Hi,

 

I'm trying to upgrade to windows 10 using the free upgrade option. Currently my HP ProBook 6440b is running windows 7. Whenever I try to start the download, I get the loading screen infinitely- I've restarted it a few times and it keeps on loading for hours. Everything's up to date and I checked my disk for errors. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm trying to get my laptop up and running Windows 10 before going to college (and before the free upgrade expires).

Try the upgrade by using the media creation tool

another work around is go to Start in your windows 7 HP Control Panel   and then anytime update   and go online saying 7 but window will show different link for 10 also  Worked for me, was in the same loop myself.

Good luck  make sure, if you do  not like what you get in 10  is to restore back to 7 keep copies of 7 productivity you need    then at anytime you can try update to 10 later free

Good time usage.. if no hic ups    Had 2 machines updating at the same time no problem  about 2 hrs to new look 10 sign in

This seems to have worked! However it's been stuck on checking for updates for about an hour and a half now, is that normal?
