Windows 7: Windows 10 upgrade problem

Windows 10 upgrade problem

I have a dual boot system. Windows 7 Home is the default boot.
One is Windows 10 Pro (upgraded from Windows 7 Pro - no problem upgrading) and the other one is Windows 7 Home.
I have a separate key for each system.
I am trying to upgrade the Windows 7 Home edition to Windows 10 Home edition.
When I click on the Microsoft emblem on the task bar, I have two options - Upgrade now or
Start download, upgrade later.
I have tried both but when the system shows restart now, the system reboots and nothing happens and the upgrade does not start. The Restart now screen comes back up.
When the Windows 7 Pro was being updated I had no problem.

Windows 7 Pro x64 Windows 10 Pro x64

It does not always work right away, millions of people are trying to install 10, give it time, and enjoy 7

Just gotta ask, why do you want 2 versions of 10 on the same PC

If you would be interested in a clean install of Win 10, Brink has a tutorial for that.

A clean install would mean all your programs need to be re-installed, nothing gets transferred from your Win 7 OS to Win 10.
