Unable to upgrade to Win 10 - no errors shown

I have been trying to upgrade my HP G62 Notebook PC for a week now. I get to 88% configuring and then the "shutting down" screen comes on. It then restarts in Win 7.

I have followed all the steps to get ready for Win 10 upgrade but having no sucess.

Thanks for any help.

Well the Media Creation Tool also failed. Everything was going good and Tool stated that is had installed Win 10 was going to restart. Then a box came up saying "Something Happened" "Windows 10 installation has failed" OK.

I will have to try the Clean Install route. Thanks for the help.

If you have never upgraded to 10 from 7 or 8.1 yet, then a clean install will not activate. You would have to buy a W10 key.

You can try the 1st link I posted, good luck with that.

Have you ever use the Technical Preview ? How do you know you`ll even like Windows 10 ?

AddRam - I was going to try the "Clean Install Windows 10 Directly without having to Upgrade First" from the tutorials.

It says that Win 10 will activate after install.

I have another laptop that has Win 10 installed and it seems to be OK (for now at least).

I have not used Technical Preview. Do you have a url?

THanks

LordSnow - Thanks for your suggestion.

My C Drive has over 25 GB free. I tried the "Clean Install Windows 10 Directly without having to Upgrade First" 2 times.

Both times I get the "Something Happened" box and that Win 10 installation has failed. I have 23 failed win 10 installs showing in Update history.

I have tried ALL ways to install listed in Tutorials. Something is "Wrong" with my Win 7. I have run SFC many times but can not find anything.

I think I may have to do a Clean Install of Win 7 and then try upgrading to Win 10.

I heard a fishing story that said M$ is allowing using a qualifying os's activation key to activate win-10.
I have none I want to use to test it with.
