Re the edit to registry, I checked the registry and it already had that entry!

22 Combined Problems were found with the packages files, these files need to be replaced (These mainly only effect installing Windows Updates.)
The SFC (System File Checker) doesn't scan and replace some of these files, so you may need to replace them manually.

OK I have cured my updating problems, repaired the corrupt Package Files, Win 10 installed and now in use.

There is one easy cure for Win 7 to Win 10, use your Win 7 install DVD and do repair. I had forgotten this, when my son a computer geek said Dad surely you can do a repair, reawakened my memory cells. All is now fine!

OK Shane I'll check that out. Meantime I found this on the internet after doing some searching, apparently it came from Microsoft.

“Locate the registry key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade]
It should exist, but if not, create it.
Create a new DWORD (32-bit) Value with Name = “AllowOSUpgrade” (without the quotes), and set the Value = 0x00000001.” (Source: microsoft)

Any chance you have a link of where you found that info?

I think I've seen that posted in the www.windowssecrets.com Lounge forum in the Win 10 section but there have been that many threads/posts with people having problems upgrading to Win 10, it would probably take me an age to find it and in some cases, a few have been referred to WR which has resolved the problem.

Correct, as a long time subscriber I found access to the info, after my son gave me a reminder.

I have the URL but not sure if I would be breaking any protocol with Fred Langa or your good selves.

I had a complete image BU of my HDs so took the plunge and it worked perfectly.

It's usually acceptable to post links to other forums that contain a solution or how to for a given problem.

I can't remember now if there was an accompanying MS link as reference to the registry fix, but if you could check that out then perhaps post that bit or whatever.

No - Shane is looking for a reference to that Allow Upgrade registry edit.

While that isn't an active link you have posted, that is for performing a repair install of Win 7.

After over 28 failed upgrade attempts, that worked for me. Took around 3 hours total.

Now a big BUT, having now got Win 10 up and running, quite honestly, for me, I don't think it is much of an improvement over Win 7. It has nothing new that I find useful, in fact, at present it seems all gloss with no gain.

Mind that last statement is my own feelings at present. YMMV as they say!

Disregarding the problems I had after upgrading, I wasn't overly impressed with it either and am now back with Win 7.

I have a similar intention. I use my PC as a hobby for editing my photos assembling videos, some in 3D. Win 10 wants to take control of my storage habits of all images, etc.  Not any help for me. Plus as an OaP who loves flying, but can only now do this using a simulator set-up, again 10 intrudes. So my Macrium BU is my way back to 'sanity'.

Maybe in the future 10 may improve sufficient to make it more user appealing.

QED.
