    "Failed to create WinPE rollback directory" upgrading virtual guest from Win7 to W10

    I am trying to upgrade a Virtualbox virtual machine guest from Win7 SP1 to Win10 using the Media Creation tool/iso. Amongst many other things, I have stripped down drivers/devices, removed non-present devices and ran removal tools for Acronis and Kaspersky. Not sure if Macrium has a remove tool.

    I have tried to reinstall windows 7 keeping programs but this stalls at gathering settings etc. Windows 10 upgrade reverts to previous version at about 25%.

    Win10 upgrade Setuperr.log in the Rollback folder says only:

    2017-08-11 13:58:56, Error IBSLIB OSRollbackService::CBootFilesRestoreCheckpoint::Rollback: Failed to create WinPE rollback directory: D:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\Rollback\WinPE[gle=0x000000b7]

    The Setupact.log around that time stamp (not complete log) says:

    I'm wondering whether it is boot sector related even though Windows boots.

    I've spent a very long time on this, made lots of progress but I'm running out of options now.

    Do you have to upgrade?

    Why not just install W10 into the virtual box?

    Thanks for your reply @jcgriff2.

    It can't stay as it is, it needs either a repair install of Win7 or an upgrade to Win10. A clean install is not an option.
