I can't update Windows 10, what to do?
If you’re greeted by the message "This computer cannot be upgraded to Windows 10" after trying the above procedures, we advise you to give up for now and try again at a later date. Hopefully, Microsoft will have already fixed the issues that made this upgrade incompatible with your computer.
As a last resort, you can rerun the media creation tool and choose the Create installation media (USB flash drive, DVD or ISO file) option for another PC. Follow the instructions to create a bootable USB , burn the Windows 10 ISO image to a DVD, and use that external drive to perform a clean OS installation. For more details, see "Using the installation media you created” in this article. We do not recommend that you do this unless you’re well acquainted with the process and even then, we cannot guarantee that it will work as Windows may have blocked this upgrade path for your PC.
