what to click

    It may be that this default wasn't set in 10240 (I don't have a system image to hand for 10240 to restore and check). 10240 can certainly mount .iso files. If asked for the app to open them you should choose Windows Explorer. You may have to browse for it. It's C:\Windows\explorer.exe

    The update failed at the same place it always has in the past. But this is the first time it ever gave me error codes in Windows after the update was rolled back.
    OXC1900101- ox318
    The installation failed in the FIRST_BOOT phase with an error during SYSPREP operation.

    Is your whole Windows installation on drive C:, or have you possibly moved some of your user profile folders (Documents, Pictures, Music and so on) to an other drive than C:?

    Everything is on C: drive. I do have an external USB HDD, and a USB thumb drive for backups and storage only.

    What antivirus software you are using? Sometimes the AV application is preventing the upgrade, especially third party programs like Avast.

    My next try would be to first disable / turn off both AV and Firewall, then run setup again.

    I'm using 360 Total Security and GlassWire Network Security

    But these shouldn't affect anything after the first reboot, would they?
