    No configuration follows after the upgrade win 10 restarts the computer

    My reserved upgraded to win 10 attempts to install itself. The app restart the computer to prepare for configuring win 10. But no configuration follows, and immediately win 7 reboots again. There is no error message!! The app tries this every half hour, so I had to set the upgrade "after three days" to keep my computer usable.

    in Windows Update is a similar announcement that the computer must be restarted to install the update. The result is the same: nothing and no error code. However, there is in Windows Update something strange going on: The history of updates is cleared two days ago completely, but the last two updates ( KB3021917 and an update from Microsoft Essentials), and Update does not search for updates, "because there is an update in treatment."

    supplement:
    to my surprise Windows Update spontaneously started looking for updates and installed the 16 security updates of August 11 . Result: as previously : Update proposes to restart my computer to configure for win 10 (and warns that it will take long). Unfortunately it is very fast: after half a minute we're back in Windows 7 and nothing has changed (and no error message).

    As mentioned, no error messages, so I can not search what I should do. In the Microsoft Community nobody answers on this problem (posted there on 11 of August). Anybody any Idea what to do ?

    You could try creating install media and upgrade using it.

    Thanks Joe, I didn't no that an install medium could be used for the initial upgrade, I thought it is only for a clean install after the update (that is necessary to get win10 for free). I give it a try.

    Even with the install media you should start the upgrade from within Windows if you want the free upgrade and not have to have a Windows 10 key.

    The result: it worked till phase 2: the files were prepared, after that the computer restarts and something goes wrong before Win 10 is configured. The old win 7 is restored.
    0xC1900101 - 0x40017, during SECOND_BOOT, error in BOOT-operation.
    This error message leads to proposed solution in the wiki part of the Microsoft community. I go trying them (it are many possible sources of the problem and some complicated solutions) we will see.
