    I have an old Windows 7 Acer computer system and I decided to upgrade the operating system to Windows 10. But in the middle of the installation process I received an Error code: 80004005.

    I have visited several forums regarding Error code: 80004005 when upgrading to Windows 10 and noticed each problems to have a checklist. I have enough available storage and not less than 12GB, so USB hard drive is not necessary. My computer fits the criteria for an upgrade and since I have more than required space available, I am not prompted for an external drive.

    No other issues I have seen for having the Error code: 80004005. So far, only few discussions about this problem are available on the internet. Any workaround and fixes will be highly appreciated.
    Thanks.
