    I have reset my computer to factory, (Win 7), installed my Win 8 disk, have tried everything to get all my updates, clean install, update fixer, still
    get the reverting error message. Can I jump to Win 10, if I have not concluded all the Win. 8 updates?

    Thanks,Very often when there is a problem updating that error message appears, I have had it often and was able to fix, in this case I could not. Went back to Win.7 has all the updates and will install Win. 10 from there

    Hey aldan, You can upgrade win7 or win 8.1 to 10 but NOT win 8 to 10?

    edit: I have played with both and wouldn't give 15cents for either!!!!

    well, I did install 10 and play with it but came to the conclusion that my 7 as tweaked and protected as it is will be my choice thru 2020 and maybe some beyond..... I have Linux Netrunner and will convert to that full time if M$ doesn't get their head out of someone's Bumhole..... :rolleyes:
