Started download 2 days ago after finally deciding to install it.  Have looked at symbol on my Toshiba laptop for months then tried my daughters version on her HP laptop and decided I could do this.  Well waited approx 8 hours of watching the thing-a-mabob go around and finally stopped it.  Started it again a few days ago and watched the same go around for 22 hours!!!!!!!!   No nothing or interruptions so finally quit again.  Any words of wisdom from someone please?  I am running Windows 7 Home Premium.  Can supply Toshiba info if needed.  Thank you

 Go to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 and download the Media Creation Tool.  Run it and download the ISO and burn it to a DVD.  Then put the DVD in the PC you want to upgrade.  It will ask you a few questions, then run 30 - 40 min., reboot a couple of times and within an hour or two you'll be up and running.  Be sure you're up to date on Windows Updates before starting.


 Good luck.

Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

I agree with Niweg, just use the media creation tool and download a fresh ISO. With that ISO you can do any kind of upgrade or clean install that you'd like. I would recommend a clean install using the ISO. There are many people here that can help you out along the way.
