If this is not the correct area please feel free to move this posting. People need to be WARNED! Don't believe Microsoft that your machine is ready for their "free upgrade".

Especially if you use SSD or Intel RAID you will more than likely have to restore from an image or just lose your machine. Just Google some of the horror stories. MS does NOT even know why the upgrades are failing yet they still push them!!!

This has been more common than people realize, best case scenario, you have to install win 10 twice just for it to run the first time

They are failing because users don't read anything and just blame anyone and everyone else for their shortcomings
