    Hey mate, what have you tried already? I assume you've googled this?

    First thing that comes to mind is running sfc /scannow

    I also did a quick google and it's one of the suggestions listed here also: https://windowsreport.com/fix-autor...s, the autorun.,may cause various error codes.

    Have you checked the install/upgrade log? It probably gives more verbose error output than that single error message. Without seeing the log it's difficult to diagnose.

    I believe the logs are in %systemroot%\panther. You might need to take ownership of the files to view them.

    Good Morning,

    Thank you for your responses I forgot to mention I am installing Pro from a USB and that's where I am getting the error message once I click setup...

    @Kopite_21 , did you check the logs?

    I've had issues installing Windows 10 in the past from USB. I think it was when it was plugged into a USB 3.0 port, I think the issue was Windows setup didn't have access to the USB 3.0 drivers during setup. Are you running the upgrade from the OS or are you booting from the USB?

    As I said, the primary source of truth in any instance is going to be the logs, so you should really check them first. They'll likely tell you exactly what the problem is.
     
  6. Could you repackage a new win 10 installation into the usb and try

    Again ???
