Windows Update Error 80070643 When Upgrading From Windows 8.1

Jul 29, 2015

On Window 8.1. Boosted the install which a lot of people are doing by clearing SoftwareDistribution/Download and running the cmd prompt.

Downloaded the Windows 10 update, as soon as the Preparing to Install dialogue was done, the computer restart, trying to install a normal Windows 8.1 update instead.

Once I am booted up again, I get this error [URL] .... and try the fix.

Once I try and redownload the update again, it skips to 100%, then fails the update with the error 80070643 being reported.

Upgrading From Corrupt Windows 8.1

Aug 6, 2015

I'm currently running a PC on Windows 8.1. Of the course of it's use, I've had numerous problems with installing drivers and other software and have tried multiple times to clean install the OS from the disk. I've gotten to the point where I can't install most software I download for some reason and I can't get Windows update. Any type of sfc, dism /RestoreHealth, or other commands of the like always return unfixable errors. Would my problems be fixed by choosing the "clean install" option on the upgrade or would lingering system files cause me trouble down the road? If the latter is true, is there a way to use my upgrade on a new SSD I plan to buy?

Lost Programs After Upgrading From Windows 7?

Sep 6, 2015

I have tried to install the latest version of a program that I had installed in Windows 7 but the installation process said that a previous version was still present. The install app offered to uninstall the old version but for some reason did not install the new version. When I tried to install once more I got the same message. I have attached a snip-it picture of the message.

Where All Music Files Gone After Upgrading From Windows 7

Jan 25, 2016

I had music files on my laptop which was running windows 7, but when I upgraded to windows 10 I can no longer find them and the available space is not now large enough to put the music back from an external drive, which leads me to think that these files are still somewhere on my hard drive.

After upgrading from windows 8.1 to 10, my monitor stopped working, showing a "no signal" error then popping to black screen. The computer works I can hear it running when I power on, but the monitor shows nothing.

I tried to remove the CMOS battery for a few minutes (something I read from another thread), but didn't work.

Upgrading From Windows 8.1 While Switching SSDs

Sep 17, 2015

I have recently purchased a new laptop, one that houses a rather small SSD. As well, it comes with Win 8.1 and I am quite eager to migrate to Win 10 as soon as I can (or at least as soon as the first Service Pack is released). A new SSD has been purchased and is intended to be installed right away.

From what I gather on the forums, would the following be the best way to upgrade to Win 10 on my new SSD?:

1. Launch the brand new laptop and immediately begin cloning the old SSD onto the new SSD using Win 8.1.
2. Install the new SSD, which now has Win 8.1.
3. Upgrade to Win 10 with the new SSD.

I'll then go about doing a clean install.

When Upgrading Windows Update Screen Shown And Nothing

Jan 31, 2016

It says "downloading windows 10"and i get the icon scrolling but then it just takes me to the windows update screen that shows me my current updates are up to date. I've tried this over a dozen times now, even going as far as disabling my windows firewall and ms essentials....still nothing. I've installed the updates that were optional as well as the required ones but it still will not launch. Downloaded the windows 10 update.exe from microsoft directly and it does the same thing as the one in the taskbar. What else should I do? Maybe it's a sign I just keep 7 (ultimate btw) for a much longer time.

Installation :: Install Windows 8.1 On New Hard Disk Before Upgrading?

Jan 30, 2016

I have a laptop that came with Windows 8.1. The hard drive failed and has been replaced with a new hard drive. If I want to install Windows 10 on this laptop, do I first need to install Windows 8.1. and then perform the upgrade to Windows 10, or can I just install Windows 10? Will Windows 10 use the Windows 8.1 license key in the BIOS to activate? Or will this not work unless I first install Windows 8.1. and then upgrade to Windows 10?

This computer has never had Windows 10 on it.

The computer has a new unformatted hard disk that has never had Windows 8.1. installed.

Lost Windows Live Mail Messages After Upgrading

Sep 4, 2015

A good friend of mine went ahead and updated from Win 7 to win 10 without backing up anything (despite my objections) and now has windows live mail but any of his old email messages are gone. I would suspect they are in the windows. Old folder in .app but not sure. Does windows 10 store the emails in the .app file like win 7? I am using Win 7 and will upgrade once I know that everything is working with 10.
