Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum.
Did you begin the Win 10 upgrade process ? If yes, at what stage exactly it fails with this error ?
This seems to be a driver related problem for the video/graphic card :
- Please, update all your drivers prior to updating to Windows 10

If you are now stuck, please, press the power-on PC button, keep it for some seconds to power off the machine. Start it again and let me know if you boot in Windows (to normal Win desktop). If YES, perform the steps above. If not, please post back

once i found the driver causing the problem in ..\system32 folder i researched to find who the driver vendor was and once i found that i resolved by uninstalling additional video drivers for viewspan, then started the windows 10 upgrade again and it completed without error.
lesson learned - always research the driver in the error then remove if not essential, reinstall after sucessful upgrade.
