Windows 7 Home Premium/Win 10 Upgrade Problem


DJW

Recommended Posts

I know we talked about this last year when the Win 10 upgrade came out but I cannot find what the solution was.

 

When we were in NE last week tried to upgrade a HS friends computer to W10 from Win 7 Home Premium. Win 10 upgrade would not dowload, it just keep showing loading but never did. I tried several times and got the same results. All the updates were done on Win 7 and all other programs in preperation for the upgrade. Does anyone remember what the solution was? The friend has 2 masters but is not that tech savvy. She just finished her 2nd round of chemo in 3 years last Thursday and now is looking at a double mastectomy. Was trying to help her out before the July deadline.

I have found that sometimes the best way is to download Windows separately and install from a DVD or USB drive. You can get Windows 10 here:

Edit: Be sure to run the setup program from within Windows 7 (do NOT boot from the DVD or USB drive).

Guys

 

I tried both of your suggestions when I was there and nothing The loading circle just keeps turnning, all night long. As I recall there was some kind of file glitch with the Win 7 Home Premium and Win 10 upgrade exe file?

Dennis,

Use admin tools to look at al your partitions. If you have a tiny one that is like 70 mb expand it to 500 mb and see what happens. Use this tool, it's free and very good. https://www.partitionwizard.com/partitionmagic/partition-magic-for-windows7.html

Thanks RV

 

But we are back in BV now and heading to VA for our GS's HS Graduation. Going to be on the East Coast for the summer. I suggested that her sister's husbands company IT guy take a look at it.
