Upgrading to Win10 from Win7; fails every time with 0xc1900101-0x30018

Hi All.

I am a Mac user, but bought a PC on craigslist, that had windows Windows 7 on it. I am trying to upgrade it to Windows 10 and it is failing every time. I have downloaded the update package and installed that way and it fails at 32% of total install, approx 12% of installing drivers and features. I have done quite a bit of reading on the subject so i have tried the following:

-removed all unnecessary hardware
-rolled back drivers
-update to newest drivers
-removed antivirus
-removed all aftermarket software
-attempted upgrade by installing via flash drive and by disc

there are probably others that i cannot recall in my frustration.

i have read about a video card causing issues. The mobo does not have onboard video and this machine has a GeForce 8600 GTS SLI, without the 2nd card installed.

not sure if it is worth buying a cheap card to install to see if that is the issue...
y
i am sure i will recall other specifics once we start some conversation here, but i would greatly appreciate your help. My intent is to donate this machine so i want to ensure it is working properly so i do not have to offer free tech advice in the future that i am not qualified to give.

Thanks in advance and Happy Holidays

System File Checker indicates that there are some corrupt system files, but this is way above my head so i wouldn't know how to correct them.

i will post the log here when i can.

I ran SFC as Admin and tried to open the log and it opens notepad and says Access Denied. Never had that issue before...

I copied the final to another location and managed to move it to my mac and post it here.
