Customer Question
desktop computer that currently uses...
I purchased Windows10 Pro and tried to install it on my desktop computer that currently uses the Windows 7 Professional (with service pack one) Operating System. The error message I get is as follows: "Setup Couldn't start properly. Please reboot your PC and try running Windows10 Startup again". I tried rebooting several times but keep getting this message. I even disabled my virus protection software (ESET Smart Security) and rebooted but got the same error message. My computer is an HP ProDesk 400 G1 MT with 64-bit operating system, Intel Core 3.30 GHZ, and 8.00GB of RAM.

Just to clarify, are you trying to install Windows 10 using an installation disk or a downloaded file?

Downloadable file via internet from the Microsoft store. I paid $199.99 and have a product key.

Sorry, the steps are a bit delicate and can corrupt your system files and/or operating system if not carried out correctly. Can we go ahead with a secure remote session so that I can carry them out at your screen now?

Software technician: Bryan, Computer Support Specialist replied 8 months ago

The payment for the remote assistance offer seems to have failed for some reason; no issues, let me set up a free remote session instead.

Please open up the following link on your computer:

www.fastsupport.com/286998175
Follow the on-screen prompts to open/run the remote file, and click Yes when prompted to allow the remote connection. We will then be connected.
