I've tried upgrading my Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit 25 times, and it's failed 25 times.  To save time retyping everything I've done, I'm going to provide this link to my post on MS Ask the community.  I even added a bit about how Media Creation Tool also failed to install Windows 10.


It's getting to the point I may have to find a local computer guru and pay them to try and determine why Windows 10 won't install even after all the system checks say my system is Windows 10 compatible.  And it's getting closer and closer to the time when this upgrade will no longer be free.

I read that other post and if that was my machine I would download an ISO image from Microsoft and completely format the hard drive and install Windows 10 from scratch. It is quick and easy and it avoids many problems like the ones that you say you are experiencing. 


I have done the installation of Windows 10 about 30 times now on many different computers, and the whole process takes less than one hour after you have the ISO image ready.


Good luck.

I agree with Rocky Bennett.

And, if a clean install from the ISO image doesn't work - then you'll have to wonder if the system is suitable for W10.
Incompatibilities aren't always obvious (and they don't always show up right away).


Make sure that you save your copy of W7 and the product key - just in case you have to go back to it.
