    Question Win 10 Upgrade Error 80070057

    As an IT Admin I have made efforts (no domain, separate campuses, walking alot) to upgrade many of our Win 7 Pro systems to Win 10 Pro... but error after error occur (almost the same situation as with the 'update' delays with recent Win 7 updates)... One out of three perfectly good, fully updated, sanitized and clean booted Win 7 Pro machines will NOT update to Windows 10 Pro... most common is error code 0x80070057. Rather frustrating.
    I've done clean boots. I've tried every fix I can find online (run all the 'Fix-It' apps) and still many machines give the error. Anyone find a 'sure fire' for it?
    Thanks very much

    .........Win 7 Pro machines will NOT update to Windows 10 Pro............

    Were you doing "update" via Windows Update ?

    If yes, try the upgrade via iso file..... In-place Upgrade Install.
    You can also do a Clean Install directly from Win 7 to Win 10.

    Did you use Windows Update or the Media Creation Tool?
    Did you try the upgrade after a clean boot?
    Did you disable the a/v?

    Saw this registry update on reddit which a lot of people said helped:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdat e\UX] "IsConvergedUpdateStackEnabled"=dword:00000000
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdat e\UX\Settings] "UxOption"=dword:00000000

    Thanks... Yes to clean install... downloaded direct from MS not thru Win Update... did the registry checks, those were not in the registry on these three machines. But I will check again. Also used the 'fixits' and so forth. Turned off all A/V, etc... and, a search will demonstrate, this is a common occur. Thanks again
