    When trying to setup Windows 10 (inline upgrade from Windows 8.1 with the Media Creation Tool x64), I get:

    Windows 10 Setup
    Something happened
    0x80070002 – 0x20016

    Can anyone help?

    My colleague has just told me that:

    …if you are doing an in-place upgrade with Win 7 SP1 you will need to change your locale and region to US otherwise you get a useful “something went wrong” error

    Unfortunately, I’ve already downloaded an ISO for Windows 10 from another PC, to get around the 0x80070002 – 0x20016 error.
