Hello my name is ***** ***** I will do whatever I possibly can to help answer your questions. Are you trying to install it using the windows update option?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I Charles

yes

Expert:  Charles A. Roberts replied 2 years ago.
OK there is another way you can install but it would be from disk and is usually error free Microsoft has been having problems with the windows update feature for the upgrade. I am going to send you a link in just a moment to download it and you will have to burn this to disk. Do you have burning capability?
Expert:  Charles A. Roberts replied 2 years ago.
This is the link: Make sure you choose the tool for windows 10 64 bit. It will instruct you on burning it or actually saving it to the hard drive t a folder usually my documents or downloads. You will need to burn the ISO and when it's burnt put the disk in and you can load it from windows. Let me know if you run into problems.http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Expert:  Michelle replied 2 years ago.
Are you back to the original windows you had earlier?Try to run system restore by selecting an old date when windows 7 was working fine.
Expert:  Michelle replied 2 years ago.
For windows 7 click the windows menu button select search type in system restore and hit enter. Now the system restore dialog box will open. click the round circle like radio button which says choose a different restore point and then hit the next button on the next screen or box you will see a check box at the bottom says show more restore point.Click on it to put a check mark on it you will get many old dates click on one of the old date and hit next and now hit finish. The computer will restart on its own while it restart please do not interrupt it will take around 10 mins to get you back to working windows without any problem.

Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist. Can you tell me the brand an model number of your laptop?
If you burned your Windows 10 disk using the Microsoft media creation tool then I know the disk is good because I've used it myself. That would mean that in order to boot the disk some minor BIOS changes need to be made on your laptop.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Good morning. I think I may not have the time zones correct. It's now 5:40 AM my time. I tried the Teamviewer connection. I believe it timed out. Please run the Teamviewer link once again. It should give you a new password ***** retaining the same ID.
