    Windows 10 will not install

    I have four different machines that I am trying to upgrade to windows 10. I have tried to use the upgrade icons on the P/C and each time it fails with the error: '"WindowsUpdate_80070005 OR WindowsUpdate_dt000"‎ (0)'. I have tried to use the media creation tool. The tool will download but not execute. I tried following the steps outlined in "Something Happened", using msconfig to disable all non-windows services and deleting "C:\$Windows.~BT ". The one common element with all of the machines is Windows is running on a SSD. Has anyone else had this problem with the OS running on an SSD?

    Problem has nothing to do with OS running on SSD.

    When you ran the "media creation tool" did you choose "Upgrade this PC now" or "Create installation media for another PC"?

    Suggest you choose "Create installation media for another PC" and choose to download the ISO from which you can burn an installation DVD which you can then use on other devices.

    I tried that on 3 different machines. In all cases the program would not launch or the program would fail (no reason).

    enabled the hidden admin account. The media creation tool will not launch. Upgrading to W10 from the task bar also failed. I give up....Thanks for the help. I will wait for MS to do something about this...if ever.

    Clean install: How to Clean Install Windows 10
    Scroll down to...
    Download Windows 10 and Create Installation Media

    Something to take note of:
    If you want to perform a clean install of Windows 10 and haven’t upgraded to Windows 10 yet on your Windows 7 or 8.1 PC, you have some extra work to do. You’ll need to take advantage of Microsoft’s upgrade offer before performing a clean install. (Obviously, if you have a PC that came with Windows 10 or you’ve purchased your own Windows 10 license, this isn’t necessary.)
    When you upgrade a Windows 7 or 8.1 system to Windows 10, the installer confirms that you have a “genuine Windows” system installed and activates your computer for use with Windows 10. Note that you don’t actually get a Windows 10 product key — instead, your computer’s hardware is registered with Microsoft’s servers. When you install Windows 10 on that PC again in the future, it will check in with Microsoft’s servers, confirm it’s installed on a registered PC, and automatically activate itself.
    Instead of running the ISO while Windows is running, attempt installation while booted to the DVD/USB W10 setup disk.




    Having a current drive image should go without saying here.
    DRIVE IMAGING
    Invest a little time and energy in a well thought out BACKUP regimen and you will have minimal down time, and headache.

    Build your own system; get everything you want and nothing you don't.

    ASUS X99 Deluxe, Core i7-5960X, Corsair Hydro H100i, Plextor M6e 256GB M.2 SSD, Corsair DOMINATOR Platinum 32GB DDR4@2666, W8.1 64 bit,
