How to Prepare Your PC for a Successful Windows 10 Upgrade

If you are Performing a Clean Install by Booting from the Windows 10 install disk:

Try simplifying your configuration by keeping only your mouse and keyboard attached, that means:

  • Disconnecting multiple display monitors.
  • Remove discrete video cards, use the on-board graphics if your motherboard supports it.
  • Swap out memory modules - a RAM module might be corrupt - you can also ensure RAM sticks are installed slots 1 and 3. Your RAM modules might be corrupt, try scanning them for errors
  • If you have more than one hard disk installed, disconnect all except the target disk where Windows 10 will be installed.
  • Reset your BIOS Defaults.
  • Disconnect all external devices, since connected devices can sometimes confuse setup.

If setup is successful after performing these tasks, you can reinstall each removed component.

Try the following:

Click Start, type: powershell

Hit Enter

At the command prompt, enter the following command:

Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

Hit Enter

Exit

Restart your computer and see if the problem is resolved.

Thank you Andre Da Costa

now its working..


Good to see the Build Number on the download page.  That, in itself, is an improvement.

Now to see if 9879 will install over updated 9860.  It failed on 11/25/14.

Successfully updated from 9860 to 9879 on 12/01/14.  Don't know why it worked this time, since Win10 has not been booted since the failure on 11/25/14.

BTW, after the failure, it automatically reverted back to 9860.


Thanks a lot! For me de-installing the 3rd party Antivirus was the clue on both me machines

should i upgrade 9841 to 9926 or further ?? and how mch size of this update ?? how much time it takes to download ??
