Well, I decided to upgrade from Windows 7 to 10.   I clicked on the "10" icon in the lower right section 

of the taskbar, a box flashed up in the center of the screen saying "Please Wait" and then nothing.

I mean absolutely nothing.  

Closed all apps. and browsers.  Still nothing.

Rebooted the machine.   Nothing.

I did go to a MIcrosoft site which told me to download and run an issue detector which would seach for 

problems and fix them and then I should re-try the download.   I ran it, it said it fixed the issues and then 

tried the down load.   Nothing.

I have plenty of memory, a good internet connection.

BTW, I waited for 1/2 hour, 1 hour, and longer between attempts.   Something should have happened in that 

amount of time.    NO?

 

Any help with this would be appreciated.

 

Regards, 

Len

If the upgrading failing is strongly recommended to download the Windows 10 ISO and burn it on USB/DVD.

You can try upgrade but probably will fail it sound like the Windows 7 is severely corrupted.

In order to succeed you might need to format your hard drive and start from the beginning.

 

Here are some guidance you might find really useful.

What do you mean, "Windows 7 is severely corrupted.  There is nothing wrong with my Windows 7.

Works fine.   I just wanted to upgrade to 10.   

No idea how to format my hard drive.

If the previous version of Windows is working perfectly fine you will have no problem with the upgrade that I can ensure you

Well, it turns out there was nothing wrong with 7.   I went to the Microsoft site and downloaded 10 from there and it went through without a hitch.

Phew!!!

Yes you will face no problems during downloading and preparing.

The problems will occur once the upgrade start installing new files and etc.

My recommendation is to try to upgrade with removing all of the software but keeping the files.

The additional software can be always reinstalled.
