Windows 7 Professional with SP1

HP DC7700 Dual Core 2.13 gHz 32 bit 

160 GB HD 2 GB Ram

 

 

In the process for upgrade to Windows10,  installed required updates.

 

The Windows10 Upgrade App icon never appeared on taskbar. Researched Microsoft site and ran  the troubleshooter which showed:

 

Error 0x8007005

 

Exploring this, found that the fix is a long, cumbersome process. 

 

Don't find option to sign on as Administrator. I had purchased the PC from a previous owner and have a Recovery Disc.  Why all other updates installed without any problem ?

 

Kindly assist.

You might try running the System Update Readiness Tool.

 

Or...try this, http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/media-creation-tool-install .

 

I did not have the Get Win 10 icon but I followed the yellow brick road laid out per the link...and downloaded the .iso file a few days ago.  I have no wish to upgrade any of my current Win 7 installs, but I want the capability of doing a clean install of Win 10...when I feel like it :).

Thank you neither of the links applicable to my Win 7 pc.

 

Like you, I am in no rush to upgrade to Windows 10 but curious to find out the reason for missing upgrade icon.

Wagnis,

       You could try installing windows update KB3035583, that is what put the w10 on my toolbar. I uninstalled it, because I thought it was a troublemaker, so you might want to check on it first.

Your problem rings a faint bell....I advised someone here to install KB 2919355 .....and they met with success.

Hello,

 

When you run Windows Update are all updates installed?

Re: Upgrade problem

 

KB2919355 - I'm running Windows 7.  When I went to download from standalone site, it listed option for Windows 8.1  

 

KB2919355- x86msu 319.00 mb

 

Is that the right one ?

 

Thank you

Jim -

 

KB3035583 was successfully installed before I reported my problem.

Yes, required updates are in place except for KB2919355.

 

Awaiting clarification about applicability because download site lists Windows 8.1

 

Thank you.

Thanks to all responders and helpful suggestions.

 

Happy to report that the issue resolved.  Upgrade Icon is now on my desk top !

 

It was SURT (System Upgrade Readiness Tool) that lead me to 22 missing, important Updates.

 

After installation and restart, the Upgrade icon appeared.

 

Again, thank you. .
