Windows update error 80007003 when upgrading to Windows 10

Hi,

    I've tried installing windows 10 from windows 8.1 about 5 times now, and each time the bar is about 3/4 of the way through 'preparing installation' it comes up with error 80007003. I have tried numerous solutions, such as deleting the data store, but it still comes across the same error.

    Thanks in advance

I can't do that though, as it requires you to have a windows 10 product key, which you get from upgrading to windows 10 from windows 8.1

I'm also having trouble installing Windows 10.

I, like you, keep getting the 80007003 error when installing via Windows Update.

Therefore, Xircal, performing a clean install is not an option (sadly) because I then won't be able to activate my free upgrade.

I've also tried to install via the Media Creator tool, but that stops at around 24 % with a message that says "An error has occurred".

Try resetting Windows Update components to see if it helps. You can use the Fixit on the following site: https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/971058

This doesnt work either, tried Windows Media Creation tool to upgrade, after 22% it stucks and says
"Windows 10 Installation has failed"

with title box

"Something happened" which is hilarious , where are all these MS tech guys are, cant they resolve these issues ?

Alright guys I found solution for my particular problem which was giving me error 80070003.

Issue was that I bought laptop with preinstalled Windows 8 which later updated to 8.1

I actually re partitioned hard drive using EaseUs partition manager which actually messed up my Image Recovery partition , due to which I could not even reset or refresh or create recovery drive.

I found a solution which actually worked for me

check your partition using diskpart and see if this works for you, hope some of you might find this helpful :)

But tbh windows 10 actually taking long time to boot and takes long time to install all features, and plenty of bugs I am discovering since I started using it , hopefully new updates might sort out these issues.

Let me know if you guys find this helpful and share your experience using Windows 10.

No need to use third party tools with Windows 7 upwards.

In 8.1, right click the Start button and go to Disk management.

Right click the drive you want to partition and choose "Shrink Volume" and then follow instructions on screen. It's as simple as that.
