Windows 7: Windows 10 free upgrade compatability

Windows 10 free upgrade compatability

Why does Microsoft not check for compatibility issues? I allowed the free upgrade. after the first reboot I had a big circle with a zero. This went to 32% and stuck there for half an hour. I was unable to do anything with my PC. In desperation I put a second bootable HD and used it to format the first. I re-installed Windows 7. I tried again and it froze again at 32%

Clearly there are issues which Microsoft has ignored.

Hi,
Either that or you didn't do the basics first,
#1 completely uninstall your antivirus program what ever that happens to be since you have No System spec's we can only guess
#2 Give it more than a half hour depending on the time of day you decided to do this at

Asus dual core processor 4.2G
2G DDR2
Creative labs Audigy

Zone alarm fire wall.
Avast anti virus.

Does stopping at 32% mean anything ? As a programmer I would know what area is covered in the installation.

I can try by removing the software again bur would like to know why stop at 32%

Hi,
I would advice to remove your third party firewall and antivirus completely first.

Windows 10 is picky on what virus program it will allow to be installed, same goes for the firewall.

What surprises me, windows 10 should of told you to uninstall Zone alarm & Avast before starting the installation.
