    Windows 10 upgrade woes

    So I found a little time to upgrade my wife's computer from W-7 to W-10. I took the easy route and used the online Microsoft upgrade webpage. Every thing went smoothly until it was in the last stage copying files. When it got to the 85% complete stage it froze. The freeze was attributed to an Error Code 0xC1900101 ? 0x30018. I have searched and searched the Internet for a solution. What I learned is that Microsoft really does not know what is causing these freezes, and there are a myriad of suggestions to try that reportedly worked for someone. Over the past two days I think I have tried all of them but one. That entails upgrading from a usb instead of the net. I have the usb copy made and am ready to do a basic upgrade. There is no reason to do a clean installation. If I understand correctly all I need to do is to start Windows 7, open the usb drive, and run a setup drive on it. I do not have to go through the boot up, etc. required for a clean installation. Am I on the right path?

    I haven't upgraded to windows 10 but I got a surface book pro last week. They released a major update yesterday that solved a lot of flakiness.

    It appears that you were right. I had a good bit of time to play around with the problem yesterday. I got a good book and sat by the computer reading while I gave the download upgrade another try before resorting to a usb drive upgrade. In about 2.5 hours it was installed. I had to do a bit of tweaking to get connected to our network, but that was it.

    Thanks to all who joined in on the challenge.

    Love to know how you like working with Win 10. From what I've read, it seems the transition from 7 to 10 is the most logical and least painful.
    I keep reading that enterprises upgrading from Win 7 should just skip over Win 8 and go right to 10.

    Good luck - I'll be hiding in the wagon!

    Anyone know why I keep having to restart my computer after upgrading to Win 10? Connection will work then randomly different websites don't. I checked and it says I have all updates. Thanks.

    To me W-10 seems to be Windows 7 with some cosmetic changes. This was an upgrade from W7. Do not waste your time with 8. The need to upgrade to 10 stems from Microsoft's announcement that they are discontinuing updates, including security fixes, in February 2016 to lower versions. Also, the upgrade will not be available free after that.

    Ya I had windows 10 for 2 days...then the major upgrade and a lot things changed....like trying to find things again was moved elsewere. Windows 10 really wants to control you that's for sure....had a lot of problems finding internet 11....sometimes there it is sometimes you can't find it....Last time I found it pin it to your taskbar and then it stays.
    The email is my real problem with no real solution for it yet.

    Once you downloaded it and if you like it you really need to do a clean install...even if you go back to 8 or 7 after the upgrade from what I read you need to do a clean install to which you had.
    I really do like windows 10 cortana.....saves some time with all that clicking stuff.
    Just hope they fix email program is all...they went way backwards on that...its so primitive in windows 10.
    Thunderbird won't even support it from what I could find out and they not even gonna try.

    I upgraded from 8.1, but then had Geek Squad remotely for a couple hours straightening things out.

    Something you should do is backup your Windows 7 and do a clean install and that think you'll figure out That it will install correctly. Then do a restore of your Windows 7 files, just do The Windows Easy Transfer on your Windows 7 first. I came across a similar problem on doing an upgrade where it was freezing on a driver, so I did a clean install and at work correctly
