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

Yeah now I know, I was stupid to use that EaseUs which messed up.

Now things look fine for me, just Windows 10 has some bugs.

One of them is Cortana cant remember name , I can see template instead of my name like "Hello <user_name>"

Second if I arrange desktop items by type and if I restart, it goes back as it was not the way I arranged.

Third long booting time, takes really long to actually see login screen and then desktop.

Shutdown time has increased as well, takes long.

You're talking to a die hard 8.1 fan here and the more I hear about Windows 10, the less I like it.

I'll upgrade when it becomes absolutely necessary which won't be until 2023 when support for 8.1 ends.

Anyway, glad to hear you sorted it out.

Just a "shot into the bushes": Try to rename or delete the folder "Windows.old", if available.

Also a check using this KB-Article may be helpful.

Also some partition managers - as mentioned above - may be the problem (see Is EaseUS Partition Master 10.5 a Windows10 upgrade killer?). Also Linux Installs can be the reason.

Otherwise try to analyze the log-files (see my article

Windows 10: Upgrade error 0xC1900101 – 0x20004 for hints).

Yes, on the one (out of four) PCs that didn't want to update, this was the rather obscure cause. Changing the partition status from OEM to Recovery enabled the update (from 8.1).

j,

Hello All,

30% is the point, windows wants to restart the computer the first time at upgrade.

The problem at me was my dual-boot with Linux Mint via BIOS (not UEFI) and its bootloader grub2.

After doing a repair of the bootloader with win7 CD , the installation of windows 10 went on !!

After installing complete, i repaired the grub2 and all is running fine now !!

hope i could help someone......
