Hi Terry,

 

Thank you so much for getting back to us with the updates on this issue.

 

It would be great if you can send us a screenshot of the error message shown on the screen while trying to install Windows 10 Technical Preview on the computer in your next reply. To embed a screenshot image in your reply, please refer to this Wiki article: How to embed images on Microsoft Community.

 

For the time being, let us check if this is caused by any third party software conflicts on the computer. I suggest you to perform a clean boot on the computer and check if you are able to complete the installation process without any issues.

 

Perform a Clean Boot and find out which application/service is causing this issue.

 

A clean boot helps to eliminate software conflicts and to determine what is causing the problem. To perform a clean boot, please refer to the section “How to perform a clean boot” and follow the instructions for “Windows 8.1 and Windows 8” from this link:

After performing a clean boot, try installing the Windows 10 Technical Preview on the computer and check if you still get the same error message/code.

 

Important: After you have finished troubleshooting, refer to the section “How to reset the computer to start as usual after clean boot troubleshooting” for “Windows 8 and Windows 8.1”, to reset the computer to start as usual from the above link.

 

Please get back to us with the troubleshooting result and all the relevant information regarding this issue.
Regards,
Rajesh Govind - Microsoft Support Engineer
