Do a manual install. The windows upgrade feature is notoriously broken and is guaranteed to break the whole OS install even if it works. People have had massive issues, BSODs, hardware not working as intended, it's just a mess. Do the smart thing and do a fresh windows ten Install

I've had a similar problem before. Open "Disk Management". The issue is probably not the free space on your partition, but the boot partition. That one might be too small. I think it needs to be 500 MB for Windows 10.

Hmm. Why can't you buy a USB? You only need an 8gb one and they're only a few bucks, that's probably going to be your easiest way out

How do I increase the boot partition size?

I think I ended up using GParted (on Linux), since I have a dual boot system. Also tried a couple of other things. In the end, none of them worked. The only working solution was a fresh install of Windows.

I will have to wait until tomorrow then.

Oh, ok. I believe, you can partition off your C drive as a "bootable disk" and install the installer there

 

Here's a tutorial:

Windows 10 is too big for DVD's now despite "burn to DVD" being an option in the upgrade tool lol

Come on y'all, you're really just throwing spaghetti at the wall here.

 

First: 

- Either acquire an 8GB flash drive, or burn a DVD (eg a dual layer disc if the OS image is too large)

 

Second

- Boot the flash drive in UEFI mode and just format the drive.

 

Then install the OS.

 

The problem here, is that you're trying to do an in-place upgrade (presumably to keep the Windows 10 free update)

 

Download the upgrade tool from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 and do NOT create media, just straight up upgrade the PC. 

 

With that said, I'd suggest creating the media to a flash drive in case you screw up the install, because if it screws up half way, you'll have no working OS.
