    Hi All,

    Thought I'd take the Plunge & Upgrade...Everything going OK, Until it starts to Install then Finishes with the Error Message above....??? Tried with All Services Disabled & No Start-Up Programs, But Still the same...Gets to about 18% Then Abruptly finishes with the above...

    Anyone have any ideas?? Thought I'd try & Upgrade to 8.1 Tomorrow & then Windows 10 Pro?? Could that Work...

    On Installation are any log Files Created, which may point to the cause...

    Hi Thanks for your Reply...No AV Installed & Only Windows Firewall is Enabled, It Does have Windows Defender On...

    I Did STOP All Services & Startup Items from loading, But It failed with the same error...??

    Just a Quick Heads-Up....

    Managed to get Win 10 Pro Installed by Burning the ISO to a DVD & Running the Setup from the DVD, I initially Mounted the ISO Using Slysoft Virtual clonedrive, It looks like the Installation Process didn't like mounting the ISO in this manner & Just wanted to be installed via the Old fashioned method of using Physical Media....

    All now Installed & Activated...

    For other people experiencing this problem, in addition to removing all 3rd party security software:
    -Uninstall any 3rd party VPN software (OpenVPN, WatchGuard, Juniper, Cisco, etc) AND the associated virtual NIC driver
    -Uninstall any application level virtualization software (Symantec Workspace Virtualization/Altiris SVS)
    -Uninstall any 3rd party virtualization hypervisors (VMware Player/Workstation, VirtualBox, etc)
    -Uninstall any ISO mounting software (Daemon Tools, Virtual Clone Drive, Magic ISO, PowerISO, etc)
    -Drivers for any other non-standard hardware

    The more generic your Windows is, the easier it is to upgrade
    Once you have upgraded, you can slowly reinstall all the things you had removed successfully for the most part. DO turn on System Protection before you do this. It is off by default! :mad:
