nzrocketman:benokobi:benokobi:MikeB4: OK I did this and my Surface is now installing Windows 10. It would seem that it had stalled somewhere in the process..
What this error means is, your Windows 10 installation folder is unfinished and/or corrupted. Now, how do you fix that?
1. Go into "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download" and delete everything in that folder.
2. Now, run the command prompt as an administrator. Type in "wuauclt.exe /updatenow".
3. Go to your Control Panel > Windows Update and your Windows 10 should start re-downloading from scratch, hopefully without flaws this time.
Worked perfectly up to 30% so far
97% at this rate this will be the last post on windows 8

Haha. It's installing now.
