W7 To W10 With Language / Version Error

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this has been covered before, didn't find it by searching.

I had an Acer Aspire running W7, not been connected for 2 years, so thought I'd better make sure it still works. All OK so decided to try and upgrade to W10. Using the MS upgrade tool failed with an error relating to the language and version (common error).

To get around this I followed this article https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-windows_install/how-to-upgrade-to-windows-10-using-windows-10-iso/3a5eaa7d-99dd-4d61-92ba-79019e5b4f1c

Basically instead of downloading the MS Windows 10 upgrade tool and running it,  instead select Create installation media for another PC from here https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10?ranMID=24542&ranEAID=IokOf8qagZo&ranSiteID=IokOf8qagZo-TBN4ooxRNr.ZuzPQl1VhCw&epi=IokOf8qagZo-TBN4ooxRNr.ZuzPQl1VhCw&irgwc=1&OCID=AID2000142_aff_7593_1243925&tduid=(ir__i3izzljiyokft3rnkk0sohz3xm2xn0rqp1jmri3600)(7593)(1243925)(IokOf8qagZo-TBN4ooxRNr.ZuzPQl1VhCw)()&irclickid=_i3izzljiyokft3rnkk0sohz3xm2xn0rqp1jmri3600?ranMID=24542&ranEAID=IokOf8qagZo&ranSiteID=IokOf8qagZo-TBN4ooxRNr.ZuzPQl1VhCw&epi=IokOf8qagZo-TBN4ooxRNr.ZuzPQl1VhCw&irgwc=1&OCID=AID2000142_aff_7593_1243925&tduid=(ir__i3izzljiyokft3rnkk0sohz3xm2xn0rqp1jmri3600)(7593)(1243925)(IokOf8qagZo-TBN4ooxRNr.ZuzPQl1VhCw)()&irclickid=_i3izzljiyokft3rnkk0sohz3xm2xn0rqp1jmri3600


Download the file to a memory stick (min 8G) and then once it completes you can plug the memory stick into a PC, open the memory stick, look in the downloaded folder and double click "set up". Takes ages but works great.
