Windows 7: Error (0x8007042B - 0x2000D) when attempting upgrade from Win 7 to 10

22 Jan 2020   #11

Windows 10 Pro 64bit
Problem Solved SATA and SDD were the Cause

After hours of struggling. I disconnected all other drives except for the SSD which was the OS drive.
I set SATA to emulate AHCI not RAID.
Moved drive to first SATA port.

Ran upgrade successfully!!
