Windows 10 Will not install

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Error message0x8007042B-0x4000D

The installation failed in the SECOND_BOOT phase with an error during MIGRATE_DATA operation.


This happened with a free upgrade while:

1) installing directly to the hard drive

2) installing from a USB with the applicationi

3) as well as purchased SW upgrade from Microsoft to migrate from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10


anyone have a solution to complete the install ?

A six year old HD is beyond its duty cycle. The 0x8007042B error usually pops up when the system is crashed due to the damage or corrupted files.  I would remove the hard drive, and replace with same capacity.

IMHO< the only fix is to purchase WIN 10 and install as new.
