Hi Joseph,

Before using the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant, perform these steps:

  • set Windows 7 updates to "Never install updates".
  • Stop the update service by right clicking on the command prompt, and choose "Run as administrator".
  • Type "NET STOP WUAUSERV" (without the quotes). It should say: "Windows update service is update service is stopped."

After completing the above steps, start the Windows 10 Upgrade assistant, and it should complete
