Hi there and welcome
Are you saying windows 10 indicates it needs to be activated Reg? You got this message after doing the upgrade or it demands it before you do the upgrade?
What was the exact message you got when the upgrade failed?
The question I asked was
Can you please respond to this.
What your talking about is a service the website offers, please ignore it and respond to my questions...
ok, can you download and run the tool on my link below to manually perform the upgrade
Run it this way and tell me exactly what happens please
How long dd you leave it when it was at 99%? as that last step can take up to an hour.
ok do this please
Press the windows key + E
Go to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download and delete all the files that are in the folder (but don't delete the folder itself).
Then restart the computer and use my instructions again to try to do the install.
Let me know the results please.
